woman driving a carElliott Wald has had numerous television appearances proving time and time again, how he can help people overcome their intense phobias.

So what is a phobia?

A phobia is a persistent, irrational fear of, and a desire to avoid, certain object/s, animals, events or situations. The word is derived from the Greek word “phobos” meaning extreme fear and flight. The ancient Greek God, Phobos, was believed to be able to reduce the enemies of the Greeks to a state of terror, making victory in battle more likely.

You are not born with a phobia – it is a learned response. A response that you have simply programmed into your mind, when confronted by the phobic stimulus and sometimes, even the anticipation or thought of the situation is enough to provoke the response; the person then begins to experience the classic symptoms of panic attacks. Using hypnotherapy, Elliott can re-programme your thoughts, change your associations and replace them with new, more appropriate feelings.

Fear of driving

You are not alone; Vehophobia, the fear of driving is a very common phobia. The fear of driving can be extremely terrifying, frightening, not to mention extremely inconvenient and can manifest itself in a number of ways depending on the individual.

Some drivers feel comfortable driving on familiar roads or roads with very little traffic, but are afraid to venture further because they feel they may lose control in unfamiliar territory.

Others may be happy to drive on small roads but have a fear of driving on motorways or dual carriageways. Elliott has seen clients whose fear of driving limits them to driving no more than 40 miles an hour on a motorway.

  • Fear of driving in heavy traffic.
  • Fear of driving at night.
  • Fear of driving on motorways/dual carriageways.
  • Fear of driving over bridges or through tunnels.
  • Fear of driving in bad weather.
  • Fear of driving on unfamiliar roads.
  • Fear of driving and being overtaken.
  • Fear of driving joining a junction.
  • Fear of driving due to expectation of losing control of the vehicle.
  • Fear off driving at all.

When a person experiences some of these fears of driving they can doubt their own ability to drive, they become far more conscious when driving almost hyper-alert which in turn makes the process of driving more difficult. Because the process of driving is controlled by the unconscious, you don’t consciously think I must change gears or put my foot down on the clutch when changing gears, this interference adds anxiety to their real ability to drive.

“My fear of driving prevented me from visiting my friends and family but after just three sessions of hypnotherapy with Elliott Wald, I was able to drive feeling much more relaxed and safe.” Patricia.Y. (Luton)*


What would being free from your fear of driving mean to you?

Hypnosis can help you re-programme your mind to overcome the fear of driving, to feel relaxed and in control when driving whilst maintaining a safe level of focus.

“As a door to door salesman it is a must to be able to drive, however I would increase my working day by at least three hours by taking a bus, when I had a perfectly good car sitting in my garage, the only time I did venture out in my car was late at night when the roads were completely clear. Now that I have had hypnosis I drive to work every day, I have even driven the 200 miles to Scotland for a holiday.” Adrian. P (Luton)*
