Does your child have a fear of flying? Resolved! Counselling for Children could help them to be free of it, once and for all.

The fear of flying is a staple for me in those months of late Spring to early Summer. People from around Oxford and Reading flock to have me help them with their phobias,, under pressure to allow their families their holidays in the sun.

Sometimes these people have taught their children how to be afraid of flying too. Children look to their parents in order to know whether or not a situation is safe. If a parent is afraid of air-travel then it’s quite likely that their child will become afraid of flying too.

If you live in or around Oxford or Reading then help is at hand. I could help your child or teenager to be free of the fear of flying. You could book the whole family on a foreign holiday, free of the fear that your child will find it a traumatic experience. Resolved! Counselling for children, using a combination of psychotherapy, mindfulness and hypnotherapy, could help to make it happen!

I also offer counselling and psychotherapy for the fear of flying online, using vsee, whatsapp, zoom. Please get in touch for details.

It’s a staple of my hypnotherapy work with adults. 

anxiety and hypnotherapyThe fear of air travel pays a great many of my bills through the Spring and Summer months. Adults and children, keen to enjoy their holidays without burdening their families with their fear, come to see me in order to be free of whatever it is which bothers them about a flight. 

Sometimes it’s a formerly traumatic experience with turbulence which caused them to develop their phobia. Sometimes it’s seeing a parent or other loved one go through the terror of flying which convinced them that flying is something to fear. 

Others can be terrified of situations in which they’re not in control. Such people can also be afraid of travelling by train, by bus or as passengers in a car. The fear of flying can be a simple thing or it can, at other times, be merely one of a complex of fears and anxieties.

I don’t deal with superficial problems. I will work to get to the bottom of your child’s fear and work to ensure that it’s dealt with fully and thoroughly.

Hypnotherapy has helped plenty of people to fly in confidence. You could be one of them

I use a variety of different approaches in order to help children and teenagers with their fear of flying. If your child is willing to engage with their phobia then they have every chance of success.

Your son or daughter has unwittingly used their imagination to create the fear of flying. I am highly trained in helping people to use their imagination in order to master their fear and to let it go.  Rather than being at the mercy of an imagination which focuses their attention upon the increasingly unlikely prospect of a plane going down in flames, they can learn to use their mind n order to realise that air travel is pretty much the safest mode of transport on offer in the modern age. 

There are dozens of people in the area of Reading and Oxford who were once afraid of flying but who have now learned to be free of their fear. I look forward to helping your child or teenager to achieve the same goal.

If you’d like to go on holiday without your child or teenager having a meltdown at the mere thought of flying, give me a call. I’ll be glad to help you. You could call me on 07786 123736 / 01865 600970 / 01183 280284, email me at or use the contact form in the footer of this page.
