Help with Driving Anxiety in Derby
You’d be surprised how many people come to me looking for help with driving anxiety in Derby. Driving anxiety can be a general anxiety which also manifests itself as a general feeling of anxiety when driving…. or it can be that generally you’re pretty relaxed – but when you drive it becomes a whole new ball game.
I’d say the split between males and females seeking help with driving anxiety in Derby is roughly 50 / 50. It quite often develops from an “incident” either when you were driving, or you were a passenger…or even someone close to you has an “incident”. The fact is, if you accept that you have a conscious mind & a subconscious mind, then everything that ever happens to you in your life gets stored up there somewhere. Hence the “incident” gets stored up there and gets amplified every time you think about driving where that “incident” took place. So, you start to avoid that “place” and pretty soon you’re avoiding driving around those ‘anxiety provoking’ places….and your life just closes in around you. The fact is, the more you avoid those places, the more you send that message to your subconscious that those places are dangerous – and so the phobia increases.
