OUR GUARANTEED AFTERCARE SERVICE

When you have seen our Chichester 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.

Chichester Hypnotherapy AfterCare

Even with the best hypnotherapy issues can come up as you go into the real world. We provide telephone counselling support for three years. So don’t hesitate to call if anything goes amiss. And if you need more help from our Chichester hypnotist, we’ll have you back for another session.

Chichester 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 Chichester acupuncturist has feedback to prepare for your second treatment.

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 coming to our Chichester hypnosis or acupuncture service.

….. As you now know, thinking you can’t stop smoking is part of the fear of stopping, and the belief that you can’t is really just an excuse so you don’t have to try, but excuse me and I know I promised I wouldn’t lecture you but as you know from time to time I have to include a sanity check and we are, let’s face it, talking about coming off an addictive drug that is threatening to kill you so let’s get serious.

And anyway, a lot of people have tried to stop smoking and have failed. They interpret that, sadly, as meaning they can’t stop, but that’s not true at all. I failed my first three driving tests but did it mean I couldn’t drive? Well, OK, at the time, yes, but since then I passed and have been driving for, well, a long time. Alright, I am the first to admit I’m not a good driver (now did you ever hear a man admit that?) but it doesn’t alter the fact that I passed the test.

The relevance if this? Any driving instructor will tell you that failing a test is, for many people, an important part of learning to drive. And failing to stop smoking can and should be an important part of learning to stop. Sadly, what most smokers do, as I said, is use failure to confirm that they are no good at not smoking (yes, when you put it like that it sounds silly) instead of learning from their mistakes. Learner drivers get better the more they try, smokers get worse. Strange.

A SHORT CASE HISTORY

From our Chichester hypnotherapy branch

We often get couples wanting to stop smoking at the same time, although more often one partner books up and the other puts it off. So is it a good idea to come together, or should one partner stop first?

Amy rang about coming to our Chichester hypnosis branch with her partner, Jonathan. One of the first questions we ask when one partner calls is about the other’s motivation. Are they making the enquiry on this understanding? Or are they just letting their partner make the arrangements without really being serious? We have to speak with every potential client in any case, so our Chichester hypnotist spoke first with Amy and then Jonathan. He gave all the right answers to her questions and she duly booked them both in.

We do try to vet potential clients before accepting them. This is mostly for their benefit, because we don’t want them coming for the wrong therapy. We get it right most of the time, but not always. In Jonathan’s case, he turned out to be there for the wrong reasons. Perhaps he had meant what he said on the phone, perhaps Amy had been listening so he just said whet he thought she wanted to hear. In any case, without going into a lot of details, he left our Chichester hypnosis branch and we didn’t hear from him again. Amy did really well, but she told us Jonathan wasn’t even trying. We asked her to get him to call our AfterCare service, which was all we could do, but he never got in touch. We can help most clients, but we can’t help those who won’t talk to us. How can we?

The danger in this kind of situation is that the partner who takes the hypnotherapy seriously can get dragged down but the one who doesn’t. We worried about Amy, but it turned out she was made of sterner stuff. She recognised that Jonathan had wasted his money and our time, but she was determined not to let his attitude damage her success. Whether they are still together, we can’t know, but a few months later she called our hypnotist in Chichester to say thank you, which was very decent of her.

There’s one thing to add to this story, though. Is someone who doesn’t take stopping seriously a hopeless case? Perhaps, but probably not. Jonathan may very well have gone on to succeed at a later date. The effect of hypnotherapy can be long lasting, and sometimes a client will suddenly stop months later. They think they had failed, but in fact they just took time. We can’t know, of course, if this was what happened with Jonathan, but we like to think so.

OTHER STOP SMOKING SERVICES IN CHICHESTER

Hypnotherapy or acupuncture 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 Sussex Community website here.
