Whilst the precise causes of Irritable Bowel Syndrome are not known, experts suggest that it could be triggered by a variety of things such as particular types of food, hormones and stress. It may also be a combination of the these. It is generally agreed within the medical profession that whilst the precise causes of Irritable Bowel Syndrome IBS are not known it is widely accepted that psychological issues such as stress and anxiety do play a major part in triggering the symptoms.
Major life events such as death of a loved one, the break up of a marriage, moving home or losing your job are major stressors that could be a contributory factor to IBS symptoms
How can hypnotherapy help my IBS Irritable Bowel?..
The root cause of a person's stress may be deep seated at some point in the past, hidden within their subconscious mind. Hypnotherapy can uncover deep-rooted childhood issues that, even though many years have passed since the occurrence of these situations, still cause anxiety in the present day.
IBS sufferers are typically perfectionists, having a fear of failure, setting themselves extremely high standards and constantly needing to be aware of what others think of them.
The therapy itself...
I am a great believer in Self Hypnosis with the client being taught on the first session how to take themselves in and out of hypnosis. Once in this state of relaxation, the effects of stress on the body will be reduced. Typically, the heart rate will be slowed and blood pressure will be reduced and muscles will become relaxed.
Hypnosis is a natural state, very relaxing but with a very and focused state of mind. It is my belief that by teaching Self Hypnosis, even clients who have been unable to be hypnotised previously, the fact that they are in control allows them to enter a deep relaxing trance.
The root cause of this underlying stress now needs to be identified and interpreted. Regression Hypnotherapy aids this process and allows a client to begin processing this information once out of hypnosis. Follow up sessions gradually unlock hidden childhood memories and visualisation techniques begin to reprogram the subconscious, modifying this negative data.
