I am scared to drive, as I think I will be judged or that I will crash my car. I haven’t driven my car for several years. What can I do?

I am sorry to hear you are fearful about driving your car. 

Did you have a bad experience in the car when you used to drive it?

Sometimes frightening experiences stay with us and we avoid them in the future for fear of the same thing happening again.

The only problem with avoidance is the fear just tends to grow.

Often the best thing to do to overcome a fear is to tackle it in manageable steps. 

For example perhaps you could consider:

    1) Talking to a supportive friend or family member about your fear

    2) Thinking about an area or small distance you may feel safe to try driving.

    3) Asking a friend or family member to come with you.

You may have better steps that would work for you?

It's just about looking for a new and safe approach which might encourage your confidence to return.

We also offer a range of flower essences which can help rebalance emotions when faced with stressful situations. 

You could try Confidence Essence to address problems with low confidence from both the past and the present.

If none of this helps you and you would really like to drive again, your could consider trying NLP, Life Coaching or Hypnotherapy to help shift your fears and find a way forward by working with a practitioner trained to help you see and overcome challenges in new and different ways.

I hope you find a way that works for you.
