Are you next for your Covid jab? Celebrity hypnotherapist reveals a 90% surge in calls to tackle needle phobia & reveals his best tips to tackle the problem
The Government’s mass vaccination programme against Covid-19 is continuing at pace.
However, while headlines about the jabs have been dominated by safety concerns, for many it is a fear of needles that is causing anxiety and extreme levels of upset.
The rollout has now moved on to the over-45s age group and those in their 30s are expected to be vaccinated in the coming months.
As it stands, there is no alternative to the needle. All Covid-19 vaccines have to be given via injection.
For many this has proved a turning point in wanting to confront their needle phobia. Hypnotherapist Aaron Surtees said he has seen a staggering 90% surge in calls asking for help to eliminate the problem following the start of the vaccination programme. The majority are young professionals who have had the problem since childhood.
He said: ‘’Before the Government announcement about Covid jabs it was not unusual for a year or a couple of years to pass before I would get a phone call asking for help to tackle needle phobia.
‘’In the last 3 months, since the vaccine rollout started, I have had at least one phone call a week.
‘’It has been an equal mix of males and females and they are in the 30s to 50s age group. A lot of them have had the problem for life but have been forced to confront their fears because of the vaccine.’’READ MORE

As lockdown continues to ease, our days spent indoors in front of a laptop wearing oversized hoodies and comfortable tracksuit bottoms are coming to an end and a return to the office looms.
And with it is the realisation for many that work clothes no longer fit.
It’s little wonder the pandemic has led to the phrase ‘Covid stone’ becoming a part of our lexicon.
A recent Kings College and Ipsos MORI survey provided a snapshot of the impact Coronavirus has had on the nation’s lifestyle habits and emotions.
Of the 2,254 people questioned, 48% found they have put on weight during lockdown, the same percentage report feeling depressed or anxious and 29% said they have been drinking more alcohol.
But is a drastic calorie-controlled diet or exhausting fitness regime really the answer to shifting those pounds?
Hypnotherapist Aaron Surtees believes the answer to weight loss lies in harnessing the power of our minds.READ MORE
