QUIT SMOKING

The majority of smokers are hooked on a habit they hate. An estimated 80% of smokers would be happy to stop smoking and never feel the urge to light up again. It’s a known fact that smoking causes adverse health reactions. When so many smokers want to quit, have reasons to quit, know just how bad cigarettes are damaging their health – just what is holding them back from quitting in the first place?

Nicorette addiction becomes deeply ingrained into the subconscious mind. You may recognise that smoking is causing you health problems, and that you want to quit – but on a subconscious level, this addiction triggers thoughts that cause nicotine craving.

Mind Road Blocks

  • What if there is a way to shut off that voice in your head?
  • To stop that triggering thought process that results in you reaching for another cigarette?
  • To be able to reframe your thoughts and gain control of your emotions that trigger your cravings –
    and put a STOP to it?

If you wish to regain control of your life and your health, and put an end to your smoking addiction, I can help.

Hypnotherapy is an effective and successful treatment to combat nicotine addiction – with 95% of clients achieving success within the first session.

With the assistance of a qualified professional, you will be able to untangle the web of thoughts that hold your addiction tightly in place. You will be able to gain control of your cravings, understand the emotional responses and underlying concerns that trigger your need to smoke, and take charge of your life to lead it into a happier and healthier future.

As with any addiction, it’s difficult to quit on your own – even more so when withdrawal symptoms come into play. Nicotine withdrawal can cause nausea, aches, sore throat, headaches and irritability. These withdrawal symptoms often drive a person back into smoking to reduce their comfort, despite having a desire to quit. Although these symptoms are uncomfortable to a degree, there is something going on inside at a deeper level that makes kicking your addiction so hard to achieve alone.

Over the years, you may have learned an unhealthy coping method in response to dealing with stressful or uncomfortable situations.  They key to quitting smoking is to eliminate the automatic emotional response to stress or events that causes you to turn to a comfort habit – smoking – and to achieve that, we have to target the emotional response from the subconscious.

When is my treatment right for you?

  • Are you trying to quit smoking?
  • Are you anxious about quitting?
  • Are you concerned about your health?
  • Do you feel tired and fatigued, or low in energy?
  • Do you have a ‘smoker’s cough’? Is your chest tight?
  • Do you feel embarrassed about smoking?
  • Are you tired of wasting money on cigarettes?
  • Have you tried to quit before, but cannot tolerate the cravings and withdrawals?
  • Are you ready to stop smoking once and for all?

If you’ve answered yes to some (or all) of these – you are ready to take your next step. Using hypnotherapy, I will help you stop your smoking habit and eliminate the cause once and for all. At the end of the first session – you will leave as a non-smoker.

Why Hypnotherapy?

Because it works! Hypnotherapy offers the power of positive suggestion to develop and permanently strengthen your willpower to stop your smoking addiction. You do not have to believe in Hypnosis for the treatment to be effective; but you do need to come with an open mind and a willingness for change.

How Hypnotherapy Works

Hypnosis is a completely natural, non-invasive method that guides your mind into relaxation to be able to access your subconscious. The Hypnotherapist removes negative associations and triggers causing the addiction, and replaces them with positive and healthier ways of coping with your natural response methods, to encourage a healthier lifestyle.

What Can I Expect?

Your smoking cessation session begins with a discussion to discover more information about your lifestyle, smoking habits, associations and routines in relation to smoking.
Once under Hypnosis – I include suggestions that will encourage you to choose a non-smoking lifestyle, and that you do not substitute smoking for food or alternative coping method.

How Many Sessions Will I Need?


Many experience successful change after just one session. Some clients prefer two or more sessions, especially when dealing with difficult to manage emotional triggers such as stress, anxiety and depression. I also offer complimentary ongoing support and calls after sessions if you have any questions or need some extra support.
