Are you seeking help with alcohol dependence or addiction?
My own sobriety. I believe it’s important to my clients to know that I am clean and sober myself. Although finding a hypnotherapist who “walks the talk” may not have been a priority for you, it may prove significant. Think about it, how many professionals give advice to others on “safe drinking limits”, “how to control your drinking” or reasons to “stop or reduce alcohol consumption” and then go home and crack open the vino every night?
Often people appreciate seeing a therapist like me who not only has all the right qualifications, knowledge and extensive professional experience, but also benefits from personal empathy. No two individuals’ lives and experiences are the same. My journey is not the same as yours. But the very fact I’ve had my own, means I’m able to truly understand your struggle in ways others simply can’t.
Is This You?
Do you drink to take the edge off the stress of your present?
Or to forget some aspect of your past?
Or to avoid thinking about the future?
Many people use alcohol to self-medicate. Perhaps without realising it you may drink in an attempt to alleviate feelings of anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, stress or relationship problems.
Many people function so well on the outside that only those closest know the extent of their drinking. Often ordinary people find themselves drinking more, or more frequently than they want to. Then quite quickly the temporary solution it promised, becomes a problem in itself.
Not only is alcohol social accepted, consumption is actively encouraged! In fact, people who chose not to use that particular drug can be regarded as odd! Booze is the only drug that when you are free of the addiction you can be seen as having a problem!
Of course, not everyone who drinks is addicted. Many people can drink “socially” or “normally”. In my experience, however, these days more and more people are becoming aware of the potential for their drinking become a problem and so choose to take back control.
I am not saying that alcohol is inherently bad. However, because of the fact that it is legal; to buy, to sell and to consume, providing you are over 18 years of age, we overlook the fact that it is a highly addictive, mind altering psychoactive substance.
