Pain and Hypnotherapy

Chronic pain is estimated to affect between one-third and one-half of the population of the UK, yet the American Psychological Association, consider hypnotherapy is likely to be effective for most people suffering from diverse forms of pain.

For many years, those experiencing pain were treated within the ‘biomedical’ model.  The emergence of the ‘biopsychosocial’ model offers a broader range of treatment and management options, including hypnotherapy.

What we will cover

This one-day CPD event is an engaging and interactive workshop for those with a qualification and some experience in hypnosis / hypnotherapy.  Topics include:

  • Classifications and types of pain
  • Assessing and describing pain
  • Emotional influences on pain
  • Coping strategies and secondary gains
  • Conventional and contemporary management models and treatment
  • Hypnotherapy approaches (behavioural, metaphorical, cognitive, analytical, regressive)
  • Promoting self-management: client tasks and activities (homework)
  • Case studies

A detailed workshop manual will be provided, together with a CPD certificate, indicating 6 hours of CPD (and 6 CEU for NGH members).


I found your course on hypnotic pain management just what I needed. At the time I was treating a patient presenting with long-term chronic pain and related issues. I found the updates and exercises very useful, to draw on in general, and for that case in particular. It’s always helpful to come in from the cold and benefit from current theories and clinical experiences.
