hypnotherapy and fear of flying

in this paid review, let me talk a little about fear of flying. i wrote about it last year, when i told you a about my first flight after having experienced a rather terrifying attack of fear of flying in a flight a few years earlier. there were six elements that helped me overcome that dreadful memory: journaling, talking about it, resolving to fly again, having a good flight companion, and two ways of being in the moment.

one thing i did not try was hypnotherapy or NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) to help with my fear of flying. j.p. richards, a hypnotherapist using NLP, addresses the phobic flyer, the fearful flyer and the first time flyer, which i think is an interesting idea. at some point in my life, my delight in flying had slowly turned into being fearful of flying and i was well on my way to a full-out phobia.

here is a bit more information about hypnotherapy and NLP. if this approach sounds interesting to you and if you’re battling with flight anxiety, why don’t you check out j.p. richards’ site. the program costs only $49, so at minimum, you get to learn something about hypnotherapy, and it might just help you with your problem.  also, if you’re a blogger and interested in writing about the topic, you may be able to try the program for free.

    Hey Mori,

    Thank you for the great review.

    Interesting how you choose to deal with your fear of flying: journaling, talking about it, resolving to fly again, having a good flight companion, and two ways of being in the moment

    I think those are great principles to deal with any fear.

    I also like how you are acutely aware you did not have a phobia.

    If any of your readers have a fear of flying phobia (that is, Pteromerhanophobia, Aerophobia, Aviatophobia, or Aviophobia), I’d be happy to answer any of their questions how they can cure their fear of flying in just 18 minutes.

    I’ve considered hypnotherapy for a variety of reasons, including nail biting and overreating. You’ve given me a little push to check it out.

    Great Bradly.

    You could definitely get positive results from working with a Hypnotherapist on overeating and nail biting.

    Are you going to see a Hypnotherapist live?

    Because if not live, I highly recommend my colleague Wendi Friesen and her audio programs (I listened to them myself).

    same here, @wandering coyote – when i was over at your blog (had come from catatonic kid, don’t know if i mentioned that) i thought, hey, i’ve been there before.

    neat how this vast world of blogging is actually a bit of a small world, huh?

    are you in BC, then? (or do i know that already and have forgotten … ?)

    Mori (And JP),

    Just wanted to say thanks! It’s always great to see people actually getting in and working with their fears and although I hadnt considered journalling previously, its added to my knowledge banks.

    JP, I’m extra impressed to find a fellow hypnotherapist (with nlp background) working with people via the internet. Many therapists have minimal understanding of the www, let alone how to use it to educate people about hypnotherapy. I use my own site as a launch point to highlight the benefits of hypnosis and as a platform to dispel ALOT of the misconceptions tied to hypnosis.

    Keep up the great work!
