Hypnosis for smoking
If you've decided that it is time to finally quit smoking you've come to the right place. A major study involving almost 72,000 participants found that hypnosis was more effective than alternative quit smoking methods such as self-care, nicotine gum, acupuncture, adverse plans and education methods (Viswesvaran & Schmidt, 1992) . Additionally a study of 71 smokers who quit smoking using guided imagery found that participants were twice as likely to remain smoke-free than those who quit using counseling and educational sessions (Wynd, 2005).
Often people turn to hypnotherapy after having tried every other option. The irony is that many of them wish they'd tried hypnotherapy first!*
HOW DOES IT WORK?
So why is hypnosis so effective? What many people don't realise that over 80% of our decisions are made subconsciously. This means that many of the decisions that we think we have conscious control over, we actually don't. When it comes to habits such as smoking the subconscious mind plays an important role in maintaining the habit, and this is where hypnosis is so valuable.
By working with the subconscious mind hypnotherapy gets to the heart of the issue and changes the automatic behaviour that sustains habits such as smoking. Put simply, habits are maintained because the subconscious associates certain things we do with getting a reward. If this part of the brain associates smoking with reward it will continue to do everything it can to encourage you to continue - even if it is against your better conscious judgement. This is why so many people feel powerless to stop, even though they know deep down that they are slowly poisoning themselves.
WHAT HAPPENS IN THE CONSULTATION?
Quit smoking hypnosis is usually conducted over two sessions. The first session involves a detailed discussion about your history, your relationship with smoking and seeks to iron out any potential stumbling blocks before you finally quit. The second session is the full quit smoking hypnosis session where you will receive all the resources you need to become a non-smoker.
