How does your work addiction or Workaholism affect you?
What is driving your need to work harder and for longer hours? Does it stem from a compulsive need to achieve status and success? If this is true for you, you may also be a perfectionist and rarely entirely happy unless everything is ‘just right’.
You may be using work as an escape, to avoid going home to either face your partner and family or another concern, including loneliness.
What are the consequences of work addiction for you? You may not be sleeping or eating properly. You may talk about socialising or exercise, but in reality these often get sacrificed for work.
What are the excuses or arguments you use to justify your long hours or hard work? Maybe you feel you have to strive to climb the career ladder? Do you fear the negative reaction of your boss if you say ‘no’? If you are self-employed, do you fear financial loss or missing out on opportunities? Whatever your arguments are, the result is stress and feeling your life is out of balance.
Sometimes workaholics engage in addictive or unhealthy activities, such as overeating, drinking too much alcohol or gambling, in order to find ways to relax or feel freedom from the straitjacket of work. If you can’t easily turn off from work, then relationships, sleep and blood pressure can be affected. You may be seeking help, since those behaviours or areas of life, are concerning you now.
My approach is to view you as whole, capable and fully able to make choices. As such we will work together, helping you deal well with thoughts and feelings and reduce your overworking lifestyle or workaholic career decisions.
There can be a great deal of shame associated with any addiction. Often work addiction is about how you wish to appear in the eyes of others, be that at home or at work. It can feel a big deal to admit to yourself that something needs to change and often ‘confessing’ to a partner, loved one, friend or colleague, sounds like something simply too big to do. You may feel like you are admitting to ‘failure’.
I listen and support. I never judge anything you have done or anything you might say. Hypnosis sessions are confidential.
Living life fully and confidently
Working hard is often okay. It is when you feel a compulsion to do so, that something may need to change. You may view work as simply something to pay the bills or it is a way for you to find meaning and purpose. It is all about a healthy balance, in which you feel calm and that work has the appropriate role in your life.
We may need to look at your boundaries around time management. Do you need to implement healthy and clear boundaries around your work life, ensuring it doesn’t seep into home and leisure time?
It is time to deal better with work stress and also find alternative ways to deal with life’s ups and downs. It is also important to consider healthy ways to relax and nurture your well-being.
Parallel to reducing work addiction, I will support you, if needed, to re-discover confidence and remind yourself of all those goals you once wanted and those gifts you have to give to the world around you. Moving from dependency or addiction will signal for you a movement in a positive and optimistic direction.

Free Initial Consultation
Following your free initial phone consultation, you may be asked to keep a diary of your work habits for a few days and complete a helpful background questionnaire.
Your consultation will be by phone. It is a place for you to hear more about how I work and ask any questions, no matter how small. The call will also help you directly, focusing on your challenges. It should be a positive step for you on your road to recovering your old self. Helping you feel in control and more confident again.
And if, at the end of the consultation, you do not wish to book hypnosis sessions, that is totally fine. There is no pressure and you are under no obligation whatsoever.
