The fear of driving on motorways is actually surprisingly common. I was prompted to write this post today after another enquiry from someone wondering if hypnosis for driving anxiety could help.
The short answer is YES....hypnosis CAN help! You are not the only one with this fear, I promise.

It has come round again. Expect your day to be filled with the pessimistic types out there bemoaning their bad luck and blaming the difficulties on Friday the 13th.This type thought process can become even more pronounced in some people and can develop into Triskaidekaphobia - a fear of Friday 13th. For some people this leads to them not doing anything 'risky' on that day.Risky things can include walking under ladders, seeing one magpie or not saying "touch wood" when appropriate. For some Triskaidekaphobia sufferers they just say indoors all day and don't leave the house for fear of what might happen.The vast majority of these Triskaidekaphobia sufferers don't know all the facts though. They have this Halloween-type association with Friday 13th. The Friday 13th horror films that began in the 1980's have further amplified this mistaken belief.13 Being An Unlucky Number Has A Long History

Richard was very helpful in helping me understand what may be causing my recurrent nightmares. Even after the initial consultation on the phone and then in person just by talking about the issue and having his input I felt I could control them more effectively. The hypnotherapy was something that I hadn't tried before and I found relaxing and interesting. It has been helpful to go back over the recordings of the sessions again. Richard also had some very sensible suggestions for improving my work life balance and skills / tips to decrease the things that cause me stress to do with my work. Thank you very much Richard.

I had suffered from panic attacks regularly in the past due to anxiety, it got to a point where I felt like I couldn't cope anymore. I visited Richard for an initial consultation where he gave me some tips on how to cope until our first session and even that was an unbelievable amount of help. I have had only one session with Richard and I feel as if the anxiety has near enough disappeared from my life. I finally feel like my old self again. Highly recommend, such a lovely man and so easy to get along with, felt like I had known him for years.

Richard was very professional and kind in offering his advice and support for my situation. He is the type of person who would go the extra mile for you. I would recommend his services to anyone.

My problem was weight loss and not having the motivation to do anything about it.
I contacted Richard Hennessy and after one chat and one hypnosis session I was on my way. The actual hypnosis was nothing like I imagined. I thought I would go into a trance like in the movies!! I was totally aware of everything the whole time and at the end felt completely relaxed. Before hypnosis I would eat because it was meal time regardless of whether I was hungry, but after, I only eat when I am hungry and I can leave food on my plate instead of clearing it - a flashback to childhood days when you couldn't leave the table until your plate was clear.
I had one more recording from Richard, because I couldn't get to another appointment, and don't feel I need anymore. If I feel as if I am slipping back into old ways I listen to the recording and feel fine again.
Richard provides a recording of all sessions to take away with you so its not like he is pressuring you to going back again and again.
I would fully recommend him to anyone.

Emetophobia - a fear of sickness or illness, It had a name and i never knew, but thanks to Richard it is now a name i don't associate with me and it is all down to the power of hypnosis .One session of just talking then 4 sessions of hypnosis and now i feel able to do things without having bad thoughts. Cannot thank Richard enough.I first saw Richard in March 2015 since then I have travelled abroad 6times(3 more to go ) something I wouldn't have thought possible especially as I travelled by coach, at the age of 65 a world of travel is something I really enjoy and as I have said before it's all down to Richard thanx again

I sought help from Richard with regard to anxiety and depression. I was looking for help to clear the 'chatter' in my mind so that I can more easily focus and make progress towards goals that are important to me.I found the deep mindfulness I gained from the sessions helped to clear my mind and give me tools that I can use in everyday situations. I am more able to calm myself for work presentations and better focus on what is needed for my family.I feel like I have tapped into the core of who I am and can now channel my inner energy for postive outcomes for me.The recordings of the sessions were great in helping me continue my practice after my sessions with Richard and his nuturing and assertive style made me feel very comfortable and at ease.

Richard may have saved my life! I was smoking 60 cigarettes a day and had no other way to quit. There was not a single thing I wanted to do without smoking and not a single emotion that I didn't associate with smoking.Richard sat with me and talked about all the triggers and issues that I felt, he spent a long time before the session started. Then in the session he made me feel relaxed about everything and confident that we were going to beat the habit.When I came out of the the session, I didn't smoke, and I haven't for over 7 months now. I had tried everything else previously, and he is the only person who has made me feel truly like a non smoker. I hang out with smokers, I go to smokey venues, and I just don't need it myself.He is truly a miracle worker and I am so impressed and grateful for what he did. Thank you Richard, please keep changing people's lives for the better.

I saw Richard during the course of four sessions to help me get my weight under control without going on some magic diet. Richard is a lovely, friendly, and knowledgeable person, who made me feel at ease from the word go. The sessions where highly enjoyable and allowed me to explore the inner knowledge and strength that I already possessed but wasn't aware of, by being nudged in the right direction. I immediately saw a change in my eating habits which have resulted steady loss of around 1 kg per week (16 kg in total so far) without much change in what I eat. Through the sessions, I have learn to regain control of my eating and to allow myself to enjoy food again. If you are serious about losing weight and need someone who you can trust to help you, I can HIGHLY recommend hypnotherapy with Richard! Many thanks :)
