Why Hypnotherapy to Stop Smoking?

Hypnotherapy is the most effective way to stop smoking. It is more than 3 times more effective than nicotine replacement therapy and 15 times more effective than willpower alone.

Let’s start with some facts about smoking:

  • Cigarette smoking is the greatest single cause of illness and premature death in the UK.
  • About half of all smokers die from smoking-related diseases.
  • Smoking increases the risk of developing a number of other diseases.
  • A cigarette contains over 4000 chemicals, including arsenic, carbon monoxide, and insecticide.
  • A cigarette contains 43 known carcinogens (agents that cause cancer).
  • 300 non-smokers die each year from lung cancer due to passive smoking.
  • Smokers immune systems are less functional than non-smokers.
  • On average, each cigarette shortens a smoker’s life by around 11 minutes.
  • Smokers are more likely to get cancer than non-smokers. This is particularly true of lung cancer, throat cancer, and mouth cancer, which hardly ever affect non-smokers.
  • Smoking raises blood pressure, which can cause hypertension (high blood pressure) – a risk factor for heart attacks and stroke.
  • Couples who smoke are more likely to have fertility problems than couples who are non-smokers.
  • For men in their 30s and 40s, smoking increases the risk of erectile dysfunction (ED) by about 50 percent.

I offer a two-session intervention to stop smoking. If there are underlying emotional reasons for your smoking then these will need to be dealt with first and will take longer than two sessions. Most people, however, only require two sessions.

Is smoking addictive? Yes. The nicotine within a cigarette is highly addictive but the nicotine only stays in the body for 48-72 hours. After this time the addiction moves from chemical to psychological and this is why hypnosis is so effective as it deals with the habit of smoking, which is the learned behavior within the unconscious mind.

A person who smokes 20 cigarettes a day is spending £2727 a year and wasting 487 hours on smoking! Complaining there are not enough hours in the day? Then stop smoking. Give yourself nearly a £3000 a year pay rise by stopping smoking!

What our clients say


For years I’ve suffered with excess sweating when in any situation where the focus is on me or I’m nervous, like giving a presentation or being around new people. This was really affecting my job as my job involved a lot of presentations and meeting new people! My mum has had hypnosis before so I thought I would give it a try. I don’t know how Paul did it but after one session I felt more confident and was able to lead a normal life without excess sweating, he even stuck my hand to my leg which I thought was brilliant!



I’ve suffered total hair loss through alopecia, I’ve had no more than three hairs on my body at one point since it began three years ago . . .
Paul had hair growing back on my head and face within 2 days of our first session… Three sessions and four weeks later. I’ve got at least a hundred fine white hairs on my head and around 30 scattered elsewhere. It seems to be growing again . .
I also feel STRONGER and BETTER . . . I can never thank Paul enough



Hi Paul, I hope you’re keeping well. I just wanted to get in touch to let you know that following on from the successes during your alopecia hypnotherapy trial, my hair continued to grow and has now fully recovered. For the first time in 11 years I have my curls back and I look like me again! My wigs are back in their box and I honestly can’t thank you enough for setting me on the path to getting all of this fixed. All the best.



After nearly thirty years of experiencing very bad panic attacks when driving or travelling anywhere out of my comfort zone. A friend suggested I contact Paul and see if there was anything that he could possibly do to help.
Amazingly after just two sessions of treatment, being a combination of hypnosis and tapping techniques, I have been able to drive much further distances than I ever imagined possible. It has in many ways been life changing and I now realise how debilitating my anxiety has been.
Thank you Paul for all your help
