You are not born with a phobia – it is a learned response. A response that you have simply programmed into your mind, when confronted by the phobic stimulus and sometimes, even the anticipation or thought of the situation is enough to provoke the response, the person then begins to experience the classic symptoms of panic attacks.
10% of the UK population experience a phobia of needles. Perhaps you have to, or want to give blood or require an inoculation to travel abroad or you need an operation, but the fear is just too much which in turn leads to the avoidance of needles or even necessary medical or dental treatment.
Maybe just the very thought of having or needing an injection causes you to panic and you become light headed or even faint? The good news is hypnosis can help you overcome your needle phobia by removing the subconscious response that you have, as it is a learned response and with the aid of hypnotherapy, you can learn how to re-programme your feelings so you feel comfortable around needles.
Each and everyone of us as an individual has the resources inside us to change.
Whatever the cause of your fear, it’s a response which your subconscious mind has learned either from your own experience or from other people’s experience and the more you let your fear continue to prevent you from having injections, the more these negative messages are reinforced so that they become part of your automatic response.
Hypnotherapy can really help individuals suffering from a fear of needles. Using hypnotherapy to discover the root cause of the fear can then enable the issue to be dealt with by communicating with the subconscious mind to re-evaluate thinking patterns and behaviour. Hypnotherapy can also help an individual to relax and access a calm, focused state of mind to help them control their fear.
