Support for your choices and practical help for your challenges

Receiving a cancer diagnosis can be frightening and traumatic. You May feel overwhelmed and confused as you are moved rapidly into the medical 'system" with little time to process your options and how to deal with this life-changing information. Your beliefs and ideas about your health and what's important may be challenged and you may feel "pushed" in different directions and to make certain choices by family, friends, and the medical community. You may feel that you are ill-equiped emotionally, psychologically, physically and spiritually for what lies ahead.

However you need not feel alone in these choices - Counselling and hypnosis can help!

We can help in many ways. Having a knowledgable professional to work with you in helping to clarify and sort through the many variables to consider in order to help you make the right choices for you can be enormously helpful and empowering.

You also need good tools and strategies to help you cope and to manage the challenges ahead. As well as psychotherapy itself, hypnosis can be a powerful resource in managing the various dimensions of cancer treatment  - whether you choose conventional approaches, alternative treatments or a combination of both in journey

Hypnosis can help in the following ways:

  • fear and anxiety management - this can be a major issue in  managing cancer  and can interfere with your ability to feel confident and empowered.
  • treatment side effects such as nausea, vomiting, fatigue, stress and sleep disturbances - hypnosis has been shown to significantly reduce these impacts
  • preparation for and recovery from surgery - hypnosis can speed healing and recovery times.
  • pain management - hypnosis is a powerful drug-free pain management tool that can help you reduce or possibly even eliminate the need for pain medication 
  • mobilization of natural healing processes - hypnosis capitalizes on the mind-body connection to help stimulate the body's immune system and healing capacities.
  • maintaining a positive and hopeful mindset - keeping positive can be a challenge but can be key to a successful recovery. Hypnosis (and counselling) can help maintain a positive outlook and perseverance throughout your journey

Evidence-based

Hypnosis is not a "woo-woo" intervention - it has been scientifically validated to help in the above areas. Hypnosis is recognized as a valid clinical approach by the Canadian Medical Association; The British Medical Association; The Canadian Psychological Association and the American Psychiatric association. Hypnosis is regularly used in government funded medical clinics in the UK.
