Hypnotherapy for Migraines

Migraines are more than just headaches; they are a complex neurological condition that can significantly disrupt daily life. Our Hypnotherapy for Migraines service offers a unique approach to managing and reducing the frequency and intensity of migraine episodes. Understanding that migraines often have both physical and psychological components, we tailor our therapy to address these multifaceted needs.

Through Clinical Hypnotherapy, we aim to tap into the subconscious mind, identifying and addressing potential triggers and stressors that may contribute to chronic headaches. Our approach is not only about managing pain but also about enhancing overall wellbeing. We focus on relaxation techniques and stress reduction strategies, which are crucial in mitigating the onset of migraines.

Integrating Diverse Therapies to Reduce or Eliminate Your chronic headaches

In our approach to treating migraines, we integrate a blend of Clinical Hypnotherapy, Psychotherapy, Counselling, NLP, and Psychology, each offering distinct advantages:

Clinical Hypnotherapy

We use hypnotherapy to access the subconscious mind, addressing the psychological aspects of migraine triggers. This method helps in altering stress responses and reducing the frequency and intensity of migraine attacks.


This involves exploring emotional factors and past experiences that may contribute to migraine susceptibility. Understanding these aspects can be crucial in developing effective coping strategies.


Provides a supportive environment for clients to discuss their experiences with migraines. Counselling helps in identifying and managing lifestyle factors that may trigger or exacerbate migraine episodes.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)

Employs techniques to change negative thought patterns and behavioural responses associated with migraines, fostering a more positive and proactive approach to managing symptoms.


Incorporates cognitive-behavioural strategies to manage the pain and stress associated with migraines. This includes relaxation techniques, stress management skills, and biofeedback methods

By combining these methods, we offer a holistic and personalised approach to migraine treatment, focusing on reducing symptoms, improving quality of life, and empowering clients to manage their condition more effectively.
