Do you suffer from Psychosomatic Pain ?

Hold-onto-Nothing1

Psychosomatic pain means mind (psyche) and body (soma).   Medically, this disorder is a disease which involves both mind and body. Some physical diseases are thought to be particularly prone to be made worse by stress and anxiety.

As a Clinical Hypnoherapist, I have worked (having received a Medical Referral) with many clients suffering physical pain.  From migraine, neck pain, foot pain, chronic fatigue syndrome, irritable bowel pain,  stomach pain  and more.  Basically pain is pain.

As an example of how  hypnotherapy sessions work with this, I shall tell you the story of a client named “A”.   I was working with “A” on her severe shoulder pain.  After several MRI scans, there was nothing to be seen that was medically wrong.  Subsequently, having obtained a medical referral, we began working on transforming the pain sensation into comfort.

During our sessions, I spoke directly  with the pain part in her shoulder.  Having this pain made “A” feel stuck, restricted, tired, embarrassed and that there was something wrong with her.  This triggered her to feeling sad and withdrawn and did not socialize as much as she had wanted to.  After 3 hypnotherapy sessions, the pain had significantly reduced and she started to go out more.  On our 4th session, she came back to see me and shared that she now had a pain in her foot.  She now believed this to be psychosomatic.

A part of her wanted to hold onto this pain and found a way to manifest in the body moving from the shoulder to the foot.  After a further session, her body felt comfortable and healthy allowing her to live the life she had always wanted to live knowing that there was nothing wrong with her.  She was healthy, normal and proud to be herself, her true self, giving herself permission to go out there and socialize and have fun.

Emotions Are Everything

  I work with many clients that feel they are emotionally blocked and come to see me as it is affecting their lives in many ways.  Many are very successful in their business or career, yet in their intimate relationships, they have issues, problems. No matter how hard they work and achieve, the one thing they struggle with is allowing themselves to get close to someone.  To love and be loved; To touch and fully be in the moment; To allow themselves to crave and have what they truly want,…

Have you Suffered Enough ?

Having worked with thousands of clients, I have dealt with many issues, habits and symptoms and believe it or not, some people will keep suffering and hold onto their issue/problem/habit.  So much so, they look on me being the facilitator as the enemy, the one who is calling them out.   The question I ask myself, and my client, is "What are you getting out of having this behavior/issue/symptom ?" This is known in my world as the secondary gain or negative payoff in having their problem.  For many it…

What is Self-Esteem ?

  Let me start off 2019 by looking back over thousands of client sessions which I have facilitated and look at what they all have in common - LOW SELF ESTEEM.  In fact, let us look at what Self Esteem really is. A definition may be "It refers to an individual's sense of his or her value or worth, or the extent to which a person values, approves of, appreciates, prizes, or likes him or herself (Blascovich & Tomaka, 1991)."  This may well be a good definition but how this…
