Hypnotherapy and IBS

Uncomfortable and debilitating an estimated 10 to 20% of the population in the UK are suffering from IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome).

IBS can prevent people from carrying out simple tasks such as long car journeys, avoiding public transport, attending social events and causing discomfort on a regular basis.

Because of cultural taboo surrounding toilet habits it’s a subject that not many people want to discuss and so IBS not only creates physical discomfort but emotional too.

By messages between the brain and gut becoming disrupted this then creates issues within the digestive track leading to pain, bloating and bowel changes.  It is also known that high levels of stress increase symptoms further impacting the lives of those who suffer.

As well as medication cutting out dairy, gluten, spices, trying supplements can also be an option.  With IBS patients often struggling with a range of treatments, finding a consistently effective approach can be challenging.

There is growing evidence supporting the efficacy of hypnosis for patients suffering with IBS.  With solution focused hypnotherapy keeping up to date with the latest research in neuroscience its effectiveness against both standard and psychological treatments is potential as a go-to solution.

By the use of suggestion, imagery techniques and progressive relaxation hypnotherapy guides the client into a sense of calm soothing their symptoms restoring the gut brain communication and improving overall well-being.  The power of the mind is truly limitless.

Welcome to my new website

I am delighted to launch my new website offering Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (SFH) in person at premises in both Bolton and Ramsbottom, Greater Manchester.   I also offer online appointments via zoom for clients across the UK and further afield.

SFH can help with a wide range of issues you would like to change in your life in a relatively short period of time, from getting better sleep to low mood from relaxation to improved confidence.   With a keen interest in stress, anxiety and PTSD.  I also offer various programmes and workshops for the menopause, weight management and relaxation.

Unlike most other therapies SFH focuses on the solution and not the problem, rather than ruminating over what has happened and what hasn’t worked clients are helped to identify what their lives would look and feel like by bringing about positive change.

So often we are tackling or ignoring how we are feeling creating inner conflict which can then affect a large number of other aspects of our life.  Moving away from negative language and encouraging positive solution language we focus on the what’s been good. By setting achievable goals you then begin to work towards the solutions by finding out what works for you as you are best placed to identify your preferred future.

By making positive changes this then increases your self-confidence, self-esteem and motivation which has a profound impact on improving your coping ability.  By making these changes it enables you to move forward positively by focusing on the present and future where your problem doesn’t exist.  You are then able to gain control, enjoy your life and accomplish your personal goals quickly and with long term results. What is it that Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help you with?
