Antoine Matarasso together with Glen Duffy, therapists at Brisbane Hypnosis Clinic developed the Taking Control program 15 years ago in response to clients need to moderate their alcohol consumption. Taking Control, a pioneering program in the hypnotherapy field in Australia is seen as one the most consistently successful program of its kind in Australia and Antoine has trained hypnotherapists and psychologists around the country in the program’s unique techniques.

What sort of person is the Taking Control program designed to help?

Most clients who come to the clinic are everyday people just like you who feel that over time their drinking may be slowly getting out of their control. Our clients are not alcoholic in the traditional sense of the word, they just realise that simply out of habit they are drinking too much. Why does this happen to some people and not to others? For some clients it’s simply a habit, for others drinking is a way of managing their stress, anxieties or the ever increasing general pressures of their day to day lives.

In some ways then many clients are effectively ‘self-medicating’ using alcohol to do so without even realising it. In the short term this may seem useful and even effective, however in the longer term like any ‘medication’ there are unforeseen side-effects and complications. Some of these include:

  • Decreased effectiveness at work
  • Irritability
  • Disturbed or un-refreshing sleep
  • Unwanted weight gain; and
  • increasing dependence on using more alcohol, more often.

This can have a detrimental effect on work performance, family and relationships in general.

Are you drinking too much?

In Australian culture, alcohol often accompanies socialising and celebration and many Australians enjoy drinking alcohol in moderation from time to time. However, Australia has one of the highest rates of drinking among young people worldwide. 45% of risky and/or high risk alcohol consumption takes place amongst 18-25 year old drinkers. “High-risk” drinking behaviours such as this can result in negative physical, mental and social consequences.

A more common form of alcohol misuse in Australia is the daily consumption of alcohol. Many clients who undertake our Taking Control drinking program do so because they drink on a daily basis and are concerned of the effect that continued alcohol consumption may have on their health and their social and professional lives. In effect, they sense a lack of control over their drinking and this may be due to emotional issues, stress or simply habitual behaviour.
