Do you suffer from chronic pain?
Does it feel like you've tried everything and you can't seem to escape? Clinical Hypnosis and Strategic Psychotherapy - along with your existing treatments can help.
You've tried the conventional methods - physio, chiro and pain medication, yet you still don't feel like you're getting better.
Although our approach should never be the first and only place you turn, it can work to complement your existing treatment plan.
How? We break down the issue into the sum of its parts. You might find it hard to imagine a pain-free future, be over-focussing on the point of pain, or unable to sleep because of your pain. We'll look at all the issues separately and teach you how to switch focus.
So what can I expect?
Strategic Psychotherapy is all about empowering you to learn skills you didn't know you had. We help you utilise what you've already learned and apply them in your problem space.
It's not a magic trick and it takes effort, but you'll be rewarded by becoming the best version of you.
Is Hypnosis & Strategic Psychotherapy right for me?
When it comes to pain management, Hypnosis and Strategic Psychotherapy should not be your first consideration. Before seeing us, you should always discuss your options with both your GP and pain management specialists - and get their approval first.
Once you've got the green light, and if you're ready for a change, willing to commit to the work and make the choice to take control from today, our road might be the one you need to succeed.
Get out of the cycle
If you're suffering chronic pain, you're likely suffering with anxiety as well.
Couple that with feeling debilitated, bouts of depression, helplessness ("nothing I try works"), feeling consumed by the pain and/or not being able to see a bright future, it's no wonder it can seem like you'll never feel better again.
The Strategic Psychotherapy approach includes breaking down the problem into smaller, more manageable tasks - that way you won't feel so overwhelmed, and you'll leave our sessions with a "you've got this" attitude.
