Fibromyalgia

Psychological Therapy for Fibromyalgia in Wolverhampton and Online

Fibromyalgia is characterised by chronic widespread pain and a heightened pain response to pressure. Other symptoms often include feeling tired to such a degree that normal activities may be affected, for example sleep problems. Some people also report restless legs syndrome, bowel or bladder problems, numbness and tingling, and sensitivity to noise, lights or temperature.

Fibromyalgia is frequently associated with depression, anxiety, and post traumatic stress disorder.

The cause of fibromyalgia is unknown; however, it is believed to involve a combination of genetic and environmental factors with half the risk attributed to each. Environmental factors may include psychological stress, trauma, and certain infections.

The pain appears to result from processes in the central nervous system and the condition is referred to as a “central sensitization syndrome”. Diagnosis involves first ruling out other potential causes and verifying that a set number of symptoms are present and so we always recommend that sufferers consult their GP before seeking any kind of psychological support.

Recommendations for the treatment of fibromyalgia often include getting enough sleep, exercising regularly, and eating a healthy diet. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy may also be helpful.

Fibromyalgia is estimated to affect 2–8% of the population. Females are affected about twice as often as males. There is controversy about the classification, diagnosis, and treatment of fibromyalgia. While some feel the diagnosis of fibromyalgia may negatively affect a person, other research finds it to be beneficial.

If you’re committed to overcoming your fibromyalgia problems then we highly recommend following either our Advanced Tranceformental CBT programme with Paul, or Joan.

The Tranceformental programme is a highly successful & pragmatic psychological training course, run over 10 sessions, that will teach you everything you need to know to understand your problem, identify how unhelpful thinking and limiting beliefs might be reinforcing the issue, and then show you how to make any changes to your unhelpful thinking styles or maladaptive safety behaviours that you may have developed as part of your coping strategies.
