Frequently Asked Questions

My clinic offers hypnotherapy for smoking in Chester, Liverpool and Colwyn Bay, serving all of Cheshire, Merseyside and North Wales. There are a lot of misconceptions regarding the efficacy of hypnotherapy so, hopefully, these frequently asked questions will help to dispel some of those.


How does Hypnosis Work?

Our minds work on two levels – the conscious and unconscious. We make decisions, think and act with our conscious mind. The unconscious mind controls our habits. In the relaxed state, known as hypnosis, we can communicate directly with the unconscious mind. This is why it is so quick and easy to change habits of a lifetime with hypnosis.

Will Hypnosis Work with Me?

Generally speaking, every normal person is hypnotizable. That is, people with an IQ of at least 70 and no severe mental disorders. Therefore, virtually anyone can achieve successful results using hypnosis.



How Will I Know if I am Hypnotized?

Most people cannot tell the difference between the hypnotized and the waking states. Some people feel relaxed and lethargic, while others feel a lightness. One thing that people do notice is an explicable change in their daily behaviours.

Is Hypnosis Safe?

Hypnosis is completely safe. You are aware and in control at every moment and can terminate the session at any time. Hypnosis is not sleep, nor can you get “stuck” in a state of hypnosis. You cannot be made to do something against your will! Hypnosis is a safe, relaxing and enjoyable experience.

How does Hypnosis Help Me to Kick the Smoking Habit?

Because smoking is a habit, it is controlled by the unconscious mind. Since hypnosis and NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) work directly with the unconscious mind, this is the only method that makes sense! I can help your effortless transition into the healthy lifestyle of a happy non-smoker - it can take only up to 2 hours to quit!
