Hypnotherapy could be the Key to Help You Kick the Cancer Stick.
Are you concerned about your smoking habit and wishing to quit? Do you have a nasty cough and are you the finding you are one of a minority these days? Have you tried patches, chewing gum and even the electric cigarettes and still find yourself unable to kick the habit? Hypnotherapy may prove to be a valuable aid to help you quit smoking.
Our successful quit smoking program is very intensive and boasts a high success rate that sees people recommending us and travelling to us for all over Melbourne to our unique quit smoking program, system and education. A commitment is required by the person wishing to quit the habit, because over a two week period you come in and spend approximately five hours one-on-one with us. Your first session is about educating and exploring your past and present habits, patterns, associations and behaviours, as well as preparing you, your mind and your body for change. By the time you arrive for the second session, you have had your last cigarette ever and we remove all of the attachments you may have to your very best friend (your smokes) in a comprehensive hypnotic session. In the third session we simply just address any cravings, thoughts, feelings or emotions that may or may not have arisen as a result of you breaking up with your best friend so to speak and quitting smoking.
While everyone is aware of the numerous side-effects of smoking, it can still be extremely challenging to actually kick the habit. Most people begin smoking in their teens or early twenties and before you know it, you are caught in the throes of what you think and feel is a serious addiction.
Smoking can cause irreparable damage to your health and is often the underlying cause behind heart attacks, cancer and strokes among other ailments. You may not wish to know, however an interesting fact to be aware of is that smoking leads to more deaths than traffic accidents and suicides put together.
The reason why smoking can prove to be a huge challenge to quit lies not only in the chemical nature of nicotine, but the on-going mind chatter. Once a person gets used to smoking a particular number of cigarettes a day, the body becomes gradually used to a specific dose of nicotine along with the habits and associations that go along with that. Quitting cold turkey can be hard because of the severe withdrawal symptoms that set in when you abstain from smoking. Withdrawal symptoms could include headaches, nausea, dizziness and mood swings.
Quitting a long-standing smoking habit often involves a certain amount of willpower; smoking tends to be easier to start than to quit. However our hypnotherapy quit smoking program and system gives you the tools to cope with the mind chatter that may be able to help you quit smoking for good.
How does Hypnotherapy help you Quit Smoking?
Hypnotherapy can and will work for you providing you seriously want and are committed to quit smoking. Since the hypnotherapist will be working with your mind, it is important that you make a commitment to wean yourself off your addiction to nicotine. The therapist will first help you achieve a relaxed state of mind where you are able to communicate with your subconscious.
Your subconscious is a valuable tool when you want to quit smoking. The trained hypnotherapist who specialises in helping and assisting people to quit smoking is Heather at CaS Therapy and Heather will infuse positive suggestions in your subconscious mind. Your newly reprogrammed thinking process will help you strengthen your resolve. The initial session with your hypnotherapist will be lengthier than a normal standard session, as she will first assess your history and help you understand the motivation behind your smoking habit.
Hypnotherapy is a powerful technique and our program helps identify the triggers that you associate with smoking and that make you want to smoke. For example, triggers could include stressful situations during work or at home.
It is important to choose a therapist with whom you trust and feel comfortable with. Heather is happy to discuss if she is a fit for you, prior to your sessions to reprogram your thoughts about smoking. In order to reinforce the hypnotherapy sessions, your therapist may also help you with follow-up programs that may include affirmations and self-hypnosis techniques.
