HYPNOTHERAPY and ACUPUNCTURE
Everything you want to know about our Cardiff hypnosis 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 Cardiff hypnotherapist has bookings from Monday to Saturday, and you can also be seen in the evening.
Most patients stop completely in 2-3 treatments, so we provide three to be sure. The fee is inclusive of these and our AfterCare service.

A SHORT CASE HISTORY
From our Cardiff hypnotherapy branch
Very few people, when they want to stop smoking, think of hypnotherapy or acupuncture first. This means that by the time they get to us they have been on usually more than one NRP. Not a few have also been on Champix. Most people wanting to stop smoking will ask their GP for help first. Does this give us a problem? Well, the only problem it gives us is that by the time they come to us they have lost confidence in being able to stop
Jon was one such smoker. He had tried ‘absolutely every’ smoking cessation method before coming to our Cardiff hypnotherapy branch. Actually, he had tried every drug product, which is not the same thing at all. He hadn’t had any therapy, and was unaware that therapy always works better than drugs.
Jon had of course heard about hypnotherapy for stopping smoking. But he had always thought of it as a last resort. Why? Probably simply because it was going to have to be paid for privately. Who wouldn’t try free products from the NHS before paying for therapy? That’s fair enough. So here he was, doing what he considered the last resort therapy. He wanted to book up with our Cardiff hypnotist as soon as possible, which probably meant before he changed his mind!
However, when he made his booking he said something that normally sets off alarm bells for us. He said he would ‘give hypnosis a go’. This is not the attitude we are looking for. We explained gently to Jon that he should re-think his approach to therapy, and he took the point. Our Cardiff hypnotist was able to give him an appointment just three days later, and the story should have ended there, but it didn’t.
It’s rare that we have a problem with a client in an actual session, but Jon turned up at the arranged time to see our Cardiff hypnotherapist and it appeared his change of attitude hadn’t lasted long. She reported afterwards that he was almost challenging her to stop him smoking. Obviously this is a very unhealthy approach, and her first instinct was simply to cancel the session. It wasn’t as simple as that, though, because Jon insisted that he was serious about stopping smoking, and even apologised for his rudeness. In that situation the hypnotist had little choice but to continue.
Our therapists are professionals, and she pulled herself together and gave Jon her best attention. Another Cardiff hypnotherapist might have given up, but she is very experienced and took it all in her stride. Strangely, Jon was really very grateful at the end of the session, and in fact he did very well. This was the point. What he needed was not hypnotherapy to stop smoking but to help him believe that he could stop. Everyone can stop smoking; Jon just needed to be reminded that there was nothing special about him.
NO, YOU DON'T HAVE TO STOP SMOKING
We help people to stop smoking, but we can also help heavy smokers to become light smokers – IF THAT IS WHAT THEY WANT. We have a book on this, and there are lots of pages you can read for free. You might be interested to do this before you come to our Cardiff hypnosis or acupuncture branch. Here is a taster.
….. And they are all important when it comes to cutting down, although for different reasons. Addiction, for example, is the big one when you’re stopping smoking, but it doesn’t matter at all when you only cut down, and I’m going to explain this in the next chapter. Why would I bother to explain something that doesn’t matter? Well, I said addiction doesn’t matter, but it matters that you understand why it doesn’t matter, if you see what I mean, because I don’t want you fretting about the wrong things. Actually, I don’t want you fretting about anything, because to be honest there’s nothing difficult in this whole book. But I certainly don’t want you worrying about a problem that doesn’t exist, and once you’ve read this part you are going to know which bits you have to think about and which bits you don’t, and if nothing else not thinking about the unimportant bits is going to save you some time.
TALK WITH OUR HYPNOTIST FIRST
When you enquire about hypnotherapy we will discuss whether it’s what you need. If it is, we will have our Cardiff hypnotist phone you, because you will still want to see if you like them. Hypnotherapy is great, which is why we provide it, but your success will also depend on your relationship with the hypnotherapist you see.
