What is a fear of flying (phobia)?

The job of the brain is to ensure our survival. Like being scared of flying, all phobias develop when the brain decides that something in your environment could be dangerous. So it tries to protect you from doing things that it thinks could harm you.

When it decides that you are about to put yourself into a potentially life-threatening situation, it will prepare you for flight, fight or freeze. That is to run away from the thing that might harm you, to prepare to fight it, or to freeze and hope that the danger passes. Signs of this response are a racing heartbeat, hot or cold sweats, digestive discomfort, and shortness of breath, among other things.

Ultimately the brain hopes that the discomfort it produces will be significantly strong enough for you to avoid the danger altogether.

If you are scared of flying, then at some point your brain has picked up the message that flying is dangerous – even though flying is still statistically the safest form of transport!

“The flights went so well and I can’t believe how at ease I felt. The flight going out was also one of the most turbulent flights I’ve been on but I felt very calm. I didn’t have the feeling of fear or panic that I had previously. I am amazed at how well I coped. I actually found myself enjoying the flight back (did I just say that?!) and I was sad the trip was over! Thank you again for all of your help, this has really been a life changer for me.”

How do you help fear of flying phobias?

Our initial appointment takes place by telephone. On the call we will explore the history of your fear of flying, so that I can understand all the information that is unique to you and your problem. All my work is completely tailored to you, with no one-size-fits-all scripts or sessions.

Following this initial call, I’ll invite you to attend a series of flying phobia sessions at my practice in Lexden, Colchester. In these sessions I will use a variety of therapeutic techniques to quickly and safely reduce your fear response to flying.

These techniques may include traditional hypnosis (hypnotherapy), neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), eye movement therapy (EMDR/EMI is used by the British Army to treat trauma and heightened emotional responses), emotional freedom technique (also known as tapping) and a variety of other therapeutic modalities.

During the course of our work together, I will create a bespoke hypnosis recording based on the results that you wish to achieve.

Our last session should be held as close to your date of flying as possible, if you already have a trip booked.

If you would like to discuss how hypnotherapy for flying phobia in Colchester, Essex could help you, please don’t hesitate to get in touch for a no-obligation chat.

About Fear of Flying specialist Victoria Ward

Hi! I’m Victoria. 

I am a former Harley Street Cognitive Hypnotherapist working in Colchester, Essex.

I now use hypnosis and other psychological therapies to help my clients to overcome being scared of flying.

I love working with fear of flying clients. I used to have a severe phobic reaction to flying, and now that I am completely free from it (I love flying!) it is one of my passions to help others be able to fly without fear.

I adore travelling, and love helping people to expand their horizons and grow out of their comfort zones so that you can explore this wonderful world that we live on.

My clients have gone on to take promotions that involve international travel and a £15,000 pay rise, get married on a beach in the Seychelles, visit elderly relatives in Italy, swim with dolphins in the Caribbean and even relocate across the globe with their dogs to Australia. All things that they once thought were impossible.

Flying Phobia Testimonials

“Thank you, Victoria! I honestly didn’t believe anything would help me get on a plane, but what you did with me worked! My boyfriend and I flew to Iceland last weekend for my birthday, and he proposed to me. I felt absolutely fine on both flights. I kept trying to find that old horrible feeling I’m used to, but it just wasn’t there anymore. Now we’re thinking about Bali for our honeymoon!”

PMS, LondonWriter

I just want to tell you how those sessions and your recordings have transformed my thought processes and got me back to living a great life with my family. I have now flown to several countries over the last two years and only had two teeny blips! I am so thankful I plucked up the courage to come and see you and how grateful I am for your amazing work!

LC, ColchesterExec

“I came to Victoria with a pathological fear of flying after a plane I was on depressurised mid-flight. I booked three sessions with Victoria and fully admit I was skeptical. But to try to sum up what happened in those three sessions here wouldn’t do the experience justice. I learnt more about myself than I thought possible, and came to understand that I didn’t have to be a slave to my fears. With Victoria’s help I have seen the whole world open up to me again. Pretty amazing, really.”

MC, Colchester

“Hi Victoria. I’m just letting you know how grateful I am for your help. I have just landed home from a trip to Ireland and I cannot believe how amazing it felt to be happy to fly! I honestly cannot remember the last time I felt like this. I am now planning my big Summer holiday! Once again, many thanks.”

LC, London

“I have to say my flight was for the most part ENJOYABLE!!! I had a couple of moments during the flight but was able to take control of the situation. I got through a few movies and some other TV. Then the true test was the tiny 31 minute flight from Chicago to Indi which was actually just like getting on a bus! Thank you so much for your help with this. Now i can move forward and flying will become easier every time i venture out”

“The flights went so well and I can’t believe how at ease I felt. The flight going out was also one of the most turbulent flights I’ve been on but I felt very calm. I didn’t have the feeling of fear or panic that I had previously, it was more acknowledging that the turbulence was uncomfortable and annoying. Thank you so much for all your help Victoria, I am amazed at how well I coped with the flights and my mum saw a huge difference in me too. I actually found myself enjoying the flight back (did I just say that?!) and I was sad the trip was over! Thank you again for all of your help, this has really been a life changer for me.”
