Stop Smoking Hypnotherapy
We all know smoking kills but many people find the smoking habit hard to kick. However, just because you have not been able to stop before does not mean you cannot stop now!
Everyday is a good day to stop smoking
Stop Smoking Hypnotherapy is an effective and gentle way to stop smoking that is especially adapted for those who want to stop but may be concerned about withdrawal symptoms, gaining weight or restlessness.
The reason hypnosis works because smoking, like all habits, is controlled by the unconscious part of the mind. Hypnosis helps us access the REM state - nature's optimal learning state - and it is in this state that your deeper, unconscious mind is more open to new ideas and suggestions.
A great number of people find Stop Smoking Hypnotherapy an effective treatment. The method works to break the negative behaviours and thinking patterns associated with smoking. The thoughts and behaviours the smoker holds is often what prevents them from successfully giving up. Because hypnosis helps release habits and associations created unconsciously along your smoking life, this makes it easier to quit.
Stop Smoking Hypnotherapy is available online too.

The Key to Success
If you have decided to stop smoking using hypnotherapy, you must first ask yourself the following questions:
- Do you really want to stop? Is your desire to quit stronger than the desire to smoke?
- What are the reasons you want to stop? These reasons must be meaningful enough to you to provide the right level of motivation. Additionally, these must be internally generated: if you stop to please someone else it will simply not work.
What are the benefits of stopping smoking?

What to expect?
To begin with, we will go through a questionnaire to help me understand your personal situation and assess any possible sticking points or major stressors for you. Among other things, we will address the triggers that prompt you to smoke, your smoking routine and your fears around stopping, so that you can experience none or very little withdrawal symptom
Each individual has different reasons for wanting to stop smoking and understanding these motivation factors will help you along the way. So, whatever your reasons for wanting to become a non smoker, we will tailor the session around your needs.
For the hypnosis part of the session, you will sit comfortably in a chair and be invited to relax. Essentially, I will use words to guide you into a very pleasant state of focus, concentration, and relaxation. Once you have allowed yourself to relax into a hypnotic state, I will use suggestions and metaphors to bring about a change at the subconscious level which will support you in your new life as a non-smoker.
