Hypnosis to Stop Smoking
Smoking Cessation Program
Pathways Counseling offers a unique, individualized smoking cessation program which combines cognitive behavioral coaching with hypnotherapy. This method has been proven to be very effective – even for those who have struggled for years and have been unsuccessful with other methods.
In this program, you’ll get personalized, one on one support to retrain your brain to think like a non-smoker and learn the skills you need to permanently stop smoking.
How Our Program Works
Here’s how this one-on-one, customized hypnosis program to stop smoking works:
Session One: Get Started
For your first session, we create a unique, customized stop smoking plan for you. We’ll identify your triggers, set a quit date, and you’ll be given some tools to help you reduce your cravings right from the start.
Session Two: Smoking Cessation Session
On your quit date, you will have your customized stop smoking session. You’ll walk out of the session feeling great. Many of our clients report that they leave this session feeling like they are truly quitting for good.
Session Three: Reinforcement Session
In this session, we’ll reinforce how well you are already doing. We’ll teach you strategies to handle any challenging situations in the future. You’ll have everything you need to remain a permanent non-smoker!
Is Hypnotherapy for Me?
If you're unsure about trying hypnosis to stop smoking, we understand. However, challenge yourself with the following questions:
Have you tried several methods to quit smoking, such as nicotine replacement, going “cold turkey” or medications?
When you’ve tried to quit in the past, was it hard to manage the cravings?
Have you been able to quit for a while - but then ended up smoking up again?
Are you worried that you don’t have enough “willpower” to quit smoking for good?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, hypnosis might be a good option. There is nothing wrong with you, of course, but you may have relapsed because previous smoking cessation programs or strategies you've tried haven't address the underlying problem. With hypnosis, you can get right to the root of the issue.
If you’re ready to kick the habit once and for all - you can! At Pathways Counseling Services, Valerie Dawson can offer you the customized sessions to help you to be a non-smoker once and for all.
