Stop Smoking with Hypnotherapy

Julie Saunders

You may have decided you have been self harming and poisoning your body long enough and you don’t want the news you have lung disease, your arteries are becoming blocked, you are losing your teeth and you may not live long enough to see your children get married, or your grandchildren growing up. Perhaps this sounds a little harsh but, sadly, it’s often a reality.

As an ex-smoker myself, I am passionate about helping others quit. The positive news is that hypnotherapy can stop you smoking!

How does it work?

It changes your perception of why you smoke and the benefits of giving up.

How many sessions will I need?

Many people only need one session.  This depends on whether it is purely a habit or if there are underlying causes behind why you smoke, eg some people use it as a crutch, or to fill an empty or sad feeling.

I’m apprehensive about hypnotherapy and being put to sleep. Will I be in control?

Hypnotherapy gives you a heightened form of awareness, some people remember everything, some people feel they have been asleep. I am a clinical hypnotherapist and you are in control at all times.

We all have a conscious mind and a subconscious mind . Think about driving a car ,when we are learning to drive we have to think about every maneuver, but once it is in our subconscious we hardly think about changing gear or steering . The same with smoking. It is a habit, and you probably only remember the first puff and the last.

How much will it cost?

Nothing in a sense! This is because it will save you money in the long run. Think about how much you spend a month on cigarettes, deduct it from my fees of £180 and in a few months you can spend the saved cash on a new wardrobe or a holiday. There is no cost you can put on your health!

If you feel this is the time for you to take control & not let smoking control you, then please contact me on:
