Smoking Cessation through Cognitive Hypnotherapy

Finally be free... with Hypnotherapy

'Hypnosis is the most effective way of giving up smoking"
- New Scientist ( vol. 136)

Hypnotherapy is proven to be the most effective treatment for smoking cessation.

Contrary to many claims from hypnotherapists it does require some will-power and motivation. However it is proven that with hypnotherapy you are at least five to fifteen times more likely to succeed than by willpower alone.

Imagine a life as a non-smoker...

  • Better health
  • Longer life
  • More freedom
  • More money!
  • More energy and confidence
  • Younger looking skin

In these Smoking Cessation Sessions we use the most powerful techniques available to ensure you get the best chance to quit you will ever receive. We don't take a cookie-cutter approach that relies on one technique. Instead we use a whole range of techniques to create a unique treatment session for you.

These methods are individually proven in research studies to be the most effective treatments for Smoking Cessation and are broadly based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Clinical Hypnotherapy. Each technique on it’s own could be 100% effective for you—however as one can never tell exactly which approach will “click” with a client we use several techniques in a powerful combination.

If you’re interested in becoming a hypnotherapist, The UK College of Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy is one of the best places to consider.

I am Director and Principal of the College, and we run a Diploma in Cognitive-Behavioural Hypnotherapy, based on mainstream peer-reviewed research on hypnosis and psychotherapy.  This course has been running for over 15 years and is very well-known in the hypnotherapy field. 

We also run an excellent MasterClass in Smoking Cessation training workshop for hypnotherapists and psychologists

The Diploma course is suitable for all levels - from those looking to retrain into a new career through to experienced counsellors, psychologists and also current hypnotherapists. It's good for those looking for a solid foundational training in hypnotherapy, as well as those looking for a more advanced hypnotherapy training.

The training is also available as an online hypnotherapy training.

The hypnotherapy training is divided into the following three stages, each of which is repeated several times a year. They can be taken close together or spread over a year, giving you complete flexibility when planning your training. Each stage consists of seven days of classroom training, a total of 168 hours over 21 days.

The approach called "cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy" that we teach is also sometimes called "cognitive hypnotherapy" - but is not to be confused with a similar training based on NLP.
