Giving up smoking is one of the best lifestyle changes you can make to benefit your health and future, and in addition saves you several thousand pounds a year. But whilst the damage smoking does to your health is well known, as are the benefits of stopping, people still find it very challenging to stop and stay stopped.
Hypnotherapy can effortlessly aid with the transition into the healthy lifestyle of a non-smoker, by re-educating your subconscious mind back to the non-smoker you previously were. It works by making stopping smoking a quicker, easier and more comfortable process, putting you back in control of your life by permanently overcoming addiction to cigarettes, cigars and other cessations aids such as vaping, nicotine gum and tablets.
The barriers that smokers usually suggest obstruct their attempts to stop smoking are that they:
Tried before and failed.
Too stressed to quit.
Too addicted to nicotine.
Have trouble staying stopped.
Suffer very bad withdrawal symptoms and cravings.
Put on weight.
But with a course of hypnotherapy these barriers can be eliminated. The physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms can be addressed and dependency dealt with and not replaced by something else, such as food, drugs or alcohol. This usually results in a huge sense of relief and elation that nicotine no longer controls your life, releasing you from addiction, so that you can enjoy the many health benefits that follow.
Further benefits are that hypnotherapy boosts willpower and eliminates cravings along with finding alternative ways of dealing with stress, by addressing positive coping strategies and self -management procedures for specific triggers that are linked to smoking and generally reconditioning behaviours back to that of a non-smoker.
A recording of the hypnosis session can be put onto your phone so you can regularly top up your session when required, therefore painlessly easing you more back into the life of a non-smoker.
When you are ready to overcome your smoking habit please contact me for a course of treatment to stop smoking permanently in just a few sessions. Your course will finish with a final maintenance session and I offer the option of an additional backup session (at no extra cost) if needed over the following six months.
If there is excessive stress or anxiety attached to your smoking habit it may be advisable to address these issues previous to starting a stop smoking course. This is generally more beneficial for long-term success, but these and any other issues can be discussed in the free initial consultation.
