Drinking and Hypnotherapy

screen-shot-2016-09-23-at-18-24-55“I do find society’s attitude to alcohol very paradoxical. The whole of the western world is geared to the encouragement of the consumption of alcohol, but at the same time we loathe, denigrate and pity alcoholics. How can that be right? We use pretty much every opportunity as an excuse to have a drink. We know that alcohol is a poison so we drink to the edge of falling off that cliff. People work to the premise that having a hangover is acceptable. Is this some kind of perverse self-discipline?
Alcohol is poisonous. It completely wrecks our internal systems. It screws you yet we crave more.”

Those eloquent words come from a client I have worked with over several years, and who has not had any alcohol for more than a year now.

The client calls it paradoxical; I would say hypocritical. Alcohol is openly sold everywhere –  corner newsagents, petrol screen-shot-2016-09-23-at-18-19-15stations, convenience stores, supermarkets – and even specialist wine shops. It is freely advertised and frequently discounted. “Having a drink” is considered sociable, “the done thing” – and yet, as my client observed, pity the person who finds they cannot control the habit. Alcoholics are considered below contempt, lacking willpower and self-control. The message seems to be, “drink as much as you can, go right up to the wire, and we’ll tell you it’s fine, you’re one of us. But step over, fall down that abyss and you’re out.”

Those on the road to alcoholism find themselves becoming increasingly devious in hiding the habit, cunning in concealing the empties. The habit can destroy not only the life of the drinker but also those around him or her

There is no magic wand remedy for alcoholism, not even with hypnotherapy.
But it could well be that someone who is drinking more than is good for them is carrying a spirit “passenger” who likes the taste of alcohol. Or it could be that abuse or trauma early in this life – or in a previous life – holds the key to this destructive, addictive behaviour.

Welcome to Effective Hypnotherapy with me, Judy Sharp!

Thank you for finding your way to my website – www.effective-hypotherapy.co.uk.

Jude new pic screen shotMy name is Judy Sharp. I blend clinical hypnotherapy with past life and spirit release work to create a very powerful and highly-effective process for helping people with a wide variety of issues including:
fears and phobias
pain control
general anxiety
stress management
stopping smoking
issues with weight control
hypnotic gastric banding
sudden changes in behaviour
certain addictive behaviour patterns
I feel I need to clarify who I am as some people have been in touch recently a tad confused about the use of the phrase Effective Hypnotherapy.

Spirit Release conquers Gambling Addiction – what are the odds of that?

Spirit Release Work

One of the reasons I chose hypnotherapy all those years ago was that it could be successfully used across such a wide range of issues, and it was much quicker and more direct at finding the root cause of an issue than some other modalities.

Screen shot 2015-05-15 at 5.52.07 PMAt that time I did not realise just how much more effective it would be with the added power of past life and spirit release work. Let me give you one example, of a young man in his mid-20s who came to see me. He was lovely, charming, a ray of sunshine, but there was a dullness about him. He explained that, on his 18th birthday, he had gone into a local betting shop, just because he could. Somehow, he had become hooked on gambling – and nowadays, as he said, he didn’t even need to go into a betting shop: it was all done on his mobile phone. He was gambling up to £500 a week, hiding it from his mother and his girlfriend and, as he said, because he was lying about it, he couldn’t even cash in and share the big win he’d had a couple of months before he came to see me!

He had tried counselling before, and it had been effective for a short while, but he had drifted back and now really wanted to kick the habit. He did not feel that counselling was strong enough to help him do that. Someone had suggested hypnotherapy, and he found his way to me. Like most new clients, he was a bit wary when I explained about past lives and spirit “passengers” and soul retrieval but, as some level, it all made sense to him, and said he was willing to give it a go.

In the first session we found some spirit “passengers” and had them escorted to the light where they belonged. We had also ascertained that we needed to check a past life, and we had a list of the years to look at for soul retrieval.

When he returned for the next session, the young man looked brighter. I asked how he had been and his reply was really interesting. “I have not felt the need to gamble since our last session,” he said, with a big smile on his face.

In that second session, we found a past life. It was not dramatic, or traumatic, as some of the lives I am guided to: on the contrary. The man we found was alone – and lonely – throughout his life, and felt that his life had been wasted, there was so much more he should have, could have done if only …. if only …. When I asked him what advice he would give to the young man on the couch, he immediately said, “make the most of your life. Make the most of your family. Don’t waste it as I have done.”

At the end of the session, the client was visibly moved by the experience: he had clearly taken on board the lessons of that other life.

He positively bounced into the room for his third and last session. “Well?” I asked. He looked puzzled. “Oh no, I haven’t even thought about it,” he said, “doesn’t even bother me any more.”

Screen shot 2015-05-15 at 5.52.56 PMWith the client once more in a deep state of relaxation, we found and “brought home” the stray parts of the soul that had been left behind at times of trauma. Various emotions came out – confusion, anger, resentment … they were all left behind, and the soul fragments re-integrated. At the end of the session, the client said he felt each of the separate emotions in various parts of his body as the process was under way: a sensitive young man.

It was clear to both the client and to me that the root cause of his gambling had been a spirit “passenger”, probably picked up early on in one of the betting shops. To have such an immediate and positive result was certainly a surprise to the client – and with the money he had saved even in the three weeks that he had been coming to see me, he was able to take his girlfriend away for a lovely long weekend to celebrate!

“Danny” (not his real name) kindly agreed to record a testimonial – in this short clip he explains his experiences with the spirit release and past life sessions.

And here he explains how he felt about the work that we did together.
