Wine Addiction in Derby
Have you been looking for help with Wine Addiction in Derby ? I recently had a female client. A busy mum of a seven-and a nine-year old. Once the blur of the school run was done, she’d go to work in a local accountancy firm. After lunch she’d come home and work with her husband invoicing clients for their business. School again to pick up the kids.
Back home. An evening of supervised homework, “row refereeing” and cooking for fussy palates. A whirl of hectic demands and chores.Finally, the evening was done.
The children were in bed at last. Ahhh….. The voluptuous, velvety siren call… wine time. Unfortunately an all too familiar story.Don’t get me wrong I love a good rose, red or white myself. But it serves me (on occasion) and not the other way about.
I’ve been there myself. It’s the end of the day, time to relax. Time to crack open a bottle of red. Come on! We’re all nannied to death, aren’t we? Guidelines and directives about everything.
This client’s behavioural cause-and-effect was easy to see. Her face was bloated and felt she was less “there” for her children and husband. Felt sick all the time,harder to focus on work. Therefore fretted that other parents and co-workers could see the recent trend of her tremors and shakes, her changed appearance, her vagueness. She told me plaintively:
“It’s disgusting of me but I now feel that I only really live for that glass of wine!” But “that glass”, she confessed tearfully, often descended into two or occasionally three bottles a night.
She didn’t think her husband knew how much she drank. After all, it had started innocently enough. Just one or two glasses to wind down after the day. Her “me time”.

Covering why this behaviour has occurred, breaking up habits and using Hypnotherapy & Cognitive Behavioural techniques to support you and help change your thought processes.
This client eventually told her husband she was stopping wine drinking because it was a real problem for her. The bottles came out of hiding, she stopped lying to her husband, and she finally recovered the life she had lost.
