Hypnosis for driving lessons in Birmingham is available with 1stDrive.com.
I’m not just a driving instructor but also a qualified hypnotist who runs a private hypnotherapy and life coaching practice in Birmingham called Hypnosis Fix.
My hypnotherapy name with all the fancy letters after it is Paul Dodd D.Hyp (CECCH), A.D.I
My hypnotherapy qualifications include:
- Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy
- NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) professional life coach
- Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy
- Solution focused counselling skills
- Solution focused hypno-psychotherapy
- Ericksonian hypnotherapy
- Rapid and creative hypnotic inductions
I understand the mind and how it works because I have spent time studying and learning from professionals. The man who taught me is one of the UK’s most experienced and respected hypnotherapists. In his own words he’s been doing it for about 120 years!
I’m not the kind of driving instructor who gets angry and shouts when things go wrong. I understand what is going on in peoples minds and it’s far different to what most people imagine.
I know how to best communicate with people to get the maximum from their potential.
How I use Hypnosis for driving lessons
I do not hypnotise people on driving lessons. I understand how the mind works and I use that when teaching people to help make lessons more effective.
The mention of hypnosis can scare people because they don’t understand it and think it’s dangerous.
Many of you will have images in your mind of Derren Brown and all kinds of stage hypnosis tricks such as making people dance or believe they’re a chicken.
That is stage hypnosis, not hypnotherapy! Yes I can do those things but it isn’t what I use hypnosis for.
Any hypnosis work must be booked and paid for separately through my hypnotherapy practice.
Questions about hypnosis on driving lessons
Is hypnosis used on all driving lessons?
No. I only do it on separate sessions booked through my hypnotherapy practice. The cost of hypnosis is not included in standard driving lessons.
Will I be driving while hypnotised?
No you do not drive while in hypnosis but it would be possible. This is why only qualified hypnotherapists such as myself should use these techniques. It can be dangerous for amateurs to try it because they just don’t know what they are doing.
Contrary to popular belief you do not have to have your eyes closed to be hypnotised. Hypnosis is a state of mind and not a state of eye lids.
If you do not know what you are doing then you could easily think someone is out of trance when they aren’t and go off driving with them still in a hypnotic trance!
Hypnotherapy work is done before you drive and not during driving.
Will you hypnotise the examiner to pass me?
I use hypnosis to improve peoples lives. I do not use it in any way that is unethical or dangerous.
Think of how silly it would be to pass a driving test when you weren’t good enough to pass.
Can you help with my fear of spiders or flying?
Yes I’d be happy to but not on driving lessons.
My hypnotic work must be booked through my hypnotherapy practice.
Can I learn faster using hypnosis?
Do you think you could learn faster when your mind is calmer and you feel more relaxed when driving? There’s your answer.

Other hypnosis services I offer
I offer a full range of services away from driving related hypnosis.
For any of these services please contact me through Hypnosis Fix. I cannot do these things on driving lessons and I can’t answer queries about them through this site.
If you have a phobia such as the fear of spiders, snakes or flying then I could help change that.
Hypnosis can change the way your mind sees situations and alter the way you react to these things.
You can get rid of a life-long fear in as little as one hour – sometimes even 20 minutes!
I have experienced it myself and in under one hour I got rid of a problem that had plagued me for over 30 years.
See my page on hypnosis for anxiety for more details.
If you are a smoker and want to quit then I can help.
Hypnotherapy is one of the most effective way of quitting smoking. You can see results from stop smoking hypnotherapy after as little as two hours.
See my page on stop smoking hypnotherapy for more details.
Hypnotherapy can help you lose weight in a safe and effective way because it gets to the root cause of the problem.
Many people make the mistake of focusing purely on the body when losing weight but the mind is just as important.
See my page on weight loss hypnotherapy for more details.
If you want to achieve more with your life then my life coaching service is for you.
Instead of hypnosis we use NLP (Neuro linguistic programming). This allows us to change the way you think about things, how you see the world and how you feel.
If you want a better job, more money, to be happier or even if you have no idea what you want but want things to change then I can help.
See my page on life coaching for more details.
But I came here for driving lessons!
Yes, lets not forget that the main aim of this site is driving lessons.
I made this page to show you how I’m not just another driving instructor. I have skills and knowledge that few (if any) other instructors have.
My aim has always been to help people achieve their goals of learning to drive and that led to me wanting to help people in many other ways too.
You can read the full story of how I became a hypnotist here or visit my YouTube channel to see more driving lesson videos.
