A unique resource for the psychologically informed Chiropractor

As a health professional your patients are your business but also your passion. You already know how good it feels when you help someone recover their physical health and regain their life. Imagine how good you will feel when you can offer complete mind and body health to every one of your patients.  But why should you be concerned about your patients' mental health?

CONSIDER THIS

The triad of persistent pain  
Those with persistent pain are three times more likely to develop anxiety and depression compared to those without pain.

Depression increases pain severity, which in turn  significantly exacerbates depression .

Among those with pain, 89% report at least one sleep complaint and 53% present with insomnia.

Sleep difficulties are a more reliable predictor of pain than pain is of sleep difficulties.

Those with poor mental health are significantly more likely to develop persistent pain than their counterparts with good mental health.

Rates of anxiety and depression doubled following the pandemic. Safe to say, high numbers of people with poor mental health are coming through the doors of your clinic right now. So consider this, poor mental health and sleep difficulties might be exacerbating your patients' pain and might be interfering with your clinical outcomes. 

So how good are you going to feel when you are able to get better clinical outcomes AND happier patients?

THE GOOD NEWS

The good news is you already know that pain is multidimensional, and that's because you understand the biopsychosocial model of health and illness.
But what to do about it?

Your own clinical work is taking every ounce of your effort and even if you are psychologically trained, how do you fit this in to your working day?

Well, there's more good news!! Good Mental Health Online, created by Dr Pat Partington, offers you the clinical service of psychological therapy for each and every one of your patients!  

You now have a resource, a tangible solution, at your fingertips that might just prove invaluable, and rest assured your patients are in good hands! 

What is the Online Clinic? 

*Your patients receive 24/7 access on their computer, tablet or smartphone to the evidence-based treatments of Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Hypnotherapy.

*The courses have specialist modules for persistent pain, but there's also a separate educational course for 'Understanding Pain with Metaphor and Science'.

*As if that's not enough there's a course for overcoming insomnia and sleeping better with pain, which combines the proven strategies of iCBT and self-hypnosis.

*There is absolutely no cost to your patients - they are going to love you for this investment in your new clinical service!

*All of the courses are updated regularly, which is why I call them 'living courses'.

*The courses are presented in a Talking Workbook format, but they are also available as pdfs.

*A qualified psychologist is available for answering questions and for checking-in with progress.

*Preferential rates are also available for 1-2-1 zoom sessions with Dr Pat Partington.

*Depending on the plan you choose, you also receive 10 CPD courses on motivation and mind-coaching. Delivered throughout the year following sign-up, these are crafted for professional as well as personal development.

Good mental health is about much more than the absence of anxiety or depression, it's about functioning at your full potential. 

“Before I started my anxiety was hard to control and I felt like it would take over my thoughts 24-7. Since learning these techniques I have noticed how I can more easily gain composure from the thoughts that usually cause anxiety.”

“I'm able to control how I feel more easily. I find it easier to relax and focus. I’m far less anxious in social situations and I’m feeling more positive and optimistic about the future. Now that I understand how the mind works, it makes me feel a lot more optimistic about the future.”
   

“Hypnotherapy has been the most helpful approach I have tried since I was diagnosed with anxiety four years ago. It gives practical and fast-acting tools to overcome anxiety, explained in a logical and scientific, but also accessible way.”

Research shows that happy people take responsibility for their health, they make better health decisions, they eat healthier diets and they exercise more frequently and regularly.

Happy patients make a healthy business!

View some free samples from  the Getting Started package, three comprehensive online courses that you can share with each and every one of your patients.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, the Gold Standard of all psychological interventions, which teaches you to improve your mental health by changing your thinking styles and your behavioural responses.

Mindfulness meditation, which brings you out of 'doing mode' and into the therapeutic here and now of 'being mode'.

Pain Education is central to something known as the biopsychosocial model of health and illness, which is the most up-to-date, evidence-based approach to managing pain. Once you understand that your pain is an experience that incorporates biological, psychological and social elements, you can see more clearly how you will benefit from psychologically informed treatment modalities. 

View some free samples from the Getting Better package, which gives your patients full access to the entire Online Clinic. So, as well as the CBT, Mindfulness and Pain Education courses available with the Getting Started package, you also receive:

Hypnotherapy, an evidence-based course that teaches deep relaxation alongside techniques for emotional control and thought restructuring, which I refer to as giving your thoughts the LASER treatment. Imagery rescripting sessions will reprogram your brain to respond more confidently in situations that once caused anxiety. Includes audio recordings for controlling your pain.

Sleeping Better is a comprehensive approach that combines sleep education with sleep hygiene, blended with instruction for self-hypnosis for creating theta brain wave activity of the brain. This matches the brain activity of stage 3 sleep, from where you will gently drift down into deep, refreshing sleep. Includes audio recordings for sleeping better with pain. 

View some free samples from the Being Your Best package, which gives your clients full access to the entire Online Clinic. As well as this you also receive 10 CPD courses for your professional as well as personal development. Please note, these are delivered regularly throughout the year following sign up.

The first, entitled 'How to Win Friends and Influence Clients' begins with an understanding of the power of belief. Strategies are then developed for effective information-giving in ways that will not disrupt the other person's belief systems. In other words, you'll never get into a disagreement with your patient! 

The fact is that telling people what to do doesn't work, but worse than that it actually reinforces resistance to change, which you can read all about in my book 'Motivation and the Solution Focused Mindset', which is available as a free download to those who have purchased the 'Getting Better' and 'Being Your Best' packages. Here's a clip from the first CPD lecture, just to give you a feel for things.

So now you know, when the world contradicts our beliefs rather than change our beliefs we'll distort our world to protect them.
