How can hypnosis help you to stop smoking?

When you decide to stop smoking, let's face it, there are countless ways to quit so i won't bore you with the details, you know what they are. Many people find hypnosis works for them as an alternative medical and natural way to stop the habit. Now, i'm not saying that hypnosis is a one hundred percent cure for all smokers, but it can help your subconscious accept the wanted suggestion to stop. Couple that with your own will power and hey presto!
Hypnotherapy works by changing the way you think about smoking cigarettes and establishing the reasons why you want to stop. During your treatment, you will be put into a deeply relaxed hypnotic state so that your subconscious will be receptive to suggestion. Hypnosis for quitting works best when the smoker is committed to stopping the habit. It usually takes just one appointment to stop smoking.

 Stress and Anxiety
Thousands of years ago the fight or fight response was handy when we needed to run away or defend against prehistoric creatures, hot running lava and attacks from other cave men. This reaction is our body's natural response to danger. It served us well in the past ensuring the survival of the human race. However, in these modern times we don't face the same dangers as we did in the past but we have still retained the fight or flight response.
In other words, the ancient response system has adapted. This natural reaction still continues to search for perceived threats. Yes indeed, our clever subconscious still looks for threats to our survival in the most unusual and inconvenient places. 
Such as when sitting an exam, making a speech, doing a presentation or going to a job which you don't particularly like. In fact, if you find yourself in any situation that you don't want to do but have to do which makes you feel stressed or anxious then bingo! Your subconscious detects a threat to your survival and a whole load of symptoms kick in to stop you from doing that thing that you don't like. 
You will suffer from a lovely array of symptoms which include nausea, headaches, upset stomach, rapid heart beat, insomnia, mystery aches and pains and low appetite. All these symptoms are the clever subconscious trying to stop you from putting yourself in harms way.

However, for some people, the stress response can have a profound effect on their everyday lifes. The ancient fight or flight is working a bit too well for comfort and so this is where hypnotherapy can help.

When you come to see me I will teach you excellent stress reducing techniques and coping strategies. Whilst under hypnosis you will benefit from relaxation through positive suggestion and visualisation. I will even teach you self-hypnosis which you can use for  the rest of your life for all sorts of situations.
