I have been meaning to write to you regarding my smoking. I have tried to give up on numerous occasions and have failed o give up smoking. I wondered whether hypnotherapy will help me to achieve his task. All I want to know is whether I can book a session with you directly.
You can certainly book a session with me by ringing the office on 07946 579645. I look forward to hearing from you.

I have been a smoker for about thirty-five years. I have now cut down to 5 cigarettes a day, but I am unable to stop smoking altogether. I can give up smoking for a day or two at a time, but after that I get really stressed, and feel that I need something to calm me down. Smoking calms me down. Smoking makes me relax. When I smoke, I become, somehow, philosophical and have the ability to deal with aspects of my life with more clarity. But as soon as I put the fag out, I feel dirty, as if I have done something wrong. Please help because I want to give up now. Smoking makes me feel wheezy when I go for a walk, and after I smoke people comment that I smell. Not all the time but when I least expect it. I hate it. I heard that hypnotherapy was really good and can help me give up very easily. Can you see me soon? 13SharonVigour
Yes. Stop Smoking Hypnotherapy is a very valuable tool and has helped many people give up smoking. At London Hypnotherapy UK, I use aversion therapy and a number of visualization and imagery in treatment. The results have been excellent. I have an appointment available for you next Wednesday. Please give the office a ring and they will sort out an appointment for you. The number is 0207 467 8564. The best of luck.

Dear London Hypnotherapy UK
I need help to stop smoking. I have tried nicotine patches but found that they just made me feel tired and sick. They also gave me a feeling that I was floating somehow. They gave me a buzz but I couldn’t control when I had the buzz. I know that this doesn’t make sense, but, if you think about it, the good thing about smoking is that you get a buzz when you want. You can breathe in and out and stop breathing the smoke in when you want. Nicotine patches are not the same, and they make you feel out of control.
I want to give up smoking but I need some help to do it. Because I am thinking about it and talking to my friends about smoking, it seems that every day someone has told me that they or a friend of theirs has had a good experience using hypnotherapy to help them to stop smoking. I looked on the London Hypnotherapy UK website and saw that you offer Stop Smoking Hypnotherapy, and I thought that I would ask you how safe it was and what happens. I want to stop smoking but I don’t know how to do it. I have been smoking since the age of 14 and I am hooked on smoking. As soon as I get up I have a cigarette. After breakfast, I smoke another one, and after I get off the bus and after I get off the next bus. My whole life seems to revolve around smoking these things. I work in central London and I am looking for a hypnotherapist in central London. I also want a top hypnotherapist, one that is fully trained and knows what he or she is talking about. London is so stressful, and I don’t know whether I can stop smoking while working here in London. But can you help? Thanks Christine
Stop Smoking Hypnotherapy is a very effective and safe form of treatment. You are in control, and you will aware of everything that happens during the process. There are no side effects. Stop Smoking Hypnotherapy is also a very quick process. Many clients have given up in one session, although some people come for two or three sessions. I have had people that have come to me for a longer period of time but they usually have other issues that they want to talk to me about. So, hypnotherapy–the approach I use is aversion therapy–is very powerful and it is not a long drawn out process. If you would like to make a booking, please ring 0207 467 8564. As you say, London Hypnotherapy UK is based in central London. The nearest stop is Oxford Circus which is on the Bakerloo and Victoria lines.

hello can you help me
i want to give up smoking and i think that a hypnotist is good. come from mexico. smoke lots. can hypnotherapy help?
Dear M. Hypnotherapy is a very useful technique and can certainly help you to stop smoking. If you would like to book a session, please ring 0207 467 8564.
I am so worried. I need to find a therapist to help me to stop smoking. i gather that you can get help and that a hypnotist can help me with these problems. I need to understand about it. Can it help? Will it make me do anything that I don’t want to do and how long will it take. I also need to find out a little bit about smoking and what it does to you. Can you help?
First it is important that you know that I am a psychotherapist and a hypnotherapist and I am not a medically trained doctor. Second, we generally talk about hypnotists when we refer to those menaces of society that go on stage and take advantage of people. Hypnotherapy, when it is done in the consulting room by a highly trained practitioner, is very different. Here, you are in control. The hypnotherapist will help you to do what you want to do, which, in this case is to stop smoking. In addition, once you have achieved this, it will help you to achieve other things in life. When you book your appointment, you are already ready to stop smoking.
Stop Smoking Hypnotherapy is a very safe and powerful form of treatment. I have begun to call this therapy ‘Stop Smoking Hypnotherapy‘; however, really this term is something of a misnomer. It refers to any hypnotherapy programme which help individuals to give up smoking. Some people call it Smoking Cessation Hypnotherapy. However, there are all sorts of different techniques that hypnotherapists use and they all come under the remit of Stop Smoking Hypnotherapy.
At London Hypnotherapy UK, the main technique is imaginal aversion therapy–since Cautela and is articles in the sixties, this is now known as covert sensitization. During this process, after induction–that is to say, once ‘trance’ has taken place–smoking is paired with feeling nauseous and sick or some other unpleasant sensation. This is repeated throughout the day–i.e. trials are given so that before you take the cigarette or buy the cigarette, you will feel these unpleasant feelings. The aversion therapy is combined with future orientation in time, when you have already given up smoking, ego strengthening, and some other powerful visualizations. The approach is quick and some people only have one or two sessions.
Good luck and I hope you book an appointment soon.
