To those who are ignorant to this disease, treatment may seem like a simple case of cutting up the credit card, however psychological symptoms are similar to those of alcoholism, eating disorders, drug abuse and gambling, resulting in emotional, social, occupational, and financial consequences.Similar to other compulsive behaviours, sufferers often experience the highs and lows associated with addiction and often the habit starts as a result of low self-esteem, with sufferers thinking that their next purchase will fill a void in their life.
Hypnotherapy is such a versatile treatment and this is just another instance where it can be used. We already know that it is particularly good for building up self-esteem as access to your subconscious will mean negative thoughts, feelings, habits and mood patterns can be adapted and erased. This has been a success in areas of motivation, depression, stress, chronic pain, jaw clenching (TMJ) and a variety of compulsive behaviours. In particular, with respect to compulsive behaviour, hypnosis can give rapid and even immediate relief. We also know that it can break habits, of course this is one of the reasons it is such a success for treating smoking and weight loss, as the subconscious is retrained to react in a different way when we feel like we are about to slip.
