Pain Coaching is assisting someone with Pain to realistically manage their pain through the setting of realistic goals, devised and set by them in order to minimise the effects of their pain.
Living with chronic pain effects:
- what you can do
- your ability to work
- playing with your children
- taking care of yourself
- hope that things will change for the better
Pain Coaching helps to change that. By using the skills of MINDFULNESS and A.C.T. (Acceptance Commitment Therapy) within the coaching framework an effective pain management tool can be created. Over a period of time Chronic pain and the management of long term and recurring illness stops becoming the thing that defines us.
Pain Coaching get us to challenge our preconceived ideas about the effect pain is having on our lives, changing our limiting beliefs and opening us up to new possibilities even with the pain.
Pain Coaching aims to assist people accept their pain and see through it. Rather than running away from the pain, you are focused into it, finding new ways of managing the limitations it brings. Working with you to move forward into this reality with pain, one step at a time, will help you make small changes here and there, each step moving you further away from the impact of your pain.
Pain Coaching is a technique that works for people who are affected by life altering changes through chronic ill health, long term diseases, disabilities and recurrent health conditions. Whether physical, emotional or social the impact impinges on everyday live to a level which is beyond that of the condition itself. Slowly a downward spiral effect takes over and again we create limiting beliefs about what we are truly able to do.
Pain Coaching is not a cure, it is not a therapy, it is not counseling or hypnosis. It is an approach which helps you de-clutter your beliefs about your condition and the impact it has on your life. It helps you regain the person you were before, have always been….. and can be again.
