The healthcare landscape is evolving, and mind-body medicine is at the forefront.
For more than a decade, countless clinical trials have proven that IBS can be managed by targeting the mind with hypnotherapy. It’s not just a viable tool, it’s an ideal tool, with studies showing physiological symptom improvements that are comparable to the low FODMAP diet — as well as significant psychological symptom improvements.
In this course, you’ll learn how to facilitate gut-directed hypnotherapy for your patients, without needing to deliver hypnotherapy yourself. Whether you’re a dietitian, nutritionist, general practitioner, or any professional with an interest in gut health — this course will leave you well-equipped to include this groundbreaking science in your practice.
You’ll begin by expanding your understanding of IBS as a condition, helping you better identify different IBS presentations.
We’ll guide you through history taking and the examination process.
We’ll also cover a history of hypnotherapy, how it’s used for IBS, and the research and protocols behind it.
Don’t worry — this isn’t IBS 101. We understand it’s likely you have considerable knowledge of this condition already, and this course is designed with your existing expertise in mind.
"What I enjoyed the most about the course was learning more about the IBS stress cycle and the fundamentals of hypnotherapy."

You’ll then learn more about Nerva, our leading digital gut-directed hypnotherapy program.
Nerva was created with world-leading expert Dr. Simone Peters (Adjunct Research Fellow, Department of Gastroenterology, Monash University, and Director of the Mind + Gut Clinic).
Our latest research shows that 85% of Nerva users see symptom improvement.
More than 100,00 patients have used the Nerva program — this course will enable you to facilitate Nerva for your own patients too.
Through three hours of video content, readings, and quizzes, you’ll learn why gut-directed hypnotherapy is a recommended treatment tool for IBS according to the 2021 ACG (American College of Gastroenterology)*.

On completion of the course, you’ll receive:

+ your own listing in the Nerva-approved Clinicians’ Directory, visible to thousands of Nerva users
+ support from the Nerva team as you integrate gut-directed health into your practice
+ a certificate of completion
"I really enjoyed the course and appreciated how well it was structured. I particularly liked listening to a real example of a gut-directed hypnotherapy session. As a clinician, it’s so important to understand what I am asking my patients to do and what Nerva entails."
