Chronic Pain Coaching Programme

including Mindfulness for Chronic Pain

Neuroscience explains how stress can fuel persistent pain. If the stress / pain cycle continues, the brain and central nervous system can become wired to make the body feel continuous pain, often in the complete absence of any structural or tissue damage.

Learn about Neuroplastic Pain and how to overcome it

In very simple terms, the purpose of pain is to protect you from danger. 

However, for every single one of us, our perception is our reality. When our nervous system perceives something in our environment to be a threat, this can cause the brain to signal a false alarm, if the alarm doesn’t stop, pain becomes chronic. 

Learn how to switch off this false alarm using effective scientifically proven tools. 

The goal of the Chronic Pain Coaching Programme is for you to see your pain as a mechanism initiated by your body to guide you back into balance and safety – as opposed to a pathology to be diagnosed or fixed.

A Mind Body Approach

Many people find themselves going round in circles, focusing on physical health and trying different physical therapies, only for the pain to return. The reason this approach doesn’t work long term for chronic pain, is because the PHYSICAL component only represents one part of the whole picture.

You are a complex being, you’re not just a body; you have a mind, a heart and a soul; where chronic pain is concerned, this can’t be overlooked. 

The Chronic Pain Coaching Programme will help you navigate the landscape of well being and help you heal; Body, Mind, Heart and Soul.

Who is the Chronic Pain Coaching Programme for?

  • Your symptoms have lasted longer than 6 months
  • Medical investigations have failed to find a physical cause for your pain
  • You’ve tried to manage symptoms but without success
  • You may have had surgeries but the pain keeps returning

Chronic Physical Pain often goes hand in hand with emotional suffering. If you suffer with anxiety, depression, chronic stress, guilt, sadness, worry, fear, addictive behaviours  to name a number of ways emotional suffering manifests.

Embodied Processing is a somatic therapy which can help you identify emotions and process stress and trauma that have become stuck in your body and may be causing physical symptoms, including chronic pain.

Understanding Pain
The Information Leaflet on the SIPRA website explains how pain caused by tissue damage tends to be short term pain; whereas pain produced by the brain (conveyed via neural pathways between the brain and the body) can end up not switching off by itself. By retraining the brain and nervous system and creating the right conditions internally, pain can be resolved.

SIRPA offer an online chronic pain recovery programme
You can do module 1 for free which may help so you can be sure this approach is for you.
