Nobody is born a smoker. Smoking is something that people choose to do for a variety of reasons. Perhaps it was peer pressure from friends when you were younger. Maybe you smoked that first cigarette out of curiosity, boredom or a desire to appear more 'grown up'. The thought of having to stop doing something that we enjoy is not one that many of us look forward to. However, you are not actually giving anything up. All you are doing is returning to being a non smoker again; something that you are already used to and a state that your body is naturally designed for.
Do you want to stop smoking but are finding it hard to have that last cigarette? Perhaps you've already tried nicotine patches, e-cigarettes, Champix, Zyban or your local free NHS Stop Smoking Service? Most people are aware of the addiction to nicotine and health problems that smoking can cause, but there are often hidden worries about stopping smoking too, including fears about weight, what others will think and how you will cope. Hypnotherapy can help you to address these issues and when combined with your willpower, can help you to stop smoking.
Before your first session, I will ask you to complete an information form and then during your session, we will go through your answers and identify any problems or beliefs that may be contributing to your smoking patterns and habit. We will also do some hypnotherapy to prepare you for becoming a non smoker. Two weeks later, you will return for your second session, where a combination of hypnosis, therapy and NLP will be used to help you become a non smoker again. You will also receive a CD or MP3 to listen to every day for three weeks following your session.
There are several factors that can affect the outcome of hypnotherapy and these include the level of rapport with your therapist and the techniques used, but most important of all, is your level of motivation and commitment to becoming a non smoker. Hypnosis is not a magic pill; you cannot be made to do something that you do not wish to do, therefore you must be prepared to play your part too.
