Alcohol Abuse

Many people enjoy drinking alcohol, it can help them to relax and let go a little.  It is a drug – albeit a legal drug and it’s a very popular drug.  

For some people that habit of relaxing or letting go with alcohol can become a little too ingrained.  It might be that relaxing or de-stressing in the evening with a few beers or a bottle of wine has become the norm, waking up the following day feeling a bit hungover and tired.  For others perhaps a night out involves binging on more alcohol than their body can cope with, leading to embarrassing or even dangerous consequences.  We’re bombarded with adverts for alcohol which have popularised it, and made it much more acceptable to drink any time, anywhere, whilst giving minimal warning about the dangers of drinking too much.

I can help you take back control around alcohol.  Book a discovery call to find out  more about my bespoke 1 to 1, confidential, non-judgemental sessions.  

Drug Abuse

Often when people take recreational drugs for the first time, they have a very pleasant experience.  Over time they might experiment with different drugs, different quantities and different drug combinations, before they realise they realise they have a problem.  For some inappropriate drug use might have began with a genuine medical reason to use a drug e.g codeine for pain, but the habitual drug use is still there even though the issue has long gone.

The compulsion to use drugs can become so strong that it can feel as though we have no control.  Typical reasons why people might enlist my help are physical health concerns, mental health concerns e.g. experiencing anxiety or paranoia, financial concerns, relationship problems, or because its affecting their career or business. 

I can help you find your way out of the drug trap.  My programs are 1 to 1, confidential, non-judgemental and tailored to you.  Book a discovery call to find out  more.

 

 

Solving Your Problem

Whatever your reasons for beginning to use the substance, your brain took that habit on for you so you don’t have to think about it anymore.  In time your brain may have generalised that behaviour, taking it into other situations  e.g. when you’re bored or stressed, leacing you feling out of control.   I can help you find healthier more appropriate ways to achieve any positive intention behind the habit.

You have a lifetime of experience of changing habits and this is just another habit that you can change.  You once crawled to get around but then you became motivated to learn to walk, you kept pushing yourself up until eventually you could stand.  Gradually you began to take steps, stumbling sometimes and getting back up again.  Eventually your habit of walking was established, you still know how to crawl but you choose to walk instead because walking is so much more effective than crawling. 

The human brain is amazing and adaptive.  We can speed up the process of change by use of hypnosis and other psychological tools and techniques to create new neural pathways in the brain.  

Breaking Addictive Chains

Triggers

Every habit is initiated by a trigger and results in a reward.   We identify the triggers  (people, places, times, emotions, events) and install alternative behaviours that are at least as immediate, satisfying and rewarding.

Thriving

Human beings have physical needs e.g the need to eat, shelter, etc., and also emotional needs e.g. being part of a wider community, attention, meaning and purpose. I’ll coach you towards getting these needs met so that you can thrive.

 

Be Naturally High On Life

Whatever the substance that you’re using, one thing I know is that you either use it to get a good feeling or to avoid a bad feeling.  You have the natural ability to change the way you feel at any time without that substance.  

How elated will you feel when you know that you’ve put this problem behind you?  How good will your life be when you’ve overcome this problem?  How will your work, relationships,, health and finances be enhanced?  You are so much more and are capable of so much more than you can ever dream.  Take those first few steps to freedom.  This is a two way process so have an open mind for a very different experience.  Expect to be taught fast effective techniques which will accelerate your path to freedom.
