Hypnosis & Hypnotherapy for Alcohol Issues
What is hypnotherapy?
It is the use of hypnosis in a bid to change a person’s response to everyday stimuli. The technique focuses on getting into the subconscious mind so that the person under hypnosis can alter ingrained thoughts, reactions, and behaviors. Some thoughts, responses, behaviors can be because of a trauma that might have occurred in someone’s life or might have been developed over time through unhealthy habits. Despite how these habits developed, hypnosis seeks to change your responses to these habits.
For instance, a person dealing with alcoholism might have developed this because of a stressful thing they were going through years back. Now years later they may find it hard to trace the cause back to these events even using traditional therapy methods. If you do not establish the cause, it might be hard to move past your addiction or overcome it fully.
Hypnotherapy offers direct patient access to memories during the trance state. Patients are then suited better to address the cause of their alcohol problems.
Hypnotherapy and alcohol abuse
Therapists use Hypnosis to treat alcohol problems in different ways and different goals in mind. In some cases, they use hypnosis to help newly sober people find peace and calmness in life, other times they use it to explore repressed memories that might have caused the alcohol problems.
Most times, people suited for this type of therapy will find it hard to stop drinking. They might have attempted to quit a few times in the past without success, and hypnotherapy can give them the results they desire.
Through hypnosis, the therapist and the patient will access repressed thoughts, memories, and feelings while playing an integral part in the current psychological setup of the patient. The therapist and patient can get the full picture during the therapy session making it easier to address the alcohol problem.
Within a few sessions, the therapist can establish a relationship between current behaviors and the past events. Because of this, the patient can understand what led them to their current alcohol problems and adopt a sober life.
In conclusion, becoming sober and clean from alcohol and other drugs is the most important thing an alcoholic or addict can do in life. Our hypnotherapists will help you find a new life free of alcohol problems. Call us today for more.

As such, a safe procedure is free of surgery and medication.
