It was my great pleasure and honour to be asked to present at this years annual British Dermatological Nursing Group conference. On June 17th I was in Harrogate giving a talk to a packed out lecture room on the correlation between stress and skin disorders and how hypnosis could serve as an adjunct treatment to people suffering with problems such as eczema and psoriasis.
My talk was centred on the lack of understanding/knowledge in mainstream healthcare of the role emotions play in skin disorders. Many people were surprised at how many skin conditions were emotionally triggered.
Off the back of this talk I've been asked to present at this years Alopecia UK charities "Big Weekend" in Manchester, which I'm delighted about! I will be presenting 4 case studies which are currently underway.
I was delighted at the level of interest in this area and it really does fill me with hope that one day the psychological/emotional states of patients with chronic skin conditions will be taken more seriously that to be told "It's just stress".
