Psychological Therapies

Psychological distress is commonly associated with IBS. IBS symptoms often increase during times of stress. Recognition and treatment of these issues is very important for the management of IBS in conjunction with dietary, physiotherapy, and pharmacological measures. A variety of approaches have shown benefit in IBS such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and hypnotherapy. A counsellor or psychologist who is familiar with IBS and who can work with your GP and specialist can be very beneficial. A free CBT based psychological intervention program for IBS is available here.
