If you’re asked to explain to others why you are unable to stop smoking, you may well say it’s due to the nicotine addiction. While this may play a significant part in the initial days without a cigarette, it’s unlikely to be the underlying reason why you continue to smoke. Breaking the smoking habit with hypnotherapy in Brighton is available at the Conway Practice, where Jonathan Conway will apply a holistic therapeutic approach to identify the triggers which prompt you to rely on a cigarette in certain situations and particular times of the day.*
These subconscious cues may have developed over a considerable length of time and can often be traced back to the teenage years when smoking became a way in which to bond with peers and to feel more mature and socially confident. This experimentation during adolescence frequently continues into adulthood, with little or no conscious awareness of the original reasons for becoming a smoker.
Hypnosis is a pleasant and relaxing state of mind, similar to a daydream where you remain in control throughout the therapeutic session.* You may be relying on smoking to reduce anxiety and stress, even though the relief is short-lived. Or perhaps you smoke to feel more socially accepted if your friends and work colleagues are smokers. Jonathan will explore your underlying motivation to smoke and the role that has in your life.* During hypnotherapy sessions new coping strategies can be introduced, helping you to divert your mind to more positive and healthier routines and behaviour.* Relaxation techniques and calming methods will assist not only in managing the initial withdrawal symptoms when your physical body is craving nicotine, they will also enable you to cope more effectively during stressful situations.*
If you are firmly committed to become a non-smoker, breaking the smoking habit with hypnotherapy in Brighton can help you break the habit. Book an appointment for a stop smoking session with Jonathan Conway at The Conway Practice for either a face-to-face session, or remotely by Skype, Zoom or telephone if preferred.*
