This study involves a six-week mindfulness course as well as regular study assessments.
Mindfulness for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a new mindfulness course specifically designed for people who suffer from IBS.
The course consists six weekly 2 hour group sessions. During the course you will develop awareness of your mind and body through the cultivation of mindfulness. The aim of the course is to reduce the symptoms of IBS and help you increase your mental and physical wellbeing.

The course is provided at no cost to you as participant.
The course will be held at the Oxford Mindfulness Centre and assessments will take place at the Department of Experimental Psychology of Oxford University as well as at the Oxford Mindfulness Centre.
