Addiction

Addictions are very common - around a third of people are addicted to something. Addiction is defined as not having control over doing, taking or using something to the point where it could be harmful to you.

 

Depending on your addiction, you may need support from a medical specialist in that field. The therapies listed below can also assist you in overcoming an addiction.  This list is not exhaustive, please see www.nhs.co.uk for further advice.

Therapies that help

Hypnotherapy

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy combines psychotherapy and relaxation in an evidence-based approach that helps people with all types of addiction.  Guided imagery and relaxation can help the body manage the physical symptoms of addiction withdrawal.  For smoking addiction, many Solution Focused Hypnotherapists offer a single session comprising  pscyhoeducation and clinical hypnosis, helping you to see positive results immediately.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture may help relieve symptoms of drug withdrawal by:

  • normalising the release of dopamine in the mesolimbic system, reducing the over-stimulating effects of abused drugs and modifying behaviours associated with addiction including behaviours around desire and reward. 

  • reducing anxiety by altering the brain's mood chemistry.

  • modulating postsynaptic neuronal activity to reduce nicotine addiction and promoting patterns in the brain that relieve anxiety that can follow nicotine withdrawal.
