If you are a long-term smoker, quitting the habit may seem daunting and perhaps you’ve tried to give up before without success. Hypnotherapy can help you to stop smoking by safe therapeutic intervention with Jonathan at the Conway Practice in Brighton.* If you are unable to travel or would prefer the appointments to be carried out from the familiar surroundings of your home, stop smoking support can be provided by Skype, Zoom or telephone.
As the first step in your hypnosis in Brighton session, Jonathan will discuss why you want to quit smoking and what you feel have been the barriers to stopping. As with most hand-to-mouth habits, there are generally subconscious triggers which prompt you to light a cigarette. This may be something as simple as seeing someone smoking on T.V or mirroring the actions of a fellow smoker. You may not have a nicotine craving at that moment, but nevertheless feel the urge to smoke as a social interaction. The adrenalin buzz when nicotine enters the body is experienced as energising and pleasurable but this feeling is short-lived, leaving you wanting those same feelings again. The physical addiction to nicotine can be overcome in a relatively brief period of time, however the psychological dependence needs to be addressed and overcome.*
Hypnosis in Brighton provides the opportunity to identify the behavioural patterns when you are most likely to smoke.* This may be associated to certain times of the day or to activities where you are accustomed to smoking. In the same way in which you will have conditioned yourself to accept when you are restricted in lighting a cigarette, your conscious mind can be re-programmed to consider all situations to be a smoke-free zone.*
Stress can be a major contributor to a reliance on smoking to calm any anxious feelings. During hypnotherapy sessions, Jonathan will introduce calming methods and new coping mechanisms, to help you reduce anxiety and to deal with any negative emotions.*
If you are fully committed to being free of the habit, help to stop smoking with hypnosis in Brighton or by remote connection with Jonathan, provides the therapeutic support to achieve your goal.* Recommendations from clients are testimony to the professionalism and confidentiality during the hypnotherapy sessions.
