Psychotherapy and Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy for Habit Disorders in Central London

Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy approach, combined with Hypnotherapy and Mindfulness (becoming more self-aware), is an effective treatment program for both addictions and chronic habits.

The most common classes of Habit dealt with are:

• Nail-biting,

• Hair-pulling

• Nervous tics

• Stuttering - to name a few

These habits are often the symptoms of unexpressed anxiety, they become worse when anxiety increases and improve when the client is particularly relaxed.

My goal is for clients to become addicted to positive habits

Habit Reversal technique is an evidence-based approach and highly effective Behavioural therapy that is commonly used in the treatment of body focused repetitive behaviours. It is usually delivered in a single two-hour session with a one hour follow up session one to two weeks later to prevent relapse.

This method is still regarded by researchers as one of the most evidence-based approaches to habit-breaking in the field of psychotherapy.

“Habit reversal training for simple habits has a strong success rate, with a study of 300 subjects showing an average 90% reduction in the habit following after the 2- hour session of habit-reversal training , improving to 97% reduction in habit after one month.” — Nunn & Azrin, 1977

Habit Disorders treatment:

The protocol for Habit reversal training is made-up of five parts:

  • Developing self-awareness and self-monitoring by spotting the early warning signs to identify habit associated behaviours and situations.
  • Competitive response training: We create together a new habit as a competing response to the previous one.
  • Motivation and practice
  • Learning Hypnosis and Self-hypnosis to increase relaxation and build confidence.
  • Generalisation training and prevent Relapse.

With Habit Reversal , an empowering principle is that what has been learned can be unlearned.
