Hypnotherapy for Chronic Pain and Health Conditions

Whilst clinical hypnotherapy can be used to help with symptoms of pain and some health conditions, it is important to understand that hypnotherapy is not a substitute for medical care. In some instances, written permission is required from a medical practitioner before hypnotherapy can take place. 

Hypnotherapy for pain and health conditions is used to alleviate the symptoms rather than cure. It may be used in consultation or collaboration with a medical professional.

Most people tend to underestimate the power the subconscious mind has over the body. Hypnosis works with your subconscious mind to achieve positive change, helping wound healing, immune function, blood pressure and heart function.

There are many common conditions which may be helped by clinical hypnotherapy, including

  • Chronic, diagnosed pain
  • IBS
  • Psoriasis or Eczema
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Allergies
  • Migraines
  • Symptoms associated with cancer treatment
  • Preparation for medical, surgical or dental procedures.

Often physical conditions are exacerbated by stress or anxiety. Hypnosis can help you identify these triggers and stop them happening. It has no side effects and can improve emotional and mental wellbeing.

Being taught self-hypnosis techniques can also help you manage the symptoms of a diagnosed condition, both physically and emotionally.  

So what happens in hypnotherapy for chronic pain or health condition?

Firstly, you and I work together to explore the reasons for seeking hypnotherapy. Then, if necessary, I will contact your GP or another health professional involved in your care. Once I have the necessary permission or input from them, we start to work towards relieving your symptoms.  The sessions are calm, non-invasive, boost your resilience and give you tools to break free from symptoms so you can enjoy your life.
