IBS Irritable Bowel Syndrome - Clinical Hypnotherapy

Sometimes referred to as gut hypnotherapy

“Hypnosis may be an effective, long-term therapy for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), according to a new study.

IBS Irritable Bowel SyndromeThe findings of the survey were reported in Gut, a specialist publication of the British Medical Association. Research was carried out over six years and involved more than 200 patients.

Around 71 percent of patients said that hypnotherapy successfully improved their condition, with positive effects that lasted up to 5 years. Many also found that hypnosis significantly helped to reduce levels of anxiety and depression associated with the condition.

IBS is a common but little understood disorder of the digestive tract. It is characterised by a number of common symptoms including recurrent abdominal pains, constipation or diarrhoea.”

I went to see Wendy when I was feeling very low and very negative about everything including myself. On top of that I have also suffered with Irritable bowel problems for a long time. Wendy was very supportive and made me feel at ease and I knew at once that I could trust her. I had just three sessions with her and I can honestly say that it has made a huge difference in how I perceive things. In fact my family has commented that my language has changed to being a glass “half full” instead of always “half empty.” This was not a conscious effort on my part, it just happened. I have also found that my IBS is much more under control too. I am really looking forward to the future now and view everything in a much more positive way.
