Share Tweet LinkedIn Pin Case studies Fears and Phobias Resolving a Driving Phobia April 7th 2019 Fears and Phobias The challenge I had a driving phobia based on driving to new and unfamiliar places following an unpleasant driving experience 7 years ago. The effect It has held me back for 7 years. I would only drive to new places when accompanied by another driver or would simply avoid having to drive anywhere different alone. This has prevented me from taking my son to play in rugby matches and has had an impact on my working life since I would not drive to site offices and remained very much office based. Solution I'm not quite sure what the NLP Professional did, except talk with me - and I still found the experience quite intense, very tiring but enormously empowering and liberating! I would like to add that the NLP Professional was very reassuring, I felt in very safe hands and he was most supportive. It was also helpful to have a follow-up chat with him a couple of weeks later and to know that should I ever need to talk to him, he is on the end of a phone. Result As soon as I had completed the session, I felt an immediate sense of relief. I started to look forward to tackling my driving and drove somewhere new on my own, the day after my session. On completing this journey I felt an enormous sense of achievement, I was quite euphoric and am challenging myself on a regular basis to build on my new found confidence. I refuse to let this hold me back any longer.
