End-of-life choices and medical decisions have complex psychological and social components and consequences; these decisions are often stressful and have a significant impact on suffering and the quality of living and dying. Hypnosis offers a way to move forward with less stress and with a positive impact on the quality of living and dying.
Along with palliative care specialists, critical to end-of-life care, there’s a relatively new approach for supplementing integrative health care the at deserves mentioning: end-of-life hypnosis which encompasses both holistic and clinical aspects.
End-of-life hypnosis offers an exceptionally focused, unique supportive care approach. It can be a powerful complementary therapy for individuals nearing end-of-life and while not a cure for any disease or illness, it addresses the mind-body concerns of the dying in a non-medical and holistic manner.
How is hypnosis conducted? Hypnosis is performed by a trained practitioner who uses verbal cues to create mental images, whereby a state of calm and relaxation is induced to help the patient to cope better with anxiety or pain. I am certified in the specialty of end-of-life hypnosis.
How does hypnosis help with end-of-life issues or concerns?
Support is available for the individual who is dying, caregivers (informal/family/friends and formal), end-of-life practitioners (doulas, hospice workers, PSWs, etc.), anyone connected to the end-of-life journey.
Imagine the right combination of relaxation, meditation, visualization, hypnosis, and self-hypnosis, allowing you to feel greater inner peace.
I have been supporting clients since 1988, actively involved in supporting families (as executive director for a national non-profit supporting corporate families in business) and seniors-related activities (at church and as a community member on the board of a non-profit in long-term care specializing in dementia/Alzheimers). In 2017 I fully transitioned to hypnosis and hypnotherapy, in 2019 I specialized in both end-of-life hypnosis and as an end-of-life doula. In 2020, I pursued additional training in hospice care and trauma resilience for the individual and community.
Imagine how it would be to find inner peace and live the remainder of your days with as much quality of life as possible.
