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.

Tracey Field, BSc (Hons) Psych, Dip Stress Management TrainingMindfulness & Stress Management practitioner
I am a trained mindfulness teacher qualified in stress management techniques and recently graduated from the Open University with a psychology degree. In my day job, I'm a holistic therapist working with cancer patients in a private medical clinic. I enjoy applying my knowledge and experience in stress management to different situations and settings. While I am not a driving instructor, I have been actively involved in the driver training industry for several years supporting Kev and his business, as well as writing articles, giving talks and delivering workshops to help driving instructors to support their nervous students.
Kev Field
Kev FieldThe Driving Confidence Coach
In recent years I have trained with the Coaching Academy to become a personal development and business coach and NLP practitioner and I aim to inspire and encourage others, through my passion for coaching, so that they can improve their driving confidence. I have a long background in the driving industry. As well as being a personal development coach, I am an experienced instructor and ADI trainer of over ten years and I wanted to find a way to support my pupils and offer a better learning experience. My experience in the driver training industry includes being a Grade A ORDIT registered instructor and I'm one of a handful of people that delivered the BTEC4 on behalf of the Tri-Coaching Partnership as well as being a Driver Metrics trainer. Previous to being an instructor I drove professionally and am able to drive anything from a forklift to an articulated lorry, gaining my HGV license at the age of 21. I combine my in-depth knowledge of road users and behaviour, driver training and coaching to empower you to achieve your driving goals.

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 overcoming driving nerves and worries.  We also wrote a series of monthly articles in DIA's Driver Trainer journal and have given opinon pieces for mainstream media.

We launched The Driving Confidence Podcast in order to help more more anxious drivers along with creating The Drive Calm Journal to offer a practical approach to building driving confidence.
