Hypnotherapy for IBS Wolverhampton
Hypnotherapy for IBS Symptoms in Wolverhampton & West Midlands
IBS stands for Irritable Bowel Syndrome which is a condition linked most closely with stress and anxiety. Hypnotherapy is considered to be an excellent method for helping people to overcome the symptoms of IBS with some medical practitioners suggesting that it should be available on the NHS – you can read about Dr. Roland Volari’s view about hypnotherapy and IBS on the BBC website here.
There are a number of different forms of Hypnotherapy for IBS available here at Tranceform Psychology, including Hypnoanalysis and clinical hypnotherapy for IBS. Joan is our resident hypnotherapist here in the Wombourne clinic having qualified in 2011. Since then she has also qualified as a specialist paediatric hypnotherapist, BWRT therapist and has passed numerous advanced courses of psychotherapy through the Essex Institute.
Why Hypnotherapy for IBS?
Hypnotherapy for IBS related problems has become more and more popular over the last 20 years as people become reluctant to take medications that are prescribed to them. There also continues to be a growth in the interest of complementary therapies, such as hypnotherapy for IBS as confidence in the psychiatric models of ‘illness’ (what they describe as disorders) continues to attract criticism, not least from the psychological sector which considers problems like IBS to be ‘normal life-course emotions’.
Today, hypnotherapy is supported by scientific evidence that shows how helpful this complementary therapy can be and hypnotherapy for IBS is no exception.
However, Hypnotherapy for IBS is NOT a ‘magical cure’ and cannot help your problem without you being fully engaged in the process and also having a high willingness to help yourself. In this respect, Hypnotherapy for IBS is a ‘treatment’ that helps YOU to help YOURSELF rather than being the solution to the problem itself.
Hypnosis is very relaxing and provides a high degree of self-insight, most people find that just being able to relax more is a significant part of getting better. The more relaxed you become, the easier you will find it to solve your IBS problems.
What Happens in the Hypnotherapy Sessions?
Hypnotherapy for IBS normally involves a number of sessions which are held weekly. We suggest that most people will get the best results from a course of sessions, the number of which will depend on how long you have had your specific problem.
If your IBS problems are only relatively recent, then 3 or 4 sessions of hypnotherapy for IBS may be all you need. On the other hand if you have been living with this problem for many years, you are more likely to need a greater number of sessions in order to break the ‘habitual’ element.
The process of hypnotherapy we use in the clinic involves you sitting comfortably in one of our therapy chairs whilst you listen to Joan’s voice. She will discuss with you the specific situations or the triggers that lead to your IBS problems. This will allow her to develop the most appropriate metaphors and suggestions to help you to deal with any negative feelings and to help you cope with the symptoms more effectively.
Over the course of the hypnotherapy for IBS sessions you will explore previous experiences that may have led to negative feelings and you will learn to develop a range of coping mechanisms.
At Tranceform Psychology Joan uses an audio system called the “Hypno-Com” which allows her to talk to you through a headphone and microphone system whilst blending relaxing music into the background. The Hypno-Com system helps to create a highly effective therapeutic environment that assists the treatment.
How Many Sessions of Hypnotherapy for IBS will I Need?
Whilst it’s impossible to be prescriptive about the number of sessions required, people often find that 6 to 12 sessions of hypnotherapy for IBS leads to feeling much more in control of your IBS.
Hypnotherapy is available on a session-by-session basis and we also offer a range of pre-paid courses saving money over single session prices. View our fees pages for more information.
