We’re grateful to Diane Hall for her generous offer of FREE help with emotional challenges and pupil retention:
As an ADI & therapist, Diane from L of a way 2 Pass specialises in helping learner drivers overcome driving anxiety and test nerves. Using the same psychological techniques that helped the survivors of the Rwandan Genocide and Hurricane Katrina deal with seemingly unsurmountable trauma and hardship, she can also help with fears, panic attacks and anxiety disorders. All of these techniques are demonstrated in Driving Test Nerves Pro, and all ADIs/PDIs can access this totally free of charge until the end of July. Your pupils can also benefit from the techniques, which in addition to helping with pupil retention, will ensure that they are getting help with the range of emotions that they will experience when returning to driving, especially those with tests booked! You can access Driving Test Nerves Pro here
We are all having to deal with so many different emotions every day at the moment, and this can create a sense of total overwhelm, and dread. Stress affects us physiologically as well as psychologically, it affects our sleep, and also our immune system, creating a vicious circle of anxiety. Many people are experiencing on a daily basis stress, fear, panic, anxiety, loneliness, loss of purpose & identity not to mention sleepless nights worrying about money, their friends and family, and their business, and for this reason, Diane & Chris are also hosting FREE zoom webinars to any group or association to help members, aimed at dealing with emotions both for ourselves and for our pupils. If any groups or association would like more information, please contact her on 07930607406, email email@example.com, or visit www.Lofaway2pass.com.
