Hypnosis for Repetitive Habits

A settled or regular tendency or practice, especially one that is hard to give up.

Human beings are creatures of habit.


From a very early age we learn behaviors that serve our needs and then we repeat those behaviors whenever the needs arise, developing habits. The subconscious mind, where habits form and reside, accepts the known and fears the unknown. Habits are maintained because they are familiar ways of behaving with expected consequences that serve needs.

Exploring Habits

Neuroscientists have traced our habit-making behaviors to a part of the brain called the basal ganglia, which also plays a key role in the development of emotions, memories and pattern recognition. Decisions, meanwhile, are made in a different part of the brain called the prefrontal cortex.


As soon as a behavior becomes automatic, the decision-making part of your brain goes into a sleep mode of sorts.

It can be challenging to work to break down your body's automatic reflexes and stop repetitive habits.


Hypnotherapy can help you replace bad habits with new self-affirming behavior.
