Addressing Addiction

An increasing number of people are finding themselves in the grip of an addiction, the inability to control their actions or behaviours.

The UK charity, Action on Addiction reports that as many as 1 in 3 people are addicted to something, be it substance abuse through drugs, alcohol and nicotine or behavioural addictions such as gambling or social media.

The Guardian reported, at the height of the COVID-19 lockdown, that an increasing number of people were turning to alcohol as a way of dealing with the mental health pressures of isolation, stress and lack of contact with loved ones.

Recovery from poor habits or destructive addictions is not always easy but with the right help, determination and strong support networks it is achievable.

Hypnotherapy can be hugely beneficial, supplementing medical treatment, in helping people as they work to overcome their addictions. In my clinic, I work with clients to:

  1. Work through the root causes of their addiction and address any underlying trauma or experiences.
  2. Establish new habits and healthier choices.
  3. Address the physical and emotional symptoms of anxiety, stress and withdrawal. Hypnotherapy is a deeply relaxing and calming experience!
  4. Teach self-hypnosis techniques that can be used at any time, especially when things are feeling tough!

You don’t need to suffer with poor choices, destructive habits or addictions.

The road to recovery may not always be easy but it will be worth it…
