Effective Strategies for IBS

 Online CPD


Carole Wan and Alan Cooper from the Academy of Clinical & Medical Hypnosis Ltd have developed and taught this one-day CPD for many years, updating details where necessary and sharing their own six-session approach with both hypnotherapists, doctors and consultants. Some feedback from previous IBS training is listed below.


We are now offering this as an on-line course. Hypnotherapy is recommended by NICE (the National Institute of Clinical Excellence) as an effective treatment for this distressing condition and many Doctors recommend hypnotherapy.

This CPD is equivalent to 10 hours training.

  • Symptoms of IBS
  • Understanding the Digestive Process
  • Epidemiology & Co-Morbidities
  • Physical, mental and emotional factors

  • The FODMAP diet

 After completion of a case study you will be awarded the CPD Certificate.

'I cannot recommend Carole and Alan's Hypnotherapy training strongly enough. Their long-standing experience shines through in each and every training session, with enthusiasm and patience in abundance.


I very much enjoyed the way the course was conducted.  It was packed full of information which you both delivered in a clear and easy to understand manner.  I left with the feeling that I really did understand the condition of IBS and I believe that I am now well equipped to help future IBS clients. The course was well structure, full of useful information and very fairly priced.  I will definitely attend future CPD dates with ACMHL and I would highly recommend you to other therapists.

Lots of good content - not a rehash of other courses.  Thank you, I enjoyed the course.  Very good value for money.


Thank you for a thoroughly professional training course.  I got exactly what I wanted from the course, and more, which was a structured approach to dealing with IBS and all the necessary information


As a hypnotherapist and IBS therapist for whom at least 50 per cent of my clients are IBS sufferers, this CPD was an extremely useful and worthwhile addition to my existing knowledge and practices


A very informative course with great handouts and a planned 6-session programme
