April 2010 was International IBS Awareness Month and the BBC recently carried even more information on the effectiveness of hypnotherapy for IBS.

Hypnosis has a very real effect that can be picked up on brain scans according to another recent report as covered by the BBC

A further recent report covered by the BBC about hypnosis (June 2011) and how it should be available on the NHS is here

And on Tuesday 12th April 2011 the Daily Mail reported the following

 

Please note that the ASA (Advertising Standards Authority) have jurisdiction over the content of websites in the UK. Ethically and legally all content must be backed by suitable evidence of efficacy through research trials. Functional Disorders such as IBS are not diseases they are a mis-communication between the brain and the gut and can be effectively managed through Hypnosis. They cannot be 'cured' as there is nothing physical to 'cure'.

Also please note that no claim is being made that hypnotherapy can cure any disease, with chronic conditions the use of hypnosis can help a sufferer cope better with the day-to-day issues and frustrations. There does however appear to be increasing evidence from psychological and medical research that the mind-body link is more important to our general wellbeing than previously thought.

Using inclusive and cognitive hypnotherapy
(i.e.  ethical, clinical research driven and empowering, gentle, active learning, experienced by the client within a state of deep
hypnosis) which can have life-long benefits typically for:-

IBS, PTSD, Reactive Depression , Anxiety Disorder, Dental/Needle/Flying Phobias other Anxiety related problems, and resources for Smoking Cessation..

Solent-hypnotherapy, Hampshire, and www.hampshirehypnotherapyhypnotherapist.co.uk is the website of Duncan Murray DCHyp, MSBST, GQHP who is fully qualified in  hypnotherapy. As a skilled hypnotherapist who has ethically studied clinical hypnosis in London with the BST foundation he is trained as a hypnotherapist to treat performance anxiety or anxieties for weddings or speeches as well as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder a wide range of debilitating  phobias as well as symptoms that give rise to sleep disorder such as  insomnia. The Manchester model by Peter Whorwell for the treatment of IBS has been seen on BBC  in the programme Alternative Therapies. Duncan Murray  is a  fully qualified hypnotherapist having gained his diploma a DCHyp. His other website www.Stopping-smoking.co.uk is specifically set up to help those that are looking for Smoking Cessation Therapy this is a particular intervention that is for those that are wanting to be quitting smoking using a hypnotherapist that is to say giving up an old habit that is causing them distress through cigarettes it has been found that the use of hypnotherapy by the application of techniques found in hypnosis are most helpful for smokers who want to become ex-smokers that is to say be happy ex-smokers after they have had help stopping smoking and become a permanent quitter. Duncan is a professional hypnotherapist working in Hampshire and Surrey though most of the time is spent working in Hampshire reaching out as a hypnotherapist to people in Southampton as well as the neighbouring city of Portsmouth along with Winchester and the towns and villages of Eastleigh, the housing development of  Whiteley along with that of  Locks Heath, the small village of Burridge, which is close to Park Gate, and going southwards this links to the costal village of Warsash, which is just across the river from Hamble, and inland to the market town of Bishops Waltham which is a few miles north from the village of Wickham, and has the A32 passing by it that leads to Fareham which also has the outlying villages of  Stubbington , Titchfield and Funtley,. Closer to home Duncan lives in the hamlet of  Curbridge which is slightly south of the other local hamlet of Curdridge which is served by the village, 1 mile away of , Botley and the small town of  Hedge End.

Duncan specialises in treating anxiety based disorders from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) through to a range of responses of learned behaviours that are known as process phobias which include a variety of things such as a fear of dentists or perhaps a specific phobia of flying or even nervousness at driving long distances or going to unknown locations. Hypnotherapy is a, so to speak, cousin of Hypnotherapists and the use of Accelerated Information Processing which some refer to by the acronym of EMDR. This involves tapping on the wrists or auditory stimulus that is bilateral in its application and experience causing the left and right hand sides of the brain to reprocess earlier stimuli with a new understanding. Hypnotherapy is all about perception and far less to do with suggestion than many people might be aware in Hampshire. As a GHR registered hypnotherapist Duncan explains in detail to all his clients as to how and why hypnotherapy works that it is not some strange matter of magic but rather helping the brain develop newer, better ways of thinking about our difficulties. Whether you are someone living in Southampton or the other, more naval orientated maritime port of Portsmouth looking to achieve a change in your perceptions of your problems through hypnotherapy Duncan provides an individually tailored approach to helping you solve your problems. Hampshire has many Hypnotherapists spread across the county from many different training backgrounds and like any talking therapy you should find a therapist that is suitable for you that is health orientated rather than financially motivated. Many Hypnotherapists are more concerned about how man sessions they sign you up for rather than the efficacy of their treatment this is unfortunately as true in Hampshire as any other county. PTSD is a very quickly learned response to a perceived life-threatening trauma, although it can take several weeks or months to fully develop. The mind only has to consider the event to have been very serious or life threatening for PTSD to be a likely outcome, the trauma can be a single one or a build up of several different events, depending on the individual, how conditioned they are to potential situations and what circumstances they found themselves in. PTSD is in no way a reflection on an individual's courage or strength - simply put it is the mind being unable to cope in that fraction of a second.

Typically an individual with PTSD will relive the experience when exposed to certain triggers, will have vivid dreams about the incident, develop depression and be unable to cope with many day-to-day activities, often suffering from panic attacks etc. PTSD can have lifelong effects. Happily it also can have its symptoms significantly reduced/lifted in a surprisingly short period of therapeutic sessions. I was trained to use both the EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reframing) as well as the 'Rewind Technique'. In the latter of these techniques the client is taken to a safe place in their mind, a safe comfortable place and re-experiences, from a safe dissociated perspective, what happened :- forwards from being safe beforehand - to being again safe afterwards, all experienced as a film being watched/experienced in black and white; and then backwards in colour (with the watcher actually in the film) to the beginning and repeated several times until there is no emotional response to the originating event. This process might sound slightly strange, but it allows the mind to reprocess everything that happened from a safe distance, dissociated from any perceived danger or pain, as if it had happened to another person, as if they weren't personally involved.It's very effective as a treatment with sufferers from PTSD for 16 years having shown extremely significant gains in just one session with most immediate symptoms reducing.

Many therapists like to utilise techniques that regress the individual to the actual incident(s) and make them relive them again - as if they were there. This I personally consider to be unhelpful for somebody with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. If the mind could not cope with it the first time I cannot see how reliving it will help, even if a client could relax enough to enter hypnosis knowing what was about to happen to them 'again'.

Stopping smoking therapy is about changing your habits and beliefs as well as utilising hypnotherapy and I cannot make you do anything you don't want to; however have you ever wondered why it was so difficult to stop even when using NRT - that 'addictive drug' that makes you 'need to smoke' - even though a single piece of gum (4mg) contains more than 10 times the amount of inhaled nicotine from a single cigarette? Have you ever wondered why NRT products say 'Willpower Required' at 10 times the dose of Nicotine from a cigarette?

Smoking is purely a habit, and a very successful one too, of the Subconscious Mind reminding you, sometimes uncomfortably so, to smoke a fag - because it is something you do. When you make a conscious decision to stop smoking your Subconscious doesn't know this, or why you have made the change and carries on behaving like a smoker - well, reminding you to smoke because that is what you do as far as it is concerned!As part of the process the habit is also looked at very closely - and your belief system over Nicotine being an 'addictive drug'. Please see my separate website http://www.stopping-smoking.co.uk for further details. Most people successfully achieve stopping in a single session and others find it better to achieve the same new learning over 3 shorter sessions, it all depends on your belief system and what is going on in your life - as a usual guideline 70% respond fully to the single long session programme, with others requiring a more gentle approach to unlearn old beliefs and accept the new truths - all clients are given handouts and a recording to listen to which will help them embed the new learning in to their Subconscious Mind.

My programme is specifically aimed at the long-term, chronic, smoker living in rural Hampshire or the cities of Portsmouth and Southampton. Based in Curbridge and highly convenient for the M27, Botley, Whiteley and the local villages who either wants to stop smoking or significantly reduce their habit.

If your Subconscious Mind thinks you are still a smoker and reminds you to smoke  how can you behave like an ex-smoker and not smoke?

If an individual wants to achieve their outcomes in a single session this would take 3 hours and cost 150.00; however to ensure that all the individual's issues are covered  I sometimes recommend a three session approach, of an hour each, at the same hourly rate as my normal consultation fee of 50.00p.h. Groups are run every month lasting 4 hours at a cost of 50 per person.

As someone who had IBS for 17 years I noticed, whilst studying for my Diploma in Clinical Hypnosis, a rapid and long-term improvement in the behaviour of my gut to the extent that there are only a couple of foods that now trigger an attack – my problem for liking hot curries and chillies. I therefore developed a special interest in the treatment of IBS through hypnotherapy, was trained by Michael Mahoney of the IBS Register as well as by the BST Foundation and have since founded IBSHelp.

The most common theory is that IBS is frequently a disorder of the interaction between the brain and the gut; a functional disorder. It is not a disease. Usually 3 weekly sessions with a couple of monthly follow up sessions  can bring very significant help for / relief from the symptoms of IBS. Historically an 80% reduction in symptoms from an individual's starting point; measured when commencing treatment.

IBS is distressing and life restricting for the estimated 10.5% in 2004 (8.2% in 2003) of the British adult population that are diagnosed sufferers and almost twice as many of those are women in comparison to men. Allowing for unreported cases, it is estimated to affect 15-20% of the general population at any one time (Hypnotherapy in Irritable Bowel Syndrome: a Large-Scale Audit of a Clinical Service With Examination of Factors Influencing Responsiveness – W.M Gonsalkorale PhD, L.A. Houghton PhD., and Peter Whorwell MD FRCP – The American Journal of Gastroenterology Vol 97 No 4 2002). IBS is an anathema too as it is usually confirmed by the absence of any other condition.

Hypnotherapy is included in the 2008 NICE [National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence] clinical guidelines, under psychological interventions, as a third option (with the others being diet and medication) for the management of IBS and particularly for individuals that have had the syndrome for over 12 months. This is in part due to the significant clinical research of an NHS unit in Manchester in the use of hypnotherapy in the management of IBS. Professor Peter Whorwell heads up the South Manchester Functional Bowel Service at Manchester University’s School of Medicine and is the founder of what has become known as the Manchester Model; the model of treatment that I use.

In the Manchester Model, specific gut-orientated therapy is used in the suggestion of warmth, calmness and relaxation of the colon and this can have benefits that can provide up to five years being symptom free (Whorwell PJ (2006). 'Effective Management of Irritable Bowel Syndrome: The Manchester Model' (International Journal of Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis, 54(1):21-6.).

The model suggests the uses of gut directed therapy over several weeks using guided imagery, particularly that of the gut as a smoothly flowing river or, the use of a tree metaphor for strength and resilience, along with teaching self-hypnosis. The Manchester Model reports that approximately 80% of patients showed significant improvement in symptoms and overall well-being; the patient audit used a statistically important 250 case histories (Hypnotherapy in Irritable Bowel Syndrome: The American Journal of Gastroenterology Vol 97 No 4 2002). A previous study (Galovoski T.E., Blanchard E.B. 'The Treatment of Irritable Bowel Syndrome with Hypnotherapy' Applied Psycophysiological Biofeedback 1998;23;219-32)  importantly showed that hypnotic ability (how deeply you enter hypnosis) is not a factor in the success of treatment.

As the audit of hypnotherapy of Whorwell (et al) concludes “...it has been shown that their [drugs] beneficial effect is lost shortly after cessation of treatment…which is in sharp contrast to hypnotherapy  where the symptomatic improvement is long-lasting.”

A final thought before starting any treatment: as the hypnotherapist I (and any hypnotherapist) must ensure that the client has had IBS diagnosed by a medical practitioner, this is a must as IBS is similar to many other symptoms such as Colitis, Crohn’s disease and Coeliac disease.
