IBS – connecting mind and body

Hypno-psychotherapy for Irritable Bowel Syndrome recognises that the digestive tract is often the first organ to react when you are under stress, anxious, angry or depressed. In these instances, digestion is disrupted, causing the pain and discomfort common to IBS.

Hypno-psychotherapy has two approaches. Firstly it can help you to address and manage negative feelings that may be behind your IBS. Secondly you will learn powerful visualisations and pain management techniques to help you alleviate your symptoms on a daily basis.

Hypnosis has been recommended as an effective treatment for IBS by the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE). All techniques are based on the research and teachings practised by leading gastroenterologist Professor P. Whorwell at South Manchester Hospital. Phoebe Weiland has specialist IBS training given by medical professionals at the London College of Clinical Hypnosis.
