I have specialist training in Addictions & have worked with many addictions including, Cigarettes, Sugar, Cannabis, Alcohol, Cocaine, Gambling, Eating Disorders – the route causes & treatment of all addictions have parallels so please do contact me if your addiction is not on this list – it’s very likely I can help.
I will do my best to find you someone who has direct experience of your issue.
Addictions have both a physical & emotional root – a physical dependency, emotions about having the addiction such as guilt, regret, anxiety & then the root emotional cause that brought you to the addiction in the first place.
We work from the first session at bringing a stop to the addictive behaviour – to stop you “doing” your addiction.
Alcohol issues tend to fall into three categories:
– Problem drinking
– Alcohol dependency
For problem drinking & alcohol dependency we may decide that you would like to control your alcohol intake – typically this would be 1-2 units once a week to be reviewed after 3 months.
We are dealing with extreme dependency or alcoholism.
And we may agree that you would like to stop drinking alcohol altogether.
Once we have stopped the behaviour, we look to the root cause of the need to self medicate.
When we have unresolved emotional issues we often turn to chemicals to change our mood & escape the anxiety eg alcohol, cigarettes, sugar, adrenaline.
Using Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) we resolve these emotional issues, the emotions that you were medicating are absent & therefore the need to use dissolved. In addition, we resolve any feelings that have been created by the effects that your addiction has had on your life & relationships.
Typically Alcohol dependency will usually clear in 3-6 sessions.
