So where does this fear come from and why is it so intense that it causes sweating, shaking, and in some cases vomiting or even fainting?

Some evolutionary psychologists believe that it is an innate fear that is rooted in ancient times: the needle representing a puncture wound, which often meant infection and death! Other more clinically based psychologists recongise that it invariably results from a traumatic childhood experience.

Either wasy, your fear of needles is like any phobia – a disproportionate fear that has been stored in your subconscious. But unlike any other phobia, if it has you neglecting your health and the benefits of 21st century medicine, you are putting yourself at risk and must seek help now.

At The Therapy Lounge, our therapists use a combination of Advanced Hypnotherapy, NLP and the principles of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to access the parts of the mind where the fear response is stored. By detaching the trigger (the needle) from the emotional response (fear) and re-setting the brain with a realistic response, you will immediately notice that even thinking about needles is easier.
