Are you afraid to fly? Dare yourself to overcome it!


“I was from 5:45 am, tossing and turning in bed, thinking  that within three hours I’ll be on a plane! The mere thought that I have to ride in that can, where once the doors are closed¡ There would no way of getting out of there.  I get nauseous and a huge tingling all over his body. I’m dying on the inside ……. “

As from this story, there are many people who come to my office to be treated for the panic they feel. The thought to be riding on an airplane. People who only have to think about this, gives them real strong episodes of anxiety, stress and physical pain that prevents them from doing many things, like enjoy unique and unforgettable places where only the plane can take them now.  But, are these emotions and feelings are incurable? No, because there are many non-pharmacological treatments that can cure such fears, and these are called therapies. Therapies are used to determine where the “zero event” that triggers that fear of flying and then use these therapies to help heal our brain and our emotions, strengthening and curing them amid fears we have.  An example: let’s assume that when you were very small, your parents were separated and went to live in different states. To meet with the visitation rights, you rode on a plane alone, with the supervision of a stewardess of course, but equally alone. Among those trips, one of the passengers is not well and agitated, you like any little girl, you get scared, and you find that you have no one you can trust, or embrace or protect, an event that you later block out and forget, but that over the years, with the simple fact that they tell you to hop on a plane, you feel a trigger within you that brings an indescribable fear you body breaks down and makes you feel a lot of anxiety just thinking about flying. Like this, there are many situations that can trigger certain types of fears and can only be treated with therapies. Therapies that allow you to transmit to the brain in this case, that a ride on an airplane does not mean that something bad is going to happen. But is only a way to travel from one place to another, a destination that will bring new experiences in our book of life. So, go to overcome fears and turn them into valuable experiences!

Social Anxiety / Professional Confidence - Public Speaking / Fear of Flying

"I'm now able to perform tasks that I thought were impossible a month ago"

I've suffered from constant anxiety for as long as I can remember, particularly from social anxiety and fear of public speaking, to the point that my office jobs were no longer manageable and I was very close to fall deeply into depression. I had very little self-confidence, despite having progressed in my career and achieved many of my professional and personal goals. However, I got to a point in which I wasn't able to progress any further due to my the constant fear of being evaluated and criticised by others, which paralysed me and stopped me from speaking up and being more visible. My day to day prior to the sessions was absolutely controlled by my anxiety and lack of confidence due to past experiences, mainly during my childhood. Having done a number of therapies before (eMDR, CBT) I was sceptical at first, but I wanted to give hypnotherapy and the BAGC6 a go. After around 13 sessions I can say that I'm in a much better place than when I started. My constant anxiety has hugely decreased, and I'm now able to perform tasks that I thought were impossible a month ago, like giving a speech in front of my colleagues without having a panic attack or simply socialising with new people at a party. My perspective on things is now different and I've gained new confidence which allows me to speak and interact with others without fear. Maria has been great in understanding my issues and creating a very tailored treatment (hypnosis, eMDR, etc) to tackle these. She's always been very determined and a firm believer in a full recovery which has been very helpful, particularly in moments when I wanted to give up. She's also giving me tools and techniques that I can use to manage emotions and to stay focused (like auto-hypnosis) and I'm using these almost on a daily basis to continue building on my confidence and resilience. As per the fear of flying, this is something that I still need to test, but I'm confident that I will have also overcome it in the same way that I've beaten my anxiety disorder. I can only be grateful to Maria for all her help and for believing in me since day 1, and totally recommend her treatment!

Thanks so much!
