"Hi Chris, it's Joe from Plymouth.
I'm two weeks clean of roulette and all urges and thoughts on it are completely gone. I feel able to protect myself from it and I no longer feel a slave to it. This time I will not test it!
Thank you, Joe."
Most people think that gambling is an addiction, and notoriously difficult to stop with willpower alone. A lot of the 'help' available for gamblers is just advice or counselling, or a twelve step programme like Gamblers Anonymous that takes up a lot of their time and encourages them to see themselves as flawed or weak, insisting that they will always be "a gambler, whether they gamble or not"!
Not so. Joe has had hypnotherapy for gambling before, and was so amazed by how easy it was that he couldn't resist testing it by gambling again, which just started the habit up once more. A habit is just a learned behaviour, and resisting it with willpower does not shut it down. Only hypnotherapy can do that, and then you don't need willpower to resist it because it becomes dormant. But you do have to remember not to voluntarily try gambling again! The one thing hypnotherapy cannot do is to prevent you from doing something if you freely choose to do it again anyway... but we can shut it down again anyway so it's not the end of the world if there's a relapse. more about this
Hypnosis is the only way to get detailed messages to the Subconscious mind - something only an expert hypnotherapist can do, but it's much quicker and easier than any other help available, and it doesn't cost much either if you come to Central Hypnotherapy in Stockport. Joe came all the way from Plymouth, which is not as unusual as you might think. People come here from all over the U.K. and occasionally from other countries too!
