Hypnosis for Treatment of Sex Addiction
Sex Addiction nowadays is as common as other forms of dependency. Hypnotherapy is one of the most efficient treatment approaches. Hypnosis is the art of temporally suspending the conscious layer of the mind to access the subconscious layer of the brain so as to alter preconceived beliefs and absorb new attitudes, views, and values. It is not an extraordinary experience, but as real as daily events we engage in such as daydreaming, fantasizing or listening to music.
Everyone can be engaged in hypnosis for as long as a person allows it. The will to agree with a particular notion and begin to imagine it over time will produce hypnotic tendencies and result. The critical factor is the openness and willingness of the individual that will make hypnosis effective to bring about visible change.
Hypnosis is not a total disconnection from the subconscious mind but a psychological link between the subconscious and the conscious mind. Hypnotic trance is a directed daydream with a particular goal that cuts you off temporarily from your immediate environment and engrossed in another reality.
Hypnosis helps to relax from tensions stress and anxiety which triggers and lead to a cycle of escapism. Escapism is the practice of keeping multiple partners. This cycle ends with a temporary release followed by a feeling of guilt and later a sense of little worth which in turn leads to a repeat of the cycle.
Hypnotic trance becomes the opening that allows an individual to accept new and positive ideas and values, free from distractions that come in the form of excuses, thoughts, and rationalization.
Lack of Self-Security Leads to Sex Addiction

On the contrary, for a child who is deprived of this holding environment while growing up tends to insecure with a feeling of anxiety and emotionally starved.
This depravity can lead to a search for a quick gratification which sexual intimacy may seem to provide but with its consequences. In a bid to create that holding environment, on a regular basis, and get rid of uncomfortable feelings, a cycle of addiction sets.
