There are another 2.3 million who smoke pipes or cigars.
There are a similar number of ex smokers
A very large percentage of these people also fall into the category of those who ‘Really want to give up Smoking’, so there is a huge potential for this type of business within the normal every day practice of Hypnotherapy. This is also a very lucrative component of our industry.
By learning the skills presented within this course you will be able to treat even the most addicted of smokers with a greater confidence than ever before.
The course has been carefully developed over a period of time, based on the many years of personal experience in Hypnotherapy. Therefore, throughout the training your tutor is able to offer as much support as required. This is totally flexible as we appreciate that we are all individuals and some of us prefer close supervision, while others wish to work through the course with little contact. It is your course and you can do it in the way you want to. All you need to do is be committed and learn to the standards that allow you to be a confident and competent Smoking Cessation practitioner.
