Different Types of Holistic Therapy That Tackle Addiction
Whatever your form of addiction, you’re not alone. The decision to seek treatment can be daunting and takes a fair bit of bravery and courage. However, our holistic therapists are on hand to guide you through every step of the process. We’d recommend reaching out to therapists individually to discuss what kind of treatment would work best for you. Here’s a taster of some of the tried-and-tested holistic therapies that you can use as part of your addiction treatment plan.
Addiction counsellors are experts in the treatment of addiction. Through a series of counselling session, an addiction counsellor will treat the mind, body and spirit and gently help patients to understand their illness and its broader impact. Counsellors use a range of talking and doing therapies such as motivational interview technique, one-one-one talking therapy, group therapy and family therapy sessions.
Hypnotherapy has long been used as a natural, safe and effective way of tapping into the subconscious mind to override bad habits and rewire damaging thought processes. By gently easing you into a trance-state, a hypnotherapist will use a series of techniques to access your behaviours and habits. In this trance-like state, you will experience a deep state of relaxation, hyperfocus and increased suggestibility. Your hypnotherapist will work with you to get to the bottom of your impulses and provide ways to override the habits of using.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
Cognitive behavioural therapy, or CBT, is another popular form of talking therapy used to ease the impulses of addiction. Unlike other types of talking therapy, CBT brings together cognitive therapy (the way you think) and behavioural therapy (the things you do) to develop active exercises that transform your way of thinking, being, and doing.
Meditation and Mindfulness
Meditation and mindfulness are ancient practices that cultivate awareness, control and focus and can be incredibly effective tools in your addiction recovery. Meditation provides the mind, body and soul with a little space, clarity and relaxation, it also helps us to centre and to reconnect with who we truly are. In each session, you will begin to become more aware of who you are, what you’re doing with your life, and where you want to head in the future. It’s a space free of judgement that allows you to reflect and re-energize without fear of embarrassment or shame.
