If you have got this far, chances are you already know what learning OldPain2Go® can do for you, just in case - here is the information you need.

OldPain2Go® Explained

Usually pain is just a temporary thing. We hurt ourselves, it’s painful, we get appropriate medical attention, it gets better and the pain goes. In the case of long term pain, something causes that initial pain message to stick around, still treating you as though there is a need to keep you informed that you have a problem.

OldPain2Go® is available ONLY after your doctor has diagnosed the problem and one of the following applies:

1. There is nothing more can be done but manage the pain.

2. Your Doctor cannot find the reason after exhausting all the test processes and offers pain management.

3. You have a degenerative condition where it is likely the pain will not go away.


How Does it work?


So you say, “How can it work when highly trained medical people cannot achieve the same results?” Quite simply your body repairs itself even though it has never studied medicine. It has kept you alive for years: running your heart, your lungs and thousands of other processes What an OldPain2Go®  practitioner does is to bargain with the part of the brain that deals with pain and ask if it will release you from it. Because of that it is a totally safe process – if you still need to have the pain message it will remain

It is a simple method with a lot of understanding and whilst it takes a day to learn it, it takes a lot of study and experience to master it!

Because it deals with Old Pain Messages it can remove them permanently. New Pain (acute) can be felt at any time it is required and the old pain is not their masking any appearance of new pain. Therefore this even works on pain removal from degenerative disorders.

Questions and Answers

Please note: This does not constitute medical advice nor is it a substitute for it. You must have been diagnosed by a medical professional who has prescribed or advised pain relief. An OldPain2Go® Practitioner will work with you to help you access the part of your mind that deals with your own healing processes and help you ask for it to review your pain messages. It is a non-medical intervention of self work.

Yes it can with a client who is positively wanting to be pain-free.

No. Pain management is about ongoing effort and rarely leaves you free of pain.

One of three things: Zero Pain, Reduced Pain or, No Change.

It may work regardless of the original cause, providing there isn’t a need for it to be retained. If there is still a reason to keep the pain then the unconscious will not release it

No. Pain is a message that once it has alerted you to the problem, and you have done all you can, it is no longer needed. Think of a fire alarm, it gets switched off and reset to be alert when the fire is out, even if it has caused damage!

Questions and Answers

Yes, they may. Just think about this for a moment, if you are prescribed strong pain tablets or injections that is the medical profession saying that the pain is not necessary! Pain killers do not stop the pain message being sent out they simply interefere with it reaching the part of the body it is intended for. OldPain2Go is directed at asking for messages to be stopped, if it is safe to do so.

Yes it may. The old pain message has done its job and alerted you and the medical profession to the problem. That old message can be deleted and allow new pain to arrive as is needed to alert you to a new problem or a worsening condition.

On deteriorating conditions, you are likely to have regular assessments by your medical practitioner to review the problem area. OldPain2Go® would act like pressing the fire alarm reset button. Your body is aware of the damage caused by the old fire and can reset the alarm to stop ringing and it will automatically ring again to tell you of a new danger.

When pain is first triggered it forms a neural pathway in your brain, which fades quickly if the pain is short term. However, if the pain continues it builds up an increasingly stronger neural connection almost like a neural motorway. This is the same way we learn to run things automatically. Unfortunately, we are learning the wrong thing. Pain does not have an end date stamped on it, and it may “forget” to re-evaluate or turn off.

The longer you have had the pain the more likely it is that it no longer serves a purpose – you are aware of it – nothing can be done (medically) and your doctor prescribes pain relief. These are all signs that the old pain message is redundant. All that is required is for you to convince your unconscious of it.

Typically this is a once only treatment for that old pain. It works by asking for the old pain messages to be deleted, therefore, the old pain message should not return, just as a deleted answer phone message cannot be played again and the tape is cleared to accept new messages. A second session would usually only be wanted if the first session didn’t produce a result you are satisfied with or the Practioner feels there may be further opportunities for improvement.

No, the practitioner may help you deal with all issues at the same time or tackle the most problematic pain issue first and then ask for the others issues to do likewise. It may take more time so the practitioner should be made aware in advance so as to allow sufficient time.

It is not a medical treatment or a cure for any illness or ailment, it is simply a reassessment of the unconscious processes that decides on the need for pain and the level of it. It has worked for people with Fibromyalgia. However, having Fibromyalgia is a condition where the message is usually still required, even though, or perhaps because, you are trying to ignore the pain or work through it. Please read here my personal explanation of how I think the illness starts and what you need to do to be released from it. If you do not have an interest in reading this fully or finding out how to put yourself on the road to recovery, then quite simply OldPain2Go is not for you. We can only help people willing to do what is necessary to recover, we do have an answer, it might not necessarily be the answer you wanted or agree with (but the National Fibromyalgia association makes statements that seem to agree with my own experiences).

Quite simply the unconscious will not switch it off, because it would be unsafe to do so. The same reason you don’t take the battery out of a smoke alarm.

Providing you are of sound mind and rational – not under the influence of mind-altering drugs and alcohol, it may work for you – except where there is more reason to keep the pain than to lose it. Whilst you will gain a better quality of life from being pain-free there are things you may also lose, such as; state benefits, sympathy, help, support, and reasons to not go to places – or do things you don’t want. Whilst consciously you may deny that any of these influence you, it is your unconscious that decides on the balance of being in pain, or pain-free. The simple test is to answer this question out loud, “Do you want to be free of this pain?” If your answer is a solid and loud yes, then it will most likely work for you. If you hesitated or thought of reasons or excuses then it might not work. However your practitioner may be able to help you with that, please bring this to their notice. It is most important you are honest and open with them.


Questions and Answers

Course Attendants
Alan teaching NLP

Yes, it would, but it doesn’t numb the area, it just turns off the old pain message allowing new pain to come as and when necessary. Holding on to old pain is similar to the problem of numbing an area, it means new pain might not be noticed and acted upon.

This is usually a restriction placed there by your thoughts and beliefs. If you think being pain-free would lead to causing more damage or that you would forget you had a problem – that would cause it to only reduce the pain instead of turning it off. Sometimes people see X Rays or scan results, so convince themselves they could not possibly be pain-free with that amount of damage. Hopefully, your practitioner can talk you out of that!

We will instruct you on use of language and internal thoughts. If you keep looking for the pain you have lost it could convince your unconscious to give you pain again. Also, our exaggerations can intensify pain or make it seem too much of a problem to remove. Take the phrase “this pain is killing me” and you can see that is never true but it will affect how you feel.

Yes, it may, but not necessarily. Sometimes the pain is a message to not do that thing again. This is why if we fall off something we are told to get back on right away so that we don’t develop a safety program that will continue to hurt us, in order to protect us from greater harm. Speak to your therapist who may have other skills to help you over that trauma. OldPain2Go® also works on emotional pain so you must guide your therapist to the solution for you. Please pre-warn them in advance if you believe you have strong emotional issues that may complicate the issue.

No. The process is the simple setting-up of a yes signal and a direct discussion you will have with your own unconscious under the guidance of the Practitioner, no trance state is needed.

Yes totally. It works by the same internally processing of your unconscious that keeps you alive, runs your heart, your lungs and every other cell in your body. We just make it aware of that the pain is more of a problem than helping you. Your unconscious then makes the best choice for you, and it has kept you alive all these years.

People don’t really seek out the help they don’t know exists and are therefore cynical in trying it. It sounds and feels unbelievable long after you have become pain-free. It’s a bit of a vicious circle when people don’t take the opportunity because it seems like no-one else has! All my client’s and most of my students hoped it would work but didn’t really believe it could until they saw it happen, and then the students did it and had the same results themselves.

No, and it is unlikely to ever have them. Measurement of old pain is subjective to the individual. Even if there were a way, currently this work is done by individuals who cannot set up multi-million-pound research facilities. The purpose of my training others is to get the method out there and have more people recognise that it really does work. In December 2018 there are over 800 Practitioner and that number is rising quickly. A UK university is currently doing a feasibility study (Feb 2019). the outcome of which could lead to a full blown study.

It has been demonstrated to doctors and some have also had it demonstrated on them, all of whom have been impressed. However, we have only met the ones open minded enough to make contact with us. We have also trained Doctors and Psychologists who have become Practitioners in OldPain2Go®

You DON’T need to BELIEVE it will work – You must WANT it to. This is a partnership of mutual intent with your Practitioner, who really wants the best for you.

I have attended several of Alan's training courses and can highly recommend him to anyone. He is extremely knowledgeable and very professional. He is also a genuinely caring person too which I think is just as important as there are a lot of over inflated egos out there!

Lynn Marshall - Registered Nurse

Alan is the best trainer and facilitator I have ever had the pleasure of working with. I have completed four of the Change Working courses and each time I come away more inspired. The NLP has impacted directly in my work in education and classrooms whilst also shining the light on the personal journey which has been life changing. The IEMT has brought an additional layer to coaching my one-to-one clients and each one has reflected that they felt positive change after the process. I can wholeheartedly recommend Alan; his ability to safely challenge, guide for change and hold the group without judgement is a great talent. I am returning next year for more NLP as I can trust the process, the facilitator and maximise my learning.

Anna Robinson - Specialist teacher for SEMH

Loved today’s course. Alan gave a whole new perspective on an intriguing approach. Would
definitely recommend Change Working

Tracey Dunning

Just brilliant! Alan inspires confidence, he's 'a real human being' and doesn't set himself up as 'a guru'. He's passionate about what he does and he shares his knowledge in an open and honest way. He just wants his students to be successful at what they do - both on a personal and professional level.

Valerie Edwards
