Quit Smoking in Sheerness

Do you intend to give up smoking and are looking for support in and around Sheerness? Bayes Hypnotherapy can help you stop smoking.

Hypnosis is the most effective way to stop smoking, according to the largest ever scientific comparison of ways of breaking the habit. Willpower, it turns out, counts for very little" (New Scientist, Vol 136 issue 1845 31 Oct 92, page 6).

Research by The New Scientist Magazine (1992) has demonstrated hypnotherapy to be the safest and speediest way to give up smoking. People were six times more likely to quit with 1 session of hypnosis and to remain non-smokers over Twelve months after their session, compared to those who administered Nicotine Replacement Therapy, such as patches or gum.

At the Bayes Hypnotherapy Clinic, conveniently located near Sheerness we have over ten years of experience in supporting people to quit smoking in Sheerness and surrounding towns.

It is important to understand that smoking is a habit and this is why it can prove to be so difficult to overcome, the "addiction", which is to the nicotine in tobacco. It is actually a lot easier to overcome the nictotine addiction as the nicotine will be out of your system within 72 hours of having your last cigarette, beyond this it is the habit that persists!

The Habit

Many smokers desire to cease smoking, but find it extremely difficult, if not impossible, to do so because smoking is a subconscious habit.

Once you become a regular smoker, you no longer smoke on a conscious level. It becomes a subconscious activity, which means, by definition, that the conscious mind is no longer in control. The conscious mind can try as hard as it likes to give up smoking, but the subconscious will carry on the habit because that's what it's been programmed to do.

Hypnotherapy uses clinical hypnosis to induce a state of relaxation, during which our unconscious mind is exceptionally receptive to new or alternative perspectives and ideas. Hypnosis is a natural state of deep relaxation; we recognise it as a particularly pleasant and comfortable state of being. With hypnosis we can cultivate desired change in behaviour and encourage psychological and physical well-being. This is achieved because the mind works on two levels; the conscious and the unconscious; we make decisions, think and act with our conscious mind, and the unconscious mind controls our habits and is home to our memory. In the relaxed state known as hypnosis, we can communicate directly with the unconscious mind and can change or dispose of fixed habits like smoking. Our qualified therapists are compassionate and discreet, and as members of the Professional body, The British Society of Clinical Hypnosis, we abide by their code of conduct and ethics.
