No amount of Rescue Remedy or smelling salts is going to get an aerophobe to board a plane and if you really want to tackle a fear of flying then it needs to be tackled from within.
A huge factor in overcoming fears and phobias is relaxation and relaxation plays a large role in the inner workings of hypnotherapy. Helping the patient to become relaxed is often one of the very first steps in the routine of many hypnotherapists. The process will usually begin with the practitioner helping the individual into a deeply relaxed trance like state, as this will allow them to gain access to the patients subconscious mind, the area in which much of the hypnotherapy magic happens.
Once the hypnotherapist has access to the individuals subconscious, they will be able to address the origins of the issue and tackle the negative thoughts and images associated with flying.
Once the origins and route cause have been explored and understood positive changes and suggestions can begin to be implemented. This is done through helping the subconscious mind to communicate with the conscious in order to alter perceptions and programme the mind with a new pattern of behaviour.
Many hypnotherapists will often complete your course of treatment by teaching you certain self-hypnosis techniques which will help you to implement them on your own. This way you can create your own state of calm and awareness when ever you feel you need to.
