Changing Habits

Achieving lasting lifestyle change

  • Would you like to change some of your bad habits?
  • Lose weight?
  • Give up smoking?
  • Cut down your drinking?

Make habit your friend (- with new healthier habits!)

Most people and therapies offering services in this area focus on quick, extreme change. People using these services focus all their efforts on the initial phase of change- on stopping smoking or losing the weight. The client may even achieve their goal, in this way and be delighted -for a while, at least. Unfortunately, in the vast majority of cases, despite the huge effort often involved, the change is temporary. All too soon they go back to their old ways and put all the weight back on or “fall off the wagon” and find themselves smoking or drinking as much as ever.

How to stop the “revolving door”
