Stop Smoking with Hypnosis
When smokers try to stop with other methods, they suffer misery and depression caused by the feeling that they are being deprived of a pleasure or a crutch. The beauty of hypnosis, and the way we use hypnosis in particular, is that it removes this feeling of deprivation. It removes the need, and desire, to smoke. You won't need useless aids, gimmicks, or substitutes. No nicotine gum or patches. No inhalers or nasal sprays. No needles or lasers. All that you have to do with hypnosis is sit back in a nice comfortable chair and relax. It doesn't get much easier than that.
Our Unique Approach
Since the American Medical Association (AMA) and the British Medical Association (BMA) approved the use of clinical hypnosis in the 1950s, thousands of people have found hypnosis to be an effective way to stop smoking, lose weight and improve their lives in many ways. There are varying degrees of success with hypnosis because much depends upon the skill, expertise, experience and competence of the individual hypnotherapist.
The beauty of our unique approach is that we use the best of traditional hypnotherapy techniques and combine them with the new science of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), which takes our process to an even greater level of effectiveness.
One of the reasons why it's not painful or difficult to stop smoking with our method - in fact, one of the reasons why it's so easy - is that we transfer the pleasure derived from smoking to a healthier habit of your choice e.g. exercise, drinking more water or good old fashioned relaxation. This is the reason why, with us, there is NO unwanted weight gain or other problems associated with kicking the habit - the only side-effects are improvments in health, wealth and freedom.
Nothing to fear, everything to gain
Hypnosis is possibly as old as mankind. The old myths and misconceptions about hypnosis have given way to proven, scientifically sound applications. Today, the use of hypnosis is seen in a variety of fields including: medicine, dentistry, law enforcement, professional sports, and education.
Most people have a limited understanding of the positive results that can be achieved in professional sports and education. Most people have a limited understanding of the positive results that can be achieved in a professionally controlled hypnosis session. We would like to dispel some of the myths and answer the most frequently asked questions about hypnosis.
How does hypnosis work?
Our minds work on two levels - the conscious and the unconscious. We make decisions, think, and act with our conscious mind. The unconscious mind controls our habits. In the relaxed state known as hypnosis, we can communicate directly with the unconscious mind. This is why it is so quick and easy to change habits of a lifetime with hypnosis.
Will hypnosis work for me?
Generally speaking, every normal person is "hypnotizable". That is, people with an IQ of at least 70, and no severe mental disorders. Therefore, virtually anyone can achieve successful results using hypnosis. Since the session is custom tailored to your individual needs it works for almost everyone.
How will I know if I am hypnotized?
Most people cannot tell the difference between the hypnotized and the waking states. Some people feel relaxed and sleepy, others feel a sort of lightness. One thing that people do notice is an inexplicable change for the better in their daily behaviours.
Is hypnosis safe?
Hypnosis and NLP are completely safe. You are aware and in control at every moment and can terminate the session at any time. Hypnosis is not sleep, nor can you get "stuck" in a state of hypnosis. You cannot be made to do something against your will. Hypnosis is a safe, relaxing, and enjoyable experience.
How does hypnosis help me to kick the smoking habit?
Because smoking is a habit, it is controlled by the unconscious mind. Since hypnosis and NLP work directly with the unconscious, this is the only method that makes sense. We can help you effortlessly transition into the healthy lifestyle of a happy non-smoker - it only takes sixty minutes to quit.
So naturally hypnosis is the obvious choice to quit cigarettes safely, permanently and easily.
