You have been taking driving lessons for months and its going…okay. You’re not a bad driver it’s just that you get a little nervous on busy roads. You don’t like driving in the rain. Remembering the rules about approaching hump back bridges and box junctions is stressing you out. Perhaps it’s worse than stress, perhaps the thought of taking your test is terrifying.
For some people, the thought of taking a driving test or an exam can bring on a panic attack. The mind is signalling the body that it is in grave danger and should do something NOW. The body thinks that it is going to die. It isn’t, of course. Nobody has ever died of a panic attack. You feel like this because of a faulty connection in your mind that needs re-wiring.
There are financial issues that might be making things worse. Learning to drive is expensive and failing your test means even more money. If only there was a way to control your nerves and feel calm behind the wheel. Even better, imagine that you turn the ignition and feel…confident! You can feel this way with hypnotherapy.
Hypnosis works by accessing your deep structure patterns, bypassing the critical faculties. This enables us to get to the heart of the problem, to treat the cause rather than the symptom. Driving test nerves are very common and relatively simple to deal with. A couple of sessions could leave you feeling confident and positive that you are going to pass.
Fear becomes coded into our sub-conscious for a variety of reasons. Hypnosis doesn’t focus so much on why you have a problem and instead focuses on how to change it. The therapist takes you through positive outcomes and wires them into your brain. He installs an anchor that you can fire whenever you want with a deep breath or by pressing your fingers together that will bring a deep feeling of peace.
These techniques also work with anxiety over A-Levels or GCSEs. By taking control of your own mind and re-wiring your responses, you can face almost anything. Let fear be a thing of the past.
