Experimentation - Addictive behaviour tends to start with curiosity and the desire to try something new. Very rarely do people set out to become psychologically and physically addicted to something.
Regular use - Some people try something once and never do it again, but there are those who will actively aim to recreate the experience. At this stage quality of life is not affected. Increased use - What might have begun as a temporary form of relief or escape will have quickly escalated to frequent use. At this stage warning signs start to appear and risky behaviour may emerge.
Dependence - This is when the user finds they can no longer function normally or happily without taking the particular substance or carrying out an activity.
Withdrawal symptoms are strong and despite negative consequences the user cannot give up.
How can you help me?
Hypnosis for addiction aims to get to the root of your problem by inducing a state of heightened awareness in you. In this relaxed state, you are more receptive to suggestions and ideas that are compatible with your goals. This allows me to offer ideas about the substance or activity that you are addicted to in order to help you gain control over your addiction. I can provide the support and guidance required to alter ingrained behavioural patterns. This enables you to treat the underlying cause of your addictive behaviour and rebuild your emotional strength. Hypnotherapy for addiction can be a very effective tool during the early stages of addiction during recovery.
