Long Covid Therapy Institute

I first began my unique and flagship long COVID clinical trial and research study in October 2020 when the first cases of long COVID began to emerge.

Long COVID is now a long term health problem for the UK, and the world, with sufferers expected to be in our hospitals and requiring NHS services well into the future. Long COVID will be with us for many years to come.

The results

After many months of research, clinical trials, working with patients, trialling hypnotherapy techniques, old and new, and some of my newly developed techniques, as well as the assessment of all results, the much-awaited final results of my long COVID clinical trial and study are in!

As a clinical hypnotherapist, I wanted to assess the effectiveness of hypnotherapy in the treatment of patients with long COVID. All the volunteers who took part in the study had had COVID-19 and were then suffering from long COVID.

And I am delighted to report that the results since October 2020 are outstanding. The evidence was overwhelming, and patients and volunteers reported and showed signs of the following:

  • increased stamina and strength

  • reduced pain

  • reduced joint pain and muscle aches

  • improved sleep

  • improved mobility and flexibility

  • ease of breathing (and improved breathing patterns)

  • improved senses (taste, smell etc)

  • increased focus and concentration

  • improved mood, and a higher sense of well-being

  • improved appetite

  • increased happiness and positivity

  • improved confidence

  • increased motivation and belief that they / things will get better

  • an ability to do simple activities and carry out everyday tasks

  • improved mental health and mental well-being,

  • improved (and less extreme) emotions

  • an overall desire to keep taking steps forward, as well as a renewed zest for life

Each participant in the trial was assessed before, during, and after the treatments using various world-renowned medical assessment techniques and tools. These included the PHQ-9 Patient Health Questionnaire, the WEMWBS Mental Wellbeing Scale, as well as my own clinical hypnotherapy assessment tools.

Long COVID is an extremely debilitating condition. But with the correct treatment and support, and with a well-qualified hypnotherapist, it does ease, and patients and clients do get better in time. If you or someone you know is suffering from long COVID, then please know that clinical hypnotherapy is now a well researched and recognised therapy in the treatment of long COVID. Help is available.

Long COVID: symptoms lasting 12 weeks or longer:

  • breathlessness

  • fatigue

  • chest pains

  • palpitations

  • poor sleep

  • brain fog

  • mental health problems

  • joint and muscle pains

  • lung problems

  • heart problems

  • poor mobility

  • loss of senses

  • depression and anxiety

  • loss of appetite

Long COVID is a new illness, and so the treatment has to be developed as we learn more about the disease. Some of the symptoms are similar to those experienced with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), also known as ME.

Patients will be able to access help with the help and support of a qualified clinical hypnotherapist. Therapists will be able to train and gain greater insight and skills into the treatment of long COVID. As well as existing techniques, therapists and hypnotherapists will be able to learn and acquire a new blend of techniques specifically designed in the treatment of long COVID.

How to practise self-care with long COVID

You can also help yourself at home too. Here's how:

1. Understand that your hospital stay (illness) may have been frightening

If it was your relative in hospital, they may not want or be able to talk about it. Hallucinations, delusions, delirium, and confusion are side effects of illness, medication, and noisy ICU wards. But these symptoms will pass. Understanding this for yourself or for your loved one will reassure you that these feelings and experiences were temporary.

2. A balance between support and encouragement

People can often lose confidence after an illness. They may need more support, positivity, and more encouragement and kind words than normal. And it is also important to encourage yourself (or them) too to become fully independent as soon as possible.

3. Look after yourself

If you are the carer it is often easy to forget about yourself. Self-care for yourself is just as important as the care for your friend/relative too.

4. Feeling overwhelmed?

If you are feeling overwhelmed by the situation, by your illness, or by caring for someone else then remember to do three things:

  • Prioritise. And only do what is really needed at that time, on that day.

  • Rest. Make sleep your priority. Rest and recharge and take care of yourself.

  • Seek professional help. Speak to your G.P. or to a therapist.

Clinical hypnotherapy has now proven to be an extremely successful and effective treatment in and for the recovery of long COVID.

Phobias, Trauma, PTSD & Grief What is a phobia? A phobia is a type of anxiety disorder. An estimated 10 million people living in the UK, and 19 million people in America have phobias. Phobias can affect anyone regardless of age, sex, and social background. A phobia is an overwhelming, intense, pronounced, and debilitating fear of an object, place, situation, feeling or animal. It is much more intense than a fear. They develop when a person has an irrational, exaggerated, and / or unrealistic sense of danger about a situation or object. Social phobias, and social anxiety disorders are some of the most common phobias. 15 million Americans and approximately 8 million people in the UK suffer from some form of social anxiety disorder (SAD).  It is a long-lasting and overwhelming fear of social situations. More than 75% of people experience their first symptoms during their childhood or early teenage years. It is a common problem that usually starts through the teenage years. It can have a huge impact on your life and be incredibly distressing, but help is available and the phobia and related issues can be resolved effectively. The Liebowitz Social Anxiety Scale can be used with the help of a medical professional and therapist  to assess the extent of your social phobia. The first question asks how anxious or fearful you feel in the situation. The second question asks how often you avoid the situation. This measure assesses the way that social phobia plays a role in your life across a variety of situations. Clinical Hypnotherapy can be used to ease, relieve, and ultimately combat and resolve all phobias and anxiety disorders. Phobias can often be triggered and develop from an initial traumatic event or incident, and last for many years afterwards if left untreated.

How are phobias linked to trauma? Often a phobia may develop after a serious incident or traumatic event. For example, the London Bridge and Westminster terror attacks in 2017, and the Manchester Arena bombing terror attack in 2017 left many people in shock, and later suffering from symptoms of trauma, and some were also left with the effects of PTSD. Even people who weren’t at the actual terror incidents were affected. Someone does not necessarily have to be present at the actual incident or event to be affected by it and thus suffer from the resultant symptoms of trauma, and the effects of anxiety, trauma, PTSD. Often family members and friends are also affected by traumatic events, reliving what happened to their loved ones. Grief also affects the victims’ families, especially if a loved one has died or suffered life changing injuries. Grief There is no right or wrong way to grieve. Grief is a natural response to loss. And there are some healthy ways to help you deal with the grieving process. Often the pain of loss can be overwhelming. It is helpful to remember that grieving is a completely individual and unique experience for you.  The grieving process takes time and healing happens gradually. It cannot be ignored, forced or rushed.  In 1969, psychiatrist Elisabeth Kübler-Ross introduced what became known as the “five stages of grief.” Here are the five stages of grief: Denial: “This can’t be happening to me.” Anger: “Why is this happening? Who is to blame?” Bargaining: “Make this not happen, and in return I will ____.” Depression: “I’m too sad to do anything.” Acceptance: “I’m at peace with what happened.” And again, it is important to remember that we may all pass through these 5 stages differently, at different speeds, paces, and intensity. Our experience of grief will be unique to us. What is trauma? A trauma is a deeply distressing or disturbing experience. A traumatic event can cause physical, emotional, spiritual, or psychological harm. Common sources of trauma include: Rape. Domestic violence. Natural disasters. Severe illness or injury. The death of a loved one. Witnessing an act of violence. As well as there being many other causes of trauma not listed here, it is also important to remember that everyone experiences trauma and its symptoms in unique and various ways. Here are some of the more common symptoms of psychological trauma: Shock, denial, or disbelief. Confusion, difficulty concentrating. Anger, irritability, mood swings. Anxiety and fear. Guilt, shame, self-blame. Withdrawing from others. Feeling sad or hopeless. Feeling disconnected or numb. Phobias, trauma, PTSD, and grief can all be inextricably linked and tied together by one extreme incident in the past. Although this is not always the case, it is a common scenario. However, as unique as we all are, so is the case for people suffering with phobias and the after effects of a traumatic life event. No one person is the same, and nor are their life experiences. This is why each person should be treated and cared for uniquely. We all have our own story. Clinical Hypnotherapy is widely used to help people overcome fears, phobias, trauma, grief, and PTSD.

The Happy Chemicals Inside Your Brain, & How to Find them!

Many of us are fortunate in that we have always been naturally happy and positive. However, many people are not. So why is it that some people are always a glass half full person, when others around them are not? Instead, why are some people always a glass half empty person, negative, and sad? When others always seem to be so very happy with their lot in life? And on a more serious level, why are some people suicidal, or suffer from anxiety, PTSD, trauma, or depression?

Clinical Hypnotherapy allows us to look
