    Review quote
    Featured in the Daily Telegraph and Prima magazine. 'I would recommend this book. [This book] helps you to realise how common the fear of driving is, no matter what your age or experience behind the wheel and provides a step-by-step guide to overcoming your fear, from getting used to being in the car, to what can you do to prevent anxiety building up when you are driving. The stories of others who have successfully dealt with their fear are very inspiring. You will feel a sense of relief when you read about many other people who have had the same thoughts and feelings as you.' ANXIETY UK (Anxious Times, Summer, 2013) 'A helpful and accessible book that I would recommend to anyone who has a fear of driving' BRITISH SOCIETY OF CLINICAL & ACADEMIC HYPNOSIS
