Help to Stop Gambling Now

Posted: Monday, June 27, 2011

If you want to quit gambling, all you need to do is call Central Hypnotherapy, book a hypnotherapy session and actually turn up for it! You can leave the rest to me.

Gambling is not an addiction

How does it work? Well, contrary to popular belief gambling is not an addiction: it just looks like one. In truth it is a Compulsive Habit controlled by the Subconscious mind.  It is the 'compulsive' bit that causes the trouble. Gamblers feel literally compelled to repeat the behaviour, and the part of the brain which controls that never analyses the results to see if it went well, so it appears to 'never learn'. What confuses the gambler is that their conscious mind DOES analyse the results, and keeps making decisions/resolutions/promises to stop, but the Subconscious doesn't know about that so it continues prompting the behaviour with powerful impulses which the conscious mind is not often able to resist.

How does hypnotherapy help?

Hypnosis is simply a method of communication which includes the Subconscious mind. Ordinary conversation does not, which is why the 12 Step Programme approach (Gamblers Anonymous) takes forever and often fails. In contrast I can shut down a compulsive habit like gambling in a single session: it takes about two hours altogether. It is 100% safe, rapid and effective because it shuts down the compulsive urges to gamble and adjusts feelings, so you no longer 'feel like' gambling. I can also do a great deal to prevent relapse at the same time.  Even if a relapse does occur, it can be fixed easily enough with another session.

If you feel that gambling has cost you too much already and you have had enough of making other people rich and yourself miserable - call me (Chris) at Central Hypnotherapy on 0161-474 8120 or call/text 07748 838 644 (any time, including evenings & weekends) for more info or to book an appointment.
