'A major new review suggests that around 28 million adults in the UK are affected by some type of chronic pain. The researchers used data from 19 studies that included almost 140,000 adults. They extrapolated the results to come up with the estimate that around 43% of people in the UK experience chronic pain.’*
Living with chronic, long-term pain can have a huge impact on how you live your life. It can hinder your concentration and focus, restrict your movement and generally disrupt whatever it is you want to do. Even low levels of pain can affect the way you function on a day-to-day basis. Being in long term pain may also greatly influence your emotional system causing symptoms of stress, anxiety, negativity, sleep issues and even depression; this may then intensify the pain and could throw you into a downward spiral.
How can hypnotherapy help?
Through a personalised course of sessions with Rebecca at RD Hypnotherapy it is possible to transform your experience of the pain.^ The number of sessions depends on the severity of your problem, your stress and anxiety levels and your current mindset – all of which will be discussed at your free consultation. During your hypnotherapy sessions, Rebecca will teach you a range of techniques to help to control your ability to both cope with your situation and influence the level of your pain. Rebecca is also able to produce a personal hypnotic recording (MP3 or CD) for you to use at home to supplement your course of therapy.
IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) sufferers may also achieve relief from many of their symptoms through a course of hypnotherapy sessions.
