Time to get rid of those old beliefs about smoking
Normally people will use their will power to try to stop. This creates irritability, mood swings, bad temper, cravings and possible weight gain. This tends not to happen when you use hypnotherapy for smoking cessation.
Our hypnotherapy to stop smoking programme takes only one session of up to two hours. During this intensive session we will look at all of your triggers to smoke and find ways to help you to ignore, forget or respond differently to them. It is a fairly common experience for us to take a 60-a-day smoker and for them to walk out of our clinic and not worry about smoking again.
The Surrey Institute of Clinical Hypnotherapy’s latest hypnotherapy to stop smoking programme achieves success rates of up to 80 per cent from a single session.
Hypnotherapy stop smoking was proven to be the best method of stopping smoking by a meta analysis conducted at Iowa University by Viswesvaran & Schmiidt (1992) involving 72,000 subjects which was featured in the New Scientist magazine. This study looked at many different ways to stop smoking and hypnotherapy was shown to be the most effective method.
David Pollock, director of ASH, said he was surprised by the success of hypnosis, which anecdotal evidence had suggested was not very effective. One organisation not surprised by the results is the British Society of Medical & Dental Hypnosis. Christopher Pattinson, the society’s academic chairman, said, “Current hypnotherapy techniques are a far cry from their popular image of music-hall tricks involving swinging fob watches. The latest hypnotherapy techniques achieve success rates of up to 60 per cent from a single session.”

How does hypnotherapy to stop smoking help?
What about putting weight on if I give up? Any possible alternative habits are taken care of in the carefully worded session and you will find that you feel great, without resorting to other habits such as nail-biting or overeating.
What about people tempting me afterwards? You should be able to stop smoking without tension or irritability so there should be no temptation to smoke if somebody offers you a cigarette.
A recent study, published in the Lancet, showed lifelong smokers died a decade earlier than those who never started.
The study followed the first generation of women to start smoking during the 1950s and 60s. As women started smoking on a large scale much later than men, the impact of a lifetime of cigarettes has only just been analysed for women.
“What we’ve shown is that if women smoke like men, they die like men,” said lead researcher Prof Sir Richard Peto, from Oxford University.
He said, “More than half of women who smoke and keep on smoking will get killed by tobacco.”
- Smoking is responsible for more than five million deaths worldwide every year
- Smoking tobacco is a known or probable cause of around 25 diseases
- Cigarette smoke contains 4,000 chemicals that can damage the human body
- Eighty of the chemicals in cigarettes are known to cause cancer
“Hypnotherapy to stop smoking works, amazingly well actually. Smoking kills, stopping works and the earlier you stop the better according to this study.” said Paul Howard from The Surrey Institute of Clinical Hypnotherapy.
Some smokers, especially those who have smoked for years, believe that the damage to their health is irreversible. However you should be aware that it is never too late to stop smoking. In fact the benefits of quitting start immediately. So why not take our hypnotherapy stop smoking programme and get the benefits now.

|First I was a bit cautious about trying hypnotherapy as I was not sure what to expect. However, as my anxiety was getting worse, I was very keen to try anything to help me get out of the constant state of fear and racing heart and mind. After the very first session I already felt very hopeful about this technique. Paul H. is a very honest and easy to talk to person and despite my very shy personality and deep insecurities, I felt very comfortable discussing all my issues with him. I also very much appreciated all the advice Paul's given me. It was a real eye opener to see how many of my issues have connection to my past and how much I kept holding onto all my negative beliefs all these years. There has been a lot of questions constantly on my mind for many years and I very much appreciated the constant sense of relief I felt after they finally got answered. I found the therapy very effective, helpful and would very much recommend it to anyone who is no longer willing to put up with their anxiety. Again, thank you very much for everything, Paul.|
Helped me so much
|Jasmine-Amy on April 14, 2018 at 22:12:48|
|I went to Suzannah for help with a really traumatic incident that I was struggling to move on from. I had 4 sessions with Suzannah. Each time I visited the practice, she made me feel so comfortable and at ease. She was not judgmental in any way and made me feel very safe. She was very understanding of my circumstances and really helped me. She recorded all my sessions so I could listen at home too and she adapted the sessions to what I needed help with for that week. After my 4 sessions with Suzannah, she was still available when I needed advice and I’m so grateful for that. Such a lovely woman and a wonderful hypnotherapist. She has helped me so much! I will definitely be returning to Suzannah if I feel I need any other sessions in the future and I would highly recommend Suzannah|
Amazing result after only a few sessions.

|I came to see Paul Howard to help with confidence issues, and social anxiety symptoms. He took his time to listen to all my worries, and concerns, and what I wanted changed. He was clever in finding out where my confidence, and social anxiety issues came from, and made a treatment plan. I felt very comfortable being open with Paul, and it was easy to relax into hypnotherapy sessions. After only 4 sessions, I noticed a huge difference in how I felt about my confidence, and started to live my life more as someone with confidence would. I even applied for a job I would normally have shied away from, and got it ! Would highly recommend seeing Paul for social anxiety issues.|
Child with sleep issues.
|Kate Slatter on March 18, 2018 at 16:04:18|
|I recently brought my daughter Emily to see Suzannah as she has been suffering with nightmares and had been frightened to sleep on her own for around 6 months. Suzannah spent the first part of our session putting Emily at ease and finding out in depth all about her fears. She did a couple of visualisations and then went on to the main hypnotherapy. Emily ‘woke up’ from her session excited and happy, the effect was immediate. We had another session with Suzannah a week later where she worked on Emily’s confidence and self-belief. Since the sessions Emily has been a lot happier in herself and has been sleeping in her own room again. We both really liked Suzannah and I felt that she has a natural way with children. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her and would definitely go back to her should we need any help in the future.|
Clearly a life-changing experience

|I can't recommend highly enough The Surrey Institute of Clinical Hypnotherapy. I did 3 sessions with Paul Howard confronting my fear of flying and other issues. The sessions were very professional and he spent time beforehand to explain how clinical hypnotherapy works and the entire process of hypnosis . I felt safe and listened to . As a result of the sessions, I no longer fear getting on a plane and have been travelling in comfort ever since. Paul made me understand what causes fear on the first place and how to battle against it. After only 3 sessions, I have better understanding about the world around me and Paul has given me the tools to go thru everyday life without stress. My communication with Paul Howard and the sessions, gave me new strengths and I decided to enrol into one of the courses The Surrey Institute of Clinical Hypnotherapy runs . Clearly a life-changing experience .|
Anxiety cured and inner peace secured
|Lindsay on February 22, 2018 at 22:48:01|
|Hi, I went to see Paul Howard looking for a new approach to anxiety issues, to be able to relax, embrace calm and to change my responses to unwanted and unsolicited stimuli. After four sessions I am living life differently as I want to live it and I now feel free to make choices when before I was paralysed but an inexplicable fear. I'm very pleased at my decision to try hypnotherapy, being originally very sceptical. Paul has helped me understand the role I play in my own anxiety and I now understand I am not in control. I have felt a deep calm descend over me in the past week which I have never felt before. Well worth the investment. Thank you for giving me a life!|
A success and highly recommend
|Russ on February 15, 2018 at 15:11:48|
|I visited the clinic for hypnotherapy to stop smoking. I saw Suzi Miller who I thought was absolutely fantastic. I was sceptical at first but her joyous manner relaxed me and I was hypnotised on the first attempt. I haven’t smoked for 4 months now and have been back for a top up session as I was thinking about it on a few occasions. I feel fitter, healthier, and have about £250 a month to use on something other than smoking cigarettes. Highly recommend if you’re looking to give up and ask for Suzi, she’s brilliant. Russ.

Very pleased with the progress I have made
|SKC on November 12, 2017 at 21:12:42|
|I cannot rate Paul Howard highly enough. After several weeks of feeling incredibly stressed, unwell and generally out of sync with life, I decided to try hypnotherapy as almost a last resort. From the minute I stepped into Surrey institute I immediately felt at ease and with each of the sessions I have begun to feel better. Paul was very reassuring about things and spoke to me in an honest and supportive way, which really helped me put things back into perspective. He gave me excellent strategies to cope with some of the issues I was having and even gave me recommendations beyond the hypnotherapy sessions, which I have been able to explore further. I am very grateful for each session and know that I will continue to draw on these long into the future. Money well spent. Thank you very much!|
Time well spent....
|BP on November 11, 2017 at 16:00:40|
|Having experienced anxiety for several years and in recent years it had taken on a new level which I wasn't comfortable with and wanted to do something about it. I came across Paul's website whilst searching for something else and decided to try hypnotherapy. During the sessions Paul gave me a different way to look at my anxiety and now I don't view it as being uncomfortable. The sessions have been time well spent.|
Best choice I have ever made.
|Charlotte on November 08, 2017 at 08:33:47|
|I came to resolve my anxiety and self deprecation. Honestly the BEST decision I have ever made - Paul was so easy to talk to and really understood where I was coming from. This has been life altering and could not recommend enough. Thank you so so much.|
