Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Irritable Bowel Syndrome is a common condition that affects the digestive system. It causes symptoms such as stomach cramps, bloating, diarrhoea and constipation.

Whilst the exact cause is unknown, in almost all cases the symptoms can be related to long term stress, anxiety, or some family-related problem.

In the initial review, we will examine when your symptoms first appeared, what exacerbates them, the severity of the symptoms and the impact on your life. We will also look at previous treatment, current medication, and any warning signs and related problems.

In my experience people with IBS respond rapidly to hypnotherapy. Whilst a few sessions are all that are normally required, continual self-hypnosis is advised.
