Hypnotherapy for Anxiety and Depression






IBS Reponds Well to Hypnotherapy


Researchers from University Hospital of South Manchester in the UK looked at long term data on the benefits of hypnotherapy on irritable bowel syndrome. Two hundred four patients prospectively completed questionnaires scoring symptoms, quality of life, anxiety, and depression before, immediately after, and up to six years following hypnotherapy. They also subjectively assessed the effects of hypnotherapy retrospectively.


The study found that 71% of patients initially responded to therapy. Of these, 81% maintained their improvement over time while the majority of the remaining 19% claimed that deterioration of symptoms had only been slight.

With respect to symptom scores, all items at follow up were significantly improved over pre-hypnotherapy levels (p<0.001) and showed little change from post-hypnotherapy values. There were no significant differences in the symptom scores between patients assessed at 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5+ years following treatment. Quality of life and anxiety or depression scores were significantly improved at follow up (p<0.001) but did show some deterioration. Patients also reported a reduction in office visits and medication use following the completion of hypnotherapy.

The study concludes that the beneficial effects of hypnotherapy appear to last at least five years. Thus it is a viable therapeutic option for the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome.

You vs your co-worker: How to win disputes at work

Intra-office conflicts often happen because of the way different people or groups operate mentally. Simplistically, I look at how a person’s typical use of their brain affects the way that they approach problems. This can easily be divided into feelings (i.e. limbic) and thinking (i.e. cognitive). Thus a person who takes a rather emotional approach will frequently be in conflicts with those who are thinkers. Likewise, if a thinking person attempts to reason with a feeling one, they will not connect. Of course, this does not mean that two limbic-oriented people will not have a difficulty...

Being a Bodybuilder is a Way of Thinking

No great achievement in life is ever realized without first creating a firm vision of the desired results in your mind. Whether you are considering building the next great pyramid, creating the next billion-dollar Internet business, or growing and shaping your muscles for your next bodybuilding competition, without focusing on your results, it most likely will never be achieved. Why is this true? Realize that everything around and in us is made of patterns of matter and its energy. When one link or component changes, it inspires the others connected to it to adapt. I normally call this an...

The Value of a Healthy Ego

Over the past several years too many people have had to cope with the stress of financial difficulties. Very rarely have these situations been the consequence of poor decisions on the part of the affected individuals. Yet, it is so difficult for someone undergoing such stresses and strains to convince themselves that they are not at fault. In our society many have always placed an emphasis on finding oneself. Generally, this meant realizing a sense of self-identity. In other words, we want to find out who we are. Often this leads us to seek answers from religious or other spiritual...
