Hypnotherapy for Menopause
The menopause if different for everyone. Some people seem to breeze through it without a care in the world, while others suffer dreadfully and most of us experience hot flashes to some degree.
And Hypnotherapy is a restful way of helping to manage menopause symptoms. So while I will give you homework, because it’s all about connecting with yourself and caring for yourself, like everyone else, I am sure you will find it a pleasure and a joy.
Hypnotherapy for menopause is a recommended 5 sessions of deliciously integrated therapies in which we focus on what matters most to you & the menopausal symptoms you want to address.
Techniques include deeply relaxing hypnosis, clinical hypnotherapy, solution focused practices, CBT, mindfulness and (friend for life) mind-body techniques and breathing techniques.
And because menopause doesn’t happen in a vacuum, there might be other things that you want to address as well…
So you can consider this as self care on a stick!
Hypnosis is both deeply relaxing and effortless, it can help promote positive chnage both consiously AND subconsciously and all you need to do is relax! Even if you normally find relaxation difficult, hypnosis is makes it easier. And Hypnosis is just one part of this gorgeous integrated approach!
Menopause hypnotherapy is well know for helping hot flushes (aka hot flashes), feelings of anxiety, tiredness or insomnia but, as I’m sure you know, there are lots more symptoms besides.
But do I need 5 session?
No, you can do whatever you you want! But research has shown that most improvement is seen after 5 sessions and that for some people, ‘top ups’ or returning for a full second run can help maintain the benefits.
What about the 5 sessions?
It all depends on you, but we will talk through a plan during initial consultation. Popular techniques include:
Progressive Muscle Relaxation: The opposite of the stress response, once mastered this can give you full relaxation with a single thought
Colour Anchoring: Reframing physical or emotional discomfort into comfort (or anything else you want!)
Glove Anaesthesia: How to make your any chosen part of your body cool and pain free with your mind
Blue Marble: Develop your own touch anchor to help bring about relaxation and coolness at any time, without even closing your eyes
Gut Directed Hypnotherapy: If your symptoms include IBS, taking time to harmonise the brain-gut axis could be worth it’s weight in gold
What’s the problem with the Menopause?
The Menopause is when you stop having periods naturally… But periods don’t just stop, the process can take years and with the drop in oestrogen levels about 8 in 10 of us will experience symptoms.
For some, these symptoms might only last a few months, but for others it can last a few years. And given that every cell in the human body contains oestrogen, the symptoms that you might experience are as broad and varied as the way they make you suffer.
The list is endless, but here are a few of the most common symptoms suffered and the good news is that Hypnotherapy helps. In fact, there is quite a lot of research and evidence that shows that Hypnonotherapy helps.
- Aches & Pains
- Hot flushes (occur in about 3 in 4 women)
- Night sweats
- Sleep problems
- Anxiety (including new phobias)
- Joint pain & aches
- Feeling like you’re not coping as well as you used to
