Addictions

There are many different kinds of addictions but studies have shown hypnotism to be more effective than simply therapy or a placebo when dealing with substance abuse disorders, behavioral addictions.

Typically an addiction begins as a habit - a behavioural pattern that is not particularly damaging. Over time it can become more powerful and advanced, eventually interfering your quality of life.  Addictions are conscious and impulsive responses that can be very difficult to control. 

That's also why hypnotherapy can be so effective - it provides the support and guidance required to alter ingrained behavioural patterns. This enables a patient to treat the underlying cause of their addictive behaviour and rebuild their emotional strength.


Hypnotherapy can help treat all kinds of addictions and aid or support your recovery.

  • Alcohol abuse

  • Substance abuse

  • Gambling

  • Compulsive spending

  • Sex & love addiction


How do you treat addiction and how long will it take?

In your consultation, we'll discuss the challenges you are facing and then use a combination of techniques to help you resolve it. We will uncover behavioural triggers and help to rewrite them, build on and enhance your motivation to change and then help to establish new behaviours. 

The initial consultation for any addiction will focus initially on a brief history and outline of the problem, how it began and the pattern of behaviour as it currently exists. My practice is a judgement-free zone and everything discussed is 100% confidential. 

Most of my clients see changes after one session but we'll discuss what's appropriate for you in your consultation.
