IBS can prevent you from living a normal live for fear of a flare up, worrying about getting to the toilet, embarrassment, and increased anxiety. There is evidence to suggest that these symptoms are often caused or made worse by stressful situations.
Hypnotherapy as been endorsed by The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) as an effective way for treating IBS, working alongside the medications provided by your GP.
Hypnotherapy teaches you effective method to help reduce your stress levels, and this then reduces the symptoms associated with irritable bowel syndrome. This gives you tools to be able to cope day to day with your symptoms. This means you are in control, rather than IBS controlling you.
