Growing with the times – Hypnotherapy for Smoking

Call us now on 0203 3970446

In recent years, public perception of smoking has changed. What was once seen as a fashionable social habit is now more commonly associated with health risks to the smoker and to those around them, to the point where it is illegal inside all public buildings. Common reasons to give up smoking include:

• Having extra money to spend on other things
• Wanting a healthier lifestyle
• Pregnancy
• Wanting a safer, cleaner home for children and pets

Why can’t I quit?

Yet just because society is changing, that doesn’t mean that your brain will stop craving cigarettes as a result, even if your willpower is strong. Quitting smoking without any assistance at all could take many years, since the brain forms deep associations between happiness and smoking, and they can be notoriously hard to change long-term if you have no idea how the brain functions on a chemical level.

Break the Cycle

As much as nicotine patches curtail some of the cravings, cigarettes contain approximately 4,000 chemicals, of which most of them are addictive, and around seventy have been linked with serious or life-threatening conditions.

Nicotine replacements generally only deal with one or two, but by using hypnotherapy alongside such treatments, you can stop the addiction to all of them quickly in a serene, therapeutic environment where a trained hypnotherapist can help you move past the cravings and withdrawal symptoms within a few sessions. People who have given up smoking with hypnotherapy are more likely to:

• See people smoking without craving a cigarette
• Quit smoking without having to replace it with something (eating sweets, drinking etc)
• Forget the buzz of smoking quickly and easily

If you live in London and want to stop smoking, contact us right away, and we can help you blow off smoking for good.

All our programs require will power and commitment.

Social Anxiety / Professional Confidence - Public Speaking / Fear of Flying

"I'm now able to perform tasks that I thought were impossible a month ago"

I've suffered from constant anxiety for as long as I can remember, particularly from social anxiety and fear of public speaking, to the point that my office jobs were no longer manageable and I was very close to fall deeply into depression. I had very little self-confidence, despite having progressed in my career and achieved many of my professional and personal goals. However, I got to a point in which I wasn't able to progress any further due to my the constant fear of being evaluated and criticised by others, which paralysed me and stopped me from speaking up and being more visible. My day to day prior to the sessions was absolutely controlled by my anxiety and lack of confidence due to past experiences, mainly during my childhood. Having done a number of therapies before (eMDR, CBT) I was sceptical at first, but I wanted to give hypnotherapy and the BAGC6 a go. After around 13 sessions I can say that I'm in a much better place than when I started. My constant anxiety has hugely decreased, and I'm now able to perform tasks that I thought were impossible a month ago, like giving a speech in front of my colleagues without having a panic attack or simply socialising with new people at a party. My perspective on things is now different and I've gained new confidence which allows me to speak and interact with others without fear. Maria has been great in understanding my issues and creating a very tailored treatment (hypnosis, eMDR, etc) to tackle these. She's always been very determined and a firm believer in a full recovery which has been very helpful, particularly in moments when I wanted to give up. She's also giving me tools and techniques that I can use to manage emotions and to stay focused (like auto-hypnosis) and I'm using these almost on a daily basis to continue building on my confidence and resilience. As per the fear of flying, this is something that I still need to test, but I'm confident that I will have also overcome it in the same way that I've beaten my anxiety disorder. I can only be grateful to Maria for all her help and for believing in me since day 1, and totally recommend her treatment!

Thanks so much!
