Hypnotherapy for Chronic Pain

Experience the power of hypnotherapy, a natural and non-invasive approach that can help you reframe your perception of pain, manage chronic pain conditions more effectively, and significantly enhance your comfort and quality of life

Why Hypnotherapy for Chronic Pain?

The methods I use for chronic pain therapy can help with pain, but as a society full of disease, stress, and anxiety then the pain becomes almost accepted as part of life. The heavy reliance on the medical world teaches us that if pills, potions, and surgery don’t work then we just have to put up with it. Well, I’m here to say NO! You don’t have to put up with it. There is another way.

If you are in pain I will always, 100% of the time, advise you to see your GP or medical professional to check for any underlying physical cause that needs to be found. So please consult these professionals before coming to see me as if you haven’t, then it would be unethical of me to begin therapy, and I will refuse to do so.

With pain, your body is sending a message, listen to it. What happens though when the message doesn’t need to be heard anymore and becomes outdated? For example, 10 years ago you had a fire in your house, the smoke alarm goes off, alerts to the fire, the fire gets put out that very night but the alarm keeps ringing for the next ten years! That’s what happens with most pain, the alarm wasn’t turned off and now it risks hiding new messages of pain. So imagine that someone invents a reset button for that alarm. Once the reset button is pressed it turns off the alarm so it can lookout for new fires. I work with pain in the same way. If the pain is no longer needed then I turn it off, just like you would turn the fire alarm off if there was no fire. Trauma is a perfect example: You fall over, twist your ankle. The pain prevents you from weight-bearing whilst the internal repair takes place. The problem is the pain keeps recurring as it wasn’t switched off after the repair.

Now take degenerative disk pain of the lower back. Our disks often wear out by the time we are 20. It’s a perfectly normal and harmless part of the aging process and an inevitable effect of gravity. However, ask any doctor if abnormalities in the structure of the back cause pain and they will most likely say ‘yes’. Yet when you ask why the incidence of back pain has increased exponentially over the last 30 years there is no answer. These abnormalities existed long before MRIs and other diagnostic tools were invented yet back pain wasn’t so prevalent as it is now, but now we have something physical to blame the pain on yet recent evidence suggests this blame is incorrect. Studies have shown that 2 identical groups. one with back pain and one without back pain, both have x-ray/MRI imaging and BOTH were shown to have degenerative disks! So with this knowledge, how can we say that degenerative disks cause pain?

Sometimes chronic pain therapy requires a longer process than one or two sessions and this will be discussed with you during the session. Deeply entrenched pain that is a mixture of emotional and physical pain can require an analytical approach which could take around 4 sessions to offer relief. Ongoing pain management may be required for existing medical conditions as a way of coping more effectively with chronic pain.

As a therapist I’m interested in two things:

  • Do you want the pain?
  • Do you need the pain?

If the answer is no on both accounts then there is a high probability that we can do some fantastic work together!

Pain is a feeling. Like all feel they are subject to change and to change requires a little adjustment to the way we perceive pain, this is done under hypnosis in the subconscious mind. Here are some of the conditions that I’ve been able to help my clients with:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Migraines/headaches
  • Post-surgery pain
  • Chronic back pain
  • Undiagnosed muscular pain
  • Pain from cancer treatment
  • Post-traumatic injuries. ie whiplash, vehicular accidents
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Idiopathic pain (unexplained pain)
  • Neuropathic pain (problems with signals from the nerves)

What Next?

If you no longer want your pain or just want to make it become bearable and not have such an impact on your life then give me a call or send me an email. Pain is like a ball & chain around the ankles and I bet you’ve said to yourself “I don’t deserve this”. Let’s get together and see if we can help you become free again!

What our clients say


For years I’ve suffered with excess sweating when in any situation where the focus is on me or I’m nervous, like giving a presentation or being around new people. This was really affecting my job as my job involved a lot of presentations and meeting new people! My mum has had hypnosis before so I thought I would give it a try. I don’t know how Paul did it but after one session I felt more confident and was able to lead a normal life without excess sweating, he even stuck my hand to my leg which I thought was brilliant!



I’ve suffered total hair loss through alopecia, I’ve had no more than three hairs on my body at one point since it began three years ago . . .
Paul had hair growing back on my head and face within 2 days of our first session… Three sessions and four weeks later. I’ve got at least a hundred fine white hairs on my head and around 30 scattered elsewhere. It seems to be growing again . .
I also feel STRONGER and BETTER . . . I can never thank Paul enough



Hi Paul, I hope you’re keeping well. I just wanted to get in touch to let you know that following on from the successes during your alopecia hypnotherapy trial, my hair continued to grow and has now fully recovered. For the first time in 11 years I have my curls back and I look like me again! My wigs are back in their box and I honestly can’t thank you enough for setting me on the path to getting all of this fixed. All the best.
