Hypnotherapy For Stopping Smoking
Naomi - Support With Stopping Smoking
"I would definitely recommend Rosie, I've been stopped smoking for 9 weeks the longest I've done in 23 years."
Supporting people to stop smoking once and for all is one of the areas I am most passionate about in my work as a hypnotherapist. Many a time clients tell me they have previously tried on multiple occasions using multiple different methods to stop, yet not found success just yet. The wonderful thing about hypnotherapy is that it enables us to work together to get to the root of what might have pulled you back to smoking in the past & set out a clear path for your future smoke free.
As with any change in life, you need to be ready for it. You may not know exactly how you are going to make it happen, but it's important to want it. This may be for a variety of reasons such as finances, health, smell, or simply no longer having that feeling hanging over you every day that you should be stopping. The great thing is that we can work with whatever is motivating you to make this a lasting change.
All of my sessions are tailored to each client as an individual - we'll work together to find a way forward that fits with your lifestyle, motivations and how you'd like your future to be. I use a variety of different techniques including practical advice on ways to find comfort and enjoyment in other areas of your life.
Whatever your journey so far, hypnotherapy can be an amazing support to help make this change feel natural and one that really lasts. As you'll already know, nothing can make you stop smoking until you feel ready and decide that the time is right for you. Hypnotherapy can be effective in supporting you to stop when you are well and truly ready.
I offer a 3 step stop smoking package which I have found to be the most effective way of supporting clients with this change. The 3 steps support you to feel prepared for the change before starting and then fully supported throughout the process too.
The first step is to help you prepare for this change. When we speak to book your appointment, I will provide you with steps you can take to prepare for this change in advance of our first session. Small shifts in your habits & thinking leading up to this are really helpful.
The second step is our hypnotherapy session which usually lasts for 2 hours. During this session I spend the first part understanding your history with smoking, such as previous attempts to stop, why you went back to it and what your motivation is now for stopping. We also explore what you feel smoking gives you so I can equip you with some coping strategies to help make the transition easier and more natural for you. The second part of the session is hypnosis where we'll really focus on creating those changes you're wanting.
The third step is a follow up session approximately a week later & we can use it to focus on anything relating to your stop smoking experience. For instance some people like to use this session to combat any food cravings if they have any or reward themselves with a lovely relaxation session instead, both of which really help to embed the change.
My stop smoking package can be adapted too for clients that feel they would benefit from a hypnotherapy session to prepare them a week or two before taking the step to stop smoking. I tailor each of my sessions to my clients and we’ll discuss what feels right for your journey to becoming a non-smoker once and for all.
I charge £200 for my stop smoking program.
I’m always happy to have an informal chat to help you understand whether hypnotherapy is right for you so please get in touch with me either by calling me on 07305870208 or via my contact form. Supporting people to make this change is something I'm really passionate about as it has the potential to make such a positive impact in so many areas of a person's life. If you are considering this change and are feeling motivated towards a life free from cigarettes, I'd love to hear from you.
Alice - Support With Stopping Smoking
"My sessions were over Zoom, which is really easy to use and was very convenient for me. I got comfortable in my own space which I found very relaxing. Rosie was so kind and my sessions were designed for my individual story. The best thing is I've been a non smoker now for 3 months. Also I've saved the environment a car journey and me some time xx."
Helen - Support With Stopping Smoking & Self Improvement
"Being a 'down to earth', northern, working class woman, I'd always been quite sceptical about things like hypnosis and the power of the mind. Not for any particular reason other than, it all sounded a bit 'mystical' and 'fanciful'. After having attended several sessions with Rosie Cathro, I've changed my mind. There is nothing fanciful about Rosie's sessions. Instead, I was given a comprehensive, well thought out, practical way of improving my life for the better.
Rosie's detailed and bespoke programme has helped me remove self constructed barriers in many areas of my life – some of which I hadn't even been aware of until Rosie reconnected me with the depths of my subconscious. These areas include personal relationships, self doubt, self criticism, health improvement and many others.
The biggest practical result has been to help me stop smoking. I've been a smoker for over thirty years and, thanks to Rosie's sessions, I have broken free of this debilitating and life restricting addiction. Rosie has a relaxed and unfussy style of approach which helped me open my mind to different ways of developing my own potential. For that, I can't thank her enough."
