Why Hypnotherapy for Addiction/negative habits?
You may be asking yourself: Why hypnotherapy for addiction? Hypnosis is a powerful tool for addiction recovery. When in a hypnotic state, we are more receptive and open to positive suggestions and have direct access to our subconscious programming, where all of our habits, feelings, emotions, and responses are stored.
Do you find yourself knowing exactly what you want to do or feel, but you can’t seem to make it happen? Consciously, you may know what you want unfortunately, your subconscious mind is that hidden part of the mind where all your habits, thoughts, beliefs, feelings, and emotions live. This part of the mind is the equivalent of a hard drive. It is where all of your programs (your experiences, your view of the world, your beliefs) are stored. While in this deeply relaxed state that we call hypnosis, we change any negative programs that are not serving you well and replace them with ones detailing exactly what you want, what is good for you.
The reason we do this is that the subconscious mind will keep doing the same thing over and over again until it is retrained. This is why we continue that same behavior over and over despite negative consequences. Hypnosis changes that by giving you the power to have direct access to your subconscious mind to start behaving in a new positive healthy way naturally by reprogramming your mind with those things that are going to make you happy and whole. This is, in a nutshell, is why hypnotherapy for addiction is so successful. Try a so you can experience the profound impact of Hypnosis. Contact Leanna Lapidus to book a FREE Consultation
Does It Work?
American Health Magazine compared psychoanalysis, behavioral therapy, and hypnosis. The findings were that a whopping 93% of people recovered after only 6 hypnosis sessions, while behavioral therapy worked for 72% after 22 sessions. Lastly, there was a 38% recovery rate for those who underwent 600 sessions of psychoanalysis.
Leanna came highly recommended to me from a friend for my smoking addiction. I was a skeptic and said, believe in that, but why not give it a try? Everything else failed. I went for 3 sessions and one day I realized. I have not smoked in 3 weeks and that was 3 months ago. Still not smoking.
Thanks, Leanna. Christopher
When Will I Notice the Results?
Amazingly, most people notice improvements after their first session! Remember, hypnosis is a very profound tool. Change can happen very fast.
Hypnosis is akin to planting seeds in fertile soil, with the seeds being all of the positive suggestions that we plant during our session. Some seeds will begin to sprout during your first hypnosis session. Others, an hour later. Others, in two or three hours, a week, two weeks, etc.
How Many Sessions Will I Need?
With hypnotherapy for addiction, it depends on what you are coming in for, and your mindset. For example, there are some who will stop smoking in one session. Others in two. A person who has undergone a lot of childhood trauma should come in for at least a few sessions, especially since there are different trauma components that need to be dealt with.
Most clients report feeling progressively better â€” more positive and optimistic â€” as they continue letting go of what does not benefit them for what they really want in life. My goal is to get you to where you want to be as quickly as possible, and hypnosis is the most effective and efficient way of doing that
How Can Hypnosis Help Addiction Recovery?
Hypnosis is a powerful tool that helps you create changes in your life in a short time. Although drug and alcohol addiction is generally more complex than quitting smoking, hypnosis can help you in a number of ways. You can desensitize triggers, reduce cravings, as well as managing underlying emotional distress, trauma, and depression.
Addiction can be very deeply ingrained: it forms part of the picture you hold of yourself, becoming part of your identity. Hypnosis is a way of reaching and changing these underlying pictures. Hypnosis can make you feel better without drugs and reduce the effects of withdrawal and in time, creating a sense of wholeness.
In your hypnotherapy sessions, I will tap into any feelings of anger, fear, anxiety, sadness, or pain that you may have. This enables you to recall the first time you had these emotions, and see where they are coming from. By going back to the source of these feelings, you will be able to recognize and express them with great clarity, thus releasing the pain.
After several hypnotherapy sessions, you will most likely experience less tension, more refreshing sleep, and improved memory. I will work with you to produce better mental responses, reduce cravings, improve self-control, and increase self-esteem.
As your hypnotherapy sessions progress, you will experience naturally enhanced productivity, dedication, and self-respect.

You must understand it starts with you getting the proper help and guidance. I have lived what you are living now and be the observer of addiction in my family all of my life. I understand the depth of your sadness and hopelessness and all the other terrifying feelings that come with your experience. You may feel abandoned, neglected, shame, guilt, grief, and loneliness. Through my personal suffering and struggles with addicts, I had to heal myself first, then I was able to help guide and heal my loved ones.
For the last 7 years, I have been counseling in a Drug and Alcohol recovery treatment detox center and out-patient program for recovering addicts, as a Clinical Hypnotherapist, Life Purpose Coach and group facilitator. I’ve been blessed to have an inside look at individuals struggling with addiction, and feel honored to be a part of their transformation, working closely with recovering addicts I hear what they are missing in their lives, what they need, what they are not getting from their loved ones and how much emotional pain they are in themselves. I have found a way out and I want you to have a way out too. I take the approach of self-awareness, self-healing, and owning your truth.
Through the powerful tool of Hypnosis and coaching, I will teach you how to heal yourself and your loved ones. You will learn how and why you do the things that you do, how and why you feel what you feel. Finally, you will learn how to gain control of your thoughts, feelings, and emotions, and take proper action to create a life of inner peace, joy, and happiness. These new skills will allow you to lovingly nurture and comfort your loved ones. After learning all of this your life will never be the same, you will no longer feel bad for yourself, you will stop punishing yourself and end self-sabotage, and instead, you will create a life of fulfillment and freedom.
Are you ready to change your life forever? Are you ready to watch your loved ones get help and put their addiction to rest?

I learned more from you than my Psychotherapist of 8 years+
Dear Leanna, After I received the Hypnotherapy with you my whole thinking, mindset, demeanor and behavior has changed immensely. I feel that your sessions were the most helpful & I learned more from you in those few sessions than I have in 8+ years with my Psychotherapist!!!! My gratitude for relieving me of the fear that figuratively had paralyzed me for years including my relationships & my ability to embrace all that life has to offer!!! I will never be the same after receiving hypnotherapy from you
You are amazing at what you do:
Leanna lessened my anxiety an enormous amount
I found Leanna online and am so grateful I did. After my initial session, I continued seeing her for another 6 sessions or so because that’s all I felt I needed (I love that hypnotherapy is generally short-term as opposed to psychotherapy which can drag on forever). Leanna lessened my anxiety an enormous amount and taught me ways I can help myself, both preventatively and when I’m actually in distress. I have a new perspective on life thanks to her. Please go to her…
Heal from a traumatic childhood
Leanna’s great. I’ve gone to her for hypnotherapy and she helped me heal from a traumatic childhood and start moving forward with my life. This book sums up her philosophy concisely. I like that the same concepts are not repeated over and over (as in many books to fill space and add length) which makes it an easy read and easy to go back afterwards to read up on bits that you want to refresh on. I also highly recommend going to Leanna if you’re ever in Los Angeles…
The effect was immediate and very real
Leanna, I wanted you to know how grateful I am for the tools you have given me after these first few sessions. Learned a little bit about Neuro Linguistic Programming but was never able to practice and apply in the in which you applied it when we met. The moment I had the other day was somewhat traumatic for me and I was actually quite surprised that you could alter the situation to the extent that although I am aware that it still happened, I view it differently in mind now;…
Taught me new ways of thinking
I have been seeing Leanna for a little over a month. In this time, she has shown me tools and taught me new ways of thinking to overcome my social anxiety. I use these tools every day and see a big improvement in only one month. Leanna speaks to me on a level that I can understand and relate to. I would highly recommend going to her.
Leanna helped me so much
Leanna helped me so much with learning to stay in the present moment and face my anxiety. She is a great guide and is awesome at what she does. Thanks, Leanna.
Thank you for the love
Leanna, Thank you so much for all the valuable lessons and insight you have given to me. I valued our time much more then words can express. I am continuing to learn to treat others as well as my self with great love and kindness. I feel I have reconnected with my true self through the work we did together. You helped me see a light within that I didn’t know existed. Thank you for the love, kindness, insight and wisdom and teaching me to follow my inner voice. I am eternally grateful.
Still not smoking… Still not smoking…
Leanna came highly recommended to me from a friend for my smoking addiction. I was a skeptic and said, “Oh I don’t believe in that, but why not give it a try? Everything else failed.” I went for 3 sessions and one day I realized. I have not smoked in 3 weeks and that was 3 months ago. Still not smoking… Thanks, Leanna.
I am really glad I found Leanna
I am really glad I found Leanna on Yelp. For the past years, I have been suffering from anxiety and fear of not doing things the right way. I decided to get counseling from Leanna last week, because I needed to prepare for an important panel interview with 10 executives from an important company and I needed to be focused, relaxed, and calm. After the first session, I felt confident to walk into that board meeting. I really enjoyed the first session. She listened to my issues…
