Hypnotherapy for IBS
IBS is a very common condition that affects the digestive system. Symptoms can include bloating, abdominal pain, cramping, gas, diarrhoea, constipation (or a mixture of diarrhoea and constipation) and changes in bowel movements.
As many as 1 in 5 people have symptoms of IBS and it can have a significant impact on day-to-day life.
Many of my clients have tried different medications and lifestyle interventions with little to no success and have all but given up on getting their life back. But hypnotherapy for IBS can be very successful in reducing the impact of symptoms.
Women are believed to be more likely to suffer from IBS. This may be linked to hormonal factors. Oestrogen can encourage the gut to be more sensitive and IBS symptoms can be worse at certain stages of the menstrual cycle,
How Hypnotherapy Can Improve IBS
IBS hypnotherapy is an effective intervention and is recognised by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE). If you have IBS symptoms that haven’t responded to medications within 12 months, hypnotherapy is often recommended as a treatment. Even if you haven’t seen any success with other treatment options, IBS hypnotherapy will often be successful. This is the case with many of my clients!
Why does hypnotherapy have so much potential for improving IBS symptoms? It helps to reduce stress, which can make a big difference to IBS symptoms. By allowing the mind and body to relax, hypnotherapy can help change the gutbrain connection and decrease symptoms. During hypnotherapy, the aim is to change the signals from the brain so that gut function also shifts.

Frequently asked questions about sessions
Your initial consultation will generally last for 45 minutes. This is a chance for us to talk about how you’re currently feeling and how hypnotherapy can help – including a detailed and easy-to-understand explanation of how the brain works, why it’s led to you feeling low, and why Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can change your brain to feel differently.
Once we start to have hypnotherapy sessions, you can expect each one to last 50-60 minutes.
We will discuss this during the initial consultation as the average number of sessions can vary between clients.
