SMOKING CESSATION HYPNOTHERAPY

Reconcile Unwanted Unconscious Habits with Conscious Goals & Resolutions!

One application of hypnotherapy that I practice is the resolution of conscious-unconscious mind disagreements or conflicts using NLP "swish patterns" and "parts integration" techniques reinforced by emotional and submodalities anchoring, and by in-hypnotic-trance messaging of what you consciously already know about the imprudence of continuing your bad habit, elicitation of hope emotion as anchored to the concept of the future, and elicitations of unconscious resolve and commitment to the goal of breaking the smoking addiction habit.


Promising Clinical Studies:

  • 90.6% Success Rate for Smoking Cessation Using Hypnosis

  • Hypnosis Most Effective Says Largest Study Ever: 3 Times as Effective as Patch and 15 Times as Effective as Willpower.

Hypnosis is the most effective way of giving up smoking, according to the largest ever scientific comparison of ways of breaking the habit. A meta-analysis, statistically combining results of more than 600 studies of 72,000 people from America and Europe to compare various methods of quitting. On average, hypnosis was over three times as effective as nicotine replacement methods and 15 times as effective as trying to quit alone. University of Iowa, Journal of Applied Psychology, How One in Five Give Up Smoking. October 1992. (Also New Scientist, October 10, 1992.)Studies on the Effectiveness of Hypnosis for Smoking Cessation. (2009, April 8).
