Addiction

Hypnotherapy in Ipswich for Addiction or Habit

Alcohol Drugs or Gambling or Eating or Sex or many other Addictions or Habits

Addiction and other unwanted habits and addictions can be treated: get to the root of the problem and stop. Let’s deal with why you need to tranquillise yourself with overeating or alcohol or drugs or gambling or whatever.

There is a problem with the whole way that addiction is often approached which involves constantly affirming that you are an ‘addict.’

While this recognition is productive once – it does not help you move on.

I am focussed on understanding the WHY of the whole thing and finding replacements for what the habit is medicating. You made the ‘addiction’ and you can undo it.

The patience of loved ones, family and friends, is finite – you cannot expect sympathy and propping you up forever. At some point it is down to you what happens and how  it affects others. I will help you take action to find a new way forward.

Overcoming addictions can include a wide range such as shopping, exercise, porn, good, gambling, as well as drugs such as weed, heroin, coke, prescribed drugs and alcohol and more.

You need hope and optimism and we need to move beyond the old disease model of addictions. A good hypnotherapist can help you successfully move beyond and manage your addiction.

Hypnosis to stop drinking alcohol or reduce your intake

It is easy to get into the habit of self medicating with alcohol to “wind down” – but if you find that you cannot do without a half bottle or more of wine or use alcohol to excess then you may have a problem.

The important thing is to find substitute strategies for abuse of alcohol and look at the triggers. The approach using Hypnotherapy and NLP is holistic and enables you to stop constantly affirming to yourself that you have a problem with alcohol. If you do that you may find that it seems impossible to surmount! Addressing the reasons why you feel a need for alcohol may well go a long way to enabling your control of the alcohol habit or even putting it behind you.

Hypnotherapy in Ipswich for AUD or Alcohol Addiction, or rather, habitual use of alcohol

This is now called AUD or Alcohol Use Disorder – so called Addiction and other unwanted habits can be treated – get to the root of the problem and stop.

Let’s deal with why you need to tranquillise yourself with alcohol. Is it because you suffer from depression, PTSD, lack of confidence anxiety or stress or something else?

If so let’s deal with the reasons why you are a problem drinker.

Let’s find another strategy that doesn’t involve killing yourself with using too much booze.

Hypnosis to either stop drinking alcohol or reduce your intake:

It is easy to get into the habit of self medicating with alcohol to “wind down” – but if you find that you cannot do without a half bottle or more of wine or use alcohol to excess then you may have a problem.
The important thing is to find substitute strategies for abuse of alcohol and look at the triggers. The approach using Hypnotherapy and NLP is holistic and enables you to stop constantly affirming to yourself that you have a problem with alcohol.

While it is important to recognise that you have a problem but do you really need to keep saying: “I am an addict.” ? Doesn’t that just reaffirm that you are a Helpless victim?

How far ARE you an addict? Could you go a week without any alcohol in the House? Could you last an aeroplane flight without drinking alcohol? If so then you could master this coping habit. It has got out of control and you can learn to undo that habit that you created. You can learn to either control it or stop drinking alcohol forever or just for now.

Addressing the reasons why you might feel a need for alcohol may well go a long way to enabling your control of the alcohol habit or even putting it behind you. Constantly telling yourself that you “have a problem” – will not DEAL with the problem – you will simply manage it. The habit will seem as if it is always there waiting to ambush you in certain circumstances which could trigger a downward spiral into dependency.

You don’t need to be a “victim”. Firstly if you understand your triggers then you could find alternate ways to deal with the cravings for alcohol abuse. Treat boredom, trauma, depression, anxiety, stress PTSD, low self esteem and so on. Then you may discover that there is actually no need for self medication with drinking to excess. You can be Captain of your ship. You can accept the consequences of your actions. You can repair wherever you need repair. You can move forward without problem drinking. You can end your toxic relationship with booze. Work with me.

Learn how to be in control – in a sense you have a malfunctioning software program that needs an upgrade – there are many things you could do instead of using alcohol. Learning how to be solution focussed rather than seeing a problem will always help. These two different mindsets lead to very different outcomes: one is a struggle the other is not. In the case of one you regard failure as useful feedback rather than an excuse to drink too much alcohol.

If you get stressed or anxious you will understand the mechanism of this and how to overcome worry stress and anxiety or even panic. As experienced as I am – I cannot wave a magic wand – it takes work and if you work with me we can move you forward.

Moving beyond Marijuana and Cocaine Crack Heroin and other habitual drug dependency – Hypnosis for Drug Addiction

You can learn how to reduce or stop dependence on marijuana, “wacky baccy”, crack or coke, or heroin by recreating the state at will with self hypnosis and, more importantly, dealing with why you needed drugs in the first place.

Drugs only mask the problems. They will not address them. It is easy to get into the desperate cycle of stealing or borrowing money to get a fix only to find that the closest people to you run out of patience. Hypnotherapy for drug addiction is a course to try to help you get back to leading a positive Life again.

Wean yourself off the drug habit.

Hypnosis to stop addiction to prescription drugs

Many people who are depressed, in pain, or anxious or stressed, may be using drugs needlessly. While I would never suggest going off meds without a Doctor’s permission – I have seen people who were suffering finding that they could manage without medication.

Clients with daily headaches with no discernible physiological problem where their Doctor suggested that it was psychological and the headaches largely disappeared with hypnotherapy strategies.

Clients with Depression and Anxiety or even Anger or Stress able to manage their issue with hypnosis and strategies worked out in sessions.

Let me work with you and your Doctor.

Disclaimer: If you take prescription drugs you should always consult your Doctor before changing your prescription. As with any therapy individual results will vary.  The best way to discover if hypnotherapy is for you is to take a look through the site and come for a free initial consultation so that you can make an informed decision

Hypnosis to stop overeating – treating food addiction

It is easy to self medicate with food when stressed anxious depressed or bored but hypnosis can help you lose weight and holistically deal with the root of the problem.

Overeating, binge eating, compulsive eating or even picking and nibbling are NOT the answer and often just lead to guilt, negative self talk, and more overeating.

Dieting is not really the answer as diets fail most of the time and the moment you go back to old eating habits – back comes the weight.

It is important to understand why you overeat and find a strategy to stop doing that. Learn how to eat just enough and no more. Get motivated. Forget calorie counting or the many gimmick diets or wonder pills – this is tried and tested.

Sex or Porn Addiction

Using porn excessively or finding it impossible to form a relationship because of social anxiety or past trauma or some physiological or psychological problem such as impotence can be treated with hypnosis. Often there is a sense of a wound that needs to be healed with over dependence on porn.

Hypnotherapy for Gambling Addiction

 

 

 

 

 

A client came to see me dragged in by his fiancée because he had just blown £25,000 on online gambling. “Fix him!” she said angrily.

I asked him if he wanted to be fixed and he did – so we worked together using Hypnosis NLP and Counselling and also addressed some deep seated reasons for his use of Gambling.

Gambling is often referred to as an addiction which implies that you will find difficulty weaning yourself off it – I believe it is a habit that can be undone by the person who established the habit of having a gamble – explored more here on my sister site:
