You CAN quit smoking with Hypnotherapy ! Tried “toughing it out” ? Tried medication and patches ? Tried battling with your subconscious mind to stub those cigarettes out FOREVER ?! At Takapuna Therapy we are passionate about helping people quit smoking for good.
The conscious mind battles with the subconscious mind and sometimes wins…but with hypnotherapy we can put you into a deep state of relaxation that relaxes the conscious mind and feed suggestions to the subconscious mind while it is in the perfect state to accept these suggestions. Our conscious mind is our thinking/analytical mind and this is what most people believe they act on. However, our unconscious mind controls our habits. By identifying and resolving your subconscious smoking behaviours, thoughts and associations, our stop smoking hypnosis session at Takapuna Therapy will work with you to help to eradicate your smoking cravings for good; achieving permanent, life-changing freedom from cigarettes and smoking. Hypnosis is not magic, but if you possess the desire to be a non-smoker and are committed to stopping, then hypnotherapy will help you to achieve your goal.
As a smoker, your subconscious doesn’t know smoking is bad for you, in fact, it expects you to smoke. Perhaps you crave a cigarette with a coffee or with alcohol, or perhaps when you are stressed. Maybe you smoke to alleviate boredom or to give you ‘time out’ of your working day. These associations are so strong that willpower is not been enough to empower you to quit.
Hypnotherapy is completely safe, you are aware of what is going on at every moment, you are in control just feel safe and deeply relaxed.
SO many excellent reasons to stop…
- Save around $12,000 a year if you smoke a packet a day !
- Add years to your life, healthy years (13 people die per day in NZ from smoking related disease)
- Save valuable time every day
- Reduce harm to your loved ones by eliminating passive smoking
An article from the New Scientist Magazine (New Scientist vol 136 issue 1845 – 31 October 92) stated that: “Hypnosis is the most effective way of giving up smoking” according to the largest ever scientific comparison of ways of breaking the habit.
Also, in a study by Frank Schmidt of the University of Iowa, working with Chockalingam (Vish) Viswesvaran (a research student), hypnotherapy was recognised as the most effective way to stop smoking. Together they looked at the results of 633 studies, incorporating almost 72,000 participants. Their results, which were published in the Journal of Applied Psychology, included 48 studies of hypnosis carried out in Scandinavia, America and several other European countries, covering 6000 smokers. The results showed conclusively that hypnosis was three times more effective than nicotine replacement therapy (patches, gum etc) and had the highest success rate of the top 15 methods of quitting smoking!
