Hypnotist and TV presenter Dominic Knight has conducted the world’s biggest hypnosis session aimed at helping people with a chronic fear of flying.
More than 73 Britons were cured as a result of the “Heathrow Hypnosis” session, in which Mr Knight used calming music, a swirl board and other hypnosis elements to put the participants in a trance.
He then gave them a special speech which meant they knew they would have a positive experience on their next flight once they woke up from their trance.
Dominic Knight commented, “People’s fear of flying can be a result of a previous bad experience or a fear of the unknown, either way it is shocking to hear that the phobia is affecting so many people’s lives, if one family member has the phobia it can restrict the whole family from travel”
“Hypnosis coupled with the 14 Second method is a powerful and effective way to overcome the anxiety and the fear of flying in record time. It was great to be able to do it on such a large scale.”
The Heathrow Hypnosis session was conducted to mark the opening of the new Premier Inn at the airport’s Terminal 5, in the hope that guests staying at the hotel before boarding a plane will experience no more sleepless nights.
