Stop Smoking in One Session of Hypnosis

STOP SMOKING is the main reason people ask for hypnosis.

"Hypnosis is the most effective way of giving up smoking, according to the largest ever scientific comparison of ways of breaking the habit. Willpower, it turns out, counts for very little". (New Scientist, Volume 136 issue 1845 31 Oct 1992, page 6)

95% of the clients who come to me stop smoking in one session of hypnosis.

"I was relaxed but consciously aware of my surroundings so I found it hard to believe that hypnosis would work after just one session. But I was very impressed. I thought it would be difficult but I found it relatively easy to stop smoking. I am not troubled by other people's smoking. I used to enjoy smoking but now I enjoy not smoking. I quickly found I can breathe more deeply and have noticed two other health improvements. After four weeks, I am still a motivated non-smoker." - James Benn, Brussels

What are the success rates for other ways of stopping smoking?
- Champix (Drug) up to 22% (with side effects)
- Acupuncture up to 25% success rate
- Zyban (Drug) with its side effects, up to 21% success rate
- Nicotine patches (with their side effects) up to 13%
- Nicotine Gum (with side effects) up to 11%
- Self-help books, 9%
- Willpower alone 6%

The American Journal of Clinical Hypnotherapy published a report.
"94% of patients that stopped smoking through hypnosis were still not smoking 18 months later".

"..93% of Niotine patch users fail within a half year..." (Freedom From Tobacco - Quit Smoking Now).

There are many reasons to stop: bad for your health, expensive waste of money, no smoking rules at work or in bars/restaurants, planes etc., anti-social habit, passive smoke inhaled by family members especially children, smelly clothes and hair, ageing effect on your skin etc. I just ask one thing - that you want to stop for your own reason(s), not that someone else is pressuring you to quit. From the moment you book the session, you become an ex-smoker.

So many conditioned thoughts can lead you to believe it is difficult to stop smoking:
“Quitting is so hard.”
“I can’t stop thinking about cigarettes.”
“I’ll put on weight if I stop”.
(A common misconception.)
“I need to smoke to relieve stress.”
“I always smoke after a meal (or sex).”

With my help, you will stop smoking by relaxing and changing your thoughts about smoking. I do not use "aversion therapy" which makes you feel sick whenever you smell cigarette smoke but just reprogramme your mind to see you as a non-smoker. You will enjoy the freedom from slavery to smoking. I include suggestions to ensure you do not replace smoking with over-eating.

Some people even need therapy to break their addiction to Nicorette chewing gum or nicotine patches and scientists have found a high link in the risk of mouth cancer and nicotine replacement products.

So don't take the risk - choose the natural, relaxing way to become a non-smoker.

I am the leading English Hypnotherapist in Belgium and have a high success rate of 95% with smokers who stop in one 60 - 90 minutes session of hypnosis. I see clients in Brussels (Avenue Louise) or Antwerpen (Berchem) or at my home in Limburg.

I can run a special group session in Brussels (Avenue Louise) or Antwerpen (Berchem) or one in your company or club.

A group session is a great idea for a club, school, charity or other organization which wants to raise money and encourage people to stop smoking and so look after their health at the same time.
