Breast Cancer your Support Through Chemotherapy
Hypnotherapy to Promote your Emotional and Physical WellbeingDownloadable Audiobook - 2013
This is a gentle, relaxing recording for adults (or possibly older teenagers with parental consent) who are facing, or already undergoing, chemotherapy for breast cancer. It aims to help you: - Imagine a healing sanctuary and experience a sense of calm and comfort - Discover your inner strengths - Build confidence , calm, resilience and optimism - Practice visualisation techniques to help cope positively with chemotherapy side effects - Visualise yourself using healing light to minimise discomfort - Visualise your body's natural healing forces working well - Listen to supportive affirmations in the background as Lynda speaks to you This audio book is designed to support women at the emotional level and also help them cope with any physical side effects of chemotherapy through the use of simple-to-learn breathing techniques, visualisations and mental pain relief techniques. This relaxing, calming, comforting and uplifting recording uses the gentle imagery of a healing sanctuary and self-directed healing light. You learn strategies that other women have found helpful and also hear affirmations which have been suggested by women who have come through the treatment themselves. These affirmations play gently in the background from time to time while Lynda speaks to you. You can listen to this audio book in different ways and at different times; you can use it in the lead up to your treatment to accustom yourself to drifting into this pleasant relaxed state so it becomes an automatic response just when you need it most. This will also help you internalise powerful suggestions that you welcome the treatment since you know it will shrink down and / or eliminate cancer cells and help speed your recovery process. You will almost certainly want to use it after each treatment to help you cope in the best possible way with any unwanted side effects and listen again during the breaks between treatments as a mental, physical and emotional boost to your immune system and over all well-being. Research shows that when a person first acts out each positive step in their imagination, it dramatically increases the likelihood of their success in the real world. This recording contains powerful suggestions for boosting confidence and self-esteem. The language and topics used are carefully crafted to appeal to listeners of all suitable ages. Lynda Hudson's gentle, well-modulated, English voice calms, re-assures and encourages. A clinical hypnotherapist and former teacher, Lynda has worked with many children and has helped them overcome numerous problems. Her work has been widely featured in the press and she has appeared on both TV and radio. PLEASE NOTE: This audio book is not intended as a substitute for medical assistance.
