Fears & Phobias
Fear of Needles
Fear of Spiders
Fear of Heights
Fear of Flying
I recently worked with a client with a needle phobia, they were due to have their covid-19 vaccine, unfortunately, their fear of needles was causing high levels of anxiety.
Their work in the community with vulnerable people meant that the vaccine was a requirement for them, and although work were supportive in their attitude towards my client, protocol meant that the vaccine was a must.
We started by looking back at events throughout life, the first incident occurred during the early years of primary school, which as you can imagine had quite the negative impact and created a fear of the situation happening again.
Throughout life there have been times where needles have been required for both vaccination and medical intervention, such occasions have caused much anxiety in the lead up to the event, often leading to panic attacks.
Post first session the client spoke with another member of the family, it turned out that needle phobias within the family were not restricted to just one member, so with this new information we were able to tackle the problem from another angle, eradicate the irrational thought processes and put in place some new coping mechanisms for the future should they be needed.
I am pleased to say that after the second hypnosis session the client left in a much calmer place and feeling more relaxed about having to have a vaccination - this was a huge breakthrough for the client.
My client has today had the covid vaccine, and using the techniques I taught during our session didn't stress and didn't feel the vaccination either.
