How I can Help You With Pain Related Insomnia
Pain responds well to NLP and Hypnotherapy techniques. Your body alerts your brain to a problem and your brain ‘does’ the pain, not your body. Clinical studies show that hypnosis consistently produces significant decreases in pain associated with a variety of chronic-pain problems.
- Transforming the Cause
This is the key to pain-related insomnia. We will look at when your pain/ sleep issues started and events that happened around that time. Stress is the root cause of many pain & sleep issues so by removing the stressful feelings, resolving and letting go of things that have bothered you consciously or unconsciously for years, will often have a profound effect on your pain levels, your sleep – and on other areas of your life. If your Pain is affected by anxiety or depression, then resolving the core problem is really important for long term change
- Imagining a brighter future
When you are in pain and tired you tend to focus on the past, and the future is a blur. We can begin to create a future timeline that involves you doing things you love, being successful, independent and resourceful. Seeing yourself confidently using alternative strategies in stressful situations. This helps the brain create new ‘memories’.
The language we use when we talk about pain is very important. Pain makes us tense up, the word comfort can help us stay more relaxed. At a basic level try replacing the term ‘Pain Level’ with ‘Comfort Level’.
- Sleep Diary
I will normally suggest you keep a diary and record not just when the pain keeps you awake, but also your sleep patterns, the quality and quantity of sleep, your routines, what you eat and drink in the evening, any alcohol or recreational drugs, stressful events, how you are feeling etc.
- Life Coaching
Your Sleep Diary will help you identify any changes to your life style and routines that might help you relax more and combat or reduce the pain. I can help you prioritise changes you might want to make, help you set realistic goals and support you as you work towards them.
- Sleep Training
Using NLP and Hypnotherapy I can help you to:
- Relax as evening comes and stay relaxed and still as you fall asleep
- Adopt a regular, relaxing evening and night time routines
- Sleep well throughout the night
- Counter anxious thoughts and expectations
- Turn off stressful thinking
- Quieten an over-active mind
I can also teach you self-hypnosis and Breathing Techniques you can use to calm your system, reduce discomfort, slow down your thoughts and give you alternative strategies for dealing with stressful situations.
As little as 10 minutes twice a day can be very beneficial as it will give you a method of progressively becoming more still, more focused, more present and more in charge of both your mind and body. I teach simple, modern forms of meditation – no need to shut out thoughts or sit in uncomfortable positions.
How Many Sessions Will I Need?
How much detailed help you need depends on how much pain you are in and how much stress you are under. You can book session but as pain tends to be fairly complex, I recommend the Sleep Transformation Programme (8 sessions) as that combines all the above areas and gives time to work through complex issues and create the changes you want in your life. It will also equip you with skills such as meditation, self-hypnosis and positive self-talk that you will be able to use in the future if you encounter sleep or other issues in future.
