This page contains information about Jason Demant’s pain management and pain reduction sessions
Hypnotherapy can help reduce pain intensity. However for some pains this may not be always appropriate. This is because the body ‘needs’ you to experience that discomfort in order to push you to seek immediate help. For example someone, otherwise healthy, who experiences knee pain when running, needs that signal. The body sends you that discomfort so you don’t put pressure there and create further damage. Though it may be unwise to drastically reduce these ‘needed’ pains.
Jason provides stand alone sessions for pain reduction. Jason also runs a structured six session IBS and chronic pain programme. Scroll down for more details. Helping you reduce the emotional or psychological impact pain can have on daily life. Jason can help you upgrade your resilience, coping mechanisms and confidence.
A study at the University of Washington demonstrated hypnotherapy to have a positive effect for chronic pain sufferers. For some their pain was reduced and most found their overall wellbeing and outlook improved, with better sleep and more confidence. Importantly this was achieved with no side effects.

This six session programme is not a generic approach. Sessions will be about your needs. Importantly Jason will ask you about your thoughts and beliefs about illness and pain. This work is very important to help you put in place better psychological coping mechanisms. Often illness or pain can result in the neglect of friendships, work, school, exercise, eating healthily and feeling optimistic. Jason will work with you to improve these areas as well. Often pain interferes with sleep and anxiety levels. If needed, Jason will help here too.
You are invited to book a free phone consultation and speak to Jason informally about what you need.
Choose what works best for you. Either book individual pain reduction sessions or the six session programme. If travel is difficult for you, depending on your location, Jason does sometimes make home visits. Jason’s West End location has a lift, if walking is difficult.
Your Medical History
Please be aware that Jason will ask about any medical diagnosis, medication and previous interventions you may have had. In some cases it can be beneficial for Jason to talk to your consultant/GP.
It is important to remember that a hypnotherapist is never a substitute for appropriate medical care. However, Jason is expert in approaching your pain management from a different angle. Besides hypnotherapy work, Jason has a wealth of experience providing informal counselling support for people with life-limiting conditions. This includes conditions such as cancer and COPD (progressive lung diseases). He understands how these conditions can impact on confidence, emotions, mood and outlook.
Jason can help you deal well with how pain has impacted on your family, emotions, resilience, motivation or thoughts about your future.
Quit Smoking Now! Programme
Jason, You have been very helpful. Changing negative habits for positive ones is really the key. The meditation exercises were great. But the most effective thing is to have someone to talk to. Rarely do you find somebody who takes you by the hand and shows you a way out. My breathing capacity has increased and this changes my whole personality. My children came last night and they asked me whether I have done a face-lift. Of course, the skin looks much better without a veil of smoke and depriving the cells of oxygen and vitamin C. I also became much more assertive.
Alcohol Reduction Therapy
Jason helped me to explore the causes of my negative issues and to develop strategies to ensure long-term term solutions. I 'm very happy to endorse him to anyone considering hypnotherapy. It worked for me! Thank you Jason.
Weight Loss and Emotional Eating
Jason really helped me sort out my problems with my relationship to food. I learnt simple and effective steps to help me eat in a conscious way, know when to eat and when not to. I learnt to identify real hunger and to know when I have had enough. Jason is genuine and caring and was very easy to speak to. I highly recommend him when dealing with weight loss and food issues.

Weight Loss and Emotional Eating
I wholeheartedly recommend Jason's method of coaching. It definitely helped me to cut down on my eating, and I'm also more aware of why I eat when I'm not hungry. In addition, I now have new ways of coping with stress.
Change Behaviour Patterns and Anger Management
Jason enhanced the way that I think and the way that I view people. Because of him, I am more grounded, get less emotionally upset with people, and am truly living up to the goal that we had set during coaching; to become less judgemental of people and be more sensitive
towards other's feelings, and to learn how to communicate with people in way that will make me more effective in receiving what I want. I really feel that Jason was a blessing from God.
Weight Loss and Emotional Eating
Thank you so much for your support and guidance. You were truly an ally in helping me define my goals and structure my thoughts, beliefs and actions towards living each day with more fulfillment and efficacy. Thank you for your remarkable skills, support, accessibility and guidance via our conversations and e-mails these weeks. You have been an incredible and effective coach and a supportive ally who has fuelled my inspiration and provided me with effective tools. I highly recommend you.
