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.

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.|

|I was becoming increasingly inhibited with anxiety issues and not wanting to take the tablet path a friend of mine ( who had previously been successfully treated at SICH for a similar issue ) recommended I try hypnotherapy. I am after four sessions of hypnotherapy a born again anxiety free individual, with a clear mind and a positive outlook going forwards ... The process is conducted in an extremely relaxed, calming and above all professional environment .... I would therefore also recommend SICH as a very viable alternative to the regular well trodden path of GP's etc ....|
Excellent therapy by outstanding therapists
|Ms Miller on July 19, 2017 at 19:28:02|
|I have been going to hypnotherapy at SICH on and off for a few months. This was after a recommendation from a friend. One therapist, Paul Howard, specialises in anxiety, for example, and after suffering with an anxiety related tremor, I was so happy when he stopped it using hypnosis. I had seen psychotherapist's, taken medication which only helped me so far. It never cured me. But, amazingly, Paul Howard stopped the tremor and gave me back my confidence. I am now even able to go on dates without the fear of spilling my drink all over the date! Drink...mmm. that was something I became too accustomed to and reliant upon after a hard day at work. I was putting on weight and once I started drinking I found it difficult to stop. But, Paul White is a problem behaviour specialist so SICH referred me to him. I have now been sober for 2 months and 2 days and I don't even fancy a drink anymore. I goto the pub and nightclubs more than I did as a drinker and can dance as much as my friends. I even had a week in Ibiza without having a drop. Its cheaper as I only drink water and I have since lost half a stone without even watching my diet. Another problem SICH treated me for was depression. I was diagnosed 20yrs ago and have been on and off medication and in and out of counselling. I completely value counselling but the 4 hypnotherapy sessions I had at SICH got me out of my bed and back to work after 4 weeks of severe depression. I have since (with my GP guidance) stopped taking my medication. I feel as if the hypnotherapy has changed my life. It's reached parts of me that the psychologist's have taken years to help me discover. I can whole heartedly recommend it to anyone. But, I wouldn't just trust anyone and was very lucky to be recommended to SICH by a friend. Thank you to both Paul's at SICH.|

|I wanted to wait a few weeks before I gave my review to make sure I gave an honest review on how I have been since I've finished my sessions with Paul Howard. I can honestly say I think he's changed my life. I was suffering with bad anxiety alongside other side affects. He has given me a new sense of freedom and I feel like my old self again if not better. Thank you for everything you do to help people become the best versions of themselves. I am no longer stuck. Thank you. Charlotte|

Exam nerves that froze me to the point of failure
|Pauline Mccullough on October 24, 2016 at 15:47:59|
|I came for hypnotherapy to ease my fears of taking an exam...I had failed the exam twice before, so felt going down the hypnotherapy route might help. I passed my third attempt. Paul was brilliant, the session and on-going recorded session that I was able to tap into at my leisure put me in a place of control. I highly recommend this company, I would definitely go back if I was faced with a situation again I felt would warrant support from Paul.|
I Feel a New Person Now
|Mark Eastwood on October 14, 2016 at 12:05:55|
|I would like to sincerely thank Paul Howard of the Surrey Institute of Clinical Hypnotherapy who has helped me greatly to overcome a number of issues that I wanted to resolve. I feel a new person now. Specifically Paul is very direct, honest and out to help. I don't understand why more people do not seek out hypnotherapy - it can help improve so many areas of life quickly and permanently (in my experience).|
Easy weight loss
|Lin Mcgraw on October 12, 2016 at 10:08:32|
|So easy to follow. First time in years I have been able to loose weight.|
Can't thank you enough!!!
|Julie Wright on October 06, 2016 at 08:45:49|
|I have been to the clinic for two separate issues, one being the fear of flying the other being anxiety. On both occasions my hypnotherapy sessions helped immensely. Thank you so much Paul, I couldn't if done it without you|
|Gemma Cox on July 04, 2016 at 11:29:10|
|I have seen Paul H on and off for the past 8 years. I first experienced anxiety after the birth of my second child, Paul gave me the knowledge and tools to deal with my anxiety and eventually it disappeared. I had flare ups at different stages in my life yet never as bad as the first episode. Paul always has time and patience, I have recommended hypnotherapy to friends and family. I found it extremely helpful.|
