Just One Solution Focused Hypnotherapy session could end your addiction!

Helping clients to stop smoking is usually the first thing people think of when they find out that I am a hypnotherapist. And it is true that hypnosis is a very effective way of ending a smoking addiction.

”The use of hypnosis in stop smoking therapy is the most effective help available to those who are addicted to smoking.”

(British Medical Association)

The traditional hypnosis method focuses on three affirmations that clients need to repeat to themselves whenever they feel the urge to have cigarette. They are taught this as a form of self-hypnosis.

  • Smoking poisons the body
  • You need your body to live
  • You should respect your body and protect it.

But don’t smokers already know these things? Yes they do! The question is “What’s holding them back?”

Building A Stop Smoking Solution Together

My Solution Focused Hypnotherapy sessions find a solution for each client. You have already taken the first step by contacting me. Your conscious desire to stop smoking now needs to be linked to your subconscious mind so that your brain can become focused on the solution.

Firstly, you learn about how the brain works and how you can use it to change, if you want to. Together we explore the reasons why your brain thinks it’s a good idea to smoke, even though all the information is telling you that it’s not.

Understanding the smoking habit is fundamental to stopping it. Your subconscious is expecting you to smoke and it doesn’t want to change. It has created an association with all the times that smoking helps you. When you are stressed or bored . When you have your first cup of coffee or that glass of wine. Perhaps smoking breaks up your day at work.

We then move on to changing these thought patterns. Identifying your strengths and setting achievable goals so that you can become an ex-smoker. This session is very positive and personal to the client.

‘A useful way to reflect and take time to take stock and nurture their mind and have new strategies for self-care’ says a recent client.

We conclude with 30-40 minutes of hypnosis allowing the subconscious mind to “rewire” itself. Laying down a new pattern of behaviour, that of a non- smoker.

Stop Smoking Success Stories

“Wow this lady is a life saver in my eyes.  40 to 60 cigarettes a day I was smoking. With asthma. One visit and I have not had one cigarette. 14th March 2016 is a day I will always remember.”


“I wasn’t sure that hypnotherapy was for me or what I wanted but decided to give it a go anyway. Sarah was first class from first contact onwards and after smoking for over 25 years I am astounded at the results. I don’t even get any cravings anymore. It worked instantly!  Sarah comes highly recommended from me. She has a fabulous way of dealing with her clients. She is lovely and her soft Irish voice is great to listen to and very soothing. Thanks Sarah, truly grateful”

No guarantees. But I offer a positive solution focused approach to ending your smoking addiction. Based on the very best evidence and professional experience.

Allowing you to take that vital step towards a happier, healthier life with confidence.
