 Answer:

SAIH often receives calls and emails asking for the charges for Hypnotherapy sessions. Our standard response still applies. Just as with any other sessions we trust that our qualified members will adapt a price structure that fits to their experience and circumstances. We understand at this point that Genesis Medical Scheme allows their members to draw up to R 1000 from their savings for smoking cessations.

Question:

Will the hypnotherapist be required to follow a prescribed smoking cessation technique?

 Answer:

Smoking cessations can be dealt with through various hypnosis techniques. All our qualified members have undergone specialized training to assist with smoking cessation and compulsive behaviours. Since our members are trained to be client centred we trust that the hypnotherapist of your choice will structure the session(s) to set you up to become a successful non smoker.

Question:

How many sessions will be required to quit smoking?

 Answer:

Smoking cessations can be dealt with through various proven hypnosis techniques and all our qualified members have undergone specialized training to assist with smoking cessation and compulsive behaviours. Therefore, depending on the Hypnosis practitioner you choose and that you are comfortable with, smoking cessation can be structured over one, two (or more) session/s of varied duration.

Question:

How successful is the use of hypnosis to quit smoking?

 Answer:

Every SAIH member displaying the Genesis Medical Scheme logo has adequate training and skills to facilitate smoking cessations. Hypnosis for quitting smoking is one of the best known applications with a high success rate. However, this does not make this a miracle cure. You will need to have a genuine wish to quit and claim back a healthy lifestyle and the willingness to work with your hypnotherapist.

The even better news is that our members are trained to understand possible obstacles like secondary gain, the law of reversed effect and many other underlying reasons why you are not yet a successful non smoker. Here truly is the opportunity to make a change for good.

Important for this procedure to be successful and lasting is that you and your hypnotherapist look carefully at your reasons and perceived benefits for smoking. Your subconscious may deny to conform with the therapy when these important points remain unaddressed BEFORE the smoking cessation.

For example:

Many people experience high levels of stress or anxiety and smoking brings a perceived benefit of relaxation. You might have not only greater benefit but also a much better platform for success when you deal with the causes for your stress with your practitioner. Otherwise, you can imagine, at the next serious incident when your stress or anxiety is kicking in you may just reach out for that smoke.
