Researchers from Wythenshawe Hospital in Manchester have found that hypnotherapy can be used to effectively treat irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) in 70 per cent of cases. Irritable bowel syndrome is a functional bowel disorder, which causes abdominal pain, and in some cases, fever, diarrhoea, bloating, constipation and nausea. It is a common ailment, which is thought to affect one in three people at some point in their lives. The causes of irritable bowel syndrome are unknown, particularly as IBS sufferers show no physical abnormalities in the bowel. Because of this, many specialists believe that stress is a major factor in causing this painful bowel disorder. Currently, a hypnotherapist at the Manchester hospital is treating more than 60 irritable bowel syndrome sufferers every week. Patients are coming from locations throughout the country to experience this cutting-??edge course of 12 hypnotherapy treatments, which means the hospital now has an 18-??month waiting list.The methodology used in private practise tends to work in just 6 weekly sessions following an initial consultation.

Truthfully, I’m glad not to work seven days a week. But I’m disappointed that we haven’t fully set the record straight on hypnosis, particularly hypnotherapy for the purpose of self improvement rather than stage entertainment. Here are the misconceptions causing most common fears and the truths behind them: “I’ll get stuck in hypnosis, forever.” You cannot get stuck. Even if your practitioner were to collapse in the middle of your session, and not end the session. Here’s what would happen: after not getting any input for a few minutes, your subconscious mind would notice that and exit the hypnotic state. And you would naturally rouse yourself. “The hypnotherapist will make me tell my secrets” “and that includes bank account numbers and the times I cheated,” the client worries. No reputable hypnotherapist would do that but even if he tried, your powerful subconscious mind, whose main purpose is to protect you, would call a foul and keep quiet. “I’ll become a robot under the control of the hypnotherapist.” This is similar to the above. Your subconscious mind, geared to protect you from danger and damage would simply not participate in a venture of this kind. “I read about a cult leader who used hypnosis.” Frankly the cult leaders who lure people into blind devotion are using more charm, charisma and persuasion tactics than hypnosis, but if they do something they call “hypnosis,” it is useful mostly as an explanation for “why I fell for it.” An excuse likely to be accepted because of zombie movies of the past. If you want to feel even safer about hypnosis, look for documented cases where hypnotherapists were sued by their clients for unprofessional behaviour. Now compare those to other mental health professionals, and doctors, and dentists too. The number of hypnotherapists wouldn’t fill a hotel room. “I can’t be hypnotised so I’d be wasting my money.” This includes I’m too smart to be hypnotised, too dumb to be hypnotised, too scared to be hypnotised, too antsy to be hypnotised, too unlike-??everyone-??else to be hypnotised, and more. Here’s the greater truth, with a heaping spoonful of honesty: “I don’t want to be hypnotised” or “It makes me feel better about myself to believe I can’t be hypnotised.” If you don’t want to be hypnotised or won’t follow instructions for going into hypnosis, you won’t be hypnotised. If you’re too distracted to concentrate, or exceedingly nervous about trying, it may take a little more doing than the average person, but it is do-??able. If you have an IQ of less than 70, you might have difficulties, but if you’re reading and understanding this, you’re good to go. I have worked with clients on referral from psychotherapists for help with ADD/?ADHD and OCD. With patience and intention, they even learned to hypnotize themselves. If you think you’ll feel uncomfortable with the hypnotherapist (which can often be discovered during your first phone call with the practitioner), or you’re just not in the mood, or you need some questions answered first, it’s okay to get those covered before you embark on the session. It’s okay to be a little scared about being hypnotised. Fear holds within it two things: A respect for something that may be powerful and life changing and a desire to keep yourself safe. Both are worthwhile thoughts. If the fear gets in your way of experiencing something that may change your life for the better, don’t let it. Get educated about hypnosis. Then find a hypnotherapist you feel comfortable with. Or find several. Ask friends, doctors, therapists for referrals Vet each one, ask questions. Read their websites. Interview them by phone, but don’t keep them on longer than 10–15 minutes. (You can talk more at your first appointment.) Then schedule a single session, and decide if you want more. Once you try it, you’ll know there was really little to worry about. But you still get to brag about your bravery and what a great hypnotic subject you are.
Sometimes it’s as simple as this. A woman calls me about her smoking problem. The problem is her doctor says she needs to stop smoking, and she says she wants to quit, but she simply isn’t quitting. Cold turkey doesn’t work and neither does the NHS quit smoking or even the nicotine drug her doctor prescribed and she faithfully took. Now she’s both taking the drug and smoking. “I’m desperate,” she says, “So I called you.” Long story short: she comes in and quits in one session. Longer story: some people are so afraid of a painless procedure called hypnotherapy that they’ll try everything else first, including drugs with known and unknown side effects. But what about the side effect of hypnotherapy? Is it dangerous? The side effect of hypnotherapy is relaxation. The intended effect of hypnotherapy? That you get what you came for! In the case of smoking cessation, that you stop poisoning yourself and making cigarette manufacturers rich. There’s only one problem with this kind of relaxation. You have to make sure after your session ends that you are fully roused, alert and aware before crossing a street or turning the key in the ignition. That’s usually about it for negative side effects. But that’s not the end of the story or clients would have me working 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to help them quit smoking, attract love relationships, or excel effortlessly in their chosen career, which are my specialties.
