Quitting smoking is a challenge. Let’s get that out of the way first. If you’ve ever put down a pack of cigarettes and made a vow to leave them behind, only to find yourself lightning up a few days or weeks later, you’re not alone. A study by the Cancer Council of Victoria in 2013 showed that 86% of smokers surveyed reported that they had tried to quit smoking in the previous 12 months. Of that amount, 30% had no success.
The first step towards quitting smoking for good is understanding why you’ve struggled to quit in the past. You smoke because the nicotine you inhale which every hit has altered the chemistry of your brain. This creates powerful urges to smoke. Nicotine attacks the subconscious part of your brain. A part you have no awareness of. The job of the conscious brain is to counter this. That’s where I can help.
As a clinical hypnotherapist I combine the practice of hypnosis – the act of putting a patient into a trance-like state to encourage suggestibility to change their conscious habits, with therapeutic goals. Using these methods I’ll bring the unhealthy subconscious causes of your smoking to the surface and help you replace them with positive thoughts, feelings, habits and behaviours.
The greatest personal limitation is to be found not in the things you want to do and can't, but in the things you've never considered doing.
I’m happy to answer any questions you may have about clinical hypnotherapy and how you can use it to improve your life..
