Freedom is around the corner


A fear of needles, injections, or having blood draw has kept  many of us from receiving the medical care we need.  With the rollout of the COVID 19 vaccine, this problem turns from being a personal problem to a societal issue.  Herd immunity and the safety of those around us mean that everyone needs to find a solution to their issues with needles.  IHateNeedles.info hopes to be a resource for those people.

If you have vaccine shot, other inoculation or are scheduled to ‘give blood’ you may have already began to focus on what could go wrong.  It’s a normal to prepare for the worst but if you have a history with anxiety or panic this kind of preparation can be counterproductive.  This audio program will help you create a mental model for having a more positive experience.  At the same time it will help you access new resources for feeling in control and confident.

 This audio program will be most effective if it’s used for at least 12 days prior to your appointment. The best times to listen are first thing in the morning AND right before bed time.

Mental Espresso seems to have unlocked the filmy door that was keeping me from becoming active in trying to solve my conundrum. I' ve taken positive steps! Yesterday I didn't think about my conundrum at all, but this morning I was up at 5:30, unable to think of anything but getting going on my solution, writing down a list of steps, imagining the results of my work, filled with ideas.

“When I woke up this morning and thought about our session, I found my anxiety dissipate immediately. I am close to tears because for the first time in a long time I see a light at the end of the tunnel. Thank you Peter."

“Peter moved a lot of energy at our first meeting and really helped me transform my self esteem! THANKS!”
