Well you already know all the reasons why you want to Quit; it’s damaging your health day by day, eroding your stamina, compromising your heart and lungs, sending toxins throughout your body to attack and poison your organs one by one while creating those extra unwanted wrinkles around your mouth and eyes and giving you that dull grey skin tone. Your breath is less than fresh, your clothes smell stale; no matter how much you try to suck on those mints or spray that perfume, that stale smoke smell is ever ready to assault the nostrils of those around you. Meanwhile your bank balance whimpers every time you buy more cigarettes or tobacco as your coulda’been savings waft off in a dark cloud of smoke.
So how can Hypnotherapy help you to quit smoking?
In hypnotherapy we identify the underlying belief that overwrites everything you already know about smoking and keeps you going back for more. During the counselling part of your session we find out about your smoking habits and triggers, and identify the pattern which is currently keeping you locked in the cycle of addiction. Once these are clearly identified we take you into a light trance state. Hypnotic trance is a focused state of absorption, you are fully aware of everything that is happening. When in this state your critical faculty is relaxed and you are more receptive to accepting suggestions that align with your values and goals. Your unhealthy thoughts are effectively redirected onto a new healthier track, and the automatic thoughts that have had you reaching for a cigarette before you even realise what you were doing, are replaced with thoughts that are aligned with your best interest as defined by you and the personal goals you outlined during therapy.
In Hypnotherapy you do the work to achieve the results you want, the Trained Hypnotherapist facilitates the changes you want to make and uses the information that you provide to help you remove psychological obstacles and achieve a deeper understanding and a new perspective on how to achieve your goals.
You have the power to conquer this habit, it’s there waiting to be tapped into. There is no better time than right now to Quit Smoking, you know you’re ready and we know you can do it!
