The main benefit of our hypnotherapy for IBS is to empower our clients to make the link between anxiety and biofeedback* and how the body reacts to stress. Our therapist will support the client to take one’s own overdeveloped fight and flight instinct and re-install a preferred and more beneficial coping method. Clinics for clients are held in Saville Therapies Centre, Newcastle upon Tyne and Amble, Northumberland.
Clients receive a full package of support including an overview of their current holistic health, their own and new coping strategies, life-style adaptations to consider and a plan for improved wellness including a bespoke plan of therapy ideal for their individual condition.
