How Hypnosis Solves These Issues

Hypnotherapy addresses various facets of smoking addiction, offering practical solutions to common challenges:

Intense Cravings for Nicotine

Hypnosis works by reducing the intensity of nicotine cravings, making it easier to resist the urge to smoke.

Psychological Dependence as Stress-Relief

It reprograms the mind to find healthier, more effective stress-relief mechanisms, diminishing reliance on smoking as a coping tool.

Breaking Smoking Routines and Rituals

Hypnotherapy helps in altering daily routines and rituals associated with smoking, replacing them with healthier habits.

Coping with Withdrawal Symptoms

Techniques such as deep breathing and relaxation in hypnotherapy alleviate withdrawal symptoms like irritability, anxiety, and restlessness.

Overcoming Mental Barriers to Quitting

It addresses fears and mental barriers, such as fear of failure or weight gain, boosting confidence and motivation to quit.

Smoking as a Social Habit

Hypnosis helps to disconnect the association between social situations and smoking, reducing social triggers.

Automatic, Unconscious Smoking Triggers

By delving into the subconscious, hypnosis changes automatic responses to triggers like coffee or alcohol.

Nicotine Addiction and Emotional Factors

Hypnotherapy targets the emotional and psychological factors compounding nicotine addiction, fostering a more profound, more holistic change.

Habitual Smoking Linked to Specific Times/Activities

It helps in dissociating smoking from specific activities or times of the day, breaking the habitual pattern.

Relapse after Previous Attempts to Quit

Hypnosis rebuilds self-belief and determination, addressing discouragement and scepticism from past failures, making the journey towards quitting more resilient.
In essence, hypnosis tackles the root causes of smoking addiction, enabling a comprehensive and lasting solution to quit.

Tailoring Mental Strategies to Help You Become Smoke-Free

Our approach to smoking cessation is rooted in a blend of Clinical Hypnotherapy, Psychotherapy, Counselling, NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming), and Psychology, each contributing to a comprehensive treatment plan:

Clinical Hypnotherapy

We utilise hypnotherapy to access the subconscious mind, where the deep-rooted smoking habits reside. This method helps reshape these habits and instil new, healthier responses to cravings.

Psychotherapy

Our psychotherapeutic interventions delve into the emotional and psychological aspects of smoking addiction, addressing issues like stress and anxiety that often trigger the smoking habit.

Counselling

Through counselling, we provide a supportive space for clients to explore their smoking habit, understand its origins, and develop strategies to overcome it.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)

NLP techniques are employed to change how clients perceive smoking, turning negative habits into positive behaviours and reinforcing their commitment to quit.

Psychology

Grounded in psychological principles, our approach helps in understanding the cognitive aspects of smoking addiction and employs research-backed strategies to tackle it effectively.

Combining these methods, we not only target the habit of smoking itself but also address the underlying triggers and mental patterns, ensuring a more prosperous and long-lasting cessation.

Session Fees and Duration

Our approach to helping you quit smoking through hypnotherapy is tailored to your individual needs, and our fee structure reflects this personalised service:

Fee Per Session: We charge £190 for each one-hour hypnotherapy session.

The number of sessions required for smoking cessation can vary depending on several factors, including the intensity of the smoking habit, individual psychological factors, and how deeply ingrained the pattern is. While some clients may find significant progress within a single session, others may benefit from a series of sessions to overcome their addiction and ensure lasting change fully.
