    Hannah Millington: Chronic Pain & Stress

    Chronic Pain & Stress:
    Writer and journalist, Hannah Millington experienced chronic pain in her hands.  At one point she was told by medical professionals that there was no cure and she was given conflicting information by many health professionals.  Determined to find some answers Hannah carried out her own research leading her to deduce that the pain was linked to repressed emotions and the stress response.  In this fascinating interview Hannah shares with us a number of valuable insights including the power of hypnotherapy, the importance of expressing and not repressing emotions, the importance of education and much more.  
    Hannah is a graduate of the University of the West of England.
