Honest and Ethical Hypnotherapy in Newcastle
In the last week I was contacted by a potential client who needed help in overcoming and addiction. A great question they asked was “Is this Guaranteed to work?” – “Absolutely not” I replied. They went on to tell me that they has either seen or been told by a local hypnotherapist in Newcastle that any work they did together was indeed guaranteed. This perspective client went on to say they were glad I didn’t guarantee success as this sounded ridiculous.
Apart from being in breach of no small few marketing laws, of most hypnotherapy codes of professional conduce, it is plainly UNTRUE. No Newcastle hypnotherapist, counsellor, coach psychotherapist or change worker can GUARANTEE success. It should be obvious why.
5 Reasons Why Hypnotherapist’s Should Not Guarantee Success
- They can not tell the future.
- It is completely unethical.
- It will place unrealistic expectations on the therapist.
- Clients may feel they have no work to do themselves.
- It will disempower clients in their own abilities.
Addictions and Habits
Most problematic addictions do not start out that way. Drug taking, Alcohol, Emotional Shopping practically always start out as pleasurable and fun! Problems arise over time when the fun and enjoyment start to drift out and the person, you? Need to have more a a drug, more shopping, more ever increasing [ insert addiction here ] to get the same feeling of pleasure that is shorter and shorter lived.
As addictions form in a neurobiological sense, neural networks for a specific addiction become stronger. This is like a well work path in a forest. The more the path is used the more known, familiar and easy it is to use. As this happens a transcription factor called DeltaFosB is deposited in various places in the brain which makes behaviours become more locked in and rewarding.
All addictive behaviours have several components in common. The mezolimbic pathway consisting of the ventral tegmental area and nucleus accumbens also known as the reward path. This is primarily a dopamine pathway and dopamine is all about reward. Cocaine feels so good because it delivers many hundreds of times more dopamine that is naturally available.
All of this is not good news because ( if you are an addict you know this ) it makes it difficult to change because there are both psychological and physiological aspects which can keep addicts addicts for a long time.
