    Are you worried about having an injection for the Coronavirus Vaccine? Perhaps a fear of needles has been something you have been able to live with for a long time. Now, though you need to have an injection and are looking for a way to make it easier.

    As the Covid mass vaccination programme rolls out throughout the UK more and more people are breathing a sigh of relief. The injection of Coronavirus vaccine is helping people to see that even if this is not the end, it’s at least the beginning of the end.

    Millions of people have already had their injections and seeing the pictures on TV of people being vaccinated against Covid it is easy to think that if you have a fear of needles you are alone.

    So many people aren’t worried about the safety of the vaccine, after all it has been fully tested and approved, they’re frightened of the needle it comes in. It may have been easy to live for years without any problems from this, especially if you declined the yearly flu vaccine, but right now things are different and it is in the interests of you, your family and the whole world to get that injection of Covid Vaccine when you are offered the chance.

    This short video explains all about fears and phobias and the good news about how you can let them go forever....

    Are Adults or Children the most scared of needles? and How does it happen?

    Being scared of injections and needles is fairly common in children, and generally with more experience of how they benefit us, this slowly decreases with age.

    It’s generally thought that about 10 per cent of people have some level of anxiety about getting a blood test or receiving an injection. Even so most people carry on through this and they have that needle in their arm to help them overcome whatever the injection is designed to do.

    What do you call a fear of needles and injections?

    However for many this fear can be much worse. It is known as Trypanophobia, or a severe phobia of injections. When things are this bad they can have a very debilitating impact on the sufferers’ life.

    Sometimes people may be so fearful of needles that they faint, which further increases their fear of future events. There are some people who have a medical condition which can cause this, but that doesn’t affect so many people. That fainting can come from the fear and the physical reaction it causes.

    We tend to find that often one bad experience colours our feelings around needles and how we react to injections. Often this is a single bad experience in childhood, perhaps during routine vaccinations or a dental appointment. If the dentist said to you: "just a little scratch" you are likely to be more relaxed than if they said: "this is going to hurt!"

    Can our parents teach us a fear of injections?

    Yes! Often and without even realising it the reaction of your parents if something didn’t go as planned can cause you to be the one with the fear.  This can mean a lack of sleep through worry even days before you are due to have an injection. As children we can pick up on worries that our parents have and they do not always even realise how much we see and hear.

    I often see people who now have their own children and want to make sure that they do not pass on their own fear to their children in the future.

    Whatever your reasons, it is never too late to finally deal with your fear of injections. The issues surrounding Covid and how the Coronavirus has affected the entire world have only brought this into sharper focus for everyone.

    If you would like to let go of your fear of injections then simply drop me a line and I can tell you more about how I can help you to relax and let go of that feeling on a permanent basis.

    Can I have Hypnosis for needle fears online?

    Yes of course. I have been working online with Skype for nearly ten years so I have lots of experience in helping people with fears and phobias to overcome them. Whilst Zoom therapy is now becoming more and more known, you can rest assured that this isn’t something I only started during the covid pandemic.

    Remember, any fear is something that we learn. If you learn it you can unlearn it!

  2. Online Therapy due to Covid – How does Coronavirus affect having therapy sessions?

    Online Therapy due to Covid – How does Coronavirus affect having therapy sessions?

    As time ticks on and more and more people start to become aware of how the lockdowns and restrictions due to covid are affecting their mental health, many people are thinking about how to access help during this time. It could be the first time you have ever searched online for help with your own mental health, or perhaps you are looking for help for a family member or friend.

    How does Online Skype Hypnosis work

    The rules which sometimes have allowed people to have one to one therapy and counselling sessions in person have changed, but sometimes even when things are safe, it may not feel right for you to see someone in person. It could perhaps add to the stress and anxiety of the moment.

    If you are dealing with stress and anxiety then using online therapy is a great way to be able to share your worries and learn some ways to deal with them.

    I first started using Skype for online Hypnotherapy sessions nearly ten years ago so it isn’t something new to me. Of course the difference now is that rather than work with people around the world some of the people I can help would be the ones that would come and see me in person. Over the years I have worked with people in the USA, Australia, all across Europe and Asia and South Africa, but now I can help everyone.

    How does online hypnosis work?

    One of the things that I have found over the years is that making people recordings of hypnosis that we do is a great way for people to have something to practice with at home. This way you can benefit from the talking therapy part of what we do when we chat, and also have something to help cement the work we do. Having a recording of your hypnosis session is a huge bonus and working on Skype means that after a Skype hypnotherapy session I will send you a recording made especially for you.

    How about other techniques?

    As a Clinical Hypnotherapist who has been trained in many different techniques and has is now in his second decade of practice I have what you may describe as a toolbox of techniques that can help. This means that as well as using hypnosis I can help you with EFT, EMDR and many other techniques with strange initials too! The names of the techniques are not really important. What is important is that there are many different was to help and just the talking part of things often helps people to see that things can be different and better for you after just the first session. We can talk all about how Meditation online and learning Mindfulness can help you to learn to let go and relax much more than you imagined.
