Exploring the Mind-Body Connection Helping to Heal Chronic Pain

Date TBC

Date to be confirmed

This workshop will look at how we can work with both the mind and the body to help us manage or heal chronic conditions. Much research has been done around how we can relate to our illnesses and medical conditions differently so that we don’t have to rely as much on medication. We will also explore the role of trauma and how our thinking and beliefs impact on keeping us stuck and identified with chronic illness.

The day will be interactive, informative and no doubt challenging. It will demand that you begin looking at how you’ve perhaps been defining yourself through your condition. You must be ready to start releasing the shackles of whatever physical condition you’ve been experiencing to begin to live the life you thought was never possible.

Drawing from the work of: John Sarno, Bruce Lipton, Deepak Chopra, Christanne Northrup, Candace Pert, and Babette Rothschild and looking at redefining our relationship to pain, we will explore some revolutionary ideas about illness, the development of chronic pain (the how and why) and how we need to start thinking and feeling differently to take control of our lives.

Course Structure

This is for you if you’d like to learn how to:

  • Calm the nervous system down to kick-start the healing process
  • Communicate with your body and your condition so that the pain can shift and dissolve
  • See your body/condition as an energetic force which is helping you to hold on to challenging emotions or thoughts that may have been brought on by past trauma.
  • Change your thinking around how to live life differently

Course Trainers

The course trainers are Su Orosa and Kelly Kavanagh.

Su has extensive experience of group facilitation working together leading and facilitating groups at Foundation Degree and Honours degree level in Person-Centred Counselling at East Sussex College.

Su has also individually facilitated different sorts of therapeutic, supervision, and support groups in private practice over a period of time.

We understand that everybody’s pain is different, and that each day might be different. You may need to spend most of the time standing up or sitting down. Whatever the case is for you, we will endeavour to adapt the exercises and activities according to what will feel right for you to meet your physical needs.
