A SHORT CASE HISTORY

From our Tavistock hypnotherapy branch

One of the biggest issues we have to address in hypnotherapy is the smoker’s lack of belief in themselves. It shows as a lack of belief in stopping smoking, and to some extent it has to be blamed on all the useless methods they have tried before. But the effect of failure is to make them think there is something wrong with them. This problem applies particularly, but not only, to women. It’s not our speciality, but we do see a lot of women with low self-esteem.

Jennifer (not her real name) was one of them. Fortunately we have a female hypnotherapist in Tavistock. We say fortunately, because Jennifer needed a woman hypnotist, to avoid some of the issues that had contributed to her low self esteem in the first place. When we launched our service, we planned to offer either a male or female hypnotherapist in each location. This was because we believed some women would prefer to see another woman. It turned out not to be the case, or at least not at all often. As a large national service provider, we have the scope to make this kind of arrangement. We still do it, but as we say, very few women express a preference.

So coming back to Jennifer, she didn’t actually ask for a woman hypnotist, but she did sound relieved when we said we could offer one. At the session, our Tavistock hypnotist soon figured out that Jennifer’s marriage was a large part of the problem. This is a tricky area for us. Stopping smoking is not only about stopping smoking. On the other hand, it’s why the client is with us, and they don’t expect or want to go deeply into their life problems. The knack is to show the client that whatever is going on in their life is not a reason to smoke. Tobacco never resolved anyone’s problems. A lot of smokers depend on cigarettes just like any other drug, not just, ostensibly, to get a fix of nicotine. Any Tavistock hypnotherapist with a lot of experience will tell you that.

Jennifer did very well with hypnosis. In truth, our hypnotherapist did help her with a number of other issues, all of which contributed to her success. Having helped many thousands of people to stop smoking over the years, we have found clients are often unaware of the complexities of smoking cessation. Of course, they don’t need to know a lot, but we do sometimes wish we could get more involved, teach clients how smoking has impacted on their lives in ways that perhaps they don’t understand. Most of our Tavistock hypnosis clients, though, just want a simple solution. And who can blame them?

THE NSCI STOP SMOKING HANDBOOK

Here’s a snippet from the book. There are lots of pages you can read for free. Do this before you come to our Tavistock hypnosis or acupuncture branch.

….. What you are doing in this important exercise is not smoking when you don’t need to, but more importantly deciding when you smoke, changing the times round at will, using tobacco, not being used by it, deciding when to smoke, not being told when to. It might take a week to get to this stage, it might take longer, but however long it takes you should, once you are happy that you’ve got the hang of it, carry on doing it for another week. I don’t want you to get blasé about it. I want you to feel so in control you can do anything, anything at all, because you call the shots.

What I do not want you to do is clockwatch, waiting until you can light the next one. That is not the point at all. The point is to use your new understanding of why you smoke each cigarette, the knowledge you have gained about yourself in previous projects, to smoke, now, only those cigarettes for which you have an addictive craving, which by now you should be able to recognise.

Going through this process, learning to smoke only the ones you need because of a definable craving and not for any other reason, is the biggest thing you will ever do towards becoming a non-smoker. I would go so far as to say that even if on this occasion you don’t actually stop smoking you will have changed the smoker you are, for ever.

You will have made a change so profound that at any time in the future you will be able to click your fingers and say pfui, or some such thing, and stop. You will not be afraid to stop smoking because smoking will have lost its control over you.

Therapy might not be what you’re looking for. If it isn’t, and you want to take pharmaceutical products to stop smoking, we suggest you see your GP.. You can also visit the NHS Smokefree website here.
