Hypnosis & hypnotherapy for pain management, chronic pain, backache, migraines, IBS, arthritis, in Battle, Hastings, Rye, Bexhill, East Sussex, Kent , UK
I am often asked for help with a variety of pain problems, especially chronic problems, at my practice just outside of Battle, East Sussex.

I have helped a variety of people with these sorts of problems using either psychotherapy, hypnotherapy, or defined psychological and cognitive training.

All of us have experienced some sort of pain or discomfort at one time or another, usually from illness or injury, but thankfully this is usually short-lived and is relieved once we have received any treatment (if necessary) and healed ourselves.

However, there are increasing numbers of people suffering from chronic/persistent pain or repeated bouts of acute pain, most commonly in the lower back, neck, shoulders or buttock area and sometimes the pain is accompanied by sciatica or similar problems in the arms or legs. Then there are those with persistent joint or muscle pains; and there are also many people suffering the pain of occasiona,l or frequent, migraines or tension headaches.

A lot of people I see with pain problems have tried all manner of treatments to obtain some relief from their problem(s) and yet nothing much has worked, so they either live in some level of constant pain or discomfort, or they live in fear of when their next pain episode will be and they tend to limit their life and lifestyle as far as possible to avoid that happening.

John E Sarno M.D. is a professor of Rehabilitation Medicine at the New York University School of Medicine who has, with his team of associates, treated thousands of people suffering from chronic or recurring acute pain problems over the past 35 years with amazing results.

Dr Sarno has called the pain disorder which they had "Tension Myositis Syndrome" or "TMS" for short. TMS is a very painful yet essentially harmless change to either the muscles, nerves, tendons or ligaments (or a combination of them). The muscles involved are usually the postural muscles in the back of the neck, the entire back and the buttocks but nerves, tendons, ligaments and muscles anywhere in the body can also be affected, usually in the limbs and often in the joint areas. Dr Sarno has found that these pains are often caused by unresolved emotional conflicts, stress and the like as opposed to there being actual serious physical 'malfunctions': in other words, the pain is very real but there is no actual injury.

Another thing we know (from studies and research) is that any stress, tension, anxiety or worry makes any pain feel much worse. In particular, migraines and tension headaches (as the name suggests!) are widely believed to be caused by inner tension, anxiety or stress. If this underlying stress or anxiety has been gradually accumulating over a long period, as it does for a lot of people, then this makes everything worse. Recent research also shows a strong correlation between the way a person thinks about pain and the intensity and duration of the discomfort.

This is where I can help using psychotherapy, hypnotherapy, and/or defined psychological and cognitive training. Hypnosis and hypnotherapy, specifically Hypnoanalysis, can be very effective at helping to significantly reduce accumulated stress, anxiety and inner tension levels. Hypnosis can also be used with visualisation and individually tailored Suggestion Therapy to effectively manage pain as an interim measure if a person is unsuitable, for whatever reason, to undergo a course of Hypnoanalysis.

Psychotherapy is also very useful in helping people to resolve underlying emotional conflicts and recusing stress/anxiety levels. Sometimes this may be achieved by going through a couse of psychological/cognitive training. The best way forward for any individual is discussed during a free 30 minute initial consultation.

IMPORTANT, PLEASE READ:

As I am not a medical doctor I am unable to actually diagnose TMS. Also, this page is for information purposes only and is not intended to diagnose or treat pain in any way and is not intended to be a substitute for proper medical advice. It is essential therefore that ALL pain syndromes/problems are properly medically investigated to rule out the, albeit rare, possibility that the pain is being caused by a serious underlying disorder. For this reason, everyone who consults me where their primary concern is that of a pain problem must have a referral from their doctor.

Current Economic Climate...

Thank you for visiting my web site to see how I can help you. During difficult economic times, it will be even more important for you to choose the most effective solution for your problems. The therapies I offer are designed to offer effective help in a relatively short period of time. I appreciate that there are many therapists offering apparently similar approaches, however they will most likely be very different....for instance, only licensed Thrive consultants can offer the Thrive Programme. If you choose to consult me for help with your problem, it is very likely that I will be able to help you within 6 to 16 weeks.
In addition, I have maintained my fee for Hypnoanalysis at the same level for at least six years now, as I wish to give people the opportunity to still be able to resolve their problems during difficult financial times. Please call me on 07722783490 to arrange a FREE 30 minute initial consultation.
