    Why Simon Cowell can’t use Hypnosis to Quit Smoking

    Good friend of Simon Cowell Paul McKenna, says that even hypnotherapy can't force Simon Cowell to stop smoking  

     One of the things about helping people to stop smoking with hypnosis is that you can’t make anyone stop smoking. When they come and see you for hypnotherapy they have already made the decision to become a non smoker. I have written about his before with Adele who really didn’t want to stop smoking even though she saw a hypnotherpist She found it very useful for stage nerves because she really did want to deal with them of course.

    Now the Daily Mirror reports that famous hypnotist and Life coach Paul McKenna has told how his close friend Simon Cowell has given up on hypnotism as a way to quit smoking. He didn’t really want to stop as he liked it so much! Now he unwinds by playing Twister instead. X Factor boss Simon, 59, has tried hypnotherapy more than once but admitted he failed hands-down.

    You Have to Want to Stop Smoking for Hypnosis

    Paul, who has sold millions of self-help books, says he knows the music mogul too well to even try persuading him to kick the habit – because he does not really want to quit. Paul, 55, said: “Simon will do what he wants to do and I haven’t given him any hypnotherapy to stop. “My take on smoking is, if someone wants to smoke then it’s a lifestyle choice – the last thing I want to do is to lecture people on these things. “Simon hasn’t asked for my help to quit, I think he’s quite happy as he is.” Pop guru Simon has managed to slash his habit from the 80 a day he used to smoke, taking up vaping two years ago for the sake of his son, Eric.

    This is always the key to success. Often people contact me to ask about how quit smoking hypnotherapy works and when I explain they go away and think about it. I hear from them again once they have really decided that the time is right for them to stop.

  2. Does Quit Smoking Hypnosis work?

    Posted on

    January is one of the busiest times of the year for any hypnotherapist who helps people to stop smoking with hypnosis.

    As the New Year rolls around and people's thoughts turn to new starts and healthy options in eating and drinking the idea of quitting smoking starts to form in more and more people's minds.

    How well does Hypnosis work in helping people to stop smoking?

    Well, it helped me a long long time ago for a start. When I realised how much easier it made everything I went on to find out so much about hypnotherapy that I trained as a hypnotherapist myself and have been helping other people to see the benefits of quitting smoking.

    It's a really rewarding feeling seeing how different people feel when they come to the end of their session with me. They suddenly realise that with a little help becoming a non smoker is something that can really benefit them with a lot less stress and hassle than they realised.

    If you really want to quit smoking the statistics show that Hypnotherapy is by far the most effective way to get help!


    • July 2001 – International journal of Clinical Hypnosis shows that Hypnosis achieves a 91% success record
    • October 1992 – University of Iowa conducts the largest ever study of smoking cessation examining 48 studies of 72,000 people to conclude that Hypnosis is 3 x more effective than nicotine replacement and 15x more effective than will-power.
