Does Hypnotherapy Work? #smokefree


Thanks to my workplace, Deakin University, I attended a session on hypnotherapy to help quit smoking yesterday. Key takeaways were:

  • Hypnotherapy is the ability to retain information when in an altered state of awareness.
  • Easiest to hypnotise are those who have good focus and imagination.
  • Success rate approx. 70%. In order to achieve success, you need to at least 50% want to quit.
  • The therapist who presented specialises in ‘rapid hypnosis’ which means you may need as little as two sessions.

This website has more information on hypnotherapy to quit smoking. I say try everything, and am contemplating hypnotherapy to help me in my resolve to stay quit.
