Hypnotherapy – A Proven Method For Overcoming Addictions For Hope

If you’re dealing with your problems by abusing drugs, alcohol, food, or indulging in other self-destructive behavior such as gambling, the issue remains the same – addiction. Hypnotherapy can be a valuable tool in the battle against your addiction habit.  

For lasting transformation, you need to tap into your vast unconscious mind. Your unconscious mind is the storehouse for those unhelpful, limiting, and automatic beliefs getting in your way of change. By tapping into your unconscious mind and changing how you view yourself and your problem, hypnotherapy can help you end that cycle of devastating behavior. 

You Can Stop Scratching That Itch

Giving in to your craving is just like scratching an itch. The more you scratch it, the more it itches.   Reversely, it will go away as you resist that urge to scratch. The same is true about your compulsions and cravings – they will always fade away into nothingness.

Consequently, your unconscious is fueling your addiction, and, with the help of hypnotherapy, your unconscious can start working for your benefit rather than your downfall. 

There is Hope

Hypnotherapy is also a potent enhancement to an addiction treatment program or if you’re battling it on your own. Hypnotherapy helps in many ways, including: 

Hypnotherapy is vastly different from cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). Rather than talking in depth about your problem, your past, how you feel, or your addiction, while you’re in the hypnotic state with hypnotherapy, I use hypnotic suggestion to rewire how you think and view yourself and how you think and view your problem. Additionally, since hypnotherapy is drug-free, there are no side effects to worry about. 


Is Hypnotherapy Effective for Addiction?

Hypnosis as entertainment became popular in the United States in the 1980s. As a result, some health professionals lost faith in treating dependence.

However, the application of hypnosis for dependence is regaining credibility, and there have been many studies over the past several decades showing its effectiveness, including:
