Phobia of needles???
Please refer me to a hypnotherapist in the Edenvale area. I need to overcome my terrible fear of needles which is stopping me from doing basic things like going to the dentist even though I desperately need work done on my teeth, or even going for a simple blood test.

No, I won't. The only effective treatment for this condition ( which is very easy to treat successfully) is proper Behaviour therapy given by a properly qualified and trained psychologist, NOT hypnotherapy from someone who fancies that they are a hypnotist. it is easily and pleasantly treated ( using no needles !) and after a few sessions, you won't mind any needles that might be needed.
