April 13, 2016

Last Friday I hosted a Lifestyle and Wellness Event in Carmenta Life in Berkhamsted. I work as a Cognitive Hypnotherapist in Berkhamsted and I have the use of a lovely room in Carmenta Life on Tuesdays, so I felt it was appropriate that I hold it there.

Stoptober 28 Day Challenge To Stop And Quit Smoking

September 24, 2014

Research has shown that if you stop smoking for 28 days you are 5 x more likely to stop forever.

Stoptober 28 Day Challenge To Stop And Quit SmokingPublic Health England encourages smokers to stop smoking from the 1st October every year with this Stoptober 28 day challenge.  Paddy McGuinness, Al Murray and other TV personalities such as Phil Tufnell, Craig Revel Horwood and Natasha Hamilton back this worthwhile campaign, swapping fags for gags.

To help you break the habit and the addiction, they are providing a range of free supportive tools which include an app for your phone, tips for quitting and a new stop smoking pack.  To join the biggest stop smoking campaign in the UK you can sign up here.

So if you want to give up smoking, why not use Stoptober as an incentive to start?  You’ll gain better health, more money and social benefits quicker than you may imagine.

Cognitive Hypnotherapy has been shown to be a very effective way to help you stop smoking.  The reason I became involved in hypnotherapy was because one of my friends gave up after after one session.  I was really impressed. Alongside my hypnotherapy training, I also trained with The Simmons Method which is a science based approach to stop smoking, which covers all aspects of breaking this habit and addiction.

If you want to know how hypnotherapy can help you to stop smoking, please give me a call with any questions you may have on 07761 586529.  No obligation to book an appointment.
