If you have an addiction, you are not alone. Addiction can be defined as not having control over doing, taking or using something to the point where it could be harmful.
It is a psychological and physical inability to stop engaging in an action even though it is causing the individual or others psychological or physical harm. This is due to the reward system in the brain providing a gripping incentive to repeatedly pursue the addictive behaviour.
It is possible to be addicted or obsess over just about anything including; alcohol, drugs, gambling, work, sex and shopping, nail biting or bed-wetting.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can be beneficial for breaking addictions and obsessions.
SFH focuses on the subconscious mind and its processes that creates and stores habits.
The main reason for the success of hypnosis for addictions and obsessions is the individual having a strong desire to give up and wanting to make the necessary life changes.
During trance positive suggestions help the individual to focus on strategies to overcome their addictive behaviour.
