Gut Directed Hypnotherapy for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)


Are you seeking to take control of your IBS symptoms? Are you fed up with the cramps, the rushes to the loo, the limitations to your social life? Gut directed clinical hypnotherapy is proven to give you welcome and long-term relief from the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

How does gut-directed hypnotherapy work?

Hypnotherapy, combining clinical hypnosis with a Solution Focused approach, is particularly effective to lift the physiological and psychological symptoms of IBS because it deals directly with the subconscious and makes good therapeutic use of the mind-body connection

Together we can manage your IBS symptoms without drugs or diets and turn things around in just 8 weeks using strategies such as:

  • Hypnosis uses positive gut metaphors whilst in deep relaxation to soothe the oversensitive gut itself, calming the reactivity, enhancing a healthy digestive functioning, and decreasing pain

  • Gut directed self-hypnosis, a powerful creative visualisation technique, help continued self-care between sessions

  • Hypnotherapy helps you to relax, easing the symptoms if they are triggered by stress

  • Solution Focused therapy helps you to focus on how you want things to be, thus encouraging in a new, positive reaction to stress triggers and greater coping abilities.

  • Studies* have shown hypnotherapy provides long-lasting results, which continue to improve even after treatment has finished.

Benefits of gut-directed hypnotherapy:

✔    Enjoying social life again, including drinking and eating out

✔    Significant and lifechanging reduction of pain, cramps and other physical symptoms


✔    No more anxiety about the symptoms


✔    Return to work or school


✔    Less time off work and less GP consultations for IBS and non-colonic symptoms

✔    Increased effectiveness and enjoyment at work, in sports and in hobbies


✔    Significant improvement to your overall quality of life

IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) is one of the outstanding success stories in clinical hypnotherapy. NHS research proves hypnosis offers an excellent likelihood of giving you welcome and long-term relief for this extremely unpleasant condition.
