IBS-14 Treatment

Dr Peter Worwell urges medics to embrace hypnosis in the treatment of IBS.  He adds “over the years, researchers have shown that hypnotherapy can be exceptionally helpful in the management of refactory irritable bowel syndrome”

I use Dr Worwell’s method, known as the Manchester Method, and incorporated it in my IBS-14 System, part of which is used in my consulting room while clients use the audio program available on line.  Info sheet


 People have been amazed at the effect that my unique hypno-coaching programme can have in your life.

Hypno-coaching is a rich and effective blend of modern coaching techniques, NLP and hypnosis.

This method is more effective than coaching alone and incorporates both conscious and unconscious processes to help you transform your outcome into reality.

A colleague likens this process to the metamorphosis of the caterpillar into the chrysalis then on into the emergence of a beautiful butterfly.   Many of my clients testify to this and I have witnessed this with my own eyes as they emerge into newness.  Info sheet

Heart-Focus program

The self-regulation method known as Heart-Focus is based on the Heart-Math System and is used to promote a state of energy coherence throughout the autonomic nervous system.

This state of psycho-physiological coherance is different in many ways from the relaxation you experience when listening to music, watching the TV, reading a good novel or going for a walk in the countryside.  That kind of ‘relaxation’ may not translate into the desirable, objective changes that result from psycho-physiological coherence nor will that form of relaxation bring the benefits that derive from psycho-physiological coherence.

Heart-focus is a modern scientifically proven method of managing stress, controlling excessive physiological symptoms, balancing unhelpful thought patterns, and employing positive emotional states that achieve a balanced state of mind, body and emotions.

BrainSpotting was developed by Dr David Grand out of his work and experience as an EMDR therapist and trainer.   I have used this treatment with traumatised police and prison officers as well as the ambulance service and members of the general public with amazing effect.

“Brainspotting helps us to harness the brain’s natural ability for self-scanning,” explains Dr Grand, “so we can activate, locate, and process the source of trauma and distress in the body.”

EMDR Trauma Therapy

EMDR has been described as a ‘complex and powerful therapy’.  I have used EMDR treatment consistently over nearly two decades with a wide range of clients including police, prison officers, pilots, first-line paramedics, military and the general public. You will find my details on the UK and Ireland EMDR Association website.

EMDR was featured on BBC Radio 4s programme iPM recently. The programme told the story of a woman revisiting intense experiences of being bullied very early in life, with an event at just age four. Listen to the story here:  http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p04jyv3y

Praise for Hypno-Coaching

“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humour, and some style.”

Maya Angelou

After reading this, a colleague of mine remarked, “This is a favourite quote of mine and one which guides me at times. I encounter lots of people who love this quote and for whom it makes a lot of sense, but do not feel it. That is, they do not feel as if they are truly excelling, or they have perhaps reached a plateau in life and are ready to move on to the next level in their own personal evolution. Hypnotic coaching helps people looking to do just that.”
