Hypnotherapy for Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Anyone suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) may feel at times they are perhaps the only person who experiences this often distressing and embarrassing condition. However it is actually a very common disorder affecting up to 15% of the population. This fact does not of course make it any easier for the sufferer!

Whatever your symptoms of IBS, the good news is that there are many things you can do to help significantly reduce the negative symptoms and help you take back control of your life. I would always advise first consulting your GP to conduct a thorough investigation and diagnosis as some symptoms of IBS can be symptomatic of other gut-related conditions (perhaps requiring medication).

So how can hypnotherapy help?
Stress and anxiety are believed to be significant triggers for the development of IBS and therefore hypnotherapy for IBS mainly involves using relaxation exercises and using visualisations to help calm the internal and emotional responses and also help develop a greater sense of personal control.

What happens during the sessions?
At Christy Hypnotherapy I work with clients to address individual needs, as IBS can affect people in many different ways. IBS is a complex condition which requires a compassionate and confidential approach. Before the hypnotherapy begins every part of the client’s life will be assessed and a personalised treatment plan will then be discussed and put in place. The overall aim is to reduce stress and help the client to change their lives for the better.

National Stress Awareness Day - Wednesday 7th November 2012

The International Stress Management Association (ISMA) reports that according to recent research by Insurance Company AXA, stress levels have doubled in 4 years. It would seem to be true that we all live in a much more stressful world, not only with changes in the economy, technology and work, but also in our personal lives. The day to day running of work, family and social lives all piles on  the pressure and on top of this we have to deal with everyday problems and challenges. It's true that people deal with stress in different ways and everyone has their own level of stress which is 'manageable'… in fact some people thrive and are motivated by a certain level of stress in their lives. If this level remains at an optimum, all is well. The problems occur when this level tips over the optimum and becomes unmanageable.

Very often we are not in control of the stress around us and this is more and more evident in the workplace where stress can come as a result of redundancy, relationship conflicts between colleagues and increasing pressure on individuals to do 'more with less'. Infact issues from work are now one of the main causes of stress reported by patients to their GP.

The 14th National Stress Awareness Day, which is held to celebrate helping people to beat stress, will take place on 7 November 2012. This year the theme is "Defining Outcomes for Wellbeing at Work". The ISMA offers lots of advice about how companies can get involved to help their employees, including providing information about effective relaxation treatments and how to run stress awareness workshops. Of course, you don't have to wait around until the day itself, now is the time to start taking action yourself. Hypnotherapy can provide a wonderful way to relax both physically and mentally and can also help you find space in your life to be able to resolve issues which have perhaps tipped your stress levels over the edge.

To find out how hypnotherapy could help reduce stress in your life, contact Christy today on 01252 334377 or email:

Begin your New Years resolutions early - stop smoking for Christmas!

What would it be like if you could tell everyone that you began your New Years Resolutions early and stopped smoking for Christmas?!

Whilst we only have 7 full weeks until Christmas, it is entirely possible for you to stop smoking ready to enjoy a smoke-free (and cheaper!) Christmas. Think about how much money you will save in those few weeks in the run up to one of the most expensive times of the year, which you can then perhaps spend on presents for loved-ones, maybe save up for something special or even better to treat yourself?!

Christy offers an intensive stop smoking programme which includes 4 hypnotherapy sessions (conducted weekly at your convenience) and a personalised CD recording for you to use to help keep you relaxed and smoke-free into the future. Conducting hypnotherapy over a series of sessions works to ensure that the initial impact of the hypnosis to help you quit, lasts way beyond just the first session.

Contact Christy TODAY for a free 15 minute telephone consultation to discuss how hypnotherapy could help you make that resolution that changes your life forever! Call 01252 334377 or email:
