Psoriasis – what causes it and can Hypnotherapy help?

Psoriasis is a skin condition that causes red, flaky, crusty patches of skin covered with silvery scales. These patches, which normally appear on the elbows, knees, scalp and lower back can be itchy or sore.

The severity of psoriasis varies greatly from person to person, but it commonly affects the sufferer’s quality of life, leading them to have low self confidence and to avoid social situations where their psoriasis may be noticed.

Although the cause is not fully understood, it’s thought to be related to a problem with the immune system, often triggered by a certain event, known as a trigger.

It is my belief that, in many cases, psoriasis is the subconscious mind’s way of seeking attention or possibly distracting attention away from an issue that the sufferer did not want or could not deal with at the time, often a childhood trauma or a period of high stress.


I am delighted to say that all my services can now be provided online, over Zoom, Skype, Teams, WhatsApp or Facetime, as well as face to face at my clinics.

Let me help you deal with your psoriasis.

I use hypnotherapy for psoriasis to help the client deal with any underlying stress or trauma and create a change in any negative beliefs that client may hold about themselves.

Hypnotherapy can also help to reduce the redness which, in turn, helps to reduce the itching or pain that are often associated with psoriasis.
