  1. 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.


    After a single appointment lasting about an hour and a half you will leave with a personal MP3 to help reinforce all of the work that we have done together.

  2. Why e-cigarettes wont help you quit smoking

    Posted on

    Have you noticed that there have been more and more news stories recently about e-cigarettes seriously harming those who use them?

    Headlines such as

    “Inferno alert on exploding e-cigs"


    “Exploding Cigarette: Man Burned, bed set on Fire”


    “Calls for Safety Warnings after EXPLODING Cigarette chargers cause more than 100 fires!”

    are becoming more and more common.

    Lots of people have different opinions about e-cigs, but perhaps the only things we can all agree on is that it must be better to be a non smoker than use any kind of product that you put in your mouth and pay for.

    E-cigarettes are just the latest in a long line of products that take advantage of the fact that smokers are desperate to quit. They join patches and gum and lots of other products that may help you, but certainly help you spend money.

     How hard is it to quit smoking?

     A 2011 study from the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention showed the following interesting statistics:

    • A huge number... 70% of smokers want to quit.
    • 56% have tried to quit already and failed.
    • Only 6% managed to quit for good.

    Why is it so hard to quit when using e-cigarettes, gum and patches or even going cold turkey?

    Perhaps it's because all of the options available to you - going cold turkey, nicotine gum and patches and of course e-cigarettes - all have one thing in common which they cannot address, and it’s not just the cost and the health benefits.

    The problem is none of them address where addiction really lies – in your unconscious mind. You probably are already at the point where it’s more of a habit than something that you really enjoy, or you wouldn’t be reading this now.


    Instead of buying expensive and sometimes dangerous products in an attempt to quit, it would be wonderful if you could just address that problem and let go of smoking forever. It’s how I gave up smoking myself, so as well as seeing how it can really help change the lives of smokers who visit me; I also know how well it worked for me. I couldn’t even imagine that I would ever want another cigarette ever again. I have saved thousands of pounds and my health has really benefitted.

    Everyone stops smoking eventually. Either the smoker stops smoking, or the smoking stops the smoker. My job is to help make sure it’s the smoker who stops the smoking.
