Overcoming Fear of Flying as a Parent

As a parent, there's an innate shift that occurs within us, a transformation that sharpens our focus on safety and protection. The moment we hold our baby in our arms, our world changes. We become guardians of this precious new life, and with that responsibility often comes heightened caution and risk aversion. It's a natural response, an instinct to shield our children from harm and ensure their well-being at all costs. 

How does this affect flying?

This intensified sense of protection can sometimes lead us to develop fears we hadn't previously considered. For many, one of these fears is flying. The idea of being thousands of feet above the ground, in a metal tube, can be daunting. What if something goes wrong? What if we're not there to protect our little ones? 

Yet, this fear of flying can hold us back from experiencing the wider world, a world that is rich with opportunities for growth, learning, and bonding with our children. Imagine the vibrant cultures, the breathtaking landscapes, the historical wonders that await you and your family. Each flight is a gateway to new adventures, creating cherished memories and broadening horizons for both you and your children.

How do you overcome fear of flying as a parent?

Understanding this fear is the first step towards overcoming it. Often, the mind can amplify the risks associated with flying, fuelled by a primal instinct to avoid danger. However, it's important to recognise that flying is statistically one of the safest modes of transport. The real challenge lies not in the act of flying itself, but in your perception of it.

This is where I can help.

How can a hypnotherapist help with fear of flying?

As a hypnotherapist, I work with parents just like you to unravel the threads of fear and anxiety that can become entangled in our thoughts. Through a personalised session or sessions, we can explore the root causes of your fear of flying, addressing the subconscious triggers and transforming your mindset.

Imagine boarding a plane with a sense of calm confidence, knowing you have the tools to manage your fear. Picture yourself exploring new destinations with your family, embracing the adventures that once seemed out of reach. Hypnotherapy can provide you with the clarity and empowerment you need to take to the skies with confidence.
