Hypnotherapy is widely promoted for the treatment of IBS and other chronic illnesses. The National Institution for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) supports its use for IBS and according to Cancer Research UK, most patients say they've had a positive experience with hypnotherapy. Chronic illnesses not only affect the person physically but can cause their life to be limited for a number of reasons such as fear of experiencing the symptoms, experiencing pain and discomfort. Hypnotherapy can help you manage your symptoms, especially if other behavioural techniques are utilised. It can also help you to gain confidence in a variety of situations and empower you, so your life is less limited by your illness.
It is also possible for me to liaise with other health care professionals involved in your care to provide an holistic approach to treatment, thus improving overall care.
