WEIGHT MANGEMENT at

The Chorley Clinic

 

Do you struggle with diet and find that your weight often yo-yos?

 

Well, help could be at hand with the aid of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy.

 

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is an effective and safe way to help someone lose weight by allowing them to gain control over their eating habits.

 

Catherine Eland, Solution Focused Hypnotherapist working at the Chorley Clinic comments "It’s not a one-off therapy session”, I work with a client over a number of appointments to help them take control over their eating habits, so they can start to make informed decisions on the food types they choose.”

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy works by helping someone to reduce their stress bucket levels.

“We all have our own stress bucket, and, when the levels fill up, we can find ourselves indulging in bad habits, such as comfort eating, to try to cope.” says Catherine.

 

Hypnosis is used as part of a therapy session to help drop the levels in the stress bucket through a natural process of Rapid Eye Movement (REM), which occurs when we are in a trance state and is a natural part of the sleep cycle.

When REM happens, we effectively start to see that our stress bucket levels drop, which provides a calmer outlook, so allowing the client to take control over some of those pesky cravings, which would otherwise see them reaching for the biscuit tin.

 

Every session focuses on positive steps taken since the last meeting and both therapist and client work together on what can be done to further help reduce stress by focusing on positive goals – either short term or long term.

The hypnosis part of the session lasts for around 20 minutes and helps the brain to focus on those positive changes for the future, so allowing us to move forwards and notice a real difference.

What is Physiotherapy?

 

Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession with a scientific foundation.



It involves working with people to promote their own health and well-being in a broad and varied range of work.



Physiotherapy helps improve and restore movement and function to as near normal as possible when you are affected by injury, illness or any other disability.

 

Physiotherapists work in a wide variety of health settings such as orthopaedics and sports injury, intensive care, mental illness, stroke recovery, occupational health, and care of the elderly.

I have expanded on some of the areas of that you will find can be helped by physiotherapy.

 

Back Pain

Whether back pain rules your life or you get an occasional twinge, this summary will help you understand how physiotherapy can help. Research shows that in most cases it is best to keep as normally active as possible.

 

What is back pain?

Almost everyone experiences back pain at some point in their life. The pain may occur suddenly and be gone in a couple of days, or it may last for weeks or even longer. Back pain usually gets better, but often recurs. The pain may be limited to the spine itself, or it may spread to the groin, buttock, leg or foot on one or both sides. It may also cause pins and needles, numbness or burning sensations in one or both legs or feet. It can also cause the same symptoms in the arms.

 

What causes the problem?

Back pain can be the result of a range of conditions that affect muscles, tendons, ligaments, discs, nerves or other soft tissues or joints. Most back pain does not have one simple cause, but may be due to a range of factors, such as poor posture, repetitive activity and bad habits. Pain does not necessarily mean there is a serious problem. 

 

How can physiotherapy help?

Physiotherapists are highly skilled at supporting people with back pain. The physiotherapist may offer manual “hands on” therapy and will explain how you can manage the pain, contribute to your own recovery and prevent the problem from recurring. Research clearly shows that physical activity and exercise help, and a physiotherapist can provide an exercise programme based on your health, ability and fitness levels.

 

Sports Injury

Sport and exercise can sometimes cause injuries whether you are experienced or just beginning and no matter at what level you perform.

Sports injuries can happen as a result of:

  • not warming up properly before exercising
  • pushing too hard for your current level of fitness
  • using inadequate equipment

 

Sport injuries can be acute (recent injury less than 6 weeks) or chronic (longer than 6 weeks)

  • Acute sports injuries occur as a result of an accident, incident, or awkward movement e.g. sprained ankle, strained knee ligament
  • Chronic sports injuries develop over time, often due to continual use of the same joints or muscle groups

 

Acute sports injuries need immediate treatment. Initially remember R.I.C.E.

  • Rest
  • Ice
  • Compression
  • Elevation

 

If in doubt go to Accident and Emergency for an assessment and then seek follow up physiotherapy from a Sports Injury Specialist.

 

Osteoarthritis

Whether you have been diagnosed with osteoarthritis or have painful joints that you think may be arthritic, this summary will help you understand the causes and how physiotherapy can help you.

 

What is osteoarthritis?

Osteoarthritis is a common condition that may cause joint stiffness, swelling and pain usually in the knees, hips, feet, hands and spine. Some people's arthritis can be so severe that joint replacements are the best solution, while others experience few symptoms even though X-rays show that they have quite advanced osteoarthritis. 

 

What causes it?

It is not known exactly what causes osteoarthritis, although it can be triggered by injury or repeated stress on a joint dependent on your job or activities. It usually affects people aged 50 and over, and is more common in women. Genetic factors play a role in some forms of osteoarthritis. 

 

How can physiotherapy help?

Physiotherapists are highly skilled at helping those with osteoarthritis, as they can help improve movement, strengthen muscles, and increase or restore mobility.

 

Stroke

Every year around 150,000 people in the UK have a stroke. This summary will help you understand some of the causes and show how physiotherapy can help.

 

What is a stroke?

A stroke is a sudden 'brain attack' that occurs when the blood flow to part of the brain is cut off. If brain cells do not receive enough oxygen, they can be damaged or destroyed. This may make it difficult for the person to move their facial muscles and limbs, to speak and swallow, or to understand what is happening around them. 

 

What causes it?

A stroke is usually caused by a blood clot blocking part of one of the arteries carrying blood to the brain, or a blood vessel within the brain bursting, resulting in bleeding into the brain. Stroke is more common in men than women, and in people over the age of 55, although it can occur at any age. A family history may increase the risk, as can lifestyle factors such as diet, drinking alcohol, smoking and lack of exercise, but sometimes there is no obvious cause.

 

How can physiotherapy help?

Physiotherapists play a key role in the healthcare team within hospital specialised stroke units, which also include doctors, nurses and occupational therapists, and in home aftercare services. As the 'movement expert' on the team, the physiotherapist's main aim is to help the person regain their movement and mobility.

 

 

We can help you ease your symptoms by hands on physiotherapy as well as help you understand the problem and learn how to manage it, just give us a call.

Aim for better sleep with Solution Focused Hypnotherapy

 

In our busy, modern lives where we are constantly juggling work schedules, finances and family life. then it is all too easy to find ourselves feeling too stressed to sleep.

 

Well, if that sounds familiar then you might want to look at visiting Birkdale Hypnotherapy, where my training and skills can help you to relax with the aim of helping you to sleep better at night.

 

We all live increasingly busy life styles, and modern living can see our stress levels build quickly.

 

When we go to sleep then the brain normally reduces our levels of stress by a process involving REM or rapid eye movement sleep. It can be thought of as lighting many stress candles during the day and at night these are blown out, so we can start the next day feeling refreshed and stress-free.

 

Unfortunately the REM sleep is limited to only 20% of our sleeping pattern, so if there is a lot of perceived stress then you quickly use up that 20% of REM and as a result you may find that you wake up and struggle to get to sleep, as if some of those stress candles are still burning in the morning. 

 

During the hypnotic sessions Solution Focused Hypnotherapy techniques are used to help refocus on the positive aspects of life so the guided relaxation or trance work can integrate these ideas and reduce those levels of stress.

 

I believe it may take a number of sessions for the effect of the therapy to be felt but its effects can be extremely beneficial- not just for helping sleeping but the techniques can also be used in other useful ways weight, stress and anger issues.

 

I am a member of the Association of Solution Focused Hypnotherapists which insists on the highest standards of practice among its members, who are fully qualified, insured and have the necessary DBS checks. We attend regular supervision and career development sessions designed to provide you with the latest research in psychology, psychotherapy and hypnotherapy.

 

Here to help!
