All Gut Centre Psychologists are provided the highest level of training not only in Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), but including a complex and broad range of gastrointestinal disorders.
This provides our patients with the greatest level of expertise and the best possible treatment outcomes. Our Psychologists must be fully registered and uphold a current membership with the governing Association AHPRA and must undertake a certified professional hypnotherapy training course prior to providing gut-directed hypnotherapy.
Ongoing brain-gut psychological training and supervision, as well as gut-directed hypnotherapy supervision is provided by Director and Founder and Clinical Psychologist Dr Jim Kantidakis, who has more than 12 years experience in gastrointestinal disorders and the most expert GI clinical experience Australia-wide.
