We know that living with IBS can be difficult and feel overwhelming, unpredictable and embarrassing. That it can impact on our relationships, our ability to socialise and our confidence. We might begin to feel depressed or anxious. We know that stress, anxiety and low mood can impact on IBS and we can find ourselves stuck in a vicious cycle.

Self-Help Resources

The IBS Network

Information and advice about IBS.

We know that sharing how we are feeling helps so try and think about someone you trust and share with them how you feel. We can offer a range of treatments for people with IBS who are also struggling with anxiety and/or depression including short courses, individual cognitive behavioural therapy and mindfulness groups.

Don’t forget about others who will be more than happy to support you: GP, nurses or the IAPT workers in your surgery.
