Stop smoking with hypnotherapy in Harley Street*
How can hypnotherapy in Harley Street help you to stop smoking?* If you are a long-term smoker, you may well have found that quitting is extremely challenging, both mentally and physically. Overcoming the nicotine dependence is only part of the problem and is often relatively short lived in comparison with the hand to mouth habit. Hypnotherapy deals with the deeper issues regarding the subconscious prompts which trigger the need to light a cigarette.*
During sessions in hypnosis at the Conway Practice, Harley Street, Jonathan Conway will help you to recognise the reasons behind your need to smoke and to trace the origins of your habit.* Nicotine can quickly become highly addictive, with cravings affecting the brain’s dopamine pathways and although a smoker can begin to use cigarettes as a stress relieving solution, smoking actually increases tension and anxiety giving only brief relief.
If you first began to smoke in order to mirror your peers during the teenage years, you may continue with the habit as a form of social bonding. Exchanging cigarettes is ritualised behaviour as a form of sharing and communication and can replace the need for conversation when lacking social skills and self-confidence.
Hypnotherapy can assist in re-programming any misconception of your self-worth which may have developed over a number of years, replacing negative beliefs with new coping mechanisms.*
You will have become conditioned to situations where you are unable to smoke, such as on a flight or when in a public place. Hypnotherapy in Harley Street will enable you to identify the times where you are at your most vulnerable to reaching for a cigarette and adjust your routine accordingly.* Lifestyle changes will allow you to disassociate smoking with certain activities and times during the day. A healthier regime can be introduced to manage your stress and any negative mood changes and with the help of hypnotherapy your resolve to quit smoking can be strengthened and maintained.*
