Paradigm Hypnosis Smoking Cessation
If you want to quit smoking forever, then let Paradigm Hypnosis help you become a non-smoker easier than you ever thought possible using our smoking cessation protocol.
The techniques we use are based on the Roehm Smoking Cessation Protocol, techniques taught by Igor Ledochowski of the Hypnosis Training Academy, the work of Bruce Eimer, Ph.D, and our own experience helping clients quit smoking.
Questions and Answers
How many sessions does your Smoking Cessation protocol require?
Our technique is designed to be successful using a single session. Some clients purchase future appointments in advance for their own peace of mind.
How long is your Smoking Cessation session?
Our normal single sessions last up to one hour. Our Smoking Cessation protocol typically requires more time, lasting up to two hours.
What are the most common reasons for your Smoking Cessation protocol to require additional sessions?
The number one reason is simply that the client does not truly want to stop smoking yet. We actively work to identify such clients before the session, so that they do not waste their time or money. We will only proceed if we believe the client is ready to stop smoking.
The next most common reason is an unstable motivation for change. This is typically the result of an extrinsic motivator, almost always a person other than the client themselves. Ex: someone who stops smoking solely in order to please someone else (such as a spouse) may resume smoking to "punish" the other person during a conflict. We actively work to identify and circumvent unstable motivators before and during the session.
The least common reason is an issue called "secondary gain". Ordinarily, this is caused by the existence of an unconscious benefit to smoking, resulting in the client eventually resuming smoking in order to receive that "payoff". This is far more common with weight problems than smoking. Again, we actively work to identify and circumvent secondary gains before and during the session.
How much do additional, follow up sessions cost?
If for some reason you want a subsequent session after the initial Smoking Cessation protocol, this will be priced at normal session rates. Repeating the full protocol will be unnecessary.
Can this work even if I have been a smoker for decades?
Absolutely. It doesn't matter whether you are an occasional social smoker or have been smoking daily for dozens of years. If you are ready to stop smoking, then we are ready to help you make that change.
