Challenge yourself in virtual reality
Get rid ofyour fear of driving
Amaxophobia affects nearly 5% of adults and particularly those between 20 and 40 years old. Women are the most affected by this phobia: one woman out of two would be amaxophobic.
For more than 30 years, virtual reality exposure therapies have proven to be effective in the treatment of anxiety disorders and in particular in specific phobias such as fear of public places and open spaces. Gradual and progressive exposure to virtual reality can desensitise you and significantly reduce your anxiety.
“Virtual reality shows 80% effectiveness, with benefits that are maintained over a year after treatment.” Eric Malbos, Psychiatriste

“When I was young, I was in a car accident as a passenger. It was terrifying, and it has stayed with me to this day. Because of that, I always refused to get my license. It became crippling when I found out I was going to be a father. I realized that I couldn’t afford to put us in an awkward position just because I was afraid to drive. So while waiting for the arrival of the baby, I started a psychological follow-up and I expose myself to situations on the road in virtual reality. I’m starting my first hour of driving in a few days and I already feel calmer to face it.“
Camille N. 28 years old
“I started to fear the highway without really knowing why. Other drivers scared me. I scared myself. I had no confidence in my driving and little by little, I started to avoid the highways completely. I want to regain this confidence, which is why I decided to try the virtual reality solution, which seems to me to be a good alternative to start gently. Thanks to the follow-up of my psychologist, I am getting better and better at understanding my fear and controlling my anxiety.“
Emilie P. 39 years old
“I got my driver’s license quite late, but living in a big city, I didn’t practice much after that. When we moved, and driving became essential, I was unable to get back behind the wheel! I lived with this fear for a long time, but I couldn’t go on like that. I have two children, and I don’t want to put them in trouble because their mother is too terrified to take them to school or to the gym. I started home therapy and my psychologist is helping me to face my fears and confront them. I am slowly gaining confidence and learning to manage my anxiety.”
