Many people live with the debiliting symptoms of IBS - constipation, diarrhoea, bloating, nausea, headache, belching, poor appetite, tiredness, backache, muscle pains, feeling quickly 'full' after eating and heartburn.

Situations such as family problems, work stress, exams, etc, may trigger symptoms of IBS in some people. Being anxious may make it difficult to control the symptoms.

For Irritable Bowel Syndrome, one of hypnotherapy's greatest benefits is its well-established ability to reduce the effects of stress. Your state of mind can have a direct impact on your physical well-being, even when you're in the best of health. If you're struggling with IBS, the tension, anxiety, and depression that comes from living with an incurable illness can actually undermine your immune system and further compromise your health.

Hypnotherapy can reduce this stress and its resultant negative impact by placing you in a deeply relaxed state, promoting positive thoughts and coping strategies, and clearing your mind of negative attitudes.

My IBS programme comprises of 6 sessions, over an 11-12 week period and is supported by the use of 5 very relaxing recordings to listen to at home, between appointments.

You can find out more about studies of IBS and Hypnotherapy on the BBC website.

The initial session will take approx 90 minutes and then subsequent sessions will last between 50 - 70 mins. Each session costs £90.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like to book an appointment.

Client Comments...

The best thing I ever did was phone up Fiona. I had really bad IBS and would have panic attacks every morning on the train to work, and would a lot of times get off the train halfway to work so I could use the loo - not anymore - I do not dread my daily commute any longer - it is a huge relief. I also used to worry when I was booking flights and theatre tickets and was not able to get an aisle seat. I am so glad I went it has made a huge difference to my life and for that I am extremely grateful. Thanks so much.
