A SHORT CASE HISTORY
From our Llandudno hypnotherapy branch
Marjorie had resisted stopping smoking all her life, and she was in her late seventies when she called us about hypnotherapy. She had never tried to stop in all those years, so why was she speaking with us now? We were not surprised to hear it was for urgent medical reasons. Marjorie had lung cancer. All those years she had refused to believe what everyone knows about smoking, and now it was too late.
Our Llandudno hypnotist heard a note of defiance in her voice. It was as if she was saying this was nothing to do with a lifetime of smoking. Marjorie was living in some alternative reality. This though begged the question: if she didn’t believe it was smoking that had caused her cancer, why was she even considering hypnotherapy to stop? The answer, of course, was that on one level she knew. Perhaps she was pretending so she didn’t to avoid having to take responsibility for being wrong.
Clearly, though, our Llandudno hypnotherapist was going to have a job on her hands. Most hypnotists will only accept clients who are ready to stop smoking. The client has almost to prove their motivation. We don’t agree with this stance. If we turned away everyone who wasn’t sure they wanted to stop smoking, we wouldn’t need any hypnotherapists. No-one is sure. If they were they wouldn’t need us, because they would stop on their own. Contrary to popular belief, it is possible! Our Llandudno hypnotist doesn’t make stopping possible, she makes it easy.
Marjorie wasn’t an easy case. In fact she was quite resistant, and our hypnotist considered sending her home, but her professional pride wouldn’t let her give up on a client. It took two sessions of hypnotherapy to get Marjorie stopped, but she did get there. And then something surprising happened. She phoned our AfterCare service and said she had a regret. No-one ever regrets stopping smoking, but was Marjorie a first? No. It wasn’t stopping she regretted. She regretted she had fought it for so long. If she had known our Llandudno hypnotist was going to make it that easy, she told us, she would have done it years ago. Which proves one point. She had been lying to herself all along.
NO, YOU DON'T HAVE TO STOP SMOKING
We help people to stop smoking, but we also help heavy smokers to become light smokers – IF THAT IS WHAT THEY WANT. We have a book on this subject, and there are lots of pages you can read for free. You might be interested to do this before you come to our Llandudno hypnosis branch. Here is a taster.
….. ‘You have to stop smoking’ is one of the biggest myths smokers are sold, and it is also one of the most destructive. It is counter-intuitive, for two reasons. First, because by definition smokers don’t want to stop (about which you will, I promise you, be reading a great deal shortly, and if you don’t believe it prepare to be disproved) And second because, because smokers don’t want to stop, and they are ONLY ever told they must, they completely miss the whole point, which is that:
Smoking is bad for you.
Now think about this – eating is bad for you. Er, no, eating is not bad, it’s good (because if you don’t eat you die). Eating TOO MUCH is bad for you. But hold on, do we have campaigns to get people to stop eating because eating too much is bad? No, I don’t think so.
OK, OK, I know already what certain people in the healthcare profession are going to say. They’re going to say, no, this is not a valid comparison. Smoking AT ALL is bad for you. You can’t compare it with eating. No? Who says?
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 Llandudno 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.
