Are you ready to quit smoking forever?


Did you know that Hypnosis is three times as effective as the nicotine patch and fifteen times more effective than willpower? (J. Applied Psyc.) Hypnosis will not only cure you of your nicotine addiction, it will leave you feeling great. Most people require only one session to quit smoking, though some enjoy a second session just to solidify the change.


My proven program helps you quit with confidence and avoid relapse.

Hi Louise, yes all good here! I’ve definitely noticed some responses to situations that you focussed on, and its all very positive. That switch I referred to has most certainly been clicked into the right position. I’ve seen people smoking in the street and without realising it, or it being a conscious thought, I’ve felt sorry for the person, then a reaction of revulsion at the taste of a cigarette. Its definitely touched something on a sub-conscious level. Anyway, I’ve not had a single smoke, or even thought about it, since I saw you, so just over 2 weeks now! And I’ve been happier to walk the dog. Today my partner and I did a hour and half trek around the Gorge, and my energy levels are great.

I'm going really well. Have not had a cigarette since being hypontized. I have moments where I forget I don't smoke but never really feel like one.

What's right for you - an individual or couples session?

Quitting with a supportive friend or loved one can sometimes be easier than quitting alone. You can motivate one another and share the journey together. You have someone to celebrate with as you both become healthier and wealthier! However, in some situations it's better to have the hypnosis by yourself. Think carefully about who you would choose to share the session with you.


If one of you is going through a stressful time at the moment, it may be best to have an individual hypnosis session to resolve that issue, before having stop smoking hypnosis.If your friend is less than 100% committed you will be more likely to succeed having an individual session.


If your friend is only coming along to make you happy (sometimes the case with married couples!) then you will be more likely to succeed having an individual session.If your friend is more likely to relapse and try and tempt you back to 'the dark side', you will be more likely to succeed having an individual session.Only you can decide whether to quit alone or with a friend. Hypnosis is powerful but it is not magic. You have to want to quit! If you're unsureabout which session to choose, please contact me for a free 10 minute phone consultation to discuss your needs.

Does it work?

I am often asked whether hypnosis really works to stop smoking. Yes it does! If you are committed to quitting then hypnosis will give you the motivation and willpower you need to do it.If you need some evidence for how effective hypnosis can be when you're ready to quit smoking, keep reading. There are many quality studies showing the effectivness of hypnotherapy in treating all manner of ailments and behavioural problems. Below is a compilation of just some studies into the therapeutic effectiveness of hypnosis in treating smoking.


90% Success Rate For Smoking Cessation Using Hypnosis

Of 43 consecutive patients undergoing this treatment protocol, 39 reported remaining abstinent from tobacco use at follow-up (6 months to 3 years post-treatment). This represents a 90.6% success rate using hypnosis.University of Washington School of Medicine, Depts. of Anesthesiology and Rehabilitation Medicine, Int J Clin Exp Hypn. 2001 Jul;49(3):257-66. Barber J.


87% Reported Abstinence From Tobacco Use With Hypnosis

A field study of 93 male and 93 female CMHC outpatients examined the facilitation of smoking cessation by using hypnosis. At 3-month follow-up, 86% of the men and 87% of the women reported continued abstinence from the use of tobacco using hypnosis.Performance by gender in a stop-smoking program combining hypnosis and aversion. Johnson DL, Karkut RT. Adkar Associates, Inc., Bloomington, Indiana. Psychol Rep. 1994 Oct;75(2):851-7. PMID: 7862796 [PubMed - indexed for MEDLINE]


81% Reported They Had Stopped Smoking After Hypnosis

Thirty smokers enrolled in an HMO were referred by their primary physician for treatment. Twenty-one patients returned after an initial consultation and received hypnosis for smoking cessation. At the end of treatment, 81% of those patients reported that they had stopped smoking, and 48% reported abstinence at 12 months post-treatment.Texas A&M University, System Health Science Center, College of Medicine, College Station, TX USA. Int J Clin Exp Hypn. 2004 Jan;52(1):73-81. Clinical hypnosis for smoking cessation: preliminary results of a three-session intervention. Elkins GR, Rajab MH.


Hypnosis Patients Twice As Likely To Remain Smoke-Free After Two Years

Study of 71 smokers showed that after a two-year follow up, patients that quit with hypnosis were twice as likely to remain smoke-free than those who quit on their own.Guided health imagery for smoking cessation and long-term abstinence. Wynd, CA. Journal of Nursing Scholarship, 2005; 37:3, pages 245-250.


Hypnosis More Effective Than Drug Interventions For Smoking Cessation

Group hypnosis sessions, evaluated at a less effective success rate (22% success) than individualized hypnosis sessions. However, group hypnosis sessions were still demonstrated here as being more effective than drug interventions.Ohio State University, College of Nursing, Columbus, OH 43210, USA Descriptive outcomes of the American Lung Association of Ohio hypnotherapy smoking cessation program. Ahijevych K, Yerardi R, Nedilsky N.


Hypnosis Most Effective Says Largest Study Ever: 3 Times as Effective as Patch and 15 Times as Effective as Willpower

Hypnosis is the most effective way of giving up smoking, according to the largest ever scientific comparison of ways of breaking the habit. A meta-analysis, statistically combining results of more than 600 studies of 72,000 people from America and Europe to compare various methods of quitting. On average, hypnosis was over three times as effective as nicotine replacement methods and 15 times as effective as trying to quit alone.University of Iowa, Journal of Applied Psychology, How One in Five Give Up Smoking. October 1992.(Also New Scientist, October 10, 1992.)
