Hypnotherapy for health issues and physical conditions



I'm pleased to have the opportunity to discuss how solution focused hypnotherapy can help you, especially if you're dealing with conditions like Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) or eczema. I understand how challenging and sometimes frustrating it can be to live with these conditions.


Understanding chronic, persistent conditions


  • Persistent pain can feel like a constant, unwelcome presence, draining and limiting. It's not just the physical discomfort; it's the ongoing emotional strain of coping with pain, leading to feelings of frustration, sadness, or hopelessness.


  • Insomnia and sleep disorders disrupt your internal rhythm, resulting in exhaustion and irritability. This can create a vicious cycle of stress and anxiety about sleep, further complicating the issue.


  • Weight concerns often involve frustration and social pressure, leading to feelings of inadequacy or low self-esteem. It can feel like a never-ending struggle with your body image.


  • IBS, with its sensitive digestive system, requires careful management of diet and stress. The unpredictability of symptoms like cramps or bloating can make daily activities and social interactions stressful and sometimes embarrassing.


  • Stress-related skin conditions like eczema or psoriasis add emotional distress, particularly because they are visible. Flare-ups can lead to self-consciousness, creating a cycle where stress exacerbates skin issues, which in turn, causes more stress.


In these conditions, a common theme is the feeling of being out of control of your own body, leading to frustration and demoralisation.


The role of hypnotherapy in managing symptoms


Let me explain how hypnotherapy could play a role in managing your symptoms and enhancing your overall well-being.


Hypnotherapy isn't a cure for physical conditions, but it can be a powerful tool in managing them. With IBS, for example, stress and anxiety are known to make symptoms worse. What I do in our sessions is help you focus on positive outcomes and your desired future, rather than dwelling on the problems. This shift in focus can lead to a more relaxed state of mind, which, surprisingly, can help in reducing some of the physical symptoms of IBS.


Stress is also a trigger for skin conditions like eczema. Through hypnotherapy, I can help you learn to manage these stress triggers better. We'll work on relaxation techniques and coping strategies which can lessen the severity or frequency of eczema flare-ups. It won't make the eczema vanish, but it can make living with it much easier.


Empowering you through hypnotherapy


An important part of my approach is empowering you. I aim to help you build resilience and develop strategies that make dealing with chronic conditions more manageable. For instance, if you have IBS, we'll explore techniques to handle stress better, which can indirectly improve your symptoms.


In our sessions, we might also use guided imagery and suggestions tailored to your specific symptoms or triggers. Imagine, for example, guiding your mind to picture your skin feeling cool and calm, providing relief from discomfort or itching. These visualisation techniques can offer some respite.


I always encourage a holistic approach to health. Hypnotherapy is most effective when it complements your existing medical treatments. It's crucial to keep your healthcare provider in the loop and consult them before starting any new therapy.


A diverse range of treatable conditions


Solution focused hypnotherapy can address a wide range of physical conditions, including alopecia, arthritis, autoimmune conditions, bruxism, children's physical problems, eczema, fertility issues, fibromyalgia, high blood pressure, infertility, insomnia, IBS, labour pain, medical conditions, menopause, migraine, nail biting, pain control, post-surgical discomfort, psoriasis, skin picking, sleep problems, sports performance, sweating, tinnitus, and weight management.


Bear in mind that people respond differently to hypnotherapy. Some find significant relief, while others notice more subtle improvements. It's about finding what combination of treatments and approaches work best for you.


As your hypnotherapist, I'll guide you through this process, offering a space for positive visualisation, relaxation, and empowerment. I understand that taking the first step can be daunting, but I'm here to support you every step of the way.


So, if you're ready for change, or if you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to take a proactive step towards a healthier, happier future by booking a free 30-minute online consultation. This is your opportunity to find out more about how solution focused hypnotherapy can help you and to start your journey towards better mental health and wellbeing.
