Using hypnosis for addictions helps us work with the unconscious mind. The unconscious mind is responsible for 95% of our thoughts and behaviours and its purpose is to protect us, not make us happy! Being protected doesn’t mean you are happy or flourishing though, does it?
Do you ever say “I don’t know why I keep doing this”, “I just can’t seem to stop myself” – this shows you are not consciously making these decisions. This is why using Hypnotherapy for addictions can be insightful and effective.
By working with the unconscious enables us to uncover the root causes of addictions and to heal those wounds, so you can begin to look at your future. A future that you want and deserve. Click here for a video that explains this
All too often I hear “what’s wrong with me?”
What difference would it make if you saw your addiction as your coping mechanism – it’s probably been very effective at keeping you protected. In a safe space, we work at your pace to explore the root cause of your addiction. Whether it’s alcohol, drugs, smoking, gambling, shopping, sex, exercise……fill in your own addiction, this is the symptom of a deeper root cause
Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) techniques are used to identify limiting beliefs that contribute towards addictive behaviours. Combining NLP with hypnotherapy for addictions enables us to look at language, patterns and thought processes. So, we can empower you to reframe and rewire negative patterns and build strong foundations for long term recovery.
Your addiction is unique to you and therefore so is the way that we work together. We explore experiences, traumas and belief systems that may have shaped your relationship with addictive substances or behaviours.
If we only work at the symptom level then alcohol could be replaced by weed, cigarettes by food and so on. All at your pace.
I use a mix of Hypnotherapy, NLP & Recovery Coaching to get you to the future you want. I may set you some tasks to do in-between sessions and send you personalised recordings. This work builds on what we do in sessions.
This is coaching for lasting transformation. By providing guidance, encouragement and accountability in a safe and supportive environment. Building resilience, developing coping mechanisms for you to embrace your new life of freedom.
If you need support with detoxing then this is beyond my expertise. Please refer to other centres such as Recovery Lighthouse
I’ve worked hard, I’ve partied hard and I’m an ex-smoker. I have also seen the impact that addictions can have on people.
What can start out as a bit of fun – drinking with friends, a little flutter, smoking a joint – can become addictive behaviour where you find temporary relief, suffer negative consequences and struggle to stop.
How addictions affect a person’s self worth “what’s wrong with me, why can’t I stop?” and the blame cycle and the need to be soothed continues.
As humans, we posses an incredible capacity for self-protection. Some addictions are deemed more acceptable by society than others but when you strip it back, an addiction is an addiction and is serving a purpose – we are all trying to do the best we can in life.
None of us are defined by our past and everyone has a past. What’s important is what you want for your future and the steps we could take together as you work towards it.

If we keep doing the same thing, we get the same results. Maybe today is the day you do something different to begin changing?
You might be surprised at the difference reaching out can have on you, your business and your wider circle.
