“You got to know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’em,
Know when to walk away and know when to run.
You never count your money when you’re sittin’ at the table.
There’ll be time enough for countin’ when the dealin’s done.”

When Kenny Rogers sang those words to The Gambler (oh so long ago) it was almost romanticising the life of the gambler. But in the modern era the enticement of gambling has moved into a different realm. For many, it is the furthest thing from being romantic.

Poker Machines in clubs and pubs, sports betting, horse racing, mobile apps, and on-line betting are just a few of the modes available to those who want to have a punt. But to many of us there is a heavy price to pay. Loss of family and relationships. Loss of a job or a business. Loss of independence. Loss of self-esteem. Loss of life savings. And sadly for some, gambling can lead to a loss of life.

And now the good news.

I had a client earlier this year who was spending in excess of $5000 each month on poker machines. Yes … $60,000 a year. After 3 sessions of hypnotherapy, he has his life together. The last I heard was that he was 8 weeks clear.

Another client was spending $600 a week on the horses. It was affecting his business, his family, but also affecting his peace of mind. His parting comments to me after 3 sessions of hypnotherapy was a big thank you as he is now focused on renovations at home and saving to take his family on a long awaited holiday.

If gambling is out of control in your life, or you know someone who wants to put the gambling addiction into the past, hypnosis can help. Be empowered to take control … NOW!

Call me to put the gambling problem in the past.
