Quit Smoking at The Conway Practice, Brighton & HoveIf you have tried to quit your smoking habit and failed, you will appreciate how difficult this can be without the right support.  Assistance is available to stop smoking with hypnotherapy in Brighton at The Conway Practice, or during remote sessions by Zoom, Skype or telephone.* Quitting smoking is a significant challenge, often underestimated by those who haven’t experienced it first-hand. The physical, emotional, and social factors make breaking free from the reliance and familiarity with the hand-to-mouth action easier said then done.

Unlike stop smoking programmes which focus solely on the nicotine addiction, therapeutic intervention with hypnosis takes a holistic approach.* During hypnotherapy sessions with Jonathan Conway, the origin of your habit will be explored, together with your emotional dependence on cigarettes as a coping mechanism.* Although the discomfort experienced during nicotine withdrawal is considerable, the physical effects are relatively short-lived. It’s not just the cravings that smokers contend with; there’s a deeply ingrained psychological component to smoking as well. For many, cigarettes become intertwined with daily rituals, providing comfort during moments of stress or boredom. Breaking these associations can feel like severing ties with an emotional prop, leaving a void that’s challenging to fill.

While you are feeling calm and comfortable under hypnosis, Jonathan will help you to recognise the role smoking plays in your daily life, and whether this is to alleviate stress, boost self-confidence confidence in social situations, or simply to pass the time.* Cigarettes often become a trusted companion in navigating life’s complexities. Without them, you may feel at a loss in facing unfamiliar situations and emotions.

Social influences also play a significant role in perpetuating smoking habits. Peer pressure, family influences and cultural conditioning, can be a powerful influence on behaviour. The fear of social exclusion or the loss of a sense of belonging can act as formidable barriers to quitting.

A fear of failure when attempting to stop smoking can mean that in the past a single slip-up has quickly undone weeks or even months of progress, resulting in feelings of guilt and discouragement. Brighton hypnotherapy for smoking cessation provides the opportunity to fully understand your relationship with the habit.* New coping methods and relaxation techniques to reduce stress and anxiety can be introduced, while also replacing negative thoughts and beliefs with positive affirmations for a healthier lifestyle.*
