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 way to go (as proven by scientific research) which I’ll tell you about on this page. It would be a real privilege to help you break free…

Read on to find out about my stop smoking programme and how I can help you kick the habit and regain control of your health and your life.

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; the New Scientist Magazine reported that hypnosis had the best success rate in helping people quit the habit (1).

This is because addiction is driven more by psychology than physical addiction to substances (like drink, food, drugs or nicotine).

For lasting freedom you need to mentally wean yourself off the addiction. This is what hypnotherapy helps you to do. It helps 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 so much more easily than using willpower alone.

My stop smoking hypnosis programme

The Human Spirit Stop-Smoking Programme is divided into 3 separate hourly sessions…

Session 1

We’ll go through an in-depth questionnaire to help you identify the reasons why you currently smoke and your motivations to quit.

Then I’ll show you a powerful method to begin the process of your breaking free from cravings and emotional triggers. This is something you can practice before the next session.

We’ll also look at any unmet emotional needs to see if any of these might be triggering the habit.

Session 2

I’ll introduce you to a second powerful method (that builds upon what you learned in the first session). This will help you develop the capacity to step out of the ‘trance of addiction’ and see the bigger picture.

It will also help you gather your resolve and resources and build a strong expectation that you can break free from cigarettes and reclaim your health and your life.

We’ll do more direct hypnosis in this session to mentally prepare yourself for the shift toward being a non-smoker.

Session 3

Session 3 assesses how things are progressing from what you’ve learned and practised previously. We build upon any changes made so far.

Using hypnosis, we access the emotional energy needed to help you break free from cigarettesand stay free.

This is more than just stopping smoking; this is about reclaiming your life!

In hypnosis you’ll mentally rehearse living life as a confident non-smoker, easily able to deal with those situations that used to be a problem in the past.

How much does the stop smoking programme cost?

My 3-session stop smoking programme is based on my usual fees of £65 per hour. (2)

So, the 3 stop smoking sessions will cost a total of £195. That’s just a fraction of what you spend every year on cigarettes. (With a packet of 20 cigarettes costing around £10, it’s a simple maths calculation).

You only pay for one session at a time and these can be spread out to suit your budget.

With the average smoker spending over £3000 per year on cigarettes (3) 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.

Ask yourself if you’re willing to keep handing over your hard-earned money to the tobacco CEOs year after year? And at the same time, destroy your health? These are serious questions that demand attention.

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?

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.

After the 3 sessions if, for any reason, you haven’t quit just yet, you can have another session with me totally free of charge (4). 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.

If you’d like to find out more about how I can help you break free from smoking, call me on 07921331707 or email me now to book your first session – and reclaim your life!

Just before you contact me and take a giant leap toward your freedom, you might like to spend a moment reading through a sample of genuine testimonials I’ve received from clients over the years….

Just to note that I’ve obviously withheld full names for reasons of confidentiality and privacy (5).

How I stopped smoking with hypnosis: real client testimonials

“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!” 



Just to say thank you so much for helping me in my quest to give up smoking and cutting down on alcohol. You are a genius. I have not smoked since March (yippee) and now have little desire for my usual white wine.

C.B. Stowupland

“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.” 


Bury St. Edmunds

We are letting you know that since our visit to you we have not had a cigarette! We are feeling very smug about it but we couldn’t have achieved this without your help. THANK YOU.

M.A. and R.D. Milton Keynes

“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!” 



The science behind stopping smoking with hypnosis

But don’t just take my word for it, or the words of my clients…

That New Scientist report back in 1992 was the largest ever piece of research into the different ways of stopping smoking.

And guess what?

They found that hypnosis proved to be the most successful way to quit the habit.

And hypnosis was shown to be five times more successful than using willpower and nicotine replacement products, such as gum and patches.

Since then, even more advanced hypnotic methods have been developed to make success rates even higher.

So, if you are motivated to quit the habit and you apply some of the methods I’ll show you when we work together, there’s every chance that freedom is yours.

Imagine what that means to you…and your family…

Take a giant step toward freedom from cigarettes

You must be serious about quitting smoking or you wouldn’t have read all this.

Perhaps it’s beginning to dawn on you that the time has come. That you owe it to yourself – and your loved ones – to make a real, determined effort to quit.

Hypnosis really could be the key to your freedom.

But what if you can’t get to me in Stowmarket (and don’t like the thought of online therapy sessions)?
