Lack of self-control and self-restraint that has led to a problematic behavior with:

  • Alcohol
  • Drugs
  • Internet and social media
  • Cigarette smoking
  • Caffeine
  • Spending
  • Food addiction
  • Gambling problems
  • And many more

Everyone develops patterns, in fact our personality is nothing but a collection of patterned responses developed over a lifetime. We cannot learn and develop as human beings without the ability to remember what we are taught. This can only happen if what we are learning is used over and over again. Repetition is critical to learning. A child learns their ABC’s by reciting them repetitively and before you know it, it has become second nature and automatic for the child to recall the letters and their order. Everything we do is a result of a developed pattern of behavior. Behavior patterns are necessary and natural!   We develop good and bad habits. Bad habits or problematic behaviors are usually easy to alter with a little effort once we are consciously aware we do them.

Addictions however are another story. The pattern and habit is reinforced by a powerful stimulus within our mind and body that provides an immediate pleasure or positive feeling, even though the overall result is destructive to our health and or quality of life. Addictive habits involve a conscious decision to pursue the addictive focus. Addictive behaviors are complicated because they often involve behavioral issues tied to negative childhood and young adult experiences, chemical issues due to hormonal imbalances stimulated by the substance consumed, and some appear to be genetically influenced. Clearly some addictions are tougher to overcome than others, and all addictions require a multi-prong attack to achieve recovery.

Addictions and Problematic behaviors are not necessarily one in the same.  You may be using the internet and realizing it has gotten a hold of your life and you desire to stop it before it becomes a serious problem. Or you might be in social settings so frequently because of your work that your alcohol consumption is creeping up and you want to stop it.  These are problematic behaviors, however, they can quickly turn into true addictions, which often require support programs and therapy, of which hypnosis can be adjunct tool for recovery.

Hypnosis can be a powerful tool in overcoming problematic behaviors. It can assist the individual in overcoming low self-esteem issues that are typically the root cause of the behavioral influencers. And, it can also help the mind manage the cravings stimulated by the problematic behavior through guided subconscious suggestions that can re-route the minds reaction to the stimulus.  

Hypnosis can be a powerful tool for problematic behaviors and used in conjunction with appropriate counseling and supportive guidance in the transformation process of addictions.
