Addictions ruin people’s lives and those of the ones they care about most. Through our unique techniques using hypnosis and other neural sciences learn how to successfully control the problem and stop.
At HTH we have helped many clients to quit their addictions that have often occurred for decades.
Just a few of the addictions we have worked with are:
- Eating and/or Certain Food Addictions
- Substance Abuse
We have found that people use their addictions for certain reasons. They may use their addiction to deal with stress of anxiety or perhaps just to unwind. Gambling for example is often used to help to deal with stress and unwind but it doesn’t really work. Some of our clients have spent tens of thousands of dollars a year on pokies or some other form of gambling. The only ones who win are the ones who own the machines. The only way to deal with this problem is to quit totally and stay completely free – always!
It is useful to find other ways to relax such as new activities (that ideally are not expensive) and self hypnosis. Some clients just need to break the pattern; others need to deal with the underlying issues that led to the problem in the first place.
Alcohol can cause a wide range of problems including abusive behaviour to family and friends, the dangers of drunk driving, health risks, expense, and not being able to function properly at work. Some clients I have worked with need to learn to control their use of alcohol, others need to quit totally.
For some people drug use is a nuisance – for others it can be life threatening. Marijuana for example is very commonly used and some people can take it or leave it. But some smoke every day or even several times a day. There are other drugs that are almost guaranteed to lead to disaster e.g. Speed, Ice, Ecstasy and Heroin. Learning to change your mind about the habit and being committed to being free can make all the difference.
Chocolate, Coca Cola, Coffee
Addiction to chocolate can be expensive, unhealthy, cause weight and skin problems and be a nuisance. Clients have felt so much better giving up with addictions to chocolate, as well as coke and coffee. As one of my clients said recently “no chocolate of any form has passed my lips since my 2006 session with you … success!”
