People often think of pain as a purely physical sensation. However, the pain has biological, psychological and emotional factors. Furthermore, chronic pain can cause feelings such as anger, hopelessness, sadness, and anxiety. To treat pain effectively, you must address the physical, emotional and psychological aspects.
Medical treatments, including medication, surgery, rehabilitation and physical therapy, may help treat chronic pain, but psychological treatments are also an important part of pain management. Understanding and managing the thoughts, emotions and behaviours that accompany the discomfort can help you cope more effectively with your pain, and can reduce the intensity of your pain. Studies have found that psychotherapy can be fundamental to a patient’s pain relief, as psychological treatments for pain can alter how the brain processes pain sensations.

Our approach to your pain management
Hypnotherapy has been used by many to manage numerous instances of pain, including irritable bowel syndrome, sciatica, spinal stenosis, burns, joint pain, neck pain and a variety of other injuries and illnesses. The premise of hypnotherapy is to change the way individuals perceive pain messages to reduce the intensity of what they are feeling. We use CBT based on hypnotherapy allows you to feel safe and confident in meeting that challenge in a way that is most effective for you as an individual.
CBT aims to help identify the origins of, and change unhealthy thinking patterns (automatic or habitual), feelings, and behaviours, by uncovering their origins which are often developed at a very young age. CBT encompasses many therapeutic approaches, techniques and systems.
