Hypnotherapy for Alcohol Reduction

Does excessive drinking take hold of you?

Do you feel that you want to cut down on your drinking but don’t want to give up alcohol altogether? Do you often find yourself consuming more alcohol than you are really happy with? Does it feel impossible to resist the temptation of 'just one more'?

Excessive drinking takes a hold of you when we get disproportionally focused on the present moment (and extending it) and as a result lose perception of the future and its consequences. All that exists is only now ….and now….and now…. and tomorrow is only thought of when you wake up in the morning!

Increasing alcohol consumption and binge drinking is rarely out of the media. However it seems that the majority of therapies and therapists offer an all-or nothing solution, give up completely or give in to the drink. The good news is if you want to reduce our alcohol intake without the need to give up completely I can offer you a alternative way to help you enjoy a moderate amount of alcohol with confidence and ease. 

You may currently think that you need to stop drinking completely as you don’t trust yourself as a result of your history with alcohol. However, I can assure you that you possess amazing resources inside you that can kick start you into a pain free, uncomplicated moderation journey and it begins right here on this page !

How does hypnotherapy work to reduce alcohol consumption?

With the aid of hypnotherapy, I will teach you how to instill a beneficial positive outlook relating to moderate drinking. It works at the subconscious level within your mind, to ensure that alcohol becomes less and less important in your life and increase your ability to think long term about developing a good relationship with alcohol. My program of hypnotherapy will deal with emotional issues that may be connected with drinking such as boredom, stress or upsetting experiences. My approach allows you to take hold of your choices again, breaking the habit of drinking, reprogramming your sleeping patterns and releasing cravings allowing you to be firmly in control of alcohol again.

With my comprehensive approach you will be able to enjoy moderate drinking and stop drinking before the point of ‘no return’ or where the volume of alcohol has far gone over healthy limits. I can help you to stop binge drinking and moderate your intake by re-setting the mind and your complete attitude to alcohol, the way it affects your moods, your wellbeing, your interpersonal relationships and your life. Moderate social drinking then becomes the new normal and binge drinking, part of the past. I individually tailor all my hypnotherapy programmes to each client and their needs.

Those who have experienced hypnotherapy describe it as incredibly relaxing and rejuvenating on both a physical and psychological level. Even more importantly they gain a brighter outlook on life too regardless of what they come to see me about.

How does my approach work?

My approach is a tailored form of therapy using a multi-faceted approach which includes elements of clinical hypnosis, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and strategic goal setting.

Your first session will be a fact-find where we will discuss your current situation, history regarding your drinking patterns, your goals and motives. This will become the foundation to a bespoke plan to help your moderation goals become a reality.

The process will normally require 3 to 10 sessions depending on your goals and individual circumstances. All sessions will involve a hypnotic induction to induce a trance state, a deepening process to access and communicate with the unconscious mind, specific suggestions linked to your unique circumstances to enable change and an awakening to take you out of trance.

I look forward to speaking with you soon and helping you on your journey to a new you!
