Over the last 12 years we have helped hundreds of clients successfully overcome a wide range of physical and behavioural dependencies and addictions involving cocaine, alcohol, marijuana, sex, gambling and more.
Most of our clients have managed to live a relatively ‘normal’ life in spite of their dependancy or addiction. But by contacting us, either they have finally accepted that something has to change.
They have usually come to understand that their self limiting behaviour is now threatening the relationships they share with the most important people in their lives or, their ability to function within their careers or, their general physical and emotional health.
We use a combination of neuro linguistic programming, the principles of cognitive behavioural therapy and advanced clinical hypnotherapy together with some genuine wisdom and common sense so that substance or behaviour that seemed to have so much control over you, easily and comfortably becomes a thing of the past.
Our philosophy is simple – by treating the true cause of your addiction or dependency, whilst rebuilding your emotional strength and developing new healthier life strategies, we can help you feel 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 learnt to do as a means to numb specific emotions or to put it another way, to try and feel somehow better in life (not that you actually do!).
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.
These needs include:
– feeling accepted for who we are and not who we think we should be
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 experience – and we can help you change now.
For most clients we would look to see them between two and five times – appointments last up to 2 hours with costs ranging from £185 – £300 per session depending on the therapist you are working with.
