Can Hypnotherapy help?
Quitting smoking can be a real challenge and sometimes despite all our best efforts the old cravings return and soon we're back to square 1.
Hypnotherapy is a popular treatment for smokers trying to quit smoking either as a complimentary service alongside various products or as a standalone treatment and in many cases hypnotherapy has worked when all other treatments have failed.
One of the key benefits of using Hypnotherapy is the lack of chemical support that is required. Most stop smoking aids contain Nicotine and other harmful chemicals and rely on an archaic weening process. or some clients Hypnotherapy can have immediate effect reducing the cravings and in some cases eliminating them all together in just a few sessions.
