Addictions occur when the mind becomes obsessed with having some “thing” and that becomes the central point of attention. There are many different addictions – alcohol,treetops st austell drugs, sex, gambling – to name a few, but the effect is the same. It becomes all-encompassing and before people realise it – takes over their life.  It becomes so important that everything and everyone else may well be sacrificed for the addiction.  At the very least it is a burden – constantly trying to meet the needs of the addiction while trying to appear ‘normal’ and in control.  That’s exhausting and stressful.  It can feel hopeless.  Free support with alcohol and drug addiction is available via the We Are With You service in Cornwall, click the link to access their page.

How does hypnotherapy help you overcome your addiction?

st austell bridge

There is a way of getting control back of your mind and your life. It will take some effort to achieve, even with hypnotherapy – you will have to use some energy and be committed to it, but it really can be done. The stronger your resolve is, and the greater your determination to succeed, the easier success will be.  How many sessions needed depends on several factors, like the length of time you have had the issue and it’s severity.

Hypnotherapy is a fully conscious, deep relaxation where the mind is more able to take on positive suggestions thus making it easy to change addiction habits and patterns.  You have programmed yourself to follow your addiction by repeatedly doing the same thing and believing it’s out of your control.  Hypnotherapy will help change that programme in your mind, like putting new software into your computer. This will allow you to create new habits, behaviour and thought patterns, to enable you to get back in control. You will only make the changes you want so you are very much in control of your progress.  

st austell cornwallWe begin by looking at your habit and the reasons behind it, and taking a look at its consequences in your life.  This focuses the mind on the need to change.  Then together we’ll set goals.  Hypnotherapy helps to boost your motivation and break the old beliefs that kept you stuck.  I will explain how addictions are created in the brain and give you a number of tools to use to support you in overcoming your addiction. 

While at the same time the trance work reinforces the need to take control by effectively providing alternative ways of functioning.  It’s a powerful and important journey because it will make such a difference to your life and your physical health.  Health is greatly affected by stress and trying to control or hide an addiction is highly stressful, so take the first step to beating it now by clicking here and contacting me.

I would 100% Recommend Julie. I came to Julie and Hypnotherapy after trying other means to regain control of alcohol; it was the best decision I made. Julie really explains how the brain works and gives you the tools to take away to help, and for me, the change started straight away and I’m not looking back! Thank you!  SHARON

Thank you, thank you and thank you. After only 1 session* with you; I have been transformed. 4 months on, and not a drop of alcohol has touched my lips; I am unbelievably amazed how this has happened, and so are my friends and family.

I must admit, I was sceptical about hypnotherapy before I came to see you. I thought hypnotherapy was all about putting people to sleep; like you see on TV.  I couldn’t have been more wrong.

Your time, patience, understanding and non-judgemental approach, has given me insight into how my old weekend drinking habits, affected both my physical and mental health. You have given me a new pair of glasses to view my life through, and a big bag of confidence to make positive changes within it.  I am truly grateful for your advice and support; I will be recommending you to all that I meet. JENNIFER
