Quit smoking and live longer

Sadly, there is no ‘easy way’ to quit smoking, despite all the ‘hype’ that you see and hear. However, it is true that research shows that hypnotherapy appears to be the most successful way * to stop smoking. In fact, research indicates that you are almost twice as likely to quit smoking with hypnotherapy as you are with patches, gum or other drugs. You do still need some willpower, a belief that hypnotherapy can help you and a deep desire to want to quit. If all these things are in place, then there is no reason why you shouldn’t be able to quit. Using a mix of advanced structured hypnotherapy, NLP and behavioural psychology (as we do at The Odiham Clinic) yields a success rate of around 95%! This includes people who have smoked since preteen years and those on over 60 per day.

Garry believes his method of quit smoking to be the best available, In fact, he is so confident that he offers a guarantee, that if you have any problems you can return for another session absolutely free. The number of people who he sees requiring backup currently run at 2-3 per year. Due to his continued success over many years with this method, he sees ‘word of mouth’ clients from all over the country (and beyond), many travelling long distances for him to assist them in quitting. He also receives many GP referrals and has helped many GP’s and other health care professionals to quit!

What’s involved?

It is a single session taking between one and a half and two hours and includes some unique ‘supporting’ material. It encompasses traditional, analytical and advanced structured hypnotherapy techniques, NLP and psychological priming amongst the tools used. It is personalised for each person so worries, such as replacing smoking with food are dealt with.
