The Gentle Mind

Stop smoking

Do you realise that when you smoke your heart races and your whole body becomes more agitated? So much for a relaxing cigarette.

Using Cognitive Behavioural therapy and hypnosis together we can change the way you think, behave, and feel about smoking.

Usually, just a two-hour session will give you the positive attitude and the mindset to quit.

Together we’ll look at the emotive reasons why you smoke and the evidence. Take a look for yourself.
