Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is both physically uncomfortable and embarrassing. It is a condition that can lead to avoidance behaviours, such as a reluctance to go out socially or apprehension at the thought of travelling. I only accept clients who have received a prior diagnosis of IBS from their GP as there are a number of serious conditions that appear with the same symptoms as IBS which must be ruled out beforehand.

IBS can be sub-categorised as follows

  • IBS-C - Constipation form of IBS
  • IBS-D - Diarrhoea form of IBS
  • IBS-A - IBS which Alternates between constipation and diarrhoea

All 3 categories of IBS respond well to Hypnotherapy. However, there are other options that can be successful such as anti-spasmodics and increased consumption of soluble fibres (such as oats). Probiotics also appear to benefit IBS sufferes, though users report decrease in symptoms rather than cure.
