Woman pressing a panic button with stop sign to overcome addiction or dependence problems. Psychology concept.
An addiction is an obsessive, uncontrollable and often harmful attachment to an activity, behaviour or substance. People can become addicted to all sorts of things, but it is most commonly associated with drugs, gambling, alcohol, the Internet, nicotine and food. According to the NHS, around two million people in the UK are struggling with an addiction.

If you are dependent on a particular substance or activity to get through daily life, it is quite likely that you have an addiction. You may be finding it increasingly difficult to control your urges, and your relationships, work life and overall well-being could be starting to suffer.
Hypnotherapy is fastly growing popular with treating Addictions. Hypnosis for addiction aims to get to the root of the problem by inducing a state of heightened awareness in the client. In this relaxed state, the client is more receptive to suggestions and ideas that are compatible with their goals. This allows for me to offer ideas about the substance or activity that the patient is addicted to in order to help them gain control over their addiction. I will provide the support and guidance required to alter the behavioural patterns. Hypnotherapy for addiction can be an effective tool during the early stages of addiction during recovery.

How Hypnotherapy Can Help

Alcohol
Alcoholism is a condition that occurs when a person becomes dependent on alcohol to such an extent that it has a notably deleterious effect on their physical and psychological health, negatively affects their interpersonal relationships, and the effective functioning in the social and economic spheres is curtailed.

From a pharmacological perspective, alcohol is defined as a depressant. Researchers contend that it retards and hampers the transfer of electrical impulses in those areas of the brain that control certain complex human psychological processes. It helps the person to relax; it stops the person from worrying about what others may think of them and allows them to enjoy themself. It helps relieve distress brought about by depression and tension, and makes the reality from which the person wishes to escape seem more bearable.
Substance Misuse & Dependancy
The term ‘substance’ may refer to drugs, medication or a toxin (poison caused by bacteria). Human beings have made use of various substances to improve their physical or psychological condition since the earliest times.

Originally the aim was primarily to relieve physical pain, but attempts at relieving psychological distress and discomfort are showing a dramatic proliferation. Unfortunately, the increase in the use of substances has lead to them being misused or abused, resulting in more and more psychological distress and misery. Prescription drugs as medication are readily available and medication sold over the counter contributes to the problem.
