Equilibrium Project Architect of Transformation and Life Success by Design Programmes
Equilibrium Project Architect of Transformation and Life Success by Design therapeutic programmes are a proven and highly effective method for the achievement of a new pathway towards a positive, healthy and successful future.
This psychological and psychosocial approach is effective due to the combination of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), along with mindfulness and cutting edge accelerated learning that is woven together with goal-setting principles into one holistic system for success.
Our Professionals understand that the first and foremost goal of treatment is to engage clients in a life-changing process that leads to lasting recovery and greater life satisfaction. In order to maintain a healthy, balanced lifestyle it is important to provide highly individualised relapse prevention treatment programmes that will be developed and honed to each client’s requirements and to have a plan in place to minimise the chance of relapse.
Equilibrium Project’s Life Success by Design Programme is an intensive programme allowing individuals to;
- Understand the Cycle of Change process.

- Identify and release locked-in patterns of trauma.
- Develop the skills required to cope with difficult and demanding situations which place the individual at risk of a return to previous behaviour which they have chosen to change.
- Facilitate change and encourage individuals to respond to change.
- Use guided imagery and visualisation for therapeutic change.
- Identify and work through limiting beliefs and paradigms.
- Cope with stress and cravings using relaxation techniques, distraction and mindfulness.
- Find real purpose, create a vision and set goals.
How Equilibrium Project helps to meet National strategy
The Five Year Forward View states that there are ‘now over 3,000 alcohol – related admissions to A&E every day’ and it tells us that ‘Out-of-hospital care needs to become a much larger part of what the NHS does’.
Alcohol Concern https://www.alcoholconcern.org.uk/alcohol-statistics summarises the impact of alcohol misuse in their alcohol statistics
In the UK, in 2015 there were 8,758 alcohol-related deaths (around 14 per 100,000 people). The mortality rates are highest among people aged 55-64. In England, there are an estimated 595,131 dependent drinkers, of whom only 108,696 are currently accessing treatment. Alcohol misuse is the biggest risk factor for death, ill-health and disability among 15-49-year-olds in the UK, and the fifth biggest risk factor across all ages. Alcohol harms are estimated to cost the NHS around £3.5 billion annually. Alcohol is a causal factor in more than 60 medical conditions, including: mouth, throat, stomach, liver and breast cancers; high blood pressure, cirrhosis of the liver; and depression In the UK in 2014-5, there were an estimated 1.1 million hospital admissions related to alcohol consumption where an alcohol-related disease, injury or condition was the primary reason for hospital admission or a secondary diagnosis. In the same period there were 339,000 admissions for conditions directly caused by alcohol. In England and Wales, 63% of all alcohol-related deaths in 2014 were caused by alcoholic liver disease. Liver disease is one of the few major causes of premature mortality that is increasing, and deaths have increased by around 40% in a decade. The number of older people between the ages of 60 and 74 admitted to hospitals in England with mental and behavioural disorders associated with alcohol use has risen by over 150% in the past ten years, while the figure for 15-59 years old has increased by 94%.
Equilibrium Project aims to provide a service that keep people out of hospital by providing alcohol treatment in the community either in the clients’ own home or as an attending day service user of our ambulatory clinic.
