Alcohol Reduction Hypnotherapy

If you want to reduce your alcohol intake to a healthier level then hypnotherapy can often give you this control in just a few sessions. It is the ideal tool for reducing drinking which has crept up as a result of habit, stress or social pressure.

Hypnotherapy is very good for dealing with any emotional link to alcohol. It can reduce your desire for drink and remove any cravings.

I will not dwell on the health risks of regularly drinking more than the "lower risk limits" of 3 - 4 units a day for men and 2 - 3 for women. The fact that you are reading this probably indicates you are trying to do something about it already. If you want to see them spelt out look at

Alcohol drinking can easily get out of control because it is so readily available and is such a normal part of socialising. Reaching for a drink to unwind after a long day can so easily become part of the daily routine.

Particular events in your life can also trigger increased drinking such as bereavement, relationship issues, or being made redundant.

There is, of course, a complete range of alcohol consumption between total abstinence and alcoholism. Many people are a long way from being alcoholics, but nevertheless regularly exceed lower risk limits by a certain amount and are therefore risking their health. They may wish to reduce their intake to within lower limits without giving it up completely.

Others wish to curb the damaging effects of sudden peaks in alcohol consumption associated with binge drinking.

At higher levels danger signals can include:

If you think you are close to being addicted, have a look at my addictions page
•  Drinking on your own
•  Feeling the need for alcohol
•  Noticing an effect on your work
•  Believing a few drinks a week is unrealistic
•  Someone else is concerned about your drinking
•  Your relationship with others is starting to be affected

Getting Back in Control

The hypnotherapy will be tailored to you individually by establishing what the current level of your alcohol intake is, whether you wish to just lower the level or give up completely and what the main drinking drivers are for you personally.

If your drinking is mainly habitual, then hypnotherapy will be used to remove the subconscious triggers which are driving the habit.

If it is stress related then drinking will be replaced with better coping strategies.

If it is social then hypnotherapy will be used to build your confidence and self esteem so that you feel comfortable enjoying the company of friends drinking alcohol without drinking alcohol yourself.
