I wonder how experienced this psychologist was, what diagnosis he/she made, and what form of treatment was used. Generally, if this is a phobia arising after the trauma of a car accident, it should respond really well to Cognitive-behaviour therapy ( CBT ). This sort of highly inconvenient bad habit does quite often follow suh a dramatically bad experience, and can be un learned, leaving you free to drive freelly and comfortably
