Stop smoking stress free, let me show you how…
The very thought of quitting smoking is nerve-racking.
It is stressful and frustrating.
You find yourself caught in a vicious cycle… part of you wants to quit, but… another part of you makes you panic…
How many times have you stressed over stopping?
More times than you care to remember?
How do you break free from all the bad habits, beliefs and thoughts that run amok in your mind about smoking?
- You’ve made New Year resolutions; at the time you were wholeheartedly determined that you’d stop smoking “this year”.
- You’ve set a “quit date” on your calendar for “next month”.
- Every time you coughed you made a promise; you are going to quit “tomorrow”.
But, eventually you’ve gone back on your word; again and again.
Well, you might as well ask yourself; if making all those resolutions and commitments wasn’t enough, what’s it going to take to butt out that cigarette for good?
You know you are not alone…
…I used to be a smoker too. I know exactly what you are going through.
I think you’ll readily agree with me when I say: “it’s really hard to stop smoking”.
Or is it?
Maybe it’s easier than you think.
Hypnosis to stop smoking puts you back in control
Because I used to be a smoker I know how frustrating it felt to have cigarettes controlling me. And I also know hypnosis helped me to stop smoking permanently…
Keen to find out the real difference between stop smoking failure and success?
It’s got you thinking; stop smoking with hypnosis… does it really work?
And why do some people fail while others succeed? you ask.
The difference between failure and success comes down to this: “with hypnosis your desire and commitment for stop smoking becomes far greater than your fear of failure” ~
Does your failure to stop smoking affect you emotionally?
Repeated attempts and failures to stop smoking frequently lead to problems such as; lack of control, low self-esteem and low self-confidence.
There’s a lot more at stake here than just smoking itself. Every time you fail, you reinforce that failure.
Subsequently, you end up feeling even worse than before. Your trust in your ability and your self worth are eroded.

Client comments and feedback:
Many a time I’ve spoken with my clients after they’ve stopped smoking. They’ve told me ‘it was so much easier’ to overcome the addiction to smoking than they thought it would be.
- One woman recently said: “she felt like she had not even smoked before”.
- Another said: “since my sessions of hypnosis to quit smoking, I have not been tempted to have a cigarette, even though I’ve been around smokers…”
- Over the years I’ve tried to quit on my own, I tried patches and gum to no avail. As a last resort I made an appointment to see you for hypnosis. I wanted to let you know that I am a non-smoker now.
- Now I’m in my late sixties I was more than keen to stop smoking. Hypnotherapy helped me forget about smoking.
That is very reassuring feedback for me.
It’s reassuring to know that Hypnotherapy for stop smoking is not just a theory, but that in reality it produces lasting results for many people.
Pregnant women have found that hypnosis is a safe and fast way to stop smoking for good in pregnancy.
Quit smoking research
Research into quit smoking by the American College of Chest Physicians indicates:
- “Hospitalised patients who smoke are more likely to quit smoking through the use of hypnosis than patients using other smoking cessation methods.”
- “Smoking patients who participated in one hypnotherapy session were more likely to be non-smokers at 6 months compared with patients using nicotine replacement therapy alone or patients who quit “cold turkey.”
Health risks associated with smoking
You already know the many health risks associated with smoking. Would you still smoke if you had a health scare?
Recent stop smoking article in Science Daily reported that many people continue to Smoke even after being Diagnosed with Cancer. This causes me a great deal of concern.
Are e-cigarettes a health risk?
There are many health issues raised about the safety of using e-cigarettes. The existing evidence indicates that e-cigarettes are not harmless products. On 3 April 2017 National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) issued an updated statement on e-cigarettes. It was concluded that there’s insufficient evidence to support claims that e-cigarettes are safe or whether e-cigarettes can assist smokers to quit.
It begs a question; are people given sufficient enough information about alternative ways to stop smoking?
Alternative ways such as hypnosis, which do not involve nicotine replacement substances, e-cigarettes, nicotine patches and gum?
Is it ever too late to stop smoking?
It’s never too late to stop smoking, especially if you already have a serious health condition.
Are you afraid that because you’ve smoked all those years, you’ve already developed wheezing, coughing and other related symptoms? Do you say to yourself; “it’s probably too late to quit now”. Or “even if you quit now it won’t make much difference”.
Don’t make excuses… as soon as you quit, your body starts to repair itself. You’ll notice improvements in your breathing and your sense of taste and smell will improve just a few days after stopping.
Australian Hypnotherapists Association indicate that smoking cessation studies and research show hypnosis to be the most reliable method to help you become a non-smoker.
What will it take to become a non-smoker?
Well, you know you’re not just trying to see how long you can go without a cigarette? Of course you’re not… you want to quit. And you really want to quit for good this time!
Then let me show you how individually structured hypnotherapy sessions can help you quit.
During the session of hypnotherapy we will look at the reasons why you smoke in the first place. We will find ways to help you quit easily and permanently.
- Firstly, it’s not only important to help you let go of the bad habit of smoking, but to also look at the many reasons why you’ve continued to smoke.
- Secondly, we will assess if smoking has created a misconception that falsely convinced you its a good way of relaxing or dealing with boredom or anxiety?
- Thirdly, is it a reward when you accomplish something or an escape when things get stressful?
There may be other factors for us to consider such as;
- you say you love smoking
- it’s the only thing you enjoy in life
- you get stressed and short tempered without it
- you fear that if you stop smoking you’ll eat more and gain weight
If that’s the case, then we need to help you find other, more positive ways of meeting those needs, so that you don’t return to smoking or start eating unhealthy.
Wondering ‘what happens’ during a session of hypnosis for stop smoking?
Here is an excerpt from a typical case history of a stop-smoking hypnosis session with a client (read full story here).
Stop Smoking Case History…
… Alice is a past client who stopped smoking for good.
Her goal: to be healthy and smoke free.
During the session suggestions were given in hypnosis to help her make lasting changes. Mental rehearsal to reinforce that; no matter where she was or what she was doing, she would remain a happy non-smoker who is calm and in control. After all, who better than her to be in control over the way she feels, thinks and responds in all situations.
Further suggestions were made to overcome her concerns about putting on weight after quitting smoking. To help her maintain a healthy shape and size, to eat healthy and to be motivated to exercise and to stay in shape.
At the end of her session Alice opened her eyes and said she felt very relaxed. When she was ready to leave my office she paused, reached into her handbag, took out the remainder of her cigarettes and squashed them. With a big grin on her face she handed them to me to put in the bin. Alice also booked another session to reinforce everything, to make sure she stays a non-smoker long term.

What is the cost of a packet of cigarettes?
Cigarette prices in Australia are said to be the most expensive in the world. Currently, a packet of cigarettes costs between $35 and $40 (these prices hike-up every year). So a pack a day smoker spends $245 to $280 or more per week on smokes.
How much is a quit smoking session?
The cost is $210 per session
(less than a cost of a weeks worth of cigarettes)
Go ahead, get in touch and commit to a session or two of hypnosis to help you stop. It is cheaper than the cost of all those packets of cigarettes. You know you are going to spend the money on smoking anyway, so why not spend the money on investing in your future health and wellbeing.
