As a smoker, if you have reached the point where you are committed to quitting the habit you might well have found that you can’t achieve this easily on your own. Family and friends may encourage you to stop, but overcoming a psychological reliance on cigarettes can be far more challenging that the relatively short-term physical affects of nicotine withdrawal. Hypnotherapy in Harley Street for smoking cessation at The Conway Practice provides safe therapeutic intervention to help you to become a non-smoker.*
While you are under the relaxed state of hypnosis, Jonathan Conway will explore your reasons for smoking and the origin of when and why this may have been initiated.* It’s common for the habit to begin during the teenage years, when there is a high sensitivity to being accepted by peers and risky behaviour is considered to be pleasurable, with no concern for negative consequences. In the long term for many, smoking can become a way of relieving stress and anxiety, giving only brief relief and increasing the reliance on the hand-to-mouth habit.
In recent years the social acceptance of smokers has changed, with greater awareness of the damage to health and the introduction of no-smoking restrictions in the workplace and public spaces. In the same way in which you will have conditioned yourself not to smoke in certain environments, hypnotherapy in Harley Street can help to quit smoking by re-programming your stored memories, enabling you to relearn impulse control. In recognising the subconscious cues that trigger the need to light a cigarette, new coping mechanisms and relaxation techniques can be introduced to manage anxiety and stress.*
Hypnosis can be beneficial in changing your perspective towards smoking, empowering you to develop more positive behaviour and increased motivation.*
