Chronic Pain Management

Unrelieved chronic pain (that is pain persisting for more than 6 months) can cause considerable suffering, physical limitations, and emotional distress. It often persists despite treatment with medication and physical therapies. Hypnosis has proven results in managing pain and has the added advantage of enabling the pain sufferer to feel as though they have regained some control over their lives,

Hypnotherapy in the treatment of chronic pain generally involves a hypnotic induction with suggestions for relaxation and comfort, plus visualisations allowing the client to adjust or change their levels of pain intensity. During hypnosis, clients are also taught how to change the shape and size of their pain or to move it from one location to another. These techniques are extremely effective for most clients and are able to continue being used outside of the hypnotherapy sessions.

In my experience, most clients experience an immediate reduction in pain severity following hypnotherapy, whereas others can obtain considerable reduction in pain with repeated home practice and hypnotherapy sessions.

Whether the chronic pain is from back problems, migraines, arthritis, nerve damage, neurological conditions, endometriosis or any form of cancer, hypnotherapy is a safe and effective treatment that also allows personal empowerment for the pain sufferer.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

The Federal Health Minister, Greg Hunt, has advised that “ALL allied health businesses nationally can continue working and are encouraged to do”. He has encouraged providers to continue vital face-to-face services where possible.

These are challenging times for everyone, but your personal and relationship issues continue to need assistance. My practice is still open for hypnotherapy and individual or relationship counselling, including Rekindle the Love workshops.

However, face-to-face sessions are available only for local residents, at this time.

If you are sick or have come into contact with the Coronavirus at any point, and/or if you have recently been overseas, please stay at home and contact me on 0407 009 050 to reschedule your appointment.

The safety of my clients and wider community is of utmost importance to me, and my home-based clinic is fully compliant with the new social distancing rules and hygiene practices. I have ensured that appointments are staggered so that you and your partner, where appropriate, are the only clients visiting my practice, at any one time.

Video sessions are available for both individuals and couples, I am currently preparing a program for couples to complete a Rekindle the Love workshop, online.

Please contact me for more information.

Coronavirus and social isolation will add to existing pressure points on relationships, so don’t let your marriage become a coronavirus casualty.

I thank you for your continued support in these uncertain times and know that together we will get through this.
