As someone who has been diagnosed with M.S. in 1998 after waiting 2 years for a definite diagnosis, Maire is acutely aware of the effects of such a diagnosis on a person’s mental state. However she chooses not to let the disease control her, rather that she would be in control of it and live life to its fullest. She researched various alternative ways and eventually, finding that how a person thinks has a significant effect on the progress of the disease, undertook to study hypnotherapy with the Irish Institute of Clinical Hypnotherapy and Psycho-Therapy, and found it to be of significant importance in handling this disease. So now she uses hypnosis, exercise and diet in her daily approach of dealing with this ‘uninvited guest’. She also underwent hypno-analyisis to deal with issues buried within her subconscious.
Now Maire offers suggestion and analytical therapies, all using hypnosis, to assist the person with this neurological condition to live life to its fullest. All sessions are planned with the particular needs of the client. Her office is easily accessible.
Depression and M.S.
Depression is common in M.S and if you have the symptoms, you are not unique, unusual or in any way to blame. Maire has experience in dealing with people with M.S.
Hypnotherapy and M.S.
Hypnotherapy can help reduce the anxiety, tension and stress that multiple sclerosis causes many people. It compliments the other therapies that a sufferer of MS may be undertaking. It is amazing the re-energising effects hypnotherapy can have. Again it is not a cure, but can help in managing the condition, especially when used in conjunction with other therapies.
Multiple sclerosis causes damage to the nerve sheaths of the muscles and when someone is tense or anxious, further damage can occur more easily. Hypnotherapy teaches complete relaxation and visualisation exercises to strengthen the body.
