Testimonial

I have emphysema and needed a life saving operation; my doctor told me they will not put me on the waiting list until I have stopped smoking for six months. I tried everything but could not manage to stop on my own. The Peterborough Hypnotherapy Clinic was great and made me face up to the facts. I stopped smoking on my first visit. I have been back to see my doctor and he has agreed to put me on the waiting list.

I tried all types of diets but could not manage to lose the weight I needed to lose. The Complete Hypnotic System helped me, I dropped two dress sizes in three weeks.

I had already failed my test  three times I just became, to nervous each test I seemed to get worse. My driving instructor suggested hypnosis well I passed my Test and it definitely worked for me.

Mandy

I started the Complete Hypnotic Slimming System in January I lost 7lb in one week. This truly is an amazing way to lose weight. I haven't even started the Hypnotic Gastric Band yet.

My 16 year old son had a phobia of balloons he seemed to have a fear of them popping he also had a fear of other loud noises such as fireworks. I am pleased to say that some months on the results are working well. He has been very relaxed around balloons and when one went of behind him at a party he just looked up and commented the treatment worked. I also appreciate being able to sit in on the Hypnotherapy session.

I smoked over 30 cigarettes a day I also smoked cannabis, it was costing me over £400 a month a friend of my girl friend had stopped smoking at the Peterborough Hypnotherapy Clinic a few months earlier. My girlfriend booked me in. Its been two months now and I don't even feel like smoking. I have already saved over £800.

Steve

The thought of taking my Driving Test made me feel sick I could do all the driving and manoeuvres on my lessons but as soon as the test came round I felt as though I had only just started to drive I forgot everything. The Peterborough Hypnotherapy Clinic helped me I passed; I am now driving my own car.

Addictions

ADDICTIONS AND HABITS

There are many types of addictions.

An addiction is an obsessive and uncontrollable attachement to an activity, substance, or a behaviour. The more common types of addictions are smoking, drugs, gambling, alcoholism, even internet addiction.

An addiction is more powerful than a habit, and can become more dangerous than a habit. 

Habits

  • Are not particulary damaging.
  • They are something we do on a regular basis it becomes repetative and second nature.
  • It becomes an automatic response.
Habits can become a natural part of our life and can include things we do on a regular basis like crossing our legs when sitting or brushing our teeth.
Habits can become bad habits, such as sucking your thumb or biting your nails, although these bad habits can be broken as they are usually unconscious or passive actions. Once our conscious mind becomes more aware of this habit, then the habit can be stopped.
 
Addictions are conscious and impulsive behaviour patterns that become difficult to control.
 
The Symptoms of a Habit can become an Addiction 
 
  • When they start to distract us from normal life.
  • When they become more difficult to control.
  • When they generate a dependency. 
  • When they start to override our feelings and emotions.
  • When they cause phsysical witdrawal symptoms.
Addictions can be put into two catagories
  1. Chemical
  2. Behaviour
Chemical Addictions
  • Endorphins, which is a type of hormone, can play an important part in the development of an addiction.
  • Dopamine. there are some substances that can trigger the hormone dopamine, This can cause a feeling of pleasure and satisfaction, The addict will then feel the need to seek out this feeling again.

 More Common Addictive Substances 

  • Tobacco  (nicotine)
  • Cannabis
  • Cocaine 
  • Alcohol
  • Inhalenlents (glue, aerosols)
  • Heroin
  • Morphine
  • Caffeine (coffee, energy drinks) 

Behaviour Addictions

  • Personality, People who tend to be more anxious or nerves types seem to be more likely to develope addictive behaviour patterns.
  • Background, People who have troubled pasts, who may have been involved in abuse or neglective issues are more likely to to become addicted later in life.
  • Genetics, People who have close family members such as parents who had become addicted to alchohol had an increased chance of becomming addicted themselves.

More Common Addictive Activities

  • Extreme Sports
  • Constant Exercise
  • Eating
  • Gambling
  • Sexual Activerties
  • Internet 
These types of activety can release the hormone dopamine, that cause us to have a rush of pleasure. An addict will repeat this action over and over again because they become dependent on this rush of pleasure.
 

The Different Stages of Addictions

  1. The first time. (some people are more likely than other to try something new).
  2. The second time. (some people will try a substance or something new just once then never bother again, while others will actively seek it out again because they enjoy the feelings so much.
  3. Dosage starts to increase. ( As our bodies begin to build up a tolerance to the dopamine in the brain, the user will then need to increase the dosage of the substance or the activity to produce the same feelings).
  4. Dependence. (The user now depends on the substance or activity as they can no longer function normally without it).

  • Weight Gain
  • Weakened immune System
  • Feeling Unwell more frequently
  • Changes in Energy
  • Rapid Mood Change
