Stopping Smoking really doesn't have to be difficult. In fact it can be as simple as a one session treatment.
If you are looking to stop smoking then I have several practices in Nottinghamshire. You can choose from West Bridgford, Newark or Southwell. The smoking cessation programme is designed to help you quit quickly and easily.
Most smokers struggle with making the actual decision to stop, they will have a whole host of reasons as to why its not the right time to stop, so they will say things like after my holiday I'm going to stop, after Christmas, after my birthday...etc. However even after all these reasons to postpone, they will keep delaying. One of the reasons for this is FEAR.
This may sound strange, but its the fear of not being able to stop, or cope, or even the fear of missing out on a smoking break at work, the list of fears is many!
The physical addiction of nicotine is actually very quick to overcome, its the psychological aspect of the habit which is much harder to break. This is why most smokers struggle unless they have got their mind in exactly the right place and no longer fear giving up. This is where hypnotherapy tackles the habit.
If you have a genuine desire to Stop, then hypnotherapy can provide you with the mental aspect of quitting.
If you are a smoker and you are committed to kicking the habit, then with one 2hour 30min session you can leave with the conviction that you are a non smoker.
There are a wealth of benefits from stopping.
We all think we know what stress is, because we have all experienced it. Yet Stress is something that covers a wide scope. Experiences range from mild irritation to Chronic stress, which can result in mental and physical problems.

What is Stress
When we experience stress our body reacts by triggering the release of powerful hormones, this raises our blood pressure and increases the heart rate. Your body is wired to react to stress in ways that are meant to protect you against a perceived threat, stress can be experienced when we think the demand being placed on us exceeds our ability to cope. This is the normal flight or fight response, however to experience prolonged fight or flight creates feelings of anxiety. Triggers are often rooted in a previous experience or situation where you felt fear or anxiety.
Small amounts of stress may be desired or even beneficial, as it can play a part in motivation or performance. Excessive amounts however can lead to many problems that can be harmful to your health.
Long term activation of the stress system and stress hormones can disrupt almost all your bodies processes. This puts you at increased risk of numerous health problems, including:
That's why its important to learn healthy ways to cope with the stressors in your life.
Stressful events are a fact of life and you may not be able to change your current situation, but you can take steps to manage the impact these events have on you.
You can learn to identify what stresses you and how to take care of yourself physically and emotionally when faced with stressful situations.
Hypnotherapy can help to identify the root of the stress or anxiety, whether its a situation, physical issue or a past experience and allow you to break free from negative thought patterns and react more positively and confidently to situations that may have previously made you anxious.
