Chronic Pain Counselling
Millions of people suffer from chronic physical pain, with the majority (it is estimated over 85%) of patients having no clear diagnosis. Every aspect of life is impacted: personal relationships, careers, physical activity, and health.
I lived with undiagnosed chronic pain for many years. I know the frustration of endless doctor's visits and useless treatment programs. The medical system can be helpful in pain management, but generally views pain as negative - something to be removed.
Pain as an Ally Pain has been my greatest teacher. It has taught me the value of patience, presence, humility, acceptance and compassion. My view of pain is that it has a specific message for us, and if we get still enough, we may be able to hear it. The traditional view of pain as our enemy, puts us at war with our bodies. Shifting our perspective to one of curiousity and compassion is enormously beneficial.
I will support you in accessing a deeper understanding of the message within your pain, and help improve your quality of life.
