I did it and can’t believe it. I just settled myself and relaxed. When I first went to you there was no way I was going on a plane. But Alan I DID IT and all thanks to you! D…..


Fear of Flying –  Overcome it with Alan Gilchrist Hypnosis

Over the years I have helped many thousands of people overcome their fear of flying using Fast Track Hypnosis / Hypnotherapy.

This flying phobia may have occurred from concerns about the weather, inappropriate behaviour from other passengers, running out of fuel, turbulence, take offs, flying over water, claustrophobia, crowds, losing control (panic attacks), terrorists, hijackings to name but a few. I have even had people come to me who had a fear that they couldn’t go to the toilet on a plane! News coverage, either in print or on the television, can also cause the general public to become very wary of flying and are reluctant to put their safety into the hands of a pilot.

I have seen people cancel their honeymoon plans , refuse promotion at work, turn down the opportunity of a “free holiday” or family visits simply because they will not board an aircraft. Unfortunately, for most people, air travel has become a necessary part of the travel experience these days, and more and more people are now seeking help to overcome their fear of flying.

The fear of flying is called aviophobia or aerophobia and is one of the most common fears, and yet according to insurance brokers ‘flying is 25 times safer than driving a car’. With over 100,000 international flights taking off and landing each day people still have the fear of being out of control as a passenger on a plane.

It has been calculated that over a million passengers are in the air at any one time !

“Air travel is the safest mode of mass transportation. According to Dr. Arnold Barnett of MIT, based on the air accident rate over the last few years, you would have to fly on average once a day every day for 22,000 years before you would encounter a commercial aviation incident.”
Since I first wrote the above statistics over 6 years ago it has now changed to once a day every day for 123,000 years. That’s how much aircraft reliability has improved in such a short space of time !

So the TRUE aviation danger is your drive to the local airport.
According to statistics, you are much more at risk on that drive than on your flight!

Many clients often describe it to me as ‘I just don’t want to make a fool out of myself in front of other people, either on a plane or at the airport’. Consequently they categorise themselves as ‘the white knuckle brigade’, just sitting there, hands clenched to the sides of the seat, staring straight ahead and not talking, but inwardly praying.

It’s not surprising really because, whenever the airline passenger decides to go on a journey / holiday, from the time he or she books the flight for their holidays, etc, a lot of subliminal factors start to emerge.

These are the prime examples:-

Whenever the person books their flight they are asked to take out insurance – just in case!

On arrival to the airport the first building they enter is the TERMINAL! Which is usually littered with advertisements for insurance – just in case!

Then they enter the DEPARTURE lounge and await their FINAL CALL for their FINAL DESTINATION.

Upon entering the aircraft they are greeted by the smiling stewardesses who show them to their seats. They look down and there are the safety instructions which they are advised to read – just in case!

The stewardesses walk down the aisles and check that all the seat belts are fastened and the seats are in the upright position for take off – just in case!

As the aircraft is prepared for take off the smiling stewardesses then instruct the passengers in all the safety procedures ..complete with life jackets and the brace position – just in case!

Does all this sound familiar?

Little wonder people can easily become phobic about flying even before the plane takes off – and yet these procedures are necessary!

If you have a phobia of flying then Fast Track Hypnosis is ideal in helping you to overcome the fear by implanting into your subconscious mind positive suggestions, and by teaching you to relax. Not only when on the aircraft, but also on the run up to your flight, since your quality of life can be affected by the constant worry about the eventual journey (as featured in Northern Ireland’s Business Eye magazine).

You are taught, via Fast Track Hypnosis and the CDs supplied, how to relax and to transfer this state of relaxation to whenever and wherever you need it – in the departure lounge, on the plane, during your flight etc.

You are also taught how to use auto-hypnosis as an aid to your ongoing results as you progress.

It is impossible to be totally accurate how many sessions it takes as each person is an individual.
However normally only 4 Fast Track sessions are required (as opposed to conventional Hypnotherapy which can take up to 15 sessions).

Fees £85 or €85.00 per session.

Fear of Flying Review.

To Alan,
Thank you so much for helping me overcome my fear of flying.
It’s been a while since I had my appointments with you and in that time I have flew to Cardiff and back.
I was a bit nervous when I got to the airport but once I was on the plane I felt a lot more relaxed.
Once the plane had taken off I was completely OK and had no worries!!
Thanks to you I am going on holiday to Venice in the summer and I’m super excited!
I still use the top of the triangle exercise that you taught me and it helps me a lot when I am ever nervous for anything.
Thanks so much again for everything!
Stephanie. P (aged 12)
