IBS is a very common condition affecting the digestive system and unfortunately the exact cause is not fully understood. The physical symptoms of IBS vary considerably and can include bloating, abdominal pain, back pain, diarrhoea, backache, nausea and indigestion, from the mild to the debilitating. There are the emotional and mental issues to consider too.


We do know that diet, lifestyle  and exercise have their benefits but  irrespective of what is happening in the gastrointestinal tract and the lifestyle changes you make, stress and anxiety have an distinct and often a profound influence on the frequency and severity of IBS .If left unchecked the  spiralling of conditions can lead to depression, social isolation and can greatly affect the quality of life.


The use of solution focused hypnotherapy greatly reduces stress and anxiety, which are known triggers of IBS and also the perception and sensitivity to pain as the mind is calmed and more relaxed.SFH also provides tools to help the sufferer cope better and to lead a more effective life.

Solution  Focused Hypnotherapy has been proven to be effective in the treatment and alleviation of the symptoms of IBS.
