Shopping Addiction Hypnosis - Shopaholic

Shopping Addiction


On the surface this almost sounds like a made up addiction but nothing could be further from the truth. There is a certain addictive chemical in the brain called Dopamine which causes a 'high' and a sense of enjoyment whenever you shop and have a positive experience. The more you shop and feel good each time the more you become addicted to the experience and need to shop even more to feel the same level of pleasure. Often shopaholics find the love of shopping replaces some 'hole' in their lives made more noticeable when they are bored, unfulfilled or feeling in a low mood. Ironically though the sense of enjoyment is short lived and simply leads to a feeling of unconscious guilt.

So what's wrong with that? The truth is often the shopaholic just like someone who drinks to excess, gambles, is addicted to drugs or even chocolate can never feel satisfied and so will spend excessive amounts of money, which may be limited, and create mountains of debt. There is almost a hoarding mentality involved with this addiction, which untreated can lead to quite a serious problem.

Most shopaholics tend to be unaware they have a problem until they check their bank balance or credit card statement at the end of the month. With online shopping making the process of parting with your money even easier, the Being a shopaholic can lead to relationship problems, especially when the other partner is unaware of the growing problem.

Fortunately there is an affordable solution, which can offer a permanent solution to this problem. Through a varied mixture of NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) and hypnotherapy, the shopaholic can be given tools for neutralising the thrill of spending money or the behaviour of regular shopping. This process can be effective in as little as three 60 minute sessions, and certainly will only cost a fraction of what is spent through the existence of this unfortunate and yet very common and real addiction.
