The Spencelayh Practice provides pain management as a complimentary therapy, using pluralistic counselling and hypnosis, throughout Wellingborough, Kettering, Corby and the surrounding areas of Northamptonshire.
As therapy progresses, tailored relaxation podcasts or recordings on flash drives/memory sticks may be available for use between sessions.
A common reason for use of complementary therapies is chronic pain. Pain is personal, it is subjective, and the word ‘pain’ is defined by and applied to experiences learned in early life related to physical injury or psychological process. It is not enough to treat the sensation of pain in isolation. Pain can be brought on by a psychological state, like emotional distress, anxiety, depression, illness and physical injury. Hypnosis can be used to effect powerful shifts in mood, emotion, perception of pain and stress through reduction of anxiety and enabling a person through the facilitation of therapeutic suggestions to refocus attention from, or the awareness of, pain.
