This hybrid event will provide insights into how hypnosis can be employed to reduce psychosocial distress in cancer patients. Practical details about how to carry out various interventions for cancer-related problems will be presented, and the evidence base to justify their use will be reviewed, with particular reference to clinical trials.

Finally, suggestions will be made for future research and clinical work.

At the end of this meeting, there will be a delicious dinner where you will be able to meet professional like-minded individuals, network, and relax. Please tick the dinner option when booking to attend in-person at the RSM in London.

There is growing evidence that hypnotherapeutic interventions can be very helpful in minimising cancer-related distress; improving quality of life before, during and after treatment, and ameliorating various treatment side effects.

There is also evidence that hypnotherapy and related interventions can produce measurable neuroendocrine and immunological changes which may have beneficial effects on post-surgical recovery and tumour progression.

During this event you will: 

  • Learn about the various hypnotic techniques used in order to reduce the progression of tumours and manage stress in cancer patients.
  • Discover empirical evidence to support these techniques.
  • Learn how hypnosis can have positive effects on the immune system and on neuroendocrine functioning.

Your key speaker is Professor Leslie Walker, Emeritus Professor of Cancer Rehabilitation at the University of Hull, UK.
Until 2009 when he retired from the NHS and the University of Hull, he held the Foundation Chair of Cancer Rehabilitation and was the Clinical Lead for the Division of Cancer in the Postgraduate Medical Institute. He was also Director of the Oncology Health Service, and a founding member of the Faculty of the Hull York Medical School (HYMS).
Since the 1970s, he has used hypnosis to treat a range of clinical problems, and he has carried out five randomised clinical trials to evaluate the effects of hypnotherapy, primarily in cancer-related distress.  He is a former Member of the Council of the British Society of Experimental and Clinical Hypnosis and, in 2015, was made an Honorary Life Member of the British Association for Clinical and Academic Hypnosis.
