What have others had to say about this course?

“Having seen an IAPT therapist for my anxiety, we realised that IBS was linked to my worries. My therapist suggested the living well with IBS course as my main concern was the effect IBS had on my life. The living well with IBS course has opened up my eyes to many issues that I had not even realised effected my symptoms – both physically and mentally. Spending time in a group of others who understand what living with IBS is like has honestly encouraged me that I am not alone and that there is help out there”
“I really wish I knew about the living well with IBS course or it existed earlier and that you could actually self refer to IAPT courses. I found out about the course through an IAPT worker at my GP surgery. The course gives you lots of tools and techniques to help you deal with IBS symptoms and the thoughts, feelings, worries behind them. The oppportunity to meet and talk weekly with a group of  people who understand what I am going through was really helpful, as i started to feel noone else understood, it was just me or i wasn’t normal, but going to the course made me realise it is all normal. I have come away feeling more positive about living with IBS. I have started using the techniques to challenge my anxiety around IBS and started making some positive changes to my daily life”
