Compulsive behaviours and habits are negative behaviours and patterns that may interfere with a person’s ability to live a happy, healthy and fulfilled life.
Behind most compulsive behaviour and substance abuse is trauma, and often the person is unaware of their trauma. Unaware that their behaviour is a limiting coping strategy because they’ve been doing it for so long it’s ingrained and invisible. Dependency on sugar, alcohol, coffee or other drugs, as well as gambling, phones, texting, sex or shopping. Most of these are burdens to people and often harshly judged by others. Socially acceptable obsessive behaviour to work, power and material gain are often perceived as virtues or strengths and favourably judged. Still, all are negative and have consequences.
Common behaviour we treat with hypnotherapy include:
- binge drinking
- impulse shopping
Hypnotherapy bypasses the conscious mind allowing direct access to the subconscious.
Trying to rid yourself of a bad habit is often unsuccessful. Until the core reason is resolved the conscious and subconscious minds will not be working together as one. In the hypnotic state, we can uncover the core issue that’s nearly always a trauma and then replace the old unwanted patterns with new positive ones. I offer all my clients a highly effective and personalised service before the hypnotherapy all concerns and goals are covered in depth.
This allows the treatment to be focused, targeted and effective. The hypnotherapy session process itself is pleasant and relaxing after treatment clients experience calmness, clarity and enhanced control over their decision-making processes.
Clinical hypnotherapy may not be suitable as a sole treatment for all types of behaviours. If you are currently working with a psychologist or psychiatrist, please consult them as to whether hypnosis can be added to your treatment plan.
Our hypnotherapy sessions for managing compulsive behaviour are tailored exactly to you. Before the hypnosis begins, we’ll discuss your exact reasons for wanting to quit, and then use these exact, personal motivations to communicate with your subconscious mind.
We’ll also provide you with an audio recording of your tailored session so that you can listen to it in future.
