Trauma, Addiction, Hypnosis and ERT

Are you dealing with an Addiction issue, Trauma, and Stress, and have tried many standard options, such as 12 step meetings, and chemical dependency treatment agencies? Are you ready to stop the addiction, and let go of the stress and trauma that have been plaguing your life for years.  I have worked in the Hypnosis, and Chemical Addiction field for over 25 years. When I first attended school, and was taught how to help people deal with their trauma, stress, and addictions, it was a common belief that the main cause of a person’s addiction was the substance, the drug, the alcohol, etc. That belief no longer holds true. Today there is a growing body of evidence that suggest that all long term Addiction steams from Stress, and Trauma.

Trauma comes in many different forms and many different levels. While seeking out and talking about the original trauma, has been proven effective in some cases, the most important thing to remember is that your memories and images of the original trauma(s), create emotional responses, such as stress, anxiety, guilt, loneliness,  all leading to seeking relief through addiction /addictive behavior.

It was Einstein who stated, “you can’t solve the problem at the level of the problem”.  With the help of hypnosis and specifically a technique called ERT or Emotional Release Therapy, clients have found fast relief from the emotions of trauma within the first session. Once a client is able to obtain release from the emotions that have been causing stress, and the continued relief through addictive behaviors, then the work of finding a more appropriate response outside of addiction, and addictive behaviors can begin.

Using Hypnosis and ERT, has helped clients stop addictions to Crystal Meth, Alcohol, Nicotine, and a long list of other substances, and behaviors.  While there is no magic cure for any kind of chemical dependency / addiction, there are many tools and supports that can help ease the stress, and anxiety from trauma, and addiction. In my 25 years as a hypnotherapist and my work in the chemical addiction field, I can guarantee that Hypnosis is one of the most powerful and effective tools.
