Question & Answers:

How many sessions will be required to quit smoking?


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.



How successful is the use of hypnosis to quit smoking?


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 first 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.

SAIH Member Des AttwoodQuitting Smoking with Hypnosis … What’s the Difference?

Article written by By Des Attwood CHT

The statistics in favour of quitting smoking using hypnosis are staggeringly positive, so what does hypnosis offer that other quitting smoking solutions don’t?

We often tend to make conscious decisions easily identified by statements such as “I must give up smoking” or “I really need to give up smoking”.   And you might well give up smoking … for a while!  The secret is that unless you successfully engage your subconscious mind, (the “hard drive” that stores absolutely everything about you – like what you had for breakfast 10 years ago), ensuring that your decision is completely supported, it’s likely that your non-smoking status will be short lived.
