Some people are more complicated than others. When a client goes to a hypnotherapist for help and does not get better, it is never the client’s fault. It is that the therapist does not have the requisite skills, knowledge or personality to effectively help the client. Now hypnotherapists can acquire these skills here.
Training for hypnotherapists and health professionals. We offer intensive one-day, two-day, and three-day fundamental and advanced Pain Control Hypnosis Practitioner courses. These courses are designed for professional hypnotherapists, physicians, physician assistants, nurses, chiropractors, physical therapists, occupational therapists, dentists, psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and other mental health professionals. All of these practitioners see patients with severe acute and chronic pain in their respective fields, and are in a position to offer precise hypnotic pain relief if they know what to do and how to do it.
The real world of pain is a lot more complicated and much less black-and-white than the distinctions and generalizations given in textbooks or on this website. Effectively treating any patient or client with hypnosis for pain control demands empathy, compassion, wisdom, knowledge, technical know-how, experience, interest, good intentions, good training, and a competent intake evaluation. It also requires a thorough knowledge of hypnosis, good hypnosis training, and adequate knowledge of pain mechanisms, human physiology and neurology, and psychology.
Acute pain requires an appropriate medical or dental work up. If you can confidently and competently explain to a client or patient the cause of the client’s pain, if you know it, and how treating the cause will alleviate the pain, this is likely to reduce the client’s anxiety. However, if the patient’s work-up doesn’t identify a treatable or fixable cause, we must address the patient’s anxiety. It has been said that the fear of pain is often worse than the pain. This is so true, plus fear can make pain worse too.
Chronic pain also requires an appropriate medical or dental work up. However, chronic pain is way more complicated. Living with severe and unrelenting chronic pain makes most people experience some type of depression. And depression makes pain worse. Successful employment of hypnotic techniques for altering pain sensations and distracting the client his/her preoccupations with the pain requires that the client believes that you take him or her seriously and that you agree that the pain is real and NOT all in the client’s head.
FACT. All pain is real. With chronic pain, there is almost always old emotional baggage that needs to be released. Hypnosis practitioners learn how to do this effectively in our courses. The problem of controlling chronic pain is compounded when a patient is diagnosed with a medical condition that isn’t going to go away. Patients with chronic or debilitating medical conditions associated with persistent pain face the challenge of figuring out how to get along with their pain and somehow make peace with it.
It is the Pain Control Hypnosis Practitioner’s job to help patients with pain to accept their condition medically and accept responsibility for what they do about it.
It is the Pain Control Hypnosis Practitioner’s job to help patients with pain build ego strength, self-confidence, self-love, find faith, develop curiosity, and mobilize courage in order to be able to learn new pain coping skills.
