EMDR and Hypnotherapy for quitting drinking, emotional eating and releasing trauma. Have you tried repeatedly to quit drinking alcohol or emotional eating and are now feeling defeated or stuck? You have likely been trying to fix a subconscious problem with conscious methods (willpower/ talk therapy), which doesn't usually work. If you have experienced trauma you may be unwittingly self-medicating to cope with emotional flashbacks by using alcohol, food or smoking. These problems may have effected your confidence or relationships.
I use eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR), hypnosis and parts work to help my clients quit unwanted habits and emotions. EMDR is very effective at helping people to process either single incident or complex trauma, but it also works remarkably well to help you overcome cravings or unwanted urges to engage in behaviours that you later regret.
Having had my own lived experience with above issues, I understand how defeated and hopeless you can feel when you have kept making and breaking promises to yourself or others. Many of my clients have found success with Better Day therapies when they have nearly given up hope. If you contact me we can arrange a chat to see if this therapy is right for you.

I use two subconscious therapies: Hypnotherapy and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy to help you achieve your goals. Both therapies effectively target the subconscious mind to help you overcome unwanted habits, thoughts, cravings or emotional flashbacks. I ask that you allow 2 hours for your first session and 90 mins for any subsequent sessions.
