Solution focussed hypnotherapy for addiction aims to get to the root of the problem by inducing a state of heightened awareness in the client. In this relaxed state, the client is more receptive to suggestions and ideas that are compatible with their goals. This allows me to offer ideas about the substance or activity that the client is addicted to in order to help them gain control over their addiction.
I will provide the support and guidance required to alter ingrained behavioural patterns. This enables a client to treat the underlying cause of their addictive behaviour and rebuild their emotional strength.
During the initial consultation, I will explain how the brain works in relation to addiction. How we suffer in the way we do and what we can do about it. This explanation will help clients gain an understanding of why we develop addictions and also help clients identify how they want their lives to be in the future.
Subsequent weekly sessions will focus on positive, future visualisation and hypnosis.
Solution focussed hypnotherapy helps clients regain control of their lives and move forward positively and effectively. The effectiveness of the therapy relies on the clients motivation to make positive changes.
