using the power of your conscious and subconscious mind.

In a single 90 minute session

How the Stop Smoking Session works

First, without using hypnosis I explain how the habit of smoking works, and help you focus your intention on being a non-smoker.

Next we use hypnosis for deeper change
You will be asked to lie on a couch and will be relaxed into a very quiet and comfortable state where your subconscious mind can more easily absorb the suggestions I give for calmness and the easy with which you will stop smoking. All you have to do is to relax and enjoy the experience while letting the positive suggestions sink into your subconscious .

You are always in charge of your mind
It's still up to you to want to give up smoking. Hypnosis doesnít control your mind and cannot make you do something against your will, so it is very important that you really have decided to stop smoking.

Through these years I have acquired some of the best techniques and brought them together in a single package to help you quit smoking.

Addiction or Habit?

Hypnotherapy relies on the fact that smoking is a habit and NOT an addiction. Although we are all told of the addictive properties of nicotine, the fact is that people are not addicted to nicotine.

Surprised? Lets look at how addiction works.

A true physical addiction occurs when the body craves a substance and needs an ever increasing amount of that substance to fulfil its needs. However, as we all know the majority of smokers are satisfied with a daily number of cigarettes which remains constant for many years. You may have smoked 20 cigarettes per day for 30 years. This is not characteristic of an addiction.

The other difference is that smokers don't wake up every hour through the night to have a smoke. It may seem impossible to go more than an hour without a cigarette during the day but you may well sleep for 8 hours without any craving whatsoever.

Also, when you are absorbed in an activity you often donít think about smoking. When you are in a place where you know you canít smoke, at work or in a no-smoking area, it somehow doesnít matter if you donít smoke.

Smoking is a very strong habit and will produce a craving for cigarettes. This craving comes from the subconscious part of our minds and continues even when we consciously want to stop. The craving is a psychological one, which is why hypnotherapy has been used for so long in helping people to stop smoking.

It goes to show the tremendous power that the subconscious mind has to control us and make us believe and do things in our life. It is a miracle how a cigarette can calm anyone's nerves. After a nerve-racking day at work or in some other stressful situation you will light a cigarette, draw on it and feel a tremendous feeling of calm. But why? It is a vasoconstrictor. It puts your blood pressure up and gives you a buzz. The only calming effect is a psychological one.

Be aware of your anxiety

Before you stop smoking you need to be aware if you have a high level of anxiety. Not just how stressed you are on a daily basis but your underlying emotions.

If you have symptoms such as anxiety, depression, panic attacks and low self esteem, and you use smoking to calm yourself, then even with hypnotic suggestion you may find it impossible not to go back to smoking. If this is the case then you need to find and release these traumas before attempting to quit smoking. Hypno-analysis is an ideal way to do this. (See Hypno-analysis page). After this the Stop Smoking therapy works even more effectively.
