I can help you live pain free!
Whether or not the pain or other symptoms we are experiencing occurs psychosomatically is affected by a variety of influences and factors. These include our beliefs, thoughts, feelings, actions, and life events or outcomes. The feelings and the events we experience will often take us back to our original beliefs, forming looping patterns of thought and behaviour, further compounding the pain, or perception of pain we are experiencing. The roots of chronic pain and illness often lie in unresolved emotional issues, usually from our distant past or early childhood. It is common for people not to remember, or indeed associate, an event with the physical symptoms they are now experiencing. However, under hypnosis, the subconscious mind holds the clues and the answers to why, as well as the purpose for which the symptoms formed.
The pioneering English anatomist and psychiatrist, Henry Maudsley quoted ‘The sorrow which has no vent in tears may make other organs weep’. Maudsley was particularly interested in the link between body and mind and was considered an authority in his day. Maudsley made this quote in 1895, which is testament to his profound observations while working as a psychiatrist in what is now the Maudsley hospital in London. Roll forward to today and medical professionals believe up to 70% of patients could have psychologically induced symptoms, requiring specialist therapy and mental health support to treat the underlying causes. These causes are often routed in childhood trauma or other deep trauma.
Sometimes the mind creates the pain or illness we are experiencing not to protect us, but as a form of self-punishment, or as a means of prioritising us (getting us attention), and thereby acting as our own judge and jailer. Whatever the function of the pain or illness, the mind has created the issue because it believes it is what we want.
COACHD Rapid Transformational Therapy™(RTT™) and Hypnotherapy can produce dramatic healing effects for a whole range of medical issues, illnesses, autoimmune diseases, and pain, often in as little as one session. My therapies have a profound effect on physical and emotional health and well-being and can reduce or negate the need for further medication and drugs in patients.
Back then, our brains were filled with a higher degree of negative emotions and our bodies were fuelled by the chemistry this created. After all, you didn’t survive a natural disaster, ferocious attack, deadly disease, or starvation simply by being optimistic. And even though things are a lot better for us now, our brains haven’t changed much at all, perhaps not at all.
Often, we’ll say things like, “Ugh, if that person talks to me again, I’ll die” or “I literally cannot survive another meeting at work.” And though you may see this line of thinking as harmless, your subconscious mind already feels otherwise. It is crucial to understand that the brain has no sense of humour, and only picks up on words it hears and the pictures that those words (your thoughts) create. Your mind thinks these are real concerns and it acts upon the information it’s being given, the information you’re giving it – you know ‘the dying and not surviving thing’.
I treat people who are struggling from a variety of issues and conditions, including anxiety, depression, addictions, fears, phobias, migraines, skin problems, anorexia, obesity, and more. Although the symptoms of these conditions are very real and have a serious impact on my client’s health and well-being, the cause of the issue or illness is most often psychosomatic - caused or aggravated by a mental factor such as internal conflict or stress. In other words, the symptoms are self-induced.
In this example the migraine has a role and function, to protect the daughter from the feelings associated with her father’s harsh, hurtful criticism. When the symptoms of a problem serve a purpose such as the one in our example, the problem won't resolve on its own. Part of my job is to assist my clients in altering the underlying beliefs that have led to a problem's emergence and help them change any damaging beliefs so they can move forward and live the life they deserve.
Fast forward to today, and our mind operates in much the same way, responding to our inner thoughts as if we were still living in harsher, more perilous times. Therefore, if we want our mental and emotional health to match our safer, more comfortable circumstances, we must learn to tell ourselves a different story.
Everyone can fall into the trap of negative self-talk. In doing so, they may create problematic beliefs and damaging behaviour that results in all kinds of mental and emotional issues. In fact, the resultant emotional pain often manifests physically too.
Fortunately, the solution is straightforward. We simply need to train ourselves to foster more positive, supportive thoughts. In doing so, we can guide our minds towards outcomes more in line with our true potential and our goals in life.
This tendency for the familiar can, and often does, lead to destructive habits. For instance, picture someone trapped in a toxic relationship. The familiarity of that toxicity can become a comfort zone, resulting in a continuous cycle of emotional and physical abuse, and more harmful relationships. People in this situation will create a false narrative and tell themselves that it’s just how relationships work for them. This repeating pattern can last indefinitely, because people naturally prefer what they know, even if it's detrimental to them.
So, how do we rewrite our stories? How do we make affirmations like 'I'm lovable,' 'I'm worthy,' and ‘a pain free life is available to me' become our default mindset?
I get my clients to start each morning with positive affirmations, telling themselves the things they want to hear most, such as 'I'm deserving,' 'I’m desirable,' 'I have something valuable to offer the world.' Whatever words move them towards better thoughts and feelings, I get them to say it. I remind them that their mind is constantly awaiting their instructions and to feed it with words that build them up rather than tear them down. Peoples self-dialogue and the mental images (pictures) they create in their mind have physiological impacts, which over time can either empower them or hold them back. The difference is what they tell themselves.
Nothing bolsters self-esteem more than praise, particularly self-praise. Repeated self-praise conditions your mind to accept this positive narrative as truth. Conversely, habitual self-criticism also gets embedded in your psyche as truth, forming a self-deprecating blueprint for your life.
Thinking positive thoughts may sound easy, but here’s the thing, you absolutely must be consistent. If you’re going to tell yourself a better story and you want it to stick, you have got to tell yourself that story every day, under every circumstance, always and forever - the mind learns through repetition, and it is always listening.
Knowing that your wellbeing depends on the story you tell yourself, how do you cope during times of real adversity? Everyone encounters adversities and will inevitably assign meaning to those events. Negative self-blame and self-criticism can be harmful, but you have the power to reverse this. Irrespective of the circumstances, I help my clients change their story from 'I'm worthless' to 'I'm worthy,' and witness the transformative effect that has on their lives.
That feeling of not being enough is an incredibly common issue. In fact, without any consultation, I can confidently tell my clients that there are only three things that can be wrong with them. The first is, I’m not enough. The second is, I’m different so I can’t connect. And the third is, I really want something, like a successful sporting career, but it isn’t available to me. A possible fourth belief is, even if there is help available to me, I don’t deserve it.
Ultimately what this feeling of not being enough comes down to is a lack of self-belief and the fear of failure, judgement, and rejection. From birth, we are hard-wired to find connection and avoid rejection. It’s the fear of rejection that is crippling and can cause many of the issues that I treat in my clinic. I teach my clients that the only person who could truly reject them is themselves, and that other people can only reject them if they choose to let the feeling in. ‘I am enough’ is a phrase I ask my clients to tell themselves repeatedly, because when they know they are enough and they truly believe it, everything becomes available to them.
So, if you’ve been routinely convincing yourself that you’re unworthy of a pain-free life, your mind will do everything it can to make that your reality. Issues including Depression, nerves, anxiety and confidence are good examples of this, they are your mind and body's response to the beliefs that you hold about yourself, beliefs that can give rise to an even more powerful ‘inner critic’. Your mind will keep you exactly where you tell it you want to be, as if acting on your instructions.
Although the mind resists change, it is also quite brilliant at changing through repetition. In other words, tell your mind something enough times and in the right way and it happily recodes itself to the new instruction. That’s an aspect of the mind that I take full advantage of when treating clients suffering from pain and illness.
