Treating Gambling Addiction
Compulsive gambling is the uncontrollable urge to continue gambling despite the toll it takes on your life. If you’re prone to compulsive gambling, you may continually chase bets, lie or hide your behavior, and resort to theft or fraud to support your addiction.
How did this happen? At some point you pushed away your rational mind and let your basic urges take control. Now you are out of control.
A Way Forward From Gambling Addiction Using Spiritual Psychology
At The Clearing, we begin by addressing the compulsive desire to gamble as a fundamental Misinterpretation of Reality. “I’m engaged in something that brings me nothing but misery but for some reason it brings me pleasure to do it.”
We’ll help you discover the root of your compulsive gambling. You’ll discover the underlying core issue is from your past; such as unconsciously overcompensating for feelings of low self-worth. The beauty of our approach is working at the core of the issue. Once discovered, we facilitate you in re-framing the way you hold the underlying core issue in your mind in order to create healthier patterns of thinking and behaving. This is transformational.
Believe it or not, this is a fairly simple process for the authentic and willing. As you ride an emotion to its beginning you recall when you first had the experience of feeling good while engaging in the behavior which now has such a clearly negative outcome. The next step is creating a working relationship with the part inside of you that makes questionable decisions.
The Basic Skills and Principles of Spiritual Psychology are taught to all Participants so they can become their own counselor. Our staff will guide you to unlock and re-frame this moment, and other related moments, in order for you to be more in control of your basic desires. As a result you will become the best counselor you have ever had!
