I know someone who did the one session hypnotherapy to quit and was succesful. (I’ll have to double check who it was) I do wonder how much of it can be contributed to the therapy and how much to the price tag and the fear of losing face after she told everyone about it. But whatever works…

“I currently training in hypnotherapy and can do hypnotherapy sessions, free of charge.”

So you’re not qualified

“Specifically I would like to stop smoking.”

Willl power, save yourself wasting money

Hypnotherapy doesn’t work for everybody, some people cannot be hypnotised, as myself, I’m too strong willed. I’ve been told by a hypnotist.

Hi, if you’re still looking to quit smoking, I am a hypnotherapist specialising in the Quit Cigarettes in 60 Minutes program. This program is 95% successful after just 1 session! Plus it comes with a lifetime guarantee. My website has more details: http://www.QuitCigarettesLifeCoach.com.

I hear what you are saying, I am not a total believer but i think it may be more of case of pushing you in the right direction once committed. Anyway, i have tried every method except hypontherapy and accupuncture so I don’t have much to lose.

Well, if you’re going to give it a go, I’d recommend at least thoroughly checking their credentials beforehand. There is no govt regulation of hypnotherapy, and any charlatan can rent an office and call themselves a hypnotherapist. And like all pseudo-sciences, they rely on people who are in the “I have nothing to lose” frame of mind; remember, you always have your hard-earned money to lose

BTW, have you considered e-cigs? That’s how I quit smoking a year ago. Of course, like everything else, there’s no guarantees and it’s not for everyone, but at least I don’t stand to profit from your decision when I suggest this. If you haven’t yet looked into them, you should

And while hypnotherapy is a grey area, I can state categorically that acupuncture is COMPLETE crap. There’s a modicum of evidence to suggest it can help with some back pain issues (although the same evidence suggests that anyone can do it, with no training required), but as far as quitting smoking goes, you might as well throw your money down the drain. Quackwatch.org is a good site to read up on some of these things. Hell, I just checked Wikipedia and even that has all you need to know about acupuncture

If you do end up going the hypnotherapy route, I’d be interested to hear your thoughts afterwards (still wouldn’t recommend it though)

My website is http://www.canberrahypnotist.com.au

The website will also clear the misconceptions about hypnosis.

Hrm, maybe I should clarify actually…hypnotherapy itself isn’t completely without merit. The problem is more when people claim that it is all that is required to treat a condition, or that it is a panacea, or that it involves re-visiting “past lives” and other such ridiculous claims.

Best of luck with quitting smoking 🙂

Personally, I would recommend not believing in pseudo-science…

My 20 year old daughter saw these people and she hasn’t smoked for over 6 months now…..

I used hypnosis to quit smoking. That was nearly 20 years ago. Arguably one of the better things I have done. This is NOT like the hypnosis as entertainment you might see at a club. Some people are better subjects than others. Good luck with it.

I am a clinical hypnotherapist in Canberra and have worked with a lot of people who came to give up smoking. I use is a 3 visit process that works on the foundation emotion rather than just aversion therapy. Once the emotional base is dealt with there is generally no transfer of addiction once the smoking has ceased.
