Help to Overcome a Phobia with Hypnotherapy*

Any form of phobia can be distressing, especially if this is affecting your life on a regular basis. Phobias take many forms and include a fear of flying, certain insects or animals, social situations, doctors, dentists and the sight of needles. The list is extensive and there is unlikely to be a rational explanation. Hypnotherapy at the Conway Practice however, can help you to overcome your phobia, whichever form it takes by identifying the specific triggers which are the root cause of your fear.

Phobias can generally be traced back to an incident or influence often as far back as early childhood. Perhaps a parent or sibling experienced the same fear which has been inherited without any conscious awareness, resulting in stress and anxiety. Overcoming this without being able to recognise the root cause can be overwhelming and have a negative impact on the enjoyment of daily life, even more so if you are exposed to unavoidable anxiety-provoking situations.

During hypnosis to help you overcome a phobia , Jonathan will take you back to the origins of your first phobic reaction which has been recorded deeply within your subconscious mind.* You will learn how to manage your fear and reduce the negative physical reactions such as a feeling of panic and nausea or an increased heart rate which occur even at the thought of being faced with the source of your phobia.* Changes can be made at a conscious level, re-coding the negative messages which have automatically triggered the panic response.*

Hypnotherapy sessions with Jonathan will enable you to develop coping mechanisms and relaxation techniques to ease the particular phobic stimulus which has been causing the anxiety.* Instead of doing everything possible to avoid being confronted with a phobic environment, hypnotherapy can be very effective in re-programming your mind, enabling you to face your fear and bring about positive change.*

Overcome a Fear of Flying with Hypnotherapy in Brighton*

A holiday should be something to look forward to; a time to relax and enjoy well-earned leisure time. For some however, when this involves travelling by air the anxiety caused simply at the thought of boarding an aeroplane may be overwhelming. At the Conway Practice in Brighton hypnotherapy can help to overcome a fear of flying or other related travel phobias.*

No one is born with a phobia. This develops through external influences, including upsetting personal experiences, parental conditioning or even exposure to distressing incidents through the media whether these are fact or fiction. It can be difficult to identify the source of the fear, or what exactly you are afraid of and a fear of flying can actually be a combination of phobias. During sessions applying hypnosis, Jonathan will help you to trace the source of your anxiety that is limiting the enjoyment of your daily life.*

The fight or flight reaction is often irrational, but nonetheless it can be both physically and emotionally distressing and difficult on your own to identify where this stems from. Hypnotherapy enables feelings stored deeply in the subconscious mind to be brought to the surface and replaced with positive thought and actions.* The fear may not be directly related to a concern that the aircraft will fail to get you safely to your destination, but more about a fear of not being in control and having to put your safety in the hands of others you don’t know and trust.

Your travel anxiety may be a form of claustrophobia, triggering extreme anxiety at the thought of being in a restricted space and unable to leave when you choose. This can be combined with a social phobia, when the anticipation of being in the crowded environment of an airport terminal triggers a feeling of extreme discomfort. Recognising how a fear of flying developed, allows the phobia to be managed and viewed from a far more positive perspective, putting you back in control. Jonathan will explain how hypnotherapy can open the mind to new thought processes, replacing negative beliefs with de-stressing techniques and positive coping mechanisms.* Once your mind is able to interpret the event of flying as pleasurable, you will experience the pleasure of excitement and leave the anxiety behind.*

Help to Manage a Fear of Flying with Hypnotherapy*

fear of flyingHave you booked your flight and are dreading the day of travel, or are avoiding travelling by air completely, unable to face boarding an aeroplane? Help is available to overcome a fear of flying with hypnotherapy at the Conway Practice.*

Hypnosis is used as a safe and medication-free therapeutic technique inducing a deep sense of relaxation, similar to being in a day-dream where you are still aware of what is happening around you and are completely in control.* You will be able to follow the suggestions that Jonathan makes during this hypnotic state, enabling you to make positive change to any negative thoughts or misplaced beliefs you may have stored over a long period of time in your subconscious mind.*

A fear of flying, or aerophobia can actually be a combination of phobias and while undergoing hypnotherapy these can be easily identified and addressed.* Is your fear perhaps not due to being afraid of crashing, but a form of social anxiety where you are anxious about spending time with strangers in a situation where you will have no means of escape? It’s common for stress levels to rise simply at the thought of being in the airport terminal with crowds of people in an unfamiliar environment away from the familiarity of home or wherever you consider to be your place of safety.

For many, air travel means being not being in control over a considerable length of time and having to rely on the pilot and crew for a safe arrival. This fear is often experienced in other forms of transport where someone else is in the driving seat, such as on a train or as a passenger in a car when you are unable to get off when you choose. A travel phobia can not only severely restrict your opportunities to enjoy holidays with friends and family, but may well also have a limiting affect on your professional life if business travel is a requirement.

During hypnosis negative thought patterns and can be re-programmed, helping you to overcome suppressed emotions and phobias by replacing them with positive thoughts, resulting in increased confidence and self-belief.* Jonathan will show how you can access this calm state of mind whenever you feel the need to reduce your stress levels before and during your journey.*

With over 21 years of experience, Jonathan Conway is a highly qualified NLP Master Practitioner & NLP Coach, providing sessions in hypnosis from his consulting rooms in London and East Sussex.

Overcome a Fear of Flying & Other Travel Phobias with Hypnotherapy*

fear-of-flying-brightonAre your family and friends planning their Summer holiday abroad and you are simply too afraid to contemplate getting on an aeroplane to travel with them? Hypnotherapy can help with a fear of flying by dealing with the deeper reasons for your phobia.* Contrary to what you may believe, the core problem may not be worrying that the aeroplane will crash. It may be more related to a fear that you won’t be in control during the journey and that you will be putting your trust in a stranger to get you safely to your destination.

You may well be experiencing a combination of phobias, including a fear of being confined in a small place for a long period of time (claustrophobia), without being able to escape should you wish to do so. This isn’t always limited to flying and can include train journeys, or being a passenger in a car where you are relying on the person in the driving seat. This anxiety may start well before the journey begins, anticipating something that may never happen. During hypnosis sessions with Jonathan at the Conway Practice, these negative thoughts will be addressed and traced back to incidents that may have occurred in the past.*

You might have stored negative influences deep in the subconscious originating from reports in the media of travel accidents or a graphic disaster movie, without even being aware of the affect these have had on the anxiety you are now experiencing. If you have a social phobia, your concern about sitting next to someone you don’t know during a flight without being able to move away to your own personal space is likely to trigger anxiety when you think of boarding an aeroplane.

This travel phobia can cause you to not only miss out on leisure breaks, but it can also adversely affect your career if you are required to travel as part of your professional duties. Jonathan will provide help with hypnotherapy and guide you in relaxation and stress-reducing techniques which you can apply before and during your journey to eliminate your fear.* There will be no longer be a need for air travel to signal danger.*

How Hypnotherapy Can Help You to Overcome a Fear of Flying*

fear-of-flying-brightonAre friends or family preparing to fly off on holiday and leave you grounded as you can’t face boarding the aeroplane? As much as you would like to travel with them, perhaps you feel that you have to accept the situation, but this really needn’t be the case as hypnotherapy can help you to overcome a fear of flying*

At the Conway Practice, during hypnotherapy sessions with Jonathan Conway the source of your fear can be brought to light.* Contrary to what many might think, this is often not as simple as being afraid of crashing and other factors could well be involved. Perhaps you are uncomfortable at being seated next to a stranger for a considerable period of time and are concerned that you may embarrass yourself if you panic during the flight. Social anxiety frequently has a part to play in travel phobias and can be triggered even at the thought of being held in a large crowd at the airport or having to make small talk or eat in front of someone you don’t know on the aeroplane.

There is also the factor that you are not in control while you are in the air and you are relying on someone you have probably never met to get you safely to your destination. In the past you may have summoned the courage to board the plane and then spent the time away dwelling anxiously on the return journey. This fear of flying can not only spoil leisure trips but may also adversely affect business commitments if you are unable to travel by air for meetings.

During hypnosis, Jonathan Conway will trace the origins of your travel phobia,  helping to you deal with your anxiety and you will learn how to practice relaxation techniques on your own whenever you are in a situation that you find stressful.*

Help to manage your individual fear response with positive visualisation and deep breathing exercises together with self-hypnosis and NLP anchoring techniques will potentially open up a whole new world for you where you will find you actually look forward to flying.*

Don’t let a Fear of Flying Spoil your Holiday Plans

fear-of-flying-brightonAs family and friends start to search through the travel brochures for this year’s holiday, are you someone who has a flying phobia and dreads the thought of boarding an aeroplane? However much you might want to join in and enjoy an overseas break, your anxiety may just be too overwhelming for you to make the journey.

At the Conway Practice in Harley Street, Jonathan Conway provides sessions in hypnotherapy to help overcome a fear of flying or other travel phobias.* Aerophobia is actually very common, but it may not be as obvious as some phobias as air travel can generally be avoided without others even being aware that there is a problem. You may not be conscious of the cause of your fear and it can be linked to something as seemingly insignificant as watching a film or a graphic media coverage which has featured an incident in the air.*

The issue isn’t simply about a fear of the aircraft crashing, as there are often other factors to consider. While you are in the deeply relaxed state of hypnosis, it is easier to reach the deeper thoughts you have stored in your subconscious mind. The root cause of your anxiety may for instance be due to a fear of not being in complete control and having to rely not only on a stranger flying the plane who is responsible for your safety. Also you may feel you are trapped for the duration of the journey and unable to leave if you wanted to.

This then isn’t only restricted to air travel and many who are too afraid to fly, also become anxious when they find themselves in any situation where someone else is in the driving seat, whether that may be a train, plane or even as a passenger in a car. This can be severely life-limiting, both for meeting professional obligations and for pleasure.

During hypnotherapy sessions, Jonathan will address the thoughts that have been negatively affecting the true sense of reality, enabling positive change to take place.* Deep breathing and visualisation exercises will help you to release your fears and reduce your anxiety level,  ensuring you will be able to relax and enjoy your new found freedom.*

How a Fear of Flying and Other Travel Phobias can be Helped with Hypnotherapy*

fear-of-flying-brightonWe are often aware if someone has a fear of flying as it’s difficult to conceal when there are constant excuses to avoid boarding an aeroplane. A high percentage of people find air travel nerve-wracking, but for many it’s a terrifying experience that becomes impossible to face. This distress can not only ruin the chance of enjoying a more exotic holiday, but it can often leave families separated on the other side of the globe or severely affect the ability to attend important business commitments.

The key to dealing with the problem is in identifying the root cause.  Jonathan Conway provides help with hypnotherapy for a fear of flying and other travel phobias at the Conway Practice.* Although a fear of travelling by plane may be connected to a personal experience of an upsetting incident, it can also simply be  influenced by watching a film or graphic images in a news report of an incident in the air. This might then remain in the sub-conscious as a ‘what if it happens to me’ statement.

Aviophobia is by no means the only cause of anxiety connected with travel and there are generally recognisable links to other phobias, or conditioned responses such as agoraphobia. For example you may become anxious well before leaving home, due to the fear of being away from where you feel safe. On the other hand, you could find that you have a serious problem with travelling if you are not able to remain in control throughout the journey. Anxiety is likely to set in if you feel trapped and are forced to rely on someone else in the driving seat, whether that may be in a car, train or aeroplane.

Hypnotherapy can help you to take the steps to overcome your anxiety issues connected with travel.* Jonathan will show you relaxation and positive visualisation techniques during hypnosis, a natural and non-invasive form of therapy.* The power of positive thought should widen your horizons and help you to regain your freedom and enjoy your travels.*

How Hypnotherapy in Harley Street Helps With Travel Phobias*

fear-of-flying-brightonIf you find that you are overly anxious at the thought of having to go somewhere that is outside of your ‘comfort zone’, you may be among many who struggle to cope with a travel phobia. Even those whose work compels them to live life on the road can experience periods when they become stressed simply at the thought of the journey ahead.

This can be extremely stressful and self-limiting, taking control of your life. However, you should be aware that you don’t need to accept this and help is available for all forms of travel anxiety with hypnotherapy at the Conway Practice in Harley Street*.

Travel phobias tend to share common root causes and in fact may be a combination of phobias. A fear of flying for instance, may be linked to control; being afraid of not being in control and unable to get off the plane when you choose to, or losing control in front of others if you are in a state of panic. You may feel that you are ‘trapped’ there for the duration of the journey. This can also relate to a train, bus or car journey when you aren’t at the wheel and are reliant on someone else who is possibly a stranger, to get you to your destination safely.

These phobias can frequently be traced back to upsetting incidents in the past which remain lodged as negative thoughts deep in your sub-conscious and create a pattern that now leads to a fearful phobic response. A disaster movie or media coverage showing any accidents involving travel can often trigger a negative association with travelling, even though you haven’t been personally involved and you become overly concerned with what ‘might happen’.

If your fear of flying or other travel phobias has been causing anxiety and stress, you will know just how debilitating this can be, affecting not only your personal relationships but also your work life.

During relaxed hypnotherapy sessions, Jonathan will guide you through positive visualisation techniques*. Your irrational fears will be uncovered*,eliminating your conditioned response to the stimulus*, whatever that may be. This might prove to have developed from a specific activity of incident way back in the past that you may not even be aware of, having repressed the conscious memory of the event.

Through hypnosis in Harley Street you will learn how to deal with your phobia positively and understand there is no longer a threat*. Fear will be replaced with self-confidence and a feeling of calm, leaving you with a well-balanced coping strategy*.

How Hypnotherapy in Brighton Can Help With Your Fear of Flying*

fear-of-flying-brightonAre you missing out on holidays or business trips abroad due the dread of getting on an aeroplane? You can be free of your fear of flying through help with hypnotherapy at the Conway Practice in Brighton*. 

This phobia is actually very common, with an estimated one out of ten people in the UK trying to cope with the problem, although this may in fact be even higher.

The fear may not actually be linked directly to the aircraft, but is likely to be a combination of phobias including claustrophobia, a fear of enclosed spaces. You could become anxious at the thought of being ‘trapped’ with strangers without an option to leave when you choose. Of course there is often anxiety about the safety aspect of flying, but you may be more concerned over how you will react in front of others if you panic and show that you are distressed.

However much reassurance you may get from family and friends that air travel is one of the safest ways to travel and that your fear of flying is irrational, you probably find it hard to be convinced. This is due to a ‘conditioned response’.  Anxiety is often triggered by the thought of leaving home and your ‘comfort zone’. You may find for example that you also become anxious about travelling in any situation where you aren’t behind the wheel and you are relying on someone else to get you safely to your destination.

Hypnotherapy has produced excellent results in dealing with all forms of travel phobias*.  If you are unsure of what to expect during the sessions at the Conway Practice, Jonathan will gently take you through the experience, with the assurance that you will remain in control and lucid throughout the hypnosis, just as if you were in a daydream-like state*.

You will be shown how to deal with the root cause, the trigger to your fears and how to manage them in the long term*. Flying will become a pleasure to look forward to, knowing you will be completely relaxed before and during the flight with no anxious feelings about the return journey*.

So much can be achieved through hypnotherapy to remove the stress and anxiety of flying and other travel phobias*.

No one is born with a phobia or chooses to be scared and hypnosis will liberate you from your fears*, leaving you free to broaden your horizons and your experience of life as a confident passenger.

Help For Your Fear of Flying with Hypnotherapy in Harley Street*

fear-of-flying-brightonAre you envious of others as they prepare to take off for a Summer holiday abroad, aware that your fear of flying prevents you from getting on an aeroplane?

This overwhelming fear may have been with you for as long as you can remember, or it could be something that has only developed recently. You might feel that despite a longing to travel, nothing and no one will persuade you to travel by air.

This however needn’t continue and the problem can be successfully resolved with hypnotherapy in Harley Street at the Conway Practice*.

During hypnosis, Jonathan Conway will find the trigger to the phobia as you may not be consciously aware of what causes your anxiety*.

It’s quite common for example to be haunted by incidents you’ve seen or read about in the news, or by disaster movies and these visions are now buried in your subconscious. Even though flying is still the safest form of travel, nothing has been able to shift those thoughts from your mind.

As a fear of flying is often a combination of phobias, while you are in the deeply relaxed state of hypnosis feelings can be released, enabling the root cause to be established*.  Your anxiety for instance may actually be due to a fear of losing control in front of strangers with no means of escape, or of simply being in a confined space.

Many begin to feel anxious just at the thought of being in an airport terminal, or away from home where they feel safe. 

Why let your phobia prevent you from experiencing and enjoying life as you would like to do?

Hypnotherapy sessions with Jonathan will give you the opportunity to look forward to holidays with family and friends, or to travel abroad on business without feeling anxious or distressed*.

You will not only appreciate that air travel is safe, you will actually be able to enjoy the experience*.
