I spent yesterday in Bristol learning from my amazing colleagues how to deliver effective help for chemotherapy patients during treatment. The award winning team delivering the CPD today are pioneering hospital-based Solution Focused Hypnotherapy in Wales where they have become an essential part of the oncology team. I was left totally in awe of the help that they offer to patients in a time of huge distress, on a completely voluntary basis. Their research and experience shows that hypnotherapy is effective in reducing anxiety and also reduces the need for medication such as anti-emetics during chemotherapy.
Though I will not be practicing in the hospital at this stage, this can also be done in the therapy room. Hypnotherapy is very effective for reducing anticipatory nausea and vomiting, needle phobia and general anxiety around your treatment.
