Give Up Smoking
Hypnosis is one of the most popular modalities to help people to give up smoking.
It’s easy, it’s fast, it’s effective and it’s painless.
Hypnosis is a set of instructions that are designed to work with your unconscious mind so that you let go of the habit easily and effectively.
Relaxation helps your mind focus and concentrate on the instructions and well; it just feels good to feel relaxed doesn’t it?! Sometimes people will say to me “You can’t hypnotize me!” or they are afraid that they won’t be able to be hypnotized, but the truth is that all hypnosis is self-hypnosis.
It’s absolutely true – I can’t hypnotize you, but I can give you the instructions and guide you through hypnosis so that you can hypnotize yourself and take you so deep into your unconscious mind that the changes you make are solid and binding.
As a Clinical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist, my aim is to help you make changes to your memories, your patterns, your habits and your behavior at the unconscious level so that it feels like the changes you have made are automatic. You don’t have to think about what you like or don’t like, or what you do in your day – everything happens automatically the way you want it to be.
6 Reasons Why You Might Be Ready to Give Up Smoking:
- You’re feeling the impact on your health
- You’re coughing badly and frequently
- You don’t have the energy you used to have
- It’s costing a fortune
- You’re scared because you’ve been smoking for years and have so far escaped any long-term illness
- You want to live longer
- You want to give up smoking for your kids, grandkids or partner
To be honest, the money and financial strain doesn’t generally encourage people to stop smoking even though the cost of smoking can be anywhere between $200 – $350 per week.
Hypnosis to give up smoking primarily involves visualization and reprogramming patterns of behavior.
The process of mental rehearsal is essential to anyone’s success in life. The more you imagine what you want to achieve the more you are training your unconscious mind to do what you want it to do. And that little voice in your head that doesn’t stop talking – we want to get that voice to start being on your side and to let go of self-doubt, let go over stress and to start feeling confident.
With hypnosis to give up smoking, I help people to change their memories, change the meaning of a cigarette, change their feelings, change their self-talk and change the habit altogether, no matter if you have been smoking for 5 – 10 -20 -30 years.
Some women worry that they will put on weight when they give up smoking but that is not the case and I always add in extra suggestions to counteract that from happening. Some men worry they’ll get angry easily because they use cigarettes as a stress relief.
Again that is not the case and I always add in a suggestion to make sure that you have other ways to relax and distress without cigarettes. The only side effect to give up smoking with hypnosis is that you dissociate yourself from smoking – in other words – it’s like cigarettes were never a part of your life.
I always ask people to bring in any cigarettes they have plus a lighter so that we can test at the end that you are effectively a non-smoker. If you are ready to give up smoking now, click the button below for more details on what to expect in our session.
