Like many IBS sufferers, you've probably had numerous medical tests, tried cutting out gluten, diary and other foods, taken medications, costly supplements, but nothing has worked. I hear you!
Gut Directed Hypnotherapy is evidence based, with a 70-80% success rate in alleviating symptoms of IBS.
Do you long for a scientifically proven approach that can relieve your discomfort and restore your well-being, without restrictive diets or medication?
If you're tired of trying to work it all out without much success, I can help you get back living your life again.
The Gut Harmony IBS Program uses a combination of gut directed hypnotherapy and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), which are the two psychological therapies with the greatest evidence and long term efficacy recommended for IBS.
Gut directed hypnotherapy alleviates symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) by helping you reset the miscommunication between your gut and your brain.
Gut directed hypnotherapy is a specialised form of hypnosis that is designed to treat functional gut disorders like IBS. Unlike traditional hypnosis, this therapy targets the communication between your mind and gut, helping to improve gut function, reduce symptoms, and enhance overall well-being.
How Does it Work?
During a session you are gently guided into a relaxed state and given specific suggestions to your subconscious mind. These suggestions are designed to improve the communication between your brain and gut, reduce stress and anxiety, and promote healthy gut function. You'll remain in control throughout the entire session, you will simply feel relaxed and can stop the therapy at any time.
How effective is it?
Research shows a greater than 70% reduction in symptoms such as nausea, abdominal pain, gas and bloating, without making any dietary changes.
What if my symptoms return?
Long term studies show that the beneficial effects of gut directed hypnotherapy are maintained for at least five years. If symptoms return, you can book a follow up session to restore the positive results.
Is it safe?
Yes, it is very safe, low risk and 100% natural.
What is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for IBS?
CBT focuses on changing your negative patterns of thinking and behaviour that can contribute to IBS symptoms. It is based on the idea that how we think and behave can affect our physical symptoms, including those related to IBS.
How does CBT for IBS work?
I will work with you to identify and challenge negative thoughts and beliefs about your IBS, as well as to develop more helpful ways of coping with stress and anxiety. This includes relaxation techniques, problem-solving skills, and other strategies to manage symptoms.
Why combine CBT with hypnotherapy?
CBT and gut directed hypnotherapy are the two leading psychological treatments for IBS. My program uses a combination of both therapies so clients achieve optimal results.
The program combines both hypnotherapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to correct the faulty miscommunication between your gut and your brain.
Over 7 sessions I will work with you to:
NOTE: A referral is not required to commence the program, however it is important that you have been medically diagnosed with IBS prior to starting the program. This is to ensure your symptoms are not caused by a more severe illness.
