Project Description

Stop Smoking

Are you ready to kick the habit? As an ex-smoker myself, I know that it can be a daunting prospect! Do you feel like you have two minds? One that says stop but another that keeps trying to persuade you to have a cigarette? I know I did.

This one-off, double length session explains why you have conflicting messages coming from your brain and how you can work to control them. We spend a lot of time talking through why you smoke, what you do and don’t like about it, as well as highlighting the damage this habit causes to both your physical and mental health.

We then have a trance session to reinforce what’s been said and I will give you a relaxation CD or download link for you to take with you. I can also supply you with a personalised anti-smoking CD on request. There is an additional charge for this service.

How it Helps

There are a number of research papers which report a higher success rate for those smokers using hypnosis to stop smoking than those who quit on their own, for example:

Hypnosis Most Effective Says Largest Study Ever: 3 Times as Effective as Patch and 15 Times as Effective as Willpower.
Hypnosis is the most effective way of giving up smoking, according to the largest ever scientific comparison of ways of breaking the habit. A meta-analysis, statistically combining results of more than 600 studies of 72,000 people from America and Europe to compare various methods of quitting. On average, hypnosis was over three times as effective as nicotine replacement methods and 15 times as effective as trying to quit alone.[University of Iowa, Journal of Applied Psychology, How One in Five Give Up Smoking. October 1992]

Hypnosis Patients Twice As Likely To Remain Smoke-Free After Two Years
Study of 71 smokers showed that after a two-year follow up, patients that quit with hypnosis were twice as likely to remain smoke-free than those who quit on their own.[Guided health imagery for smoking cessation and long-term abstinence. Wynd, CA. Journal of Nursing Scholarship, 2005; 37:3, pages 245-250]

Just want to say a BIG THANK YOU. I felt really positive all the way round 102 miles. I have never felt like that in any event before. Even knowing I could have been 4-5 hours faster has not made me feel negative and annoyed. I’m deffo in a much better place now

Sue

I’ve just encountered my first spider! I calmly got a cup and paper and placed it outside! THANK YOU!

Ruth

I think it’s really helped improve my life.

Kim

Following a few traumatic years after the very quick loss of mum after being diagnosed with cancer and being there for my dad and losing him also two and half years later with cancer the mental stress had taken its toll. I gave into antidepressants, I thought I could cope but knew I wasn’t. I gave myself a timeline of only 12 months to be on these and I kept to it. At this point I was also working on a very important project at work and personally I needed to find my inner strength and remove layers of built up stress and anxiety, that’s when I spoke to Karen. The difference in how I feel, how I deal with various situations and the way I look at life has totally changed, my anxiety no longer exists, I approach life’s challenges in a more relaxed and calm manner. You need to invest in the most important aspect of your health, your mind.

Jane

Sought help from Karen for a couple of phobias after she was referred to me by a friend. From the first time we met, Karen made me feel really comfortable and relaxed. She puts me really at ease and helped me to gain the confidence to tackle my fears. I can’t recommend Karen highly enough. Thank you Karen.

Bevan

I would highly recommend Karen for hypnotherapy. I first attended a relax session just to try it out and found that actually I was a lot more stressed out than I realised. The relaxation helped me to de-stress and also the chat before helped me to reassess my work life balance and make some pretty big decisions at work which ultimately made me speak up and change things. The positive thinking and reinforcing that through the subconscious is now part of my everyday thought processes and I have found that I am much happier. I can spot now when I am under too much pressure and can speak up before it gets to too much a stressful place. It is so important to be able to see these signs early before stress takes over and does some very strange things with your mind!.

Jemma

I have been to see Karen about issues with confidence. Karen is a very calm and easy person to talk to. She is very good at explaining how the mind works, why we can become stressed and anxious and has helped me to think more positively about my life. The hypnotherapy itself is very relaxing but the message gets through. As a result I feel more in control and confident that I will be able to deal with whatever life throws at me. It has had a positive effect on my life and I would have no hesitation in recommending Karen.

Karen

For as long as I can remember I have been afraid of heights. Started out as an issue I acknowledged with mild anxiety but some 40 years later became a full-blown fear which affected my life and filled me with dread. To the point that I had to check what I was doing daily to ensure that I would avoid doing anything involving height. Particularly edges. Especially bridges. I met Karen some time ago on a counselling course and it was when she posted that she was studying hypnotherapy I contacted her to challenge her to help me get over this, what was to me an irrational but real fear. I didn’t expect much but was willing to give it a go. The result was astonishing. When I next had an issue to deal with, even though I was aware of my tension, I was able to relax enough to get through the situation which has now perpetuated my confidence. I am now able to function with many situations where in the past I would have moved heaven and earth to avoid. I can wholly recommend this therapy with Karen.

Mike

I was watching TV tonight and out of the corner of my eye I saw a black shape about the size of a conker gliding on my wall. It was a spider. My usual reaction of a flutter of the heart didn’t happen, and I just paused my TV, got a cup and put it out my window. No hassle, no reaction whatsoever! Then I spotted another one, I did the same thing of capturing it and putting it out of my window, as it is only an enemy of my imagination, but was able to keep my cool, calm composure that you were able to teach me! I could not be more thankful for what you have enabled me to do! I would have cried and screamed at my parents before I had ant sessions with you.

Ruth

Just a quick update, have been cigarette free for two weeks……….it has been incredibly easy and I want to thank you, I didn’t think it would be so easy. Very pleased and proud of myself.
