Stop Smoking Programme

  • All inclusive, R2400.00 (one on one).

Smoking is a mental and physical habit which is easier to give up using hypnosis. Your emotions are involved as well. Your subconscious mind is open to suggestions for change when you are hypnotised, so this is a good way to break the habit forever.

Our four session process helps you to become aware of the emotional “rewards” which keep you tied to smoking. This releases the habit in your subconscious mind and creates lasting change.

About hypnosis

  • Hypnosis is an altered state of consciousness, whereby it’s easier to access your subconscious, which is where all your emotions, thoughts, feelings and ways of behaving originate.
  • Hypnotherapy is used to help overcome ways of thinking and behaving that no longer serve you, like smoking.
  • Put another way, hypnosis essentially provides a safe environment in which to change your smoking habit, which makes it easier to give up and become healthy.
  • What hypnosis is:
    • a safe way to make the changes you want to make,
      see it as a way to reprogram yourself,
    • a relaxed and extremely focused mind state,
    • an altered state of consciousness, where you still have total control over what you think and feel.
  • Hypnosis is not
    • a way to control others or make them do things they do not want to do.

About the programme

Our Stop Smoking program is unique in that it not only deals with the mental and physical addiction, it also allows you to explore the emotional dynamic tied to smoking, and this is where the ‘addiction’ lies.

  • Smoking is used to deal with stress, taking a break, to relax, etc.
  • This program will provide you with effective techniques/tools to deal with stress, or take a break or relax, or deal with your emotions.
  • Effectively you replace a bad habit with a good habit. This is so much more effective in hypnosis, because the subconscious mind is open to the suggestions for change.
  • Normally we have a barrier to any new “stuff” coming in. Hypnosis lifts the barrier to allow new information in.
  • The program also allows for the individuality of smoking dynamics.
