Hypnotherapy for IBS

Listed as a recommended treatment by The National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE), hypnotherapy has been shown to have a 75 to 90% long term success rate.

Dr Peter Whorwell was perhaps the first to properly exploit and study the effectiveness of Hypnotherapy as a treatment for IBS when setting up a Centre at the Withington Hospital in Manchester. More locally Dr Roland Valori, Consultant Gastroenterologist at the Gloucestershire Royal Hospital and editor of Frontline Gastroenterology, said of the first 100 of his patients treated with hypnotherapy, symptoms improved significantly for nine out of ten of them.

Hypnotherapy is effective. Results may vary and success is not guaranteed. Full client commitment is important and the client will want to make changes.
