Coping with persistent pain, also known as chronic pain, is pain that continues for more than three months, despite medication and treatment. An operation or injury can result in some pain during the recovery period. But sometimes the pain carries on for longer or comes on without any history of an injury or operation.
People living with diabetes, arthritis, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel and back pain can experience chronic pain. It is also possible for people to find themselves coping with persistent pain even after usual medical tests don’t provide an answer. This persistent pain can be disabling and frustrating, and can affect your relationship with family, friends and work colleagues.
The management of this persistent pain is a multi-disciplinary programme in which Mindful Guided Visualisation and Hypnotherapy can play a valuable therapeutic part in enabling the individual to learn how to take back charge of their life again, instead of the pain being in charge of them
At Oasis for the Mind it is the reduction of that pain to a more manageable level that directs the tailored programme to suit the needs of the individual and would consist of some 5 to 8 one hour sessions. The programme includes :-
- Learning deep relaxation techniques,
- Dealing with your feelings,
- What you are telling yourself,
- Building Self-Esteem and a Positive Attitude,
- Pacing and Planning,
- Self-Help techniques, and
- Dealing with flare-ups.
