Irritable Bowel Syndrome

IBS and hypnotherapy

Hypnosis is known to reduce symptoms of IBS.

Just imagine waking up without Irritable Bowel Syndrome tomorrow, free of pain or anxiety or the need to be close to a bathroom. It may seem impossible right now, but you’d be amazed if you had had the same experience as the people I have treated with IBS in the role that hypnosis can play in eliminating symptoms of IBS.

IBS is debilitating illness and affects many people very differently. But did you know that hypnotherapy is regarded as a key therapy in improving the quality of life of people suffering from IBS? And that rates of success with treating IBS using hypnosis are very high.

Hypnotherapy is a well researched and documented therapy – in fact a study published in the Lancet in 1987 showed that there was a 95% success rate with people suffering from classic IBS.

The current NICE (National Institute of Clinical Excellence) recognise hypnotherapy as being as valuable a therapy as other psychological treatments such as CBT.

Why does hypnotherapy work so well with IBS?

  • It is one of the most successful treatment approaches for chronic IBS. The response rate to treatment is 80% and better in most published studies to date.
  • The treatment will often you if you have failed to get improvements with other method.
  • It is a very comfortable and relaxing treatment – clients leave having enjoyed the treatment.
  • It gives the power and control back to the client and has no negative side effects.
  • The treatment sometimes results in improvement in other symptoms or problems such as migraine or tension headaches, along with the improvement in IBS symptoms.
  • The beneficial effects of the treatment last long after the end of the course of treatment.

A course of treatment of IBS consists of suggestion therapy, analysis, CDs to take away. A course of treatment is usually 4-6 hour long sessions, depending on the individual client.

Clients we have worked with have had life changing experiences, after suffering with IBS for long periods of time and can hardly believe the changes that take place.
