    Does Hypnosis to Quit Smoking work?

    Can Hypnotherapy help you to Stop Smoking for good this Stoptober ?

    Last year Stoptober passed quite a few people by as we headed into another Covid wave and people had other things on their mind.

    This year as we head into a flu season with Coronavirus still around, there is no better time to look at giving up smoking for good. Studies have shown that being a smoker can make your reaction to both Covid and flu worse. Because we now know that Covid cases can cause even worse problems in the lungs of smokers, you may also wonder if Hypnotherapy could be the answer you are looking for, if you find it hard to quit smoking alone.

    What is Stoptober?

    It has now been going for a good few years. The idea of a month to help raise awareness of giving up cigarettes for good to help you and also of course the strain on the NHS in having to deal with more patients at a time when things are already very busy.

    It is a government backed scheme designed to help people who really want to give up smoking. The thinking of a month long campaign is that if you can give up for 28 days then you are much more likely to remain a non smoker.

    It takes about that long to break a habit so with a little support you can get to November and not need another cigarette again.

    The difference with Hypnotherapy to stop smoking... The biggest difference is that we really want you to leave after seeing me with the habit already in check. Rather than a struggle with willpower for a month, my aim is that you simply stop and don’t find any cravings or need to smoke any longer.

    How do I know Hypnosis works to quit smoking?

    Well...I used Hypnosis to Stop Smoking myself

    For myself, I gave up smoking myself with hypnotherapy well over twenty years ago and now I help others to quit smoking with hypnosis in just one session! We have a session which lasts about an hour and a half and after we talk things through and I introduce you to how hypnosis works then you go away already a non smoker.

    I even make you a recording of the hypnosis that we do to help everything sink in and also act as a great way to switch off and relax at home.

    Many of the things that I help people with can take a few sessions, but quitting smoking with hypnosis is completed in one session for you. Don’t forget, I even make you a recording that you can listen to at home to really help you stay a non smoker.

    There are many different ways that you can get help and as a Clinical Hypnotherapist I know how successful hypnotherapy can be.

    The most important thing is that just starting to think about it and talk about it can lead you to really make the change.

    Having read this page on my website is a great start. You can either contact me now, or just let yourself have a few days to think about when you are ready to let go of the cigarettes and take back control from them.

    Skype Quit Smoking sessions.

    When Covid hit the world many people turned to working online. However, I have been working with people online to help them with Skype Hypnotherapy for about ten years so I already had lots of experience. If you are near to me in Redditch in the UK then you can come and see me in person. If you are further afield then you can still work with me online on Skype in the comfort of your own home.

    In 2021 the Covid crisis has made Stoptober even more important. If you catch Coronavirus as a smoker then the effects could be much worse for you as it affects your lungs. This year the UK Government will be making even more noise about the benefits of stopping smoking.

    Hypnotherapy on Skype and Zoom for needle phobia

    Online with Skype or Zoom for Hypnotherapy sesssions to end Fear of Needles and Injections

    Are you worried about having an injection for the Coronavirus Vaccine? Perhaps a fear of needles has been something you have been able to live with for a long time. Now, though you need to have an injection and are looking for a way to make it easier.

    As the Covid mass vaccination programme rolls out throughout the UK more and more people are breathing a sigh of relief. The injection of Coronavirus vaccine is helping people to see that even if this is not the end, it’s at least the beginning of the end.

    Millions of people have already had their injections and seeing the pictures on TV of people being vaccinated against Covid it is easy to think that if you have a fear of needles you are alone.

    So many people aren’t worried about the safety of the vaccine, after all it has been fully tested and approved, they’re frightened of the needle it comes in. It may have been easy to live for years without any problems from this, especially if you declined the yearly flu vaccine, but right now things are different and it is in the interests of you, your family and the whole world to get that injection of Covid Vaccine when you are offered the chance.

    This short video explains all about fears and phobias and the good news about how you can let them go forever....

    Are Adults or Children the most scared of needles? and How does it happen?

    Being scared of injections and needles is fairly common in children, and generally with more experience of how they benefit us, this slowly decreases with age.

    It’s generally thought that about 10 per cent of people have some level of anxiety about getting a blood test or receiving an injection. Even so most people carry on through this and they have that needle in their arm to help them overcome whatever the injection is designed to do.

    What do you call a fear of needles and injections?

    However for many this fear can be much worse. It is known as Trypanophobia, or a severe phobia of injections. When things are this bad they can have a very debilitating impact on the sufferers’ life.

    Sometimes people may be so fearful of needles that they faint, which further increases their fear of future events. There are some people who have a medical condition which can cause this, but that doesn’t affect so many people. That fainting can come from the fear and the physical reaction it causes.

    We tend to find that often one bad experience colours our feelings around needles and how we react to injections. Often this is a single bad experience in childhood, perhaps during routine vaccinations or a dental appointment. If the dentist said to you: "just a little scratch" you are likely to be more relaxed than if they said: "this is going to hurt!"

    Can our parents teach us a fear of injections?

    Yes! Often and without even realising it the reaction of your parents if something didn’t go as planned can cause you to be the one with the fear.  This can mean a lack of sleep through worry even days before you are due to have an injection. As children we can pick up on worries that our parents have and they do not always even realise how much we see and hear.

    I often see people who now have their own children and want to make sure that they do not pass on their own fear to their children in the future.

    Whatever your reasons, it is never too late to finally deal with your fear of injections. The issues surrounding Covid and how the Coronavirus has affected the entire world have only brought this into sharper focus for everyone.

    If you would like to let go of your fear of injections then simply drop me a line and I can tell you more about how I can help you to relax and let go of that feeling on a permanent basis.

    Can I have Hypnosis for needle fears online?

    Yes of course. I have been working online with Skype for nearly ten years so I have lots of experience in helping people with fears and phobias to overcome them. Whilst Zoom therapy is now becoming more and more known, you can rest assured that this isn’t something I only started during the covid pandemic.

    Remember, any fear is something that we learn. If you learn it you can unlearn it!
