Hypnotherapy audio for medical procedure?

I have a friend who is going in for a medical procedure (gynaecology related). She's going to get a local anaesthetic but she is very anxious about the whole thing (even about getting the local)

I remember when I had DD I had great success with the natal hypnotherapy CDs and I feel like she would benefit from feeling prepared and like she has a strategy. Has anyone used anything similar for general surgery or indeed any moments of particular stress that they would recommend?

Can I recommend some Mindfulness apps to listen to? Jon Kabat Zinn is huge in the world of health related Mindfulness and is extremely calming. You could listen to this in the wee small hours and hopefully be calmed back to sleep. Check out YouTube for freebies.
