Hypnotherapy for Palliative/Cancer Care in Coventry, Warwickshire and the West Midlands
Clinical hypnotherapy is widely used to help people to cope better with illness, and in particular, Cancer. It aims to enhance the physical, psychological and spiritual well-being of the person. It is a lovely, relaxing experience which can be therapeutic in many ways.
It is in no way a replacement for conventional medical treatments, but can complement them and help you to regain some control over your life and the way you feel about your illness. My previous experience within Palliative Care was not only with people who had cancer, but also with several other life limiting illnesses.
Hypnotherapy can help to reduce physical symptoms such as:
Psychological and emotional problems such as:
- Fear of needles
- Fear of hospitals
- Fear of MRI scans
- Fear of surgery
- Anxiety related to Consultant appointments
- Anxiety related to chemotherapy/radiotherapy or other treatments
Spiritual needs addressed:
- Fear of dying
- Feelings of loss
- Reaching a point of acceptance of your illness and its outcome
Using my years of experience of working as a Nursing Sister in Palliative Care – and my skills acquired as a Hypnotherapist – I can help you to achieve a greater quality of life, where you can learn to relax your mind and body and take back some control. The number of sessions required will be personal to your needs and energy levels.
There are also many ways in which those caring for someone with cancer and other life limiting illnesses can benefit from Hypnotherapy. Learning how to really relax your mind and body at such a difficult time can recharge you and help you cope better with your situation.
What Cancer Research UK says about Hypnotherapy.
I work at home in the south of Coventry, which is also easily accessible from Warwickshire and elsewhere in the West Midlands. I have a comfortable, ground floor therapy room, which allows me to give individualised therapy whilst being sensitive to all your needs. There is ample parking available. However, if it would be difficult for you to get here, I am able to do home visits if within a reasonable distance, for no extra cost. This applies to palliative/cancer sessions only.
The cost of treatments is listed on the Prices page.
