Fear of Needles Hypnosis Testimonial: … overcoming this phobia has made a genuine positive difference in my life.
I had a life-long phobia about needles–I cried, I passed out, I had anxiety dreams for weeks before any scheduled procedure. After two sessions with Josh, I walked into a CVS by myself and got a flu shot without much more anxiety than if it were part of my weekly errands. Two weeks after that, I got a much-needed cortisone injection, and while I was certainly anxious, the anxiety was in the realm of what most normal people would experience before such a procedure. I had sought therapy for this phobia once before, but it was only slightly helpful, and this was my last-ditch effort to get past it. I went in with a “what do I have to lose” attitude, but admittedly was a little skeptical about how successful it would be. Not anymore! I appreciated how down to earth and pragmatic Josh’s approach was–he explained the neurological basis behind the techniques, and there was nothing mystical or new-age about it. He even offered to accompany me to get my flu shot! I would highly recommend Josh; overcoming this phobia has made a genuine positive difference in my life.
