Addiction & Dependency
How your habits, addiction and dependency might be making you feel
Trapped and out of control, hopeless, all you can think about is when next. Whatever the addiction of choice, (gambling, drinking, drugs, sex, exercise, self-harming, food bingeing, purging and others), know that you are one of many millions who are coping with underlying issues through this activity. When this is understood the addictive activity will lose its power over you.
How I can help you
During our initial consultation we shall together discuss your experiences in a relaxed and fully confidential environment. I will be able to reassure you of your quick progress, work on strategies to help yourself during your daily life and provide a relaxation reprogramming under hypnosis. During later sessions we shall go into in-depth specific treatment and will be closely monitoring your progress tailored to your immediate needs.
How does hypnotherapy work?
Unlike what one might have come to expect from the entertainment industry hypnotherapy is psychotherapy as devised by Freud in 1887. Hypnotherapy simply relaxes you to the point of allowing you to understand issues clearly and to apply the solution as directly as possible, avoiding the laborious conscious learning process. Addiction generally masks a need or deeper set problem which is being ignored. It is this cause that is addressed during our talking therapy and hypnosis sessions.
What happens during a hypnotherapy session?
Following an in depth consultation I will be able to deliver a full hypnotherapy session. Throughout you will be fully aware and conscious while I simply sit and talk. You are fully in control throughout the very pleasant and relaxing time. You will leave feeling relaxed, calm and hopeful.
