Hypnotherapy for Chronic Pain

Decorative dots


I initially chose Mark over other qualified and experienced hypnotherapists for his friendly face and calming voice - it is important to feel at ease especially when you take a risk of opening up to a complete stranger!
My priority was to find some way of coping better with fibromyalgia, alongside the debilitating effects of depression and anxiety arising from a prolonged period of chronic pain, a life-changing episode in my life.
With Mark’s gentle demeanour and calming influence, my attitude towards my pain began to alter, so I could better accept my physical limitations, yet feel more positive about striving to keep trying to do the things I had feared.
I did not know what to expect but I can honestly say that Mark has helped guide me through one of the darkest times of my life when I had otherwise given up hope. I would urge anyone looking for a
safe way to get help to just get in touch with Mark.

Hypnotherapy for Chronic Pain

If you have suffered with chronic pain for six months or longer, the body operates in constant preparation for pain, contracting your muscles and ‘learns’ to circulate what is a redundant pain message. The relaxation of the nervous system through hypnotherapy can be very effective in helping to block the pain message, and can be a useful complementary therapy to any conventional methods you may already be using.

Hypnosis helps to change the way you perceive the pain messages and as a result helps to reduce the intensity of the pain you are feeling. The link between stress levels and pain have also been recognised. If you have lived with pain for some time, it is likely that your anxiety/stress levels are raised, which will exacerbate your pain. Hypnotherapy is highly effective at lowering anxiety levels and so can help focus your attention away from the pain onto more positive aspects of your life.
