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.
This flying phobia may have occurred from concerns about the weather, inappropriate behaviour from other passengers.
Other concerns would be running out of fuel, turbulence, take-offs, flying over water, claustrophobia, crowds, losing control (panic attacks), terrorists, hijackings to name but a few.
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.
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. I
Some people came to me who had a fear they couldn’t go to the toilet on a plane!. I even had a pilot for that one!
Unfortunately, for most people, air travel has become a necessary part of the travel experience these days.
More people are now seeking help to overcome their fear of flying than ever before.
Fear of flying is called aviophobia or aerophobia and is one of the most common fears.
Yet according to insurance brokers ‘being in a plane 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 10 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!
Clients describe it 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’.
They just sitting there, hands clenched to the sides of the seat, staring straight ahead and not talking, but inwardly praying.
It’s not surprising because when 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:-
When the person books their flight they are asked to take out insurance – just in case!
On arrival at the airport, the first building they enter is the TERMINAL!.
Which is usually littered with advertisements for insurance – just in case!
Next hey 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 takeoff the smiling stewardesses then instruct the passengers in all the safety procedures.
To complete it they demonstrate the 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!
Fear OF Flying – Alan Gilchrist put to the test!
On one occasion a TV program featured me helping a client overcome the fear of flying.
The cameraman who was in the studio filming it came along to get over his flying phobia as well!
This is the TV Program
If you have a Phobia of Flying.
Fast Track Hypnosis is ideal in helping you to overcome the fear of flying.
This is achieved by implanting into your subconscious mind positive suggestions, and by teaching you to relax.
This occurs not only when on the aircraft, but also on the run-up to your flight.
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 or Downloads supplied, how to relax.
Consequently, to transfer this state of relaxation to whenever and wherever you need it – in the departure lounge, on the plane, during your flight etc.
Auto-hypnosis is also taught to you 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.
My first visit was 26 years ago to give up smoking. I smoked 30 a day and tried everything. One session with Alan and listening to the CD every night for 30 days I have never looked back. My second visit was to conquer my fear of flying. I can now get on a plane and have been on long haul flights. I would highly recommend Alan M.McG…..
I have been meaning to contact all week. I am delighted to tell you I successfully flew to England and back with little stress. The seat belt lights came on in both journeys due to some turbulence and I stayed calm. I did use my auto hypnosis successfully and I am so proud! Even the landing on the way home was very bumpy and I didn’t panic.
