How to Stop Smoking with Hypnosis

Helping people stop smoking with hypnosis is something I’ve been doing since first setting up my practice in 2002. Since then, hundreds of smokers I’ve worked with have become non-smokers. Will you be one of them?

If you’re serious about quitting the habit, hypnosis is the most successful way to do it (as proven by scientific research).

Stop smoking with hypnosis: the best way to kick the habit

It’s easy to understand why so many people these days seek out a hypnotherapist to help them stop smoking. Science is on their side; New Scientist Magazine reported that hypnosis had the best success rate in helping people quit the habit (1).

This is because smoking is more about psychology than physical addiction to nicotine. For lasting freedom you need to mentally wean yourself off the addiction. This is what hypnotherapy helps you to do.

My stop smoking hypnosis programmes help you change your mental association to cigarettes. Once you do that, your relationship to cigarettes changes and along with it, your behaviour. Cravings become a thing of the past.

Using hypnosis also helps you to access the emotional energy needed to make changes stick. This is vitally important in your desire to quit smoking and stay smoke-free.

By using hypnosis I’ll help you access the REM state – the optimal programming state – where you can change beliefs and mental associations to smoking so much more easier compared to using willpower.

“I started smoking at 13, and despite numerous attempts down the years to quit using various methods, I was unsuccessful for any length of time. At 36 I decided it was high time I stopped, so I turned to hypnotherapy. After one session with you, I no longer had the urge to smoke, or even to pick up a cigarette.

I experienced none of the usual withdrawal symptoms or cravings, and found it very easy to stop. There is no doubt that I am now a non-smoker for life. I felt some health benefits almost immediately, and this will only get better over time – and my purse is healthier too!” 



Why do you want to quit smoking?

With the average smoker in the UK now spending over £5000 per year on cigarettes (2) maybe you’ve decided that you’re no longer willing to part with all that money every year.

[Use this ‘quit smoking calculator tool’ to work out how much the smoking habit is costing you and how much you’ll save as a non-smoker]

Or maybe your motivation to stop smoking is more about your health? Perhaps you have a persistent cough or feel breathless at times? Maybe you’re worried about your kids breathing in your second-hand cigarette smoke?

Perhaps you’re fed up being controlled by an addiction to nicotine?

Whatever your reasons, surely it’s time to rebel against the tyranny of the tobacco industry and all the ways it’s been stealing your money and your life?

“I want to thank you so much for the help you gave me to stop smoking. I would never have believed it could be so easy but you made me see what I was doing to myself and gave me the confidence to stop. It has been nearly three months and I feel like a new person. I have joined a gym and go 3 /4 times a week with the money I am saving from not smoking and am really enjoying exercising, my breathing is much easier and the tightness in my chest has gone.

I no longer wake up in the morning coughing and seem to have a better sense of taste and my food even tastes better. It is great to know that I, and my clothes do not smell of smoke and I do not feel an outcast anymore. 

I cannot believe having been a smoker for 35 years that hypnotherapy would help me stop with such ease, especially as I gave up for four years but craved a cigarette every time I saw someone smoke; now it doesn’t bother me when colleagues at work light up. I just know I will never smoke again. I cannot thank you enough…many, many thanks.”

3 different stop smoking hypnosis programmes

I now offer a choice of stop smoking programmes to suit your needs. We can discuss which programme would be best for you in a Free Discovery Session.

Programmes 1 and 2 below can be done with me in person or online.

Programme #1: 3 separate hourly sessions

If you’d prefer to wean yourself off your dependence on smoking bit by bit (which is the best way for some people) I recommend taking my ‘3 session approach’…

The sessions are spread a week or two apart so that you gradually break free from your dependence on smoking and segue into life as a non-smoker.

So, rather than quitting in a single session (see below) this can be seen as a more gentle approach where your subconscious mind is reprogrammed bit by bit with new information and ways to deal with triggers.

Programme #2: A single ‘fast-track to freedom’ session

If you’re ready to kick the habit in one go you can book a single 3 hour session. I call this the ‘Fast Track to Freedom’…

In this single session we cover the same things as we do in the separate sessions but it’s all done in one hit. It can be an intensive experience and there is much to absorb in one session so it’s not for everyone.

I will use my professional judgement in our free consultation to assess whether this would be the best method for you.

Programme #3: an online stop smoking course

Designed by my hypnotherapy tutors, this 10-Step Online Course means that you can work at your own pace. It includes 10 separate hypnosis downloads and a comprehensive PDF workbook to track your progress to freedom from smoking.

Free stop smoking follow-up session

Although I can’t promise that you’ll quit smoking (no therapist can guarantee that), I can promise to give 100% of my expertise and commitment to help you break free from the habit. I hope that you’d give the same. It really is a team game.

But even better…

If, for any reason, you haven’t quit just yet after working with me, you can have another session totally free of charge (3). (Most people I see never need that extra ‘booster’ session but it’s there if you need it).

In that extra session we’d tie up loose ends, make some more ‘mental adjustments’ and look at possible other factors that might be causing the need to smoke.

“It has been 7 months now since I came to see you for help with giving up smoking and I can report that I have not had 1 single cigarette in that time, despite working with and socialising with smokers!

I have smoked on and off (mostly on!) for nearly 30 years and although I have stopped smoking 3 times, I always went back to it and never really believed that I could kick the habit completely. I tried most forms of NRT – gum, patches and tablets and although they helped with the physical cravings it was the emotional side that I needed help with – I needed my brain to be “programmed” to forget that I smoke and that is exactly how I felt after my hypnotherapy sessions.

Despite some fairly stressful times recently when I would traditionally have started smoking again, I could draw on some of the information and scenarios that I received from you and that certainly convinced me not to start again! Thank you for giving me my life back and no longer to be “ruled” by smoking. I certainly feel much healthier and never give nicotine any thought, other than being relieved that finally I no longer need it – there is life after smoking!”
