IBS

Updated: Jul 1

From the clients I speak with, some people explained that their quality of life has been damaged by the symptoms or effects of this syndrome. These could be one or some of the following:


Physical

Pain

Diarrhoea

Constipation

Wind/Flatulence

Bloating

Fatigue/tiredness


Mental/Social

Social anxiety

Social isolation

Depression

Restricted food choices

Relationships

Sharing information

Taboos


Hypnotherapy is now recognised as a form of clinical management for people experiencing IBS by the National Institute of Clinical Excellence, (NICE). NICE ensures that practitioners and commissioners get the best care to patients, fast while ensuring value for the taxpayer.


If you are having the physical symptoms above, I would recommend that you see your GP if you have not done so already before we start the sessions. If you are diagnosed with IBS your GP will talk to you about what it is and what the treatment options are. A GP may refer you to a dietician, to advise on nutrients and diet or foods to avoid. If you have had IBS for a long time and nothing is working for you, you may be referred to NHS talking therapies or an alternative such as hypnotherapy. Although hypnotherapy is part of the NICE guidelines for the management of IBS, it is unusual to have this provided by the NHS, so in some cases will need to be funded privately.


What would you expect working with me?


We will have six sessions which are aimed to support you whilst you manage your symptoms of IBS. It is not intended as an alternative to the care you receive from your medical advisors, but an addition to your care. Some surgeries offer group sessions for people periodically, which works out cheaper, please enquire at your surgery.
