How does alcohol hypnosis to stop drinking work?

My hypnotherapy alcohol reduction system deals with emotional issues connected to drinking too much alcohol such as; boredom, stress or upsets. The alcohol reduction hypnotherapy allows you to gain control of your choices again by breaking the habit of drinking, reprogramming your sleep patterns and releasing cravings thus setting you free from the trap of alcohol. There are two routes to take back control of your drinking; Firstly, I have developed a range of hypnotherapy downloads including Take control of alcohol, Stop binge drinking for women and Stop binge drinking for men to provide you with the support to reduce alcohol in the privacy of your own home. Each alcohol hypnosis download is priced at £14.99, just the cost of a few drinks. You can listen at bedtime or after work. I recommend you try the recordings as many of my customers around the world have taken back control using this hypnotherapy alcohol reduction programme. Secondly, you can have one-to-one hypnotherapy phone appointments which are tailored to break your specific drinking habits and this will give you an opportunity deal with other life issues you may be facing. During the appointments, I will work through an alcohol reduction plan. Whether you decide to buy the hypnosis downloads or try the hypnotherapy appointments, I also recommend you read my book 'Cut the Crap and Feel Amazing' which trains the mind to let go of the negative, rise above the drama and get into the amazing zone including a fantastic chapter on addictions.

Hypnotherapy is a fully conscious deep relaxation where the mind is more able to take on positive suggestions thus making it easy to change alcohol habits and patterns.  You have programmed yourself to drink alcohol in the same way that someone programmes themselves to drive a car.  If you try to forget how to drink at your current level, you can't in the same way you can't forget how to drive.  The drinking habit is merely an alcohol programme in your mind.  The safe hypnotherapy relaxation will help change that alcohol programme in your mind similar to putting new software into your computer. This will allow you to create new drinking habits. You will only make the changes you want so you are very much in control. I am not going to make you stop drinking altogether if you want to still enjoy the odd glass of wine or bottle of beer.

Alcohol consumption often builds up over time becoming a habit hard to break with willpower alone or alcohol can increase following a bereavement, a prolonged illness, a financial crisis, work demands, being a parent dealing with children, relationship issues, running your own business, general pressures of modern living and social drinking pressure from fellow workers or friends.

Most clients do not want to stop drinking altogether but would instead like to reduce down alcohol to a safe limit as they may be concerned about health issues, are tired of feeling sluggish or alcohol is impacting on work performance and career.  Other people find their relationships are being affected by the effects of excess alcohol.  Hypnotherapy is a treatment which offers a solution to get you back in control alcohol. Some clients decide to give up drinking altogether a few months later as they get used to the reduction in alcohol and feel ready to let it go. Most of my clients choose to reduce down to an occasional social drink or only having an alcoholic drink at the weekend.

The one-to-one sessions hypnotherapy alcohol appointments are more expensive than the alcohol hypnosis downloads, but both are complete programmes which offer a choice of prices to suit your budget. I recommended you make relaxation part of your daily routine other hypnosis download recordings are ideal relaxation tools. You can try follow-on titles such as 'Build confidence and self-esteem' and 'Money -Increase your wealth' to improve your life further. Remember everything is coming from your mind.

A Marie Claire magazine journalist writing about Ailsa's alcohol hypnotherapy appointments

"Since the hypnotherapy to stop drinking alcohol my once-toxic relationship with alcohol has gone through an unequivocal break-up. I start to notice other small shifts. For instance, I start buying sparkling water and filling my usual wine glass with it of an evening to relax. It feels just the same as drinking wine, minus the fuzzy head and rambling conversations over dinner. I also start running more regularly and practising yoga twice a week – a goal I’d worked towards for at least a year but never quite managed. I start eating healthier lunches and dinners and getting up earlier, feeling refreshed and energised rather than shattered and slightly depressed. The change is noticeable and quite remarkable."

How many appointments?

The one-to-one hypnotherapy phone appointments are tailored to deal with individual issues to suit each clients requirements.

I like to move people on as quickly as they can safely make the changes, so most people have 2-4 sessions although some have a few more.  I try to keep it to a minimum, teaching the client what to do so they can get on with things themselves. 

If a hypnotherapist tries to sign you up for six sessions at the beginning, I would think again. Hypnotherapy works quickly moving clients forward to their goals also each person is individual. I can have the most hardened drinker who will make the changes in two sessions because they are ready for it or a more moderate drinker that needs four sessions. Everyone responds differently, and you will only reduce down at a safe pace for you. The success comes from the commitment of the client to listen to the relaxation hypnosis recordings in between appointments. The hypnosis download/recording is a bit like a prescription from the doctor, if you don't take the antibiotic you can't expect the infection to go away.  If you don't listen to the hypnosis recording regularly, then it is hard to help someone as your mind needs to get used to the new changes by repetitively reprogramming the mind.  Eventually drinking less will become second nature. Some hypnotherapist will say you need to give up alcohol altogether, but I work in a way that allows you to reduce down to a safe level as most clients want to be able to still enjoy a drink on occasions.  Most clients want to reduce to sensible weekend drinking where other clients decide to give up altogether, but it is their choice as we set individual goals at the beginning of the sessions. I deal with the root of the drinking; if you don't deal with why you are drinking you may take up another bad habit, to cope with a stressful life. I recommend you use the follow-up tools which I teach to keep you on top of life not consumed by it. I teach follow up techniques such as self-hypnosis which strengthens the changes we do in the sessions.

During the first appointment, we discuss all your habits related to drinking alcohol and other issues such as stress and lifestyle. An individual appointment allows you to change other things such as family pressures, money worries, job issues or other general concerns.

The hypnotherapy for drinking less alcohol helps you release cravings and create new habits and patterns in your mind allowing you to say "no" to a drink. You will begin to see results after the first session. Emotional issues such as low self-esteem need to be addressed too, so you can feel thoroughly relaxed and comfortable around drinkers without feeling you need to drink. Most people think they feel fully confident but when you think back to the number of times you have had an extra drink from the persuasion of others you'll begin to realise that like everyone else you do need a confidence boost.

Facts about alcohol:

• Anyone who drinks regularly can become dependent on alcohol.
• By the time a liver test detects damage, the harm has been inflicted.

Alcohol Units can be confusing, so the easiest way to understand safe drinking levels is to never go beyond a couple of drinks at one time and to limit your drinking to a maximum of 3-4 days per week.  An occasional social drink is the safest way to drink.  The body needs time off from alcohol to detox.  People around you may try to influence your drinking behaviour you can't change them, but you can change yourself.
