Lisa came to me asking for help with a fear of driving. She had passed her test some years ago but been too afraid to drive in the last two years. Having bought a second business she was frustrated with having to ask for friends and her husband to take her between shops and she really wanted the freedom to pick her kids up. Lisa felt it was the right time to get it sorted and just like so many clients when they first come she was a little dubious about my services but open minded to put the techniques into practice and see. Here's what happened:
I have just driven for the first time in about 2 years. I took the plonge and did it. I was nervous but once in the car I feel very in control and surprisingly less anxious that I thought I would be. I remembered to breath and kept telling myself I can do it . I went with my husband and then after 20 minutes kicked him out and went by myself. Taking myself to the supermarket and back. I have you to thank for this and I am so grateful for the help you gave me.
I honestly didn't think it would work for me but the proof is in the pudding and I drove. There was no click in the brain that changed but my confidence just slowly started to build thinking I can do this. I bought the car without test driving it so was praying I would do it.
Thank you so much
Lisa's confidence is still growing. Her new found skills are even spreading into other areas of her life as she messaged me to say she'd gone on a walk last week, they got lost and instead of panicking actually felt calm. Lisa was quite surprised and chuffed with herself......and rightly so!!!
