Beliefs, Rules for Living & Behaviours

Problems such as Gambling Addiction, tend to be the result of ‘unhelpful’ or ‘limiting beliefs‘ that may seem difficult to solve by focusing on the symptoms alone.

A more useful model for thinking about psychological problems is shown below. In this model we can see that ‘Actions’ (what we actually do – or how we behave) are dictated by the underlying set of ‘strategies’ that are called ‘rules for living’. These rules for living, in turn, are determined by the more fundamental underlying ‘core beliefs & values’.

This model indicates that the most effective way of overcoming a wide range of problems is by changing the core underlying beliefs and values that create the rules and behaviours associated with the problem. In this way, the problem is dealt with using a cause & effect philosophy.

Gambling Addiction Treatment Recommendation

We have been working with Gambling ‘Addicts’ for a number of years and have found, almost exclusively, that a central theme with Gamblers is that they believe that they ‘cannot stop’ because they are ‘addicted’.

Although gamblers may believe that this is ‘true’, the fact is that it is actually a ‘limiting belief’ as people can, and do, stop all of the time. Because gambling problems are deeply rooted in this limiting belief, our experience indicates that the very best solution for gambling ‘addiction’ problems is to follow the full course of the Tranceformental CBT Programme.

Is Addiction Real?

Many scientists now question whether or not an ‘Addiction’ is a ‘real’ phenomenon created by a ‘hook’ or is actually more to do with what a person ‘believes’. Some research suggests that addiction is related to the degree of social connection that a person has or has not.
