Where does driving anxiety come from?

That’s one of the most common questions people ask when they start to suffer from a fear of driving.

If you’re one of the many people that used to drive without even thinking about it but now find yourself trapped by fear then this page will explain why.

Where does driving anxiety come from?

Driving anxiety comes from your mind stopping you from driving because it thinks that’s the best thing for you.

I’ve worked with hundreds of anxious drivers and heard all kinds of reasons as to why their mind was giving them a fear of driving. When you first start hearing these stories they can sound odd and make no sense at all – that’s the point!

Think about it: if fixing driving anxiety was as simple as thinking back to when you had a car crash then you’d be able to fix the problem easily.

It doesn’t work like that and this is where many people, sufferers and therapists alike, make the classic mistake.

The classic mistake to avoid

Driving anxiety has nothing to do with driving.

Driving is just the symptom, the way that the real problem shows itself to you. The more you go looking for a driving-related memory of a crash or a time you had something bad happen when driving, the further you’ll be from fixing driving anxiety.

I can’t tell you how many times I bang my head against a wall every time I see an “expert” on YouTube telling people to just relax, play soft music or push through.

That is never to work because you’re working on the wrong thing!

Think of it like if you had a puddle of water keep appearing on the floor of your house. It’s no good just keep mopping it up, you need to find the source of the problem; the leaking pipe.

It’s your subconscious mind that stops you from driving

All problems in your life come from your subconscious mind. Well, maybe not a leaking pipe but you know what I mean.

Imagine this like using a phone and trying to load an app.

You tap on the app but it won’t load. You tap it again and nothing happens. What’s going on here is that the code in the background is broken so it just won’t load. You can tap it all you like and the app icon will look fine but it just won’t work. You have to uninstall the app, reinstall it and then it’ll work.

That’s a lot like fixing someone with driving anxiety. It’s pointless to just keep going out driving over and over, hoping that something will change. It won’t.

We need to reinstall your driving skill and get you back to how you used to be. We need to reload your code, just like we did with the app.

It takes as little as one hour and can be done online so there’s no need to leave your home and I can help you wherever you are in the world.

What if you never could drive in the first place? No problem, I can still help!

Does it work?

People always ask me if it works. Just go and look at my results for the answer!

What makes it work is my mix of skills. You won’t get the same result from a cheap therapist or an online MP3 that you’ll find on YouTube.

That’s because your problem has a cause that is unique to you. How could you possibly find that by listening to a generic MP3 track? You can’t. Even with all my skill, and even with my own tracks, it’s just not possible.

I know it can be annoying to have to spend time fixing a problem but let me let you in a secret:

You’re not just fixing driving anxiety!

Think of all the things you could do in your life once you can drive. It opens up many doors and it’s even better still: many clients of mine report other changes in their life.

Your whole life could improve with you feeling happier and more confident all around. Just imagine how it would feel to remove the weight and burden of driving anxiety from your shoulders.

It’s impossible for you to just get rid of the driving so get ready for all the other good stuff too!
