Clinical Hypnotherapist Georgia Foster has been a long sought after expert commenter on the subject of how to drink less in her home country of Australia, and in the UK where she now lives. February is "boost your self esteem month" and her angle on drinking too much is that people think self-critically and unhealthfully which leads to over-drinking, so her message has particular resonance this time of year! Here she is last January on Sky News (major London news source) talking about binge drinking and why culture’s of drinking occur: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=56nHHZV4vk8 She released her new research-based guidebook, “Drink Less in 7 Days” (Red Door Publishing, February 1, 2019) to assist a unique and often neglected audience: those who feel like they are drinking too much but who are by no means alcoholics. A specialist in the myriad of unique problem-drinking behaviors, Foster sought to create a personalized approach to cutting back alcohol consumption. By addressing the emotional roots of over-drinking behaviors, Foster can help rewire your brain to enjoy alcohol in moderation instead of using it as a crutch. In an interview Georgia discusses: The importance of focusing on our thinking (instead of our drinking) in managing alcohol consumption Her own background with emotional drinking The role an “Inner Critic” plays in our drinking habits How some former “problem drinkers” are able to manage drinking without cutting it out completely Hypnotherapy and its role in her 7-day drinking program
