Dr Jon Graham MBChB MRCGP

I have worked as a Doctor in the NHS since qualifying in Manchester in 1990 and have been practising as a GP since 1997. I am passionate about the provision of high-quality, individualised healthcare and the importance of a trusting and professional therapeutic relationship in the service of healing and wellbeing.

Pursuing my interest in chronic pain and the interaction between Mind and Body, I completed Foundation training in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy with the Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust and subsequently the Freedom From Chronic Pain Training Programme for Clinicians with Dr Howard Schubiner in the USA, which provided me with training in Pain Reprocessing Therapy.

Chronic Pain

Many patients I have seen over the years have been frustrated by current medical treatment for chronic pain which targets the symptoms with strong opioid analgesia and other psychoactive medication which do not cure the symptoms but may cause side effects and have risks of tolerance and addiction.

With over 25 years experience as a GP and training in psychotherapy and Mind-Body Medicine, I have found that it’s possible to help clients who are stuck with chronic pain through careful listening, attunement, education and brief therapy, I aim to get to the root cause of chronic pain symptoms and empower clients to take control of their own health and learn how to dial down the intensity of their pain without the need for medication or invasive procedures

What is Pain Reprocessing Therapy (PRT)

Pain Reprocessing Therapy (PRT) represents a paradigm shift in the treatment and management of chronic pain. PRT is a focused, short-term talking therapy that teaches you techniques to re-wire the pain pathways in your brain.

Most cases of chronic pain are not actually due to significant structural damage in the body but are the result of a complex interaction between brain, mind and body resulting in what’s known as neuroplastic pain. Understanding how the mind and body can interact to create symptoms is vitally important to uncover the obstacles to recovery and facilitate the healing process.

PRT can empower you to gain control over the intensity of your pain and take charge of your health.

Who may benefit from Pain Reprocessing Therapy?

  • Chronic pain management for individuals with Fibromyalgia, chronic neck pain, chronic back pain, chronic headaches or Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
  • Individuals who have been experiencing persistent pain for 3 months or more.
