Do you suffer from stomach cramps, bloating, constipation and/or diarrhoea? Do you feel that you can never stray too far from toilet facilities? If so, you may have Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). The cause of IBS is not clear but it is known that it can be triggered by certain foodstuffs as well as being aggravated by stress.
With Solution Focused Hypnotherapy we work together to reduce your anxiety and stress: research has shown that this approach can be effective in reducing the severity of IBS symptoms which is why the National Institute for Health and Care Guidelines (NICE) state:
“There is moderately good evidence for the effectiveness of hypnotherapy in improving global symptoms in adults with irritable bowel syndrome. The use of hypnotherapy may be an effective intervention in children with chronic constipation that has not resolved with usual treatment and may offer an additional approach which works.”
In addition, a recent study, Hypnotherapy for IBS looks convincing for in Randomised Trials (https://www.facebook.com/AfSFH/posts/1553343471371012) backs up these findings.
