I CAN HELP YOU UNRAVEL WHAT’S GOING ON

Chronic pain is real pain. But chronic pain is not due to tissue damage in the body. Pain that has no obvious physical cause, or pain that persists long after an injury has healed is caused by the brain.

Chronic pain and other psychophysiologic disorders are caused by stress or trauma, and are driven and perpetuated by emotional factors that you may not be consciously aware of.

I will help you develop your understanding of the mechanisms of chronic pain, and guide you as you find your own unique pathway out of the pain-fear cycle.

Together, we will discover and address the factors that are keeping you stuck.

I will help you explore your emotions and thinking patterns, and learn how to unwind your nervous system to promote recovery.

THIS IS MY OWN

CHRONIC PAIN JOURNEY

From my early twenties, I suffered with back pain, muscle aches and unexplained ‘injuries’ that became more persistent until eventually I was in constant pain. I was stuck in a downward spiral, until I discovered the mindbody approach and IFS.

When I learned about the neuroscience of chronic pain, and how stress can cause significant physical symptoms, I knew it applied to me. As I worked on myself using this approach, my symptoms slowly began to fade away.

As an Internal Family Systems coach and registered SIRPA practitioner, I use a somatic mindbody approach to help you find your own path out of pain.

STORIES

I’m grateful to my clients for sharing stories about their progress after working with me

Thanks

Working together has helped strengthen my belief in the mindbody approach and helped me develop a keen eye for finding the evidence of this in my own life (beyond simply believing the science and theories) and I have had several eye opening a-ha moments!

I am benefiting so much from this work and cultivating safety in my body and my life. In addition to reducing my pain and feel of pain, the real gift has been seeing how I can live a more grounded and conscious life where I am more in tune with my body and emotions.

Coaching sessions with Phil have been enlightening and helpful for me. In less than five sessions I have already learned a lot about chronic pain, and have gained insights into patterns and beliefs that are likely contributing to my experience of symptoms.

QUESTIONS?

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
  • Sessions are 50 minutes long and cost £50 GBP.
WHAT HAPPENS IN THE INITIAL CONSULTATION?

Once you fill in the form on my contact page (see button below) I will get in touch with you and arrange an initial appointment. This is a chance for us to get to know each other and see if we’re a good fit to work together. I will explain what happens in my coaching sessions, and you can ask me any questions you may have. 

WHAT HAPPENS IN SUBSEQUENT SESSIONS?

After the initial consultation I’ll ask you to fill out a form to give me some history of your pain symptoms and life stressors.

In our subsequent sessions we will explore the causes of your pain, and come to understand your triggers. I’ll suggest strategies and techniques you can use to help improve your symptoms. As you make progress I’ll keep you moving towards your healing goals.

HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL I NEED?

That depends on you. Some people only need a few sessions to see a real improvement in their symptoms or to get to a point where they feel ready to continue their healing work alone. Others choose to work with me over a longer time period because they want the extra support. 

HOW OFTEN WILL WE MEET?

It’s helpful to meet weekly at first, especially if you need a lot of support. But if you would prefer to meet less frequently, there is always flexibility. Once you’re moving forward with healing you will probably feel ready to continue on your own, but can still book an occasional session with me on an ad hoc basis if you wish.

IS IT CONFIDENTIAL?

All sessions are confidential and I will not share the content of our sessions with anyone else.

The only time I would need to consider making a disclosure would be if I believed you were at serious risk of harming yourself or another person.
