Happy non-smokers:

 

Dear Balbir, The party last night was a breeze and I wasn’t stressed at all about hanging out with the smokers. In fact, instead of racing out of the door with them, I was the one who closed it to stop the smoke coming in. That must be a first for me. Thanks!
ES, Teacher, age 50 (smoker since age 16)

 

Thank you so much for helping me to quit smoking. I am amazed at how it worked so well just after one session. I can now be a good role for my young daughter and am feeling much happier.
RC, Mother

 

I cannot thank you enough for helping me stop smoking. I am able to carry out my work easily and get more done as focus is much easier and my health is improving.
PS, Manager

 

Thank you so much for helping me to finally stop smoking. I had tried and  failed for many years to do so with different methods. Whatever you did worked brilliantly and 2 years later it is a thing of the past for me.
LK, Business Owner

 

Since stopping 11 months ago I am feeling really good about myself, in control and happier. Thank you very much!
AJ, Trainer

How long will it take for me stop smoking?

 

It doesn’t matter how long you have been smoking or how many you have been smoking – just one session is what it takes when you really, really have had enough and want to stop smoking forever! The session is approximately 2 hours, at the end of which you are a non-smoker. Remember – you have to want to stop smoking for yourself not because someone else wants you to.

 

What happens in a session?

 

Initially, we spend a bit of time getting to know more about how you relate to smoking and what stopping will mean to you.  After this, hypnotherapy  is used to make suggestions/reprogram your unconscious triggers and responses so that you respond more positively to previous situations in which you would have smoked.

 

What is hypnotherapy?

 

For stop smoking hypnotherapy, the therapist guides you in to a deep state of relaxation. All you have to do is to sit / lie down, listen and go with what is being said. There is no getting it wrong or right. During hypnosis, your body and conscious mind relaxes deeply. Your conscious mind becomes less alert and your unconscious mind becomes more focused. When you are in this altered state of awareness, your conscious mind quietens and your subconscious mind is open for positive change and what you once believed wasn’t possible, becomes possible, so that you achieve the goal you want for yourself to feel healthier and happier.

 

How much will it cost?

 

How much have you spent over the years on smoking plus the cost to your health? What could you have done with all that money if you had saved it?

To stop smoking, now, in one session, forever, is much cheaper than you may have been expecting, saving you loads of money that you can put towards treating yourself … a holiday, a massage, new shoes, new handbag … the possibilities are endless!

£270 for a two hour session.

Included in that price is a follow up one hour session within 4 weeks should you need it. Most clients don’t claim this extra session as they discover they do not need it although they feel reassured that it’s there in case they need it.

 

What are the financial benefits?

 

Those who smoke between 20 to 40 cigarettes a day will save around £2,500 per year by becoming a non-smoker. You will also save 30% on your life insurance costs.

That means you could save well over £100,000 during your lifetime by simply becoming a non-smoker!

The Research

New Scientist vol 136 issue 1845 – 31 October 92  (preview)

Here is the full article for you to read:

Hypnosis is the most effective way of giving up smoking, according to the  largest ever scientific comparison of ways of breaking the habit. Willpower, it turns out, counts for very little.

Smokers are coming under increasing pressure to quit. Earlier this month the Institute of Actuaries published the results of a study it commissioned which showed that the mortality rate for smokers is twice as high as for non-smokers, and that on average, a smoker dies 6 years earlier than a non-smoker. Surveys suggest that three in four smokers would like to give up, according to the anti-smoking campaign Action on Smoking and Health (ASH).

To find the most effective way to give up smoking, Frank Schmidt and research student Chockalingam Viswesvaran of the University of Iowa carried out a meta-analysis, statistically combining the results of more than 600 studies covering almost 72 000 people from America, Scandinavia and elsewhere in Europe.

By combining the results from so many separate studies, the meta-analysis enables the real effectiveness of each technique to be picked out from the statistical ‘noise’ that often blights studies involving smaller numbers of subjects.

The results published in the current issue of the Journal of Applied Psychology, show that the average success rate for all methods was 19 per cent: that is, only about one in five smokers is likely to succeed using methods covered by the study.

Patients told that they had serious cardiac disorders, and so a clear incentive to stop immediately, had the highest quitting rate, at 36 per cent. But for most smokers the most effective technique was hypnosis, in which smokers go into a state of deep relaxation and listen to suggestive tapes. The analysis of treatment by hypnosis, which included 48 studies covering over 6000 smokers, gave an average success rate of 30 per cent for this method.

Combination’ techniques, combining, for example, exercise and breathing therapy came second with a success rate of 29 per cent. Smoke aversion, in which smokers have their own warm, stale cigarette smoke blown back into their faces, achieved a 25 per cent success rate, and followed by acupuncture at 24 per cent. 

The least successful method turned out to be advice from GPs, which appears to convince virtually no one to give up. Sheer willpower proved little better, with a success rate of only 6 per cent. Self-help, in the form of books or mail-order advice, achieved modest success – around 9 per cent, while nicotine gum was a little better at 10 per cent.

We found that involvement of physicians did not have as big an impact as we expected,’ said Schmidt ‘We speculate that the reason is that it is the content of the treatment that matters, and not the status of the person giving it.’  David Pollock, director of ASH, said he was surprised by the success of hypnosis, which anecdotal evidence had suggested was not very effective. One organisation not surprised by the results is the British Society of Medical & Dental Hypnosis. Christopher Pattinson, the society’s academic chairman, said that current hypnosis techniques are a far cry from their popular image of music-hall tricks involving swinging fob watches.

The latest relaxation techniques achieve success rates of up to 60 per cent from a single session, he said.  Richard Doll, the epidemiologist who carried out the pioneering studies of the risk of smoking, said that the apparent success of hypnosis and the high quitting rate of patients with heart disease backed his own observations.  He added, however, that he was somewhat surprised by the low success rate of those who resorted to willpower alone: ‘The majority of people find it not too difficult to give up,’ he said. ‘The only way to succeed is to want to do it enough.  You have got to really appreciate what the risk is. I smoked and gave up without too much difficulty.’

Please note that the majority of my clients quit smoking after just one session. However, if a follow up session is required, within a 4 week period, there is no extra charge.
