Are you becoming housebound because you might have an IBS attack?
Are you finding the longer you put up with Irritable Bowel Syndrome the more difficult it becomes to manage?
At our Melbourne Psychotherapy Clinic we use proven hypnotherapy or counselling techniques to treat this debilitating syndrome.
You may be one of 15% of Australians who suffer from an irritable bowel. The most common symptoms are bowel disorders, chronic abdominal pain & discomfort, bloating, frequent constipation and diarrhoea. As you are probably aware, this embarrassing and uncomfortable problem can inhibit your quality of life and affect your relationships at work and home. You may even be avoiding social occasions because you are worried you won't be able to get to a bathroom in time.
Because irritable bowel can have a number of causes, finding the right treatment can be difficult. This means drug related irritable bowel syndrome treatments often don't work or become very expensive. On the other hand, hypnotherapy has proved to be a successful treatment in up to 80% of IBS sufferers.

It is well-established that hypnotherapy reduces the stress levels and stress itself is a major contributor to IBS. Stress causes more tension and anxiety and further undermines your immune system and affects your health. It is crucial you learn how to break this vicious cycle. During hypnotherapy, you learn how to gain control of your symptoms by changing your thought patterns around your anxiety and digestive activity. The bonus with hypnotherapy is there is no structural damage to the body and no drug side effects.
We know it takes courage to request help. So taking the first step by making an appointment is very important. Call our hypnotherapists now on (03) 9557 9113 - You will find our approach non-judgemental and caring.
A major contributing factor to your IBS is your anxiety about it. As with insomnia and worry, the more you resist, the more symptoms persist. The most effective way to begin to control the problem is to manage the associated fear. To help you with this we use Mindfulness Therapy which can help to calm your mind, increase your sense of inner peace, autonomy and control and settle your digestive system.
How long it will take depends
- The length of time you need to get your IBS under control will depend on how deeply rooted the problem is.
- Your willingness to work through the issues that are contributing to your unsettled bowels are important in determining the length of your treatment.
- The number of sessions can be estimated once we discover all the contributing factors and issues, and just how committed you are to changing your mind habits and regaining control.
- Usually after one or two sessions it is possible to estimate the extent to which the therapy is working.
Our Hypnotherapists Treat You as an Individual
Because everyone is different, our therapy is flexible and draws on a wide array of tools in a combination of therapies including counselling, psychotherapy, hypnotherapy (traditional and Ericksonian methods), NLP and Buddhist psychotherapy. Our unique blend of Eastern and Western methods allows us to treat your specific problems. Research has shown improvement usually begins to occur quite early on in therapy, but long term change requires more of a commitment. In the majority of cases people make huge life changes from managing IBS.
