Addiction Cork Ireland

hypnotherapist cork

Hi, my name is Paul Hunter. If you were googling “addiction” or addictions”, then you have come to the right place.

I am a Clinical Hypnotherapist, CBT Practitioner and Mindfulness Practitioner and I have been helping the people of Munster overcome their addictions for the past fifteen years.

Many people who have a problem, wonder if they can get it under control, or do they have to stay away from the source of their problem forever more. My rule of thumb would be that if you have made a serious attempt at staying away from whatever it is you have been addicted to, and you’ve failed, you may have to just accept that you can’t continue.

Hypnosis and CBT make the journey of an addict so much easier, but I always warn people that it does take some effort and commitment on your behalf. You have to sincerely want the change. 

You may also need the help of a support group. I always suggest doing everything you need to in order to make sure you succeed.

What Causes Addictions?

There is no simple answer to what causes addiction but there is a stong theory that says that it’s down to how your brain handles dopamine. This is why some people get addicted to a substance or behaviour and others don’t.

There are a number of other factors that affact your likelihood of having an addiction. Here are some of them:

  • Your gene’s – if you have a parent or relative with addiction problems you are more prone to developing an addiction yourself
  • Bad childhood experiences – traumatic childhood experiences make you more likely to experience addiction issues
  • Easy access: if access to the substance / behaviour is easy, then you’ll be more likely to indulge. The behaviour of your peer group can influence this.

Addiction Treatment Cork

The longer you practice an addiction, the stronger it becomes so the time to tackle your problem is right now. 

I not only deal with the addictive feelings but I also look at what’s causing the addiction. Typically, an addict will use the thing they are addicted to as a form of escape. When you deal with the negative life events of negative self beliefs that cause addiction, you’ll have greater success in staying clean or sober. 

So why not come to see me for a FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION where you can tell me all about your problem and I can explain all about the therapy so that you are satisfied that this is the correct route for you to take as part of your recovery journey?
