Can I ever be Pain Free?
Pain can be hugely debilitating and prolonged pain can lead to isolation and depression. If it is painful to stand or walk, we think twice about leaving the house and activities become limited to necessities such as food shopping or paying bills. Now that these things can be done online, we may be even less likely to go out at all as the fear of the pain holds us back.
When we are experiencing pain, we can feel that we are stuck. This could be because we feel that we are not getting anywhere with medication, or perhaps we have spoken to our Dr but we don't like taking medication.
It is useful to unpick the complexities of how and why the body feels pain and then we can teach the mind and body to let go of unnecessary pain.
By looking at the whole of the client hypnosis doesn't simply target the one area of the body that is experiencing the pain but what might be behind the pain, whether that's physical or emotional pain brought on by prolonged anxiety.
By constantly checking back on how someone is feeling, we can monitor what is working for them and what is not, and because no two people are the same, each session should be adapted to create a completely unique experience for each person.
If the pain is a part of an on going illness and Dr's have said that it will always be a part of that individuals life, it could simply be about assisting that person to find coping strategies so that the pain is at a manageable level.
The important thing to realise is that there ARE alternatives and that pain CAN be managed. Sometimes all someone needs hope and the idea that they can regain control of life.
