SMOKING CESSATION

Hypnosis and the Emotional Freedom Techniques work hand in hand to reduce or eliminate cravings. This powerful combination of techniques has helped many people become non-smokers. However, the most important element in successfully quitting smoking (or chewing tobacco) is the determination and readiness of the individual. You need to be clear that you want to stop for yourself, not for your doctor, your partner or anyone else. There needs to be a commitment to using the tools you will be learning to make this important health and lifestyle change.

Some people who participate in Wellspring’s smoking cessation program find that quitting is a breeze and a joy, requiring very little effort beyond a daily listening of their reinforcement tape. Others find that they need to apply the EFT techniques frequently throughout the day to stay on track during the first few weeks.

Because I want you to succeed, I require a consultation first, with no obligations, for everyone who wishes to consider using my services to quit smoking or chewing tobacco. During this consultation, we will discuss your motivation and readiness to quit. I will teach you the Emotional Freedom Techniques and we will assess how useful it will be to you. We will also do a “mini” hypnosis session. Many people find that by using the tools learned in this first consultation, they are successfully and comfortably able to decrease their smoking or chewing before they even come in for their first full-length session. Do not smoke (or chew) for 4 or more hours before coming in for this consultation. If you do this, it allows you to "test drive" the hypnosis and EFT techniques more thoroughly. As everyone has different levels of responsiveness to hypnosis, coming in with strong tobacco cravings will give you a realistic idea of how well the techniques will work for you when you quit smoking.

The consultation fee for smoking cessation is $85.00 for 1.5 hours. If we agree to work together, we will set up three sessions. The sessions will take place over the course of one or two weeks. The cost for all three sessions is $360.00 for non-prime time sessions and $460.00 for prime time sessions.

Non-prime time hours are 6am - 3pm
Prime time hours are 3pm - 7pm

For most people, these three sessions are all that is needed to become comfortably, confidently tobacco free. I recommend continuing to use the tapes at home on a daily basis, for 2-3 months to reinforce the changes and make them permanent. Occasional listening after that is relaxing and reinforcing.

Occasionally, more support is needed. If this is this case, we will discuss a plan that gives the necessary support to become and remain tobacco free.
