Studies at Hull University Hospital by Professor L G Walker suggest that guided visualisation really helps empower a patient when the distressing aspects of Cancer overwhelm them. A patient feels that they must endure the treatment and that there is nothing they can contribute. In fact there is a great deal that they can do to help themselves recover and enhance their chances of survival.

In tests they formed two comparable groups on Cancer and AIDS sufferers: one had treatment and no hypnotherapy and the other also had hypnotherapy/visualisation.

The survival rate and recovery was significantly higher in the group who underwent the hypnotherapy course – which offers practical approaches to reduce stress and address the feelings of helplessness and hopelessness and fear. You are also taught ways to enhance your treatment with visualisation. There is also work to help with pain mangement.

NB: This is not a replacement for proper medical intervention but is complementary to it and based on cutting edge and solidly researched methods.

Finding your Balance is a survival approach for those living with cancer which I have designed for people facing this most life-changing of illnesses. I teach clients how to use the power of their unconscious – which runs the body and processes behind the scenes – to help in controlling pain and discomfort, improve your mood, and to own and engage in the healing process.

If you follow the plan that we work out together you can improve your quality of life, reduce anxiety,  and by rehearsing the attack on the cancer and promote recovery this logically leads to an improvement in your condition. Research by Prof L G Walker show great improvement in recovery and longevity in those using this kind of approach.

Your state of mind has a significant effect on your medical outcome, people who are engaged in healthy-minded living will normally do better medically, even if they have a life-changing illness. Dave Elman, the famed American Hypnotherapist, who was widely respected  by Dentists Doctors and Surgeons that he trained in Pain Relief with Hypnosis back in the 1950s and 60s, used to tell them to make sure that their patients were in a positive state of mind before any significant surgery – that people could literally kill themselves by the assumption that they would die!

I work with the client specifically to: Address Their Needs, Raise their Hopes and increase their inner Mental Resources, participating in their own recovery rather than being the passive recipient of medical interventions, becoming proactive towards your cancer rather than passively accepting it, Making New Neural pathways and remembering when you were well – the body knows how to heal itself – it does so with a cut – often before you are aware consciously – so we stimulate you to relate to a time before your cancer was present and go into that memory as a reference for your unconscious processes – going backwards to move forwards.

The Cancer Wellness Doctrine

“Cancer has changed my life, but that does not mean my life has changed for the worse. I will decide how my life has been changed.

While there may be moments of uncertainty, there will always be reasons for hope. 

I am the most important member of my healthcare team. The more active and curious I am about my treatment the better my outlook will be.

I have the power to make a difference in my treatment and care.

Physical healing is not the only goal of my treatment. I can also use this time to heal my spirit, relationships and my heart.”

(Revd C. Scott Giles)

 Pain Relief with self hypnosis

We are very good at making pain worse. A great deal of pain is because we notice it and ramp it up .. What could I mean by that?

I had a client with a ten year history of daily headaches. He had had all the tests and there was nothing physiological wrong with him so the Doctor suggested it might be psychological.

I worked with him and we managed to eradicate almost all his headaches – I would never eradicate it completely because Pain is usually a message that something is wrong! He had all he needed to control his headaches and our business was concluded. Within 3 weeks he called me – his headache was back! I realised that what he was doing was waking up LOOKING FOR THE HEADACHE and any hint of it he rapidly became convinced he was going to have a blinder of a headache and sure enough did. We needed to do more work on his belief that he could control it – after he had managed three weeks with hardly any pain!

I am NOT suggesting pain isn’t real – it definitely is – but we can learn methods to control it better.

That is what I work with you to achieve.

I recently worked with a Stroke Patient who was a senior Doctor – with the approval of his Doctor and Specialist – and so I offer an approach using autogenic visualisation  – please talk to me if interested.

Either way leave a name and number and good times to call and I will call you to discuss the best way to help you.
