Q. What is Irritable Bowel Syndrome IBS?
IBS is a condition that can include abdominal pain, intestinal spasms, bloating, diarrhoea and / or constipation. Symptoms can vary in intensity from relatively minor to very severe and will almost certainly affect your quality of daily life. Other symptoms can include tiredness, nausea, backache and bladder problems - such as passing urine frequently or experiencing a sense of urgency.

IBS is diagnosed by first ruling out any other potential problems - your doctor will offer you a blood test and may refer you to a specialist. If you are diagnosed with another intestinal disorder such as Crone's Disease or Colitis, there may be an element of IBS that could contribute to the severity of those symptoms.

Q. Will you be able to help me? 
I use the same treatment strategies that are being used in pioneering NHS clinics - with symptom reduction and improvement achieved in around 95% of cases. Usually, there is an immediate improvement after the 1st session, which continues and increases in subsequent sessions (typically 3 to 8 sessions to gain maximum benefit).

Additional Benefits from Hypnotherapy Treatment for IBS
Available advice for management of IBS includes changes in lifestyle, physical activity, diet and some medications, which can all help alleviate your symptoms.
When treated with hypnotherapy for IBS, it is likely that you will experience ' change for the better' in many other areas of your life, including:

  • Improved sleep patterns
  • Improved ability to deal with stress
  • A feeling of general wellbeing
  • A more positive attitude
  • Increased confidence
  • Reduction in anxiety in new situations

NICE (National Insitute for health and Clinical Excellence)* recommends hypnotherapy as part of the NHS stepped care plan for IBS treatment. As an approved practitioner using IBS41BS, I'm validated by the ICBCH (International Certification Board of Clinical Hypnotherapy)

Lose Weight supported by Hypnotherapy
Hypnosis suggestions about losing weight are effective because they change your relationship to food. You feel good about changing your behaviour and when this happens, the fat loss begins.  Weight loss is a gradual process, as the body will surrender fat of about 2-3 lbs per week, which is sensible, realistic and acheivable. While there is no need to over exercise or to starve yourself, you will simply change your relationship with food and with your body to a much healthier one and eat less and more healthily.
