Hypnosis, Biofeedback and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy are some of the best methods to effectively reverse the habits and addictions that affect so many of us. Psychotherapy has long known that the reason we as human beings develop undesirable habits is often an effort to relieve our anxieties and to allow us to escape from uncomfortable thoughts and feelings. Through these techniques patients can effectively decrease the cravings caused by the drugs and in conjunction with other methods, the individual can eventually be free of the awful chains created by the addiction.
Aside from the more notable habits (smoking, drinking and drugs), today’s society with its fast pace and immediate pleasure has brought to the human psyche an ever increasing quantity of escape modalities i.e., television, video games, computers, movies, food, pornography, cell phones, not to mention lesser regarded escapes such as shopping, exercise, nail biting and hair pulling.
All these habits function to relieve us of fear and pain at a subconscious level and through Hypnosis, Biofeedback and CBT, they can be replaced with more productive and constructive behaviors.
