Managing Bad Habits and Hypnotherapy

Gavin Blackman

What Is A Habit?

Having habits can sometimes be a good thing. When you drive to work for example, you don’t need to wonder whether you should turn left or right; the route becomes habit. But sometimes habits can lead people astray, for example, turning to comfort food when we are sad or taking a cigarette break when we are stressed.

Why Do People Have Bad Habits?

Most of the time bad habits are a way for people to deal with stress and boredom. Everything from biting your nails to overspending on a shopping spree to drinking every weekend to wasting time on the internet, can be simple responses to stress and boredom.

So How Can People Break Their Bad Habits?

However, it doesn’t have to be that way!!  Since habits take practice and repetition to form, the same is true when it comes to breaking them. Working with me you can teach yourself new and healthy ways to deal with stress and boredom which you can then substitute in place of your bad habits.

Of course, sometimes the stress and boredom that is on the surface, is actually caused by deeper issues. These issues can be tough to think about; however if you are serious about making changes then you need to be honest with yourself. Are there certain beliefs or reasons that are behind the bad habits? Is there something deeper – a fear, an event or a limiting belief – that is causing you to hold onto something that is not good for you?

So How Can Hypnotherapy Help?

I will work with you to first understand what exactly what your habit is, how it manifests itself and how and why the habit started. I will  then agree with you what positive outcome(s) you want  from working with me using hypnotherapy and what good habits you want to replace the bad habits.

I can then explain the relevant techniques that will suit you best and we can agree on the way forward ie to agree:

  • The number of sessions you may need or we can just proceed one session at a time – it is entirely up to you
  • Whether or not some self-hypnosis between sessions and/or after the sessions have ended would be beneficial for you
  • Whether or not some additional work between sessions that you can do yourself would help your progress in dealing with your issue(s)

Rest assured that by collaborating and working together, we can achieve the positive changes you are looking for.

What Next?

Having habits can sometimes be a good thing. When you drive to work for example, you don’t need to wonder whether you should turn left or right; the route becomes habit. But sometimes habits can lead people astray, for example, turning to comfort food when we are sad or taking a cigarette break when we are stressed.

If you have any habits you want to break, please contact me for a FREE initial discussion so you get a better understanding of how Hypnotherapy can help you. I am based in Winchester; however, Hypnotherapy works just as effectively on-line as well as in person.
