Hypnosis for drink and drugs

Posted: Tuesday, August 2, 2022

"Hi Chris, been singing your praises for hours, I hope your ears not burning too much.  Also passed your number to everyone I know so apologies in advance for the cranks you're about to meet!"  B.W.  24/07/22


Not at all!  The more the merrier!  Let's fix everyone's problems, make the world a better place!

Most of my clients are direct referrals from previous clients.  Twenty-two years ago, when I launched Central Hypnotherapy I had to spend a lot of money on advertising, but every year that went by, it became less and less, and for years now I've hardly advertised at all: my clients do it for me.  And do you know what the main reason for that is? 

They didn't expect it to work.

No-one does - unless they are already very familiar with the hypnotherapy process.  Because it sounds too good to be true, doesn't it?

Take drugs and alcohol for example: how many people know that hypnotherapy can shut down a cocaine or booze habit in just one session? A very, very small percentage of the population, in truth.  The rest all think you have to spend weeks at The Priory or in rehab, then mayne attend a 12-step-programme like Alcoholics Anonymous for the rest of your life.  And even that is quite likely to fail, because it's the wrong approach: what we call "doing it the hard way".

All habits and addictions are under Subconscious control.  Only hypnotherapists work with the Subconscious mind.  Narcotics Anonymous don't.  They don't in rehab, or at The Priory.  Counsellors don't, they only talk to the conscious mind. 

Well if the conscious mind could fix the problem, you wouldn't need any of these people, you could just do it yourself!

Now of course, some people do.  Not everybody needs my help.  Noel Gallagher once made me laugh, when asked on TV about how he got over his considerable cocaine habit:

"Did you go to rehab?"

"REHAB??  That's for them Southern jessies!  Just STOP DOING IT!"

Ah - often easier said than done though, Noel!  Maybe... if you really wanna know... I mean, if you're a millionaire rock star and you can just take a couple of months off work and reinvent yourself at leisure... but most of us don't have that luxury, do we?

So if you are thoroughly sick of an old, toxic habit and you just want it to go away, don't worry if you don't really believe in hypnotherapy or expect it to work - that's NORMAL!   Just give Chris a ring and leave it all to him!  0161 474 8120 (Office Hours), or call/text any time, any day on 07748 838 644.   more about this
