Hypnosis for Pain

Many people think of pain as purely a physical issue which can only be resolved through the use of pain killers however it is far more complex than people imagine. In fact the intensity of pain can be governed by a number of factors and these can include stress and anxiety as well as psychological issues which may not be treated during conventional medical treatments. Hypnosis for Pain relief is in fact a great help when it comes to chronic pain. In other words pain which had lasted longer than the normal period it takes for a problem to heal. It can also be used to shorter term issues such as helping people through minor medical procedures of even birth.

Hypnobirthing is in fact a great example of Hypnosis for pain in action. Over a number of sessions a pregnant woman is taught a number of deep relaxation exercises so that they can reduce their stress and anxiety and dissociate from pain during their babies delivery. In fact this form of pain management has become so widely accepted that the NHS is currently conducting a major study into its effectiveness.

Hypnotherapy for Chronic Pain

We are specialists at working with hypnosis for pain. We generally find that our clients come to us after their doctors or consultants have been unable to fully resolve their problem. Our clients are often on long term pain relief medication and may also be taking anxiety or anti-depression medication. These clients may come to us because they find that their conventional medication is not able to manage their condition fully which means that their quality of life is being impacted. We use Hypnosis for pain to address the psychological element involved in pain and where possible help to make the pain more manageable through the use of hypnotherapy.

Working with pain management is a highly specialised area of hypnosis. Many hypnotists may deal with theoretical pain in Hypnobirthing classes but very few practitioners work with clients actively in pain. In order to get substantial experience in pain management I actively worked with clients at a cancer charity weekly for two years.

Before commencing any hypnosis for pain management a thorough assessment will be taken during your first session. In particular I like all my clients to have been seen by a qualified medical practitioner before booking an appointment. This is so we get a diagnosis and rule out any other major physical ailments. Once this has been established I work with clients for:

  • Fibromyalgia pain
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Migraines and Tension/Stress Headaches
  • Back Pain
  • Cancer Pain
  • Phantom Limb Pain
  • Post-operative pain
  • All forms of Arthritis

All my clients will be taught self hypnosis during the sessions so that they are able to practice the techniques at home.
