Hi Sy,
Thank you so much for coming to seeing me in the car to help me to drive on the freeways. It means so much to me to be able to share my progress with you. You are a huge part of me reaching my goals. Thank you again for the tools you gave me to be able to achieve my independence with confidence.
You are a huge gift to my life. Hope all is well!
Best regards,

Dear Sy,
I wish to thank you for all of your help in the car, in allowing me to achieve my driver’s license. I have been driving virtually everywhere on the freeways in Orange County from the District to Fashion Island. None of this would have been possible without you. Before we had our sessions together, I was a nervous wreck because I had a little accident with my mother in the car. Now thanks to you, I now love to drive.
Thank you again. You have helped me to change my life!

Until I began my sessions with Sy I would not even touch my car from previous accidents that I was in. He was extremely patient and understanding. It took a few sessions for me to actually start driving and once I did he had me repeat “It’s not as bad as I thought” and he was right. These affirmations help you in every aspect of your life. The more he helped me realize it was okay the more I felt okay. Sy is extremely selfless to help people in this position. He never gets frustrated with you he just keeps encouraging you until you get through each obstacle. Then after a while I drove to the grocery store and to a new job at work, it felt amazing. Sy is wonderful and I cannot thank him enough for my independent life back.
I cannot thank you enough. J.B. Sherman Oaks, CA.
Hi Sy,
I can’t thank you enough after seeing me in the car to help me with my driving. I am still amazed now when I’m on the freeway alone and usually feeling calm and happy! I will continue to use CD’s with your Survival Kit. They remind me of techniques to use to relax myself and change my attitude in the car and elsewhere.
The affirmations have become second nature- like old friends-. I feel I am not alone. They reinforce truths that bolster my confidence. I am more aware of my triggers and I have concrete tools to deal with panic. I feel proud of myself and this tremendous accomplishment!
Thank you so much!
S.I. West Los Angeles, CA
After our sessions in the car with Sy and his Survival Kit, I can now get into the car and drive somewhere without making excuse after excuse not to do so.
To think that I would feel comfortable driving at all, let alone in Los Angeles, was unimaginable even two months ago.
I grew up in England, got my license, but never drove. Sy made me feel at ease straight away, and each time we tried something a bit more demanding (often outside of my comfort zone, but only if I agreed to it). The mere fact he felt I could drive on the freeway (for instance) gave me the confidence boost I needed to do it. And then I did it!
As the CD says, “I can now go where I want, when I want and how I want.”

Hi Sy,
You helped me, in the car, tackle a 40 year phobia with a calm, simple, but consistent methods.
I feel hugely proud and so very grateful for my new found freedom.
Even more than the freedom and the convenience of freeway driving, I love the feeling of confidence and faith in myself that I was able to ask for help, receive it and reap its many rewards.
My favorite affirmation is “I will only be given today what I can handle” it has proven so true.
Thank you, thank you, Sy.

Dear Sy,
Once that trust was there with you in the car with me, I decided that if you did not give up on me I would not give up on you. I never thought I would be able to drive again. I had not driven a car since my divorce over 20 years a go. I was very impatient with being “desensitized” in the car and I thought I should just get in and be able to drive. This month I have driven my granddaughter to school, myself to work, the grocery store (where I burst out crying the first few times with gratitude that I could do it) and to church. Wow what a feeling! If I can do it any one can. I will never take driving for granted again and I will always be grateful that I can drive alone once more. Thank you again, C.H. Sherman Oaks, CA
Hi Sy:
It’s been a while since we last spoke and you saw me in the car. I just wanted to let you know that I have indeed resumed freeway driving. I woke up one day & told myself I can do this! First trip was out to Simi Valley with a friend as encourager and since then several more, including out to Camarillo to visit my sister.
Thanks for the help you provided, J.H. Pomona, CA

Telephone sessions

Dear Sy,
Just a note of thanks, our telephone sessions knocked me out – simply being aware that I wasn’t alone is something to get use to! I honestly think I’m ‘beyond help’ (well past the age ‘normal’people run for their licenses) but, again, its reassuring to know I’m not completely ‘off the wall’ with my fears. I cant seem to get behind the wheel. (past life experiences with car accidents!) It’s this tremendous anxiety that I’ll cause an accident.
Thank you again for helping me change these believes.

Dear Sy,
Our telephone sessions have greatly improved my confidence and accelerated my progress. I am happy to tell you that I actually volunteered to drive to the grocery store and back yesterday in the new car.?This was major progress for me.
I did follow the instructions from you to breathe first, and the rest of the steps before starting the engine with the CD from the Survival Kit. I believe it did help a lot. It’s amazing!
I have also listened to your new CD, Peaceful Odyssey. I particularly enjoyed the nature sounds. I also very much appreciate the verbal affirmations.
Thank you, I will do the exercises daily.

Hi Sy,
After our very helpful telephone sessions, I studied and used your Survival Kit, as directed, I had good understanding about my driving problems.
For a very long time I couldn’t think, talk, or write about driving. I still had serious phobias on expressways, switching lanes, driving on curvy or uneven roads. Soon, I noticed that my driving phobias were improving. I was less scared, and more confident to do it.
I get so excited when I am able to drive on the roads that cause me panic attacks for years.
I also have a new approach and attitude to life. I am much more relaxed and happier person than before.
Thanks so much and I can’t thank you enough.
Sincerely, S.L., Ithica, NY
Hi Sy,
I’ve enjoyed or telephone sessions very much. I’m now a lot more knowledgeable on using your Survival Kit and following the directions. I’m listening to your CD’s in my car for the past two months, and I just want to say thank you!
It has definitely helped me. I have a lot of work ahead of me still, but now I’m relaxed driving again on the local freeways, one on-ramp at a time. I can now go out and “practice” by myself–with your CD’s helping me to stay calm and reassured!
I feel very fortunate to have found your Web site and your CDs.
Thanks again! L.C. Sunnyvale, CA
Hi Sy,
I just wanted to let you know that I have made improvements! After our phone sessions, I am able to drive, in the middle lane, on the freeway. I’ve been able to accomplish this on trips of about 20 miles! I’m so thrilled. My anxiety factor is much less and I am able to control when it seems to rise. Thank you for your guidance. I know I couldn’t have done it without you and the tapes! Thank you. Sincerely, R. M. Texas
Dear Sy,
I just wanted to let you know that your breathing techniques for driving in a more relaxed manner helped me in a completely different area. I was 3 hours in my dentist’s chair and if I had not had the tools to do my breathing exercises and go to my “special” place I would have jumped out of that chair and would have had a panic attack at any moment. I did not have a panic attack and I was so much more comfortable when I had something else to think about. Thank you for teaching me these techniques. C.K. North Hollywood CA
Hello again, Sy.
Thank you for the telephonic therapy sessions and your Survival Kit. I learned a lot about myself and my problems and that I must take one step at a time. I would very much like to join your driver support group. I look forward to communicating with other people who share my phobias, fears, and feelings. I will keep in touch with you regarding my progress.

Hi Sy,
I have been struggling with panic disorder for 12 years and have seen my world get smaller and smaller over that time. I would wake up with a pit in my stomach worry about how it was going to make it to work each day. After our telephone sessions and listening to the CDs and Survival Kit you have sent me I have expanded my comfort zones traveling to work and feel more relaxed then I have in over 12 years! You have provided me with the tools and resources that make my road trips relaxing….I can’t believe I am the same person. I TRULY believe that nothing will happen to me while driving. I know I’m not going to die, or loose control of the car and crash which was a big step for me. Just the other day I came out of work and realized WOW I feel more relaxed in my car then even at work!. … Thanks Sy V.F. Newark, N.J.
Dear Sy,
Thanks again for our telephone sessions. I have been listening to the CDs daily. I find them to be inspirational and relaxing. As a matter of fact, the other night I had my first driving-related positive dream. In the past I have dreamt about being on the passenger side of the car, and my husband is no longer driving so, I dream the car is not manageable. But—the other night, I dreamt that everyone at work had to take a written driving test. I had just taken the test, and was saying, “it’s easy!”, and felt positive about it. This was new… D.M.

With Survival Kit

Hi Sy,I really appreciate your program it has helped me so much, I only wish I would have found it a long time ago! If you have any more cd’s other than the one that I have for the car, I would be interested in purchasing it from you. Thanks again.
D.P. Brooklyn, NY
Dear Sy,
I have received my Survival Kit and have started to put it into practice! I am so thank full for this I could cry. I have driven on my own for the first time in 10 years, just once – still a long way to go!!! This has been a big break through for me. I have always known how important it is to breath properly if you suffer from anxiety and I have listened to many tapes, but it never quite “clicked” into place until I heard you talk about it on your tape!!! It has had a real impact on me and I am really putting this into practice every day.
Thank you so much! P.A.. U.K.
Hi Sy,
I have listened to your CDs a few times. I have seen your DVD and see that I’m not alone.
I have driven the van in my neighborhood twice for 1/2 hr each time.
My next accomplishment is to get to the stores. Can you believe a women who doesn’t go shopping as often because she waits for the husband to take her.
P.S. I find your CDs great for general relaxation. Thanks for making them. They’ve helped a great deal when life get’s hectic.
Take Care,
M.A.F., Ontario, Canada
Dear Sy,
I’ve tried several different methods to help my driving. I click with the tools of your Survival Kit the most because it’s simple and enjoyable. The exercises you recommended are tangible, practical, and easy to follow. I now can drive to places I need to go in town just fine and I am so happy about that.

Hello Sy,
I played your CD “Peaceful Odyssey” in the car. It made my ride much smoother and controlled my thoughts and one thought did stick with me, that is, I can decide what kind of day I want to have. ?That instantly brought a smile to my face and I said ok.?I have a new word that seems to apply more these days, “Better”.?I am better than I expected or the experience was better than I expected or my evening was better than I expected.
Thank you so much,
G.L. Huston TX
Dear Sy,
The contents of the DVD are excellent. I really liked your tips on changing lanes and judging distances. It makes so much sense that you covered those topics. In Driver’s Ed, not only did they not take us on the highway, they never discussed anything like changing lanes, merging into traffic, etc…so I thank you for that.

Hi Sy!
I think of you often, and thank you and God for solving my interstate driving phobia. Since I have become active as an independent movie actor, I have to drive anywhere from one to five hours for movie shoots. This would be a nightmare if I weren’t able to drive on the interstates. I listen to your recordings every few weeks to prevent a relapse. Your recording truly works magic. Thank you!!!
Cheers, ?S.B. KY
Dear Sy,
I can’t tell you enough that how happy I was and how much I appreciated your help.
Now I can’t say that I can doing these things effortlessly but I am making steady progress. I get so excited when I am able to drive on the roads that cause me panic attacks a year ago.
I wanted to let you know that your Survival Kit not only helped my driving, but also my approach and attitude to life. I am much more relaxed and happier person than before.
Thanks so much and I can’t thank you enough.

Dear Sy
I had a lot more fears to conquer than the fear of driving, but your programme was a wonderful starting place. After leaving a terrible marriage and being so paralyzed with fear that I could barely even speak for months. I used to have your affirmations pasted onto my steering wheel. If I had to pull over and cry and calm myself down in order to stop shaking, you taught me that that was all right. Purchasing your programme was the best money I have ever spent in my life. You provide a valuable service and I am very grateful for it.
Thank you again. I am not exaggerating when I tell you that you helped to save my life. Have a fabulous day, and may the sun shine upon you forever. S.H. Toronto, Canada
Hi Sy
The greatest thing I’m learning is that it is so much better to be facing my fear than to be worrying about it. I was at a wedding in Wisconsin this weekend, about 175 miles from me. My boyfriend drove on the way there, but I drove the entire way home! There were many merges and I did ok! I never dreamed that I could do that, but I did it! I still have a ways to go, but I’m on the right road. I’ll continue to listen to your tapes and say the affirmations. I love how you say it’s ok if I always don’t do so great. The most important thing is that I’m doing the best that I can. It really has made me realize that merging isn’t so bad. Thanks for all the help you have given me in this short period of time. I’ll keep you posted on my progress. S.G. Minneapolis, MN
Dear Sy,
I just wanted to let you know how much you changed my life. I had grown up in an urban environment. However, I had move to the suburbs and found myself trapped and totally afraid to drive. Slowly but surely, I listened to the CD’s and did the affirmations. I started just driving down my street and around the corner.. One day, I got to the store, then one day, I got on the freeway. I listened to your CD whole time. I never thought there would be a time when I wouldn’t grip the steering wheel with sweaty palms. I was just telling my husband the other day, I would never have believed that I would say that I enjoy driving! So, thank you from the bottom of my heart, you have truly changed my life. Best, L.B.. Palm Springs , CA
Hi Sy:
I really want to thank you for providing me with these CDs and the Survival Kit. I had severe feelings of panic while highway driving for about 10 years, and although I would force myself to do it despite fear, it was extremely scary and difficult. I have much less fear surrounding it, and always have the comfort of knowing I can hear your reassuring voice whenever I need to in the car. It is quite a comfort to have those CDs, and to be changing my thought patterns while driving. I am now starting to really understand that I can do this – and I don’t have to face it alone. Thank you! A.L. Los Angeles CA
Dear Mr. Cohn:
I purchased your Survival Kit over a year ago and finally about three months ago started listening to the tapes and actually wore out the affirmation tape. I had to go to the Phil. Intl. Airport and I kept breathing and repeating my favorite affirmations and got through it with only a slight anxious moment when I saw a huge bridge which we were not even going to be crossing. Thank you very much for your program. I was honestly skeptical at first and am now a believer. It is given me a new sense of power and confidence in my life as well and has rid me of the shame I felt at being highway challenged. Next adventure the bridge! Sincerely, D.A. Philadelphia, PA
Dear Sy,Guess What? I successfully drove 8 hours Friday to AL and 8 hours home yesterday!!! Ididn’t get lost or too badly shaken. Thank you so much. I can honestly say that your advice has helped me. I did pray a lot. I am not a “white light” person but do believe in the power of God but have trouble putting it into practice. Bless you, J. P. FL
Hi, Sy,
I loved the idea of making my own survival kit, and made one with a plastic quirt bottle of lavender water for when I experienced physical problems… and a stuffed animal, a gorilla with a very understanding look whom I called, “God the Gorilla.” Having conversations with God while driving really helped, as I complained to him, expressed my feelings, chided with him, made deals, even used profanity! Great therapy! I started to feel well enough to trade my old car in for a new one, and that did it. I worried a bit about backsliding, but it’s been a month, and so far so good.
Keep helping people. J.M. Hawaii
Hello Sy,
I must tell you how much just listening to your program a few times has really helped. I am so happy to report that I not only drove to Pa. (1 hr. 15 min. away) alone AND took my ski lessons as I wanted, I’ve also recently driven my elderly parents to a Dr. in Phila. Pa. My father actually said to me “You’re a very good driver”. I smiled because he has no idea of the stresses I would have been going through before getting your program. I can honestly say, that I now look foreward to driving to new places just to challenge my new skills.
Thanks so much for your wonderful work. Sincerely, T.S. NJ
