Helping someone deal with a simple headache:
Have them close their eyes. In a slow, soothing voice:
how big the headache is.
How much it weighs
What is it's color?
Doe is make a sound? How loud?
Does it have a shape?
Is it moving? Slow or fast?
Does it have a taste? Bitter or sweet? Cycle back and ask them how big it is again. Chances are that it is now a little smaller. Continue down the pattern again and again. Usually, by the time they've done this four or five times, the headache is greatly diminished, or gone.
