Hypnotherapy is an approach that many people find to be incredibly effective, especially when combined with other forms of treatment.

The thing with addiction is that, often, there are a number of underlying issues that have led to the problem. Whether it be a traumatic event, a past experience or a number of stressors, if you have turned to alcohol or another substance as a way of self-medicating, the issue hasn’t been dealt with. Somewhere deep down, the effects are still there, quietly fueling your addiction.

Hypnotherapy looks to change the way you think and behave in certain situations. Hypnosis for drinking aims to access your unconscious (the part of your mind that runs without you knowing), and using suggestion techniques, help you change the negative thoughts and behaviours associated with the addiction.

The hypnotherapist will encourage you to enter a state of deep relaxation. It is in this trance-like state that it’s believed that your unconscious is more open to suggestion.

Using suggestion techniques, the hypnotherapist will look to change the way you react to certain things. In hypnotherapy for alcohol addiction, for example, the suggestions would be tailored to your triggers, changing the way you react and help you not crave alcohol.

Suggestions may include not needing to drink anymore, or associating alcohol with an unpleasant taste or smell.

Alcohol is a big part of society – we drink to celebrate successes, to wish congratulations and even commiserations. While in moderation, drinking isn’t considered a serious issue, when it becomes excessive, concerns arise. If an individual is turning to drink as a coping mechanism – as a way to deal with life’s stressors – then it is considered a problem.

Alcohol dependency (also known as alcoholism or alcohol addiction) is the uncontrollable desire for alcohol. Like any other addiction, alcohol dependence is incredibly hard to break. It can harm the mind, body and social life of the individual. It can affect the people around them too, as they watch their loved one fade away.

Problem drinking isn’t always so easy to identify. The individuals themselves may not know when alcohol went from being one part of their social life to controlling their whole life.

Through the support of loved ones and professionals, and treatment options such as counseling and hypnotherapy, you can overcome the addiction.

Signs of a drinking problem

Like many other drugs, alcohol can be both physically and psychologically addictive. If you’re worried about your own drinking habits, or someone else’s, there are some signs to look out for.

  • Worrying about when your next drink will be and planning social, family and work events around alcohol.
  • You no longer feel you have the ability to stop drinking, even if you want to.
  • Drinking early in the day, or feeling the need to drink in the morning.
  • Feeling the need to drink when under pressure or during stressful situations.
  • When you don’t drink, you experience physical withdrawal symptoms such as sweating, shaking and nausea, and these stop when you do drink.

If you recognize any of the above signs in yourself or are worried about a friend, know that there is help available. If you’re worried about your own drinking, but don’t feel comfortable speaking to friends, you can talk to your GP or a professional – like a counselor.

There are also support groups, such as Alcoholics Anonymous, where you can seek support from those who know what you’re going through.

If you’re worried about a friend, approaching the subject may be difficult, but letting them know you are concerned and are there if they need you, can help. It’s important you speak to them calmly and without judgment. Express your concern without being accusatory and support them through the journey.

Imagine what it would be like to:

  • Wake every morning feeling refreshed and full of life!
  • Manage stress and anxiety without turning to alcohol!
  • Attend a party or social event and avoid drinking alcohol!
