Stop The Bad Stuff
Stopping smoking habits and other bad habits using hypnotherapy has its merits and success rates. The “mind over matter” saying, though simplistic, does help a person in a fearful or painful situation, however this alone cannot work if it is not understood and practiced correctly.
Ideally the hypnotherapist will first explore the different reasons and causes that induce the individual to turn to the bad habit. The different reasons could be because of boredom, stress, nervousness, traumatic experiences, problems, etc.
When this has been determined the hypnotherapist will then introduce ideas and alternatives into the trance induced mind to counter the previous negative mind set. In using hypnotherapy, the subconscious mind is opened to accept the introduction of new ideas or feelings, suggestions or perceptions when addressing the link to the bad habits.
The hypnotherapist will be able to deeply ingrain the suggestion of the negative consequences of continuing with the current bad habit state. Alternatively a positive thought can also be suggested, to encourage the individual.
