I tried one last year-a 5 week CBT course. I had waited nearly a year to get onto the course but when I went it was all very basic stuff. Perhaps useful if you are newly diagnosed but I knew more about IBS than the psychologist did having been researching it almost daily for several years. It was advice like drink enough water each day, get a good sleep pattern going, use mindfulness techniques to help you through the pain. When I asked how you can use mindfulness techniques whilst semi-conscious (or even unconscious-for me that is what pain does to me) she didn't really have an answer to that!
