Hypnotherapy can also greatly help reduce withdrawal symptoms, which means you can carry on with your life free from the old unwanted behaviour that made you so dependent on the substance you were using.Most addictions are psychological rather than purely physical in nature, and that’s why hypnosis can be such a powerful tool in dismantling the addiction. It’s rarely necessary in hypnotherapy to dig down into all the reasons why someone is addicted, or to explore exactly what it is that they get from the addiction (there are always pay offs of some kind – the individual is not always consciously aware of exactly what those pay offs are). These are aspects of the addiction that the individual may want to explore at some stage, but initially they simply need help in breaking the destructive patterns that have taken such a strangle hold on their life, and in dealing with the immediate psychological and emotional issues involved.
In hypnosis a state of relaxation and heightened awareness is induced which enables the subject to be more accepting of appropriate suggestions, to think logically and clearly, and to adopt a more positive approach to life in general. Also, because the unconscious mind is accessed in hypnosis, that unconscious mind can be gently “programmed” to support the individual’s desire to kick whatever habit they have become addicted to and to take full control of their life again.
Realistic goals can be agreed, and hypnosis used to “lock” those goals in place and to maximise motivation. Strategies for staying motivated between sessions can be specifically designed for each individual – everyone’s situation is unique to them – and triggers put in place under hypnosis to give the individual the best possible chance of success.
As a highly qualified and experienced hypnotherapist, I can support you to move on from your addiction – quickly, safely and confidentially. It is important that before treatment can take place, the individual must want to give up or have already given up for a number of days.
