Can hypnosis help my serious alcohol problem?
I have a serious alcohol problem. How much can I expect hypnosis to help me – and which ones? I also get very stressed out at work and use drink to de-stress.

Hello Judith and thank you for writing in.
I have certainly used hypnosis over the years to help heavy drinkers control and stop toxic alcohol consumption.
But beyond just the clinical experience of my and other therapists' use of hypnosis to help out-of-control drinking, there hasn't yet been enough research into the efficacy of hypnosis and alcohol abuse. And when small studies are done, they tend to use simplistic models of hypnotic induction. But you can read feedback from people who have used our downloads to alleviate their drinking.
Excessive drinking is often used as a way of trying to meet a very real need. But the attempt to meet the need becomes a problem in itself. To feel less stressed at work, you could look at these work-related sessions to see which is the best fit for you.
Things can really improve for you and I wish you all the best,
