It is a large part of my work which I enjoy immensely.   Seeing people make a change that they may have been struggling with for some years is very rewarding especially when it is a change that could in fact save their life. Hypnotherapy for stopping smoking is a safe, quick and comfortable way to become free from the habit. Hypnosis is the most effective way of giving up smoking according to the largest ever scientific comparison of ways of breaking the habit as cited in The New Scientist (Vol.136 Oct 92) which compared the results of more than 600 studies. During hypnotherapy for stopping smoking sessions we will look in detail at your habit patterns, previous attempts at stopping, your motivations for becoming a non-smoker and also any particular fears about stopping you may have, for example putting on weight. Using this information I tailor the stop smoking hypnotherapy session to address these factors and after this first session you will stop smoking. However, unlike many other practitioners the treatment doesn’t stop here. Although you will have stopped smoking we really need to ensure that this is a permanent change and one that feels comfortable and natural. Throughout the next week I will be available for telephone support if you feel you should require it. The second session means that we can discuss how you felt throughout the week perhaps around other people who smoke and in those situations where you used to smoke. We need to ensure that you have no cravings or uncomfortable feelings. If there have been any this second session means we can work on those and remove them and also reinforce the work we have done in session one to make sure that you are a happy and relaxed non-smoker for good.
