By its nature, irritable bowel syndrome, (IBS) may lead to anxiety and even depression. Combined with stress management and dietary awareness, hypnotherapy is a recommended approach to the treatment of IBS by The National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE 2008). Book an appointment at Finlayson Hypnosis in central London and get help from an experienced hypnotherapist.
IBS is less commonly referred to as mucous colitis or spastic colon. The exact cause of IBS is not known but it is a condition that continues for many years and affects many aspects of the sufferer’s life. Patients experience a range of symptoms that vary from mild to severe in intensity. The anxiety and depression caused by IBS also serve to exacerbate symptoms.
