Cognitive behavioural therapy to stop smoking, hypnotherapy and hypnosis helping you to become a non smoker, effortlessly and without the cravings
A warm welcome is offered and thank you for visiting the website of the Life Change Wellbeing Clinic and this page in particular detailing how you can be helped and treated effectively to stop smoking. Specialised treatments and therapy offered for smoking cessation include cognitive behavioural therapy to stop smoking and hypnotherapy to stop smoking.hypnotherapy to stop smoking.
This web page describes in detail how you will be helped to achieve your goal of becoming a non smoker. Please take your time reading the details and absorb the message I am trying to deliver. The message is repeated many times because I am trying to be clear how I will help you to stop smoking. If you have any questions at all about this unique stop smoking programme, please do not hesitate to contact me. The contact details are at the bottom of this page.
With this Stop Smoking programme you will not be told or brainwashed about all the reasons why you shouldn't smoke, after all you know these reasons. We will, however, work together to look at your beliefs as to why you continue to smoke even though you have a conscious desire to quit. We will work through the sabotaging thoughts which have previously stopped you from reaching your goal of quitting your smoking habit and then set a realistic time frame for you to stop smoking.
You probably have smoked for many years and before you even attempt to quit your smoking habit, you will be helped to get in to the right frame of mind of becoming a non smoker. I'm sure that most people reading this page have tried many times to stop smoking, without success.
You will have been unsuccessful because you had not changed your attitude towards smoking and what you think it does for you. You will have harboured the negative thoughts how difficult stopping smoking would be. Basically you had not prepared yourself to break you smoking habit. Without preparation, stopping smoking is very hard to achieve. Think of any task you wish to achieve. If you prepare well for it you will stand a good chance of success. If you do not prepare the results will be very sporadic. The stop programme offered here will firstly prepare you to become a non smoker and then the second part of the programme works on actually quitting.
You may have seen many websites offering you the quick fix treatment, 'stop smoking in one hour of treatment'. If we are realistic in our thoughts and expectations, the chances of stopping smoking long term in just one hour of therapy is virtually impossible because your thought processes which you have attached to smoking will not have been addressed, you will not have prepared to become a non smoker first.
With the effective stop smoking treatment offered at the Life Change Wellbeing Clinic you will be helped to challenge your negative sabotaging thoughts about smoking with cognitive behavioural therapy, helping you to get in to the right frame of mind to stop smoking, (preparing to become a non smoker), then the added therapeutic model of hypnotherapy to stop smoking becomes a very beneficial aid to help you with your stop smoking goals.
You are helped, initially, to look at your beliefs as to why you smoke
and what you believe smoking does for you i.e, "Smoking helps me to
de-stress", "I cant go out for a drink and not smoke". You are helped
to look at your beliefs to discover if they are fact or if they are
simply habits and thoughts which you have learned to accept and adopt.
You are helped to change your negative dysfunctional thinking as to why
you continue to smoke with the use of cognitive behavioural therapy. This is all part of the preparation to become a non smoker. Prepare well and your chance of success is greatly enhanced.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to stop smoking helps you to change the way in which you think, feel and behave towards cigarettes. At present you believe that cigarettes and smoking goes hand in hand with certain tasks. You are encouraged to challenge these beliefs as to what is fact vs the thoughts and beliefs you have conjured up.
As You Once Learned To Become A Smoker,
Equally, You Can To Learn To Become A Non Smoker
You may have tried to quit smoking before and do you remember how difficult it was? Have you ever asked yourself why it was difficult to stop the habit of smoking? Have you ever wondered why you have been able to stop for a couple of days only to give in to the temptation. Have you ever wondered why you can be on a 10 hour flight and not really think about smoking only to notice the cravings start appearing as the plane start making it's descend to landing because soon you will be able to smoke again! (This shows that smoking is a habit and not an addiction.)
The answer why you found it
difficult to stop smoking is because you never changed your thinking
patterns towards smoking and cigarettes. You kept thinking like a smoker
instead of learning to think like a non smoker. You didn't prepare to become a non smoker first you just jumped in feet first.
With this effective stop smoking
programme at the Life Change Wellbeing Clinic, you will learn successfully to think and act like a non
smoker, firstly with cognitive behavioural therapy to break down your negative sabotaging thoughts, (preparing to become a non smoker), and then with hypnotherapy to break the sub-conscious habit.
If you look at the above statements, how many of them are true with you? Smoking is a habit, a habit which you created, a habit which you allowed to become a part of you. Like the way in which you created our smoking habit, equally, you can learn to create the habit of being a non smoker. It does not need to be difficult and hard as you imagine. With the effective treatment offered at the Life Change Wellbeing Clinic, stopping smoking becomes easier than you had imagined.
When you have tried previously to quit smoking, you would have been telling yourself to do it without any reasoning and encouragement. This is one of the reasons why it would have been too difficult because you would have been in conflict with yourself. Imagine if someone came up to you and just told you to do something. How would you react? Would you be happy to do it? Would you do it this time with reluctance but decide not to next time if it was asked in the same way? Would you feel happy to carry on with the task?
What about in the same situation someone asked you to do something? How would you feel about the situation if the person gave you a reason why they wanted you to do something, would you be more inclined to assist if you were in tune of the benefits of doing it? Would you be happy to help again if you were asked another time and would you be happy to carry on with this new behaviour?
You can apply the above example to what happens when you try to quit smoking going cold turkey or by a quick fix methods without preparing yourself of the benefits of changing your smoking behaviour. If you just tell yourself to stop smoking the road will be very hard because of the inner conflict you will experience. You will find it very hard to continue.
If you learn to adopt the benefits of stopping smoking, if you prepare yourself for change first, then you are on a safer road to success. If you learn to adopt the benefits of stopping smoking, if you prepare yourself for change first, then you are on a safer road to success.
The skills of cognitive behavioural therapy to stop smoking avoids the inner conflict because it breaks down your sabotaging thoughts into smaller components. Once your thought processes have been challenged and an alternative more realistic thought process put in it's place, you are then in a more positive state of mind about quitting your smoking habit without the conflict, making stopping smoking easier.
order to stop smoking and experience the results permanently, the goal
of stopping smoking needs to come naturally, not as mentioned above by experiencing the conflict by forcing yourself to quit without your mind being in the right frame of mind. Quitting
smoking will come naturally with the effective treatment offered at the
Life Change Wellbeing Clinic and help you to remain smoke free because of the effective skills of cognitive behavioural therapy and hypnotherapy which will be adopted.
Before you can actually quit, and quit permanently, you will be helped to learn the skills of thinking like a non smoker so before you even try to stop your habit of smoking you will get in to the right frame of mind, providing you with more chance of success. (Preparing to become a non smoker)
Whilst you are learning these new skills to become a non smoker it is ok to keep on smoking. You will stop smoking when you are ready and when your mind is ready. If you try to quit too quickly, like going cold turkey, you may not succeed because you would not have learned the new thinking patterns adequately to think like, and become a non smoker.
Cognitive behavioural therapy will help you to change your thought processes towards cigarettes and smoking. Once you are in the right frame of mind, hypnotherapy to stop smoking will help to cement your new thought processes and gain a far greater chance of quitting and most importantly, remaining smoke free.
Remember, you will probably have tried to stop smoking before by using quick fix methods, going cold turkey, using patches or gums, going to a quick fix therapist and the results have always been the same...you have remained a smoker.
At the Life Change Wellbeing Clinic, I do not offer you a quick fix promises. What I do offer is to work with you to initially break down your sabotaging thoughts you have towards smoking, to help you to think like a non smoker, (preparing to become a non smoker) and then finally, once we are both happy your mind is in the right place, the effective use of hypnotherapy suggestion to help you break your sub-conscious habit.
It is very difficult to quit smoking unless you learn to think like a non smoker first. The effective treatment offered at the Life Change wellbeing Clinic will help you to think like a non smoker getting you on the path of finally quitting
Hypnotherapy to stop smoking helps to uncover underlying subconscious reasoning of what smoking does for you and why you do it. Whereas cognitive behavioural therapy helps you to challenge negative conscious thinking, hypnotherapy helps to fix any subconscious triggers. When you light a cigarette, generally speaking, you do not consciously think about having one, you just put it in your mouth, light it and smoke it.
Equally you may find yourself lighting cigarettes in the same situations without even realising it. This is called smoking by association. Your hand just goes out for the packet. Smoking is a habit. Some people believe smoking is an addiction. Addictions and habits are different. If smoking was an addiction you would wake in the morning and smoke all the cigarettes your body missed whilst sleeping. Does that happen with you?
The same can be applied to flying. Do you find yourself smoking all the cigarettes you missed whilst on the flight? I think the answer is probably no. Smoking is a habit and that habit lives in your subconscious mind and this is where hypnotherapy will help you fix your smoking habit.
Hypnotherapy is very effective in helping break down sub-conscious habits and replacing them with more alternative positive habits. During the hypnotherapy sessions, you will be helped to be in a relaxed state , enlisting the power of your own imagination and may utilise a wide range of techniques for the use of direct suggestions bringing about beneficial change. Hypnotherapy used as a means to help you stop smoking is completely safe and you can benefit from ther results that hypnotherapy to stop smoking can bring you.
With hypnotherapy to stop smoking, what the mind
sees, the mind can achieve. You will be helped to visualise the future
as a non smoker, visualising yourself in situations where you currently
smoke but now seeing yourself calm and relaxed as a non smoker. This is
why the visualusation part of the hypnotherapy sessions is so
successful. If you visualise yourself as a non smoker then your mind can
help you to become a non smoker. This is achieved naturally without the
grapples of negative thinking to get in the way of your success because your negative dysfunctional thoughts will have been addressed in the first part of this programme.
Once you have been helped to effectively think like a non smoker with the cognitive behavioural therapy treatment, your sub-conscious mind will be ready to accept the hypnotic suggestions of becoming a non smoker.
