Alcoholism and drug addictions can be arrested. Hypnotherapy can provide a profound influence to increase chances of successful abstinence by:
- Understanding personal triggers
- Changing patterns of self-sabotage
- Releasing past trauma
- Reducing cravings
- Creating a stable and solid foundation for a lifetime of recovery
Hypnotherapy may assist you to recover from the clutches of addiction by training your brain to ‘step out’ of the addictive state before it happens.
Hypnotherapy that is used for addiction comes along later in the rehabilitation process. The person needs to completely detoxify their system before they even consider undergoing hypnosis, and this usually means spending weeks or even months cleaning up. Withdraw from certain substances, such as alcohol, needs to be monitored by a medical professional. The reason is simple – some substances have withdrawal that can kill you.
Hypnosis can be effective as a treatment for addiction is if the person being hypnotized really wants to give up their destructive habits and behaviors.
Hypnosis can help you:
Stop drinking alone
Stop drinking wine nightly with dinner
Drink only on social occasions
Drink in moderation when you do go out
Pace yourself if you drink
Stop drinking completely
Have more fun with less alcohol
Whatever your goals, hypnosis can help you to drink in moderation, only socially, or quit completely if that is your goal.
This is an issue that responds well to hypnosis. Anything that we can tell the subconscious mind to stay away from, it seems to understand.
Over the years I’ve successfully worked with hundreds of clients who felt they were drinking in excess or who felt it was time to stop before they developed a dependency.
Often it starts out having a glass of wine with dinner occasionally, but now it’s turning into a nightly habit. Some people want to drink only when they are out socially, and then limit themselves to one or two. Others want to quit completely. It’s up to you.
How does hypnosis work for drinking too much?
Basically, my program consists of addressing the underlying reasons why you’re drinking, starting with reducing the stress, worry and boredom that can lead to excess. Then I give you new tools to relax and unwind or comfort yourself.
Powerful NLP techniques, creative visualizations, time progression and other tools are used for maximum results. In some cases aversion techniques are also used. I use a combination of visualizations, direct suggestions, aversions and rewards to elicit the desired behaviour.
Can hypnosis really help?
Yes, it can. Just as with smoking and eating sweets, hypnosis can take away the desire for wine and alcohol, so that it’s easier to just say no. Hypnosis can also help you to pace yourself, stop after just one or two, and reach for water or a non-alcoholic beverage instead.
In their own words…real client results…
“I have been sober since my first session. Alcohol is no longer controlling my life! I listened to the recordings of your session daily for several months. I want to send you my sincere thanks!” Sharon L.
“I used to enjoy a 1/2 bottle of wine with my husband in the evenings, but I am pleased to tell you that I haven’t touched a glass since I last saw you‚ and haven’t even missed it. Now I’m sleeping better as well.” Julie B.
“I want to be able to pace myself when I drink. I used to get so out of control at parties and events that I’d embarrass myself. Sometimes I’d meet a cute guy and I’d be slurring my words. Not very attractive. Hypnosis has helped me to pace myself and drink much less. I now have a glass of water between drinks, and it’s helped a lot!” Karen B.
“I was up to a bottle of wine a night, and I have a small toddler. I realized this had to stop. The best thing I ever did was to see you for hypnosis. I feel like I’m reconnecting with my daughter and my relationship with my husband has improved. And I feel like exercising again and to be honest, living again.” Tanya H.
“I’ve gotten into a bad habit of putting away a few hard drinks every night. It hasn’t affected my work yet but I don’t want this to go any further. I feel like I have an addictive personality, so I came to see you to quit completely. Hypnosis has worked far better than I expected. I was able to quit completely after two sessions. Unbelievable. I don’t even think about drinking anymore. “Nick T.
“These are all true case histories. However, results will vary from individual to individual depending on how well you respond to hypnosis, how many sessions you do, how often you listen to the recordings.”
“My drinking was starting to get out of control and was affecting my job and relationships. I usually binged on weekends and drank heavily during the week as well. My girlfriend said if I don’t quit she is going to break up with me. Drinking heavily runs in my family, so I was a bit sceptical about whether or not this would work, but I knew a friend who used it to quit smoking and wanted to give it a try. After our first session, I went all day Saturday without a drink. Normally I would have started around noon. Finally at 11pm at night I said to me “well, it is Saturday night. I could have one drink.” And so I poured myself one and drank only a few sips. I really didn’t even want any more of it. This is amazing. It wasn’t like I had to argue with myself. I just didn’t want one. This is the first time in years I’ve gone over a week without a drink. I feel like I’m getting my life back. Now I want my brother to see you.” Fred S.
