Find out how our iCBT interactive module for needle phobia can help you when getting a jab

We’ve created a free interactive needle phobia iCBT module for those who may avoid vaccinations due to a fear of needles, or fear fainting when getting vaccinations

As part of the interactive module, you will use the applied tension (AT) technique, which can raise blood pressure and make it less likely that you’ll faint during a jab. Patients can learn this skill to combat fainting, through tensing and releasing their muscles repeatedly.

The iCBT interactive module can be carried out independently and is free of charge on the app once downloaded. A further in-depth iCBT self-help programme is also available to patients who have had an appointment with a psychologist at Mindler.
