Emotional and chronic Pain management

Problem

Pain is felt in the brain
We all live with pain
Pain is our alarm system

8-10 million in UK, resulting in 2008 million days off work per year or impacting quality of life.

Physical pain is a feeling that lets your brain know something is wrong with your body. It sends a warning message which can be felt as discomfort, tingling, burning, throbbing, stabbing, soreness, aching or sometimes agony. Sometimes habits are created by being in pain – moods, inactivity, comfort eating and panic attacks.

Chronic pain – is when the original problem is solved but the neurology has not been turned off, therefore the pain outlives its usefulness. Pain signals continue to be generated in the injured area long after it has healed which results in permanent pain processing changes in the brain and spinal cord giving rise to chronic pain. Imagine the brain is amplifying the pain!

By breaking down the communication and the amplified music, pain can be reduced or eliminated, the brain can relearn the tune.

Emotional pain
We can feel physical pain from traumatic events. The pain was created in the brain and is a ‘brain problem.’

Pain can lead to mental stress, weakening the immune system and slowing down the healing process.

You may feel fatigued and may affect our ability to work or socialise and experience depression and mood swings.

Emotional pain can be felt with feelings of loss, guilt, rejection, loneliness and can lead to feelings of anxiety and stress.

How therapy works for pain management

  • It changes the way the client responds to the pain signal, and practicing meditation creates a positive internal focus than changes negative beliefs
  • In some cases, it can stimulate the brains analgesic response
  • Remove emotion connected to event and release the pain
  • Activate ‘reserve’ neural pathway to enable self-healing
  • Release outdated protection patterns in your brain
  • Increase your motivation to change and eliminate limiting beliefs
What therapies can help you/solutions

The number of sessions required to treat emotional and chronic pain can be between three and 12, depending on the presenting issue.

Typically, with most presenting issues I work with people for three to six sessions.

Solutions for emotional and chronic pain may involve

  • Brain Working Recursive Therapy (BWRT®) a therapy that is effective in working with anxiety and stress, an alternative to Hypnosis.
  • BroadBand for the Brain® allows us to actually choose to access that ‘spare’ energy and resource that is there for the taking – we can work below the level of even the subconscious, using hypnosis, to psychotherapeutically reprogramme the Autonomic Nervous System.
  • Hypnotherapy, can change the way the client responds to the pain signal, and practicing meditation creates a positive internal focus than changes negative beliefs. In some cases, it can stimulate the brains analgesic response
  • Hypno-analysis is a great therapy for resolving a subconscious issue that is creating a psychological or emotional block. It can release repressed events that have caused further effects throughout other parts of your life. It can help resolve multiple problems simultaneously on a deep and long lasting level.
  • Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is like a form of psychological acupressure. It involves tapping different areas of your face and body while talking about traumatic experiences or verbalising your goals to simultaneously alter your brain, energy system and body.
