A stop smoking hypnotherapy session takes around an hour.
Time is spent getting to know you and your individual relationship with your smoking habit. There is ample time to discuss any concerns you may have about hypnosis and progress can only be made once you feel totally comfortable and at ease.
There will be a period of hypnosis during which you will experience a very relaxing trance, and when you awake you will be able to leave the session feeling relaxed and elated.
Clinical hypnosis works by eliminating the subconscious triggers which keep you smoking - in other words, by breaking the habit. It does this while helping you to feel calm and relaxed in the situations where you used to smoke. It also boosts your willpower to ensure that you can stop in the most appropriate way for you.
Whilst in a hypnotic state, the mind and body can relax deeply yet at the same time you can achieve a very high degree of concentration. As you allow yourself to enter this pleasant state, beneficial suggestions may be received directly and effectively by your mind. The existing pattern of thinking about smoking and having an uncontrollable urge to light up and smoke, can be replaced with a new pattern of not thinking, not wanting, not smoking!
The sessions can either be in person or online and, providing the setup is correct, the results will be equally effective.
Smokers often believe that if they stop smoking:
The surprising fact is that there is no physiological reason for any of these things to happen.
However, because of the way our minds work - if we believe that these things will happen, then they will happen. That's not fair is it?
Don't worry. If you raise your concerns in the session, these issues will be addressed so that your mind completely understands that there are no negatives at all, upon stopping smoking. The only lasting effects are beneficial ones.
