Addiction Treatment

Hypnotherapy has a great success record with helping people break their addiction. Substance dependencies may result in serious health problems. When a habit becomes as ingrained, it is incredibly difficult to leave behind because it enters so many parts of our lives. The physical craving can be intense, driven by the substance dependency and so can the emotional satisfaction one gets from caving in. The great advantage that Hypnotherapy has over all other systems for quitting is that it deals with all the elements– helping you to overcome this dependency, giving you the confidence, and self-belief, to become clean once and for all.

Many people who have tried to quit return to their substance of choice at times of stress, or crisis, feeling that they need the emotional relief that they think it gives them. Hypnotherapy can prevent these relapses by removing the underline causation, giving you the self-confidence, and self-belief, to not need the false emotional support. It can also show you techniques for tapping into your own resources of calmness and self-confidence.
