The big question is “Can hypnosis cure phobias?”. When the hypnotist you are asking answers with a resounding “yes”, the next thought is usually along the lines of “yeah, right”. But you’d be amazed at the high success rate that hypnosis has with phobias. Top athletes regularly use hypnosis in all areas of their career. One of these areas that they may not be quite as public about is a fear of flying. After all, how can something as common place as flying be something to be afraid of? Surely almost every plane that takes off lands again safely? Yet fear of flying is a biggie. Hypnosis to the rescue! By getting to the core of the fear, hypnosis can turn round the fear of flying and let you face an airport without turning into a quivering wreck. The same goes for any other fear or phobia you’ve got. For instance, if you’ve been afraid of heights since childhood, you can listen to a hypnosis MP3 and watch the fear melt away. This won’t mean that you will lose the natural fear that kicks in when you are about to do something stupid from a height. But it will mean that you can climb a tower or tall building and admire the view, without your knuckles turning white while they are gripping the nearest safe object. Public speaking is another very common fear. Truth be known, most of the audience probably don’t care what you are saying in your presentation. They’re just glad that it’s you who drew the short straw rather than them. You can use hypnosis to boost your confidence in public speaking so that you don’t break out into a cold sweat the next time you are asked to speak in public.
