I’ve worked with addiction since 2007. In that time I’ve seen Vancouver shift from a city with a cocaine problem to one with an opiates problem.
I got into this after one of my clients who resolved their smoking habit returned to me and asked if I could do for his coke issue what I’d done with his smoking. I said I’d look into it, and subsequently found there was a substantial amount of addictions work being done using hypnosis. I worked with the client, and their wife, and we removed the issue entirely. That was in 2007.
Their comment when last I heard from them was, “Thanks, Rob, for giving us our lives back.” That felt pretty good.
Since that time I’ve worked with hundreds of addictions client and also progressed to training others in addictions work, spanning alcohol through gambling all the way to zopiclone – with everything in between. I think I’ve worked with most addictions, both behavioral and substance.
Addictions can be extremely responsive to hypnotherapy. It’s largely based on the rapport between subject and hypnotist, and their commitment to ending the addiction.
I’ve done a great deal of work around opiates in particular and have had substantial success. If this is an area you’d like to work with me on please call me on 778 919 0197.
