Fear of Injections
Needle phobia is a very common symptom - figures suggest as many as 1 in 10 people suffer from it. Many people can feel anxious about injections, but if your fear becomes persistent and excessive, it may prevent you from having necessary medical procedures. A phobia of injections causes intense anxiety and may lead to feeling faint, or actually fainting, palpitations and a panic attack.
The good news is that it doesn't matter how long you have had your fear of injections for, or how extreme the phobia is, you can overcome it in just six sessions with The Thrive Programme.
What REALLY causes phobias?
Put simply, it is the sufferer's lack of emotional control when thinking about, or being in the presence of their feared stimulus: the huge amount of stress and anxiety they are creating by the WAY they are thinking about their feared object or event. Most phobias don't make logical sense - most people suffering from a phobia know logically that their response is irrational and unjustified.
For example, a person with a fear of flying may know logically that it is the safest form of transport but still are terrified at the thought of it. How is this possible?
Most people don't look 'internally' at their own particular ways of thinking to try to understand or change their phobic response - and that's where the answer lays. Phobias and fears do not happen 'to us', but we create them with specific cognitive processes. For example, we misuse our imagination to imagine the worst-case scenario which creates and maintains our fear response. If you then choose to avoid the feared stimulus - by telling yourself it's so scary that you can't even face it - this will have the effect of escalating your fear and increasing your sense of powerless in your emotional response to it.

"I am convinced that Thrive is the only way for people like me to beat the phobia. I've booked myself in for my first HPV vaccine (first of three doses!) next Friday and I've barely thought about it. Before Thrive, I wouldn't even have been able to pick up the phone and book myself in for an injection and the thought of a nearly two-week wait for it would just paralyse me! It's such a relief now I don't have to put my life on hold over these things anymore and I don't even consider myself to have a phobia anymore."
You CAN overcome your needle phobia. Here's how...
The Thrive Programme® is a revolutionary and powerful training programme that helps you to truly understand yourself, your beliefs and your thinking styles that are causing your fear of injections. Once you have that insight, it can be very easy to think differently, change old patterns of behaviour and feel back in control of your thinking and emotions.
The Programme doesn't just teach you how to manage or reduce your fears - it equips you with the all the skills and resources you need to feel emotionally in control. Rather than teaching you to extinguish emotional fires, you'll learn how not to set them in the first place!
What is The Thrive Programme?
It is an easy-to-follow yet extremely effective psychological training programme to overcome mental health problems and learn to thrive. You will learn how to significantly improve your thoughts, emotions and beliefs so you can feel back in control and symptom-free.
You will develop robust mental health, high, stable self-esteem and self-confidence and be able to make the most of life whilst knowing you can cope when it gets tough.
How does it work?
Over 6 weekly, one-to-one sessions, I will teach how all you need in order to reach your goals. The sessions can be done either in person in my offices or via video conferencing such as Skype or Zoom.
A completely different approach!
The Thrive Programme® is a totally fresh approach to achieving lasting mental well-being. If you have previously tried other interventions or therapies that have not worked for you (as is the case with most of the clients I see), please be reassured that The Thrive Programme is completely different to any other kind of intervention available for mental well-being. The Programme is unique.....and it works.
