Giving up smoking cigarettes is not easy. It’s a challenge that many of us face. You don’t have to do it alone. Hypnotherapy is a well-established technique to help you ditch the fags and start living a healthier, happier life!
There will always be an excuse to put off quitting.
The best time to stop is NOW!
I don’t need to preach to you about the benefits of stopping smoking. If you’ve made it to this website, you’re already looking for ways to quit. There are so many health benefits to giving up cigarettes; improved lung function, reduced risk of cancer and heart disease, younger-looking skin (to name a few). You’ll also be relieving yourself of a huge financial burden, allowing you to spend your hard-earned cash on things that you love.
You might have tried nicotine replacements; such as patches, nicotine gum or inhalers. You might have tried to give up smoking using willpower alone.
Smoking cigarettes is more than just a nicotine addiction. For those who have smoked for a long period of time, there are many things that we associate with smoking cigarettes;
A cigarette with a coffee in the morning.
The cigarette after you’ve finished eating.
The one when you get in the car after a long day at work…
This makes giving up much harder; the habit is ingrained in your routines and your day-to-day life.
Under hypnosis, you’re in a much more relaxed state. We can then work with your subconscious mind to encourage you to break free from smoking. Different techniques can be used, such as visualising a smoke-free life. We’ll find ways to change your daily habits, so that cigarettes are no longer part of your routine. We’ll look at how you can overcome smoking cravings and truly break free from this poisonous habit.
You will be in a “hypnotic trance,” but that’s nothing to be worried about! Hypnosis is a very gentle practice that can be used to alter your thoughts and feelings towards smoking. It can allow you to see smoking as the harmful addiction it is, rather than a normal part of your life.
Hypnotherapy is not a magic wand. Giving up cigarettes is never easy. It will require effort on your part.
The decision to quit smoking has to be your decision. You have to want to give up cigarettes for good for hypnotherapy to work. For those who truly want to quit, we’ve had some fantastic results with previous clients.
The most important thing is that you’re 100% committed to giving up smoking. You need to be ready. If there’s still a voice at the back of your mind thinking, “Oh but I do still enjoy a cigarette,” then your chance of success is lower. If you’re giving up smoking to please somebody else, you’re less likely to give up for good.
Hypnotherapy can provide the help and support you need to stop smoking. We will work together to change your mindset and your feelings towards smoking.
I work together with clients from my Huddersfield hypnotherapy practice. I offer one-to-one sessions with on-going telephone support. The smoking cessation program includes:
We’re confident that hypnosis can help you quit smoking. However, if you start smoking again within four weeks of your hypnotherapy session, you’ll be eligible for a second session free of charge.

Auriculotherapy for Stopping Smoking
Auriculotherapy is a form of the ancient Chinese medicine of acupuncture, Dr Paul Nogier is considered the grandfather of auriculotherapy and since the 1950's has developed this therapy. The ear is considered a microsystem, the same as the foot in reflexology. All of the body's nervous system run through the ear.
The various organs, muscles and skeleton parts are represented on the ear as well as various systems like the Central Nervous System, Endocrine System to name a few. Over the years of developing this therapy, they have also located points that have an effect on nicotine, mouth sensations, the hunger point and many more. There are over 300 points on the ear, and there have been over 280 protocols created to help with everything from weight control, menopause, anxiety, PTSD to Pain relief.
By pinning various points of the ear with the semi-permanent needles this helps to assist with cravings, desire to overeat and with mood. There is a specific Nicotine point that has been found to assist with stopping smoking.
When added to my Stop Smoking programme, as well as the initial 2-hour session, where the first treatment will be given, there will also be 3 other 30 min. sessions where the auriculotherapy with be applied again as well as a mini hypnotherapy session to completely boost the hypnotherapy.
