Most clients stop in just one session, although a free follow-up is available within three months in the event that you have a problem. Our Belfast hypnotherapist has bookings from Monday to Saturday, and you can also be seen in the evening.
This is a course of three treatments, and the fee also includes our three-years AfterCare service. If you don’t need all three treatments, you don’t have to have them.
We hope to bring AM to Belfast by the end of 2017.

THE NSCI STOP SMOKING HANDBOOK
Here is a small taster from the book. If you are going to come to our Belfast hypnotherapist or acupuncturist, have a read of the sample pages first.
….. The problem wasn’t that Michael actually believed smoking was relieving his stress. After all, he was just as stressed with it as without it, and he knew that. The problem was that his brain was hardwired to smoke when he was stressed, not listen to logic. His brain was simply incapable of rational thought when he got stressed. Appealing to his intelligence was pointless, because smokers hand their intelligence over to the tobacco companies when they sign up.
On the intellectual level Michael knew what was going on, but on the emotional level he was putty in their hands. He had no power to resist them. He could have a cigarette in his hand while he was saying this isn’t helping, but carry on smoking it. He would know, while he was doing it, that it made no sense, but he couldn’t stop doing it. If you have any doubts at all about the awesome power of tobacco, this is what it’s capable of. Tobacco can make you say black is white and white is black, know you’re wrong, despise yourself for saying it, but say it all the same.
Michael was desperate. We were not a little otherwise ourselves. Our work is largely predicated on logical argument – tell the patient the facts and he will use them to save his life. You might have noticed that, reading this Handbook.
A SHORT CASE HISTORY
From our Belfast hypnotherapy branch
Janice was quite certain that she was not addicted to nicotine. Then she added that even if she was it wasn’t the reason she couldn’t stop smoking. She wanted to see our Belfast hypnotist because it was, in her words, ‘all in the mind’.
Is smoking all in the mind? And if it isn’t why do we provide hypnotherapy? To answer the first question first, no, of course it isn’t. Every smoker knows that nicotine is an addictive drug. So now to the second question. Why, if all smokers are addicted, don’t we just provide treatment for the addiction? Why do we provide a therapy that actually ignores it? Well, hypnotherapy only appears to ignore it. What it is actually doing is using the power of your subconscious mind to overcome the addiction. What our Belfast hypnotherapist will NOT be doing is ignoring the root cause of your problem, which is your physical need for nicotine. What he WILL be doing is tackling the psychological dependence that was created by the addiction.
You are addicted, and when you stop smoking you will have to withdraw from nicotine. The key here is what you brain does about that. If you stop on your own, your brain is very likely to respond by making you smoke. You know this because you’ve been there before. What happened in Janice’s case, when she saw our Belfast hypnotist, was that he gave her control over how her brain responded to the need for nicotine. He didn’t eliminate the withdrawal, which can’t be done, he enabled her to ignore it. Without the symptoms, it was then easy for Janice to stop smoking, because there was no reason to smoke.
This is how hypnotherapists treat addiction. Not by denying the facts, but by changing them.
And it’s worth adding here that there is another way to achieve the same result. Our Belfast acupuncturist will do this in exactly the opposite way. By controlling the withdrawal symptoms physically, she will give you control over your perceived need to smoke. So the two therapies achieve the same end, but they do it in opposite ways. Is one better than the other? No. If you’re not sure which way to do this, just call us, on 01200 40 50 22, and we’ll help you to decide. If you decide on hypnotherapy, we have hypnotists in Belfast and Newtownabbey as well.
