Hypnotherapy Fear of Driving. The fear of driving and of panic attacks while driving is becoming surprisingly common and it is a phobia. Although there can be many causes for your fear of driving acute driving anxiety is often closely related to agoraphobia. It may often produce the same feelings of loss of control and panic.

This fear of driving whether it be chronic or acute can be truly incapacitating, seriously affecting your work and social life.
Origins of Fear of DrivingWhat Causes Driving Anxiety
You weren’t born with a fear of driving; it has to be learned. Like all phobias, it is an illogical and irrational fear that often seems to sprung upon you from nowhere. Psychologically speaking, your fear of driving is a ‘conditioned response’. It could have come about because of a previous negative experience in which fear was subconsciously paired with driving.
You may have felt in danger while driving,maybe it was a dark and lonely road, or a violent storm and your subconscious mind then automatically associated the fear response with driving. In Psychology we call this Operant Conditioning.The fear having been learned can then be triggered any time whenever you are in a similar driving situation. Your fear of driving may have come about at a stressful time in your life, a relationship breakdown, a bereavement, moving house or any other stressful event. Somewhere in your subconscious mind this stressful event has become related to driving.
