STOPTOBER – Do You Really Want to be a NON SMOKER?

 

no smoking

Make October the month that you become a non smoker

Smoking can be a costly habit in more ways than one. According to the NHS, individuals who regularly light up will be over £58,000 out of pocket from a 20 a day, 20 year habit.

Some hypnotherapists will use “aversion techniques” telling how you the possible medical consequences of smoking. You will not get that in the HypnoHut. There is no point, you see that every time you buy a packet of cigarettes.

When people think about stopping smoking, hypnotherapy isn’t always the first method individuals think of, however it can be one of the most effective. Whilst hypnotherapy may not work for everyone, it has been extremely successful for a large number of people.

Seeking hypnotherapy to stop smoking is often seen as a ‘last resort’ foray into an unfamiliar world of complementary healthcare, many have little idea what to expect from being hypnotised and misconceptions are fuelled by the media and stage hypnosis.

Hypnotherapy is defined as an altered state of mind in which the subconscious is more open to suggestion. During a session, a hypnotherapist will look to change your thought patterns by making suggestions. The idea behind the suggestion technique is to reinforce positive affirmations so they eventually replace negative thought patterns.

To give individuals a clear idea of what they can expect from a session, here are the outlines of the key elements of a stop smoking hypnosis session below:

1: The hypnotherapist talks the client through what will happen.

2: The client is taken into a state of deep relaxation.

3: Visualisation and suggestion techniques are used to reprogramme the mind.

4: The client is invited to view their new life as a non-smoker before they are reawakened.

5: A follow-up session is performed a week or two later if required

Stoptober is the month designated by the NHS to encourage smokers to quit smoking for 28 days. We can generally achieve that in 2 hours. BUT you must want to stop smoking or it will not work!
