It’s the time of the year where many people will be looking forward to getting on a plane and getting away from it all for that all important summer break away in the sun. But, for some, the thought of flying can make them feel a little uneasy.

So, if you have a minor phobia about taking to the skies then perhaps Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help you feel calmer, more confident and relaxed about that next all-important flight

Using safe techniques, hypnotherapy can help you to overcome that minor phobia or fear that may have been holding you back for so long.

Duncan Little is a fully insured and qualified Solution Focused Hypnotherapy practitioner, based with the award-winning team at The Observatory Practice in The Crescent, Plymouth.

“We work with clients who may dislike aspects of flying that can result in them feeling a bit nervous before they get onto a plane or whilst they are on board,” says Duncan.

“Over a period of normally three to four hypnotherapy sessions then we can help someone feel more confident about flying – with the sole aim of aiding them to board a plane feeling in a more calm and relaxed place.”

Duncan uses specific hypnotherapy techniques which involve helping people overcome specific phobic responses – which can range from flying through to a fear of spiders or heights.

“To be able to help someone gain confidence in an area of their life is a fantastic feeling and it is great that clients can themselves go on to gain confidence as an air passenger or in other areas of their life – thanks to Solution Focused Hypnotherapy together with their desire for positive change.”

Duncan trained with the team from Bristol’s prestigious Clifton Practice to gain their Hypnotherapy Practitioner’s Diploma (HPD) – which is currently considered, by many, to be the “gold standard” in the hypnotherapy industry.

Duncan is also part of the National Board for Modern Psychotherapy (NBMP) that requires members to adhere to a high standard of professional conduct and on-going supervision alongside attendance to regular training events throughout the year.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can also be used to help ease stress, improve confidence, aid in weight management and can help people to quit smoking
