Driving can be a daunting task for some people. It’s not just the physical challenge of driving, but also the mental side of it. Fear of driving is one of the most common phobias out there.
What is Fear of Driving?
Fear of driving is a fear of being in a car or truck on the road. It can be caused by many factors, including personal experiences, cultural references, and myths. For some people, it can be an overwhelming fear that can make driving too dangerous to try. Like many of our fears they are so often irrational fears, and if left unchecked or ignored, become a phobia. This takes the irrational fear and takes it to the next level, a phobia, a higher level of fear. This then drives (no pun intended) down our confidence.
Can Hypnosis Help You Overcome Driving Fears?
Hypnosis has been shown to be an effective treatment for a variety of psychological issues, including phobias. In one study, hypnotherapy was found to be as effective as medication in treating driving fears, and the good news is no side effects as some medication can induce. Participants who received hypnotherapy were less likely to report fear or anxiety symptoms six months after the treatment than those who received medication.
How Does Hypnosis Work?

The clinical hypnotherapist will use gentle spoken commands and suggestions to help you change your thoughts about driving.
