Addictions can differ enormously. From alcohol and drug dependence to addictions such as sex, pain, stealing, abuse, work, gambling or pornography, our hypnotherapy for addiction in Gauteng has achieved amazing results for our clients.

There are many theories on what causes addiction. Some state it is genetically determined, while at the other end of the spectrum, others argue that it is caused by purely environmental factors, like a turbulent childhood, and that we can become addicted to just about anything if it helps us to avoid painful or uncomfortable feelings or prevents us from being with our ‘self’.

We all want to live normal, healthy and happy lives, but getting off the treadmill of addiction is often not at all easy to do.


No-one actively chooses to be an addict. In fact, most people who are dependent on something to help them cope with life would do anything not to be living with their addiction.

But it’s only by understanding what has gone before that Dr John Souglides can help to resolve the issue properly, leaving you free to live your life free from the prison that addiction creates.

Addiction Hypnotherapy has been shown to make a positive contribution to ending addiction and in this relaxed and suggestible state we can help people to get a different perspective on their addictive behaviours. What normally seems impossible—quitting a substance or behaviour that is central to one's existence—can seem achievable and desirable.

I specialise in treating addictions of all types, helping you to understand and come to terms with what is driving your behaviour and supporting you in working through it.

With a clinic based in Bryanston, Johannesburg, I’d love to hear from you and tell you more about my hypnotherapy for addiction. Please get in touch with me for more information.
