The British Lung Foundation is holding Lung Cancer Awareness Month this November. An event which hopes to educate the public about the health risks of smoking as well as organising events and campaigns to spread awareness of the various avenues of help available.
As one of the founding members of the United Kingdom Lung Cancer Coalition (UKLCC) the British Lung Foundation is working alongside various lung cancer experts, senior NHS and Department of Health professionals and charities in a bid to give those with lung cancer a louder voice and obtain them the best care possible.
One of the avenues of help available to smokers is that of hypnotherapy, which will see the hypnotherapist using the techniques they feel will best help you to overcome your addiction.
Often a practitioner will choose to integrate a technique known as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) into your treatment. CBT is basically a form of treatment which aims to change thoughts and behaviour in order to bring about positive change and when applied with hypnotherapy, the combined treatments have been found to be highly effective.
