It usually just
takes one hypnosis session to stop smoking!
Stopping smoking with the
help of hypnosis takes all the discomfort out of stopping smoking.
What can you expect if you come into the office to stop smoking? First,
I spend some time explaining what hypnosis is. We go through an intake
form, because we want to establish that the smoking habit is just a
habit, and not a life crutch. If that smoking habit is a life crutch,
then more thorough hypnotherapy is needed first. We investigate the
strategies you use to keep yourself smoking, the money, work and effort
you had put into remaining a smoker up to that point.
explain about congruence - typically part of a person wants to stop
smoking, and another part wants to keep smoking. The part that wants to
keep smoking sabotages all attempts to stop smoking, and uses all the
strategies that keep you saddled with that smoking habit. We can use
hypnosis to achieve congruence - get all your parts to agree that you
are a non smoker, and once that is achieved, you just stop smoking.
Congruence is where your parts work together in synergy to achieve what
you want, instead of having different parts of you in conflict. If you
have ever worked with a team, you know how much easier it is to get
things done when team members are working together. If the team members
are fighting and in conflict, less gets done. The old saying is "Two
heads are better than one". When there is congurence or synergy, not
only is there more achieved than two single heads working
independently, but there may be multiples of what two heads working
singly can achieve. Two heads working in conflict achieve less than two
heads working singly. Your unconscious mind is similar to that, when
you have congruence, the amount of will power required is very small,
because your unconscious mind carries you along.
After inducing trance, where
I give you simple
instructions, and when you follow the simple instructions, you put
yourself into trance, remaining aware of everything, actually some
experts say that in trance your awareness is exponentially increased.
In trance, we go through a
"well formed outcomes",
making sure that stopping smoking is a win win situation for you and
for everyone in your life, that stopping smoking has no potential
negative consequences, and that we keep any benefits you got from
smoking, while dumpng the smoking habit itself.
At this stage, if there is
stil a part of you that
has a doubt about stopping, we use a parts integration to achieve
Typically, we then use a
benefits approach, because
we previously identified the biggest advantages and benefits to you of
stopping smoking. We then sell the benefits of change to your now
congruent subconscious mind.
You are given a hypnosis CD
so you can follow up at
home with a stop smoking CD, so you can integrate the changes more
deeply into your subconscious mind.
There are several strategies
and techniques that can
be used, so we go through the intake form together which will give
ideas as to the best way to proceed, but the above steps are the
If required, there is a free
one hour follow up
session where we can use strategies like the compulsion blowout
technique, EMDR, EFT, smoking strategy disruption. It is possible that
there may be a deeper issue, which smoking is just a symptom of, and
occasionally this is not apparent during the intake form.
Everybody is different, and
everybody deserves an intervention that is tailored for them!!
