Fear of Driving Hypnosis
There is no medical term to describe the fear of driving, but the symptoms and struggles exist for many people, even if you have already obtained your driving licence.
The causes of most driving phobias can lie in the aftermath of a trauma involving a car, for example an accident, the failure of braking systems, or even being told some bad news whilst in a car.
Driving can be an unpredictable experience because it involves other drivers on the roads around you; however you must assume that those drivers have all revised the Highway Code to keep in practice with safe usage of a car. They studied and passed the exact same test and procedures as you and understand the dangers and risks of performing outside of those proposed guidelines.
Also, for decades now protection is installed inside all road vehicles to prevent harm to drivers and passengers, such as seat belts, airbags, anti-lock brakes and so on. As long as you are alert and aware of your surroundings when inside a car and trust that you can complete your journey without any distractions then you will be safe.
However, this may do little to alleviate the fear in people who have a serious phobia of driving. They might be afraid to perform a certain manoeuvre, such as not turning right, or may plan entire routes around avoiding particular roundabouts or roads. More generally, some people constantly shake with nervousness behind the wheel, develop headaches or feel nauseous, making comfortable driving difficult.
A fear of driving may prevent you from attending social functions, make you late for work, or cause you to miss important meetings or appointments. It can create unnecessary detours, making you waste unnecessary time as you plan your next journey at length, which in itself may make you nervous to travel. A driving phobia instigates stress and creates mental pressure that also affects your ability to drive safely.
Hypnotherapy works by the changing the subconscious associations which cause the inconvenient and difficult phobia of driving. By addressing the psychological cause of your fear the Advanced Hypnosis London hypnotherapists help you to confidently and successfully overcome your fear of driving, giving you the mental tools to help you to form new, positive attitudes. Once your negative associations with driving have been replaced with a more positive understanding, you will be able to resume a happier life without the anxiety or panic previously caused by car travel.
