Hypnotherapy seems to be widely known for its ability to help people quit smoking. In general, it is seen that it is possible, with the help of hypnotherapy to give up smoking after only one session. But, as we are aware, we are all individuals and one person will be able to give up after one session, whilst another person may need two and another may even need three sessions. Let us not forget those that can give the habit up without any help whatsoever!
The use of hypnotherapy is extremely effective for those people that are harden smokers that have been smoking regularly for the majority of their lives; those people who you may think would find it hard or impossible to give up because they have been smoking for so long and it has become a real habit! Yes, hypnotherapy can even help them. Hypnotherapy may make giving up easier.
This therapy uses some of the most basic hypnotherapy techniques – direct suggestion. Unless the smoking is associated with an anxiety, in which case, that will need treating as well.
The initial consultation and therapy usually takes between one and one and a half hours where you will get some practical help and some positive input. Your hypnotherapist shouldl also discuss how hypnotherapy can help you and what your role will be. So, by the end of the session you will leave a non-smoker and you will be very clear what you have to do to remain a non-smoker.
Whatever your problem, why not see if hypnotherapy can help you? It's always private and confidential.
