I frequently have clients that come to me to quit smoking and say that they had gone for hypnosis in the past and they had not been hypnotised.Trance

My question is what is being hypnotised? We all go into hypnosis in different ways and not always in the same way.

When you come for hypnosis to help stop smoking cigarettes be very careful not to have a pre-conceived idea of what a hypnotic trance is like. I have people say, “I heard every word you said”. My answer is I hope so otherwise I wasted my breath talking to you.

The best frame of mind to have when using hypnosis to quit smoking is an open one. Accept all the suggestions of the hypnotist and go with the flow. Do that and you will be successful.
