Hypnosis and SmokingStopover Campaign – Hypnotherapy to Stop Smoking

The NHS has launched the Stopober Campaign 2012, during which hundreds of people will make the healthy and smart choice to Stop Smoking.

The Campaign offers daily motivational text messaging and challenges you to Stop for 28 days, as you are 5 times more likely to give up for good if you achieve this.

Doctors report that the damages caused by smoking can take up to 10 years to reverse for an under 40 years old smoker, so why wait?

Hypnosis and Smoking

Hans Berger (1843 -1941) German psychiatrist and professor at the Vienna University invented the electroencephalograph in 1929.  The electroencephalograph widely used today registers on a graph the electrical discharges of the cerebral cortex. This made evident the existence of different types of brain waves that influence our mind and body at a physical and physiological level. Each individual brain wave has a different frequency, which influences  our concentration, behavior and emotional responses.

These waves are:

Delta (0-2hz), frequency which happens when a deep level of sleep is reached.

Theta (2 – 7hz),  is associated to drowsiness, fantasy, dream activity, problem solving, creativity and inspiration as well as access to the subconscious mind and  inspiration, creativity and awakening.

Alpha (8-12hz), is associated with a sense of well-being and inner  tranquility and relaxation.

Beta (12-30) is associated with consciousness and assertiveness. Gamma waves are associated with feeling  aggressive, panicky and the desire to run away.

During a hypnotic state, there is an increase on the  Theta and Alpha frequencies activity and a decrease on  the Delta and Beta activity. The hypnotherapist uses this state to guide clients towards achieving their goals by making beneficial suggestions and moving them towards their goal post.

Even though, hypnosis works effectively assisting the client, motivation, commitment and will power are a must to be successful in your journey.

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!
