There is no doubt that the habit of smoking tobacco products 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 in an effort to convince smokers to “Quit smoking” before it kills them. Yet many people find it difficult to quit smoking, even with the aid of methods like patches and pills. Apart from the fact that 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 conscious mind of a smoker generally knows that smoking is a very dangerous and expensive habit, and it has become a quite an antisocial habit in comparison to what it was 20 to 30 years ago, yet their subconscious mind just won’t let it go. It’s as if there are two parts within which are in constant conflict. Many smokers have attempted to use “willpower” and “cold turkey” methods to break the habit but in most instances without lasting success. Quite often a person’s own ‘Self talk’ can sabotage their efforts to change e.g. 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’. 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.
Much emphasis is given to the “nicotine addiction” and although nicotine is a powerful substance, it is the psychological habit and emotional attachments and associations that produce the biggest challenge to those who try to stop smoking. Hypnotherapy provides a way for the smoker to deal with these psychological and emotional attachments that have helped form the habit, and can help with transitioning them to 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. 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.

‘Proving that hypnosis is the most effective way to quit smoking, according to the largest ever scientific comparison of ways of breaking the habit. Willpower, as it turns out, counts for very little.’

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 who are thinking about quitting smoking, is that they must want to stop, and must make the decision themselves. 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.
