On 6th of June Dr David Kraft will be giving a presentation on his approach to smoking cessation. Smoking has a deleterious effect on nearly every organ in the body. Dr Kraft has spent a considerable time helping many people give up smoking; many individuals that have given up smoking say that they feel the immediate effects of being a non smoker. David has had a considerable success helping people to give up smoking and many have given up in one session. The smoking cessation programme is a complete abstinence programme. It is important that clients work together with the therapist and make a verbal contract that they will never smoke a cigarette again. The treatment is a powerful one. It reduces or, in some cases, eliminates cravings, and the use of aversion is a particularly helpful strategy. Dr Kraft also uses a split screen imagery approach which encourages clients to choose the healthy option, and to give up smoking.
