I thought hypnotism was hocus pocus. Not any more. On a recent flight I was gripping the seat arms for dear life, cursing every noise and movement the plane made and sweating hideously.

Flights are usually sheer panic throughout. Up steps John with an offer of help, and skeptically I agree. He starts up and I allow my thoughts to be directed by John.

I am fully aware of whats going on but somehow he strips away the worries and anxiety and talks to a logical part of my brain that is clouded by these fears. Long story short – it was as though he flipped a switch and I was sat there without a care in the world. From then on turbulence and landing were a doddle. I cant thank him enough.

Will certainly be back again to sort out any other fears.
