Stop Smoking

Quitting smoking is one of the best things you can do for your health – but relying on will power alone is the least effective way to stop. I’m a local CNHC.org.uk registered Clinical Hypnotherapist supporting the Public Health England Stoptober campaign.

‘Smoking remains England’s biggest killer, causing 78,000 deaths a year.Supporting smokers to quit is vitally important…’  – Public Health England – http://www.gov.uk/phe

I work with clients to build on their strengths and reasons for quitting whilst giving them the latest facts on what smoking does to us and why we smoke in the first place. We add a pinch of hypnosis to the mix and help bypass those doubts – building on your self belief and helping you to not just say NO for now or the next couple of weeks but to remember what we’ve talked about in 5 years when you’ve had a stressful day and a couple of drinks.

Clients often find sessions fun and relaxing helping them to leave our session (armed with my support audio) feeling that quitting might be easier than they had expected.

It appears I’m naturally very fit and I can still make use of that. The idea of wasting that natural ability is driving me on. And the joy this is bringing me outweighs any desire to smoke and for the first time ever (as far as I can remember) I really feel like I’ve got this. My perspective has shifted completely. On top of this, my partner is loving the change in me, especially in my energy and happiness.

In the words of Dipti Tate ‘You wouldn’t visit a dentist and not open your mouth’. Hypnosis isn’t a magic wand I’m afraid – as such your participation and engagement are key to a successful result.
