It’s that time of year when we start to think ahead to the Spring and plan those all important New Year resolutions! Perhaps one of the most common plans for a fresh start is to stop smoking. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help someone who is determined to quit the habit for good.

Judith Ward, a Solution Focused Hypnotherapy practitioner based in Bangor says, “Quitting smoking by working with a fully qualified and insured Solution Focused Hypnotherapy practitioner can be surprisingly easy as we work with a client to fully explain the psychology behind the habit and how we can stop for good.”

“Even a small habit of a few cigarettes a day can have a big effect on both finances and health. Smoking really is a dying habit and this one off session, which lasts a couple of hours, can really cement permanent change whereby, with willpower, the client can leave my practice and simply not smoke again.”

The stop smoking hypnotherapy session works with the practitioner explaining why the brain fools us into thinking it is acceptable to smoke. The client then experiences around 45 minutes of hypnosis during which time the subconscious mind effectively “rewires” itself to help the person’s willpower and commitment to cease smoking.

Judith Ward says, “We explain with clients who want to stop smoking why we think in the way that we do. The hypnosis part is a key stage to cementing the change and it means that the brain really “gets the message” to completely stop the habit.”

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can also be used to help to take control over other aspects of our lives, ranging from stress management through to eating and even improving our confidence.

Judith Ward says, “The start of the year is a great time to sit down with a Solution Focused Hypnotherapy practitioner to see how you can get the best out of your life and what steps you can take, over a period of time, to realise your full potential.”

I have feedback from a client who has seen a positive change in her life after quitting smoking and was featured in last month’s Northern Woman.
