There is no doubt that the habit of smoking can and does kill many thousands of people every year. Graphic advertisements on the Television have become the norm as the Government steps up it’s “Quit line” campaign. Yet many people find it difficult to quit smoking, even with the aid of methods like patches and pills. Meanwhile the price of cigarettes and tobacco continue to rise and many cannot afford it any more.
Clinical hypnosis is a safe and natural approach to quitting smoking.There are no negative side effects or other potential health risks associated with clinical hypnosis.
The Smoking Habit
The conscious mind of a smoker generally knows that smoking is a dangerous and expensive habit. It has also become a quite an antisocial habit compared to what it was 20 to 30 years ago, yet a smokers subconscious mind just won’t let it go. It’s as if there are two parts within the mind which are in constant conflict. Many smokers have attempted to use “willpower” and “cold turkey” methods for quitting but in most instances, without lasting success.
Often a person’s own ‘Self talk’ can sabotage their efforts to change. For example, a smoker says to himself/herself “I will give up smoking” or “I must give up smoking”. The word ‘will’ and the word “must” is always in the future. The words ‘give up’ denote a sense of ‘loss or sacrifice’. To move towards your desired outcome rather than moving away from what it is that you don’t want to happen, is an important concept to consider here.
The smoker will often derive a sense of comfort from having a cigarette, or smoking can operate as a kind of release valve when a person is experiencing a ‘build up’ of stress. It can also provide an excuse to take a break or serve to keep the hands and mouth busy when under perceived social pressures.
What about Nicotine?
Much emphasis is given to the “nicotine addiction”. However, although nicotine is a powerful substance, it is not the biggest challenge. It is the psychological and emotional attachments and associations to the habit that present the biggest challenge for those who try to stop smoking. Hypnotherapy provides a way for smokers to deal with these psychological and emotional attachments that have helped form the habit. It can help with transitioning them to becoming and remaining a non-smoker.
As a Professional Clinical Hypnotist, I will work with you on an individual basis to transition you from being a smoker, to becoming a Non Smoker. Because for lasting and meaningful behavioural change to occur, it must happen at the sub conscious mind level. Hypnotherapy is a powerful intervention that can facilitate lasting change. It has been well documented that out of all treatments for smoking cessation, clinical hypnosis scores one of the highest success rates.

If you are thinking about Quitting Smoking, one of the most effective ways to achieve this is through Clinical Hypnosis. The Key factor for those of you who are thinking about quitting smoking, is that you must want to stop, and must make the decision for yourself. Once the decision has been made, clinical hypnosis can facilitate the re-education (reprogramming of) and rehabilitation of the subconscious mind to become that of a non-smoker.
