Understanding Your Addiction
Kicking The Habit
Cognitive behavioral therapy is the most common form of treatment for addictions. It works on using a structured approach to tackling your video game addiction, analysing how you think and then making small incremental changes to transform them into healthier thinking patterns.
As part of our program we recommend that our users take a break from video games to experience life without them and give the addicted brain a chance to heal. We provide the most effective techniques and guidance to make this as easy as possible
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy is a branch of CBT that works on the basis of accepting the thoughts of our mind and feelings of our body. Addiction is usually accompanied by a great deal of emotional stress so learning to be at peace with our feelings reduces suffering and promotes growth in this program.
The principles of mindfulness attempt to move attention away from negative thoughts and cravings our users may be experiencing. This skill teaches us to focus on our environment, body and present moment. This will be useful during and far beyond addiction.

With therapist’s charging extortionate prices, Doctors are usually the first point of call. It’s most likely that they will be aware of this approach.
However, with appointments typically lasting 15 minutes it’s almost impossible for doctors to go over any information in detail without multiple follow-ups. With such short appointments, many people leave dejected, with a sense of “I’ve already read all of that on Google”.
We suggest showing The Mindful Gamer to your doctor and seeing what they think. We’re quite confident that they’ll approve!

ACT is a so-called “third wave” cognitive-behavioural model of psychotherapy. It uses acceptance and mindfulness strategies together with commitment and behaviour changes strategies, to increase psychological flexibility.
ACT recognises that it is our struggle against addiction that actually makes it worse. So rather than struggling to constantly fight and battle against your thoughts, feelings and emotions, like so many of you may have tried - ACT teaches you to notice, accept, and embrace these events, including the unwanted ones. Allowing you to live life once again.
