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.
