Hypnotherapists and trainees

Gut-directed hypnosis (GDH) addresses the 'miscommunication' between the brain and gut. A trained therapist guides a person into a focused state of awareness while feeling deeply relaxed. This approach uses hypnosis, suggestion, guided imagery and relaxation to produce a therapeutic effect.

People with IBS present with varying symptom profiles, most commonly 'diarrhoea predominant', 'constipation predominant' or alternating symptom profiles. IBS most often affects people between the ages of 20 and 30 years and is twice as common in women as in men. Prevalence in the general population is estimated to be between 10% and 20%. Recent trends indicate that there is also a significant prevalence of IBS in older people.

The aims of both CBT and hypnotherapy are to enable self-reliance for the sufferer and could enable them to take back control of their own body.

Train to use Gut Directed Hypnotherapy with your clients. This one-day CPD for therapists will look at:

  • the key areas of IBS and GI tract worries
  • what IBS is and isn’t
  • how metaphor frames the experience
  • the relaxation response
  • sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system
  • warm hand technique (like a hot water bottle) on the belly
  • anchoring relaxation in trance to be used in daily life when tense or anxious
  • healing from within through hypnosis
  • working with IBS in parts therapy
  • and more…

All this for £135 per person reduced to £100 as live via Zoom. To include hand-outs, practice, and effective protocols.
