Most medical treatment effects are maximised with the help of therapy (e.g., Hypnotherapy). In this situation, patients are relaxed and are in a condition where they will be able to follow instructions told by the doctors.
Clients may be seeing other professionals who may recommend Counselling or Hypnosis to complement their treatment plan. In this case, client consent ensures honest and open communication, and exchange of information to ensure therapy is delivered to the best complement of the client’s needs in respect of outcomes realistically desired.
Panic is also reduced in serious cases such as accidents and serious medical conditions. Other medical conditions such as bulimia, migraine, and impotency can be treated by self-hypnosis.
Counselling and Hypnosis can significantly reduce the “suffering” component of pain, even when there has been a significant trauma to the body, like operations or accidents.
You can experience less pain and greater mobility. Sometimes you will need to let go of the anger, sadness, or sense of injustice, that keeps the “suffering” alive before you can feel at ease again.
Perhaps individuals prefer to receive therapy in order to help them prepare (and best cope /deal) with an upcoming operation. Skills to reduce anxiety and promote relaxation may be necessary to deliver during therapy. Similarly, visualising a pain free and speedy recovery (accompanied by Doctor’s /Surgeon’s instructions) may aid healing, and place clients in a healthier state of mind.
