Pain Management

Hypnotherapy for pain management

Chronic pain is pain that persists for several months or years. It is a complex, debilitating and life-changing condition. Conventional medical treatments for chronic pain are often protracted and multi-disciplinary and are not always effective.
Hypnotherapy offers alternative approaches to pain management in a variety of ways. The techniques include various forms of relaxation, distraction techniques, the use of visualisations of the pain itself, together with suggestions and cues for increased control over the pain, and a focus on recovery and wellness.
CD recordings of the sessions are made which are given to you to take home and listen to on a regular basis for reinforcement. Self hypnosis techniques are also taught to enable you to practice and reinforce the strategies at home on an ongoing basis.

HYPNOBIRTHING Hypnosis is a completely natural state of relaxed concentration. Hypnobirthing is a birth education programme that teaches simple but specific self-hypnosis, relaxation and breathing techniques for childbirth.
You will be taught about how the uterus functions naturally during normal childbirth when unencumbered by fear, and about the potential ill-effects of the fear-tension-pain cycle that is often part of the birthing process.
Hypnobirthing doesn't mean that you will be in a trance or asleep. Rather you'll be able to chat, and you'll always be aware of what is happening to you and around you. Most importantly you'll learn how to put yourself more in control of your birth, rather than blindly turning your birth experience over to your doctor or midwife.

"Thank you so much for your hypnotherapeutic help! When I arrived the midwife didn’t believe I was in labour because I was so calm and relaxed……..incredibly short and relatively easy labour. Your help made all the difference to my pregnancy and birth experiences." EB
