Aichmophobia Therapy & Counselling

Aichmophobia is the Fear of Needles, Injections or Sharp Objects.

One of the biggest problems associated with this particular phobia is that sufferers will tend to avoid essential medical or dental healthcare procedures and therefore increase the likelihood of ill health as a result.

It has become a much more common problem since the government of the UK announced that everybody is due to receive the Coronavirus vaccination during 2021 and it is important that aichmophobia does not stand in the way of being vaccinated.

Modern Hypodermic needles are so fine that in almost all cases they can “hardly” be felt, however, if a person is tense and fearful about having an injection they actually increase their experience of pain significantly!

All phobias, regardless of what the feared object or circumstances are, cause Anxiety and Stress for the sufferer.

Whilst the feared object or situation may seem, to other people, to be ridiculous or silly, the person who suffers from the phobia knows only too well that the Anxiety that they experience is real enough.

We completely understand this here at Tranceform psychology and will treat you and your Aichmophobia seriously.

Aichmophobia Symptoms and Signs

The symptoms of Aichmophobia are very similar to other specific phobias and will often include:

Aichmophobia may be the result of negative emotional experiences from the past but it may also be acquired from a parent or caregiver in the form of a learned behvaiour.

Whatever the original cause for the phobia may be, the key to overcoming Aichmophobia is to recognise that it is the perception of Needles that leads to the symptoms and not the trigger situation itself.

By following a course of therapy or counselling and changing the individual meanings attributed to the idea of Needles, Aichmophobia sufferers can almost certainly overcome their phobia and any associated symptoms..

Alternative Therapies for Aichmophobia

In spite of the excellent track record that CBT has for dealing with anxiety-based problems like Aichmophobia, some people find the psycho-educational aspects of cognitive therapies difficult to grapple with.

For these people, we also offer a number of different therapy and counselling approaches including:

Psychodynamic therapy which focuses more on emotional difficulties and relies on the therapeutic relationship to bring about change.

Counselling which is less structured but still provides a safe and non-judgmental environment to discuss issues which is therapeutic in its own right.

Hypnotherapy is an alternative form of therapy that can be applied to a very wide range of problems and is available with Joan.
