Hypnotherapy for fear of flying
Fear of flying hypnosis – Does it work?
A phobia is an irrational, uncontrollable fear that than can be debilitating and disabling, manifesting in stress, anxiety and panic attacks. The part of our mind that causes anxiety and fear is our subconscious, whose job is to protect us and to keep us safe and healthy. It is natural and necessary to become fearful when in danger of experiencing physical or emotional harm, but a phobia is experienced in situations where there appears to be no real threat posed. Whilst sufferers of a flying phobia can be reassured that flying is one of the most safest forms of travel, it does not resolve the panic and anxiety for one simple reason: their subconscious has some mistaken information that causes it to believe otherwise.
So how can hypnosis help? Most hypnosis, EFT and NLP programmes aim to suppress your fear of flying without addressing the cause behind it. They use instructions and suggestions in an attempt to persuade or convince the subconscious to dispose of the fear. However, if there is a subconscious core belief that you are in danger or at risk of harm, then any improvements will likely be temporary. Sadly, any hypnosis technique that aims to ‘override’, ‘suppress’, or ‘manage’ your flying phobia can only bring about short-term change. Furthermore, if you force your mind to suppress what it believes is essential or necessary for your wellbeing, then it is likely to create some other reaction or symptom in its place. In our clinic, we have seen a number of cases where previously ‘suppressed’ phobias have manifested into nail biting, weight gain and even eczema.
So how can hypnotherapy help resolve my phobia of flying permanently and safely?
The only way to resolve a phobia is to find – and then correct – the cause
Lesserian™ curative hypnotherapy is a gentle, logical and effective method that works WITH the subconscious, not against it. We must first find out *WHY* your subconscious reacts in this way. Curative hypnotherapists ask the subconscious why it *needs* your phobia. Once that subconscious need has been identified, using logic we can help to re-examine the mistaken information that lies behind it. As long as the misinformation exists, so will your phobia of flying. But once your subconscious believes, rather than being told, that disposing of the fear is in your best interests, then it will actively enable you to do so FOR GOOD.
Lesserian™ curative hypnotherapy is distinguished from all other forms of hypnotherapy primarily by its use of logic. The therapist approaches each person without theories or preconceptions – except for one – that the answer to your phobia lies only within your own subconscious mind. With Lesserian™ curative hypnotherapy there is no need to suppress or manage your phobia. By helping to resolve and correct the cause, your fear, anticipation of fear and all related symptoms can automatically fade away, until eventually your phobia is nothing but a vague and distant memory.
With Lesserian™ curative hypnotherapy you will not be required to relive any traumatic or upsetting situation. All you will feel is beautifully relaxed. To learn more about the Lesserian™ Method, please click here.
Lesserian™ Curative Hypnotherapy Trademark
Over the years many practitioners have incorporated the word “Curative” when describing their treatment, despite providing more basic methods of hypnotherapy. Due to concern over the confusion that was being caused by this, the trademark “Lesserian™ Curative Hypnotherapy ” was registered to mark the difference. The name “Lesserian™” Curative Hypnotherapy is therefore protected by law and denotes the method of treatment that requires the understanding of how people create their problems, which is the necessary first step on the path to correcting the cause of, and resolving, a symptom / condition. Only hypnotherapists licensed as Lesserian™ are qualified to use this technique.
