Stopping addictions can be one of the hardest things to try to do by just using willpower alone. There are more pressures than ever in today’s society: people are working very hard and juggling work and family commitments. Sometimes turning to alcohol or drugs or even gambling or shopping, makes the stress seem a little easier. But it’s short lived, the high or the fix soon wears off, and you’re left feeling empty, low, sometimes even hating yourself. It’s a hard place to be.
Addictions can be about buried feelings too. I help my clients in Mayfair and Tunbridge Wells discover what trauma and pain is behind the addiction, using a gentle, non stressful approach, and then work with you to clear those feelings and reframe them with stronger and happier thoughts. When someone makes the decision to stop smoking or be free of their addiction, a lot of the work is about changing the routine and any limiting beliefs in your subconscious mind about what smoking, or drinking, or gambling, or whatever your addiction might be, means to you. Breaking an addiction can be hard on you, you’re letting go of something that’s been part of your daily life for a long time, but the feeling of being free and back in control is even better, and it’s so rewarding seeing clients lighter and happier having stopped the behaviour that was taking over their lives.
With hypnotherapy I can change how you think about your addiction by getting to the core issue and clearing the triggers, then helping you to be better equipped to manage your life without the addiction, with the right mindset and motivation. Whether it’s a dependence on alcohol, or sleeping tablets, or painkillers, or you want to stop smoking, or gambling, or just want to change your behaviour in certain situations, hypnotherapy can help you do this quickly and with lasting results. So don’t struggle on your own any longer, I will help you to stop.
