- Gambling Therapy Session -

Hypnosis goes straight to the gambling problem…


This story started when the Australian Hypnotherapists’ Association organised a workshop on Gambling on the 5th April 2009.

The one day workshop commenced at 9.00am with a most informative talk called ‘Beyond Smoke and Mirrors – The Therapeutic Treatment of Problem Gamblers by Psychologist, Philip Hilder’.


It was after this that I conducted a practical hypnotherapy session demonstration with a problem gambler. The session was to include the up front questioning, counselling and hypnotherapy,  as well as showing the workshop participants how one could use the techniques of Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Traumatic Incident Reduction (TIR) in the trance state.  This is the case study of that session.  Names have been changed for confidentiality and permission has been given by the client to relate his story.

The client, who I'll call "Peter", phoned the AHA Free Advisory Line to see if he could find some help with his gambling problem.
