Treating IBS

What Is Gut-Directed Hypnotherapy?

GDH is an evidence-based treatment specifically designed to help treat the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome.

Prof Peter Whorwell is a Professor of Medicine and Gastroenterology at the University of Manchester in the UK and directs a unit with a wide-ranging research program into the clinical, epidemiological, and pathophysiological aspects of functional gastrointestinal disorders.  Prof Peter Whorwell found when he treated his patience with hypnotherapy to help them relax he had surprising results,  his patient’s symptoms improved up to 70%.

Prof Whorwell undertook research trials to confirm his findings. His results not only showed an improvement in patient colonic symptoms but also hypnotherapy helped with anxiety, depression, and their overall quality of life.

What To Expect

The treatment program consists of  6 weekly hypnotherapy sessions.

I will introduce you to hypnotherapy, what it is and how it will help and answer any questions you may have.

We will spend time talking about IBS, how it affects you, what helps, and your expectations of having hypnotherapy. Hypnotherapy is a client-focused therapy so this part is very important to me.

We will talk about the gut-brain connection. Hypnotherapy targets the source of the problem which is the oversensitive nerves in the gut.

Hypnotherapy helps retrain the gut-brain connection to help reduce the misfiring nerves before they reach the brain.

I will teach you breathing exercises and self-hypnosis an important part of the process.

We will end the session with trance, and my hope is for you to leave my therapy room feeling relaxed and hopeful for your future.

Session one 90 minutes £80

Future Sessions 1-hour £60
