Quit Smoking For Stoptober 2015

Is Stoptober 2015 a good starting point to quit smoking ?

ivertherapy can help

Of course, as you wisely have made that first step to quit. Do you genuinely want to remain a non-smoker. Hypnotherapy is fastest becoming the favourite amongst the stars to quit smoking. The list includes Ben Affleck, Matt Damon and Ewan McGregor. Why ? Because it has one of the highest success rates to quit smoking permanently. And it will work for you!

But I am afraid of quitting permanently ?  Some smokers feel it`s part of their identity. Think about this. You are never a smoker, just some-one who smokes cigarettes; it is the cigarettes that smoke. This means smoking cigarettes are not part of you, but an external action.                                                                     Life and the problems it throws at us is still there, with or without cigarettes. Smoking is an additional burden- to your finances and health.                   Hypnotherapy ends that fear and gives you the confidence and pride to move on to a healthy outlook, for life.

Addiction or habit ? some smokers can quit overnight, some only smoke socialising, most won`t smoke in front of their children or sleep through the night without the need to smoke. Addiction wouldn`t allow that luxury.

What is a habit ? Smoking by it`s very nature is a repetitive action. So as with anything that is repeated often enough, the mind takes this on board as normality and then this becomes a habit. Habits are really useful, because as with any habit it is way below conscious thought, so habits initiate that inner automated response. As any habituated action is undertaken without seemingly, having to think about it, so if necessary, will consequently allow the mind to focus efficiently on other tasks. Why do some smokers feel powerless to quit ?  The part of the mind that runs the smoking habit loves the comfort of repetition and routine. Consequently hates change. Any habit starts to feel normal so being a non-smoker can feel as though there is something missing without cigarettes.

What about the nicotine ? Nicotine does play  a part in all this, but not such a large part as many believe. After around 48-72 hours of stopping there is no nicotine left in your system. It is more about the associations you have built up over time. If a smoker always lights up at the end of meal this will somehow seem to finish and round it off ; the same may apply to alcohol. Or to relieve boredom while they decide what to do next. These are examples of triggers that often initiate the need for a cigarette and are far more powerful than nicotine.                                                                                                           Smokers condition themselves to expect and recieve some benefit from smoking a cigarette. When there is that expection of some benefit from smoking, the thought of this triggers off the mind to totally focus on lighting up. So much so, people are, in essence, self hypnotising themselves to smoke.Why hypnotherapy?  The fact smokers are so focused on that next cigarette the best way to redirect those thoughts are to work in the same place that triggers off the urge to smoke. Reasoning with the conscious mind usually doesn`t work long term. Every-one knows the risks of smoking, so if common sense was all people needed to quit, there would never be a struggle to quit or the need for willpower.                                                                                                     The best way to change comfortably is to not only stop smoking but stop “being” a smoker by changing the way smoking is viewed.  In this way the normality of smoking is restored back to feeling unnatural. In fact it will be something that is not even a consideration and they may even wonder why they had put off quitting for so long and why they even started smoking in the first place.Image result for to quit smoking with hypnosisHypnotherapy is the natural route to successfully stop smoking. Hypnosis can really help smokers understand their reasons for smoking and the ability to appreciate the benefits of quitting. This offers a whole new perspective on smoking, by re-thinking all the situations that made it a compulsion, not  a choice,to light up. By identifying these, new habits can then be created. Habits that put the smoker back in the driving seat giving back freedom of choice.

 What are the first steps?   identify your personal reasons for smoking-  for instance is it to relax,to concentrate,to socialize or simply you enjoy a smoke? Also ask yourself what situations are linked to smoking; is it to end a meal, have with a drink, before bed. Possibly some other reasons and situations or a blend of these.                                                                                                                        With the help of a skilled hypnotherapist you can have a completely different perspective on smoking so those reasons along with the desire to smoke no longer exists.

Weight loss hypnosis

Weight loss hypnosis may not be the first thing that springs to mind when you need help losing weight. But you can enjoy effective weight loss with hypnotherapy.                                                                                Fast weight loss diets are not a healthy way to lose weight. If you want healthy weight loss, the best way to lose weight is slimming down gradually.                                                                                                    Quick weight loss leads to a slow metabolism and encourages food cravings and bingeing. The chances are that you will gradually pile back the pounds once again.

It is time to STOP being a serial yo-yo dieter!

Do you find weight loss diets a chore and you find that the weight creeps back on afterwards anyway? Hypnotherapy is for you.            Do you want to fit into whatever clothes you want;  knowing that they look will good on you ? Hypnotherapy is for you.                                

hypnosis for weight lossSo, does hypnosis work for weight loss and if so how to lose weight ? Well, you need to identify your unwanted eating habits and by using hypnosis for weight loss they will no longer continue to influence you.

                     Image result for question mark image                                                          Because you change to a healthier life style and start losing weight , as you know, this doesn`t mean that you won`t eventually return back to your old habits. This is because the part of your mind that maintained the habits will be in the background waiting for an opportunity to hurl you back into those old familiar routines.  yes, but WHY ?


When you keep doing something in the same way often enough, you will have created a habit. Let`s say, for instance, every time you have an afternoon cuppa, you have a biscuit with it, this forms a habit. Then, if you stop having that biscuit, it will feel strange and unfamiliar. So, by deciding you need to lose weight, this is only half the story…..so let`s provide you with the other half.

                                   The mind runs on two integral parts; conscious and subconscious. Consciously you decide that you need to lose weight and make the decision to start a healthy diet. However, the subconscious mind still runs the old programmes, in this example, the biscuit going with a cuppa. Whenever you decide to do something, the mind looks to the subconscious for agreement, as the subconscious is the boss.                 Habits are automatic actions; something you have always done and the subconscious mind holds the belief that it is what you should continue to do, without question. So, despite all that hard work to stick to your diet plans and lose weight, before you know it, “the boss” will persuade you to return back to your old ways, yet again.

Consequently it`s that part of you that won`t let go of all those unwanted eating habits  where the changes need to happen. Just taking the decision    ” I want to lose weight ”   is not enough.


Doing something different means that you need a whole new mindset, not just a small part of you…..but again- how ?

Your subconscious thoughts need to support your weight loss plan as they are still running the old eating habits.  Consequently as hypnosis is a direct line to those inner thoughts, with the skill of a hypnotherapist, you can actually  change those thoughts and end yo-yo dieting once and for all !

A Report on Hypnosis Myths and Facts

A report on hypnosis myths and facts. Because there are many misconceptions about hypnosis in clinical hypnotherapy we hope to dispel these this month.

Lesson 1Skeletons in The Closet

Under hypnosis, you will not reveal anything about yourself that you do not wish to. You will not say or do anything out of character. In fact you are more on your guard and alert to anything that may threaten your safety and wellbeing, as your mind will be fully focused.

Each session is explained briefly beforehand and you can run through any questions that you may have. The majority of sessions when under hypnosis, it not usually necessary to enquire on anything, unless it is to make an evaluation on what progress is being made towards the desired outcome.

What needs to remain private stays private.Added to this, sessions are always  confidential and you will never be judged. Hypnotherapy works, so why go it alone, when professional advice and help will get the results you want.


Lesson 2- Only for weak-willed stupid people

 The reverse is true. The best clients are those who are intelligent and have a vivid imagination. However, there is no such thing as good or bad hypnosis, because hypnosis works for every-one. So,you can still be helped if you are not particularly imaginative, although I find with a bit of encouragement, most people are more creative than what they think they are !

Think of your favourite room in the house,close your eyes and remember what`s in the room…. now describe something in it … see you can imagine, can`t you?                                                                                                                               Do you sometimes get anxious ? Well, that is using your imagination to create what might happen. When you employ the services of a professional hypnotherapist, you can then learn to create a better future. All this, while benefiting from the totally relaxing experience of hypnosis. 


 Lesson 3-  Look into my eyes

 If you do not want to be hypnotised, you won`t be. There are many theories that are quite unfounded. There is no bad hypnosis. There is no mind control. The reason people go to a clinical hypnotherapist is for help. Hypnosis works only with willing participants.                                                                                      You would never do anything that you wouldn`t do or say normally.  So you can talk and look at a hypnotherapist, but no-one can “do hypnosis” for you. A hypnotherapist guides you to hypnotize yourself.

Lesson 4- Getting stuck in hypnosis

People self-hypnotise throughout the day and naturally bring themselves back out of hypnosis. Watching a film, reading a book, driving on a familiar route, in fact anything that takes you into “automatic pilot ” is all self hypnosis. This frees up the conscious part of the brain to get on with day-to-day decisions.                                                                                                                  Clients often enjoy the total relaxation that hypnotherapy brings about, so may be reluctant to return to their full alert state. This is similar to being in a day-dream and you may feel you don`t want to come out of it, as it feels so euphoric. Once instructed to return to full alertness. the mind will oblige, as the subconscious is always attentive.

Additionally, in an emergency, the subconscious mind will within an instant, activate the survival instinct. It will take over and bring you instantly out of hypnosis as it puts you on high alert. This is the subconcious`s prime objective, to protect and serve. No logic, just action.

Lesson 5- You are feeling Sleepy.

BUT you will not fall asleep while in hypnosis, unless the session is particularly boring or you are tired!

Hypnotherapy gives people the opportunity to enjoy the wonderful feeling of tranquillity as attention is aimed towards letting go of tension within the body. The mind can then concentrate on a new perspective in order to gain an insight into making the changes required.

Under hypnosis people can be totally relaxed but definitely not asleep. The mind is fully focused on the steps needed to achieve those life changing results.You will be totally alert once the hypnotherapist has counted you back into the room.                                  Neither will you sleep at will, if commanded – that is tricks left to stage shows and tv. Stage hypnosis is different from clinical hypnosis on many levels. Stage hypnosis is there merely for entertainment and the people who participate are willing volunteers, as no-one would behave against their character as you will find the volunteers are extrovert characters and are happy to be up on stage for a laugh  ………..       for instance thinking they are James Brown or dancing erotically.

Here`s  a video that demonstrates that we are easily led to believe facts and become influenced by them. This is why advertisers spend thousands of pounds to tell us we need to purchase their particular brand.                                                                                           Hypnotherapists use hypnosis in a positive way and only have your best interests at heart.

Stoptober or not Stoptober that is the question?


The NHS is encouraging smokers to stop for October.

              Brilliant if you can stop for a month.But can you keep this going?

The smoking habit itself, like any habit  is under the control of your subconscious mind. This part runs on routines and thus hates change. The only way this part will change comfortably is to not only stop smoking but stop “being” a smoker.

Find out why you smoke- ask yourself is it to relax, to concentrate, to socialize, or simply you enjoy a smoke. Possibly some other reason or a blend of these. With the help of a skilled hypnotherapist you can have a completely different perspective on smoking so those reasons along with the desire to smoke no longer exist. There is no need to fear stopping and losing your identity. Think about this. You are never a smoker, just some-one who smokes cigarettes; it is the cigarettes that smoke. This means it is not part of you, but an external action. Hypnosis ends that fear and gives you confidence and pride to move towards a healthy outlook, for life.



Easter Eggs and chocolate cravings?

Spring is in the air and Easter approaches. All good, unless you are trying to  diet. If you find you binge on chocolate and find the urge is over whelming, fear not ! Provided there is a part of you that wants to change a behavior, hypnosis can help the other part to be in line with your wishes. So what may have seemed to be an addiction is nothing more than a distant thought.                                                                                                                                                                                                          We create our own habits and behaviors, we are not born craving chocolate, cigarettes, alcohol even. So does it not make sense we can just as easily re-create new habits that are more in line with the person you are today.Hypnotherapy relaxes and focuses the mind so you do not need willpower. Instead we work with you and not against, so you can implement change as a natural process.                                      Happy Easter from Ivertherapy !
