Are You Ready To Stop The Smoking Habit?


The Risks of Smoking
 Evidence shows that  smoking is the greatest  cause of illness and premature death in the UK.

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.
