Starting in the New Year with a new addition to their practice, Ferndown Chiropractic and Sports Injury Clinic are pleased to announce the inclusion of a professional Hypnotherapy, Counselling and Psychotherapy by Joy Wood BA (hon) PGCE LHS MBACP MCS(Acc) .
Joy has over 20 years experience working therapeutically within the education sector. Since qualifying as a clinical hypnotherapist, counsellor and psychotherapist she has worked extensively in pain management and control, enabling people to cope with both acute and chronic symptoms, addressing physical, emotional and psychological distress which the illness or injury can cause. Anxiety, stress and depression can often result from having to deal with everyday family, work and social life whilst being in physical discomfort.
Joy says,'Hypnotherapy is fantastic for relaxation and regaining control over physical pain, along with couselling and psychotherapy to help address deeper emotional issues which may contribute to the pain. These interventions, used either on their own or together, help to rebuild confidence and motivation to improve quality of life and ,if appropriate, restore fitness to resume sporting activities. Being able to integrate different therapies means that personalised treatment plans can be tailored to individual needs which have proven to be particularly successful.
