Picture feeling calm, safe, and confident while boarding a plane and heading towards to your destination, without feeling the need to use drugs or alcohol to calm your nerves or alleviate your fears.
You may ask on more than one occasion –
• Why do I have so many bad thoughts about flying?
• Why can’t I simply go where I want, instead of only being able to travel to places within driving distance?
• I tell myself not to be afraid of flying, so why am I still afraid?
If you have never flown before, you probably will experience at least a little apprehension when you board the plane for the first time. You might even experience fear as the plane taxis down the runway and at the pressure you feel as the plane takes off. Odds are you will be able to settle right in once the plane reaches its cruising altitude.
Taking a flight to any destination you desire
Being free from your paralyzing fears that have limited your choices
Feeling in control of your life, and calm and confident while traveling by plane

These symptoms may be so strong that flying is simply not an option. You probably realized long ago that you are limited to where you are able to travel. In fact, it probably doesn’t matter just how badly you would like to travel to some foreign destination, your fear stops you.

What causes a fear of flying?
Many people find flying scary and uncomfortable. However, the Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA) notes that almost 20 percent of the population has a fear of flying so severe that it affects their work and life satisfaction. A fear of flying can mean declining great job opportunities that may require air travel. It can mean a lifetime of vacations not taken and holidays not spent with family because of a fear of flying.
The fear of flying often starts with a trigger. These triggers are memories, images, or sensations that a person becomes sensitive toward. For example, a person might feel the air pressure change in their ears upon take-off, the pressure triggers fear, and a cycle starts.
The person starts to feel a sudden rush of anxiety, which causes them to begin to panic. The experience can remain with the person afterward. The person will then fear flying, mostly out of worry that they will become anxious again during a flight.
How can you overcome a fear of flying?
There are many treatments available to help manage the fear of flying, all with varying success. A few common treatments are cognitive-behavioral therapy, or CBT, and group therapy. Though these methods sometimes work, they may take months or years to see any positive results. Results are not immediate, and a lot relies on how involved a patient is in these types of therapy.
Medication is another treatment that can be used for the fear of flying. Medication, however, is more for managing the anxiety at the moment. It has little success as a long term intervention.

Why does hypnosis work for the fear of flying?
For a treatment to be successful, the root cause for the fear of flying has to be addressed, along with the anxiety it brings.

The revelation gained through hypnosis helps them to explore and make peace with those root causes. Hypnosis also provides the skills to move forward and cope with any future event appropriately.
What happens during a fear of flying hypnosis session?
Fear of flying hypnosis can either be performed in person, on FaceTime or Skype, or through audio downloads. Hypnosis places you in a relaxed state, allowing you to travel through your memories and explore events that may have led up to your fears. Through the use of relaxation techniques and suggestive power, the brain receives information on how to conquer fears.
When in a hypnotic state, you are asked various questions that have to do with your memories and fear of flying. These questions get you in touch with your emotions and experiences, letting you see situations from an objective point of view. By talking through your memories and emotions, you develop a deeper understanding of your fears and can cope with them. Although relaxed, you are always aware of what is occurring and can respond freely.
Is hypnosis for the fear of flying effective?
