HYPNOTHERAPY and ACUPUNCTURE
Everything you want to know about our Chichester and acupuncture services
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 Chichester hypnotherapist has bookings from Monday to Saturday, and you can also be seen in the evening.
Most patients stop smoking after two or three treatments. In any case, our fee covers three, plus our AfterCare support.

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
Amy rang about coming to our Chichester hypnotherapy 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 speak with every potential client, so our Chichester hypnotist spoke first with Amy and then Jonathan. He gave all the right answers to her questions and she 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. 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 he just said whet he thought Amy wanted to hear. In any case, he left our Chichester hypnotherapy 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 didn’t.
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 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 Chichester hypnotist to say thank you, which was great.
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 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.
