Smoking Cessation through Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy
‘Hypnosis is the most effective way of giving up smoking”– New Scientist ( vol. 136)
It would be great to have a magic wand and make you a non-smoker overnight! However contrary to many claims from hypnotherapists stopping smoking does require some will-power and motivation on your part. The good news is that studies show that with hypnotherapy you are five to fifteen times more likely to succeed than by will-power alone.
See yourself now as a happy healthy non-smoker:
- More energy and confidence
- Better health and a longer life
- More freedom and money
- No more worries about what you are doing to your body
- Younger looking skin
- Increased libido
- More in control of your life, better career prospects and social opportunities too
- You will smell great
- Body clear of poisonous toxins
Tired of being “controlled” by smoking? Nicotine: a powerful neuro-stimulant
The Nicotine Trick…
When you smoke your heart rate soars and your whole nervous system is stimulated into greater agitation. A cigarette gives you a two minute fix of dopamine, (that feel good brain chemical) combined with 48 hours of an agitated nervous system. Smokers keep going back for that good feeling to counteract the agitation…. only to increase the agitation. That’s the nicotine trick, smoking promises relaxation but never delivers.
“It feels wonderful to be free of cigarettes after years of trying…”
In these stop smoking sessions I use the latest and most powerful techniques to ensure you get the best chance to to be the happy healthy non smoker. I use a whole range of techniques to create a unique treatment session for you. Each technique on its own could be 100% effective for you—however as one can never tell exactly which approach you will “click” with so we’ll use several techniques in a really powerful combination.
These methods are proven in research studies to be the most effective ways to stop smoking. They are broadly based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Clinical Hypnotherapy.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
Of all psychotherapies CBT has the strongest evidential backing and is now the treatment of choice under the NHS. CBT aims to change thoughts and behaviours to bring about positive changes.
Clinical Hypnotherapy works by taking you into a state of heightened suggestibility where your critical mind takes a break and we can work directly and deeply with your imagination and subconscious to create new beliefs, patterns and habits.
CBT & Hypnotherapy combined
Research studies prove that CBT and Hypnotherapy when applied together are strongly complementary and the resulting effectiveness is raised many many times when used in this powerful combination.
