Reduce Alcohol Consumption

I have had an increase in enquiries from people looking to moderate their alcohol consumption because they are worried of the potential damage to their health, the impact on their weight, the strain that they could be putting on their job or relationships and weary of feeling sluggish the morning after.

 

So to meet demand I have designed a 3 session program which is designed to help my clients reduce their alcohol consumption gradually and in easy sessions. It is designed so that clients are still able to enjoy drinking at social occasions, but keep it within limits.  The program is designed to help my clients break free of the habitual nature of drinking and take back control.

Long-term health risks

Over time, excessive alcohol consumption can lead to the development of chronic diseases and other serious issues including:

  • High blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, liver disease and digestive problems.

  • Cancer of the breast, mouth, throat, esophagus, liver and colon.

  • Learning and memory problems, including dementia.

  • Mental Health problems, including depression and anxiety.

  • Social problems, including lost productivity, family issues and unemployment

  • Disturbed sleep

  • Alcohol dependence, or alcoholism.

Signposts to problems with alcohol consumption

It is not unusual for people to reach for an alcoholic drink out of habit or as a way to relax at the end of a long day.

However, if any of the following are answered 'yes', it may be that alcohol is becoming a problem.

  • Drinking getting out of control?

  • Drinking too much alcohol?

  • Spending too much money on alcohol?

  • Boredom drinking?

  • Stress relief drinking?

  • Weight gain from over drinking?

  • Alcohol is affecting your relationships?

  • Binge drinking?

  • Drinking alcohol on your own?

  • Thinking that only a few drinks per week is unrealistic?

  • Have an overwhelming need for alcohol?

  • Waking in the middle of the night due to alcohol?

  • Using alcohol to get to sleep?

  • Determined on a Monday to drink less this week?

  • Feeling hung-over and groggy is spoiling your weekend?

  • Can't remember much of the night before?

  • Ashamed of your behaviour?

  • Offended people whilst you were drunk?

  • Aggressive or angry when you drink?

  • Your children are unhappy with your alcohol drinking?

  • Worried about your long term health?

Some people increase alcohol consumption as a way of coping and can be a symptom of someone trying to make themselves feel better. 

 

Over time, this short term 'crutch' can end up becoming a long term emotional habit. 

 

But the good news is that an emotional habit can be unlearnt, with my help, so that alcohol intake can be reduced to a more moderate and acceptable level.
