Many people successfully stop smoking with hypnotherapy. Hypnotherapy works by breaking the negative thinking patterns and behaviours that keep people smoking; like smoking to cope with stress. It is these negative habits, thoughts and behaviours that often prevent people from successfully giving up. Stopping smoking with hypnotherapy helps deal with these underlying challenges.
So, when a person decides to quit cigarettes, the most important thing is to change how they look at cigarettes and to let go of their smoking habit. Your hypnotherapist works by guiding you into a calm, relaxed state. During this time, the mind is more open to suggestion and to change. The hypnotherapist will tailor suggestions to you, they will be along the lines of ‘you are now a non smoker’ ‘you have no desire to smoke’ etc. which will help you in changing your thought patterns around smoking.
Your hypnotherapist will also ask about your daily smoking routine, so they can make suggestions in trance that so you will no longer want to smoke at those times. The challenge of breaking this addiction is thus made easier with the support of a hypnotherapist. Because of this, hypnotherapy is fast becoming one of the most popular forms of treatment.
