We'd love to help you quit smoking!
Most people we see will quit smoking with hypnosis in a single session. Once you have made the decision to quit your smoking habit, there are very few reasons why you should need more than one hypnotherapy session.
When someone decides to stop smoking, that decision is of course a conscious decision. Unfortunately, having made that decision, many people then experience how the habit just wants to go on regardless.
It is common for people to light up a cigarette without even thinking about it - even after making a conscious decision that they don't want to smoke anymore. People using nicotine patches will often take off their patch to have a cigarette! The simple reason for this is because the habit is in a deeper part of the mind – it has become part of your subconscious mind. It creates the nagging desire for a cigarette and becomes caught up in your response to different situations and emotions, such as stressful times, or when you're out having a drink...
- By accessing the subconscious mind using hypnosis, you can create change at the same level of mind as the smoking habit itself. In this way you overcome the psychological addiction of smoking.
- Instead of forcing yourself not to smoke using a lot of effort and willpower, using hypnotherapy you will find yourself more in touch with the natural intelligence of your mind and body, with a desire to not smoke.
One of the nasty things about the smoking habit is that it can disconnect you from your basic ‘OK-ness’. In other words, you feel a need to smoke in order to feel O.K. When you leave behind the habit, you also leave behind this unpleasant feeling, and connect again with your fundamental wellbeing. If you are a smoker now, you might understand this intellectually, but as a non-smoker, you will experience the living truth of it.
So what happens when you use hypnosis to quit smoking?
In your hypnosis session, you create a change in the way you respond to situations or emotions that trigger the urge to smoke. When you find that you can have more of the things that you want by not smoking - for example, feeling more satisfied, more at ease, more calm, - then you’ll find yourself simply doing what makes you feel the best: not smoking. A distinction is made between becoming free of the habit in your mind, as opposed to simply finding some means of denial. With freedom, denial becomes a non-issue.
We spend a good amount of time with you, so that we can get to know the "nuts and bolts" of YOUR habit, and find out what you need in order for you to move away from the smoking habit with ease and empowerment.
If you're a smoker, the thought of not smoking can cause some anxiety. But remember, as a non-smoker, this thought is one of the things you will leave behind, for good.
Hypnotherapy has long been considered a great way of quitting smoking. Our experience proves this to be true.
What people have said about quitting with us …
On average, we see about 600 smokers a year.

We are always pleased to hear that we’ve been able to help people to help themselves. We’d love to hear from you, too.
To say I was apprehensive would be the ultimate understatement. I had my last smoke at 10.50am in August 06. By 1pm, I didn’t want another smoke. In fact, I handed what was left of my packet to Glenn and walked out the door anon-smoker. I spent the next two weeks trying to rationalize why I didn’t wanta smoke…what had these people done to me? I smoked 40 cigarettes a day for 25 years. I never left home without a packet of smokes.
I wasted two weeks – the reason I didn’t smoke was because I didn’t want to, I just hadn’t realised it yet. You’ll get it shortly. If you’re about to hand over your money then you obviously want to be a non-smoker. Glenn and the staff will help you achieve this if that’s what you want. You don’t need anyone to wish you good luck, just good fortune at taking this step. - Chris Sinclair 3/6/2007
Thank you for being a wonderful catalyst for my ability to Give Cigarettes Up away from my life. I feel free and in my decision strong and confident. It has opened up a whole new world of self discovery for me as I can see clearly now those areas of my life which need more focus and more attention. Those changes which I was always ‘going’ to do I am now Actually Doing! I feel wonderful, alive and again FREE. Thank you sincerely.– A.D. 2009
I will always be grateful to you for giving me back my life. K,Nambour. 1998
Just a short thank you note. Thirty-four days since my last cigarette.I know I don’t need them now. Keep up the good work for the people that needit.

After breaking up with my girlfriend and starting a new job all in the same week my stress levels were way up. Therefore, my smoking was way up. I was smoking on average 30 a day, and when I tried to cut down, I would end up smoking even more. It was time I did something about it. After seeing your sign I thought I would give it a go. Two hours later I’m a non-smoker. Now when I drive I don’t even think about it, or when I’m with friends and they’re all smoking I can look at them and know I’m better off without smoking.

We’d like to update you on how we are going. Both pleased to say that we haven’t had a cigarette in 6 weeks. We were both happy about having no cravings, so it was really easy to go without.
