Public speaking hypnotherapy – Having a fear of public

Public Speaking Hypnotherapy

Overcome your fear in just one session.

speaking is an issue that I deal with regularly; the thought of getting up in front of a crowd and talking will throw many people into a state of panic. In today’s world many people are utilising email, social media and texting to communicate, which means of course that there’s rarely a necessity to speak in to an audience. Which means that when public speaking situations do arise understandably people feel anxious. For some people this anxiety develops into a phobia – known as glossophobia and this phobia can be easily helped with public speaking hypnotherapy. Public speaking may be avoidable, but for some people it’s not

In this post I will look at how public speaking hypnotherapy can reduce anxiety and glossophobia and is so doing can help you build confidence.

Glossophobia is a form of social anxiety and a social phobia. When someone is speaking publicly, the audience will be paying attention to them and listening to what they have to say. It is thought that Glossophobia comes from a fear of being judged, this can be caused when a large number of people are paying attention to the speaker. This, combined with doubts over their own ability to deliver can feel overwhelming, it is these issues and doubts that public speaking hypnotherapy resolves.The fear of public speaking will be reinforced when the speaker makes mistakes. Even if they only make one very small mistake when speaking, their minds will entirely focus in on this, creating a justification of their fears.

Symptoms of glossophobia in general are:

  • avoiding situations where you may be required to speak in front of a group
  • feelings of panic when asked to speak publicly
  • nausea
  • increased heart rate/palpitations
  • shaking
  • dry mouth

To feel a little anxiety when asked to speak in public is to be expected. If the anxiety overwhelms the speaker however and holds them back from what they want to do in life, they should consider seeking support in the form of public speaking hypnotherapy.I would ask the reader to remember that a fear of public speaking isn’t just about speaking in front of a crowd. Someone with glossophobia may well withdraw from any number of situations, such as asking a stranger for directions, attending job interviews and speaking to shop assistants. It is a phobia that can have severe effects on day-to-day life but is very receptible to change with public speaking hypnotherapy.

How can public speaking hypnotherapy help?

As with all phobias, glossophobia isn’t something that someone can control consciously. People may tell them to ‘relax’, but this rarely does little to control their symptoms. This is because the symptoms their experience originates from the subconscious. Public speaking hypnotherapy works with their unconscious to find out where the origin of their anxiety comes from. In almost all cases I see it comes from misinformation learned from a previous experience. Public speaking hypnotherapy will help to identify this and I will use suggestion techniques to correct any miss learned behaviours.

If a behaviour learned, then it stands that it can be unlearned with the help of public speaking hypnotherapy which will change the meaning or properties of those early experiences, this will then influence the way the subject will feel about certain situations in the present. As well as this reframing, I will also teach my client methods of changing how they feel in the here and now.

Public speaking hypnotherapy – fear and the mind

When a person has the experience of fear, their minds will  work against them. They will experience a rush of automatic, negative thoughts that feed into their sense of self-doubt. Becoming more aware of these thoughts and speaking to themselves with respect and kindness is a great first step to managing your their of public speaking. Fear makes their minds behave in a different way, logic and reason is gone, pit of the window. Their mind does this by distorting their reality and fixating on the negative.This fear and anxiety can cause the speaker  to lose their perspective, thinking their lives will be over if it doesn’t go well.

How public speaking hypnotherapy works

Hypnosis is a state of deep relaxation. When I guide my client into this wonderful enjoyable state, their unconscious becomes more receptive. This means that I can talk with this part of their mind to uncover the origins of the behaviour and influence their thinking patterns. Once established I can use positive suggestion to change the origin of their thoughts. My aim here is to bring about positive thinking and a sense of calm when faced with public speaking, instead of the previous flood of negativity.

The first thing to consider when choosing a hypnotherapist is the practitioner’s qualifications. Look for a degree qualified mental health care professional — such as a psychologist, psychotherapist, psychiatric nurse practitioner, counsellor, social worker, or medical doctor — who is also a hypnotherapist. Unfortunately, there are many therapists advertising who have nothing more than an online qualification, they will usually claim to have either a diploma or certificate in Hypnotherapy, these are not recognised qualifications. You can also ask if they’re affiliated with any professional associations, such as the International Hypnotherapy Association.

 

If for example, a hypnotist uncovers trauma while doing hypnotherapy, they need to know how to treat trauma. In other words, having the education and training to diagnose and treat mental health conditions — which comes from being a degree qualified Psychologist — is a key component in the success of hypnotherapy and of course your safety.

    Hypnosis facts – Hypnotherapy has been used for more than 100 years to help with many issues including smoking weight, stress, depression, phobias, low self-esteem and so much more.  Read these hypnosis facts before you try it.

    Hypnosis facts – So, what is hypnotherapy?

    Hypnotherapy is a form of therapy used to undo

    Hypnosis facts

    All issues helped in just one session

    negative programming in the subconscious mind. Whilst under hypnosis, I will put my clients mind and body into a heightened state of relaxation, making them much more susceptible to suggestions for self-improvement or behaviour change. Many describe hypnosis as a state of focused attention. My client will feel very calm and relaxed. The Medias portrayal of hypnosis does it a disservice because it suggests an unreal power between the hypnotist and person being hypnotized.It is likely that most people have been hypnotized without even realizing it, a person may have been daydreaming at a traffic light and got so lost in their own thoughts that they didn’t realize the light had changed. That is the state of hypnosis and is assumed that we all enter this state albeit briefly several times a day.

    Hypnosis facts – As a rule of thumb everyone who wants to be hypnotised can be hypnotised. It is a complete Myth that only a small percentage of people can be hypnotised. This myth was started by stage hypnotists to explain why not everyone will cooperate with them and do their silly tricks. It is perpetuated by unsuccessful hypnotherapists when they can not bring about the change that their client desires.

    Hypnosis facts – What isn’t hypnotherapy?

    Hypnotherapy is not like what you see in stage shows, where audience will often see people barking like a dog or clucking like a chicken. If someone visits a properly qualified hypnotherapist there will be no swinging pocket watches. In a hypnotherapy session, the client is in control the whole time. They will hear the suggestions I make to them, and they will be able to remember them after the session.

    Hypnosis – How did hypnotherapy start?

    Many of the clucking chicken images are the result of hypnosis’s founder, Franz Anton Mesmer (1734-1815). Mesmer mistakenly believed that there was an invisible force, a magnetic force, that could be harnessed by one person to influence another person’s behaviour. Of course, his theory was wrong, but the methods he used were highly effective. These methods and techniques were picked up on and developed over the years for therapeutic and medical purposes. Sigmund Freud, for one, used hypnosis techniques. In the mid-1900s, hypnotherapy as we know it began to emerge. Milton Erickson (1901-1980) pioneered “indirect hypnosis,” during which therapists work with individual patients to shift their perceptions of themselves and their issues.

    Hypnosis facts – What is hypnosis like?

    During the session, my client will begin by telling me about their goals and issues. Once they enter a state of hypnosis, their body will feel calm and relaxed, even as they enter a state of increased awareness, like the way they might feel when meditating.  I will place the suggestions that we agreed to in the treatment plan into their subconscious mind.

    Hypnosis facts – What does hypnosis work for?

    Hypnotherapy for weight loss or to quit dependent behaviours like smoking or drinking is how most people see hypnosis. While many of my clients do often seek hypnotherapy for these issues, there are numerous other benefits of hypnotherapy. People may come to see me before and during childbirth or to increase their self-esteem. It can also be used to deal with chronic pain, insomnia, anxiety, or to treat irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

    Hypnosis facts – What doesn’t it work for?

    While hypnotherapy can help with pain management, it does not cure diseases, like cancer or heart disease.

      Year’s resolution, perhaps to have phobia hypnotherapy, that would be a real positive change they could make to their lives and although some rather dodgy therapists might quote you large numbers of sessions and a very hefty price tag, if carried out by a properly qualified Hypnotherapist phobia hypnotherapy only needs one session.Of course, Hypnosis can help people with many other issues as well as hypnotherapy for phobias I frequently help my clients to manage weight, beat stress, gain confidence, overcome habits and dependencies, beat phobias and so much more.

      My name is Dr David Postlethwaite, I have been a practising Hypnotherapist for over 30 years, and I have a high success record with hypnotherapy for phobias. I have a PhD and a BSC in Psychology with several post graduate qualification in Psychotherapy, Counselling and Hypnotherapy, I feel privileged to have studied under some of the world’s experts in Hypnotherapy. In my 30 years of practice my work has taken me all over the world, including Qatar, Ukraine, Malaysia, Abu Dhabi, Sudan, Egypt, Oman, and Russia. I am a full member of the prestigious International Hypnotherapy Association and also listed in Hypnotherapy directory. I carry full public liability insurance as a hypnotherapist and Psychologist through Zurich Insurance one of the leading providers of medical insurance.

      A search of the internet will offer up many therapists, but I always urge people to check out the qualifications of the therapist, unfortunately regulation is far from adequate, do you really want to trust your emotional and psychological well-being to someone who has maybe paid as little as £30 for an online course, if you don’t believe me search hypnotherapy training. I always advise people to make sure the selected therapist has at the very least a degree in Psychology. Diplomas and Certificates in Hypnotherapy (even with distinctions) are not officially accredited qualifications and are often not worth the £30 that has been paid for them. Another thing I tell people to watch out for is multiple sessions, if the call a therapist and he or she tells them they will need multiple sessions, then run a mile for they are being defrauded!

      If anyone reading this feels they would benefit from hypnosis for phobias or of course any of the other issues that hypnotherapy can help with then I am more than happy to have a confidential no obligation chat with them on the telephone. Here again a warning there are many therapists offering ‘free consultations@ in reality what they are offering you is a hard sales pitch, I know of one such therapist advertising right now who only have a degree in marketing, they offer a free consultation. One of my clients told me they were there for three hours while this so-called therapist tried to sell them a £2000.00 package of hypnotherapy.

        Fear of Flying Hypnotherapy will change a person’s thoughts and behaviours associated with flying thus making it a more positive and pleasurable experience. Through using the power of suggestion and relaxation techniques, I can help you to become a more relaxed, calm about flying, helping you to feel safe and comfortable.

        Fear of Flying Hypnotherapy

        Fear of flying hypnotherapy is one of the most common

        fear of flying hypnotherapy

        Overcome your fear in one session

        phobias I deal with, with an estimated 10% of people experiencing fear or anxiety when flying. To those who do not suffer from fear of flying, this may seem like an irrational fear. But, for some,  their minds will create feelings of anxiety when it believes they are at risk or in danger. Keeping us safe is the main function of our subconscious mind, so if something is perceived as a threat, actions to protect us will be taken.Despite flying being proven to be one of the safest ways to travel, fear still affects much of the population. This fear can interfere with daily life and hold people back, but can be easily helped with just one session of fear of flying hypnotherapy.

        Hypnotherapy fear of flying – Living with a fear of flying

        Having a fear of flying can spoil the enjoyment of holidays or interfere with business plans. This can lead to people avoiding career paths that involve air travel or even missing out on family holidays abroad. There are many aspects of flying that can cause the feelings of fear and anxiety. And it’s not just whilst actually on a plane that anxiety can manifest itself. If someone afraid of flying, anything from taking the first steps to booking a holiday or arriving at an airport or maybe even thinking about getting on a plane can cause the fear and feelings of anxiety. Of course, not everyone who suffers from fear of flying will experience the same amount of fear of anxiety. The sufferers experiences can range from mild anxiety before flying, to a state of sheer panic which can actually stop a person from getting on the plane.

        Common symptoms include:

        • sweating
        • dry mouth
        • panic attacks
        • blurred vision
        • racing heartbeat
        • nausea

        Fear of flying hypnotherapy – What causes a fear of flying?

        We are not born with any fears so like all other fears a fear of flying is a learnt fear. It may have been learnt in childhood (perhaps if the individual’s parents showed similar fear) or may have come about after suffering a bad experience (such as bad turbulence or the plane making an emergency landing). It’s important to keep in mind that being afraid of flying may not only be a single phobia. This fear may also link other fears and phobias, such as claustrophobia, fear of heights or agoraphobia. But, if I can successfully identify what causes my clients anxiety, it is the first step in overcoming the fear.

        Fear of flying hypnotherapy -Overcoming your fear

        To those who experience fear of flying their friend and relatives may offer advice, but these reassuring words are not always helpful. They may, more often than not, do the opposite, making the individual feel like the fear is just weakness. It is important to know that fear of flying can affect anyone, regardless of age, status, gender and intelligence. Overcoming a fear of flying takes a lot of courage and practice. But it is possible with only one session of fear of flying hypnotherapy.

        Fear of flying hypnotherapy

        A popular treatment method for this fear is, fear of flying hypnotherapy, which connects with the unconscious. I will change the thoughts and behaviours associated with flying, making it a more positive and pleasurable experience. Re-evaluating the reaction the subconscious mind creates can often help the sufferer to regain control over a fear and feel more at ease when anxious feelings arise. Fear of flying hypnotherapy can help the sufferer to become a relaxed, calm thinker – help them to feel safe and in control. Hypnotherapy uses relaxation techniques and the power of suggestion to bring about a positive change. I will personalise the suggestions to my client, with the aim of helping them to recognise what causes their fear and why, as well as changing their reaction.

        What you need to know before trying fear of flying hypnotherapy.

        As long as you’re seeing a qualified mental health professional who has extensive training in hypnosis, hypnotherapy fear of flying is considered very safe.

          Confidence is very much a state of mind. When we feel

          self-confidence Hypnotherapy

          Gain self-confidence in 1 session

          confident, we like ourselves and believe in our own abilities. When we don’t feel confident, we can become depressed, anxious, feeling unfulfilled and ultimately, unhappy.Low self-confidence is something many people suffer with. It can be a result of many issues, such as fear of the unknown, low self-esteem, or worry of how other people see us. This lack of confidence can prevent us from developing both personally and professionally.

          Self-confidence hypnotherapy – What causes low self-confidence?

          How we see and feel about ourselves is more often than not influenced by our past experiences, whether positive or negative. The happenings and events we experience in our everyday lives, how we – and those around us – react to those events, can all have a significant impact on how we view ourselves and the world around us. How someone sees themselves may be coloured by their friends, family, colleagues, peers, or even the media. Big, memorable events such as a traumatic experience can have a significant impact and can cause their sense of belief in themselves to reduce, leading to lower confidence.

          Self-confidence hypnotherapy

          Self-Confidence Hypnotherapy accesses the subconscious mind and utilises the power of suggestion to bring about positive change. I will personalise these suggestions to my client’s needs to help improve their confidence levels. These suggestions will be positive and made in the present tense. For example, the phrase “you feel confident in everything you do” would be used rather than “you no longer doubt yourself”. The theory behind this is that the unconscious can’t differentiate between “you have” and “you no longer have”.

          How will self–confidence hypnotherapy work?

          Using self-confidence hypnotherapy, I can help my client improve their self-confidence and self-esteem. By accessing their unconscious mind, or inner voice, I will help them start to take control of how they are feeling about themselves, working closely with them to discover what may have caused them to develop low-confidence, and helping them to feel more confident.

          A persons inner voice can be their biggest critic, causing them to feel negative about themselves, their thoughts or their actions. Using self-confidence Hypnotherapy, it is possible to overcome these negative thoughts, no matter how deeply embedded they present. I will re-teach their unconscious mind and help them to see themselves in a kinder light. As well as being able to help improve their overall confidence, self-confidence hypnotherapy will help improve their confidence and self-belief around all areas of their lives, such as in work or relationships, or to boost their confidence around a specific goal such as taking a driving test or giving a presentation.

          What happens during a self-confidence Hypnotherapy session?

          To begin with, I will talk to my client about what they hope to achieve through hypnotherapy. I will more than likely ask questions about their past to try and establish any root causes or triggers for the way they are feeling. I will explain how self-confidence hypnotherapy works; I will tell them more about the process, so they know what to expect.

          Once we are both happy with what I plan to do, hypnotherapy will begin. They will be guided into a highly relaxed state. They will not be asleep – they will be aware of what is happening throughout. Once they are in this state, I will communicate with my clients subconscious, using questions and suggestive statements to challenge their limiting beliefs.

          What you need to know before trying self-confidence hypnotherapy

          As long as you’re seeing a qualified mental health professional who has extensive training in hypnosis, hypnotherapy fear of injections is considered very safe.

            I am writing this post to help the reader find their way

            qualified hypnotherapist

            Choose your therapist carefully

            through the minefield of finding a competent and qualified Hypnotherapist. Most people reading this will probably be shocked to learn that at this point in time there is no regulation or control in who can call themselves a qualified hypnotherapist and set themselves in business. In fact I would like to invite you to do an internet search for Hypnotherapy training. I did so this morning, and within minutes I had over 60 supposed colleges offering me training, some offered online courses, some weekend residential courses and the price of these ranged from £300 to over £5000 to become a qualified hypnotherapist. They all offered the rather dubious qualifications of either Diploma in Hypnotherapy or Certificate in Hypnotherapy, neither of which are officially recognised or accredited qualifications and neither of which truly make the purchaser a qualified hypnotherapist. Many of them claim to be accredited by impressive sounding associations but if you dig a little deeper you will find that these spurious organisations belong to the same people as the rather dodgy college.  What all these courses have in common is that they are all focussed on how to build a business model which will make you rich! Perhaps what shocked me most was I uncovered one such college offering me a diploma in Hypnotherapy for £30 and for just another £5 I could have a distinction. All I had to do was pay the money online and print off my certificate and I would then be a qualified hypnotherapist. So in essence you could have a certificate in Hypnotherapy with distinction in less time than it has taken you to read this post.

            My name is Dr David Postlethwaite. I have been practising Hypnotherapy here in the UK and in many other countries for over 30 years. I have PhD in Psychology, a BSc in Psychology and various Post Graduate Diplomas in Psychotherapy, Hypnotherapy and Counselling. All my qualifications have been gained through hard work from recognised universities and are attested by the UK government and various other world governments.

            One of the warning signs that anyone looking for a therapist should look out for is the number of sessions they tell you that you will need. Traditional solution focussed hypnotherapy carried out by a competent qualified hypnotherapist will only require one session. If a therapist says that it is going to need more than one session, then what they are operating is a business model and not a therapy model

            So when looking for a qualified hypnotherapist be diligent, check:

            • Check the qualifications they should have at least a degree in Psychology
            • Are they a member of the International Hypnotherapy Association.
            • How many sessions do they want you to have – remember a qualified hypnotherapist will help you with one session.
            • Do they carry full medical and public liability insurance.

              Virtual Gastric Band Scam

              Virtual Gastric Band – the Scam

              There are many so called Hypnotherapists advertising a

              Virtual Gastric Band

              Don’t be Scammed

              virtual gastric band. They claim that by taking you into a state of hypnosis and can give you suggestions that will convince you that they have fitted a virtual gastric band. You will be told that this virtual gastric band will have the same effects a real gastric band. I have never heard such absolute nonsense!  Any self-respecting and properly qualified hypnotherapist will tell you that this is rubbish, the reason being that the very fist rule of hypnotherapy we learn is that any suggestion must be believable. I ask you, is any person gullible enough to believe that a band has been mysteriously fitted into their gut…I think not!

              Virtual Gastric Band – The Truth

              Therapists offering a hypnotic or virtual gastric band generally will tell prospective clients that they are going to need at least five sessions in order to successfully fit a virtual gastric band. One of the sessions may just be a consultation, a second may be a pre-operation assessment, a third and fourth will be the virtual surgery and the fifth, if the client is lucky will be a session of traditional hypnotherapy for weight loss, and this is the one, if carried out correctly may work.

              I am a degree qualified hypnotherapist with over 30 years of successful clinical practice, I wont try and con my clients into a virtual gastric band, but I will offer them traditional weight loss hypnotherapy in only one session. After the therapy their tastes will change, they will start to lose the taste for sweet, unhealthy or fatty foods, they will lose the desire to snack.

              What you need to know before trying weight control hypnotherapy

              As long as you’re seeing a qualified mental health professional who has extensive training in hypnosis, hypnotherapy for weight loss is considered very safe.

              The first thing to consider when choosing a hypnotherapist is the practitioner’s qualifications. Look for a degree qualified mental health care professional — such as a psychologist, psychotherapist, psychiatric nurse practitioner, counsellor, social worker, or medical doctor — who is also a hypnotherapist. Unfortunately, there are many therapists advertising who have nothing more than an online qualification, they will usually claim to have either a diploma or certificate in Hypnotherapy, these are not recognised qualifications.

              You can also ask if they’re affiliated with any professional associations, such as the International Hypnotherapy Association.

              If for example, a hypnotist uncovers trauma while doing hypnotherapy, they need to know how to treat trauma. In other words, having the education and training to diagnose and treat mental health conditions — which comes from being a degree qualified Psychologist — is a key component in the success of hypnotherapy and of course your safety.

                Hypnotherapy for anxiety

                Overcome anxiety with just 1 session

                millions of UK residents each year, which makes anxiety the most common mental illness in the UK. Many people are now choosing to treat their anxiety with hypnotherapy for anxiety.  Contrary to what you’ve seen in movies, hypnosis involves a lot more than traveling into a trancelike state after looking into someone’s eyes. During a hypnosis session, you undergo a process that helps you relax and focus your mind. This state is similar to sleep, but your mind will be very focused and more able to respond to suggestion. Hypnotherapy for anxiety is a painless, enjoyable and medication free way of dealing with anxiety. While in this relaxed state, it’s believed that the person is more willing to focus on their subconscious mind. This allows them to explore some of the deeper issues they’re dealing with.

                Hypnotherapy sessions may be used to:

                • explore repressed memories, such as abuse
                • instil a desire for healthy habits that can lead to weight loss
                • help to relax and reprogram an anxious brain
                • I am there to help guide this process. I am not there to control my client’s mind.

                What are the benefits of using hypnotherapy for anxiety anxiety?

                Even though hypnotherapy isn’t as widely known as psychotherapy and medication for treating anxiety, researchers and scientists have been studying the effects it can have on mental health conditions such as anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and depression for several years. In one 2016 study, researchers scanned the brains of people while they were undergoing guided hypnosis for anxiety sessions. They found that a hypnotized brain experiences changes in the brain that give a person:

                • focused attention
                • greater physical and emotional control
                • less self-consciousness

                How is hypnotherapy for anxiety used?

                Let’s say that I have a client with a fear of flying. During a hypnotherapy session, I can give them what’s known as a “posthypnotic suggestion” while they’re in a state of trance. In this wonderful relaxed almost dreamlike state, the mind becomes more open to suggestion. This allows me to suggest to my client how easily confident they will be the next time  they sit on a plane.Because of the relaxed state they’re  in, it can be easier to avoid escalating any anxiety symptoms they may feel, such as:

                • a feeling of impending doom
                • shortness of breath
                • increased heart rate
                • muscle tension
                • irritability
                • nervous stomach

                If someone only uses hypnotherapy for anxiety to treat their anxiety, it could have effects similar to those of meditation. A hypnotic induction would help put them into this relaxed state, just like meditation. They can then use this state to address anxieties and phobias. So, if the subject is trying to tackle a fear of flying, they can visualize themselves going back to the first time they were afraid flying. They can use a technique called hypnoprojectives, where they visualize their past events as they would’ve liked to have seen them. Then they see themselves in the future, feeling calm and peaceful while on a plane.

                What you need to know before trying hypnotherapy for anxiety

                As long as you’re seeing a qualified mental health professional who has extensive training in hypnosis, the use of hypnotherapy to treat anxiety is considered very safe.

                  someone to understand the relationship between their sub-conscious mind and gut, and relieve the stress and anxiety brought on by IBS, to give relief from their symptoms. Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a complex condition of the digestive system and gut that makes the bowel to become very sensitive. The condition brings about persistent pain and discomfort in the abdomen and often, the nerves and muscles don’t work as they should. IBS is one of the most common disorders of the digestive system; and affects one in five people in their lifetime. Research has shown that women are more likely than men to suffer from IBS and their symptoms may be more severe, but can be easily helped with irritable bowel syndrome hypnotherapy

                  A small percentage people suffering with irritable bowel syndrome find their symptoms to be nothing more an occasional nuisance, for other people, however, this complex condition can adversely affect their quality of life. While IBS can develop at any time, it often occurs when a person is in their twenties.

                  Symptoms are variable whilst some individuals with irritable bowel syndrome suffer constipation, others must live with diarrhoea, while others may suffer from both. The pain can range from mild to severe and may happen at a particular time of the day.

                  Irritable bowel syndrome hypnotherapy – Symptoms of IBS

                  Symptoms are very different from person to person and can be experienced at differing severities. In some sufferers, the symptoms seem to be caused by something they have had to eat or drink, stressful periods, or food poisoning. Some of the more common symptoms include pain and discomfort in the abdomen, swollen abdomen, indigestion, feeling full vomiting, diarrhoea, constipation, cramp, heartburn and muscle pains. All of which can be helped with irritable bowel syndrome hypnotherapy.

                  Causes of IBS

                  While the exact cause of IBS is still somewhat unclear, there is research that suggests it may be due to over-active gut. For example, if the contractions of the muscles in the gut wall become abnormal or overactive. Problems such as increased sensitivity to the amount of gas in the bowel and increased serotonin levels are also thought to play a role in the development of IBS. There is also much scientific evidence to show that a person’s emotional state can cause problems in the gut. Feelings of anxiety and stress can cause the individual to suffer irregular bowel habits and symptoms can be exasperated. These feelings will in time interfere with the regularity of the digestive system, even in those who have not previously experienced IBS. The link between the subconscious mind and the gut is an interesting one and effectively by undertaking irritable bowel syndrome hypnotherapy you are learning to use your sub-conscious mind to help control your digestion.

                  When choosing a hypnotherapist it is very important that you find a reputable and qualified therapist who is a member of and governed by the ethics ad standards of the International Hypnotherapy Association.

                    Hypnotherapy for Pain Relief

                    Manage pain with just one session

                    complicated issue that can be difficult for established medicine to treat. Sometimes, a range of varying approaches are needed to help reduce pain, improve a sufferer’s independence and help them to cope with the psychological impact. Here I will look at chronic pain management and, how hypnotherapy for pain relief can help.

                     Hypnotherapy for pain relief – what is chronic pain?

                    Medical science tells us that there are two different types of pain – acute and chronic pain. Acute pain (sometimes called short-term pain) is often the result of an accident or short-term illness. In this instance, your GP may make a diagnosis and suggest ways to manage the pain (most often pain killers). However chronic, sometimes referred to as long-term pain is usually more complex. The pain may be a result of a long-term medical condition, or perhaps there may not be any immediately diagnosable cause. But this doesn’t mean the pain isn’t real, it just makes treatment that much more difficult.

                    If you are experiencing pain, I would always advise my client in the first instance to see their doctor. They will hopefully investigate thoroughly to find out what is causing it and the best options to treat it. A growing number of medical practitioners will suggest hypnotherapy for pain relief as way of managing their patients pain. Some illnesses and conditions are renowned for causing pain including the following:

                    Arthritis

                    Arthritis is a painful and disabling condition that causes inflammation and stiffening of the joints. Depending on the severity, the pain can be mild or severe, making day-to-day life difficult.

                    Cancer

                    Unfortunately, most people who have cancer will experience pain. This may be because of the tumours themselves, or the actual treatment used to combat the cancer. The level and severity of the pain will be determined by the persons own circumstances.

                    Cluster headaches and migraines

                    Cluster headaches cause sudden, sharp pains in the patients’ head and can last anything from minutes to many hours. As their name implies, the headaches tend to come in clusters, resulting in the sufferer experiencing a great deal of pain.

                    Migraines are an extremely painful form of a headache they can result in vomiting and sensitivity to light and sound. If someone suffers with migraines on a regular basis, their doctor may prescribe medication, or more enlightened practitioner may suggest the benefits of hypnotherapy for pain relief.

                    Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS)

                    This condition usually occurs after an injury has happened. The ongoing and sustained pain follows the injury and tends to be disproportionate to the actual injury again this can  be often managed with hypnotherapy for pain relief.

                    Endometriosis

                    This gynaecological condition occurs when cells similar to those found normally in the womb are present in other parts of the body. For the fortunate few, the condition is painless. The unfortunate majority however experience severe pelvic pain coupled with severe period pain and pain during/after sex.

                    Fibromyalgia

                    The cause of fibromyalgia are still largely misunderstood and unknown. It presents as widespread aches with muscles feeling stiff. Painkillers, physical therapy and relaxation therapies such as hypnotherapy for pain relief are normally advised.

                    Multiple sclerosis (MS)

                    MS is a condition that adversely affects the brain, nerves and spinal cord. Many those with MS will experience disabling levels of pain. This can either be musculoskeletal due to pressure on muscles/joints or neuropathic, where damaged nerve fibres cause a burning/stabbing sensation.

                    Sciatica and back pain

                    Sciatica is seen when the sciatic nerve is irritated by the back (this can happen after a slipped disc). This manifests itself as an ache down the leg. Other forms of back pain can be caused by previous injury or strain of the muscles.

                    Pain management

                    If someone experience pain on a regular basis, it’s important to consider how to manage their pain. It may be tempting to lie in bed and not move, in the majority of cases this would makes things worse. Inactivity can make their body stiffen up and over a period they will lose strength. This in turn can then affect their sleep and emotional well-being. If they can, they should try to stay as active as possible. Gentle exercise can stimulate a natural form of pain relief. In all cases make sure the person consults their doctor to find out which exercises they can do safely. Look for something that won’t put too much strain on their body such as: walking yoga or swimming.Sometimes just getting up an d being active is enough. They should listen to their body and don’t overexert themselves. The majority people suffering with chronic conditions require some form of physical therapy. This will be carried out by medical professionals as part of their treatment regime . Physical therapy will involve stretching exercises, manipulation and other pain relief exercise.

                    Painkillers often form part of a chronic pain management plan. A doctor should always advise on this. Painkillers can be effective; however, it is important to use them safely as they can have some scary side effects. Another important aspect of pain management involves looking at the link between the body and mind.

                    Hypnotherapy for pain relief

                    Hypnosis for pain relief often recommended for those dealing with long-term pain. Stress and anxiety are commonly associated with pain and can even make the pain feel worse. The way the mind responds to pain also has a bearing on the perception of physical pain. Therefore methods such as hypnotherapy for pain relief can Help to reduce stress and change the emotional patterns related to pain this can therefore have a positive benefit to pain perception. For this, many opt for hypnotherapy for pain relief..

                    When my client is under hypnosis I encourage them to focus on relaxation and letting go of distracting thoughts. This has the effect of temporarily tuning out the conscious part of their mind, opening them up to the power of suggestion. At this point, I will make suggestions to encourage pain relief. I will also give post-hypnotic suggestions, allowing them to carry out self-hypnosis after the end of your sessions. I certainly won’t try convincing my client that your pain doesn’t exist, hypnosis for pain aims to manage the fear and emotional anxiety they may have relating to their pain. It also helps to reduce stress, anxiety and so doing relax the nervous system to help it become less reactive to pain. I will use hypnosis for pain relief also refocuses the mind away from the sensation of pain and onto something more pleasant. For example, I may ask my client to imagine that you’re somewhere nice, like a beach. Thinking about what the sea looks like, the warmth of the sun and the feeling of sand between their toes can help to distract them from their pain.

                    Some therapists, those with rather dubious qualifications may try and convince prospective clients that you are going to need multiple sessions, however this is a falsehood, I only need to see my client once. After your face to face session I will give you a recording for you to use at home so you can continue to use hypnosis. Hypnotherapy for pain relief will involve visualisations to help the subject decrease the intensity of the pain they feel. For example, IBS ‘gut-directed hypnotherapy’ involves using visualisations to calm the gut and digestive systems.

                     

                    Hypnotherapy for pain relief

                    When someone is in pain their body will tense up. This exaggerates the pain sensation, continuing the cycle of stress, anxiety, fear, and pain. Hypnosis for pain relief can help to alleviate this. When my subject is relaxed mentally, their bodies follow.

                    Pain and mental health

                    If someone has to live with pain on a daily basis  it can be incredibly difficult – both physically and emotionally. Having to cope with long-term conditions like this can lead to increased levels of anxiety insomnia and even depression.

                    Anxiety

                    If a person suffers from chronic pain, they may find they experience anxiety symptoms. They may worry about the feelings of pain and what it means, or they may anticipate pain. Suffering anxiety can increase the perception of pain as they become more stressed and focused on the pain. Hypnosis for pain deals this very issue. By helping the mind to react differently to the pain, anxiety levels subside.

                    Depression

                    When in pain the sufferer typically feels a great deal of negativity. They may think about how bad they’re feeling or wondering ‘why me?’. This type of thinking may lead to depression. This mental health condition affects quality of life and can become very serious.

                    Insomnia

                    When a person is in physical pain, relaxing and falling asleep can become extremely difficult. In some cases, it can lead to sleeplessness or insomnia. Sleep is important as it gives our minds and bodies time to recover from the day – something that is often especially important to those with chronic pain conditions.
