In brief: Find a mentor
Regular practice will help.
Find a good hynotherapist or biofeedback teacher to help. Also the homeopathic remedy argentum nitricum (preferably in a 200 (pyrethins and piperonyl butoxide) c potency...(your health food store can order it for you) will also help with anxiety in general and needle phobia in particular.

In brief: CBT
Seek a cognitive-behavioral therapist who specializes in phobias.
One method they use is systematic desensitization which slowly and incrementally brings the person closer and closer to the thing they are afraid of in slow, graduated steps that help make the anxiety more tolerable.
