The British Medical Association states that whilst smoking is becoming less widespread, it remains a leading cause of death and disease in the UK - but we already know that, so why do we continue to smoke when we know the risks?
Unfortunately our subconscious mind has been programmed by advertising and false self-programming to believe that “It’s difficult to stop”, “I need it”, “It helps me cope with stress”. In fact smoking is a major cause of anxiety and depression.
How Can Hypnotherapy Help Me Stop Smoking?
Hypnotherapy works differently from most other stop smoking therapies. It's drug free and there is no physical manipulation. We work directly with the subconscious mind helping you to make those positive changes by guiding you into a deeply relaxed trance state. Here we can focus on those negative behaviours that you wish to change. Results are often achieved faster than with other therapies.
But don't worry, no-one can be hypnotised against their will and even when in trance you can still reject any of the suggestions given if they are not appropriate.
*"Thank you! I've been a non-smoker for 4 years now. Thank you so much!"

The Sooner You Give Up The Better You'll Feel
However, the sooner you stop smoking, the greater the reduction in your risk, and even better than that your finances will improve immediately!
A 20-a-day smoker spends over £10 a day on cigarettes. That's over £70 per week! Or, £3,640 every year! Just think what you could buy with that extra money ... a Rolex watch, diamond jewellery, a luxury hot tub jacuzzi whirlpool Bath, a brand new car or a holiday of a lifetime. In fact, you could potentially have a holiday of a life-time every year if you continue to save your cigarette money!
