Nobody in life sets out to become an addict, it very often starts as a way to go to a different place, to get away from things, or to get that incredible rush.
When we can’t get enough of that feeling or the escapism we seek, we then want more and more. This can lead to self destructive behaviour endangering our emotional and physical well being.
Once you have that addiction it can be very difficult to let go. You want to relive the experience again & again even though you know its no good for you and you really need to stop.
In the case of some addictions such as substance abuse, alcohol, drugs it also produces physical withdrawal symptoms as well making you feel unwell and down making it even more difficult to quit.
I can help you deal with breaking the addiction by helping you on a subconscious level see things differently and giving you the emotional strength to help break the pattern of returning to that same self destructive behaviour.
Every individual is different and has a different reason why they became an addict, so each consultation is developed for that individual and there particular problem.
I believe in making my therapy fit the individuals needs and not making the individual fit my therapy.
Here are some texts or e mails I have recieved from people with addiction problems:
” Hi Steve, I just thought I’d drop you a quick email to let you know how I am going after my 3 hypnotherapy sessions I have had with you with regard to my gambling addiction. I feel wonderful and have no urge to play on the online Casinos. I knew after the second session that I felt differently. I can’t quite believe it though how you have done it, you are a miracle worker. I just want to thank you also for giving me more confidence and self esteem. All the best! “
” Hi Steve I just wanted to say thank you for the help with my problems! I was in a dark place gambling and drinking far too much, also with some personal problems! After only seeing u twice , the gambling has stopped and I’m so much happier in myself! I will probably come back again to keep on top of everything in a few weeks! Thanks again for all ur help! “
