Tired of the smell, the taste,
the expenses involved with smoking?
Tired of your friends and family complaining?
If you have tried quitting before you know that there are many factors that keep bringing you back to smoking. Perhaps you are disgusted with the self-sabotaging behavior, but can’t seem to get around it. Hypnotherapy will help you get to the roots of your specific, individual saboteurs and remove them forever!
Hypnotherapy is a highly effective therapy for smoking cessation. Working with the subconscious mind, hypnosis allows a person to receive and accept suggestions about the positive reasons he or she should quit smoking. After a hypnotherapy session, a person feels relaxed and more prone to implementing a nonsmoking lifestyle. During the session I work with the client to discover their triggers and collapse any anchors that are connecting them to the unwanted habit as well as give them posthypnotic suggestions that will help support their efforts to remain smoke free.
Hypnosis is an alternate state of mind, a state of deep relaxation in which a person becomes susceptible to the suggestions made by the hypnotherapist. The hypnotherapist may give a posthypnotic suggestion for the person to use when they finds themselves reaching for a cigarette, such as seeing a warning sign when reaching for a cigarette or feeling a burning sensation when touching one. Due to altered brain wave functions arising from the deep relaxation state, the client becomes more prone to taking positive suggestions on the lifestyle changes they wish to pursue. Hypnotherapy makes it possible for the person to realize why they want to quit smoking. Hypnosis also provides the motivation for quitting smoking with repeat sessions that emphasize the positive points of not smoking.
Hypnotherapy is not a magic cure for quitting smoking. Hypnosis does not work for all people. In order for hypnotic suggestions to take positive effect, the person must want to act on the behavior modification. Don’t’ bother sending your loved one is they don’t truly desire to quit smoking. Hypnotizing someone and suggesting they quit smoking when they really don’t want to will not cause them to quit smoking. However, if you or someone you know is ready hypnotherapy is a fast and effective method of letting go of the smoking habit for good.
