Managing Alcohol with Hypnotherapy

The beginning of a new year is a good time to reflect on some of our habits, especially the bad ones that tend to take a heavy toll on our lives. Alcohol exists as a vice, which we can quickly turn to when celebrating, relaxing, or trying to manage our problems. As a result, many people can become dependent on this liquid crutch, without even realising the unintended negative effects it can really have on us.

From a glass of wine at dinner to a flute of champagne at a wedding, Alcohol – like most things – is there to be enjoyed in moderation. However, when one factors in the everyday stresses, mental health challenges, and emotional pressures that we’re faced with, Alcohol can become a dangerously accessible counterbalance, leading to many people developing an unhealthy habit – drinking too much of it.

Alcohol Addiction vs Abuse

In today’s world, we’re all acutely aware of the dangers of Alcohol addiction. A powerful narcotic, Alcohol is easy to obtain, legal and relatively affordable. Unchecked, a reckless drinking habit can quickly become a full-blown addiction. Alcoholics face a difficult journey to recovery, with years of treatment ahead of them, and a need to be constantly vigilant beyond recovery. So endemic is the problem of Alcohol addiction that there are massive support structures in place. From state-sponsored programs to private facilities, for decades Alcoholics have turned to these programs for help.

But what about the rest of those who drink? The overwhelming majority of Alcohol consumers will never become Alcoholics, however, with increasing levels of consumption among Australians, those facing habits of excess will fall into the “Abuse” category. Essentially this relates to people who drink more than they should, but not enough to be classified as addicted. Often, this behaviour can lead to more severe problems, and eventually addiction itself.

Cause and Effect

Besides the well-documented liver and issues associated with long-term Alcohol Abuse, there are a myriad of other problems linked to drinking excessively. From high blood pressure to heart disease, Alcohol can take a heavy toll on the physical body. However, often the worst damage is done to the mind itself.

Alcohol dependency can cause depression, compromise mental health and create behavioural problems. Ironically, those already dealing with these challenges often turn to Alcohol to deal with them. This results in a never-ending loop of cause (stress and mental health concerns) and effect (Abuse).

Taking it Easy

Have you ever tried to go without a drink for an extended period only to find that abstaining is a little more difficult than you thought? For people who Abuse Alcohol, but aren’t addicted, the help available to them is vague at best. So, where do we turn for a helping hand when we choose to cut back on our Alcohol intake? Quitting drinking entirely is a choice of last resort, and reducing your intake is often a viable option.

While many programs address behaviours within an Alcohol-fuelled environment, Hypnotherapy can be a unique alternative in that it looks to treat the underlying causes of Abuse, focusing on the emotional and mental elements that trigger the desire to imbibe. Since most clients are merely looking to scale back on their intake, instead of quitting Alcohol entirely, Hypnotherapy is an ideal option for those looking to manage their habits and take control of their cravings.

Hypnocare can Help in Cutting Back

Hypnocare Hypnotherapy Clinic is geared around offering treatments which encourage and assist clients in taking control of how often, and how much they drink. Therapists work to help clients find ways to condition their habits, triggers and behaviours that lead to binge drinking and overconsumption. Through making use of deep relaxation techniques and positive reprogramming, these habits and behaviours can be changed or broken. Beyond facing the challenges which lead to Alcohol Abuse, Hypnotherapy also allows clients to explore the underlying issues at hand, creating a space that fosters wellness and positivity in their lives.

Hypnotherapy for reducing Alcohol consumption can be a sustainable treatment that bridges the treatment gap between Abuse and addiction – allowing clients to manage their lifestyle trends and focus on general wellness. Cutting back on how much we drink can be more challenging than we’d like to admit. So give it a shot you might be surprised at the results.

Here's what our clients have to say

Have been seeing linda for a few months now and has changed my life for the better greatly! I was sceptical at first but Linda made me feel so comfortable and she really is great at what she does My issue was with alcohol and no longer is an issue for me. Thanks again Linda

I was a habitual worrier. If all was ok my mind would search for the next problem. I came out of my second session with Linda and this had disappeared. I felt light. I had a realisation that whatever my situation, I had a choice. It was highly liberating and has persevered. I ended up studying hypnosis and have a new respect for what Linda helped me achieve. She's genuine and down to earth. Thanks Linda

Linda is a very experienced practitioner in the field. I feel very lucky to have had support from such a seasoned professional. Thank you for all you have done to help me progress Linda. It is much appreciated.

It’s been 8 weeks smoke free and the idea of picking up a cigarette is so unappealing I now sometimes wonder how I was ever a smoker. My skin is better, I'm not carrying around guilt every day, I don't stink, I'm not as anxious, basically I'm so happy it's all behind me and count my lucky stars I don't have to live that smoker life anymore. I think I was really ready to quit this time, and can't thank Linda enough for helping me make that happen. I didn't know if I had the strength to quit for good, but the session we did reminded me just how strong I am. Thank you millions and millions Linda, that one afternoon in your chair has changed my life and helped me kick a habit I've struggled with for over 10 years. Thank you so very much 🙏🙏

In 2008 I visited Linda in her Subiaco clinic to treat a psychological tick involving constant jaw clenching/clicking (probably around 200 times per day - for years). After just 1 session it stopped dead immediately - 100%. It has now remained a forgotten habit for 9 years... had I not gone to her, I would have probably developed an arthritic jaw by now!

Wow! There are no words that can really express my transformation after a few sessions with Linda. When I initially came to see Linda, I was suffering from anxiety and depression from a number of traumatic experiences I had been through in recent years. My anxiety and depression had started impacting my work, relationships and health. I averaged 2 HRS of sleep a night and sat on my couch every painfully stricken day, debilitated by everything that was going on. After my first session, I drove out of Linda’s office feeling light as a feather; I slept like a baby that night and signed up to a gym. By my 3rd session, I was comfortable with speaking to a group of people, I was sleeping regularly and had a huge motivation to go to the gym six days a week. Not only is my life on track, I am following my dreams. Things that I promised myself I would do one day, I am already doing. What stood out for me, was that Linda’s work taught my inner being to help myself, rather than rely on other people to help me find my way. Linda’s work not only instantaneously helped me, the effects of Linda’s work has unfolded over the last 3 months. Thank you Linda. You are truly a blessing.
