Fear of Needles & Injections

The fear of needles and injections is quite common and can vary in severity. For some the fear can be so severe that it can prevent them from visiting the Doctor just in case a blood test may be required and avoiding holiday destinations that may require vaccination.

As with many fears and phobias it could be down to a past experience or just the thought of it makes you anxious that your mind beingins to run away with itself with how it may feel.

No one I have met actually enjoys having injections, but they are a normal part of life. Most of us will need an injection or blood test at some point in our lives. Our subconscious mind although vital can exaggerate our natural fear responses to the point where, in reality, will be a a moment or two f mild discomfort can become a terrifying experience that seems to last much longer.

The subconscious mind learns as does the conscious and the subconscious can unlearn it’s damaging responses. The longer the reinforcement of damaging behaviours occurs the more ingrained the behavioural response becomes. Hypnotherapy can help you do this, deal with your fear and change your responses.
