How does the Hypnosis to 'Stop Drinking' Work?

My system of hypnotherapy deals with emotional issues connected to drinking alcohol such as boredom, stress or upsets which allows you to gain control of your choices again, it breaks the habit of drinking, reprograms your sleep patterns and releases cravings setting you free to be in control of the alcohol again. I have developed a range of hypnotherapy downloads and Hypnosis Recordings to provide you with the support to take back control of alcohol in the privacy of your own home. Priced at £14.99 each 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 my system. I also recommend 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.

Hypnotherapy is a fully conscious deep relaxation where the mind is more able to take on positive suggestions thus making it easy to change 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 the same way you can't forget how to drive.  The drinking habit is merely a programme in your mind.  The safe hypnotherapy relaxation will help change that 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. 

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 pressure, 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 like to reduce down to a safe limit as they may be concerned about health issues or are tired of feeling sluggish.  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. Some clients decide to give up altogether a few months later as they get used to the reduction in alcohol they feel ready to let it go the typical changes are reducing down to an occasional social drink or only having alcohol at the weekend.

My Hypnosis recording  MP3 downloads are cost-effective complete programs for you to listen to in the privacy of your own home.  I recommended you make relaxation part of your routine hypnosis recordings are idea follow-on titles I suggest are 'Build confidence and self-esteem' and 'Money -Increase your wealth' which are useful for everyone and support your long-term improvements to your life generally.

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

"Since the hypnotherapy, with Ailsa, 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 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 and other issues such as stress and lifestyle. An individual appointment allows you to change other things such as work stress, family issues or other general concerns.

The hypnotherapy helps you release cravings and create new habits and patterns in your mind allowing you to say "no" to a drink or to be in control. You will begin to see results after the first session. Emotional issues such as low self-esteem need to be addressed, 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.

Client comments after Hypnotherapy appointments with Ailsa Frank:

"Drinking under control since second hypnotherapy appointment and I haven't even thought about using cocaine. Feeling very calm about the future whereas before I was incredibly fearful and stressed. It feels good to be in control."

"It's been absolutely lovely working with you and thank you so much for helping me and my husband to finally take control of our drinking. Honestly, it's such a relief and has already had a hugely positive impact!"

"I can take it or leave alcohol since the alcohol hypnosis session.  It is now like a cup of tea I have one occasionally, but if I don't have one, it doesn't matter."

"I think I should have done this a long time ago.  I sleep soundly, and I am more relaxed, have not drunk alcohol since session which is what I want. I still get an occasional urge, but I just make a coffee instead, or the feeling passes anyway."

Facts about alcohol:

• By the time a liver test detects damage the damage is already done.

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.
