You can tell we have officially started the summer holidays here in the UK, as the streets are so much quieter in the suburbs of London; however, Central London is absolutely heaving with tourists!
During this time I see a lot of clients who fly in from all over the world for many different reasons, from anxiety, stress to drinking less alcohol. Although I treat just as many people over Skype, Face Time and the phone too.
There are two camps of thinking about drinking whilst the weather is warmer. The first camp is ‘I want to deal with my drinking issue now as I don’t want to start September feeling awful about myself.’ The second camp is, ‘I’ll wait for the summer to be over before I think about learning to drink less.’
Either strategy is fine of course; however, those who do decide to learn how to drink less now, during this summer time, tell me some amazing stories.
One client has just come back from a week in Italy. She said for the first time in her life she drank ‘guilt free’ which meant she wasn’t beating herself up and the net effect?…..she didn’t feel the need to over-drink because she was calmer and actually enjoying herself more.
I can’t tell you how many clients beat themselves up over their drinking during their holiday time and cause themselves so much grief over the whole drinking drama. They spoil their holiday time and some clients say that they don’t know why they bother because it ends up being the holiday from hell.
I ask my clients why would you want to do that to yourself when you could embrace this opportunity from a very different perspective?
So, those who are thinking about their holiday time with anxiety and fear about drinking too much and spoiling it with unhelpful thinking, logon to the program and try the first day for free. Remember there is a 60-day money back guarantee, so if you really don’t think my approach is for you, then you have nothing to lose.
