How Hypnotherapy Helps
Chronic or long term pain can be one of the most demoralising things to deal with. The pain may feel like it is taking over your life; suppressing your appetite, putting you in a distressed state of mind, and stopping you from getting the restful sleep you need at night. The key thing to remember is that pain can be managed the natural way, as well as by over the counter pain killers. By retraining your brain to better cope with the impact of long term pain you’ll be able to rediscover the real you.
Why Can’t I Simply Ignore Pain?
Pain is a real physical sensation, not something you’re imagining. This means that you can’t simply block it out or forget about it no matter how hard you try. What we need to do instead is change the way our brain reacts when the body is experiencing pain, learn to relate it to something else, and begin developing a personal tool kit that we can use whenever we need to.
The Natural Approach
Pain killers and other forms of medication are ok to a point, but it’s completely natural to lose faith in them as you see the initial results fade. As your body becomes used to the medication, or the pain intensifies, the beneficial effects will lessen which only serves to add to your sense of despair in the face of your battle with chronic pain. What we need to do instead is turn our approach to the power of the mind and begin to understand how transporting your mind away to a calmer place can dramatically influence how you perceive pain.
When you’re in pain you can begin to panic or feel despondent. Nothing seems to alleviate your suffering and yet it is still impacting every aspect of your life. By using hypnotherapy to transport your mind away to a calmer place we can change the way you view the situation. This will not only take your mind off the pain, it will allow you to focus on other aspects of life so that your pain is no longer the central hub of your daily life.
In our first session I’ll provide the unconditionally supportive environment that will allow you to open up about your struggles with effective pain management. There are no judgements here; only a listening ear and a willingness to walk your path with you as we develop the tools that you need to effectively manage your pain.
