I’d love to help you quit smoking and if you’re ready to quit you can often achieve this in a single hypnosis session. Sometimes it’s deeper rooted and takes a bit longer.
In my work I want to help you not only to stop but to really leave the habit behind, and you’ll do this by learning some proven techniques that show you how to quit – practical and logical things to do which help you move from smoker to non-smoker. I reinforce and support that with hypnosis work structured around who you are and what you need for us to focus on.
Nobody enjoys being condescended to, and everyone knows why smoking isn’t a great long-term choice. You have to have good reasons for stopping smoking. I understand those reasons alone are often not enough to make you stop because the part of you that knows the reasons for stopping is not the same part of you that has the habit. So knowing why you want to stop is simply the first step in making the decision.
Change the way the habit in your mind is working
For most people who smoke, the behaviour becomes compulsive. Stopping seems like a very difficult thing to do. The usual way is force (willpower) – trying to make the mind saying “No!”.
But what about another part of your mind that doesn’t want to obey the rule – the subconscious habit, including your emotional responses, that kicks in in certain moments? In that conflict is where we struggle. That is why hypnotherapy is so effective in helping people to quit.
By influencing the subconscious mind using hypnosis you can create change at the same level of mind as the smoking habit itself. You can overcome the psychological attachment to smoking. Instead of forcing yourself not to smoke using a lot of effort and willpower, you will experience a sense of ease. You will be more in touch with the natural intelligence of your mind and body. When you do this you have a greater sense of security … and a simple desire to not smoke.
The happy thing is you already know how to do this. No matter how long you may have smoked for or how old you were when you started, there was a time when you did not have this habit. This change is not something new, it is getting back to who you really are. You will find the freedom both familiar and deeply satisfying.
Intention vs. desire
It is important to know that there is one thing that your success depends on – and that is your real intention to stop. Almost everyone who smokes wishes they didn’t, or perhaps their doctor or family are saying they should stop. But for some people, deep down they do not actually intend to stop. So you need to be clear: our work rests on your intention.
As you consider this, keep in mind that most smokers can’t easily imagine not smoking. That’s ok. You don’t have to know how you can stop smoking – the ‘how’ is the very thing we help you with.
A question I am often asked about the Stop Smoking with hypnosis session – “Is it guaranteed?”.
Hypnosis does not take away your free will. To be promised a specific outcome is an unfair and misleading (and potentially not legal) practise. Most importantly, to be given the misleading idea that some person or force is controlling your actions denies your own empowerment.
I do guarantee you will be looked after with great skill, attention and respect. My work is based on helping people quit smoking with hypnosis, and I am genuinely interested in your success. I show you the way and smooth out the path, but it is you who walks the path. Ultimately, you are responsible for your actions, and it is from within that responsibility that you’ll find freedom.
I am confident in my skill, but more importantly I am confident in you. You deserve to be free from habits that don’t serve your happiness. You can quit smoking, and I would be delighted to show you how.
