IBS Research

A child based IBS study compared the effectiveness of six sessions of hypnotherapy plus six sessions of other supportive therapy over 12 weeks with results from standard medical IBS therapy in children with functional abdominal pain for IBS. 53 children ranging in age from 8 to 18 years, with functional abdominal pain (31patients) or IBS (22 patients), were randomly assigned to either IBS hypnotherapy or the comparison IBS treatment. Compared to the other group the IBS hypnotherapy group showed significantly greater reduction of abdominal pain, bloating, diarrhea, bowel problems, constipation other bowel symptoms and hugely increased overall wellbeing. At one-year follow-up the IBS treatment was judged successful for 85% of the IBS hypnotherapy group. -Source: Gastroenterology 2007 Nov;133(5):1430-6.

Clinical Hypnotherapy

What is it?

It is essentially a platform that a therapist works on to induce a trance state which will allow them to directly work with the unconscious (subconscious) mind. You are awake at all times and in control so there's nothing to fear. We experience trance states daily, they are a natural state of being. Ever wondered how you managed to drive from one place to another without being consciously aware of driving? This is a natural state and it's your unconscious competence that has taken over, you were on auto pilot.

Why use hypnotherapy?

The unconscious mind has built in programs and they are created by us over time through our experiences. These programs influence our behaviours and become habits. In science they are called neural pathways and are like well worn paths in the brain.  Hypnotherapy can assist in building new neural pathways when the old ones simply do not work for us anymore. Neuroscience has proven that the unconscious mind is best reprogrammed at the Alpha 7.5-14Hz brain waves and the Theta 4.7-5Hz brain waves, which hypnosis can produce whilst in the waking state.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming 

Basically, NLP is a series of techniques used to promote wellbeing and positive self empowerment. They have been taken and modelled from those who are at the top of their game, the best in their field. In NLP we look at how your experience of the world is interpreted through your thoughts, language and behavioural patterns. Through the use of the techniques new neural pathways are built and old belief systems are pulled down. Working with hypnotherapy, NLP is an invaluable tool as the therapist and client are now working on the conscious and unconscious levels.
