Needle phobia is thought to affect at least 10% of the population and is when people have a fear of a medical procedure that involves needles or injections. For many this is related to a fear of seeing blood, or simply thinking about the injection. Which may make them feel faint. Often needle phobia has its origins in bad memories of injections as a child.
Hypnotherapy can help you overcome needle phobia by putting you in a relaxed state of mind and making positive suggestions to your subconscious mind. These positive suggestions can help you disassociate yourself from the phobia or fear. This can take the emotion of the needle away from you and leave you feeling much more in control and calmer about going for an injection or blood test.
