Yesterday in the Daily Mail was an extract from a book written by a couple of scientists investigating whether alternative therapies work. For a start, I 've always considered hypnotherapy to be complimentary as opposed to alternative, and I'm all for hypnotherapy distancing itself away from some of the other alternative therapies out there such as aromatherapy, eft, nlp, tft, hopi ear candles etc. If any of these have worked for you that's great, but I don't use them in my practice.
One of the extracts about hypnotherapy stated that “hypnotherapy has not been proven to help people stop smoking”. I nearly fell off my chair with laughter.
Hypnotherapy has time and time again been proven to be effective in many areas of human behaviour, especially helping people to stop smoking.
I have helped many people stop smoking for good using hypnotherapy and it makes me cringe when people simply denounce what is blatantly obvious, that hypnotherapy does indeed help people stop smoking. Remember also that us hypnotherapists are as different as chalk & cheese, as night & day, so techniques and methods vary from one hypnotherapist to the next.
If any NHS or Primary Care Trust employee or any Doctor would like to discuss monitoring the results of people who visit me to stop smoking, as long as the clients gives their permission, I would be happy to talk to you about it. I won't hold my breath waiting for the call.
