Hypno-Oncology ( Working with Cancer Patients )
Evidence has shown that Hypnotherapy has proved to be extremely valuable whilst you are receiving treatment for cancer.
The diagnosis and treatment of cancer are often stressful, and can affect how you think and feel. It can make you anxious and frightened and bring all sort of thoughts in your mind and in the minds of your loved ones.
However, studies have provided evidence that much of this distress is preventable and manageable by getting the right support. There is ample evidence that relaxation therapy, guided imagery and hypnotherapy can be very beneficial in helping patients cope with the diagnosis and treatment.
As with many types of complementary therapy, some people with cancer use hypnotherapy to help them relax and cope with symptoms and treatment.
Hypnotherapy might help some people feel more comfortable and in control of their situation.
People with cancer most often use hypnotherapy as an effective supplement therapy in the

Furthermore, Hypnotherapy helps with relaxation and will help improve the quality of life whilst undergoing the intensive treatment required In cancer patients.
All therapies are designed to be used in conjunction with conventional treatments and are not a substitute for treatments provided by medical practitioners. The therapies I practice are used to relieve the symptoms of cancer or the side-effects of conventional treatments. Please note that Hypnotherapy CANNOT TREAT CANCER.
