Fear Of Needles Ireland

hypnotherapist cork

Hi, my name is Paul Hunter. If you’ve been googling “fear of needles” looking for a solution then you have come to the right page.

I am a Clinical Hypnotherapist, CBT Practitioner and Life Coach. For the past fifteen years I have been helping the people of Cork City and County overcome the fear of needles.

If you need help with fear of needles, then hypnosis and CBT is probably the best choice you can make.

Having a fear of needles can cause some bad outcomes in your life. Here are some examples:

  • Fear of dental needles can cause you to avoid going to the dentist and end up with gum disease or unnecessary tooth loss
  • Having a fear of needles and blood tests can delay diagnosing a serious illness and can put your life at risk.

One of the funnier cases I have dealt with was a GP who had a fear of needles and used to get her practice nurse to handle injections and blood tests because she was afraid of passing out. I suppose it goes to prove that doctors are human beings too.

Are You Afraid Of Needles?

What To Do If You Have A Phobia Of Needles

The most important thing is to communicate that you are afraid. The tell the doctor or nurse to:

  • Prepare the syringe out of your line of sight
  • Talk about other things. Distract. Distract. Distract.
  • Tell the person who will be administering the injection not to talk about it. Many healthcare professionals think that by telling you that it won’t be that bad, that’ll somehow make you feel better. It won’t! It’ll make you feel worse because they are still talking about the needle.

It is really important to take control and tell people what you want and need. If you say nothing, you’ll just feel like a victim who is trapped.

If I thought I was going to have an injection, I would faint. I was so terrified. After just five sessions with you, I am not bothered at all now. Amazing!
