How hypnotherapy can help to overcome a fear of flying*
For many, the anticipation of jetting away on an aeroplane is exciting, but when the level of excitement increases to extreme anxiety, air travel is no longer a pleasure. At the Conway Practice, hypnotherapy can help to overcome a fear of flying by identifying the source of your phobia and the subconscious reaction to the triggers which prompt the ‘flight or fight’ response to perceived danger.*
Hypnosis addresses the default negative thinking which fuels panic and anxiety and replaces any irrational fears with more positive coping mechanisms.* When you say that you are afraid to board an aircraft, this may not actually be due to the dread of not surviving the journey, but is related to other phobias. Feelings of claustrophobia for example can be triggered by a lack of personal space and confinement, with no opportunity to escape.
You might also become fearful in situations where you are not in control. As a passenger you are putting your safety in the hands of a stranger who is behind the doors of the cockpit and who you may never see. If you experienced discomfort in a previous flight, your subconscious will have recorded this as a threatening event with the false belief that there will be a recurrence every time you are in a similar environment.
A state of extreme anxiety at the thought of being confined in close proximity with unfamiliar fellow passengers, can be due to a social phobia and an overwhelming concern that you will embarrass yourself in front of others.
Over time you will have conditioned yourself to react with a stress response to certain situations which your non-conscious mind considers to be threatening.
Hypnotherapy is an effective tool to release and re-frame these outdated beliefs and critical thinking.* This becomes easier when you are deeply relaxed during hypnosis and the pathway to the mind is open to positive suggestion. During sessions with hypnosis at the Conway Practice, Jonathan will explore your past experiences which are the trigger to your fear of flying and help you to achieve
higher levels of calm and positivity through relaxation and calming methods.* For more information call Jonathan Conway today on 07956 855 027
How hypnotherapy in Brighton can help with travel phobias*
If you are one of the many who experience anxiety when travelling, at the Conway Practice in Brighton, hypnotherapy can help you to overcome a fear of flying or other travel phobias.* During your first session with hypnosis, Jonathan will begin by talking through the fears that are affecting your life and how specific situations trigger stress.
Travel anxiety is rarely uniquely related to being afraid of risking your safety, but can actually be a combination of phobias which have developed as a result of past influences and negative experiences and are now stored deeply in the subconscious mind. With the help of hypnotherapy, these can be identified and replaced with a more positive and calm mindset.*
You may become anxious at the thought of not being in control and unable to escape from the situation when you choose. Air travel is a good example, when having committed to boarding the aeroplane you are trapped for the duration of the journey and are reliant on a stranger’s ability to get you to your destination. Aviophobia may be traced back to the negative impact of media reporting on air accidents or to a particularly graphic disaster movie, causing an unrealistic perception of the possible dangers in air travel.
The fear of being in a confined space (claustrophobia), can trigger acute anxiety simply by anticipating a panic attack in the presence of fellow passengers. The perception that your anxiety will be visible to others can result in the avoidance of travelling on any public transport. This can limit not only personal pleasure, but may also restrict career prospects when travel is a requirement within the professional role. Hypnotherapy in Brighton & Hove can help to restore confidence with relaxation techniques and calming methods, introducing positive affirmations which will open up new opportunities and enable you to finally enjoy the journey.*

Help to overcome a phobia with hypnotherapy in Brighton*
If you have a particular phobia you may do everything you can to avoid being in an environment where you are concerned this may arise. Although avoidance may be possible if your fear is the result of being confronted by a particular object or animal, other phobic situations may not be so easy to evade. When your phobic reaction disrupts your enjoyment of every day life and causes distress, it’s time to seek therapeutic help with self-help strategies to deal with the problem. Hypnotherapy at the Conway Practice in Brighton provides support to conquer irrational fears and to recognise the source of the phobia.*
While the mind is relaxed during hypnosis it is more open to positive suggestion while still remaining in complete control. The experience is often likened to a day-dream where you are aware of your surroundings, while in this state of altered consciousness your mind is able to find relief from any anxious or negative thoughts.*
As with there being many different phobias, there are also innumerable reasons for the phobic reaction and by identifying the origin during hypnotherapy sessions with Jonathan Conway, you will begin to feel more confident and in control.* The fight or flight response experienced when fear is triggered is a physical response to a situation which is considered dangerous or threatening. Depending on your particular phobia, this could include speech anxiety with a fear of public speaking; finding social situations unbearably stressful; a travel phobia; a fear of heights or confined spaces. Although these fears may be irrational, they are none the less self-limiting and overwhelming.
Jonathan will guide you in tracing the source of your phobia, which may well have remained buried deeply in your subconscious for a number of years, perhaps as far back as childhood or adolescence. Early conditioning by parents or other environmental influences can result in a phobic reaction being passed on without any conscious awareness. Sessions in hypnotherapy at the Conway Practice in Brighton enable a re-coding of the information, ensuring the automatic responses are no longer triggered in the same way.*

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*
Have 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.*

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