The most comprehensive study into methods of quitting, reported in New Scientist Magazine, found that "hypnotherapy enjoys a greater success rate than any other method in helping people stop smoking." So why does hypnosis work so well? And how is it that you can quit in just a single session of hypnosis when other methods can take weeks or even months?

The reason hypnosis works so well is easy to understand. Smoking, like all habits, is controlled by the unconscious part of the mind. Hypnosis helps us access the REM state - nature’s optimal learning state - and it is in this state that your deeper, unconscious mind is more open to new ideas and suggestions. When your unconscious is reprogrammed you don’t have to try not to smoke; the urge is simply no longer there.

I use a similar strategy to help massively in shaking off any other drug addiction just as easily.

My name is Ran Davies and I quit smoking 20-25 a day 3 years ago. I’m a hypnotherapist in Alsager and, knowing exactly how hard it can be, I specialise in helping people to quit the easy way. Hypnotherapy has an excellent success rate in this area because it can reduce or eliminate your desire to use the drug and help you adopt a healthier and much happier mindset, freeing yourself at last from dependency and the ridiculous waste of money. And you’ll almost remain healthier for longer.

Most subjects find hypnosis to be extremely relaxing and comfortable. After the session people generally feel energised and very good about themselves.

Smoking cigarettes currently costs people around £3,000 per year. I charge £100 which is probably what you’re setting fire to about every fortnight! The cost of other drugs is either the about the same or far more*. Your session of about 2 hours will consist of a 30-minute introduction to hypnotherapy and how it works followed by the hypnotherapy itself. After the 30-minute introduction I will ask you if you want to go ahead with the treatment and if you decide not to, there will be no charge.

You will have the option of a shorter follow-up hypnotherapy session for £40 which most people don’t need. This builds on the initial work to further increase your resilience during the time while the last of the drug is leaving your body and increases your self-confidence about remaining healthier permanently.
