Donna Thomson, Specialist in Anxiety and Alcohol Addiction
Hi, I’m Donna and I am a Cognitive Hypnotherapist.
My training and extensive experience means that I can help people overcome a range of issues but my special interest is in working with people who want to live a life without overwhelming anxiety and alcohol addiction.
For years I believed that I didn’t have anxiety, that I didn’t ‘do’ anxiety. The truth is that I absolutely did. I hid it, pushed it away and obliterated it with alcohol. Basically, numbing all those feelings and emotions that I didn’t want to feel and drowning out the noisy, critical self-talk with it.
When I began to dig deep and gather together all the pains that I was running away from and self-medicating with alcohol l began to gain clarity on why those pains were there and what they were protecting me from. I began to grow as a person. My self-esteem grew, my confidence developed and my anxiety levels lessened. I no longer need or want alcohol in my life.
If any of my story resonates with you, you can turn it around, you don’t have to stay stuck in the endless cycle of anxiety = alcohol = anxiety = even more alcohol = even more anxiety…
Finding the right therapist for you is an important part of your journey to a positive outcome. So, when you’re ready to explore what Cognitive Hypnotherapy can do for you give me a call. It’s a complimentary, no obligation, 30 to 40 minutes chat and you may well discover what is at the root of your anxiety and or of alcohol addiction and what to do about it to break free for good.
Whether you want to stop smoking, lose weight, rid yourself of a fear or phobia, increase your confidence and self esteem, pass exams or need help overcoming addictions, behaviors or limiting beliefs.... I can help.
