Bladder urgency and pain

Bladder urgency and pain in the pelvic area are often associated with conditions such as overactive bladder, bladder pain syndrome, endometriosis, and recovery post-surgery. These sensations often trigger emotional responses that increase sensitivity. Hypnotherapy is effective in reducing the emotional response to the sensations and in turn enabling our nervous system to calm down and support the healing process.

I look forward to helping you understand how your emotions are involved and how you can become calmer and more comfortable.


I struggled with an irritable bladder for 12 years. Four years ago, after a stressful life event, the symptoms increased and hovered including bladder urgency, frequency and burning/irritation. It made working and engaging socially/romantically incredibly difficult (often impossible). Dealing with an incredibly challenging, distracting and uncomfortable condition (physically and emotionally), I wasn’t the best version of my personal/professional self. I had reviewed frequently with a Gynaecologist and Urologist and trialled multiple medications, though was told there was no other conservative management I could try. Fortunately, I managed to find an excellent GP who is now managing my medications. I had been seeing an excellent Women’s Health Physio for an extended time who helped me to understand strategies for my pelvic floor hypertonicity & the mind-body connection, though I was at my last straw as symptoms remained. At that moment, in the middle of 2022, I found and decided to try Geordie to support my holistic recovery.

Geordie has helped me understand my condition and the influencing psychological/emotional factors. He provides a safe, open and caring space throughout the therapeutic relationship and taught me many ways to calm my nervous system and focus mindfully. We worked through some major life stressors and he allowed me to understand why my body was giving me urgency/frequency signals as a result. Over several sessions his hypnotherapy and strategies have significantly improved my body signals and for the most part, I am completely comfortable and able to live the life I want to. Thanks to Geordie’s help, if I feel uncomfortable, I am more accepting of these feelings and they do not disrupt me as they used to. I have valued my sessions with Geordie and am grateful to have found his support and expertise. I strongly recommend his services to anyone struggling with bladder irritability and the anxiety that comes with it.  

I also encourage you to keep searching for a supportive GP and I’ve found a holistic approach to my recovery incredibly useful.

I started seeing Geordie after suffering with an overactive bladder for over 5 years.  I was going to the bathroom over 30 times each day and had seen a plethora of physicians and surgeons.  I had trialled 7 failed medications, 3 bladder surgery procedures, bladder botox, physiotherapy and 6-months of weekly PTNS treatment sessions.  None of which provided me with any relief. I had lost all hope and was considering a highly invasive surgery in the hopes of finding a solution. 


Thankfully, I was encouraged by a physiotherapist to visit Geordie and try out hypnotherapy.  It was a foreign concept to me, and I was initially apprehensive.  Geordie was wonderful at acknowledging my initial doubts, and working with me to find a solution.  


Through working with Geordie, I have been able to alleviate all of my bladder symptoms.  His sessions focus on allowing the client to take control of their own body and facilitate positive healing.  We worked through past experiences, and looked at why my body was giving me these signals of constant urgency.  He has also taught me many strategies that I can use in all areas of my life to remain calm and centred.  I can see a huge difference in my quality of life since starting hypnotherapy with Geordie, and will forever be thankful for the help that he has provided.  Geordie is a highly skilled and experienced practitioner who creates a safe and welcoming environment for all.  I would highly recommend that anyone in a similar situation reaches out and books a session with Geordie.
