Are you the “shop till you drop” kind of person?
Do you shop to reward yourself or when you feel stressed?
Is your shopping affecting your relationships?
If you find yourself nodding your head in agreement when you read the first question on this page, it could be a sign of something more serious. If your shopping is excessive and out of control, you may actually have a shopping addiction. Luckily, if compulsive shopping has taken over your life and has drained your bank account, there is a solution that will set your mind at ease; hypnosis.
Walking into a store and having the ability to look at merchandise and not feel obligated to make a purchase.
Looking at your bank statement and feeling proud of yourself for sticking to your budget.
Having the freedom to make a purchase when you need to and knowing you are in complete control of your spending.
Many people use hypnosis as a means to rid themselves of damaging habits and behaviors. Addictions such as gambling or drug and alcohol addictions have successfully been alleviated with the help of hypnosis. Shopping addictions are very similar to other addictions in the sense that the person gets a sense of thrill or excitement when they engage in a particular behavior.
Shopping addictions may start out innocently enough. Maybe you purchase a pair of shoes you really like but don’t really need. Then things slowly snowball to the point where you find yourself hiding items you have purchased in order to not have to deal with your feelings of guilt. Maybe your loved ones have become resentful of the fact that you have chosen to spend your time shopping rather than with them. And finally, you find yourself making purchases that you clearly cannot afford and digging yourself deeper and deeper into debt.
Our Hypnosis for Shopping Addictions program will give you the power to take a step back and assess your shopping habits. Next, we’ll help you come up with a new plan of action for when those shopping temptations strike. You will be taught how to think about shopping in a different light. And lastly, we will give you instructions on how to use self-hypnosis at home to continue your progress.
First and foremost, there is a whole lot more at risk than just your bank account when you fall victim to compulsive shopping. This addiction can cause serious problems, like:
- Guilt over your purchases, even to the point of hiding them when you get home
- Strained relationships, either from partners who feel abandoned when you choose shopping over them, or from partners who recognize your dishonesty about how much you spend
- Shame over the fact that you know your shopping is out of control
- Making purchases you clearly can’t afford and digging yourself deeper and deeper into debt
We’ve learned through extensive work with our clients that these behavioral patterns are generally due to something you have experienced in your past. Maybe when you were younger you watched as your mother went on shopping sprees after a stressful day at work or an argument with a family member. These behaviors are learned and they can be unlearned as well.
Hypnosis can help change the way you view shopping, so you see it more as a necessity of life rather than something you fall back on when you’re in a difficult situation in life…or even a celebratory situation. Through hypnosis we have the ability to remove the negative connotations surrounding shopping in your subconscious mind and replace them with more positive thoughts. With a combination of hypnosis techniques you can be well on your way to recovering from your shopping addiction in no time at all.
Shopping addictions aren’t about “strength” or “willpower”. Instead, the problem is rooted deep in your subconscious mind. That’s why hypnosis is the best shopping addiction treatment. It is the only treatment that accesses and changes your subconscious.
A Shopping Addiction Hypnosis session can retrain your mind to:
Eliminate your shopping addiction completely
Deal with Life’s Challenges in a Healthy Way
