Hypnotherapy for Cancer can help with your treatment and care in a number of beneficial ways

If you’re reading this page, then it is likely that you or a loved one has been diagnosed with Cancer.  You may be feeling a sense of grief, guilt, anger, sorrow or lack of control. Perhaps you are wondering what to do next?

It is likely that you already have a team of people helping you, including medical professionals and perhaps some complementary therapies as well.  My role as a hypnotherapist will be to assist you in obtaining the best results from those therapies. I can also help you create the belief that with the help of others, you can get better.

My hypnotherapy for cancer treatment varies for each person but tends to cover three areas.  Firstly, I’ll help you deal with the everyday physical and emotional symptoms.  We can then look at ways to help with the healing process and reduce any fears around future treatments.  Finally if necessary, we can resolve any underlying emotional elements, including feelings such as guilt, grief and anger.

Self-hypnosis to relax deeply and help your immune system

However, before we do any of the above, the very first step in my hypnotherapy for cancer process is to teach you self-hypnosis so that you can learn to relax very deeply.  By learning to relax deeply, your overall stress and anxiety levels reduce.  You then feel better emotionally and this will help naturally boost your immune system

When you feel calmer and more relaxed, this may provide a much more conducive environment for self-healing of some cancers. It may also help increase the effectiveness of cancer treatments administered by other people.

Helping with everyday mental and emotional symptoms

Cancer can create a lot of anxiety.  This could include worries about the side effects of treatments and possible pain.  Sometimes, it can be financial worries or concerns about being a burden to others.  It can even be worries about day to day practical issues.

I may start by encouraging you to talk about your fears and worries and really get them off your chest.  I’ll then use hypnosis to help you express and release these emotions more fully so that you begin to feel a sense of peace.  I’ll also help you to start thinking about what you want instead of the cancer.  This may seem obvious, but most people don’t really know exactly how to do this.

I will assist you to feel more in control of your treatment process and the options available.  I’ll help you develop a sense of purpose so that you have a really good reason for living.  Both of these have found to be important psychological components in many cancer survivors.

Sometimes cancer can make you feel less than you were before.  In this case, I can help you feel more valuable, uplifted and worthwhile.

Healing, Side-effects, Pain and Physical Symptoms

Part of my hypnotherapy for cancer process includes hypnotic visualisation techniques to help your body engage with the cancerous region.  For some people, this may help with slowing or reducing the cancer growth.  These visualisation techniques may also help with conventional medical interventions such as chemotherapy, radiotherapy or surgery and any complementary therapies.

I have noticed that if you can prepare your mind for the medical procedure, then the body seems to have a way of reducing the pain or possible side-effects from it.  This can help you gain a sense of psychological control over your treatment and possible side-effects

Hypnosis can also be used for natural pain relief and reduced awareness of pain.  I will only use these approaches if the cause of the pain has already been identified medically.  However, this may help reduce the reliance on medications that may have unpleasant side-effects and also help with improving sleep naturally.

In many cases, I will record the above hypnotic treatment processes, so that you can practice them at home as a form of self-hypnosis. When done regularly, this can help you gain a sense of control of your body along with hope and a positive expectation.

Underlying Emotional Issues

For some people, it can be useful to identify, access and resolve any underlying emotional issues that may have played a part in the development of cancer in the first place.  These could include unresolved anger, resentment or guilt.  If you see your cancer as a wake-up call to deal with this stuff, then this part of my hypnotherapy for cancer treatment will really help.

Resolving these issues may then have a positive impact on any further developments of cancer and ideally assist with the reduction of cancer as part of your overall treatment plan.

A wonderful benefit of using hypnotherapy for cancer is that you begin to take an active role in the healing process.  As a result, you feel more empowered, in control, worthy and with a much more positive attitude.

The importance of a person’s attitude in relation to health, well-being and healing is generally accepted these days as having a key role to play.

Your own inner belief that you can heal and recover is a key component.  It doesn’t mean that you have to do it all yourself.  It’s more your belief in the treatment, the people helping you and that you can heal. From the success stories that I’ve heard or read about, this seems to be a common factor. If this self-belief is a struggle for you, then I can help you with this.
