How can I help?
Many people try to give up smoking through sheer willpower – and a great number fail. With Hypnotherapy, you don’t need willpower – just a 100% commitment to giving up smoking. This can be achieved in as little as one session – if you really WANT to give up.
“Giving up smoking with Andrea was one of the best decisions I have ever made.
I can’t thank her enough…” S. Neil
If you are considering hypnotherapy to quit smoking the first step is to make sure you are choosing to quit for yourself. Hypnotherapy is most effective when you really want to quit – if you are doing it because you think you ‘should’ or because a friend or family member is pushing you, you may not get the results you want.
Perhaps most importantly cigarettes become for most people part of a coping mechanism to try to deal with emotional pressures like stress and boredom. When a smoker becomes upset, he or she reaches for the cigarette to try and feel better. The truth is that cigarettes are a false friend that tries to control and injure you. There are much more positive ways to learn to calm and feel better without replacing smoking with food and putting on weight. You can learn how.
In 2013, a 20-a-day smoker of a premium cigarette brand will spend about £2,900 a year on cigarettes. Estimates for the total amount spent on tobacco in the UK in 2011 range from £15.3-18.3 billion.Statistics also show that smokers also pay with their health. The results from a 50-year study show that half to two thirds of all lifelong cigarette smokers will be eventually killed by their habit.
In Britain, the use of hypnotherapy to stop smoking has been recognised as the most effective help available to treat addicted smokers by the British Medical Association.
Statistics show hypnotherapy to be more effective than other methods like nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) using gum and/or patches or advice from your GP. As a result, hypnotherapy is fast becoming one of the most popular forms of treatment to help do this and The National Council for Hypnotherapy has 1,800 hypnotherapist members – many with high success rates in stop-smoking treatment.
