HEMEL HEMPSTEAD HYPNOTHERAPY
Most clients stop in a single session, but a free follow-up is provided within three months in the event that you have a problem. Our Hemel Hempstead hypnotherapist has bookings from Monday to Saturday, and you can also be seen in the evening.
HEMEL HEMPSTEAD ACUPUNCTURE
Included in this fee you will receive three separate treatments, although some patients stop smoking in two. We like to do these a few days or a week apart.
We hope to bring AM to Hertfordshire by the end of 2017.

Hemel Hempstead Hypnotherapy AfterCare
This gives three years of support. We strongly advise you to call the helpdesk the day after your session. We will talk through how the session went, how you feel right now, and what else we can do to help you. A second session with our Hemel Hempstead hypnotist is free, within three months.

THE NSCI STOP SMOKING HANDBOOK
Before seeing our Hemel Hempstead hypnotherapist or acupuncturist, read some sample pages on our website.
Here is a very small taster:
Stop blaming yourself
It’s an interesting factor in smokers’ motivation, or lack of it, that they blame themselves for the problem. This has the paradoxical effect of making them think well it’s my own fault, I can’t blame anyone else, so that’s that. I’m not sure why people’s belief that it’s their own fault equates to being unable to stop smoking, but it does.
First of all it’s not your fault that you smoke. Smoking is not, contrary to the popular myth, self-inflicted. If you started when you were a child, like most smokers, you were under the age of responsibility and you can blame the adult world for not protecting you from the drug. Once you tried it, you came under its control, so you can blame the authorities who allowed its sale. Once you were addicted, you became psychologically dependent. Alright, perhaps you should have been stronger, but you were what you were and in normal times that hasn’t been a problem, has it? There is, then, a very strong case for not accepting the blame for your smoking.
But in any case, even if it WERE your fault there is a serious error in believing that means that you will only stop smoking when you can get your head round it which isn’t now because you’re not ready, or whatever other reason you give, but as sure as eggs is eggs you can at least convince yourself that because it’s all your fault you have to accept your hopelessness.
So two attitude changes are needed here. First, start blaming other people for the mess you’re in and second, stop allowing yourself to feel a hopeless weakling.
A SHORT CASE HISTORY
From our Hemel Hempstead hypnotherapy branch
Given the number of clients we see each year, with more than three hundred branches across the country, it is unsurprising that we see some strange cases. Amanda explained to us why she had always had such a hard time stopping smoking. As a teenager, she had associated smoking with rebelling. When she got married, she stopped smoking, and things went well for a while, but her marriage gradually deteriorated. At some point (she couldn’t remember when), she began to smoke again. The only explanation she could give was that she did this to spite her husband, who didn’t like her smoking.
By the time she came to our Hemel Hempstead hypnotherapy service, smoking had become the way she asserted her independence. She was no longer married, but she was still smoking. After a few years of being on her own, she had begun to realise that she didn’t need to prove anything by smoking. There was no-one to prove it to. In fact, paradoxically, she had now met another man, and he hated her smoking. She wanted to stop, for him if not just for herself, but by now she had all the same problems everyone has with trying to stop smoking.
What came out in the session, though, with our hypnotist in Hemel, was that there was some residual belief that smoking was somehow cocking a snook at the world in general. Everyone told her she shouldn’t smoke, so somewhere in her subconscious mind she saw smoking, still, as rebellion. A part of her knew that at her age it was far too late to be rebelling, and now here was her new man, but she was stuck in this contradiction. Well, all smokers have a contradiction. No-one actually believes that what they are doing makes any sense, and yet they can’t imagine not doing it.
In her more rational moments, Amanda understood all of this, although it helped her greatly that we put it into words for her. But because we were a third party, if you like, making the point, she attended her appointment with our Hemel Hempstead hypnotist, with less conflict. Not only understanding the issue, but accepting the truth of it, was instrumental in her success at stopping smoking. There were other issues, there always are, but having said that it’s surprising how often a single issue, one you didn’t think of, can make or break the process.
Amanda did very well, and she found that once she had stopped smoking she understood how foolish it had been putting it off all this time. That’s very common. Smokers tend to live in an alternative world, where nothing really makes sense. They have to rationalise smoking in a way that is nonsensical. Interestingly, Amanda got on so well with our hypnotherapist in Hemel that she arranged to see her again for some other issues in her life that she was now starting to understand.
