IF YOU’RE AFRAID TO FLY and you’re reading this then chances are you already know you’re missing out on some of life’s most enjoyable things – things that other people take for granted: travel and holidays, visiting family and friends and even career opportunities, to name a few.
What you probably don’t know is the problem can get worse if left untreated. The stress and anxiety can cross-associate to other areas of a person’s life, at which point they eventually seek support when they reach crisis point.
Thankfully, most people seek treatment before this happens and the good news is that success in overcoming fear of flying is almost inevitable for most people in the hands of an experienced therapist.*
Welcome to the PHOBIAMAN Clinic
I’m Alex, veteran member of Paul Mckenna’s Training Team and Treatment Director here at The PHOBIAMAN Clinic. I am a clinical specialist in the treatment of fear of flying and fear of heights with hypnosis and NLP, and over the last 13 years I have put together a team of some of the best phobia hypnotherapists anywhere.
Together, we have developed a unique programme of hypnotherapy for fear of flying. It’s unique because it’s been designed to remove the fear without you having to face it.*
We are professional, full-time therapists and we may be able to help you overcome your fear in just two or three sessions if you’ll only allow us to. That may sound like a wild claim right now, but when you stop to consider that we have already helped over 9000 others*, hopefully it begins to sound a bit more real.
Others measure their success by how many people take a flight at the end of the course or treatment. But thousands of people fly every day despite having a fear of flying because they have to. So this doesn’t mean the phobia has gone.
We only consider ourselves successful when your fear has gone completely and you have the confidence to do what someone without a phobia would normally be able to do without experiencing a fear reaction.*
And even with these higher benchmarks, our success rates are better* than the airline courses, as well as other clinics and therapists, because we specialise in phobias and we have a unique fear of flying hypnotherapy programme delivered by some of the best hypnotherapists anywhere.
It’s NOT About Logic
People who have never had a phobia say you are far more likely to die on the way to the airport than you are by flying. That’s true, but it doesn’t help, does it?
At the PHOBIAMAN Clinic, we know that this sort of logic won’t conquer the anxiety and stress of a flying phobia. And the fact that pilots and cabin crew sometimes develop a fear of flying is proof it has nothing to do with safety or logic or knowing how aeroplanes fly. It is also proof that there is nothing wrong with you if you do have a flying phobia.
Pilots are as human as the rest of us and sometimes develop anxieties and fear of flying even after thousands of perfect flights. And when they do they come to The PHOBIAMAN Clinic for treatment, and there is no better recommendation than that.*
Here are just some of the reasons why people come to The PHOBIAMAN Clinic to overcome fear of flying:
What We Never Do…
1. No Long Physics Lectures
We all know logically that flying is safe. But the fear has nothing to do with flight safety or logic or understanding because it comes from a completely different part of the brain.
So we don’t force you to sit among hundreds of other fearful fliers for a whole day, getting more and more nervous while you listen to a pilot talking about aircraft and aviation safety statistics, how a commercial passenger jet is the safest form of transport, and
how aeroplanes fly.
The reason we don’t do this is because it doesn’t work. And we think asking a pilot to cure a fear of flying is as silly as asking a therapist to fly an aeroplane, (and the pilots we’ve spoken to agree with us). Overcoming fear of flying is about the brain, not the plane.
2. No “Facing Your Fear to Beat the Fear”
If you’ve ever been on an airline fear of flying course you’ll know that most of the people on the flight at the end are still terrified, some people are close to a panic attack. They haven’t overcome their fear of flying at all, even after a whole day (sometimes two days!) of learning about flying.
They are “Facing their Fears” in order to conquer them. Some of them are in tears they are so frightened. You can see it in the promotional videos on the airline websites.
These brave people have our full respect but this is the old psychological model of how to overcome fear – “Feel the fear and do it anyway”. It’s called exposure therapy, or systematic desensitization, and it isn’t very nice.
There is no face your fear to beat the fear aspect to our treatment. We invest the time needed with you and we only use the very best positive psychological techniques to remove your fear without you having to face it.*
What Makes Us Different?
3. We are Phobia Treatment Specialists
It’s important to make sure you are putting your trust in a specialist phobia clinic for your phobia treatment. Luckily, here at The PHOBIAMAN Clinic we specialise in treating phobias, so we understand what it’s like to have a real fear.
And we know that fear of flying is often underpinned by other fears like claustrophobia or fear of heights. This means a fear of flying won’t always respond to the out-of-the-box phobia methods and relaxation techniques that non-specialist clinics rely on.
If you want to check if a clinic or therapist GENUINELY specialises in phobia treatment, just have a quick look at their websites. If they offer treatments to stop smoking or weight loss or coaching or anything else then they do NOT specialise in phobias. And if they don’t specialise they are less likely to have the experience or expertise necessary to treat your phobia.
4. World Class NLP and Hypnosis
Not only are we phobia specialists, we are also world-class experts in Eriksonian Hypnotherapy and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP). We don’t say this lightly, either.
As veteran members of Paul Mckenna’s training team, we help Paul and Dr Richard Bandler (the man who thought it all up) to deliver the largest NLP trainings in the world. Some of us have spent more than 10 years helping to deliver these trainings to tens of thousands of other hypnotherapists. That’s over 80 seminars, working alongside Paul Mckenna and Richard Bandler. There is no team with more experience anywhere, and all this means we deliver the most powerful and thorough fear of flying hypnosis treatment programme anywhere.
5. You’re in Control
Our whole programme is designed to collapse your fear at a neurological level and ONLY THEN do you get to test the new you, when you say you’re ready. You are in control throughout.*
6. We Are the First Choice of Pilots and Cabin Crew
When livelihoods and careers depend upon results, professional pilots and cabin crew come to us.
They turn to The PHOBIAMAN Clinic because they know we are as thorough about looking after our clients and collapsing phobias as they are about flying aircraft and taking care of their passengers. We take it extremely seriously.*
7. We Know More About How to Treat Flying Phobias Than Anyone Else
Having worked with over 9000 people with phobias of all kinds, we understand better than anyone ALL the different components that can make up a flying phobia: (Take-off, Landing, Fear of Heights, Falling out of the Sky, Loss of Control, Structural Integrity of the Aeroplane, Engine Failure, Crew Competence, Weather Conditions, Turbulence, Terrorism, Claustrophobia, Panic Attacks, Mental Images, etc.). You name it, we’ve treated it, and we know how to collapse each one thoroughly.*
8. Our Methods Work Where Others Fail
“I’ve tried everything and you’re my last hope!” – We used to hear that a lot.
We don’t hear it so much now, thankfully, because people come straight to us. But if you have tried other hypnotherapists or airline industry courses, don’t worry. You deserve a fear-free life and we’re confident we can help.*
