Pain Relief and Management
"To have great pain is to have certainty, to hear that another person has pain, is to have doubt". Elaine Scarry.
Pain, particularly long-term pain can be so destructive and can hugely interrupt daily life. It can often feel as though one were drowning and are desperate for a lifeline. Hypnotherapy can help, whilst it may not be a cure, could certainly offer some relief. The relaxed state alone may enable your body's own pain relief hormones to be produced, not to mention the effect of your mind having a break from the constant pain feedback.
You are the expert on your pain, how it impacts you, and how you feel about it. I can offer you non-judgemental treatment, to develop ways to help you manage your pain, by utilising your own previously untapped unconscious resourcefulness. To help you remove the stranglehold that pain can often have, to relocate and magnify your inner power. It really is there, you are so much more powerful than your pain would have you believe!
There are many hypnotherapeutic techniques for dealing with pain, which is great as it means that everyone, with their own pain experience, will not be treated as a homogenised group.
Headaches and migraines are also receptive to hypnotherapy treatment.
I have a longstanding interest in chronic pain, having, many years ago, written a dissertation examining the relationship between chronic pain, anger, and depression. I have a personal awareness of the frustrations that arise from experiencing chronic pain, the feelings of being dismissed or disbelieved by others, not to mention feeling like a problem that cannot be fixed; to "have to learn to live with it". Having had chronic pain personally for over 25 years. I do not claim to know how you feel, but I can certainly empathise; I know how I feel. As someone who has experienced both pain and hypnotherapy, I trust in the process. I can testify it can and does work.
Let's chat about it working for you!
You are not just your pain, you are so much more...
Prior to any hypnotherapeutic intervention, it is important that there is a professional liaison with your GP to ensure that there are no contraindications to treatment, any interventions will be made alongside your existing ongoing treatment plan.
