As we approach the beginning of a new year you may feel motivated to achieve your goal to becoming a non-smoker. The past year has been testing for many, with limitations and unexpected lifestyle changes, resulting in an emotional dependence on unhealthy habits, endeavouring to reduce boredom or stress. As a smoker, you may well have found that the daily number of cigarettes has increased, especially if you have been isolated from your familiar routines in the workplace or social activities. You can be given help to stop smoking with hypnotherapy in Harley Street at the Conway Practice by exploring the subconscious triggers related to your hand-to-mouth habit.*
Jonathan Conway is a qualified Hypnotherapist and Master NLP Practitioner, with over 25 years of professional experience in this field. Hypnosis is a safe and effective therapeutic intervention which can be applied during face-to-face sessions or remotely through Skype, Zoom or telephone.* Jonathan will address the background to your cigarette dependence, including why and when you began to smoke and your reasons now for stopping.*
Smoking frequently starts during the teenage years and becomes a long-term habit. If others in the family or your peers were smokers, this is perceived to be an acceptable behaviour and mirroring the habits of others is often a form of social bonding, even if this is addictive and unhealthy. Anxiety is also a main contributor to smoking as a mood-enhancing short-term solution, without addressing the underlying reasons for the stress.
While you are comfortable and your mind is relaxed and receptive to positive suggestion during hypnotherapy, Jonathan will introduce simple relaxation techniques and new coping mechanisms to address the hand-to-mouth habitual actions of lighting and smoking a cigarette.* Apart from anxiety, the habit can be a result of boredom or simply an association with certain situations and routines. Contrary to what you may believe, the nicotine addiction can be overcome in a relatively short time and withdrawal symptoms can be managed with relaxation routines and distraction methods.*
Providing you are fully motivated to quitting the habit, support to stop smoking with Hypnotherapy in Harley Street can help you to become a non-smoker and to enjoy a healthier and more stress-free life style.*
