Addictions in whatever form, can often be treated successfully with a combination of Hypnotherapy and NLP, so that after just a few sessions, you can be back in control of your life.
Habits and addictions are behavioral patterns that operate at the level of the ‘unconscious mind.’ This results in seeking substances or behaviours that bring ‘instant gratification’ as a way to move away from discomfort and pain and towards relief and more comfortable pleasurable feelings and emotions. In essence, self medicating with inappropriate substances, i.e. alcohol, drugs, pharmaceuticals, food, shopping etc etc.
Here is Canadian physician Gabor Maté, a specialist in addictions, terminal illnesses, chemical dependents, and HIV positive patients presenting his views on this important topic.
Hypnotherapy works by effectively accessing the ‘unconscious mind’ where the behavioral programming exists and bring about the necessary changes to reduce and then change the unwanted addictive behaviour.
Because changes are being made where the problem actually exists, the chances of bringing about permanent, effective change is greatly enhanced.
It should be noted that many people have been given to believe that addictive behaviour is genetic, and therefore inevitable! While there can be a genetic component to addictive behaviours research coming out of the field of Epigenetics is now demonstrating that the genetic component is no where near as important as the public has been given to believe.
