An addiction is said to be an unhealthy dependence on a substance such as alcohol or drugs such as cocaine although people miss the fact that our thoughts also can become addictive. Negative thinking can be as addictive as any drug and can pull us down.
Mastering our thoughts and emotions can set us free from our addictions whether its to cocaine, gambling, eating certain foods, exercise, using the internet and even shopping.
A ‘map’ is never the place itself as it would need to be the same size. It can only ever be a representation of a place.
NLP uses the idea of the map to show how we can only ever view through our own lens our representations of the world, or rather re-presentations and not the actual world itself.
Our differing internal worlds
Although we all live in the same world, we all have our own unique view and perception of it. Even twins will have different internal maps, as although they share the same genes and upbringing, their filters and experiences will be different.
Two people witnessing the same event will encode things differently as viewed from different angles their interpretation will not be the same.
Whether we know it or not, every thing that happens in our lives has the power to impact on the future , through moulding our future beliefs, our behaviours, and the decisions we make.
How our maps are formed
Every day our experiences shape the boundaries and territories of our maps, from a young age we learn that there are really only so many ways to open a door.
Handles go up, down, turn ect and once learned it gets stored in the unconscious mind so that we don’t have to re-learn each time we come to a new door. Beliefs about all sorts of things also get laid down as if they are facts and every day we live within those boundaries and territories.
NLP helps us with the understanding that we all see a different version of the world as if we are wearing blinkers which guide our focus to stay in alignment with our beliefs.
NLP can help us to learn about our own maps as well as others and helps us to ‘upgrade’ them if necessary.

If you want to be happy then there are strategies to become more happier says Birmingham based hypnotherapist and NLP Trainer Debbie Williams
“People with high happiness set-points are human just like the rest of us. They don’t have special powers, an extra heart or X-ray vision. They just have different habits.”- Marci Shimoff, ‘Happy for No Reason, 7 steps to being happy from the inside out.’
Simple happiness strategy number 1
Fitting five minutes into our daily lives to think about what is going well is a simple habit that can make a huge difference to our well-being.
American psychologists Robert Emmons and Michael McCullough conducted a research study which supported this statement.
They asked one group of participants to keep a journal of things that they were grateful for, while other groups were asked to write about neutral subjects or their daily hassles.
Ten weeks later, those who kept a journal of positive things tended to: exercise more, report fewer physical problems, show more optimism towards the upcoming week, and generally feel better about their lives.
Furthermore, they were more likely to offer emotional support or practical help to someone in need, while also being more enthusiastic, determined and energetic in achieving their own significant goals.
The findings of this research study aren’t surprising: taking time to appreciate one’s fortunes is the complete opposite of replaying negative thoughts, which puts one at a greater risk of depression. Thus this research reminds us of the importance of not only decreasing negative thoughts, but also increasing the positive.
How can I be happier?
So to achieve a happier healthier mind, at any point in the day where I have five spare minutes, I could sit down and look back over the day, remembering positive things that occurred as I do so.
For example, when my son ( Debbie Williams) was so proud to be praised for using his knife and fork he exclaimed “Forky! Forky! Forky!” which made me laugh so hard I had tears streaming down my face.
Focus on the positives
By focusing on positive events, you can experience the happiness associated with it, and feeling happier gives you a greater chance of being productive and willing to challenges. This is a straightforward exercise that can be done at any point during the day, and can instantly improve your mood.

Many go into rehab for cocaine addiction to overcome their habit to coke believing it is the only option available for them. There is an alternative which can be quicker, cheaper and many times more effective than rehab in Birmingham West Midlands.
Call 0121 241 0728 to find out more …or watch below videos from former coke addicts
Most rehabs for cocaine addiction have three main phases they go through to help get you of cocaine. This can take quite a long time and be expensive and not always effective.
Alternative to rehab for cocaine addiction
Luckily there is an alternative which helps with cravings and can virtually eliminate withdrawal symptoms as well as making it easier to stop and never go back to cocaine.
Birmingham based addictions expert Debbie Williams who is also a hypnotherapist and NLP trainer has developed a unique way to quickly get people of cocaine, releasing desires for it and ensuring you never want to go back to taking it.
Lets Compare Rehab to Cocaine Addictions Expert’s Way
Cocaine Rehab Treatment Version Phase One;
Doing a detox and going through unpleasant withdrawal symptoms of potentially an almost immediate “crash” followed by an overwhelming desire and cravings for more cocaine. Other symptoms can be anxiety, depression, extreme tiredness, nightmares and paranoia.
Birmingham NLP and Hypnotherapy Version Phase One;
Session for 2 hours at Birmingham clinic where you leave feeling on top of the world . You will come in with a measure of how much a problem coke is to you ( normally on a scale of 1-100 it’s in the 90′s or 100% ) we get it down to under 30 many times to 0. (Hear Kirk talking about that in the video below).
We build a belief at the unconscious level that you can succeed.
We install a mastermind group to help get that. ” craving voice’ out of your head before it can hurt you. ( Hear Nick talk about that in his video below )
This mastermind group is unique to you, many clients have people like Richard Branson and the dragons from dragons den and other benefits for clients are they get very entrepreneurial and start creating a compelling future for themselves.
We link the negative end result of what coke does overtime to the thought of it being good. This messes up the desire as we connect the dots of how it feels overtime to the desire of wanting some, this makes it harder for the urge to motivate you to want some as you are able to see, hear and feel the truth that it really isn’t doing it for you anymore. ( Hear Wayne talk about that in his video below )
We plant hypnotic suggestions that you will feel fantastic, many times no withdrawal symptoms at all. (Hear Nick saying how great he felt in his video below)
We teach you many strategies to deal with urges ( if they come)
We plan an easy simple way of adding more alkalising foods to your diet for the next month as coke is an acid addiction and the more we alkalise the less likely you will have any cravings .
Rehab For Cocaine Addiction Phase Two;
Aim to achieve physical and mental stabilisation after coke withdrawal. Their belief is that PAWS ( post acute withdrawal syndrome) like depression can last for months. Prescriptions for anti depressants and anxiety medication may be used.
Birmingham NLP And Hypnotherapy For Cocaine Phase Two;
This session is only one hour
70% clients have not had any cocaine and feel fantastic, no side effects apart from more energy and feeling like a black cloud has lifted and they can see a bright future.
They’ve listened to the self help hypnosis recording regularly and it helps them relax and reduce their stress.
25% clients have tried some coke on more time in between the session and 95% of those get so mad with themselves it fuels the desire to definitely want to stop. It gives them a wake up moment where they really feel the coke is not living up to the hype or the effects of when they first took it.
We reinforce the good work often repeating much of what we did in the first session and of they go for a month.
Cocaine Rehab Treatment Phase Three;
Psychological or psychiatric help to try to deal with past issues that may have driven you to abuse coke, working through incidents of trauma plus help to cope with any lingering withdrawal symptoms.
Psychotherapists may help you also help you identify and avoid triggers for use.
(you may still be taking cocaine by the way having relapsed)
Birmingham Cocaine Abuse Clinic Phase Three;
Session 30-60 minutes to lock in all the positive changes. We’ve already dealt with triggers in session one and two and you feel that coke is something you used to do.
Rather than going to the past to look for deep and hidden meanings for your coke abuse we’ve already made your conscious and unconscious mind see the movie of how it feels overtime so that you just don’t want it at all.
Three sessions are standard and work with approx 80% success rate 15% may need up to 5 or 6 sessions and for 5 % it doesn’t work at all ( usually the ones who are coming to please a partner or their work )

Havening is a fairly new technique developed by Ronald Ruden which Paul McKenna uses and likes to share with audiences on his courses.
Debbie Williams learned from Paul after watching him the last couple of years, having seen him working with and teaching 1000′s of people this technique.
Havening is a developing field which has borrowed bits from TFT and EMDR
It is continually evolving whilst being backed up by science and tested on how we think our mind’s work, store and release trauma.
Birmingham hypnotherapist and NLP trainer Debbie Williams helped both Paul McKenna and Dr Richard Bandler on over 50 NLP and Hypnosis Courses since approx 1995 whilst being a member of the team and being his personal assistant.
Paul has referred many, many clients to Debbie’s Birmingham clinic over the years, including some of his friends.
Debbie’s client in the video above was referred to her. She used havening to help Alf’s hands from shaking uncontrollably when he was sent to the Birmingham clinic after his cardio vascular nurse was advised NLP may help him to get over his 60 year phobia of needles and hospitals.
Havening reduces Alf’s fear
Havening really played a big part in helping Alf to reduce his massive phobia of hospitals, doctors, needles and any medical procedures.
Alf’s phobia had been so powerful that he would take his own teeth out with pliers rather than visit a dentist.
Haveneing helped Alf to be calm for his op
Alf had an aneurysm which needed operating on asap as it could burst at any moment. If that happened and he couldn’t get to hospital within 3 minutes he would die.
So overcoming this 60 year phobia was necessary for the operation to go ahead.
60 year phobia gone
Alfs phobia was installed from childhood when he had to have lumber punctures in his spine and was forcibly held down as any movement may cause tragic results.
That coupled with insensitive and sometimes cruel nurses and doctors who lacked compassion towards him led to this life long phobia of needles.
Havening strategies to help
Birmingham NLP trainer and hypnotherapist Debbie Williams typed out the havening strategy from her notes after watching Paul Mckenna teaching it.
She then cross reverenced it with what he does in his DVD on havening at the back of his gastric band book which he told Debbie had the havening technique on it.
You can buy his book in most UK bookstores or on amazon. If you wanted someone competent in havening if you wished to experience it there are now practitioner trainings in Havening available and practitioners about.
Debbie also studied Ronald Rudens DVDs from trainings on havening and then tested with Alf by doing different versions of havening procedures on him.
She gave Alf’s wife copies of what she had typed out for them to practice every time Alf felt anxious about his operation which they did regularly.
He has had his operation now and is well on the road to recovery. It has been a real team effort of the wonderful hospital staff who cared for him, his nurse and her team as well as hypnosis, NLP and havening.
Measuring success with havening
With havening (also many NLP that Debbie uses ) you measure the ”issue” on a scale 1-10 with 10 being the top of the scale, you then can see it dropping after each round so you get immediate feedback.
Alf was amazed of how his hands stopped shaking within 3 rounds. It went from 10 to 4 to 2 to 0.

I have had this problem since I was a teenager and Im now 30. Whenever I talk to someone, while Im listening to what they are saying, I get severe facial spasms.
My cheeks and side of my mouth keep twitching involuntarily. This has destroyed my life, I used to be a happy person, being social but ever since this started I am afraid to interact with anyone. I am sick of it and to be honest I dont think I want to live my life like this.
I know nothing about hypnosis but I just read that it might help with this, is it true? Thank you for your time.
Reply From Birmingham Hypnotherapist
Yes I can help you, I often get asked ‘Can hypnosis show me how to stop facial spasms or tics?
My answer is firstly check with your GP to see if there are any treatable causes for this then I answer;
I couldn’t say that we would be able to eliminate the facial spasm or facial tic completely, but I know we will be able to reduce the symptoms and stop it happening so often.
We can also reduce the anxiety so that when it does go into spasm you are not so affected or upset by it.
Your spasms have habituated
The facial spasms or tics can become a habit and your brain is expecting it to occur. You think ‘’I hope it doesn’t happen when I meet so and so… (before an event) Your mind then sees a movie of your face going into spasm and you dread going or find a way to avoid going out completely.
As it now makes you feel bad in advance and this negative spiral reduces your confidence and self esteem and takes any joy out of life.
Hypnosis and NLP can help with spasms
Hypnosis and NLP together will be much more powerful to help reducing the symptoms of facial spasms and tics.
Hypnosis on its own may help or not depending on the experience of the hypnotherapist. It should definitely help with the stress part of the problem.
The NLP ( I’m a Master Practitioner and Trainer as well as a Hypnotherapist) is a system of being able to re- programme your mind for solutions and adjusting thinking patterns to be more resourceful.
it can take the ‘sting’ out of a negative emotion/feeling so that you feel empowered again and care much less if your face does spasm.
That along with everything else we do will stop it happening all the time and allow it to fade out as you move on with your life.
Previous clients with facial spasms/ tics
This is what has happened with many other clients of mine.
The spasms or facial tics reduce or go completely overtime only coming back in a much lesser degree when they are stressed about something, which becomes a useful message for them to think ‘what do I need to do to deal with this situation” and as they do that if goes away again.
Where you are at the moment is constantly thinking about ‘your problem’ and facial spasms or tics and your brain cannot process negation and by that I mean, try not to think of the colour blue.
Focusing on what you want
Blue appears there in your mind. This is what you have been doing with the facial spasms.
ie I hope my face doesn’t go into spasms when i….
And your brain sees what you are focusing on
NLP can stop that and hypnosis can help re-build a better prediction for the future. A bit like when I’ve worked with athletes we focus on the internal movie of them winning with no room for the movie of what they don’t want.
What I do is much more specific, detailed and more powerful than Ive explained here but Ive tried to put it in a way that will make sense to you.
Birmingham hypnotherapy costs
I charge £145 for a session and it will take 2-3 sessions to really move things forward. (you will feel more positive even after the first session) And the sessions can be spread over 2-3 months if needed.
