Transforming Digestive Health: CBT and Hypnotherapy for Gastrointestinal Disorders in NYC



Gastrointestinal disorders are a complex and often debilitating set of conditions that affect many individuals. At, we specialize in a unique and effective approach to treating these disorders through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Hypnotherapy. Led by our team of experienced professionals, our practice offers hope and healing to those struggling with gastrointestinal issues.

The Challenge of Gastrointestinal Disorders

Gastrointestinal (GI) disorders, such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Crohn’s disease, and Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD), can significantly impact an individual’s quality of life. These conditions often come with a range of symptoms, including abdominal pain, bloating, and altered bowel habits, which can be both physically and emotionally distressing.

CBT: A Proven Approach to GI Disorders

At, we utilize CBT as a cornerstone of our treatment for GI disorders. CBT is a well-established psychological treatment that helps individuals identify and change negative thought patterns and behaviors. For GI disorders, CBT is particularly effective in managing the stress and anxiety that often exacerbate symptoms. Our therapists work closely with patients to develop personalized strategies to cope with and reduce the impact of their symptoms.

The Role of Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy is another powerful tool in our treatment arsenal. This therapeutic technique involves guiding patients into a state of deep relaxation, where they are more open to suggestions and positive changes. In the context of GI disorders, hypnotherapy can be used to reduce stress, enhance the mind-gut connection, and alleviate symptoms. Our skilled hypnotherapists tailor each session to address the specific needs and concerns of our patients.

A Holistic Approach

What sets apart is our holistic approach to treatment. We understand that GI disorders are not just physical ailments; they have psychological and emotional dimensions that must be addressed. Our team collaborates closely with each patient, creating a comprehensive treatment plan that encompasses both the mind and the body.

Success Stories

Our patients have experienced significant improvements in their symptoms and overall well-being. From individuals with chronic IBS finding relief from abdominal pain, to those with GERD experiencing fewer episodes of reflux, our approach has proven effective in a wide range of cases.
