Users should seek medical care if they have feelings or thoughts of harming themselves or others while using Nerva.

Was this product created by an expert?

All Mindset Health products are developed in partnership with clinician-researchers who have developed specialised hypnotherapy practices around the conditions addressed by the apps. Nerva was created in conjunction with Dr. Simone Peters, whose research with Monash University found that gut-directed hypnotherapy worked as well as low-FODMAP diet for managing IBS symptoms. Dr. Peters helps hundreds of patients each year in person using this gut-directed hypnotherapy program at the Mind-Gut Clinic.

Should I check with my healthcare practitioner before using Nerva?

Nerva is not a replacement for psychological, psychiatric, therapeutic orother professional diagnosis and/or treatment by trained professionals. If you have an IBS diagnosis we recommend informing healthcare practitioners who work with you on your IBS. If you have not yet received an official IBS diagnosis, you should visit a doctor who can conduct a proper investigation and rule out other high-risk issues which may present similarly to IBS.

What is the maintenance plan?

Many Nerva users want to continuing to use the program for symptom management and general relaxation. The Nerva maintenance plan provides the opportunity to continue using the resources from the 6-week program, along with additional tools and a specialised mode designed to assist users managing flareups. With the Nerva subscription, you also get access to the maintenance plan.

What is Nerva?

Nerva is an app which provides a structured six-week program of gut-directed hypnotherapy, followed by a maintenance plan. Users can download the app and access the program in the convenience of their own homes.

How does the app work?

Users are guided through a six-week program of daily sessions of gut-directed hypnotherapy, educational readings about the gut-brain connection and breathing exercises. Each day they open the app, they're shown their tasks for the day, and tick them off to complete them. They'll be asked to record their progress at points along the way. The maintenance plan allows users who have completed the 6-week structured course to continue practising their skills and managing their symptoms in a more flexible format.

How can I share feedback about the product?

You're welcome to submit any feedback by reaching out directly to our team by using the in-app chat function. We also love people reviewing our products on the App Store.

Can I do the program again once I finish?

Yes, though your access will expire eventually. If you love the program, we recommend trying out the Nerva maintenance plan to keep maintaining the benefits!

Help! I'm on a new day, but the content seems to be repeating. Is the app malfunctioning?

No, this is normal; one of the principles of hypnotherapy is using repetition of key cues and visualisations over time to allow the concepts being taught to sink in. The Nerva program works by repeating each lesson for a week.

Can I listen to sessions more than once in a day?

Yes! No problem. The program is designed to be listened to once per day, but there is no reason you can't get even more Nerva in your day.

What should I do if I fall asleep?

It's preferable to listen to the whole program while awake, as this allows the concepts and visualisations to sink in more deeply. However, it can be very relaxing! If you do find yourself getting overly sleepy or dozing off, we recommend recommencing the session and potentially switching up your routine. For example, try changing the time at which you listen (if you are listening close to bedtime, move it earlier). You can also try changing the position in which you listen (sitting up rather than lying down).

How can I get help while using the app?

Tap the speech bubble in the upper right hand corner of the screen on the app, and just start typing - our customer service team will be in touch as soon as possible!
