Irritable Bowel Syndrome
These very real symptoms can bring misery to many sufferers. Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is on the increase, but the good news is that a combination of Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy is now being recognised as the most effective treatment for this disorder and routinely produces long-term positive results in over 80% of cases. As a member of the Register of Approved Gastrointestinal Psychotherapists and Hypnotherapists (RAGHP), I have received specialist training in various powerful techniques to help you to control your symptoms and, in many cases, eradicate them completely, bringing you peace of mind and a greater sense of general well-being.
For IBS, one of the greatest benefits of hypnotherapy and psychotherapy is its well-established ability to reduce the effects of stress. Your state of mind can have a direct impact on your physical well-being, even when you are in the best of health. If you are struggling with IBS, the tension, anxiety, and depression that comes from living with such a debilitating disorder can actually undermine your immune system and further compromise your health.
Hypnotherapy and psychotherapy combined with CBT & EFT works to reduce this stress and its resultant negative impact, promoting positive thoughts and coping strategies, and clearing your mind of negative attitudes.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome is well suited to treatment by hypnotherapy and psychotherapy, for several reasons. First, stress-related attacks can be significantly reduced. Second, one of the most impressive aspects from hypnotherapy, and of great benefit to IBS sufferers, is its well-documented ability to relieve virtually all types and degrees of pain. Finally, because IBS is not a disease at all but a syndrome, if you can relieve and prevent the symptoms, you have effectively cured yourself of the disorder, and you can live the life you desire - an IBS free life! Extensive research highlights that this outcome is highly probable from hypnotherapy and psychotherapy treatments without any risk of side effects.
During treatment, you will learn to reduce anxiety and to reduce the negative thought patterns which trigger your IBS. We will address the thoughts which create and stimulate the symptoms of IBS and I will teach you ways to control the speed of the peristalsis (movement of your digestive system) allowing a more normal bowel movement. You will also learn ways to reduce or eliminate pain and discomfort caused by IBS. You will release unhelpful thought patterns that have been triggering or maintaining your IBS symptoms and develop new enhancing positive thought patterns. As part of the process, I will help you to feel physically relaxed, mentally calmer and so much more confident in yourself so very quickly you will notice that many other areas of your life improve too!.
Please note: If you are suffering from IBS like symptoms, you should discuss your symptoms with your G.P. first so that a full medical assessment can be made. Diagnosis of IBS should be confirmed by a qualified medical practitioner. Do not self diagnose
