How to Stop Smoking
If you want to stop smoking and have tried & failed on numerous occasions, then you should definitely try our “Thrive as a Non Smoker” programme. The programme will teach you how to stop smoking, get over your belief that you are addicted to smoking or addicted to your e-cigs.
Scientific research carried out by New Scientist has shown that quitting smoking with hypnosis is the most effective way to quit cigarettes permanently and self hypnosis training can be incorporated into the Thrive as a Non Smoker Programme if needed.
Thrive is specialised Smoking Cessation programme combines learning about why you smoke, the habits and belief systems which keep you smoking along with powerful Clinical Self Hypnosis to help you make fundamental changes to your “beliefs” about Smoking and Nicotine addiction and to then develop the mind-set of a “non-smoker”.

The skills and knowledge that I can teach will help to strengthen your psychological foundations of how in control you feel in relation to your experiences and how you feel about yourself ie your self esteem, this in turn will also allow you to avoid feeling uncomfortable around your peers, friends and on those occasions when you may have to speak publicly or in a group of friends or colleagues and any other social situations you may find yourself in. This means that you can free yourself up from self doubt, fears, phobias, stress, the feeling of not being good enough, unwanted habits, sleep issues, anger, irritability, achieve your goals and set new ones etc. Living the life you see for yourself and helping yourself get on the right track to health, happiness, success and a bright future.

The latest addition to the Thrive Programme portfolio of manuals includes the ‘Fly Happy’ manual. I provide 1-1 sessions for my clients who would like to learn how to go on their holidays and business flights free from the anticipatory and real time anxiety that they usually experience.
Hypnosis also has a very good reputation for dealing with more “minor” phobias such as the Fear of Flying with many Airlines offering Hypnotherapy to their customers! I have treated many people over the years for fear of flying with extremely good results.
