Breaking Habits

How would you like to overcome your unwanted habits and learn techniques to avoid setbacks and overcome obsticals.

We can develop unwanted habits simply as a way of dealing with stress and boredom.

All the habits that we have in our lives right now – either wanted or unwanted, are there for a reason. In some way, these behaviours provide a benefit to us, even if they are harmful to us in other ways.

Because unwanted habits provide us with some type of benefit in our life, it can be difficult to simply eliminate them. Instead, we need to replace them with a new habit that provides a similar benefit.

Unwanted habits are a negative behaviour pattern and common examples can include:

  • nail biting over-eating smoking emotional shopping
  • wasting time online skin picking eating candy excessive alcohol
  • video games over spending obsessively checking your phone
  • eating chocolate hair picking negative self-talk Facebook/Twitter use

I can help you to break your unwanted habits, using a combination of NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) techniques and hypnosis.

Together we will:

  • Choose a substitute for your unwanted habits that provide similar benefits and plan ahead of time how you will respond when you face the stress or boredom that prompts your unwanted habits.
  • Analyse when your unwanted habits show up, how many times a day do you do it, where are you and who are you with when you do it.
  • Identify as many triggers as possible to make it easier on yourself by avoiding the things that cause them.
  • Make a plan to overcome setbacks if you get off track rather than beating yourself up over a mistake.
  • Focus on awareness and show you how to actually make change.
  • Visualise yourself succeeding and see yourself building a new identity.

When we are engaging in unwanted habits, we are running on auto-pilot and we do them without even thinking about them, so the first thing we need to do to reform the habits, requires us to pay attention to the triggering cues.

Awareness alone does not change the strength of the habit memory, but are effective because they enhance executive control processes.

Sometimes we want to change an unwanted habit but we are not ready to give it up, or we do not believe that it is possible to change because we may have been doing it over a prolonged period of time.

Successful treatment of unwanted habits starts with us believing that we can achieve it, and the expectation that the process we are about to undertake will work.

By targeting the unconscious mind with powerful suggestion techniques, I can help you to develop a positive relationship with your unwanted habits.
