IBS – Irritable Bowel Syndrome
IBS Help with the Thrive Programme Wolverhampton
IBS or Irritable Bowel Syndrome is relatively widespread and it is estimated that 20% of people will suffer from it at one time or another.
IBS may be caused by either physiological (body chemistry) factors as well as psychological factors.
Before commencing any kind of psychotherapy, we recommend consulting your doctor to determine any medical problems that may be contributing to your IBS.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome is certainly exacerbated by Stress and Anxiety and although medication is often prescribed for the condition, psychological treatments aimed at resolving the Stress or Anxiety are often the most effective ways of alleviating the symptoms.
There are a number of symptoms associated with IBS and one, or several, of the symptoms may be present at any one time.
Typical symptoms are:-
- Abdominal cramps
- For women pain in the left side during sex
- Gurgling stomach
- Loss of appetite
IBS can be Embarrassing
IBS is a condition that may remain “hidden” or is not spoken about or consulted for due to the often embarrassing symptoms that are associated with it.
Whilst the media is making efforts to “normalise” our view of the condition, irritable bowel syndrome may be more widespread than originally thought due to this reluctance to talk about it.
If YOU suffer from IBS then you will already know how limiting the symptoms can be and how it can affect your ability to get on with your life.
The symptoms can be very unpredictable and intrusive and Irritable Bowel Syndrome has a reputation of being difficult to treat.
There are numerous “cures” and “remedies” available in the market place but the one common approach taken with all these solutions is that they target the symptoms and seem to totally ignore the cause of the problem, or at least the contributing psychological factors that may be causing it.
Whilst these remedies may provide temporary relief, the sufferer is unlikely to ever be free of the symptoms as the cause of the problem remains unresolved, often an inability to deal with Stress or Anxiety.
Please note that before engaging in any course of treatment, it is advisable to seek medical advice to ensure all other possible causes of your symptoms have been ruled out.
The Thrive Programme for IBS
The Thrive Programme is unsurpassed at helping people with ‘problems’ identify and then change their limiting belief systems.
This multi-session course utilises the very latest findings in cognitive psychology and neuroscience research to help a person to understand how a limiting belief may be formed in the first place, through either ‘learned social behaviours’ or by the accumulation of ‘evidence’ based experiences that provide the robust foundations of those belief systems.
Remarkably, it turns out that what we consider to be the ‘truth’ about the ‘way the world works’ amounts to nothing more than what we ‘believe’ to be true rather than what actually is!
The Thrive Programme for IBS will help you to gain a greater level of understanding behind the reasons why you experience the symptoms of IBS and then go on to help you solve the problem.
