HypnoIBSTM provides you will a comprehensive training package, resources, trademarked product and protocols for working with IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). IBS is a condition which affects the gut and causes a range of symptoms including discomfort, bloating, constipation and/ or diarrhoea and an incomplete feeling of emptying the bowels after going to the toilet. IBS can have a significant impact on people’s lives and affect people’s social and work lives and lead to low self-esteem, anxiety and depression. IBS is a disorder which is closely associated with thoughts and emotions. Hypnotherapy has a proven track record as an effective treatment. Hypnotherapy is recommended by the National Institute for Health Care and Excellence (NICE) as a treatment option for IBS. This, and the lack of effective treatment options currently available, has created a strong demand for hypnotherapists who specialize in working with IBS.

The Oxford School of Hypnosis
(Reena Biswas)
Location: Distance Learning


The Oxford School of Hypnosis offers a range of approved CPD (Continuing Professional Development) courses which count towards the GHR's annual CPD requirement for continued registration.
The aim of the masterclasses is to enable qualified hypnotherapists and other therapists experienced in the application of applied hypnosis, to add to their existing skills and knowledge.

1. Each CPD course requires the student to complete a homework assignment after studying the course notes. This typically consists of an analysis of a hypothetical case study.
2. The study hours are to be used as a guideline, and are in addition to the time required for completing the homework assignment.
3. Students should only enrol on a CPD course if the topic has not already been included on their practitioner level course.
4. Maximum time allowed for completion and submission of a homework assignment is one year, in order to receive a certificate.
5. Email/telephone support is available to students enrolling on any of the listed online CPD courses.
6. The course notes are comprehensive, and there are no accompanying CDs or mandatory reading lists.

7. I am available for teaching CPD courses on behalf of other training schools and to groups.
