Finding Root Causes
Hypnotherapy addresses any emotional or stress triggers that cause IBS, such as trauma, guilt, anger. We will trace any background of your condition. We will figure out when and why it exactly started, identify any critical incidents that could have created and maintained this condition from the subconscious filing cabinet.
People with IBS get stressed thinking about potential flare-ups quite often. We use Enhanced Cognitive Behavioral Therapy(E-CBT) to guide you how to modify your thoughts to improve your emotional state in order to reduce IBS symptoms.
Regaining Control with Envisioning
When E-CBT combined with hypnotherapy, the effect is effective and long lasting. In hypnotic state, you will be guided to envision that your stomach is strong, smooth, calm, and protected, with the smooth muscles of your digestive tract. Through the power of hypnotic suggestion, we can work with your central nervous system to reduce the sensitivity of nerves in the gut.
Since brain and gut is connected, in trance state, we will teach the gut to be less reactive to strong emotions and changes the way the brain processes information sent from the gut.
Hypnotherapy helps gaining your sense of control and relaxation by powerful relaxation techniques, along with reframing the interpretation of the bowel movements. Within few session of hypnotherapy in Brisbane, your bodily functions will return back to normal such as the movement of the digestive tract and improvement in the immune system, and you will be free from IBS!
