Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) affects one person in five and is the world’s most common functional gastrointestinal disorder. Symptoms include abdominal pain, abdominal bloating, diarrhoea or constipation. *

Hypnotherapy is a recommended treatment by The National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE). Studies by Professor Peter Whorwell at the University of Manchester School of Medicine demonstrated that hypnotherapy was effective across all the symptoms of IBS. Sufferers learnt how to influence and gain control of their gut function with a 70% success rate.**

*If you think you may have IBS, first visit your doctor to get their diagnosis and advice.

How Can Hypnotherapy Help?

Hypnotherapy can help you to manage stress and anxiety in a more solution focused way.

Hypnotherapy helps promote your well-being and creates chemicals that can ease stress and anxiety levels and in turn reduce sensitivity in the gut.

IBS can be exacerbated by stress and anxiety and then worrying about the IBS and related symptoms creates more stress – a vicious circle. I help you to learn coping strategies and tools to reduce and eliminate this negative cycle.
