“Smokers do not smoke because they enjoy it. They do it because they are miserable without it. Quite simply, the key to being a happy non-smoker is to remove the desire to smoke. With no desire to smoke, it takes no Willpower not to do so.” - Allen Carr
When it comes to quitting smoking, you might think you've tried it all: nicotine patches, gum, medication, and even going cold turkey. These methods have had varying success for different people, but for many, the battle against nicotine addiction continues. This is where hypnotherapy comes into play. Hypnotherapy is a method that is not only distinct from the traditional techniques but has also proven to be surprisingly effective for many who have struggled with smoking cessation.
For the uninitiated, hypnotherapy involves guiding individuals into a deeply relaxed state where the subconscious mind becomes more receptive to suggestions. In the case of smoking cessation, a trained hypnotherapist uses this relaxed state to implant new beliefs and attitudes towards smoking. By replacing the neural pathways that promote smoking with those that discourage it, hypnotherapy attempts to eliminate not just the act of smoking but the desire to smoke as well.
But what makes hypnotherapy different from other methods? Traditional methods like nicotine patches or gum work on the principle of nicotine replacement. The idea is to slowly wean the individual off nicotine by replacing the highly addictive substance found in cigarettes with a less harmful form. While this does address the physical aspects of addiction, it often fails to tackle the psychological aspects. This gap is where hypnotherapy excels. Unlike nicotine patches and other replacement therapies, hypnotherapy addresses both the physical and psychological elements of addiction.
The psychological aspect of smoking is significant and often underestimated. Many smokers associate cigarettes with specific emotions or situations: stress relief, socializing, or even an activity to pass the time. This association creates a mental link between the act of smoking and emotional satisfaction, which is why it can be so hard to quit. Hypnotherapy seeks to break these psychological associations. When you remove these emotional triggers, the urge to smoke begins to diminish.
Another advantage of hypnotherapy is its personalized approach. During sessions, hypnotherapists dig deep to find the underlying reasons for the smoking habit. Do you smoke more when you are stressed or anxious? Is smoking tied to social events or certain times of the day? Once these triggers are identified, the hypnotherapist can tailor the treatment to your specific needs, increasing the likelihood of permanent cessation.
For those worried about the potential side effects, it's worth mentioning that hypnotherapy is a non-invasive technique. Unlike prescription medications, which can cause an array of side effects ranging from nausea to more severe health complications, hypnotherapy has no such risks. Moreover, because it doesn't rely on any form of medication, it avoids the issue of replacing one addiction with another.
Research into hypnotherapy for smoking cessation has yielded promising results. One study found that hypnotherapy patients were twice as likely to remain smoke-free after two years compared to those who used nicotine replacement therapy. Another study reported that among patients who participated in a single hypnotherapy session, 50% had quit after 12 months. These figures indicate that not only is hypnotherapy effective in the short term, but its effects can also be long-lasting.
However, it's essential to mention that hypnotherapy is most effective when the individual is committed to quitting. The hypnotherapist can only guide you; ultimately, the change must come from within. A willingness to quit and a belief in the effectiveness of hypnotherapy significantly improve your chances of success. This self-commitment also fits well with principles from positive psychology, which emphasize individual responsibility and empowerment for personal well-being.
But how do you go about finding a qualified hypnotherapist? A well-trained hypnotherapist can make all the difference in your smoking cessation journey. Look for professionals with certifications from reputable organizations and read reviews or ask for recommendations. It may also be beneficial to have a preliminary consultation to assess your comfort level and discuss your specific needs.
Despite its effectiveness, hypnotherapy is often overlooked as a legitimate method for smoking cessation. The skepticism surrounding it is partially due to the misconceptions about hypnosis in general. Hypnotherapy does not involve mind control or put you in a state where you lose control. On the contrary, you are entirely aware during the process, and you cannot be made to do something against your will. With its multi-faceted approach to both the physical and psychological aspects of addiction, hypnotherapy offers a holistic alternative to traditional smoking cessation methods.
If you've tried other techniques to quit smoking and found them lacking, it may be time to explore hypnotherapy. With its focus on addressing the root psychological causes of addiction, along with its physical aspects, hypnotherapy offers a comprehensive treatment for those looking to quit smoking for good. Its non-invasive nature, lack of side effects, and encouraging success rates make it a compelling option for anyone serious about quitting. So, are you ready to quit smoking once and for all? Hypnotherapy might just be the path to a smoke-free life you've been searching for.
It is the bypassing of the critical faculty of the mind and direct communication with the subconscious mind. It feels a lot like a deeply focussed day dream. Another name for it is Monoideism which is essentially having a singular focus.

It’s as if you were on automatic pilot.Have you ever been unsure whether not you did something or simply thought about doing it?

A Clinical Hypnotherapist is a specialist in hypnosis, who uses the healing state of hypnosis to work with problems or conditions that a client wishes to change.
Pretty much – some more easily than others. Like anything else in life, the more people practice self-hypnosis, the more easily they can slip into that wonderful relaxed state. The depth that people reach in hypnosis varies between individuals. It is not necessary to achieve a very deep level of hypnosis to bring about change to habits or conditions that are having a negative impact either mentally or physically.A common myth about hypnotisability is when a person says, “No one could hypnotise me" or "I’m too strong minded”. All hypnosis is self-hypnosis. A person goes into hypnosis because they choose to. So strong-minded individuals are really good candidates for hypnosis provided they are committed to wanting it to work for them.
This is one of the common misunderstandings associated with hypnosis. This is probably tied in with another misconception that the hypnotherapist has control over the client. This is not the case. People will not do or say anything under hypnosis that they would not do when not in hypnosis. Thanks to TV shows and stage hypnotists, there is a common misconception that you can be hypnotised against your will. It is not true. All hypnosis is self-hypnosis.Research conducted at the University of NSW by Dr Amanda Barnier and reported inThe Sydney Morning Heraldon 2 February 1998, states that “Hypnotised people do not act like robots, nor are they powerless pawns of post-hypnotic suggestionsplanted.
Hypnotherapy can help with smoking cessation, overeating, nail biting, bed wetting, insomnia, headaches, exam nerves, pain, anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, bulimia, depression, mood swings, alcoholism, relationship problems, hostility, anger, resentments, worry, guilt, grief, asthma, blood pressure, sexual dysfunction, warts, compulsions.Hypnotherapy has been a great help in improving exam performance, study recall, memory, sports focus, public speaking, personal growth, pain control, performance, assertiveness, childbirth, communication, relaxation, counselling confidence, releasing the past, personal empowerment, goal setting.Hypnosis can be used in the treatment of most disorders, whether mental or otherwise, where the relaxation response promotes the person’s positive mindset. For example, with a physical injury, the person’s mental resources can be enlisted to aid in managing the subsequent discomfort, allow for some rest, and lessen the associated emotional trauma. It must be noted that Hypnotherapy is not a replacement for medical treatment from your doctor.
Hypnosis is not a new modality of treatment. Hypnosis has had a variety of names and has been used for millenia as a means of influencing human behaviour. Therapeutic suggestion and concentration have been practised throughout the history as we have sought to recognise and treat discomfort, disorder and disease. The Celts and Druids practised hypnosis. The Egyptians established “sleep temples” some 4,000 years ago dedicated to therapeutic trance states in which curative suggestions were given. The Bible contains many sections which allude to hypnotic phenomena. Primitive tribes had Shamans who practised ritual, sleep cures and healing suggestions to remove the influences responsible for illness. Undoubtedly, the chants of the earliest medicine men helped many patients to restore their health. Think about the crooning and rocking that a mother uses to help her fitful child into a peaceful state of quiet and sleep.In modern times, hypnosis is usually dated to Vienna in the 1700s and a young physician named Mesmer. The method Mesmer used became known as Mesmerism. Mesmer guided his patients to use their powerful imaginations. By doing so, Mesmer unwittingly lay the corner stone of many present-day therapies. Today, imagery techniques are used in many health care settings, with cancer patients, and in the areas of sports and business motivation.In 1855, English surgeon, James Esdaile, used hypnotic skills in India. He operated on three thousand patients, of which three hundred were major procedures. He discovered the mortality rate dropped from 50% to 5%, and that many of his patients recovered more quickly, had increased resistance to infection, and had greater comfort. He presented his findings to the Royal Academy of Physicians in London. His work was denounced as blasphemous because “God intended for people to suffer”.During the 1st and 2nd World Wars, interest in hypnosis was heightened because hypnosis was found to be very effective in combating war neurosis. The success of hypnosis in dismissing symptoms through a reliving of the events of a traumatic experience created a wave of enthusiasm for hypnotic methods.It is probably true to say that hypnosis is clouded with more myths and misconceptions than any other form of psychological practice, even though these misconceptions have their roots in long-distant history and have no foundation in fact.In Australia and elsewhere throughout the world, hypnotherapy is now recognised as a valuable therapeutic methodology.
No. In hypnosis, the conscious mind takes a rest. Hypnosis allows you and the hypnotherapist to tap into the storehouse of information that lies in the subconscious (or unconscious mind) and makes positive changes to thought patterns, habits or the effects of traumatic incidents that are having a negative impact either mentally or physically.
