Having a needle phobia or a fear of getting your blood taken is challenging at the best of times. In 2021 though, it can seem impossible to be able to get through life without having to confront your worst fears. Fear of receiving the vaccine shot is an anxiety that lots of people are experiencing right now, even without an underlying fear of needles, so it’s understandable that your own anxieties are through the roof and it feels as though fear is taking over your life. But don’t worry, we’re on hand to help, and one way we can help is through hypnosis.
Just like all of our hypnotherapy treatments, hypnosis for needle phobias involves accessing the part of your mind that few of us frequent when life is busy and stress is high. That’s because the only way to access this part of your unconscious mind is through deep relaxation, something that might feel a little difficult for you right now.
But don’t worry, teaching you to relax effectively is part of our job here at St. Petersburg Hypnosis Center LLC. We have a range of techniques available that can take even the most anxious of minds and calm it to the point of deep relaxation. At this point, our job is simple enough.
During deep relaxation, you become susceptible to new ideas and different ways of thinking. Your old negative thought patterns about needles, blood tests, and vaccines can be replaced with positive affirmations about the positive side of needles. Rather than thinking ‘I hate needles, they’ve always scared me’ we can replace that harmful, negative thought with a helpful, positive one. Instead, think ‘I love needles, they’ve always kept me safe’.
It’s difficult to change your thought patterns alone, but hypnosis is a really effective way of doing this in a safe space with your hypnotherapist guiding you through the process every step of the way.
That’s the primary appeal of hypnosis over other methods of dealing with your needle phobia and fear of needles! It will apply to every fear surrounding needles. Rather than exposing yourself to the scary situations to overcome them (something that would mean you had to physically experience every area that your fear of needles may apply e.g. having your blood taken or having a vaccine shot), we concentrate on changing your thought patterns.
It was Norman Vincent Peale that said “Change your thoughts and you change your world” and although he was referring to his work on positive thinking, the same rules apply to hypnosis. By changing your thoughts over a few sessions with a hypnotherapist, you really can change your world. That’s because together we’ll be dealing with the root cause of your problems: your mind, not the problems themselves: fear of blood tests, etc. By digging deep and changing the way you think about needles, you will be able to do all the things you thought were impossible, without any of the fear you’ve come to dread.
Other than the fact that you’ll now be able to eliminate your fear of needles and live a much more positive life, there are plenty of other benefits! Just think about it. How many times have you skipped a blood test you really ought to have gone to? How many times have you thought about getting a vaccine shot and then pulled out? The detrimental effects this could have on your health is worrying, so not only will you be benefiting your emotional, mental, and spiritual health, you’ll be benefiting your physical health too.
Hypnotherapy for your fear of needles really could be wonderful for you, so if you’re interested in working with us here at St. Petersburg Hypnosis Center LLC to help deal with your needle phobia, then read our last section below for all the information you need.

*I’m having great success. Came with the idea of being motivated. After 2 sessions I haven’t had any potato chips, and cut back on saltines. Those were biggies for me. Went to our favorite restaurant and ordered water. That’s major. I’m more self confident and very proud of myself. And close to being motivated to exercise.
*I went to Tammy to get relief from a life-long terror of bridges. After just two sessions, I was less anxious when crossing bridges. After the third session, I was able to ride across the Skyway bridge (which previously had put me in a huddle on the floor of the car) and even look out at the water without being afraid. Thank you, Tammy!
*After two stop smoking treatments I feel great! More relaxed in general than I have felt in some time. Tammy is so fantastic! She’s funny, inviting, engaging… Most of all supportive and comforting. I’m terribly excited for my last appointment tomorrow and looking forward to a smoke free lunch life! Thank you so much Tammy!
*Was having trouble staying focused and also the stress levels that I experienced were becoming overwhelming. Thanks to a session with Tammy, these problems are starting to abate. She has given me techniques to continue fighting these two problems. Whatever problems you might be experiencing, Tammy can help you overcome them. TAMMY IS THE GREATEST!!!
*I had an excellent experience. Tammy is professional, kind and full of positive energy. I highly recommend her you want to quit smoking.
I went to see Tammy in pure desperation in order to stop smoking. I had tried everything. I was apprehensive after my first session as I continued to smoke. After my 3rd session with Tammy, I am now a permanent non-smoker! This is my 23rd day! Tammy, you have changed my life forever! My family and I are so thankful! I have bought a treadmill with the money I am saving on the poison!!! You have changed my life!
*I needed to see Tammy to control my stress and for weight loss. I had gained a lot in the past year. After talking with her at the consultation, she had already given me “homework” to help with the session I schedule for a week later. The actual session was VERY pleasant. I felt wonderful after I left. I noticed changes the next day. I was not eating as much and felt a sense of well being. I will definitely go back to her!
