Hypnotherapy Stop Smoking
A big part of quitting smoking is letting go of the smoking routine you once had and looking at cigarettes differently. Hypnotherapy to stop smoking is fast becoming one of the most popular forms of treatment to help do this.
If you are considering hypnotherapy to stop 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 that you want.
Hypnotherapy works by putting you in a deep, relaxed state where your mind is more open to suggestion. At this point your hypnotherapist will look to change your thought patterns by making suggestions such as ‘I do not want a cigarette’ or ‘I am repelled by the smell of cigarette smoke’. For many people just one session is enough to quit smoking however some may benefit from a follow- up session.
Do you really want to stop smoking?
To be successful the smoker must really want to quit.
Once this decision is made then hypnotherapy can make it much easier to become a non-smoker. Rather than you constantly having to tell yourself that you don’t want a cigarette, hypnotherapy will help you break the habit of wanting to smoke and enable you to focus on the many benefits of giving up.
Each smoker has different reasons for wanting to break the habit so hypnotherapy sessions are always performed on a one to one basis to meet the individual’s requirements. After discussing the clients smoking habits, their reasons for wanting to stop smoking are determined and placed in order of importance.
Whatever the reasons for wanting to stop smoking, the client will have a mental image of how they will be as a non-smoker. This mental image will form the basis of the suggestions, or messages that will be placed in the client’s subconscious during the hypnotherapy session
