Our approach to helping you stop smoking
We have a holistic approach to help you quit smoking. We blend multiple types of therapies into a unique, tailor-made package for you. This ensures you are given the help that suits you.
One of the therapies we use to help you stop smoking is hypnosis, part of our hypnotherapy. Hypnotherapy is very successful as it allows your therapist to bypass the part of your consciousness that craves cigarettes and propose methods to help break the pattern of smoking. Before you take part in stop smoking hypnosis, you must be ready to quit smoking – for your own reasons and not for someone else. This proves to be one of the reasons that people relapse back into smoking as they lack the motivation to quit.
Your therapist will work to change your perspective on the action of smoking and the cigarettes themselves. This can make them smell or taste repelling and you learn techniques to use whenever the urge appears to start smoking again. Stop smoking hypnosis can also be used in tandem with nicotine replacement therapy or similar medication to tackle the psychological and physical aspects of smoking.
It is important to remember that stopping smoking may not happen in one session for some people. Long time smokers find it harder to quit, even with hypnotherapy and may require more sessions or follow-up meetings to help keep them from smoking again.

A smoking cessation therapy case study
Jim had been smoking about 40 cigarettes per day for more than 20 years and was quite sceptical about hypnotherapy to start withs. However, he was very keen to stop smoking due to the impending arrival of his first grandchild. He had tried various methods with limited success.
He came in for 1 2-hour session which consisted of a discussion about his typical smoking habits followed by a tailored hypnosis session which took into account his scepticism, as well as his specific smoking habits and aspirations. Jim was also provided with both a hypnosis CD to take home and an individual action plan of practical strategies and advice.
Jim has now been a non-smoker for over 2 years and reports no withdrawal symptoms or weight gain.
How can I thank you? I smoked for 20 years until I came to see you. For what you do, you don’t charge enough!
