Frequently Asked Questions

What is hypnotherapy?

The most straightforward way to explain what is hypnotherapy is: hypnotherapy is a form of relaxation therapy that makes you more susceptible to positive suggestions.

How many sessions will I need?

For quitting smoking most people stop with just one session, but very occasionally someone may need a couple of back-up sessions. Unlike other issues such as weight loss or anxiety disorders the results for quitting smoking are usually immediate.

Straight after your first session, you will begin to establish new patterns. You will eliminate the old behaviours and habits that were holding you back.

How much does the program cost?

The program investment is $599 which includes a 2-hour session plus a backup session and phone support, if required.

What is your success rate?

If you want to quit and are ready to quit you will quit with the Quit Smoking Program.

The method is extremely effective and efficient. We have an excellent success rate. Out of 100 clients, only 3 to 4 require a backup session. Those who need more time get the support and help they need until they are a confident non-smoker.

I’ve tried patches and nicotine chewing gum and they did not work?

With patches etc. the nicotine is still getting into your system. Smoking is a habit and a psychological addiction which is why hypnosis is so effective with this problem. Hypnotherapy is more effective than other methods such as nicotine chewing gum or patches.

Hypnotherapy does not have any harmful side effects.

Will I still get the cravings afterward?

Most of my clients do not have cravings after the hypnotherapy. The goal of hypnosis is to make you feel extremely proud and positive about being a non-smoker.

I went to someone once before and it didn’t work?

There could be a number of reasons why it didn’t work for you – maybe you were not ready and did not really want to quit or maybe you were nervous and not able to relax into the hypnosis.

I always work with my clients until they are confident they are a non-smoker for life.

What will I feel?

You will feel very relaxed. Everyone experiences hypnosis in their own way and that can range from a state of full awareness to a state of deep relaxation.  The hypnotic feeling is very similar to how you feel in the evening just prior to falling asleep.

Hypnosis is a state of relaxation. During this state, the mind is open to making the change on an unconscious level.  You will feel aware of what is going on and in complete control at all times. You will hear everything said and will remember everything that takes place.

How does Hypnotherapy work?

Hypnotherapy puts you in a deeply relaxed and calm state of mind which make you open to suggestion. Through Hypnosis you will focus directly on a goal to achieve positive change to be able to quit smoking. Hypnosis will strengthen your will-power. Through hypnosis will be able to re-program a belief you have and break triggers and associations.
