stop smoking hypnotherapy

HYPNOTHERAPY FOR stopping smoking

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.” (

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.
