Hypnotherapy to Stop Smoking
Would you like to stop smoking… for good? Well hypnotherapy is a clinical technique shown to help individuals to do just that – time and time again!
Let’s be honest – Smoking may feel good to us in the first instance, but in terms of our survival-stakes and life expectancy it is way up there with things which are undeniably life-threatening.
- There are around 4000 different chemicals in the ignited smoke of a cigarette; Nicotine, Carbon Monoxide, Tar, Hydrogen Cyanide, Ammonia & Nitrogen Dioxide are just some of them..
- Smoking is the biggest cause of death and illness in the UK. More than 120,000 people die each year from diseases caused by smoking and it is a major contributor to many serious diseases, such as heart disease and lung cancer.
It’s the same scenario over and over again, we get a bit stressed or anxious and our conditioned response is to reach for a cigarette to give us immediate results.
Stored away in our subconscious are the effects of that initial pull on a cigarette and the anxiety ease it appears to give us immediately.
However, deep down we know this is a lie and the danger stakes of smoking for ourselves and those around us are very high.
Having previously been a smoker for over 10 years myself I am pleased to report that I fall into the category of only 3% of the population to stop smoking using their will power alone!
This is my analysis:– “Get your mind set and the body will follow!”
I know and understand first-hand how hard it can be to stop smoking for good and there are some crucial factors to bare in mind when attempting to stop smoking for good.
I also respect that smoking is a highly addictive habit and should be avoided altogether in the first place – this is where hypnotherapy can help aid you to re-evaluate your beliefs about the smoking habit.
How Hypnotherapy can assist:
Hypnotherapy aims to alter our state of awareness in a way that relaxes the conscious part of the mind while simultaneously stimulating and focusing the subconscious part – where it is possible to re-evaluate our detrimental habits we have and replace them with positive and affirming suggestions for real – true progression.
Often an emotional attachment to the cigarette has been made somewhere along our path and this needs to be addressed before a person can effectively progress further.
Motivation for ceasing to smoke is essential, and it is said that any determination lower than an 8 out of 10 realistically needs to be re-evaluated.
Stop-Smoking hypnotherapy sessions come in the form of a one-off session of hypnotherapy lasting around 1.5 hours (more in some cases)
After an initial consultation has been satisfied, either via phone or email. Contact here
I seek to work with you as the individual, to bring together a programme tailored to suit your personal needs regarding the smoking habit.
We will look over several areas of; why you smoke, how it is affecting you and those around you, as well as reasons and motivations for smoking-cessation and then settle for the hypnosis which varies in length depending on personal requirements. Recommended time allowance = 1.5 hours.
