SOME NOTES ABOUT OUR EASTBOURNE ACUPUNCTURIST, AND PATIENT COMMENTS
OUR GUARANTEED AFTERCARE SERVICE
When you have seen our Eastbourne hypnotherapist or acupuncturist we will enrol you in our NSSC AfterCare programme. The support that comes with each therapy is different, although in each case it provides access to our unlimited help by telephone counselling.
Eastbourne Hypnotherapy AfterCare
This gives a follow-up session with our Eastbourne hypnotist if you need one, and three years of support. We strongly advise you to call the helpdesk the day after your session. We shall talk through how the session went, and how you feel after the first twenty four hours. And we are here to help, so do call if need help.
Eastbourne Acupuncture AfterCare
You will be getting three years of counselling and support with acupuncture. In addition to the long-term support, we like to talk with you after the first treatment. This is to assess your progress and ensure that our Eastbourne acupuncturist has feedback to prepare for your second treatment.

THE NSCI STOP SMOKING HANDBOOK
Here is a taster from the book. If you are going to come to our acupuncturist or hypnotherapist in Eastbourne, read the sample pages first.
Assess why you can’t stop.
If you have learned anything thus far from this Handbook, I hope it is that you have failed to stop smoking because you have been doing it wrong. Failure to achieve something is usually because you do it wrong, so why should stopping smoking be any different?
You have almost certainly also started to understand your past mistakes, and hopefully you have made a commitment not to make them again. But let’s go further, let’s analyse what you did and why it didn’t work. We go through this kind of procedure in our clinical programme, Phoenix (because it’s a long consultation and we have time to do it, and anyway it’s a fundamental of medical practice, for us at least, that we can’t help a patient until we understand them). You can’t decide what to do in future until you know what was wrong with the past, can you?
This project is also rather similar to the workshops we run for corporate clients. I have a great time standing in front of a group of smokers writing all this stuff on a whiteboard and watching their little faces as the lights start to come on in their heads. There are two parts to it. The first is going to help you to understand your individual problems with stopping smoking and in the second you will see why the attempts you made failed, because they failed to address the reasons you can’t stop.
A SHORT CASE HISTORY
From our Eastbourne hypnotherapy branch
Claire tried to stop smoking every year, in fact three times every year. She was, in her own words, a sucker for a publicity campaign. So every New Year she had a go, then on National No-Smoking Day in March, and again in October with all the publicity for ‘Stoptober’.
And every attempt revolved around nicotine replacement products (NRPs), either prescribed by her GP or bought over the counter. It didn’t matter either to the doctor or the chemist that she came back time and again for the same products. For both of them, she was trying, and that was all that mattered.
But it was not all the mattered. Our Eastbourne hypnotherapist regularly sees clients who do this – trying and failing with pharmaceutical products repeatedly. Trying and failing is bad for two reasons. First, because failure is bad by definition, and second because every time Claire failed she lost a bit more hope. More importantly, she lost belief in herself. What the NRPs were doing in fact was destroying her belief that she would ever stop smoking. She was going through the motions, but that was all. For the NHS she was ticking a box marked trying, but that box is not what it seems. Trying and failing actually does more harm than good. By the time Claire arrived at our Eastbourne hypnosis branch, she didn’t really believe the hypnotherapy was going to work and more than the NRPs had. This, of course, is nonsense, because there is no connection.
What actually happened was that Claire was so conditioned to failing that she did. Well, not exactly. She did stop smoking after just one session, but a week later she went out drinking with friends and fell into the trap of smoking ‘just one’. Of course just one led to just one more, and you know the rest of the story. And a couple of days later she call our AfterCare service to say she had failed. She hadn’t failed at all. What she had done was succeed, and then slip up. But because of her history failure was how she saw it. That was the damage the NHS had done to her. Anyway, she did at least recognise that there was hope, and she asked us to arrange another session of hypnosis in Eastbourne, which we did.
However, before she came back she had to accept there was some work she needed to do. She hadn’t watched the videos on our website before her first session, so we instructed her to do that now, before her second appointment. And we asked her to keep a smoking diary, which we went through with her on the phone. This greatly helped her to understand why she was smoking. Now, she wasn’t depending on us to do it for her. Now, she, and the helpdesk team, and our hypnotherapist, were working as a team. This was a new experience for her, because it’s not the NHS smoking cessation model.
After her second session of hypnotherapy in Eastbourne, she stopped smoking and didn’t start again, even when tempted. She had learned some valuable and important lessons, one of which was to take responsibility.
OTHER EASTBOURNE STOP SMOKING RESOURCES
Some people want to take drug products to stop smoking. If you prefer that to hypnotherapy or acupuncture, we suggest you see your GP.. You can also visit the Healthy Eastbourne website here.
