IBS is a condition that causes repeated abdominal pain and frequent discomfort. Both, children and adults, can be affected by it. IBS can severely impact a person’s life. Stressful experiences have the potential to trigger abdominal pain in people. People who suffer with IBS are likely to experience symptoms repeatedly. Often, they are in a constant state of stress which obviously influences the body.
And then of course there are people who have unresolved issues from there past. Working with suppressed emotions, and often we are not aware that we have them, can make a significant difference to the body and so improve the daily life of a person dealing with IBS on a regular basis.
In hypnotherapy we can use a mix of approaches to improve the quality of life. This can be done by helping the client to re-learn how to calm the mind or how to ignore it, by working on any emotional causes that may off-set symptoms and by using suggestions and if possible, visualizations.
