What is hypnotherapy?
Hypnosis is a focused state of concentration, and one that we go in and out of many times a day – in a day dream, or listening to music for example. It is pleasant and relaxing. In this relaxed state, hypnotherapy can help to change the rehearsed anxious thoughts or behaviours you may not even be aware of which can result in a more flexible, adaptive way of being.
How can hypnotherapy help people with cancer?
Hypnotherapy can lower anxiety which may contribute to many symptoms. Hypnotherapy can help develop patience and maintain motivation to continue with desired goals such as diet and exercise plans, feeling confident in sensitive conversations or new relationships, or developing resilience with treatments.
What type of cancer can hypnotherapy help with?
Hypnotherapy can offer support to anyone living with or beyond cancer, however taking the example of breast and gynaecological cancers, hypnotherapy sessions can ease the debilitating menopausal symoptoms brought on by cancer treatment.
