Many people turn to hypnotherapy to help give up smoking because everything else they have tried has failed.It is therefore testimony to the effectiveness of hypnotherapy that they are then able to succeed. It is not therefore surprising that New Scientist states that Hypnosis is the most effective way of giving up smoking (Cognitive reactions to smoking relapse, Vol 135) or a recent article in Womens Weekly recommends Hypnotherapy stating that Research has shown that this can be five times more effective than nicotine replacement, they also recommended the NCH website as the place to find a therapist, you need look no further!
We are all aware of the effects smoking has on our health; for more information try www.givingupsmoking.co.uk .
So why can it be so hard to give up? As most people consciously want to give up it is not hard to work out that it is the subconscious that promotes the need to smoke. For those who struggle to give up the battle between the conscious and subconscious mind is weighted in favour of the subconscious.
Using hypnosis we can access the sub-conscious mind and tip the balance in favour of the conscious.
Providing that your conscious intent is that you 100% want to give up smoking the battle can be won, we cannot however magically make you a non smoker if you are not 100% committed to giving up.
Smoking sensation is one session lasting between 1˝ to 2 hours.
