More About Hypnotherapy
Unfortunately, various misconceptions surrounding hypnosis have severely damaged the reputation of hypnotherapy.
It is important for a client to realize that the technique does not involve being put into a deep sleep. You remain aware of your surroundings and situation, however, you are able to accept the suggestions of the therapist at a very deep emotional level. The important thing is that the client wants to change some behavioral habit or addiction and is highly motivated to do so. They have to want the treatment to work and must establish a good clinical rapport with the therapist in order for it to do so.
Your therapist will then suggest ideas, concepts and lifestyle adaptations to the client the seeds of which become firmly planted.
In many ways, hypnotherapy is a kind of psychotherapy. Hypnotherapy aims to re-programme patterns of behavior within the mind, enabling irrational fears, phobias, negative thoughts and suppressed emotions to be overcome.
As the body is released from conscious control during the relaxed trance-like state of hypnosis, breathing becomes slower and deeper, the pulse rate drops and the metabolic rate falls. Similar changes along nervous pathways and hormonal channels enable the sensation of pain to become less acute, and the awareness of unpleasant symptoms, such as nausea or indigestion, to be alleviated.
A hypnotherapist will deal with the subconscious part of the mind, that is the non-analytical or instinctive part.
For example, a patient who consciously wants to overcome their fear of spiders may try everything they consciously can to do it, but will still fail as long as their subconscious mind retains this terror and prevents the patient from succeeding. Progress can only be made by reprogramming the subconscious so that deep-seated instincts and beliefs are abolished or altered.
How many sessions will I need?
We recommend a minimum of three sessions for most cases although smoking cessation can take just two sessions.
In an ideal world, we would be looking at between 5 – 10 sessions depending on the severity of the symptoms.
SMOKING CESSATION PACKAGES
HYPNOTHERAPY ONLY £150.00
30 minutes FREE consultation
By using advanced hypnosis we can find out where your subconscious is gaining its ‘satisfaction link’ from and redirect that satisfaction link elsewhere, to stop any cravings. We can also use a suggestion script that will help you further. Most people assume that when they stop smoking they will put on weight or become ‘moody’ or aggressive. In some this becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy, because they already believe it is going to happen, it will happen. We can change the way your subconscious views this so that weight gain/anger do not become options.

2 x 1 hours Hypnotherapy and Acupuncture
The combination of hypnotherapy with acupuncture is in our opinion, the quickest way to give up smoking, by treating the “satisfaction link” mentioned above, and by altering the body’s perception of nicotine.
Acupuncture treatment tends to transform the taste of tobacco into a bad experience, which may make smoking cessation less difficult. Also, acupuncture treatment alleviates nervousness, agitation, and other signs of mental distress. This calming effect may also make the smoking cessation experience less stressful.
