LWT 029: Jayne Corner – The Calm & Happy Gut

Irritable Bowel Syndrome Podcast

Calm & Happy Gut

Jayne Corner is a certified clinical hypnotherapist and wellness coach. Specifically, she specializes in gut-directed hypnotherapy and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) for people suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

Using mind-gut therapies Jayne helps her clients regain control over their bowel and IBS symptoms. Jayne sees her clients achieve a 70-80% reduction of symptoms. Things like, pain, bloating, constipation, and diarrhoea are ongoing struggles for people who live with chronic IBS. It is embarrassing and debilitating.

Need is the mother of invention

Jayne’s own battle with Irritable Bowel Syndrome began early in life. Like many patients who struggle with IBS issues, answers from medical professionals were less than helpful. They often point to stress as the causal factor. Mealtimes were anxiety-provoking and surrounded by fear. Jayne refused to believe her life would be plagued with such discomfort.

During her young adult years, Jayne immersed herself in learning about IBS, health, wellness, stress reduction, and diet. She also started to put her own pieces together. Eating a whole-food diet and learning to harness her emotional states really helped.

As an adult, a colonoscopy confirmed that gluten did affect her even though she did not have celiac disease. Jayne did learn however that she did have the celiac gene.

Empathy for Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Overall, Jayne endured a long road of obstacles. She knows first-hand the frustrations of trying to adhere to strict diets. As well, as the nasty side effects of Irritable Bowel Syndrome medication. Ugh.


Focus on self. Understanding how to make your diet work for your lifestyle is key. It’s critical to learn about food intolerances and identify yours. However, shifting your mindset on lifestyle eating rather than dieting can help as well. Jayne discovered following a Paleo geared diet to be helpful. She looks at her eating habits from a lifestyle perspective.

Gluten is one of the many things well-known to affect people with celiac but it can also impact people with IBS. Although medical testing to date is not able to give people definitive information it is important to be your own detective and pay attention to how your body reacts to various foods.

Career Change

After leaving her corporate employment, Jayne first started a food business. Eventually, she moved on to obtain both health coaching and hypnosis certifications. Educating people became her main focus and adding hypnosis skills really maximized her abilities.


Hypnosis works with the subconscious and is a gentle way to support people in enhancing their brain-gut connection. Also, behaviour patterns associated with sleeping and stress for example can all contribute to triggering IBS flares. Jayne helps people look at the whole lifestyle impact.

Research indicates that women in particular, who lean toward perfectionism, have a high correction with IBS. Hypnosis is an effective tool for this type of behaviour modification.

Winning Trio

Overall, the three techniques that Jayne finds most helpful for her clients suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome are a combination of educational coaching, cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), and hypnosis.
