If you feel anxious about driving, did the snow the other week make things worse?
Many people have anxiety around driving. It could be that you’re perfectly happy in familiar places but feel that you could never drive on a motorway or through a town; it may be that you’re an anxious driver in all situations.
Chances are you worry about one or all of the following;
- Having a panic attack whilst driving
- Losing control of the car
- Fear of dying in a car crash
- Driving somewhere unfamiliar and breaking down
- A past negative experience around driving, happening again
This is far more common than you think and with a bit of work can be overcome.

It’s about building your confidence in really small steps. In no time at all you’ll be zipping up and down the motorway and driving through London.
