Pain Management

Hypnotherapy has been used for centuries in the alleviation of pain and has been used long before anaesthetic was available.  A great hypnotherapist called Dr Gibson, has performed over 4000 surgeries without the use of any anaesthetic with a range of many different issues.  Some of the best research in support of hypnotherapy has been through pain management because the effects are so visible and instant.

In a study by Faymonville, it was shown when given suggestion for pain relief, certain parts of the brain become dormant.  If you are suffering from any injury then we can help. Hypnotherapy can be used alongside medication to help increase the effectiveness and recovery rate.

Hypnotherapy is so effective with pain management; there are books solely dedicated to the subject.  We can also teach how to develop this skill with self hypnosis, so you can learn and practice how to routinely help yourself.

So what can we help you with?

 

 

How our programmes are delivered

A specific plan is tailored to each person by one of our therapists to help them achieve their goals and to prepare for any issues along the way.

We easily identify any issues by using evidence based procedures to help assess and build a strategic plan for success.  Case formulation (understanding of issues) is a very important part of any successful therapy.  “A problem well defined is a problem halved”.

We focus on three main aspects that are required by any therapist,

  • Bond of trust between therapist and client;
  • Agreement on therapy goals;
  • Agreement on therapy tasks (Bordin, 1979).

The initial session will start with an introduction to dispel any concerns/misconceptions that you have about hypnotherapy.

Relevant questions will be asked so that we can get a better understanding of what your main issue is, and if there are any other contributing stresses.

If there any obstacles that come in the way of you achieving your goals, we will work together to design a flexible plan to prepare for any setbacks so you can stay on track.
