Our Unique Approach

Let's talk about why it has been so hard to quit.

 Why People Don't Stop Smoking

Most people know that if they stop smoking right now… 

      • They will save several thousand dollars a year. 
                                                                              • They may add years to their life. 
                                                                                   • They could save their health--before it's too late.




       So, why do people continue to smoke??

With more than 20 years combined experience in dealing with the mind, and nearly 100,000 clients, both in the USA and in the UK, we have found the answer to be the same all over the world. I t all comes down to one thing...Fear.

   Fear that you'll have to give up your pleasure or crutch 
                  • Fear that you won't be able to enjoy life or handle stress 
                            • Fear that you will put on weight
                                      • Fear that you'll have to go through an awful trauma to get free
                                                 • Fear that you'll never get completely free of the cravings.

                                                 All of these fears are just examples of one overriding fear. 
                                       The one simple reason that you have not stopped smoking is that you:
                     Fear that it is going to be too painful and too difficult!
*Your habit or (unconscious behavior) is stored in the subconscious or (unconscious mind).  It has been successfully programed to smoke since ever since you first got good at it.*
                                                                    Well good news!...

Our Advanced Hypnosis Techniques make it Easy

In fact, our unique hypnosis technique makes it so easy that after only one hour you'll leave a happy non-smoker -- not feeling deprived, not feeling that you've made a sacrifice, and not feeling any pain. Instead, you'll have a huge sense of relief and elation that you have at last achieved what all smokers long to achieve: you have become a happy, permanent, non-smoker.

When smokers try to stop with other methods they suffer misery and depression caused by the feeling that they are being deprived of a pleasure or a crutch. The beauty of hypnosis, and the way we use hypnosis in particular, is that it removes this feeling of deprivation. It removes the need, and the desire, to smoke. You won't need useless aids, gimmicks, or substitutes. No nicotine gum or patches. No inhalers or nasal sprays. No needles or lasers. All that you have to do with hypnosis is sit back in a nice comfortable chair, and relax. It doesn't get much easier than that!

 Our Unique Approach

Since the British Medical Association (BMA) and the American Medical Association (AMA) approved the use of clinical hypnosis in the 1950s, thousands of people have found hypnosis to be an effective way to stop smoking, lose weight, and otherwise improve their lives. Of course, there are varying degrees of success with hypnosis because much depends upon the skill, experience, and general competence of the individual hypnotherapist - as well as the techniques being used by them. The beauty of our unique approach is that we use the best of traditional hypnotherapy techniques, and combine them with the new science of Neuro- Linguistic Programming (NLP), which takes hypnosis to an even greater level of effectiveness.

One of the reasons why it's not painful or difficult to stop smoking with our method, in fact, one of the reasons why it is so easy, is that we transfer the pleasure derived from smoking to a healthier habit of your choice (e.g. exercise, drinking more water, (relaxation). This is the reason why, with us, there is No unwanted weight gain or other problems associated with kicking the habit - the only side-effects are an increase in health, wealth, and freedom.  

Hypnosis is proudly a legal stand alone alternative wellness profession and is not a licensed healing arts modality.

Hypnosis has been safely and effectively used for hundreds of years. It is recognized, and used by The American Medical Association (AMA), the American Psychiatric Association (APA), and the British Medical Association (BMA).
