Do you feel anxious or fearful at the thought of having an injection or blood test?

Many people are fearful of blood or injections and for some, the fear is so intense that it can prevent them from visiting their doctor in case they might be asked to have a blood test. It can even prevent people from going on holiday if travel vaccinations are required.

Fear of Needles & Injections

Nobody likes having injections, but they are a normal part of life and most of us will need an injection or blood test at some point during our lifetime. When we have a fear of something, particularly if we’ve had that fear for a long time, our mind can start to exaggerate things and it can seem a lot worse than it actually is. What is, in reality, a minor event with perhaps a few seconds of mild discomfort, can become a terrifying experience which seems to last a lot longer.

Therapy Sessions

The most effective therapy for you depends on your individual situation. Many people have found hypnotherapy helpful for addressing fear of blood, needles or injections and talking with someone who is impartial and non-judgmental can help you to overcome your fears. Working with your subconscious mind, relaxation and anxiety release techniques can be taught which will enable you to develop a new calmer way of responding and leave the fear behind in the past.

Hypnotherapy, talking therapy and NLP are effective forms of therapy, however people respond differently and therefore results may vary from person to person. Full client commitment and participation is required. Listening to CDs / MP3s and carrying out other therapy tasks between sessions is an essential part of the process and this will be fully explained during your initial consultation.
