More about addiction

What is addiction

An addiction is something that you can’t control or have become obsessive about.

Many things can become addictive including drugs, alcohol, the internet, food, sex etc. to the extent that the addiction takes priority over family and work.

The addicted person can find himself or herself lying to their friends, family and work colleagues in an attempt to hide the addiction.

How do you recognise an addiction

An addiction can be something that you start that becomes a habit very quickly and you can soon become obsessive about it. It becomes the focus of your whole life until you are unable to control it completely.

You can recognise an addiction, if you find that work or relationships are suffering, you are becoming irritable and less caring towards the people that really matter to you, you find your health is suffering and it may affect any hobbies that you enjoyed previously.

You find that your addiction is the most important thing in your life and you find whatever you are addicted to - you are doing more regularly, just to be able to achieve what you perceive as a buzz to give you the high that you are looking for.

Causes of addiction

Addictions can also be caused by a number of other circumstances such as behavioural factors or chemical factors.

Genetics can be a factor and evidence supports that if there is a family history of an addiction you are more likely to have an addiction also.

Background childhood issues such as abuse or neglect can be a key factor for an addicted person.

Mental health experts believe that a person suffering from anxiety or nervousness and people unable to cope with everyday life are more vulnerable to an addiction.

3. Follow up

If follow up sessions are needed, we'll discuss your progress so far and then continue with the appropriate therapy.

What treatment options are available?

Hypnotherapy

With the help of hypnotherapy, you can be helped to improve your life and achieve your goals. Feel much better about yourself and become more relaxed and confident.

Psychotherapy

There are many types of psychotherapy that are helpful. The main ones that I use are CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and Solution Focussed therapy.

Talk Therapy

Sometimes, you may feel that you want to talk about something that feels hard to discuss with friends or family, so going to see a therapist for Talk Therapy can be very helpful.
