A SHORT CASE HISTORY
From our Dartford hypnotherapy branch
Gillian had a lot of misconceptions about hypnosis. The very word had led to much of these. We always use the term hypnotherapy, which means therapy that uses a hypnotic state to achieve the desired result. This is obviously completely unconnected with stage hypnosis, which uses a similar technique to entertain.
When Gillian called us about seeing our Dartford hypnotherapist we realised she was quite unclear about the terminology. This confusion was causing her to doubt whether we had therapy that would help her to stop smoking. She wanted us to, but she just didn’t know enough about it. In this situation, we always suggest the smoker reads about hypnosis on our website, and that was what we advised Gillian to do. She actually did very well after just one session with our Dartford hypnotherapist. We like to think this was because our hypnotist is good, but also because Gillian knew what to expect, and had prepared for it.
Every hypnotherapist calls themselves just that – a hypnotherapist. They don’t use the word hypnotist, because that sounds like what the entertainers do, even though it is actually a valid word. Hypnosis is also a valid word, but even so hypnotherapy is preferred, because that is more precise. Gillian said she had called an independent Dartford hypnotist before contacting us, and they called themselves a clinical hypnotherapist. She asked us what is special about that. Clinical is just a word some therapists use to sound more professional. There’s nothing wrong with it, but we consider it’s over-egging things. Hypnotherapy is not clinical because it’s not medical and neither is it done in a clinic.
When Gillian first got in touch with us, she was rather vague about the terminology, and so she was vague about the therapy. Clearing all this up before she saw our Dartford hypnotist was, we felt, an important part of her smoking cessation success.
THE NSCI STOP SMOKING HANDBOOK
Here’s a snippet from the book. There are lots of pages you can read for free. We suggest you do this before you come to our Dartford hypnosis branch.
You did Allen Carr’s Easyway session: How it works
The late Allen Carr ran a personal (and business) crusade to convince people they don’t need to smoke. He wrote many books (none of them, of course, as good as this one) and started a national chain of franchises to preach the message.
The session lasts four hours, with a largish group usually, in which the leader talks you through the philosophy in the books.
Did you stop at the time, for at least a week? If not did you go back and fail again? Or did you go back and succeed?
We see quite a lot of people who did this session, and most of them say it was good. Some liked it but didn’t stop, some actually stopped for a while and started again. Why is this?
The programme is based on brainwashing. It’s quite good at moving the client towards stopping, but seems to offer less in terms of the longer-term issues. And because it’s brain-washing, if you start smoking again and go back and do it again, people tell us it often doesn’t help the second time. I don’t know if the company have figured out why, but we assume it’s simply because the brain computes it is being washed and rejects the message. It’s like a magic trick; once you’ve seen how it’s done, it’s no longer magic.
If you liked the session, consider hypnotherapy this time. If you didn’t get on with it at all, ask yourself why, and then decide.
OTHER DARTFORD STOP SMOKING RESOURCES
Some people should try drug products for smoking cessation first. If you prefer them to hypnotherapy, we suggest you see your doctor. You can also visit the NHS Kent Community Health website here.
