Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy for IBS

Amanda Tooms has been a member of the Southcote team since September and is delighted to add CBH for IBS as a service that she offers at Southcote.

  • Do you suffer from IBS?

  • Are you fed up with feeling bloated?

  • Are you in pain after eating certain foods?

  • Does it impact your mood?

  • Do you feel uncomfortable most of the time?

  • Do you avoid certain situations?

  • Do these symptoms sound familiar?

  • Do you wish you could feel better?

IBS is common and research shows that 1 in 5 people in the UK develops IBS at some stage in their life.

So, what causes IBS?

In short, a combination of complex factors.  One of the most recent clinical findings is the gut-brain connection.  How we think, feel, and behave can have a profound impact on what we experience physically.  What this means without being too clinical, is that we essentially have two brains, one in the head and one in the gut – and yes, they are very much connected. A transport system carrying cargo from A to B and B to A!
