Smoking Cessation Success

Please help! I cannot seem to get anyone to quit smoking. I qualified in March and I've had a few clients in but I seem to be getting it all wrong?! It's possible that my assessments of clients are wrong.. but to be honest...I'm thoroughly disheartened.. I'm using suggestions and/or aversion and it seems a lot of other hypnotherapists find this easy to succeed in, but I can't! Driving me mad! Is this usual at the beginning of a hypnotherapists career??

Re: Smoking Cessation Success

My success rate is pretty good with smoking cessation. My average is 2 sessions. I do not guarantee, clients ask. I ask them to not smoke for 2 hours prior to session. As an ex-smoker, I find aversion doesn't work. I knew that it is causing all kinds of health problems. Did it help me quit? No. I use positive suggestions. Anything from feeling healthier to feeling extremely proud. Hope this helped a bit.

Re: Smoking Cessation Success

Are you taking a comprehensive pre consultation assessment? This can also show reasons as to why people are afraid to quit, what has held them back before, why they smoke, why they want to quit etc.., and also IF they really, really want to quit. Hypnosis is not a magical wand, unless the client is ready. Sometimes helpful suggestions will work like for e.g. when you feel like smoking, take in three deep breaths. You can add to the script.

Re: Smoking Cessation Success

Hi Julie I am a Psychotherapist and usually when a client comes to my office I always get a full history starting with childhood. You want to know who smoked in the family if anyone, who had addictions, anxiety, and if there are any traumas. A lot of my patients have had traumas, they became anxious and started smoking. Unless you ask, the client is not going to disclose any traumas. Actually you can ask for any disturbing memories that the client may have that makes him nervous and then the desire to smoke, Ask questions as to when the client smokes and what time of the day so you can figure out if is due to boredom as well. If you need any more help, please free to call me at 786-486-2033. I am very successful doing hypnosis and you can be just as successful as me or better. Good luck. The hypnosis script that I use most of the times the works the first time is "Smoking Aversion Script" I personalize it to each client.
