Hypnosis Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Hypnosis Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Do you suffer from the discomfort of Irritable Bowel Syndrome?

How Advanced Hypnotherapy and NLP can help

There is extensive writing available in respect of the positive use of hypnotherapy to help people suffering from symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome. For example, the National Institute of Clinical Excellence, (NICE), frequently produces papers available on its website.

People who experience IBS have a bowel that responds more acutely to stress and this can have a negative impact on their quality of life. For sufferers of IBS, the main focus becomes the bowel symptom.

The exact cause of IBS is undecided but the symptoms can be exacerbated by stress and anxiety.

Using hypnotherapy for IBS can help by lowering stress and anxiety levels and changing the way a person perceives and reacts to pain. For example, since one of the triggers for IBS is stress, hypnotherapy is used to produce visualisation techniques to calm the stress that produces these cramps and therefore to give you a feeling of having control.

Hypnotherapy can help you to reach a more positive state and a feeling of calm in respect of knowing you have a means of coping. Please read the Treatments section on ‘anxiety and stress’ for further information or telephone Sara for a free phone consultation on 07827 505389.

Hypnosis for Fears & Phobias

Hypnosis for Fears & Phobias

Are you considering Hypnosis for Fears and Phobias?  Perhaps an unwanted Fear or Phobia is stopping you from enjoying your life to the full.  Common fears include:  Fear of Flying, Fear of Dentist and Injections,  Fear of Elevators, Fear of Heights, Fear of of Spiders, Fear of Examinations.

Change is possible with Advanced Hypnotherapy, NLP techniques and Structured Coaching.

The treatment strategy involves helping a client to a position of calm, learning progressive relaxation techniques and self-hypnosis (simple visualisation) so that a person is enabled with a sense of control. Further techniques include ego strengthening to build confidence and support towards examining the fear. Sometimes a person’s fear or phobia may be linked to past or present anxieties and worries and these may not always be in the person’s conscious mind. Other stages of therapy include desensitisation towards the fear itself. With the use of projected hypnotic visualisation and specific NLP techniques new levels of coping can be achieved. Therapy is then used towards rehearsing with the client an ability to cope successfully in what were previously difficult situations and this is undertaken hypnotically when the client is under relaxation techniques.

Length of Treatment – this depends upon the history surrounding the symptoms and can range from 2-4 sessions.

Manage Stress Hypnotherapy

Manage Stress Hypnotherapy

Manage Stress with Hypnotherapy and Promote Your Wellbeing

Most people tell me they have large amounts of work to get through daily and as long as interruptions are minimal they can just about manage the pressure but they generally admit to feeling a sense of relief at the end of each day! However, many report of an increasing overlap and worry over things to do that carry forward to the next day and a feeling and sense of starting to lose control as they experience the feelings related to a sense of pressure building up.

Various official statistics show the increase in absenteeism from the workplace. The cost to UK industry is 13 billion. A report by Mind in 2011 states that British businesses lose an estimated £26 billion each year in sickness absence and lost productivity. With greater awareness and mental health support, Mind indicate businesses could save one third of these costs – £8 billion a year. (Source ISMA UK)

So, whilst some people may thrive on a sense of pressure, other people may feel the sense of an escalating loss of control. Stress is defined by the HSE as, the adverse reaction people have to pressure or other types of demand placed on them at work. (Source ISMA UK)

Which leads to the question … What Stresses You?

People experience pressure and stress in different ways. Some speak of external stressors, such as the expectations and demands from Managers or Directors whilst other people report of the pressure of their own inner critic’s demands ….

  • Other peoples’ expectations and a fear they cannot meet these and the ramifications
  • A lack of appreciation from bosses for the job well done
  • Lack of respect in the workplace for working overtime
  • Inability to switch off from work or other problems and to sleep well
  • ncreased workplace expectations
  • Internal fears of recalled past events and build up of pressure and self blaming

Can You Spot Your Increased Anxiety Levels?

People often speak of a niggling anxiety and further describe the physical sensations that build up through worries over increasing expectations. For example, feelings of increased heart rate, shortness of breath, tension in the chest, perspiration and palpitations: some people even report headaches and IBS.

Do some of these situations and triggers seem familiar?

  • Job worries over a pending merger and acquisition
  • New management leadership styles and conflict in communication
  • Experiencing negative thought processes and physical symptoms of stress
  • Nerves over pitches and presentations
  • Lack of assertiveness, increasing procrastination, and unproductive time management

Better Sleep Hypnotherapy

Better Sleep Hypnotherapy

Do you want to be able to sleep well at night – perhaps you’re considering better sleep hypnotherapy?

Usually something has occurred to disrupt your sleeping patterns. Are you worried over work, relationships or career …. and unable to switch off and get a good night’s sleep? …. or perhaps you have suffered depression and found this has affected your sleep.

For those who have suffered stress and depression I will briefly explain the link between depression and Insomnia . People who suffer depression often report anxiety and broken sleep patterns. The anxiety may be related to private life or work issues. Both depression and Insomnia may have links to a disruption in body rhythms. For example, worry can produce a troubled mind and in turn, a shortened sleep time. When sleep is under 6 hours a person is less likely to awake feeling relaxed and refreshed. There is considerable academic information on the net detailing this.

The link between Insomnia and depression becomes clearer in that the absence of a sound sleep pattern with control over unwanted negative thoughts means insomnia may trigger depression (through changing brain chemicals and body rhythms).

Would you like to learn a new easy plan for a good night’s sleep?

People often report symptoms in experiencing a continual and unwanted inner dialogue expressing repeated worries and fears – and they feel unable to switch this off. These fears then alert and arouse the individual to a state of anxiety, which in turn, produces muscular tension and a shortened and irregular breathing. Another issue with Insomnia is that people often present with other symptoms such as muscular aches, unwanted habits, headaches or IBS.

Treatment Methodology – using Hypnotherapy, NLP and Solution Focused approaches

My method as a registered advanced practitioner and stress management consultant is to use a combination of tried and tested methods tailored to suit individual needs – whether you have mild case of short term insomnia or more chronic symptoms.

  • Learn progressive relaxation techniques – breathing, muscular relaxation, and cue setting
  • A Sleep audit diary (with daytime additions) to help to identify negative beliefs and associative triggers,
  • Learn enabling and empowering behavioural changes ….
  • Learn how to stop and control unwanted negative thought patterns, triggers and associations
  • Rational emotive and logical coaching structure with routine and rhythm for a restful sleep
  • Assessing dietary, psychological and behavioural stimulants for change(ie – (caffeine, computer, noise)
  • Learn self hypnosis and gain a feeling of peace and control.

If you think you may be suffering from depression you should contact you doctor for advice.

When a person’s ability to experience peaceful, restorative sleep, new solutions to the worries surrounding their depression can often be found.

For persons who are suffering depression, motivation may be low, therefore my methodology is tailored to help each individual to regain a sense of control by taking progressive small steps forward and building on these.
