Hypnosis is the most effective way to give up 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 revealed hypnotherapy to be the safest and quickest way to give up smoking. Participants were 6 times more likely to quit with 1 session of hypnosis and to remain non-smokers over 12 months after their session, compared to those who utilised Nicotine Replacement Therapy, such as patches or gum.

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

It is imperative 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 cigarettes. 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 give up smoking, but find it extremely difficult, if not impossible, to do so because smoking is a subconscious habit.

Once you become a frequent 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 command. The conscious mind can try as hard as it likes to quit smoking, but the subconscious will carry on the routine 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 highly receptive to new or alternative perspectives and ideas. Hypnosis is a natural state of profound relaxation; we recognise it as a very pleasant and comfortable state of being. With hypnosis we can create desired change in behaviour and encourage mental and physical well-being. This is achieved because the mind works on two levels; the conscious along with 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 are able to communicate directly with the unconscious mind and can change or eliminate 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.
