A recent study has shown that patients treated with one stop smoking hypnotherapy session were more likely to be non-smokers at 6 months compared with patients that use nicotine replacement therapy, or try to quit with just will power alone.
“Frank Schmidt and research student Chockalingham Viswesvaran from the university of Iowa used a meta-analysis, utilising the results of more than 600 studies totalling nearly 72,000 people.
The results, which were published in the Journal of Applied Psychology and included 48 studies of hypnosis covering 6000 smokers, clearly showed that hypnosis, to use the same terminology as the quit counsellor, was three times more effective than NRT.” (hypnos.info)
The addictive part of smoking is not as difficult to overcome as the media would have us to believe. If your intent to give up is high and your general stress levels are low then you can expect to see success with smoking cessation hypnotherapy treatment.
At Truro Hypnotherapy Practice, we offer a one-off two hour appointment for smoking cessation. We talk through your motivations for stopping, explain how the brain works in relation to nicotine addiction and gaining control over the part of us that wants to smoke. The trance part of the stop smoking hypnotherapy will be slightly longer than normal and you’ll receive a free CD for future use to keep your stress levels low.

"I had Solution Focused Hypnotherapy treatment with Natalie at the end of last year and felt the benefits almost immediately. Apart from the comforting feeling of knowing that someone has your interests at heart, I suddenly felt motivated again. It’s amazing how changing the way you think and focus can make such a dramatic impact on your daily life! I noticed other changes too, such as a new enthusiasm for exercise and a change in my diet. I found it so helpful and uplifting that I have returned for more! I thoroughly recommend this treatment and Natalie as a practitioner"...

"At my first appointment, I found Natalie really easy to talk to and she explained the process of hypnotherapy to me clearly. I was quite nervous about the therapy at first, but Natalie made me feel relaxed and at ease. Just after a few sessions, I have managed to walk the route again where the first panic attack happened, and even managed to stop and take a few photos to show that I had actually done it.
I feel a lot calmer and in control, and also less anxious and more confident within my everyday life. I am very grateful for all that she has done, and would definitely recommend Natalie for anyone looking for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy"...

“I haven’t smoked since having hypnotherapy with 7 weeks ago Natalie, which feels amazing. I did still crave for at least the first month, but something had changed in me and I just knew I would never smoke again.
I was quite skeptical about having hypnotherapy, but it has worked for me and I know I would never have been able to quit on my own. Natalie is friendly and professional and put me at ease straight away”...
