Keep your New Year’s resolution to stop smoking with hypnotherapy.*
If your New Year’s resolution is to become a non-smoker, you may be concerned about how you can remain committed and achieve your goal. Trying to deal with any long-term habit can without doubt be a tough challenge and this is even more difficult when an addictive substance is part of the problem. Hypnotherapy can help you to stop smoking, by strengthening your self-motivation and addressing the deeper reasons why you have found it so hard to give up.*
Stress is a high contributor to continuing a smoking habit, with the misconception that cigarettes are the only option to reducing anxiety. During the hypnosis sessions at the Conway Practice, Jonathan will assist you in identifying the subconscious triggers which prompt you to smoke at certain times of the day and in specific circumstances. Understanding why you first became a smoker and why you are now ready to stop can be extremely helpful in overcoming a habit which has become part of your daily life.
It’s common to smoke during adolescence as a form of social bonding, enabling you to feel part of a group with peers who are already smoking, in the belief that this is normal ‘adult’ behaviour. The need to be socially accepted often then continues by mirroring the habits of others and sharing cigarettes in a communal smoking environment. This is a psychological addiction which can be more difficult to deal with than the physical dependence on nicotine which is relatively short-lived. Hypnotherapy can be very effective in addressing any lack of self-worth which may be limiting your natural ability to express your own personality, due to a fear of failure or rejection.*
If you smoke as an antidote to stress, hypnosis is a completely safe therapy to relieve anxiety in a natural way by re-programming any negative thought processes which have been blocking previous attempts to stop smoking.* New coping mechanisms will be introduced which will give you the motivation to finally become a non-smoker with a healthier lifestyle model.*

Quit the smoking habit with hypnotherapy*
No one can deny that giving up cigarettes can be a tough challenge, but help to stop smoking with hypnotherapy can make this easier to achieve.* Habitual behaviour doesn’t happen overnight and as with all habits there are sub-conscious prompts which are established over time. While not all habits are harmful, when the physical addiction to nicotine is combined with the emotional sensation of a hand-to-mouth action, the routine of smoking a cigarette can be difficult to break.
Hypnotherapy at the Conway Practice can help you to quit the habit by first identifying the triggers which urge you to smoke.* Stress is a major contributor to a dependence on smoking, with the belief that this is the only way to relax and reduce anxiety, even though the effects are short-lived. However, stress isn’t the only reason and much depends on your history as a smoker and how it first began.
During sessions with hypnosis, Jonathan will help you to trace the origins of your smoking habit.* You may have tried your first cigarette during your teenage years when smoking was fashionable and you were influenced by your peers in the belief that this enabled you to integrate and to be accepted within the group. This need for social bonding if often a barrier to becoming a non-smoker if you are constantly in the company of smokers. The urge to light a cigarette can often be triggered when there is a sub-conscious response to mirroring the action of others, even if you have no physical need for nicotine at the time.
By identifying the deeper issues to your smoking habit and addressing the psychological reasons for an emotional dependence on cigarettes, new coping-mechanisms can be established. Hypnotherapy provides a completely safe and medication-free solution to reducing stress and improving self-confidence, in both professional and social situations.* Introducing new pathways with positive ‘stop smoking‘ affirmations will set you on track to achieving your goal to quitting the unhealthy and costly habit.*

How you can get help to stop smoking with hypnotherapy in Brighton*
As we come to the end of this year’s Stoptober campaign, if you haven’t succeeded in quitting, there’s no need to feel that failure means you should forget about giving up the habit. Help is available to stop smoking with hypnotherapy in Brighton at the Conway Practice, by identifying the subconscious prompts which trigger your need to smoke.*
The addiction to nicotine is only part of the desire for a cigarette and the difficulty in stopping. The actual habit may well have its origin in an attempt to follow your peers, or have originated as a normal pattern of behaviour growing up in a family where parents and siblings were smokers. This early influence is then likely to be stored in the non-conscious mind and continued into adulthood. Hypnotherapy in Brighton & Hove will deal with the reasons for your dependence on smoking and how these can be replaced by introducing new coping-mechanisms.*
While you are relaxed and at ease during hypnosis, the pathway to these beliefs can be opened up, enabling you to recognise when and where you are most likely to smoke and what part smoking has played in your life.* You may smoke in order to deal with stressful situations, believing that this will be the only way of coping.
Jonathan Conway will guide you through stress-reducing and deep relaxation methods which can be applied not only when you feel the need to smoke, but also whenever you are tense and anxious.
If your habit is triggered by specific environments, such as while socialising with other smokers, this can be due to a misbelief that you will only be accepted into the group if you mirror their behaviour. Hypnotherapy in Brighton can also help you to address any feelings of low-self worth and lack of confidence, replacing negative conceptions with a positive mindset and increased self esteem.*
In the same way in which you have conditioned yourself not to smoke at certain times of the day, especially in places where smoking is prohibited, through hypnotherapy it will be possible to make an agreement with your unconscious mind to extend this conditioning throughout the whole day, with an affirmation that you are now a non-smoker.*

Quit smoking in Stoptober with hypnotherapy in Brighton*
The month of ‘Stoptober’ is with us once again, when smokers are encouraged to seek the support needed to quit. You may have previously attempted to break the habit and failed, or perhaps you are about to make your first effort to become a non-smoker. Help to stop smoking with hypnotherapy in Brighton is available at the Conway Practice.
You may not have considered hypnosis and are unsure what to expect. Hypnotherapy looks beyond the nicotine addiction and focuses primarily on your reasons for smoking and why you find it difficult to stop.* You may believe that the nicotine dependence is impossible to overcome, whereas it’s the hand-to-mouth prompt, triggered by the subconscious which needs to be erased. Nicotine withdrawal is relatively short-lived, but replacing the habit of reaching for a cigarette can be far more challenging.
During the first session of hypnotherapy in Brighton & Hove, while you are comfortable and deeply relaxed, Jonathan will establish why you are motivated to stop smoking now and what cigarettes represent for you. Even with the best intentions, family or friends can’t force you to become a non-smoker and neither can anyone be made to do something against their will while under hypnosis. Tracing your journey as a smoker may reveal that the reason you first started to smoke, such as peer pressure or simple curiosity, is different to your reasons for the dependence now.
You will have conditioned yourself not to smoke in certain situations such as during a long flight, in the work place, or while in enclosed public spaces. Hypnotherapy in Brighton & Hove can enable you to apply this conditioning to times when you are prompted to light a cigarette by recognising the triggers such as stress, social mirroring when in the company of other smokers, or as a distraction when your mind and hands are idle and you are feeling bored.*
Hypnosis in Brighton & Hove opens up a pathway to reach the negative thoughts stored over time, allowing the introduction of new coping mechanisms. Practices for self management of stress and anxiety will reduce the need for harmful substances and health damaging habits, without the need for medication or nicotine replacement products. Visualisation techniques will enable you to see yourself as a non-smoker, with all the many benefits this will bring.

How hypnotherapy in Brighton can help you to quit smoking*
Is this the first time you feel ready to quit smoking or have you tried to give up several times before and not succeeded? If you are really committed to being free of the habit, help to stop smoking in Brighton with hypnotherapy can be very effective with long-term benefits.*
During hypnosis sessions with Jonathan at the Conway Practice in Brighton & Hove, the reasons behind your need to smoke will be identified and addressed. You may not be consciously aware of the triggers and the related factors which compel you to reach for a cigarette. Hypnotherapy looks beyond the addiction to nicotine and while you are deeply relaxed and your mind is more open to positive suggestion, the origins of your smoking habit and why you continue to smoke can be established.*
Do you depend on a cigarette as a means to relax when you are anxious and finding it difficult to cope, or is smoking a social habit which enables you to feel more confident and to bond socially with others? An attempt to quit can often be self-sabotaged simply by accepting a cigarette when a fellow smoker offers one, even if you have no craving for nicotine at the time. How many times have you been determined that this will be the last cigarette from the last packet you will ever buy, only to lose your resolve in the belief that smoking is the only solution to manage a stressful situation?
Using the hypnotic approach, positive thought processes and new coping mechanisms can be introduced.* Retraining the way you think and how you can overcome the hand-to-mouth smoking habit, will enable you to initiate a positive strategy to increase your motivation to become a non-smoker. Jonathan will guide you in relaxation and stress-reducing techniques to help you to cope with the initial cravings and manage tough situations without the need for a cigarette.*

Quit smoking with the help of hypnotherapy in Brighton*
If you want to stop smoking but are finding it a challenge, you may have tried various methods without success. Hypnotherapy in Brighton for smoking cessation provides support with a natural and completely safe solution to break the habit, without the need for medication or nicotine replacements.*
Hypnosis awakens the subconscious while you are deeply relaxed and more open to positive suggestion. The feeling is similar to a daydream, when you are in control but your mind is in an altered state of consciousness. You may be able to relate this to driving a car, where you are unaware of the journey but have automatically reacted to all the required actions and subconsciously read all the traffic signs. During hypnotherapy sessions at the Conway Practice in Brighton & Hove, Jonathan will help you to change your behavioural patterns and any negative thinking.*
Your reasons for smoking will be assessed, introducing new coping mechanisms to help you resolve your dependence on cigarettes. The habit might have it’s origins in peer pressure during the teenage years, but the long-term addiction can be due to other influences such as anxiety, boredom or depression. Smoking is often seen as a way to reduce stress levels, even though the relief may be brief and actually increases tension with symptoms of nicotine withdrawal.
The affects of nicotine dependence are relatively short-lived compared with the actual hand-to-mouth habit. You may feel that you use a cigarette as a prop when socialising, or when you are in the company of other smokers and want to fit in. Hypnotherapy in Brighton & Hove can enable you to look at your problems from a different perspective and help you to manage your stress by introducing relaxation techniques which can be applied whenever you feel under pressure and unable to cope.*
Not only will your addiction to smoking be addressed, Jonathan will also discuss why you now want to stop. This may be due to health concerns or the amount of money which is symbolically going up in smoke. Pressure from friends or family won’t be sufficient to break the habit; the determination to quit must come from you alone. No one can make you become a non-smoker, if you’re not completely committed to stopping. Neither can you be made to do anything against your will while you are under hypnosis.
If you are ready to stop smoking, hypnotherapy in Brighton can help you to achieve your objective.* Call Jonathan Conway today on 07956 855027.
Stop smoking with hypnotherapy in Harley Street*
How can hypnotherapy in Harley Street help you to stop smoking?* If you are a long-term smoker, you may well have found that quitting is extremely challenging, both mentally and physically. Overcoming the nicotine dependence is only part of the problem and is often relatively short lived in comparison with the hand to mouth habit. Hypnotherapy deals with the deeper issues regarding the subconscious prompts which trigger the need to light a cigarette.*
During sessions in hypnosis at the Conway Practice, Harley Street, Jonathan Conway will help you to recognise the reasons behind your need to smoke and to trace the origins of your habit.* Nicotine can quickly become highly addictive, with cravings affecting the brain’s dopamine pathways and although a smoker can begin to use cigarettes as a stress relieving solution, smoking actually increases tension and anxiety giving only brief relief.
If you first began to smoke in order to mirror your peers during the teenage years, you may continue with the habit as a form of social bonding. Exchanging cigarettes is ritualised behaviour as a form of sharing and communication and can replace the need for conversation when lacking social skills and self-confidence.
Hypnotherapy can assist in re-programming any misconception of your self-worth which may have developed over a number of years, replacing negative beliefs with new coping mechanisms.*
You will have become conditioned to situations where you are unable to smoke, such as on a flight or when in a public place. Hypnotherapy in Harley Street will enable you to identify the times where you are at your most vulnerable to reaching for a cigarette and adjust your routine accordingly.* Lifestyle changes will allow you to disassociate smoking with certain activities and times during the day. A healthier regime can be introduced to manage your stress and any negative mood changes and with the help of hypnotherapy your resolve to quit smoking can be strengthened and maintained.*

Help to quit smoking with hypnotherapy in Highgate*
The affects of stopping smoking aren’t simply physical; they are also psychological and emotional. Understanding the reasons behind the need to smoke can be the key to giving up the habit for good. At the Conway Practice in Highgate, Jonathan will help you to trace the origins of when you first became a smoker and why you have found it so difficult to stop. Hypnotherapy provides a natural way in which to overcome the addiction and to recognise the sub-conscious triggers to lighting a cigarette.*
You are no doubt well aware of the long term benefits of being a non-smoker and family or friends may remind you of this constantly in an attempt to persuade you to quit smoking. The true commitment must however come from you and as you can’t be made to do anything against you will while under hypnosis, the choice on whether to give up the habit remains within your control.* While your mind is relaxed and in a heightened state of awareness, negative thoughts can be neutralised and replaced with positive messages.*
Using hypnotherapy to bring about change, is beyond finding a method to give up smoking. By focusing on the habit rather than the nicotine dependence, Jonathan will guide you through a quit-smoking journey, enabling you to understand how changing your routine and avoiding the automatic prompts can diffuse the cravings.* Smoking may have become an instinctive habit as a form of social bonding with friends and colleagues and serve as a boost your self-confidence.
A cigarette can also be used as an antidote to dealing with stress and frustration, but although this may be briefly calming it doesn’t relieve the reasons for the anxiety.
With hypnotherapy, relaxation methods can be introduced, together with effective and healthy ways in which to manage stressful situations and control negative behaviour.* With a change of mindset, achieving your goal to stop smoking can be attainable.*
Hypnotherapy in Brighton for Help to Stop Smoking*
As a long-term smoker, giving up may seem to be a daunting challenge especially for anyone who has made attempts to stop smoking in the past and failed. At the Conway Practice in Brighton, hypnotherapy can help you to quit smoking without the need for cigarette replacements such as vaping, by reducing the urge to repeat the hand-to-mouth habit triggered by an automatic response in certain situations and at specific times.*
Although some may choose to be in denial, most smokers are aware that this is a potentially deadly addiction with a detrimental affect on health and general well-being. Although smoking is no longer seen as sophisticated or glamorous and is increasingly considered to be anti-social, this doesn’t necessarily make it easy to break the habit which has become a significant part of daily life. The craving for nicotine is by no means the only thing which needs to be overcome as the habitual act of smoking can be even more difficult to deal with. You may find yourself smoking mindlessly, unaware of how many cigarettes have been finished until you have to buy another packet.
During hypnotherapy sessions in Brighton with Jonathan, your reasons for wanting to stop smoking will be discussed.* It would be rare not to recall lighting your first cigarette or what led you to do that, but you may not be consciously aware of the reasons for continuing to smoke and the influences in your life which have made it difficult to stop. While your mind is in the deeply relaxed state of hypnosis and more open to positive suggestion, you will be gently guided to recognise the subconscious prompts which compel you to reach for a cigarette.* This may be during times of stress when you convince yourself that smoking will help you to cope better or to relax after a difficult day.
With the help of hypnotherapy, new coping mechanisms can be introduced, enabling you to recognise the reasons behind your smoking behaviour.* In the same way in which you’ve conditioned yourself not to smoke in certain situations; during a long flight or in another smoke-free zone for example, your non-conscious mind can be re-programmed during hypnosis to consider yourself as a non-smoker in all situations, even when others around you are smoking.* You will be able to visualise a healthier future where you have broken the negative cycle of addiction once and for all.*

Give up Smoking with Hypnotherapy in Brighton*
Are you committed to stop smoking but don’t know how to achieve it? Help is available with hypnotherapy in Brighton at the Conway Practice, bringing awareness of the psychological issues behind your habit*. Being addicted to nicotine is by no means the only factor and withdrawal from the substance can last for a relatively short period, leaving the hand-to-mouth behaviour to be resolved.
You are likely to associate specific situations with lighting a cigarette, even when there is no physical urge for nicotine. Much depends on why and where you are conditioned to smoke and during hypnosis while the conscious mind is relaxed, Jonathan will guide you to recognise the subconscious triggers which have been preventing you from becoming a non-smoker.*
Tracing back to when you tried your first cigarette can give an indication of why the habit has continued in the long-term. If smoking was originally a reason to establish empathy with your peers this may be repeated as a form of social bonding by mirroring the habits of others. The association of sharing a cigarette during work breaks when all smokers congregate in the specified smoking area can bring a sense of rapport, even if the action is a negative one. This non-verbal interaction generally occurs subconsciously and is often a result of low self-esteem and the need to be socially accepted.
Hypnotherapy in Brighton can help you to accept your self-worth and to fully appreciate your personal value.* Unresolved emotions, including any negative response to stress and anxiety will be brought into a state of conscious awareness, introducing new coping strategies with positive visualisation of yourself as a calm and confident non-smoker.*
