There is often a way to resolve problem gambling that works with the roots of the issue in a manner that is so efficient that most other treatments cannot compare. Not only that, but it also empowers people by teaching techniques and tools which can give them back control.
Problem gambling can creep up gradually, and just as non-gamblers find it hard to understand why someone could risk everything when the odds are so clearly against them, gamblers are frequently unaware that their habit has developed into a problem.
If you gamble when you don’t wish to, or continue past the point where you know you should throw in the towel, if you lose money that you need for other things, or if the people around you complain until you genuinely feel you must defend your gambling, then you may have a problem.
Compulsive gambling can rapidly reach the point where it seems almost difficult to stop.
And since gambling plays with our most elementary subconscious systems, many believe that only hypnotherapy can truly treat it.
A good deal of a gambler’s life is spent resolving the problems that gambling brings like paying bills, placating family and friends and even preserving a normal life.
They often start to lose interest in socializing, causing them to cut ties with the healthy influences in their lives.
Generally they start to lie or go to severe lengths to hide their gambling actions from friends and loved ones.
They often get caught in a vicious circle of trying to gamble their way out of the monetary issues that gambling is mainly responsible for.
The compulsive gambler may find that they are taking up loans they can’t repay, selling things that they cherish and/or outright disregarding bills to further fund their gambling.
This vicious cycle often can be broken by making use of hypnosis.
By using hypnotherapy we can tackle the underlying emotions that drive this problem behaviour.
The desire/need to gamble could be attributed to numerous things like shock, low self confidence/self-esteem, feeling out of control and stressful life situations.
Often gamblers lose so much control that they can’t consciously pinpoint precisely where it all went wrong, and how they ended up surrendering to such impulsive behaviour.
