What causes anxiety after car accidents?
You might think it’s obvious that having a car crash would cause you to be scared of driving.
It can be the crash but not always and it’s often those cases that mystify people as they just can’t think of what else it can be. It’s best to always keep an open mind and not jump to any conclusions.
What can happen is that a series of events happen which make your mind doubt whether driving is safe. You then have a crash and it’s as if your mind says “Right, that’s the final straw. I’m not letting them drive again”. Your mind will then make you feel scared of driving to stop you from doing it because it thinks that’s a good way of protecting you.
I work with people that have been in all kinds of crashes from minor bumps to major incidents involving death. A common theme among them all is that the driving anxiety was always there, bubbling away under the surface.
How do I deal with anxiety after car accidents?
There are many ways you can overcome anxiety after car accidents.
The methods I use combine 20 years of experience as a driving instructor, hypnosis and many other elements.
Using my vast experience of working with post car crash survivors and my understanding of the mind, we can have your issues resolved quickly.
There’s no such thing as an accident
One of the key things to understand when it comes to overcoming anxiety from car accidents is that there is no such thing as an accident.
I only use the term accident because it’s what people search for but if you think about it, most crashes (with the exception of mechanical failure or deliberate sabotage) are caused by somebody doing something wrong.
This is absolutely vital for you to understand because part of the healing process can involve letting go of blame. Whether the crash was your fault or not, you must be able to own up to that or face the person that was at fault (in your mind) and forgive them. Forgiveness does not mean you agree with what they did but holding onto those feelings of anger and hate will only make things worse.
Think of it like those meetings for people that have drinking problems. The first thing they do is stand up and say “My name is…and I’m an alcoholic”. That’s the same thing – you must be able to face the issue and not keep hiding it or running away from it because that will just make things worse.
