Yes, I was reluctant to sign up, I pondered over it for quite a while and quite a few beers followed by hangovers. I mean who is this Georgia Foster? I was concerned about being embarrassed at being there, will I see someone I know, will I be the only one there, will there be a line of supermarket trolleys at the door with homeless people sitting inside, people drinking from brown paper bags during the seminar, do I have to divulge my life story & state “ Hi, I’m Peter & I’m an alcoholic.....!!!
Noooooooo!!!! I can’t do this.
But, I was curious & had no one else to help, so I signed up. Well thanks to my over the top imagination none of the above happened!
The guests were everyday ordinary people from all walks of life who just like me were looking to change a bad habit. No one asked who I was, where I came from, what my job was & most importantly why did I drink (that’s private). Georgia was engaging, humorous & made all who attended feel very relaxed & comfortable.
To Georgia’s credit no one left & everyone came back after lunch so that has to say something.
Now the seminar was easy, Georgia explained why we & how we can change this habit. You kind of think she is just pointing out the obvious, stuff you know but, until you are in a room of adult people who are all nodding & chuckling in agreement do you truly realise the obvious. During the seminar Georgia relates to stories of her life & others that she has helped to overcome heavy drinking. The best part of course is the hypnosis (seems silly but do take a comfy pillow & blanket even if you fell uncomfortable doing so). Georgia explains the process of hypnosis in simple step by step instructions using stories, graphs, explaining sleep patterns & how our mind works. The hypnosis tapes Georgia provides for you after the seminar are great, very relaxing (who ever plays the piano in the background deserves an award).
Now I am not going to say that this worked for everyone as I have not met or bumped into any of the other people who were there but I know it worked for me & I am a sceptic. However if it does not I do believe Georgia will go out of her way to help you overcome your drinking issue.
