Stop Smoking at The Conway Practice, Brighton & HoveDespite widespread awareness of the health risks associated with smoking, many smokers find it difficult to quit for a variety of reasons, including the lack of self-motivation. Failed attempts to stop or a relapse in the past, may have deterred you from trying again in the belief that the outcome will always be the same. Providing you are committed to becoming a non-smoker, support to quit smoking with hypnotherapy in Brighton is available at The Conway Practice.* This therapeutic process can be extremely effective in identifying underlying reasons related to your habit by holistically exploring your dependence.* However, your personal commitment is essential, as you can’t be made to do anything under hypnosis that you don’t genuinely want to achieve.*

One of the primary reasons smokers believe they will never be able to stop, is the nicotine addiction and managing the withdrawal symptoms. In fact, these are relatively short-lived and during hypnotherapy sessions with Jonathan Conway, distraction techniques and new coping mechanisms can be introduced to overcome the initial nicotine cravings.*

Emotional dependence also plays a significant role. Many smokers use cigarettes as a way to deal with stress, anxiety, or depression. The act of smoking can provide a temporary sense of relief or relaxation, making it challenging for you to give up your perceived emotional support system. Calming methods applied during hypnosis will provide a positive and effective way in which to manage emotional tension and negative thoughts.*

Social and environmental factors are also influential. Smoking can be a social activity, and peer pressure or a desire to fit in can reinforce the habit. If your social circle includes other smokers, the constant exposure and shared activity often normalises the behaviour, reducing the motivation to stop. While the conscious mind is relaxed and more receptive to positive suggestion, Jonathan will help you to recognise any negativity stemming from a lack of self-worth and confidence.* Re-framing limiting beliefs with morale-boosting affirmations will enable you to build a new sense of self-esteem and motivation, helping you to finally overcome the barriers to quitting. *

Jonathan Conway has more than 25 years of experience as a highly qualified Hypnotherapist, NLP Master Practitioner and NLP Coach. Hypnotherapy to stop smoking is available at The Conway Practice in Brighton or if preferred, during remote sessions by Zoom, Skype or telephone.*
