What is hypnosis?
A deep relaxation technique which gives you a similar feeling to daydreaming. It is a perfectly safe, natural state of mind.
What does hypnosis do?
It allows communication with the subconscious mind. Here we can retrain our thought processes to respond differently to ‘light up triggers’.
It also works on the positive benefits of being a non smoker:
Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to say:
I feel fitter and healthier. I am not breathless when I run up the stairs.
I have a wonderful sense of taste and smell. I really enjoy my food.
My breath is fresh, my hair and clothes smell clean.
I am there for the people who rely on me.
I am saving a considerable amount of money.
Under hypnosis your subconscious mind will accept positive ideas like these, and having done that it will oppose any of the old smoking habits. They now have no role to play. It knows that you want these positive benefits and recognises that smoking can not help to achieve them.
The therapy also works on an emotional level, dealing with all the various feelings associated with smoking, such as guilt and fear.
