Hypnosis for Smoking Addictions: How it Works
Smoking is a particularly challenging addiction to break because it is both a mental and physical addiction. Many store-bought cessation aids––like nicotine patches––are useful in cutting off your physical (conscious) cravings. Your psychological (subconscious) addiction, however, remains active. Your subconscious addiction is more powerful than your conscious urges. It is what tells you to reach for a cigarette when you’re stressed and triggers the need for a smoke after dinner.
Padman Pillai’s intensive hypnotherapy sessions are effective because they target your subconscious mind directly. Using a variety of clinical methods and strategies, Padman Pillai will relax your state of mind and disconnect it from the conscious part of your brain. In this trance-like (but still aware) state, you will be more receptive to new information. This is where we begin reframing your perceptions about smoking, effectively retraining your brain to break your existing smoking habits and patterns.
Hypnotherapy to Stop Smoking: What Do the Sessions Entail?
Our hypnotherapy for quitting smoking sessions are 90 minutes long, but the results last a lifetime. 94% of Padman Pillai’s clients successfully overcome their smoking addictions after the first session and do not require further treatment. However, in some cases, multiple sessions may be necessary.
Quit Smoking for Good with Hypnotherapy
Surface-level methods like patches and pills may help temporarily, but they won’t attack your smoking addiction at its source. Much like pulling a weed, you have to remove the root if you don’t want it to grow back after time. Hypnosis for quitting smoking gets to the very bottom of your addiction. Padman Pillai will address your psychological and emotional ties to the drug, allowing you to walk out of our clinic with a reframed and renewed state of mind.
