I can help you practice successful pain management with the power of hypnosis
Living with current pain can be very debilitating. It can affect all areas of your life, interfering with your ability to concentrate and you may feel as though you no longer get as much pleasure out of life because you are unable to do some of the things you used to do. Chronic pain is a source of stress and you may feel unhappy, disappointed, anxious, angry, trapped and helpless.
The way in which pain affects your emotions depends on the way you are thinking about it. If you are thinking negatively about your pain yourself and your situation, then you are more likely to experience the emotions described. Stress and anxiety can exacerbate pain and cause muscle tension. If you are thinking more positively about your life, you will be more relaxed about life, you won’t feel as stressed and you will feel better about yourself. Easier said than done though when the pain can be overwhelming
When seeing a therapist for chronic pain, it is advisable that the pain is checked out by a GP first for a formal diagnosis.
