Overcoming Habits & Addictions

Hypnotherapy can play an important -often crucial - role in helping to recover from an addiction or overcome a habit. Specifically, hypnosis can be used to reinforce the positive changes in behaviour sought by those seeking to break their addictions.

There are many well-established programmes, such as Alcoholics and Narcotics Anonymous, and methods for addiction treatment. The biggest challenge for most addicts is "staying clean¨ after the initial rehabilitation or cessation programme. Hypnotherapy can be used effectively to reinforce good behaviour during this period.

It is now believed that drug addiction is completely treatable, and experts stress that any particular individual requires a programme specifically tailored to their particular needs. People addicted to drugs can hope to recover and lead productive lives, although long-term maintenance and aftercare is sometimes required to prevent relapse.

The ultimate goals of treatment are to enable a person to achieve lasting abstinence from their particular addiction or habit, prevent relapse, and to allow the person to integrate with society as an addiction-free or habit-free person.

Like people with other diseases such as diabetes or heart disease, people being treated for addictions need to learn to change their behaviours to adopt a healthier lifestyle. Preventing relapse is necessary for maintaining the effect of the withdrawal treatment, and setting the person up for long-term success. This is undoubtedly where hypnotherapy can help.

Addictions which can be helped with hypnosis include:

  • Alcohol (Binge Drinking, Moderation, Alcoholism)
  • Anorexia
  • Bulimia
  • Caffeine
  • Chewing Tobacco
  • Chocolate
  • Drugs (soft or hard: Cannabis, Cocaine, Heroin, Methadone)
  • Gambling
  • Mobile Phone/Computer Dependency
  • Nicotine (see Quitting Smoking)
  • Nicotine Gum
  • Prescription Medication (e.g Anti-Depressants, Tranquilisers)
  • Salt or Sugar
  • Shopping/Spending Money
  • Soft Drinks

Both addictions and habits can respond well to the use of hypnotherapy, often in much the same way: breaking negative, damaging, thought patterns and behaviours, and replacing them with healthy, positive, beneficial ones.

Habits which can be helped with hypnosis include:

  • Adult Enuresis (bed-wetting)
  • Adult Thumb/finger Sucking
  • Belching, excessive
  • Blushing
  • Bruxism (teeth-grinding)
  • Chewing Hair
  • Knuckle Cracking
  • Mouth/Cheek Biting
  • Nail Biting
  • Nervous Twitch
  • Obsessive Behaviour
  • Sleep talking
  • Sleep Walking
  • Snoring
  • Trichotillomania (compulsive hair pulling)
  • Unwanted Thought Patterns
