Overcome issues with

Addiction & Dependency

with hypnotherapy.

Stop addiction or dependency on a substance, activity or even other people having a negative impact on your life.

When we become addicted to or dependent upon a substance, activity or even other people it can impact us negatively and lead to anxiety and depression. Together we can change how you think about things you'd like to moderate or eliminate from your life.

How are you going today?

If things aren't OK, that's OK. My name's Tom and I'm a mindset mentor and hypnotherapist and I am here to help you. We'll usually get things started with a fee-free chat where we can get to know each other and whether we think we're a good fit!

What to expect

Then over about 3 weeks I'll use a range of proven, drug-free approaches to help you rapidly access and reprogram conscious and subconscious thinking that may be driving this pattern.

These include dialogue, writing, drawing, storytelling, mindset mentoring and remedial hypnosis (or hypnotherapy). Many of these techniques have been used in healing for thousands of years. Today they’re also used to create behavioural change and promote mental wellbeing in business, coaching, counselling, education, health & fitness, personal growth, professional development, relationships, sport and more.

We will also look at your holistic health and wellbeing and the impact of things like diet, sleep, movement, nature and relationships on your ability to process the world around you and your place in it.


Recognise & Recalibrate

We identify what needs to change, why and look at things from a different perspective.


Reprogram & Resolve

We actually change how you process and respond to what's going on around and within you.


Reinforce & Repeat

Building on new patterns of behaviour we give you the tools to manage things on your own.

What's going on?

Did you know that many of the negative patterns of thinking we run are buried deeply in the subconscious? This 'auto-pilot' part of our mind accounts for over 95% of our thinking and, from the moment we are born, it's shaped by our upbringing, relationships, environmental dynamics, cultural conditioning and our primal instincts.

Over time, these patterns and pathways become 'hardwired' in the brain, which makes it very hard to change the way we think, behave or live our lives... even when we know what we need to change and why.

So if you're making poor choices or feeling overwhelmed, anxious, stressed, disconnected, out of control or simply stuck in a rut, it's probably something deeply embedded in the archive of your memory, someplace beyond the reach of your conscious mind and rational decision making.

Hypnosis helps heaps

Clinical hypnosis, or hypnotherapy, is a proven, drug-free approach that can work faster and go deeper than other forms of therapy. It allows you to rapidly access and reprogram your negative subconscious beliefs and habits so you can be a healthier happier you.

And if your first question is along the lines of 'Will I dance like Elvis?' or 'Will I cluck like a chicken?' then you're getting clinical hypnosis (which is used to heal) mixed up with stage hypnosis (which is used to entertain)!

How hypnotherapy helps you to change your relationship with

Addiction & Dependency

Alright, let's talk about how hypnotherapy can help you kick an addiction or dependency — whether it's cigarettes, booze, drugs, or even those damn digital devices. Get ready to take a journey into the power of your own mind!

Now, addiction can be really tricky to deal with. It sinks its claws into you, convincing you that you can't live without whatever it is that you're hooked on. But here's the truth — the solution is within you. Yes, you read that right:

The problem is you, and the solution is you.

This is about confronting yourself, challenging your deep-rooted beliefs and flipping the script. And that's where hypnotherapy comes in. It's like a sneaky little Jedi mind trick that helps you reprogram your thinking from the inside out. We're talking about hacking those neural pathways and rewiring your brain, so you don't fall into the same old destructive patterns. It's all about unlearning the bullshit and creating a new reality for yourself.

During your hypnotherapy sessions, you'll be guided into a relaxed state. Picture it like reclining in a comfy chair, while a soothing voice whispers in your ear. Now, this ain't no magic show where you'll be clucking like a chicken or doing the Macarena. It's about accessing the power of your subconscious mind, where all those deep-seated beliefs and habits reside.

You see, addiction isn't just about the substance or behaviour itself. It's about what's going on inside your head. What triggers you to turn to that addiction? Is it stress, anxiety, or some unresolved trauma? Hypnotherapy helps you dig deep and uncover those hidden triggers, giving you the opportunity to confront them head-on.

Through the power of suggestion and visualisation, we'll challenge those addictive urges. Together we'll guide you towards healthier coping strategies and behaviours, so you can break free from the chains of addiction. It's like rewiring your brain's GPS to take a detour away from the old habits and onto a path of liberation.

But let's not forget about the power of your own motivation and self-belief — hypnotherapy can help boost your confidence and remind you that you're stronger than you think. It's about unleashing that inner strength that makes you capable of overcoming any addiction or dependency.

Now, I won't sugarcoat it... Hypnotherapy isn't a magic potion that guarantees instant results. It takes commitment, effort, and a willingness to confront your demons!

I feel ten feet tall and I'm normally 5'7 so I'm feeling great!

My teenage son is a different person! After the first session I immediately noticed an improvement in his ability to control his feelings and manage his anger.

After each session I see things a lot brighter. I really do see things differently. Even things like colours are more vibrant.

How we work together

Principles of practice

Before you choose to work with me, it's important that you read, understand and agree with these simple principles of practice:


What's said between us stays between us

Everything we discuss is confidential, unless I believe that someone may be in danger or if we agree that someone else needs to be involved.


Shaping what’s to come

This is not about spending hours trying to make sense of your past — it’s about creating the future you want. We combine previous experiences with realistic future goals to highlight how you can overcome challenges, make better decisions and utilise your resources to create change, fast.


We work together

I do not magically 'fix' you or give you the answers — all that's going to come from you! I simply guide you through a highly personalised process, tailored to your specific needs, that requires your honesty, commitment, input and action.


'Feeling' better by 'doing' better

I am not here to help you 'feel' better. I am here to help you 'do' better (and by taking action you will be able to make yourself feel better)! The process of doing better can bring up things that you find confronting and unpleasant emotions or memories may surface. But this is part of the process, as only by identifying them can we truly target them.


Working on what you need right now

Everyone is different, has different needs and thinks differently from one day to the next, so we take an adaptable approach with wriggle room for the unexpected! There may be tears, there is usually laughter and lots of other emotions in between.


Determining what is real rather than imagined

We will establish what your true challenges are, their triggers and the impact on your life. Your processing, filtering and response patterns will be challenged and assessed.


Creating change that lasts

We embed the courage, resources and power that enable you to continue to make choices that create long-lasting change, disrupt negative thinking and make decisions with confidence.


Doing it all with direction, confidence and positivity

We establish what’s important to you — your sense of purpose or your ‘north star’ — and this becomes the platform from which you can process thoughts, filter feelings, amplify your strengths, add value and respond to the world around you in a new and positive way.
