Addiction and Addictive Behaviour Counselling, Coaching and CBT (Edinburgh, Glasgow, Falkirk, Stirling)

Addiction can be helped with Hypnotherapy, Coaching, CBT and Psychotherapy.

This can Work in a number of ways:

  • Hypnosis can be used in a Clinical Hypnosis model to reduce physical cravings
  • Psychological therapy and or Hypnotherapy can tackle psychosomatic reasons for wanting the addiction
  • CBT: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy / Training can alter the way the client "sees", "feels" and behaviours towards things.
  • Healing and Hypnotic Healing can assist directly
  • Motivational counselling can tip the psychological balance, that compared benefits and costs of the addiction. Many of these are often subconscious.
  • People under stress suffer more likelihood of dependence, therefore relaxation and stress management are of great assistance.
  • Hypnosis or NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) can be used to help control mood.
  • Morita psychology: Japanese origin for of psychology similar to life coaching which denies the "victim" stance, and encourages living life the best possible way, despite any ailments that can not be "cured".
  • Life coaching and lifestyle change to provide new positive activities and sources of enjoyment -  thus changing the balance of motivation and enjoyment.
  • CBT based psychological therapies are often recommended by NICE and the NHS for addictions support.
  • Psychoanalysis can often tackle the deeper underlying reasons for addiction and addictive behaviour.

Addictions assisted using counselling, hypnotherapy, psychotherapy, CBT, include (Edinburgh, Glasgow, Falkirk, Stirling):

  • Prescribed drugs
  • Illegal Drugs
  • Gambling
  • Smoking
  • Cannabis
  • Alcohol
  • Sex
  • Obsessive compulsions
  • Food
  • Sugar
  • Computer
  • Internet
  • Internet Porn
  • Internet Gambling
  • Other less well known examples

 Different types of addiction counselling presentation (Edinburgh, Glasgow, Falkirk, Stirling):

Some people have a single issue -  their addiction. Most of these people choose to consult local NHS or Community Health Teams for support. Alternatively they may decide to use clinical hypnotherapy combined with more conventional methods such as CBT and motivational interviewing and seek support from the private sector, such as ourselves.

Complex and Dual Diagnosis / co-morbidity counselling cases (Edinburgh, Glasgow, Falkirk, Stirling):

Many people are actually complex cases where a mental health condition such as anxiety, depression or Bipolar exists alongside their addiction. Often state provision treats one problem as primary, and almost dismisses the other. For example a community mental health team may prioritise the mental health disorder and simply instruct the client to "stop" using the addictive substance, as if it is a free choice and naughty habit.  Also often addiction services refuse to treat addicts who have mental health disorders.

Frequently people with mental health disorders attempt a form of self medication and mood control using substances such as alcohol, caffeine and nicotine. This is often referred to as a maladaptive coping mechanism. A dual issue then arises where they feel they need the substance(s) in order to control their mental health issues, but they also find the substance develops an addictive life of it's own.

It is sadly commonplace to find high functioning people, given no support, yet struggling to reduce an addiction, yet finding their underlying condition therefore harder to control.

The solution to this kind of situation is a joined up response with lifestyle changes, working with the GP / Specialist to choose appropriate medication, and use of psychological therapies and life coaching. That way positive changes, and new and more positive medication can be combined to create a fresh start.

Often it is vital to address the deeper personal issues that may result from ongoing patterns of perception or behaviour, and these can be deep rooted. Once the addiction is under tight management, psychoanalysis can be used to address these deeper issues for long term change.

How to seek complementary health counselling support for addiction (Edinburgh, Glasgow, Falkirk, Stirling)

Not all physical addictions should be assisted without advice- first consult your medical doctor to ensure proper medical diagnosis has taken place.

Next it may be worthwhile consulting a professional therapist to see whether hypnotherapy or psychotherapy could help you. 

No claim is made to cure any medical condition. Complementary health assistance must be with medical doctor's permission and following the client consulting a medical doctor. Where physical addictions are present, the client may need to remain under medical supervision. Some forms of therapy are not permitted with some addictions under standards of practice.

We provide complentary assistance drawing on many years of experience of tackling both addictions and the underlying emotional causes of addiction.

We adhere to the DANOS (Drugs and Alcohol National Occupational Standards) where appropriate. We work alongside medical and NHS personnel to help clients design an appropriate overall care plan.

Stuart completed recent (2009) Post graduate research and study into addiction and dual diagnosis.

Addiction is a complex area -  you may find many "alternative" sites offering various silly responses.  Feel free to try them if you will, but be clear that addiction is a serious and major condition that can not be cured by tapping, needles, rapid therapy or any other snake oil therapy!


From 2010 psychological therapy will also contain elements of mindfulness and CBT in order to increase client development between sessions.

We adhere to appropriate National Occupational Standards, carry professional insurance and support voluntary regulation of therapists. We support the coming voluntary regulation of psychotherapy and counselling. Stuart and Denise are CNHC registered hypnotherapists (voluntary regulation of hypnotherapy).

During 2015 Stuart and Denise carried out extensive continuous professional development specifically in the area of analysis. Stuart completed post qualification competency training in CBASP (cognitive behavioural analysis system of psychotherapy) and both Stuart and Denise trained in clinical application of mindfulness with depression and mental health. Both trainings were provided by NHS employed clinicians and were run at local universities.


Combined with long term ongoing training in mental health and health provision topics through the Open University, and with other specialist training such as PODS training in dissociative disorders, both therapists are committed to practical and applied training for mental health conditions.


Mental health treatment is based around methods recommended in NICE guidelines, and those fully researched as effective such as CBASP. More information on both adherence to NICE guidelines and on underpinning research please visit our other site www.psychoanalysis.center
