In this article, I’d like to talk specifically about how I help people quit smoking with hypnosis.
How does hypnosis work?
Hypnosis is not a magic pill, but it can be a powerful tool for self-improvement and positive change.
We’ve explored how hypnosis works by rephrasing your internal dialogue, creating a positive mindset that can help you achieve your goals. Another way to understand the process, is that hypnosis taps into the power of your subconscious mind, planting positive and empowering messages, which in-turn instill self-confidence. Ultimately, this can help you control your conscious thoughts and choices.
I’ve had clients tell me that hypnosis helped them “rewire” their brain and process things differently. For example, situations that used to be processed negatively and caused stress, could now be handled in a positive way with hypnosis.
Hypnosis works by:
- Tapping into the power of your subconscious mind
- Rephrasing your internal dialogue
- Rewiring the brain
- Inspiring change from the inside out
In this way, hypnosis can help people overcome all kinds of problems, from obesity to chain-smoking, in a way that is safe, natural, pain-free, and relaxing.
An Example of Quitting Smoking With Hypnosis
One of our clients at the Greater Toronto Hypnosis Centre, is an elderly woman who had been smoking since the age of 12. She was finally able to kick the habit with hypnosis, but after quitting, she still had cravings. Every smoker knows what that’s like, and how impossible it can be to say no to them—no matter how resolved you are to quit.
Here is what hypnosis did for her: For the first time in her life, it made the cravings manageable. They didn’t disappear, but hypnosis gave her to power she needed to control them. What an incredible difference it made in her life!
Of course, hypnosis impacts everyone differently. Other clients who have come to see me to stop smoking have said that their cravings disappeared after their first hypnosis session.
