Your Cancer Journey Support Program
Easing treatment symptoms and supporting mental well-being

Being given a cancer diagnosis can be a tough and scary time. There may be decisions to be made, your own fears and anxieties to face, procedures and surgery to go through, and uncertainty of what to expect along the way. Many people naturally find their anxiety levels rise and in some cases depressive thoughts start to occur. Some people have fears about treatments or procedures. Others have difficulty focusing or sleeping.

 

It’s quite normal for mental health to suffer during this time or even shortly after – in fact, many people sail through diagnosis, treatment, and recovery and then find the shock kicks in and they need some help once they have been given the all clear.

 

Complementary therapies including hypnosis are becoming more and more widely used in hospital settings to promote mental health in order to keep you focused on those good, healthy, and strong parts of you.

 

Empirical research* shows that hypnosis techniques can help:

 

  • speed up recovery from surgery and other procedures

  • help reduce pain and nausea

  • combat sleep problems and eating problems

  • reduce anxiety & fear

  • connect you with your strong inner resources

  • promote a general sense of well-being.

This is a tailor-made course that is designed for each INDIVIDUAL and their specific needs and will fundamentally improve how you feel. 

 

The Your Cancer Journey Support Program will include:

  • A minimum of 4 Hypnotherapy sessions (online or in-clinic)

  • Sessions will be between 60-90 minutes long.

  • Each client will be taught powerful, proven techniques that can be used immediately to lower anxiety and feel calmer.

  • Each client is given audio support recordings to listen to between sessions.

  • Tailor made sessions designed to meet your specific needs

 

*Although complementary therapies do not cure cancer, they can have a positive effect in reducing unwanted symptoms as seen in the research article below:

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a method for change that has been proven to work over the centuries. Hypnosis is simply a state of focused awareness during which your conscious mind, your analytical brain is moved aside to allow your subconscious mind to become highly creative and receptive to new ideas.

Can everyone be hypnotised?

People who want to be hypnotised will be. Hypnosis is not as unusual as people think. People get into a hypnotic state daily while engrossed into various activities such as watching a film, reading a book or even driving. Hypnosis is simple a state of focused awareness.

Will I lose control?

No, you will definitely not lose control. During hypnosis you remain in control the whole time. All hypnosis is self-hypnosis. It is a state focused awareness that is induced through the therapist's directions. But hypnosis cannot happen without your participation. The more you follow the therapist's instructions, the more relaxed you will be and the more receptive you will become.

Will I lose consciousness?

No, it will feel as though you are in a comfortable dose-like state.

How do I access the Zoom course?

Once you have booked your place, you will be sent an email with a link to the Online Alcohol Reduction Zoom session.  Simply click the link a few minutes before the time of the session and you will be directed on to the webinar. Watch a video about Zoom.

Do I need Zoom?

It is not necessary to have Zoom installed, although you will need to internet access via a laptop, preferably, or smart phone. 

 

How will it work?

I will guide you through my tried and tested program giving you tools and advice to take away with you to use in between sessions.  I will deliver a hypnosis segment and whilst this happens, all you need to do is make yourself comfortable in a chair or bed and close your eyes and listen to the life-changing program, whilst relaxing deeply.  If you have earphones, then that is great, but not completely necessary to benefit profoundly. In between each session you will be required to listen to a support audio daily.

Do I need to do anything?

Any change requires some conscious effort on your part, so make a resolve now to take responsibility and follow the guidelines to o the letter, and success will be yours!
