As with any addiction, addiction to nicotine can be a very difficult habit to kick. Quite often people manage to kick the habit, only to relapse in times of stress. A common reason why people are worried about quitting smoking is the fear of weight gain. However it is said that changes in metabolism following stopping smoking, only accounts for a 2-3kg weight gain, but that using food as a substitute for a cigarette is the main reason for weight gain.
A quit smoking Hypnotherapy session is usually a 2 hour session, comprising of discussion and a Hypnotherapy session. Hypnotherapy has helped lots of people who want to quit smoking, the only thing we ask is that you are dedicated in helping us to help you quit for good. It is important that you feel the time is right and you want to say goodbye to the habit…for good.
If you feel that you have had enough of of being a slave to those poisonous sticks, have tried other ways, but been unsuccessful, Hypnotherapy may be for you.
Frequently Asked Questions About Hypnosis
Most people are surprised at just how relaxing Hypnotherapy is, but there’s always plenty of questions before starting treatment. Here are some of my most frequently asked ones. If you have any other questions that are not answered here, please do not hesitate in contacting me.
What does Hypnosis feel like?
Hypnosis is a natural state of mind; people are often surprised that they hear every word and could get up and walk out of the room at any moment. Unless you enter a deeper state, you may not seem any different, just very relaxed. Most people are surprised at just how relaxing it is.
Is Hypnosis dangerous?
Hypnosis is not a dangerous procedure. It is not mind control or brainwashing. A therapist cannot make a person do something embarrassing or that the person doesn’t want to do.
What conditions can Hypnosis treat?
What will happen in a hypnosis session?
I will help you feel at ease during your session. The session includes guiding you into a trance, where your mind and body can completely relax and let go of any tension. Clients report feeling calm, light, focused, sleepy, and pain-free. You are not asleep during the session.
How does Hypnosis work?
During hypnosis, your body relaxes and your thoughts become more focused. Like other relaxation techniques, hypnosis lowers blood pressure and heart rate, and changes certain types of brain wave activity. In this relaxed state, you will feel at ease physically yet fully awake mentally, and you may be highly responsive to suggestion.
There are several stages of hypnosis:
- Reframing the problem
- Becoming relaxed, then absorbed (deeply engaged in the words or images presented by a hypnotherapist)
- Dissociating (letting go of critical thoughts)
- Responding (complying with a hypnotherapist’s suggestions)
- Returning to usual awareness
