If you are one of the 28 million people in the UK suffering from chronic pain, you are clearly not alone. Pain is a signal that something needs medical attention and should always be investigated by a medical professional. However, our psychological attitudes, beliefs, expectations and general well-being can have a direct effect on how we feel.
Depression, anxiety, boredom and relaxation all influence the intensity of physical soreness because of the way the mind and body influence one another. Hypnotherapy can be used to influence both psychologic references to the discomfort and physical experience of it. If fact, The National Council for Hypnotherapy says hypnotherapy can be ‘highly effective in dealing with pain management’ and people often undergo surgery and dental work using hypnosis as the anaesthetic.
Making An Appointment
Before you make an appointment to visit me for pain management, please ensure that your discomfort has been fully investigated by your GP to clarify that any underlying cause is being resolved.
When you come to see me for pain management hypnotherapy there is an added bonus that the progressive relaxation and distress techniques I teach you can then be used as self-hypnosis so you can leave the hypnotherapy session with a tool to help you manage your distress every day.
