If you’re experiencing anxiety, complete with shaking, sweating, nausea, and a pounding heart when you sit behind the wheel, buckle your seat belt, and pull out into traffic you likely have a driving phobia. In some instances, this driving fear is so bad that people won’t move to a house unless there’s a bus stop nearby, or they won’t take a job because it might require them to drive somewhere.
Whether your driving phobia only pops up at certain times – like during rush hour, out on the highway, or in the rain – or whether it strikes any time you have to get behind the wheel, you could conquer your fear of driving with hypnosis.
Why Does Hypnosis for the Fear of Driving Work ?
Your driving anxiety isn’t random. You may not know what it is, but there is a specific cause driving your fear – and that cause lies in your subconscious mind. In order to overcome your fear of driving, you will have to take advantage of a treatment that specifically addresses your subconscious mind. The only one that does is hypnosis.
Fear Of Driving Hypnosis Testimonial
What will happen to you during fear of driving hypnosis sessions?
We at the NYC Hypnosis Center will guide you into a trance-like state, during which, you will be very relaxed and able to concentrate much more than you normally can. You will be fully aware of what’s going on, but your heightened focus will give you access to subconscious thoughts. While you’re in this state, we will ask you questions that are designed to draw out the reason behind your driving phobia.
What kind of reasons are there for your fear?
A driving anxiety can be caused by all sorts of things. Yours could be due to something you experienced earlier in life – like a car accident you were involved in when you were five years old. Or, it could be due to something you don’t even consciously remember – like seeing mangled cars on the side of the highway after a crash that you had nothing to do with. However, if your subconscious has fixated on something trivial like this and has blown it out of proportion, it could explain your current fear.
What makes Hypnosis effective with a Fear of Driving?
Once the initial sensitizing event is identified, we can help change how your subconscious experiences that occurence. In doing so, your subconscious will understand that driving doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ll be involved in an accident. Your new perspective allows your subconscious to understand the difference between basic driving risks and an irrational response. This can enable you to overcome your fear of driving and get back behind the wheel – and out on the open road!
By accentuating the positives of driving in your visualizations, you can train your mind to think of driving in a positive light. When you reframe the way your mind perceives driving, you free yourself of this fear and open yourself to a world of limitless possibilities.
