Conquer An Addiction Or Dependency


Using a combination of advanced clinical hypnotherapy, neuro linguistic programming, the principles of cognitive behavioural therapy, over the years we’ve helped hundreds of clients successfully overcome a wide range of physical and behavioural addictions, including cocaine, marijuana, alcohol, sex and gambling.

Our philosophy is simple - by treating the true cause of an addiction or dependency, whilst rebuilding your emotional strength, we can help you to stop with a genuine sense of freedom, liberation and control.

The reason our approach works is because we understand that your “addiction" is not part of you and you certainly were not born with it. It’s simply something that you have learned to do as a means to cope or to feel somehow better in life (not that you actually do!). 

You see an addiction or dependency is defined as a behaviour or activity that is pursued to excess, changes our mood rapidly and generates both pleasure and pain.

Addictions manifest when we fail to meet our own emotional needs directly - an addiction perverts our intention to find natural strategies to meet our needs and acts as a surrogate - it becomes the go to strategy to feel some pleasure.

And even though it is a psychological and physiological fact that the more we do something, the less pleasure we get from it, we continue to associate the original pleasure to the behaviour rather than the current reality, which is usually very (very) different.

Indeed, most of our clients have come to understand that by continuing to do more of what they've been doing, all they are going to get is more of what they've already got, which is usually ill health, ill wealth, life inbalance, a disconnection with the people they love most or, major issues with their careers. 

But it doesn't have to be this way. We can help you to deal with the underlying cause of your addiction, change the way your mind associates to your old unwanted dependency or behaviour and, help you to feel a new and exciting level of self-confidence, self-worth and self-esteem so you start living the life you desire and the life you deserve. 

Ultimately we can help you feel free and liberated from that old unwanted addiction or dependency. 

The reason why we’re successful at helping clients' beat their addictions is because we work across both the conscious and unconscious parts of the mind.

Through Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapy and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), we work with a clients unconscious mind, or more specifically their belief system, memory and imagination.

Through the principles of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy we also work at a rational and logical level and the combination of the two can be very powerful indeed.

Add a little wisdom and that most scarce of resources within the therapeutic environment - common sense - and we can help you ensure that all that old relationship with food that had so much control over you, comfortably becomes a thing of the past.

For most clients we would look to see them between two and four times - appointments last 2 hours with costs ranging from £185 - £300 per session depending on the therapist they are working with.
