IBS Irritable Bowel Syndrome Ireland

hypnotherapist cork

Hi, my name is Paul Hunter. If you’ve googled “ibs” or “irritable bowel syndrome ireland”, then you’ve come to the right place.

I am a Clinical Hypnotherapist, CBT Practitioner and Life Coach. I have been helping the people of Cork, Kerry, Waterford, Limerick and Tipperary soothe their IBS problems for the past fifteen years.

The first step is to get a proper diagnosis. You could read a list of symptoms on the internet and to jump to the conclusion you have IBS, but you might be wrong. IBS shares the same symptoms as:

  • Ulcerative collitis
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Lactose intolerance
  • Diverticulitis
  • Coeliac disease
  • Pancreatitis
  • Endometriosis
  • Stomach cancer

Once you have ruled out all of these, and you are sure it’s iirritable bowel syndrome, hypnosis and CBT can help you to profoundly change how you experience your problem and make it significantly better. To find out more, click on the button below and make an enquiry!

  • Childhood stress – eg. witnessing a parents alcoholism.
  • Sexual abuse, physical abuse or emotional abuse in your past

The great news is that there is a very effective treatment available using “gut-directed hypnotherapy”. This therapy was developed by Dr. P.J. Whorwell of University Hospital Of South Manchester in England.

Essentially, there is a breakdown of communication between the brain and the gut which causes the gut to spasm painfully. During hypnosis, I will suggest to your unconscious mind that:

  • you no longer focus on sensations coming from your gut
  • your mind is prompted to imagine your gut healing and soothing
