Mental Health First Aid
Mental health first aid (MHFA) has becoming increasingly popular over the last few years, with the increasing realisation of the prevalence of both long term and transient Mental Health Issues within the community and the decreasing stigma associated with them.

Do you know a Sociopath?
According to Martha Stout in her book The Sociopath Next Door published in 2005, 4% of the population have Sociopathic Tendencies. These people are excellent actors and lack a conscience, guilt, love, warmth, genuine closeness, or responsibility.
Six Signs of a Sociopath
Hypnosis has been used for hundreds of years to control pain. Historically it has been used for setting fractures and amputating limbs. Within the last century thousands of operations have been performed using Hypnotherapy, its use in Chronic Pain Management, labour through Hypnotic Birthing and for dental treatment is on the increase.
At Hypnotherapy for Health we utilise our knowledge of Advanced Healthcare and Prescribing to enhance the effectiveness of our Hypnotherapy.
Pain can be defined as an uncomfortable feeling or unpleasant sensation within the body. The presence of pain usually indicates that something is wrong. Pain can come on quickly or slowly, stay in one place or spread.
A simplistic way to think about pain is:
Mechanical stimulation of pain receptors in the skin or connective tissue.
Generates impulses which are transmitted by a peripheral nerve to the spinal cord.
The impulse is then transferred to dorsal horns of the spinal cord
The impulse is transported up the spinal cord to the brain and is perceived in the brain as a noxious or painful stimulus.
These impulses can be modified by drugs or neuro-mediators in the brain itself or as they travel; e.g. local anaesthetic blocks peripheral nerves; morphine turns down the transmission in the spinal cord and part of the brain. This is an oversimplification but provides a brief overview.
It can also be described as Acute or Chronic, Acute pain can be mild and last a moment or more severe and last weeks or months. Chronic Pain can last years, it can be associated worth a long term condition such as arthritis or can be without apparent cause called idiopathic pain.
