Hypnotherapy is said to act on the underlying impulses in order to weaken the desire to smoke or strengthen the will to stop. The first part of the session is finding out about your smoking habit and your reasons for stopping smoking. This is important because it allows me, during the hypnosis part of the session to give you suggestions that are in tune with your becoming a non smoker. Basically I want to get across to your unconscious mind during the hypnosis part of the session that you are not giving up something, but instead introducing into your life so many wonderful positive benefits. This is usually a one session therapy backed up with a CD for reinforcement.
