Drug dependency

Perhaps now is the time to take that first step...

Hypnosis and Mindfulness for the treatment of drug misuse

Habitual drug use can take many forms. Whether that’s it’s illegal recreational drugs , or prescribed medication - the outcomes can be equally problematic, and in many cases devastating.

The reality is of course that alcohol is just one of a number of potentially dangerous recreational drugs, the use of which can quickly turn from social use, to daily use , and in some cases to antisocial use.

In recent times, Prescription drug miss-use has been making the headlines, with more and more people becoming inadvertently addicted to opioid pain killers , antidepressants, sedatives and stimulants.

So even though the path to addiction is quite different, the negative effects on the human body and mind will be similar.

By the same token, the treatment for both prescription and illegal drug use/miss-use can follow a similar route to self empowerment.

As with so many things, people will often wait until the situation has become critical before finally making the decision to seek help.

Of course it is never to late to seek help, and help is available. 

Both Mindfulness and Hypnosis have the power to effectively alter the neurophysiological networks capable of rewiring certain patterns and conditioning.

What this means is that a person’s feelings and behaviours continue to be influenced even after they have come out of a hypnotic trance, or have completed a particular Mindfulness meditation practice.
So, this is very much a practical method of treatment that offers the client an easy to follow program of therapy, a program that can be implemented from the very first session.

Once you have made the decision to seek treatment, you can relax in the knowledge that here you will be treated as an individual, in a way that offers a practical and non judgemental approach to moving past your addiction, whatever it may be, and to start replacing bad habits with good ones.

What our Clients Say


My alcohol consumption had been on a steady rise throughout the lockdowns and working from home just gave me an excuse to drink whenever I felt like it. I knew it wasnt doing me any good and I just wanted to get healthy again.

Joel provided me with the help needed. I did six sessions of Hypnotherapy mixed with Mindful meditation. I enjoyed the sessions and found I looked forward to them.

Joel explained everything in a down to earth way and it just immediately made sense to me. I havent touched alcohol now for over three months and I feel so much better for it. It was much easier than I had ever imagined it could be.

Many thanks Joel


I decided to try hypnotherapy to reinforce my decision to stop drinking alcohol. Its has proved to be extremely effective and I am thrilled with the results. Joel is a great listener and has gone over and above the level of service I could ever have hoped for. I highly recommend giving hypnotherapy with Joel a try, its made a positive impact on my life, I only wish I had gone to him sooner.

Had a number of sessions with Joel Cantor regarding anxiety and alcohol. As well as being hypnotised, I was given a number of mindfulness techniques which have helped me which have proved to be life changing.
