Hypnotherapy to cure a Needle Phobia

Hypnotherapy to cure a Needle Phobia –
Fear of Needles or Trypanophobia

Using hypnosis in the form of hypnotherapy and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) it is possible to cure a needle phobia, fear of needles or fear or phobia of injections.

Most people who come to me to address a needle phobia are actually suffering from Trypanophobia. Trypanophobia is not, strictly speaking a needle phobia but a fear of injections; it relates specifically to medical procedures. There are other similar phobias that include fear of hypodermic needles within their definition but do not cover the medical aspect of the actual injection.

A Difficult Phobia if You Want to Stay Fit and Healthy

A needle phobia is not one that can be avoided that easily. Ones needle phobia or injection phobia will cause problems if one has a baby, an operation, an inoculation such as when one desires to visit certain countries, has an illness investigated or visits the dentist for dental treatment.

Needle Phobia Symptoms

The symptoms of injection or needle phobia may be intense fear or panic that can cause the sufferer to run away or a reaction that makes the sufferer faint or “pass out”. The fear may be due to the expectation of pain, the expectation that something bad is going to be done to ones body or a fear that one is gong to pass out. A needle phobia can endanger the sufferer’s health, comfort and well being by making them avoid or refuse essential medical or dental treatment.

How Do You Get a Needle Phobia?

A needle phobia or phobia of injections generally has its origins in some traumatic experience involving actual mental or physical pain, physical injury or fear of physical injury. The incident does not have to involve needles or sharp objects but often it does. It is not uncommon for a needle phobic to describe incidents in their childhood where they were physically restrained while having an injection.  A needle phobia can also develop after seeing another person’s fear.

Help for your Needle Phobia from Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy and NLP are used to help the sufferer to develop a new safer perspective that does not hold the fear that was programmed in when the needle phobia was initiated. Using hypnosis your needle phobia, fear of needles or injections can be overcome.
