There can often be an emotional component to digestive disorders, often relating to feeling the need control one’s environment or feeling controlled. The abdomen is a common area for people to hold on to unexpressed feelings. Many years of chronic unawares tightening of the musculature in response to stress can result in digestive disorders. Psychotherapy is an opportunity explore control issues, body awareness and emotional expression in a safe environment.
