Anxiety Issues

Anxiety can manifest in many ways: Panic Attacks, Bruxism, Migraines, Irritable Bowel Syndrome…. the list is long. Hypnosis can be highly effective in dealing with these issues. We use advanced age regression techniques to ensure you can release that anxiety in the minimum amount of sessions. Typically panic attacks, for example, can be resolved in just four sessions. Please note: when age regression is recommended, consultation 1 and 2 are back to back on day 1.

Whip Lash and Chronic Pain

With whip lash and chronic pain it’s normal to integrate psychological intervention with your physiotherapy treatment. Pain has a psychological component. When people remark ‘it is all in your head’ this is not too far removed from the truth. The brain is the primary area where pain is interpreted. Sometimes the pain signals are reflective of tissue damage but increasingly we are becoming aware that the intensity and chronicity of the pain experienced is not always indicataive of damage to tissues. Hypnosis has successfully been used to decrease pain intensity, inspire a more positive mindset and decrease the disability associated with pain.

IBS

Clinical trials have shown that hypnotherapy is an effective treatment for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Your consultations here at The Galway Clinic will involve 8 to 12 consultations over three to four months, following recommended protocol for the Treatment of Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Over this time period you will learn the required skills designed to address relevant lifestyle and psychological factors. A study undertaken by Whorell, Prior and Faragher (1984) at Manchester University found that hypnosis has the capacity to influence gastrointestinal function. Examples of changes cited in the study included strengthening of contractions in the distal colon, influencing gastric emptying, alteration of gastric acid secretion and gastro colonic response to food, reduction of abdominal pain and digestive symptoms. In summary, gut directed hypnotherapy enabled patients to improve their bowel habit. Study results have indicated that up to 70% of patients report maintained improvements up to five years on.
