Overview

Engaging in taking psychotherapeutic treatment for chronic pain can be beneficial in various ways. Firstly, it reduces the need for surgery, medications, and other invasive treatments that can potentially be ineffective, costly, and even dangerous. Secondly, the positive impact of psychotherapy can be maintained for a lifetime. In addition, since psychological factors have been shown to play a significant role in the severity, duration, and onset of chronic pain, psychotherapy can be effectively used to treat chronic pain.
Psychotherapy can help people with chronic pain in three important ways:
• It provides a space for experiencing non-judgemental support. People in pain may experience various emotions related to the pain that other people may not ‘get’. A psychotherapist can provide a space to listen to the person talk about their frustrations, experiences, and any other emotions they may not be able to express otherwise.
• It helps people understand how chronic pain impacts their emotional, social, and physical health. A psychotherapist can help the person understand various aspects of their life affected by their chronic pain such as their social relationships, eating habits, thinking ways, and social relationships.
• It helps people with chronic pain learn new skills to cope with the situations they face due to their chronic pain. For instance, the therapist may help the person learn ways to manage their physical stress by learning relaxation techniques as well as learn to communicate better, which is one key to building healthy relationships. These relationships can then act as support system that can make it easier for the person to cope with their chronic pain.

How effective is Psychotherapy for Chronic Pain?

Psychotherapy is effective in helping a person with chronic pain as it helps address issues in a person’s social, emotional, occupation and physical aspects that either directly reduce or help the person cope with their pain better.

What are the benefits of Psychotherapy for Chronic Pain?

Psychotherapy reduces the need for medications, surgery, and other forms of treatment for chronic pain, has a lifetime effect on the person, helps provide a safe space for expression that can enhance the person’s quality of life and may contribute to reducing their experience of pain, and helps in making changes in the person’s lifestyle – physically, socially, behaviourally, and emotionally that enhances the person’s coping of their chronic pain.

How many numbers of sessions are required?

The number of sessions depends on the individual’s severity of chronic pain and the time it takes to address and overcome the aspects of the individual’s life related to the chronic pain.
