Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common, long-term condition of the digestive system. It can cause bouts of stomach cramps, bloating, diarrhoea and/or constipation.The symptoms vary between individuals and affect some people more severely than others. They tend to come and go in periods lasting a few days to a few months at a time, often during times of stress or after eating certain foods.
The sensation of pain and discomfort in the digestive system, although physical , may also be compounded by stress and how we respond to it, how we feel about it and how we manage it. For example, most people with IBS will recognise that they have good days and bad days. This may of course be related to your diet and your activity, but it may also be because of how you were thinking and feeling on the good and bad days.
Hypnotherapy in conjunction with cognitive behaviourial therapy (CBT) can work well for people with both physical, emotional and psychosomatic pain, as it addresses how we view our pain in terms of how we think about it, how we feel about it and, last but not least, how we behave and manage it. For example, the more you focus on pain, or the more stressed, the more it appears to increase.
An assessment will clarify how I can support you in managing your IBS to the best effect.
