Hypnotherapy Concepts

Quit smoking and have the healthy lifestyle with quitting smoking

Enjoy a healthy lifestyle and be a non smoker

Chances are you have heard of hypnosis, but you may not believe in it. Many people are sceptical when it comes to anything that has to do with trances or altered-states of mind that are not induced by drugs. However, hypnosis is a very real phenomenon that can have many therapeutic benefits. In order to better understand how hypnosis can help people, it is important to first understand how it works, so let’s discuss the concept of hypnosis in a little more depth.

What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is an imaginative mental state of mind and it is typically characterized by heightened focus, concentration and inner absorption. Hypnosis is induced by hypnotic induction, a process that involves a long series of questions and instructions. Hypnotic induction can be administered by a hypnotist or by the subject him or herself. Contrary to popular belief, subjects who have been hypnotized are not asleep or engaging in sleepwalking, but rather are awake and responding to and focusing on the suggestions of the hypnotist.

What is Hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is the term used when hypnosis is used for therapeutic purposes. Hypnotherapists use guided relaxation, intense concentration, and focus to help their patients achieve a heightened sense of awareness (a kind of “trance”) in which they are able to zone in on specific behavioural issues and address them by making positive changes.

The Power of the Mind

Hypnotherapy can help modify a variety of behaviours and habits and it is dependent on the power of the mind, not mind-altering drugs. In this way, hypnotherapy is not at all dangerous. The only danger is that it may or may not work in helping you achieve a specific behavioural goal, but it will not harm your body in any way. Hypnosis will not cause you to lose control of your free will, only make you more open to suggestions. So it is not a form of mind control or manipulation. It is completely safe and many patients find it extremely helpful in changing the way they think about things and perceive things.

Common Use of Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy can be used to help a patient quit smoking,  relieve stress, anxiety, depression, phobias, and sleep disorders. It is considered an aid to psychotherapy and it has become increasingly popular as people are becoming more aware of how much power the mind has in influencing the way we think and behave. We are the creators of our thoughts and our thoughts are the creators of our actions. There are many certified hypnotherapists and there are hypnotherapy organizations in Australia , America, England as well as in various countries across the globe.

If you have some habits  you are looking to change, are struggling with a psychological condition, or are just seeking ways to expand your mind and the way you think about the world; hypnosis offers a great chance to condition your thinking in positive, creative, and helpful ways.  It is definitely worth considering when looking for ways to improve your quality of life.

One of those habits is often smoking.

Can Quit Smoking Lose Weight

You’ve probably heard that smokers lose weight just from smoking, and that people who quit smoking start gaining weight.

If you’re a smoker, think about your other lifestyle habits. Odds are, they aren’t the healthiest choices either. Maybe your cholesterol levels are too high, or maybe you don’t get enough exercise, leading to poor metabolism and even poorer dietary habits.Quit Smoking Hydrates the Skin

If you’re looking to quit smoking to help you lose weight, or vice versa, find an accredited hypnotherapist in your area. He or she can help you develop good habits that will help you become a healthy nonsmoker!

Can quit smoking help you lose weight?

It’s widely believed that people who quit smoking gain five to ten kilos on average. Depending on the person, this can be due to overeating after quitting smoking. Many people eat more after quitting because of the oral fixation. Because the smoking habit is so deeply instilled in a smoker even after quitting, they need to replace the feeling of a cigarette in their mouth with something else, such as sucking on lollipops or crunching on pretzels. This often occurs in people who are not using hypnosis  but are giving up smoking using other methods which does not change the habit as happens in hypnosis.

Another reason why many people gain weight after quitting smoking is because of a drop in metabolism. Since nicotine raises the body’s metabolic rate, the absence of nicotine decreases it. This can cause you to gain weight if you do not change your movement or dietary habits once you quit smoking.

But—it is possible, when quitting smoking, to lose weight. Think about it! Quitting smoking for life takes a ton of dedication, self-motivation, and thought. Wouldn’t it make sense to use this opportunity to better your life as a whole, rather than only quitting smoking? Your health will undoubtedly benefit from you quitting smoking, but imagine how much better you’d feel if you quit smoking and, say, exercised for 20 more minutes each day. If you’re ready to quit smoking, take this opportunity to truly better your life and future. Check the information below.

If you are ready to become a nonsmoker and improve your life as a result, hypnotherapy is for you.

Why hypnotherapy is the right choice for quitting smoking

Hypnotherapy is unlike any other method to help you quit smoking, and it doesn’t come along with weight gain. Once you have just one session with a hypnotherapist, you are not a smoker and your habit is gone. This means you will not turn to food to replace cigarettes—the urge won’t even be there anymore.

Quitting smoking with more traditional methods, such as going cold turkey, using the nicotine patch, or taking medications, means you’ll still have to fight temptation, but quitting smoking with hypnotherapy eliminates the temptation from your life completely. You won’t wake up the morning after hypnotherapy craving a cigarette. The most important thing, however, is your commitment and “Want” to quit. If you don’t bring the want to quit to your hypnotherapy session, the treatment will not work. You also need to trust your hypnotherapist and be confident in him or her. Any shred of doubt will prevent you from becoming a nonsmoker with hypnotherapy.


So, if you want to lose weight while quitting smoking, you need to be determined to change your lifestyle and stay motivated to developing and maintaining good health. And hypnotherapy can help you do just that!

Maureen Hamilton – Hypnotherapist

Maureen Hamilton is a hypnotherapist and has helped over a thousand people to quit smoking. The experience and feedback coming from clients indicate that there are two groups of people. Group A do put on weight, on average 5 -10 kilos although very occasionally even higher. However in Group B people do not put on weight in fact quite often they lose weight. So why this discrepancy.

Note: Well Group A are probably not eating very healthy in the first place and when the energy kicks in on Day 4 or thereabouts, they don’t take advantage of that and increase their exercise. Meanwhile Group B as soon as that energy kicks in they are doing exercise and feeling healthy, breathing better and increasing their self confidence and self esteem. Most importantly they are not putting on weight and in fact quiet often lose weight.

Final thoughts

With a hypnotherapist, the hardest part about quitting smoking is finding your inspiration. Once you’re determined, you can work together with your hypnotherapist so that your future never includes another cigarette.

Whether or not you’ve tried other methods to quit smoking in the past, you can find fulfilling and permanent success in hypnosis.
