A while ago, I was referred a client who was extremely motivated to quit smoking. He lived in a remote Australian town in N.T and could not visit me and we had to have the sessions virtually and that was ok because modern hypnosis does not need face to face engagement.
He had been smoking for over 25 years and off late he was smoking about 2 packets of cigarettes a day. Not only was he draining money, but also his health and relationships were all going for a toss.
We had our first hypnosis session and he called me very anxious the next evening. He had magically started disliking smoking after the hypnosis session. The cigarette tasted bitter, and he could not put it into his mouth anymore. However, he had started craving for something else and he had started eating voraciously and also started drinking several cups of coffee through the day to replace the smoking habit. Over the next few weeks, we continued to work on finding the right motivations to replace his smoking habit.
Battling the smoke that clouds one’s life, embracing the fight against the tendrils of tobacco that seek to entwine one’s will—this is the daunting quest many embark upon when deciding to quit smoking. Hypnosis coupled with strategic psychotherapy offers a beacon of light through the fog of addiction, creating paths of hope and clarity in a landscape often dominated by shadows and despair.
The Science Behind the Smoke:
Smoking, it’s a labyrinth of physical and psychological dependencies, where nicotine plays the puppeteer, manipulating the strings of our neurotransmitters, invoking the illusion of pleasure and relief. It creates an oasis in the mind, associating tranquility and bliss with every puff, overshadowing the lurking dangers and numerous health warnings that accompany this toxic relationship.
Strategic Psychotherapy: Unraveling the Knots:
Strategic psychotherapy serves as a meticulous gardener of the mind, pruning the entangled weeds of destructive habits and fostering the growth of healthier responses. This therapy aids individuals in detecting the hidden triggers shrouded in their daily lives, providing the lantern to illuminate the obscured paths leading to healthier coping mechanisms.

Hypnosis: Whispering to the Subconscious:
Hypnosis dives into the silent oceans of the subconscious, echoing the messages of positive change, and reinforcing the newly paved paths discovered by strategic psychotherapy. It’s the gentle breeze that whispers promise of freedom and strength, easing the journey towards a life unclouded by smoke.
Guardians of the Newfound Freedom:
Breaking free from the chains of smoke is like emerging from shadows into the sunlight. It is enlightening but demands vigilance and nurturing to ward off the remnants of the old, lurking shadows.
Staying Vigilant: Being the watchful guardian of one's mind, ready to fend off the whispering shadows of old habits, is crucial.
Developing Healthy Habits: Crafting a fortress of well-being through balanced living acts as the bulwark against the waves of relapse.
