ne..pas always brackets the first conjugated verb. Any potential object to the verb comes after it. Therefore it is:
Je n'ai pas besoin de cela. -- I don't need that.
-- Chris (not a native speaker).
It should be je n'ai pas besoin de.... We only wrap/sandwich the verb for a negative sentence. Hope this helps Catherine..
