Social Support for Cancer

People frequently tell me about the stigma associated with cancer. Your ability to eat, talk, and have the energy to be social can be affected by cancer treatment. Surgery, chemotherapy and radiation may be intense over long periods of time resulting in physical changes including fatigue, scars and hair loss.

According to research of cancer survivors, social isolation can increase anxiety, stress, depression and emotional distress impeding recovery. University of Chicago researchers have shown that social isolation worsens cancer.

During this painfully traumatic time, social connectedness is an important component in mental and emotional healing. You may not be able to go out or feel like having company, but there are many ways for you to make those healing social connections.

Mindfulness hypnosis can help you to reach out to family and friends while maintaining the healthy boundaries you need for your recovery.

Hypnosis for Cancer

If you are living with cancer, hypnosis has been proven to be a powerful and effective tool in dealing with the physical symptoms of cancer as well as decreasing need for anesthesia during surgery, alleviating pain, nausea, fatigue and emotional distress.

Healthcare support hypnosis in cancer settings provides reduction in pain and anxiety and empowers you to take an active role in your treatments and procedures. Studies also show that pre-surgical medical hypnosis intervention reduces the post-surgical side of fatigue pain, nausea, and anxiety.

If you are newly diagnosed, have been living with cancer for awhile or have completed your cancer care, hypnosis for cancer can be of help to you.

No matter where you may live, call or email me now and learn how you too can benefit from hypnosis.

Hypnosis Cancer Care Support

For almost 19 years, I have been proving hypnosis cancer care support to people in all stages of cancer and recovery. I’ve witnessed people managing the fear, stress and anxiety of a cancer diagnosis. I’ve taught hypnosis and stress reduction skills to people going through cancer treatment. And, I’ve supported people with end stage cancer and their families in their final hours.
