Meet the people behind Confident Drivers

Every year thousands of potential new drivers struggle to gain their license due to driving nerves and stress. 
It is this that has led to the story behind Confident Drivers which is designed to support both ADIs, nervous drivers and learner drivers to conquer their nerves, control their anxiety and develop confidence on the road.  
The website and its resources have been created by husband and wife team Kev and Tracey with some help from hypnotherapist Joline.

In my day job, I'm a holistic therapist working with cancer patients in a private medical clinic and I enjoy applying my knowledge and experience of stress management into different situations and settings.

I created the two hypnotherapy audios on the website and I help people overcome anxiety issues. Whether you have had a stressful or traumatic experience in the past and you haven’t been the same since, or your nerves are getting in the way of you performing well – we can work together to help you overcome it easily and comfortably. Working from a clinic Moreton-in-Marsh in the beautiful Cotswolds and also online by Skype or Zoom, I love helping people overcome whatever has been holding them back from achieving happiness.

How we have used our experience to create Confident Drivers

Tracey has chosen eight of the most effective stress management techniques and together we have combined our knowledge and experience to apply them to driving anxiety, stress and nerves.  We contacted Joline as she has experience helping others to overcome driving anxiety and we loved the sound of her voice on the hypnotherapy audios so knew our users would too.

A subscription to Confident Drivers gives immediate have access to the most effective stress management techniques to give users the best opportunity to overcome driving anxiety and fears.  Each technique has its own page with exercises, audio and video files, allowing users to trial and choose the ones that work best for them. One size does not fit all!

Kev and Tracey regularly give talks and presentations to driving instructors on the subject of overcoming driving nerves and worries.  We also write a monthly article in DIA's Driver Trainer journal.
