Overcome Your Fear Of Needles

And Feel Calm, Relaxed & Confident From Now On

Over the last 12 years we have helped hundreds of clients overcome their needle phobias quickly, easily & comfortably.

Most of our clients arrive with an acute sense of anxiety, a genuine fear of needles and injections that has become a source of significant stress in their lives, but after just one or two sessions, they go on to undertake medical interventions involving needles feeling calm, relaxed, and confident.

Below we have provided a little more of the science involved, but the reason why we’re successful at helping clients to overcome their needle phobias is because we work across both the conscious and unconscious parts of the mind.

Through Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapy and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), we work with a clients unconscious mind, or more specifically their belief system, their memory and their imagination.

Through the principles of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy we also work at a rational and logical level and the combination of the two can be very powerful indeed.

Add a little wisdom created out of 35 years combined experience and we are confident we can help you ensure that your old unwanted needle phobia that has had so much control over you, can easily comfortably becomes a thing of the past.

For most clients we would look to see them once or twice. Appointments last up to 2 hours and cost £200 per hour. 

If you would like in help overcoming your fear or phobias, call now on 020 7485 5745 or simply fill out the enquiry form below and we’ll call you for a free of change, confidential consultation.

What Our Clients Have To Say

Overcoming Fear Can Be Easy

So Why Not Do Something About It Now

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 recognise that it is invariably the result of some traumatic medically related childhood experience.

Either way, 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. So why not get some help and overcome this fear now.

By way of background, a phobia is an excessive and irrational fear where one experiences a deep sense of anxiety, panic or dread when encountering the source of the fear. 

Unlike more general anxiety disorders, a phobia is usually connected to something specific, like an object, an animal, an activity or even a location. 

When a person experiences a very traumatic event, the sympathetic nervous system takes the body into survival mode, otherwise known as the fight or flight response. 

By releasing adrenalin, increasing heart and breathing rates, increasing blood supply to the muscles, enhancing reflexes, and dilating the pupils, all of which happens unconsciously, the mind and the body prepare to either run away from or to engage the perceived source of the danger. 

At the same time, a highly emotional memory of the event can become permanently lodged in the amygdala, which is part of our Limbic System –  the brains emotional hub. 

The brain holds on to this memory as it believes that this is important to survival ongoing, hence whenever you encounter a situation or object that is anything like the original trauma, the mind and body responds as if in a survival situation and goes into fight and flight mode. 

This is the basis of any phobia: a fear response attached to something resembling that that was present during the original trauma. 

For some people, desensitisation therapy can be a very effective way to overcome their phobia. This involves being gradually and repeatedly exposed to the source of their fear. 

For many however, this approach is simply too intense and this is why a combination of Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapy, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) together with some Cognitive Behavioural Therapy can be the perfect solution. 

By addressing the underlying cause of your phobia we can help ensure that you finally free and liberated of that old outdated and unwanted fear. 

So if you would like some help overcoming your phobia, call The Therapy Lounge now on 020 7485 5745 or complete the Quick Enquiry Form below.
