The past two years have tested many, with new limitations and unplanned changes to daily routines. This has often resulted in a reliance on unhealthy habits in an attempt to reduce anxiety or boredom. If you are a smoker, without the familiar routine of outdoor activities or work responsibilities your smoking may well have increased, especially with the freedom to light a cigarette whenever you choose. Hypnotherapy in Brighton for help to stop smoking at the Conway Practice will provide the support to help you by recognising the subconscious triggers related to your hand-to-mouth habit.*
Jonathan Conway is a qualified Hypnotherapist and Master NLP Practitioner, with 25 years of professional experience in this field. Hypnosis is an effective and completely safe therapeutic intervention which can be applied during one-to-one sessions with Jonathan at his practice rooms in Brighton, or remotely through Skype, Zoom or telephone.* The background to your dependence on cigarettes, will be discussed and the reasons why you have found it difficult to give up the habit will be explored.*
If you are a long-term smoker, this may have started during adolescence due to peer pressure, mirroring other family members or as display of independence.
Smoking can also be a form of social bonding, despite the awareness of this being unhealthy and addictive. Stress is often a main contributor to the smoking habit as a short-term mood-enhancing solution, with an avoidance of addressing any underlying reasons for the anxiety.
While your mind is more relaxed and receptive to positive suggestion, any negative thoughts and self-beliefs can be replaced with new coping mechanisms, helping to overcome the hand-to-mouth habitual behaviour of lighting and smoking a cigarette.* These subconscious prompts may be due to boredom, anxiety or simply an association with certain situations and routines. The nicotine addiction is relatively short-term and relaxation techniques can generally be effective in reducing the withdrawal symptoms.
With a firm personal commitment to quitting smoking Hypnotherapy in Brighton can help you to become a non-smoker, leaving you free to look forward to a less stressful and healthier life style.*
