Statistically speaking flying is safer than driving a car, however, research indicates as many as 20% of all people have some fear of flying and more have an extreme fear of flying.
You may be afraid because you have never been on an airplane before, or you may have had a traumatic experience in the past while flying and developed a fear based on that event. Some people develop a fear of flying for no apparent reason – it just appears without any warning. Regardless of where you fall in this range of flying phobia, we can help you resolve this issue and take to the air calmly and confidently.
About The Fear Of Flying
Fear of flying is a learned response to a particular situation. Somewhere in the past you developed an unconscious pattern of thought that associates flying with something that is frightening. Some common feelings we hear from clients with this fear include:
- I’m afraid the airplane will crash
- I feel like I’m not in control
- I feel claustrophobic
- I’m worried I’ll be sick
- I’m scared of turbulence
Some fear is even experienced at the time or booking or even thinking about a possible flight far into the future.
You could feel something completely different but either way, you might deal with the situation by managing your fear with breathing, or alcohol or prescription medication. These methods work short term. The fear is still there when the drugs wear off. A much better and more permanent approach is to eliminate the fear altogether, and that’s exactly what NLP and hypnotherapy can do for you.
