If you failed to keep your New Year resolution to become a non-smoker you may now feel disheartened and lack the motivation to try again. Support to quit smoking with hypnosis in Brighton is available at The Conway Practice where holistic therapeutic intervention will address the reasons for your smoking habit and why you are finding it difficult to stop.* Jonathan Conway is a qualified Hypnotherapist, NLP Master Practitioner and NLP Coach with 25 years of experience, facilitating positive change in behaviour and thinking patterns.*
A cigarette dependence goes much deeper than a nicotine addiction and during sessions to quit smoking with hypnosis in Brighton with Jonathan your emotional reasons for smoking can be explored, identifying the subconscious prompts to the hand-to-mouth habit.* Stress and anxiety are common triggers when smoking is used as a form of self-medication to calm anxious thoughts and tolerate negative emotions. The relief experienced during the nicotine intake however is short-lived, resulting in a need to smoke more frequently and an increased reliance on smoking as a coping method.
Many smokers will have started the habit due to peer pressure during adolescence which has become a long-term dependence. Smoking can be used as an emotional prop to relieve feelings of vulnerability and unease in social situations, or to bond with fellow smokers and feel accepted within the group. Hypnosis is a safe and effective therapeutic method for re-framing negative beliefs which have prevented you from achieving your stop-smoking goal.* Personalised affirmations will strengthen self-motivation, with relaxation and calming techniques reducing daily stress and subsequently a healthier lifestyle.*
All hypnotherapy sessions are completely confidential and socially distanced face-to-face appointments with Jonathan are available at The Conway Practice in Brighton, or remotely by Zoom, Skype or telephone 07956 855 027
