Despite nearly 100,000 people in the UK dying from smoking-related illnesses each year, nearly one sixth of adults are still smokers. So what makes it so difficult to stop smoking?
It is because smoking has become a subconscious activity, an ingrained habit. Many smokers are unaware of the extent to which the subconscious influences their habit. So repetitive has this habit become, the subconscious mind truly believes that smoking cigarettes is vital for survival.
During the session I will explain how your subconscious has created such a dangerous habit and remind you of the dangers to mind and body of smoking and the numerous benefits of stopping smoking.
Solution focused clinical hypnotherapy is so successful at helping smokers quit as it is the only method that speaks directly to the subconscious mind. It uses the power of the subconscious mind to change your thinking processes, breaking negative behaviours and thinking patterns associated with smoking. The thoughts and behaviours the smoker holds are often what prevents them from successfully giving up. Under hypnosis the subconscious can be made to realise that smoking, rather than being necessary for survival, actually threatens the very survival of the smoker.
So if you have a genuine desire to stop smoking, it can be incredibly easy to stop and I can help you achieve that wonderful goal of being a non-smoker… for good.
The stop smoking session is one session lasting between one and a half and two hours.
No initial consultation is required. I will also give you a FREE relaxation CD and USB to take home with you.*

I would like to tell you how much my sessions with John have changed my life forever. Before I met him I suffered from depression, low self esteem, lack of confidence, worried constantly and drank too much. I had been like this for as long as I can remember.
After just one session with John I understood how my brain worked and had stopped dwelling on the past and worrying incessantly. I have gone on to have numerous sessions and I feel better than I have for years. I now have control of my mind instead of it having control of me. I feel very positive, am able to make decisions and most of all I am really happy. Things that would have once bothered me just don’t any more.
I would highly recommend sessions with John to anyone.*
Before the initial consultation, I didn't know what to expect and wondered if I would be able to speak openly about why I was there, but as soon as I sat down with John, I was instantly reassured. Not only did he very clearly explain his processes and techniques, he was obviously invested in helping me to achieve my goals. His excellent interpersonal skills and kind nature always helped me to relax during each session.
I've achieved far more than I initially set out to and these changes were so subtle at the time, it didn't feel arduous. But when I look at where I am now compared to where I was, I'm amazed at how far I've come in such a short time and eternally grateful to John for guiding me toward this outcome.
I can't recommend him enough.*
After realising that feeling anxious all the time and having a few panic attacks was not something I should have to put up with I decided I needed to make a change and do something to help me deal with everyday life. I had lost my confidence and was starting to avoid certain situations and was feeling unhappy and very tired in my own mind which made it hard for me to deal with home and work life in my usual way.
It was the best decision and I can honestly say it has changed my life, my way of thinking and understanding why I felt the way I did and what I had to do to change it and all of this happened in just a few months.
I would highly recommended his services.*
I went to see John with depression and anxiety which affected me on a daily basis. I was on medication and seeing a counsellor but did not feel like I was getting anywhere other than the dark hole I lived in. On my first session I was instantly made to feel at ease about my problems and felt comfortable to talk about the difficulties I had gone through over the previous years. After every session no matter how bad or dark a place I was in that day I always came away feeling more positive and upbeat. John gave me techniques to overcome my fears and anxiety, taught me how the brain works and gave me a cd which I used frequently to help me relax especially when my brain was working on overdrive feeding me with negativity. I can honestly say I now feel more like the old me and can see the light at the end of a very dark and very long tunnel.
I would highly recommended his services to anyone for any problem!*
