Alcohol Dependence, Addiction and Binge Drinking

Has your drinking got out of control?

Do you think that you are a Binge Drinker? do you feel that alcohol is ruling your life?

The NHS definition of binge drinking is drinking lots of alcohol in a short space of time or drinking to get drunk or feel the effects of alcohol.

Can Hypnotherapy help you?

Alcohol abuse and related issues are one of the most common problems that clients come to see me about. If you are a binge drinker or perhaps you feel that your drinking has got out of control, you may feel that you are addicted to alcohol. Perhaps you want to give up alcohol completely or want to be able to enjoy a drink socially as any normal drinker does, then Hypnotherapy could help you.

Working together we should be able to reprogram your mind to learn how to have just one or two drinks to enjoy yourself and then be able to easily stop drinking alcohol, changing to your favourite soft drink, or help you to stop drinking alcohol for good, the choice is yours. I use a combination of Hypnotherapy (suggestion) and NLP or BWRT® to re programme your mind enabling you to have control over how much alcohol you drink.

What I need from you is your Commitment and Motivation to succeed.

Do any of these situations seem familiar to you?

  • Do you behave badly, aggressively when drinking?
  • Are you worried about alcohol related illness?
  • Are you gaining weight from drinking too much alcohol?
  • Does alcohol affect your sporting performance?
  • Is there any peer pressure to drink alcohol?
  • Do you drink just to get drunk?
  • Is alcohol affecting your relationships? Your sex life?
  • How much are you spending on alcohol? Can you remember what you did last night? If you can are you embarrassed?
  • Once you start drinking you don't know when to stop?
  • Do you need alcohol to help with confidence?

I have seen clients who were worried, distressed and scared as they cannot remember what they did the previous evening. There are instances where clients have passed out on trains, ending up at the end of the line, anything could have happened, luckily nothing did but it was a wake-up call and also very expensive as they had to get home in the small hours. This hits very hard as they realise that their drinking is way out of control.

Clients have told me that they can quite easily spend a few hundred pounds over a binge drinking weekend, with very little to show for it apart from an empty purse and a headache. I could go on but if you drink, some of this may already be familiar to you.

If you want to control your alcohol consumption instead of it controlling you then give me a call on 07702684568

What Happens During the Sessions?

Firstly there is your FREE initial consultation (which lasts about 30 -45 minutes) we can find out more about what you hope to gain from therapy, how long you have had the problem and how it affects you.. You will also be able to get a better understanding of hypnotherapy, BWRT® and how you may benefit. I will be able to answer any questions and ease any doubts you might still have allowing you to make an informed decision about whether to proceed with therapy. At the end of the consultation, there is absolutely no obligation to continue.

If you decide to continue then sessions are tailored to suit you and vary from client to client. How many sessions will depend on the individual client, sometimes it can take only 1 or 2 others may take more  The length of each is approximately 1 hour.

The First Session

The first session will be looking at your reasons for drinking, how long, how much, social influences etc. also if you are looking to give up alcohol for good or still be able to drink sensibly. We will look for the root of why you are drinking which will give you a much better chance of success, as will your obvious motivation, you wouldn’t be reading this if you weren’t!  We also need commitment, you have mine, how about you?

We may have to look into any self-esteem or confidence issues separately but these will become apparent as we progress.

Subsequent Sessions

Subsequent sessions will generally consist of being placed into hypnosis, perhaps with some gentle music in the background, and then you will be helped to resolve your problem by retraining your thinking about the way you handle your alcohol consumption. I normally use a combination of Hypnotherapy (suggestion) and NLP which I have found to be very effective. During the relaxed state, by using beneficial and positive suggestions you should be able to strengthen and visualise your desired outcome, helping you to control your alcohol intake or leave alcohol and binge drinking in the past.

I charge £70 per session . For some clients two or three sessions have been enough to stop the binge drinking and considerably reduce alcohol consumption.

If we decide to use BWRT® (which does not use trance work), I will explain the process to you so you can make an informed choice.
