Recently I went to give blood for the second time in Ely - something everyone I've spoken to agrees is a useful and valuable thing to do. So what stops so many people actually taking an hour out and giving blood? 

Many people I've spoken to tell me they have a fear of needles or blood or are worried about fainting afterwards. And of course, needles, blood and the possibility of fainting are certainly part of the process! In fact, while I was there, one person did pass out despite being a regular blood donor, and another person felt faint and had to rest for a while.

I remember the first time I gave blood - afterwards I went a bit dizzy and had to sit down for a while. But it soon passed, and just like the lady who did faint, I was soon up and on my way again feeling fine.

Overcome Fear of Needles and Blood

Knowing what an important, life saving thing giving blood is, I love helping people to end their fear and phobia around needles, blood or more generally around all things medical.

In fact, several of my former clients have gone on to give blood themsleves - something they never thought they would ever be able to do.

And you may also have watched the video where Steve Miller talks about how I helped him end his life long blood and needle phobia (if you haven't seen it have a look here: hypnotherapy video testimonials).

So if you need help to overcome your blood or needle phobia then get in touch and let's meet for a chat about how we can make it happen.
