Leanna Lapidus, your Clinical Hypnotherapist and Life Coach.
I specialize in addiction recovery, who’s name owns a huge misconception. People hear addiction and automatically hear drug abuse which is the most talked about form, however addiction roots much deeper than just substance. The crave comes in many forms categorized into alcohol/ drug and behavioral. What we refuse to notice is that eating disorders, OCD, sex, gambling and more are all form of addiction. Through working at Passages Drug and Alcohol Treatment Centers for over five years now, providing individual and group therapy, I’ve come to see that 99% of people delve into addictive patterns that are anxiety, worry, fear, and depression, which becomes conditioned behaviors through repetitive life experience just like any other addictions.
All of these things spur up as consequences of experience of trauma, negative self beliefs , and depression. Through Hypnotherapy for healing, lifecoaching and meditatiive visualization methods, we work deeper to find the root of such difficulty. I have been practicing these techniques professionally for 8 plus years to discover underlying methods and practices of treatment through this type of therapy, working on healing traumas and turning it around to empowered living and addiction free lifestyle. I continue to work with a range of people from high profile celebrities to stay at home moms, entrepreneurs, young adults, and provide intervention training for families and something I’ve noticed all across is that as humans we all share a craving for something better, ultimate happiness, inner peace, loving relationships and acceptance from other people.
As a child I witnessed addiction within my family, and the behaviors associated with the habit. Knowing how to handle this situation from such a young age is what later sparked my inspiration to learn the tools to treat the behaviors associated with addiction. At a young age, which was a fearful stage in my life I became a single mother of two. With both of my parents gone and no one to lean on, going through my children’s challenges with them as well and treating them as my own , I had to choose which path I would take: strength, or weakness. Years of struggling went on when I finally decided to turn my life around. Through my own path of overcoming anxiety, depression, and worries of lack of purpose I have developed techniques that have helped me and so far many others cross that bridge to a better life. Transforming my life through hypnotherapy, life coaching, meditative practices and working to develop a healthier mindset also helped me lead my children in the right direction.
In my sessions clients feel understood, supported and inspired. I provide a safe space where clients can allow themselves to be open and honest. Clients who have worked with me say that its a pleasant way to receive therapy, experiencing a profound feeling of inner peace and a deep connection with ones self. Within this open state of mind together we plant new positive suggestions into the subconscious, opening up new pathways, naturally leading to living a healthy and fun addiction free lifestyle that is right for the individual. Through repetitive reinforcement in the Hypnotherapy session ones mind starts to accept these new thoughts then eventually starts to live them. Life begins to align in a way which guides the individual to taking proper action leading to desired outcomes.
