If you feel a little uneasy at the prospect of flying away for your holidays, or a little anxious when the boss sends you on a business trip that sees you take to the skies, then Solution Focused Hypnotherapy may be able to help you.

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

Julie Showering, a fully insured and qualified Solution Focused Hypnotherapy practitioner based in Chipping Sodbury, says: “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 while they are on board.

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

Julie Showering uses specific hypnotherapy techniques that involve helping people overcome specific phobic responses – these can range from a fear of flying 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.”

Julie trained at The Clifton Practice to gain her Hypnotherapy Practitioner’s Diploma (HPD) – which is currently considered, by many, to be the “gold standard” in the hypnotherapy industry.

They are also part of the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH), which requires members to adhere to a high standard of professional conduct and on-going supervision alongside attendance at regular training events throughout the year.

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