HYPNOTHERAPY FOR CANCER
I am currently offering my clients the choice of in-person or on-line sessions.
While most people prefer face-to-face sessions, hypnotherapy can be effectively provided via Zoom if you would prefer this mode of delivery.
If you are uncertain of how to proceed I also offer a free 30 minute online session so that you can chat with me about your individual needs, you can book this by ringing 0427 639 778
Either way, I look forward to connecting with you to help you make the changes you need to make.
Solaris Cancer Care knows the importance of Hypnotherapy for people going through cancer, post cancer treatment and also for the people living with them. We all know someone who has cancer or has had cancer, I am proud to be able to donate my time weekly to this charity. The Wellness Centre at Cottesloe is a lifechanging place, if cancer has touched your life, come and see what this wonderful group of people can do for you.
In a major study of breast cancer patients in England, researchers classified the women according to the way they responded to the diagnosis of breast cancer. They found four distinct approaches to the disease among the women they interviewed.
Some women rejected with complete denial that any of the signs of their disease were serious. The denial was so complete that some patients told the researchers after mastectomies that their breasts had been removed only “as a precaution”.
Other women took the attitude that they could personally fight and defeat the disease. They tried to find out everything they could about breast cancer in order to conquer it.
A third group acknowledged that they had cancer, accepted the diagnosis stoically, and made no effort to find out anything more about the disease.
The last group reacted by simply giving up. They felt totally powerless to improve their condition and resigned themselves to an early death.
There were dramatic differences in survival rates of the four groups. 75% of the patients who responded to their diagnosis with either denial of the existence of the disease or a firm fighting spirit were alive and well 5 years later. Only 35% of the other women, those who either accepted their fate stoically or gave up completely, were still alive at the time. The patients in those two groups accounted for 88% of the women who had died 5 years later.
This shows the importance of the mind’s role in disease. There is also some very strong evidence that hypnosis can help to significantly ameliorate the effects of chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Both guided imagery and direct suggestion are effective in this regard.
Hypnotherapeutic imagery and direct suggestions are extremely valkuable in conjunction with traditional cancer treatments. One methodology involves me having you visualize your white blood cells swarming over and gobbling up your cancer cells. A study at Pennsylvania State University shoed that healthy hypnotized people could raise their per-minute white-blood-cell count as much as 40%
Hypnotherapy also has a proven track record of effecting the immune system through the nervous system by suggestion.
