Treatment for Addictions

Addictions occur when the mind becomes obsessed with having something 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.

But there is a way out. 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 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 telling yourself 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 and 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.  We begin by looking at your habit and the reasons behind it, and taking a look at it’s consequences in your life.  This focuses the mind on the need to change.  Then together we will set goals.  Hypnotherapy helps to boost your motivation and break the old beliefs that kept you stuck.  

Here are some benefits from breaking free of your addiction;

  • you’ll feel happier and have more joy in your life
  • you’ll have room for new relationships and activities you enjoy
  • you will feel more positive about yourself, now you are back in control – your self esteem will sky rocket
  • you’ll be a positive role model to your children and others around you, which will impact on their decisions about how they live their lives
  • you’ll save money, because most addictions are expensive
  • you’ll feel much calmer and more balanced, without the constant nagging stress of managing your addiction


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 unbelievability 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
