Driving Phobia Relief Session

Effects of phobia

The symptoms of a phobia can range from mild feelings of apprehension and anxiety to a full-blown panic attack. Typically, the closer you are to the thing you’re afraid of, the greater your fear will be. Your fear will also be higher if getting away is difficult.

PHYSICAL SYMPTOMS

  • Difficulty breathing

  • Racing or pounding heart

  • Chest pain or tightness

  • Trembling or shaking

  • Feeling dizzy or light-headed

  • A churning stomach

  • Hot or cold flashes; tingling sensations

  • Sweating

EMOTIONAL SYMPTOMS

  • Feeling overwhelming anxiety or panic

  • Feeling intense need to escape

  • Feeling “unreal” or detached from yourself

  • Fear of losing control or going crazy

  • Feeling like you’re going to die or pass out

  • Knowing that you’re overreacting, but feeling powerless to control fear

CAUSES OF PHOBIA

It is unusual for a phobia to start after the age of 30 years,

and most begin during early childhood, the teenage years, or early adulthood.They can be caused by a stressful experience, a frightening event, or a parent or household member with a phobia that a child can ‘learn.’

Specific phobias

These usually develop before the age of 4 to 8 years. In some cases, it may be the result of a traumatic early experience. One example would be claustrophobia developing over time after a younger child has an unpleasant experience in a confined space.

Phobias that start during childhood can also be caused by witnessing the phobia of a family member. A child whose mother has arachnophobia, for example, is much more likely to develop the same phobia.

Treatment for Phobia

The good news is that you are not born with such fears and phobias.  They are formed as a learned response from previous negative or traumatic experiences.  These images get imprinted in your mind. For example, you may have been in a road accident, or been a witness of an accident, or perhaps it began after an incident where you felt pressured by another aggressive driver.

1.The Drive to Start Things – Confident people start things. They are not shy about striking out on a new idea even when those around them are still pondering it.

As with other fears and phobias that are stored in the unconscious part of the mind, using hypnosis and NLP can access this area where you can replace this negative behaviour pattern with a positive pattern.  This means that in the future you will be more relaxed when you drive, whilst maintaining focus and control.

The combinations are endless as you are a unique individual, but the good news is that with the help of my experience I will be able to help you overcome the fear. Therapy for phobias has a great track record. Not only does it work extremely well, but you tend to see results very quickly—sometimes in as a little as one to four sessions. However, support doesn’t have to come in the guise of a professional therapist. Just having someone to hold your hand or stand by your side as you face your fears can be extremely helpful.

Avoiding a Crash

The system is effective in avoiding an accident because it:

  • Warns the driver of a possible threat of collision while driving in traffic or on the highway. If the driver is not responsive to the warning, the system reduces the speed of the vehicle
  • When a pedestrian walks out in the path of the vehicle, the system shows how to stop in such an emergency
  • Prevents the motionless vehicle from driving into the rear end of another motionless vehicle.
  • We have developed a wide range of technology for the FCAT systems and these differ in:
  • The range of detection
  • Response time

Our investigation shows there are possible benefits of owning and using FCAT in your vehicle. The ultimate benefit is a combination of long range detection such as adaptive cruise control and a shorter range, wider angle system such as the ability to detect a pedestrian.
