Hypnosis Treatment Gambling Addiction
Effective Method Of Treatment For Many People
Hypnosis treatment gambling addiction is an effective method of treatment for many people. The use of hypnosis and relaxation techniques in hypnotherapy helps a client access their deepest unconscious parts hence identify the triggers that made them an addict.
Problem gambling sometimes referred to as gambling addiction, is the urge to gamble continuously even when affected by negative consequences or have a desire to stop. Gambling can affect your social life and relationships as well as compromise your mental health.
Problem gambling can also have a severe effect on your finances. However, you can end this problem because help is available. There are a number of things that when done, you will get your better life back.

• Inability to manage /stop gambling;
• Gambling more than you can afford, in terms of time and money;
• Money and gambling become key reasons to arguments with loved ones;
• Your thoughts revolve around gambling;
• Lying to others about your gambling;
• No longer interested in activities that you used to enjoy;
• Spending all your money on gambling;
• Gambling to get yourself out of financial trouble;
• Gambling with borrowed money, skipped bills money or money from sold belongings;
• Gambling large amounts of money to get the sweet feeling of excitement and relief;
• Prioritising gambling other than your work, family, school or personal needs; and
• Feeling guilty, worried, anxious or irritable.
Hypnotherapy for gambling aims to identify causes and behaviour associated with the addiction by accessing your unconscious. Through the power of suggestion, hypnotherapy works to interfere with your thinking and reaction to certain situations such as viewing gambling as a stress reliever.
You must want to make a change for hypnotherapy to work. The change should be for yourself because doing it for someone else won’t have the same effect. Although some thoughts and behaviours can be altered through hypnosis, wanting to address the problem will make the treatment more effective.
Away from addiction focus, hypnotherapy for addiction aims to alter the negative patterns and behaviours associated with the problem.
During a session, your hypnotherapist will begin by asking you to think of a situation or experience that you believe may have triggered your addiction. You may also be asked to tell when and why you began gambling, and when you think it became a problem.
A hypnotherapist will use different methods of treatment depending on the individual, their past experiences, their problem and their triggers. For instance, if your problem is as a result of past experiences, hypnosis will help you alter your thoughts and behaviours and also cope with it towards your recovery.
Duration of Treatment
The duration of treatment depends on an individual. You can discuss with your hypnotherapist of what you want to gain at the end of your sessions and the time that you think will be suitable.
You can increase your sessions if you and your hypnotherapist believe that the time you had was not enough. If self-hypnosis techniques are taught, then you can practice them at home to help you cope with potential triggers even after your sessions finish.
