Stop Smoking and Addictive Behaviours


Time To Quit SmokingStopping Smoking and changing addictive thoughts and behaviours can be very difficult with just will power and the more you deny yourself what you have perceived for a long time to be a pleasure, the more the desire to give in can increase. Hypnotherapy is designed to work with you by interrupting and changing those old addictive patterns and allowing you to break free from unwanted habits.

There is an ever increasing amount of people who would love to stop smoking these days, with the rising awareness of the risks to health and the inconvenience of standing about in the cold and wet in order to meet the demands of the drug, many people are turning to hypnosis for results.

It is one of the most effective ways to stop smoking, working with the power of your own mind to achieve the motivation and the resolve you need to be successful. Whether this is the first time you are giving up or you have failed in the past it is vital that when you make the call to book, you know you can really do this now.

In order to help you stop, I have designed a choice of 2 treatment plans depending on how much support you believe you will need to ensure your success.

There is a 3 session course which gives you three 1 – 1.15 hour sessions over 3 to 4 weeks. This gives you the extra support over the first few weeks and helps you to really weed out all those thought and behaviour patterns that belonged to the addict. An addictive pattern can be quite childish and can try and hide from your adult wishe,s so it’s important that this part of you doesn’t sabotage you by staying in hiding, then tempting you with,’ you know you want tos’ or ‘Just one will be OK’. Each session includes a hypnosis treatment. The cost of the 3 week course is £160

The other session is an intensive 2.5 hour single appointment. During the appointment we do the same as in the 3 session approach but with just one hypnosis session. This is a very affective plan for people who want that real kick-start to their decision to stop. This is not a matter of will power but of understanding the addictive person within you and finding agreement. If you are at war with yourself internally whether over addiction or any other unwanted habit, the only options you have are advance or retreat. The best way to break this is through negotiation and finding a truce. This session is £95.

I used to smoke so I understand your concerns. I am not ‘a smoker who doesn’t smoke’ as I horrifically heard a radio presenter state we all are, if we stop; I am a non smoker and the thought of smoking anything repulses me. I am happy to be able to smell the occasional smoke and think it smells nice, but I have no desire to EVER EVER draw that smoke into my lungs. I never miss it in my life and the freedom not being controlled 20 times a day just to take time to poison myself is wonderful. I do believe that the hypnotherapy I regularly do on this with clients has embedded this aversion more deeply in me than most, but the strength is testament to its effectiveness.
