Control Alcohol with Hypnotherapy

Problem drinking comes in many forms: one or two glasses of wine every evening, occasional intense binges, secret drinking, having to drink to socialise, not being able to stop drinking once you start, heavy drinking every day, to name just a few. Whether you are looking to control your drinking or completely abstain, my confidential, compassionate and non-judgemental service can help you.

Hypno-psychotherapy (the combination of hypnotherapy and psychotherapy techniques) can be a highly effective approach to help you overcome your struggle with alcohol. Sometimes, even when you have battled with alcohol for many years, it is possible to resolve addictive behaviours quickly. In other cases, successfully resolving your relationship with alcohol can be more complex, for example, where there are co-occurring disorders such as depression, anxiety or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). With almost twenty years in clinical practice, I have extensive experience of helping clients across the addiction spectrum. I am also experienced in working with clients that are already utilising other treatment programmes (for example, twelve-step programmes and medical treatment) but require specific additional assistance.

Each client’s journey to recovery is unique, so your programme of therapy will always be tailored to your particular experience, history and needs, but might include:

  • Learning about the causes, symptoms and treatment of alcohol abuse
  • Working together to establish an effective plan to get your habit under control
  • Boosting motivation to change and stick to your goals
  • Changing how you feel about alcohol to reduce its appeal
  • Learning strategies to manage cravings effectively
  • Breaking old drinking habits and associations
  • Building a solid base of self-esteem and self-worth
  • Managing stress, anxiety, depression, anger and guilt without alcohol
  • Resolving past emotional challenges and trauma
  • Dealing with family and interpersonal issues
  • Changing unhelpful thought patterns and beliefs
  • Developing greater self-awareness through mindfulness
  • Building healthy boundaries and emotional resilience
  • Rebalancing your life
  • Training in relapse prevention

Hypno-psychotherapy can help you to make positive changes at many different levels. I draw on effective and established techniques from hypnotherapy, meditation, behavioural- and cognitive- therapies, Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP) and stress management to help you cope effectively with the challenges of life, both internal and external, achieve a real sense of self-worth and take back control of your own behaviour. If you are ready to drink less alcohol get in touch and together we can make this journey as easy as possible for you and you can quickly enjoy all the benefits of being free from your alcohol dependence.
