The Risks of Smoking

How can Hypnotherapy help?
Hypnotherapy is different from other therapies there is no physical manipulation and the conscious mind, with its anxious or analytical thoughts, is bypassed. It is the conscious mind which can often hinder the success of other forms of psychological work such as counselling or psychotherapy.
Beneficial results are often achieved faster than with other therapies. Using the tool of hypnosis the therapist guides the client into a relaxed state enabling direct access to their subconscious mind. This is where our instinctive behaviour patterns and natural reactions are formed. Using positive suggestion and imagery the therapist is able to focus on the behaviours that the client wishes to change
What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a safe, powerful technique creating a deeply relaxed state of the body, mind and emotions. It is also a perfectly natural state that we are often in during our everyday lives i.e whilst reading a book, watching television, or doing repeated tasks.
The therapist guides you into a relaxed trance state by the sound of their voice. It is not sleep. In this relaxed state the subconscious mind accepts suggestions to promote and reinforce ositive messages.
Is it safe?
No-one can be hypnotised against their will and even when in trance people can still reject any of the suggestions given if they are not appropriate.
Benefits gained by stopping smoking
The benefits of stopping begin straight away. You reduce your risk of getting serious disease no matter what age you give up. However, the sooner you stop smoking, the greater the reduction in your risk.
