Whether you’re new to driving or returning after a break or after an accident, Self-Hypnosis can help you to learn how to remain calm, relaxed and confident whilst driving, feeling positive and competent even when driving on a motorway. You may never have a fear of driving again once you have allowed the process of Hypnotherapy to change how you think, feel and react.
By using visual imagery, positive self-talk and post-hypnotic techniques you will learn how to control and eliminate feelings of fear, anxiety, and panic, making driving a pleasure rather than a dreaded chore.
Driving fears can be closely related to the feelings of lack of control, and lack of confidence.
The fear can cause negative self-talk about all the worse case scenarios that could or might happen, all the ‘what if’s’ and ‘maybe’s’ and thinking about these causes anxiety, activating the flight or fight reaction because there is a perceived danger.
How Self Hypnosis helps
Once the subconscious mind is re-programmed and the flight or fight reaction is turned off, you will find that your body becomes more relaxed, your mind is clear and focused and you feel calmer. Using Hypnotherapy you will find that you become more positive and empowered to try things that you never thought possible such as driving to places you have not ventured to before, driving longer distances and to places and even driving on motorways.
Whilst using Self-Hypnosis, you will become progressively more and more relaxed until you enter a deep, relaxed, hypnotic trance state. The deep relaxation process will distract the conscious, critical part of your mind, and while this happens, positive suggestions are given directly to the unconscious part of the mind, and this is where the fundamental changes take place. These changes then infiltrate through to the conscious mind, so that the changes experienced in the ‘hypnotic’ state become realties in the wakeful state.
This technique is used by sports psychologists with great success and it so simple and easy to use. Everyone responds to Hypnotherapy and Self-Hypnosis differently, just as people do to any form of therapeutic intervention. Some will notice an instant change and for others it may take longer, but even when it feels that nothing at all has actually happened, you’ll be surprised at just how much has changed, but this is only noticed in retrospect, when you look back at how you were before you started using Hypnotherapy. Just give it time and don’t try too hard to make it happen.
You will find that the more often you use self-hypnosis, the easier it will be to achieve a very relaxed state of hypnosis, and the deeper the hypnotic trance state will become.
Is Self Hypnosis Safe
Hypnosis has been used for centuries and is recognised by medical practitioners in the National Health Service, where it is being successfully used to control the symptoms of IBS. It has helped millions of people to stop smoking, lose weight, and conquer their phobias and fears, such as fear of the dentist and fear of heights. Positive thoughts result in positive re-actions, which bring positive success and achievement. When Hypnotherapy is used for improving health, the process can actually affect the way the body functions. By focusing on certain biological and physiological aspects of the body, whilst in a state of hypnosis, it is possible to cause blood to flow better, veins to dilate, heart rate to reduce, and white blood cells counts to increase, thus improving the immune system.
Self-Hypnosis is a powerful self-help tool for implementing change within your life. Hypnotherapy is simple, effective, and non-invasive, produces long-term changes, and can be used by almost everyone. You will always be in control at all times, able to awaken immediately should the need arise and attend to anything that you need to. Hypnotherapy cannot make you do anything or say anything that you would not normally say or do, and it will never coerce you to try to.
