Easter is a time when many of us dream for that summer holiday and jetting off somewhere hot and sunny – but for a significant number of people the idea of getting onto a plane can make them feel a little nervous.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy uses tried and tested techniques to help someone overcome their “fear response” which can make so many people feel tense and uneasy as they approach an airport or as they board a plane.

“For some people then the idea of flying can make them uncomfortable,” says Gary Burge, a Solution Focused Hypnotherapy practitioner based in Plymouth, Devon. “Part of our training is to work with a client, normally over a period of four sessions, to help them be able to approach the idea of flying in a calm, confident and relaxed manner.”

Gary provides a free initial consultation during which they explain why we can sometimes feel fearful about specific situations, such as flying, before explaining how the process of hypnotherapy can help the client overcome their difficulties.

Further sessions use hypnosis to ease the mind into a relaxed and calm state before the therapist works with the client to help them overcome their fear and aid them in being able to look forward to the flight itself.

“We have found that people often come to us feeling nervous about the idea of flying but, following the sessions, can go off on holiday and find that they can actually relax and enjoy the experience of  being on a plane!”

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help in other areas of life, from improving confidence to reducing stress, aiding sleep and weight management.

By working with a fully trained and qualified Solution Focused Hypnotherapy practitioner then it is possible to achieve a crucial change in thinking that can make a real difference when it comes down to improving aspects of your life.

Gary Burge is a member of the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy which insists on the highest standards of practice among its members who are qualified, insured and attend regular sessions designed to provide them with the latest research in psychology, psychotherapy and hypnotherapy.
