Will has over 30 years of experience in helping clients create positive change and overcome addictions. He regularly presents keynote speeches and workshops at hypnosis conferences, conventions, and business events on topics related to NLP, hypnosis, performance enhancement, and the art of business communications.

Will joins me today to share how he helps clients overcome addictions through hypnosis and NLP. He shares his personal story with alcohol addiction, how he used hypnosis to overcome it, and how it inspired him to help others. We discuss the root causes of substance abuse and how addiction to drugs or alcohol differs from casual, social use. We discuss how your genetic makeup and predispositions impact your ability to easily overcome an addiction. He also shares NLP and hypnosis strategies he uses to help his clients overcome addiction and the role that stress and your emotional state play on the possibility of relapsing.
