Hypnotherapy in Brighton to Stop Smoking at The Conway PracticeHas smoking become your default response to managing stress, and do you feel overly anxious when you are without a cigarette within easy reach? Smoking is a compulsive behaviour which develops over time to become a non-conscious ritual, triggered by more than just a physical craving for tobacco. This hand-to-mouth action is a negative oral fixation, generally associated with different activities and situations, such as during a work break, socialising and at specific times of the day. Beyond the nicotine addiction, smoking is also crucially a psychological habit.  Therapeutic support to stop smoking with hypnosis in Brighton is available at The Conway Practice, where Jonathan will address the subconscious prompts with a holistic approach, exploring all the issues which lead to an automatic response in lighting a cigarette.*

Smoking is frequently found to be an attempt to relieve anxiety, as the instant nicotine rush, provides a brief respite. However, this results in a roller-coaster of emotional relief which is soon followed by physical symptoms of withdrawal and increased cravings, without resolving the root cause of the anxiety. While your mind is relaxed and more receptive to positive suggestion during hypnotherapy, the focus will be on the origin of your smoking dependency.* New coping mechanisms can then be introduced to break the cycle, including relaxation techniques, distraction and calming methods.*

Social smoking is often associated with a lower sense of self-esteem, with the emotional need to bond with fellow smokers in an attempt to feel accepted. Mirroring the actions of others may prompt you to smoke even when there’s no physical craving for nicotine. Hypnosis in Brighton to quit smoking with Jonathan Conway can help you to re-frame any negative thoughts and beliefs which have depleted your confidence during social interactions, and toreplace them with positive affirmations.* With increased motivation and effective stress-management tools, you will finally be able to achieve your goal to stop smoking and enjoy a healthier lifestyle. *
