Stop Smoking Treatment

Stop Smoking Session

I’m Dave Woolley and I’ve been specialising in using hypnotherapy to help  clients stop smoking in one session for over 12 years. As an Ex-nurse I know how damaging smoking can be and how most people would like to give up but are frightened or worried at how difficult it can be.

I use an individualised method that combines hypnotherapy and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). I am a Master Practitioner of NLP and also an accredited Trainer of NLP.  Hypnotherapy had been shown to have one of the highest success rates for smoking cessation – Often more effective than nicotine gum, nicotine patches or simple will power alone. So, provided you are determined to stop smoking, you have a very high chance of stopping smoking in just one session and becoming a non-smoker.

We will spend some time discovering how you smoke, why you smoke and the perceived benefits of smoking for you. Only by discovering your unique smoking process can we then design a special protocol to break that smoking habit.

During the hypnotherapy session I will help you to break the habit of smoking. I help you break the connections with smoking, whether they are emotional, such as stress or boredom or physical process of smoking after a meal or with a drink. I then help you to feel great about saying “no” to cigarettes and tobacco of any sort

When I stop smoking, will I gain weight?

This question comes up very often. People are overweight because of the food they eat. Some people may have stopped smoking in the past, using willpower or some other method, only to replace smoking with snacking. What I do in my stop smoking session is help you transfer the satisfaction that you may have had from smoking to something that is better for you, perhaps drinking more water or doing exercise, and give you powerful suggestions in hypnosis that there will be no increase in your appetite on becoming a non-smoker. You will not be replacing smoking with some other unhelpful habit. This allows you to become a non-smoker without gaining excessive weight.

What’s the difference between this method and that used by other hypnotherapists?

Some hypnotherapists only use suggestion hypnosis to help their clients stop smoking. Suggestion hypnosis using hypnosis tapes has been reported to have a success rate 5 times higher than sheer willpower, and three times more effective than nicotine gum! However what I use is unique tailored hypnotherapy including powerful NLP techniques to increase the effectiveness of the session.
