Hypnotherapy in Brighton & Hove can help to stop smoking by addressing the subconscious triggers related to your hand-to-mouth habit.*
As one year ends and another begins, goals are often set and resolutions made to change any negative tendencies, with renewed motivation. Much of the past year however has tested many, with new challenges and limitations which have often resulted in a reliance on unhealthy habits, in an attempt to reduce stress or boredom. If you are a smoker, you may well have found that your smoking has increased, especially if you have been without the familiar routine of work or outdoor activities.
Jonathan Conway is a qualified Hypnotherapist and Master NLP Practitioner, with 25 years of professional experience in this field. Hypnosis is a safe and effective therapeutic intervention which can be applied during hypnotherapy sessions in Brighton & Hove at the Conway Practice, or remotely through Zoom, Skype or telephone.* Jonathan will explore the background to your dependence on cigarettes, including when and why you first became a smoker and your reasons now for stopping.*
If smoking is a long-term habit, this frequently starts during the teenage years as a way of following peers or family members. In fact, mirroring the habits of others is often a form of social bonding, even if these are unhealthy and addictive. Stress is also a main contributor to smoking as a mood-enhancing short-term fix, without addressing the underlying reasons for the anxiety.
While your mind is relaxed during hypnotherapy and more open to positive suggestion, Jonathan will introduce new coping mechanisms which will address the hand-to-mouth habitual behaviour of lighting and smoking a cigarette.* These subconscious prompts may be due to stress, boredom or simply an association with certain routines or situations. The nicotine addiction is relatively short-lived and withdrawal symptoms can generally be reduced by relaxation techniques.
Providing you are fully committed to quitting the habit, Hypnotherapy in Brighton & Hove can help you to stop smoking and look forward to a healthier and less stressful life style.*
