Training Hypnotherapists to Emotionally Support Cancer sufferers.

 
 

Hypno-Chemo is a psychological program, designed to assist cancer sufferers at every stage of their illness. Its focus is on getting clients to accept the powerful role they themselves can play in their recovery. The fact is we live in a society where Cancer is a taboo subject, which is strange because statistics suggest 1 in 3 of us will at some point in our lives develop a form of the disease.


     
   
HYPNO-CHEMO explained by Gary Barker
 

 


This equates to approximately 300,000 new cases a year in the UK and 1.5 million a year in the US. So, let’s be honest here, whether we like it or not cancer is directly or indirectly going to affect each and every one of us at some point in our lives.

Over the past 40 years modern medicines and cancer treatment have significantly improved the recovery rates and early detection of many forms of cancer.

However, the same can’t be said for the assistance of the psychological trauma caused by the condition. Unfortunately, the mental trauma of cancer is often completely over looked by modern medicine, leaving sufferers feeling alone, isolated and unsure how to best cope and this is the void the Hypno-Chemo program is there to fill.

Hypno-Chemo is a complementary therapy that’s designed to run in line with modern medical treatments, to psychologically assist cancer sufferers at every stage of their illness. Whether they’ve just been diagnosed and are having difficulty coming to terms with their situation. Whether they’re about to go in for Chemotherapy and are fearful of the pain or side effects associated with that treatment. In fact Hypno-Chemo covers every aspect of the illness, even for those unfortunate sufferers who discover they are now terminal and are having trouble accepting the inevitable.

The Hypno-Chemo program is not there to deal with the physical side of cancer. It's sole purpose is to assist cancer sufferers psychologically by firstly changing their perceptions about the disease and then allowing them to appreciate the powerful role they themselves can play in their cancer journey!

This is achieved using CBT, hypnosis, positive visualization and a big old dollop of common sense that all help sufferer's establish a positive expectation at every stage of their illness.
