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.*
