I work with clients over 2 sessions as I feel a follow-up appointment is essential for really taking control of cigarettes.  The client will usually stop after the first session but the second session allows them to get the most from the hypnotherapy as there is only so much that can be done in one session. I hear how they are getting on with the new changes and teach a self-hypnosis technique on the second appointment which is a great tool to keep stress levels down in the future.  Some clients come for extra sessions to improve other areas of their life.

Hypnotherapy helps change the habits and patterns stored in your mind thus allowing you to give up the habit of smoking.   Most smokers have programmed themselves repetitively from morning until bedtime many times per day over many years.  It is no wonder that it is so difficult for people to quit smoking without thinking about it constantly.  Add to that the addictive nature of nicotine and it is easy to see the hurdle people face when letting go of cigarettes.  This is why hypnotherapy is so useful to anyone considering kicking the habit of smoking as it allows your mind to take on board new habits as a non-smoker.  Hypnotherapy dissolves cravings and urges to reach for cigarettes just like putting new software in the computer of your mind.

Hypnotherapy is a proven technique that works to help people change habits and patterns and I have helped many clients with letting go of cigarettes.

Stopping smoking is a positive life-changing experience so I like my clients to get the full benefits by releasing stress and creating a better lifestyle dealing with any issues that need addressing. Hypnotherapy also lets go of cravings allowing you to feel free and in control again.

Most smokers have invested many years and a lot of money in destroying their health.  I can only work with those who are prepared to invest some time in reversing the years of neglect. It is possible to stop smoking in an hour but I think Hypnotherapy is used in a much better way if the client gains a better understanding of their smoking habits. I use Hypnotherapy to restore confidence so clients can reach their full potential.  I give clients a hypnosis recording to listen to at home and teach follow up techniques.

How many appointments?

One to one hypnotherapy appointments are tailored to deal with individual issues to suit each clients requirements.

I like to move people on as quickly as they can safely make the changes so most people have 2-4 sessions although some have a few more. I try to keep it to a minimum, teaching the client what to do so they can get on with things themselves. 

Clients Comments:

  • "Hypnotherapy very worthwhile, if you want to give up it works." Sarah, Berkshire
  • "I haven't touched a ciggie since I saw you at the hypnotherapy session, thanks" Max, Wokingham
  • "I was worried about the cost of the hypnotherapy but I have had my money back already by not buying cigarettes.  It has made giving up painless, craving free and so easy." Fiona, Edinburgh
  • "I smoked for 25 years without even trying to give as I enjoyed smoking so much.  It was ingrained into my life and everything I did so I decided to use nicotine chewing gums to support me alongside the hypnotherapy.  It worked really well as my mind became used to the changes I found it easier to stop smoking.  After a while the chewing just sort of faded away.  The hypnotherapy gave me the will to make the change and changed my perception of the cigarettes." Jayne, Bristol
  • "Dealing with the stress of my divorce and work pressures gave me the ability to let go of the cigarettes. The hypnotherapy also helped let go of the routine of smoking." David, London

Hypnotherapy is more effective for smoking cessation than nicotine replacement therapy, one study that was run on patients who had been hospitalised for smoking-related sickness compared the effects of Hypnotherapy with Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) to help with smoking cessation. The results show that Hypnotherapy was more effective than NRT and patients were more likely to become non-smokers after 12 weeks and 26 weeks of hospitalisation. Another clinical smoking cessation study where 21 smokers received hypnosis for smoking cessation resulted in 81% of the patients giving up smoking by the end of their treatment.
