Local practitioner urges smokers to quit for Stoptober

A North London based hypnotherapist is encouraging the public to look for practitioners registered with the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) if they want to use hypnotherapy to help them give up smoking during Public Health England’s (PHE) Stoptober campaign.

According to the Royal Society for Public Health and the government-backed Professional Standards Authority (PSA), practitioners on Accredited Registers such as CNHC’s are an untapped resource who have a key role to play in supporting public health initiatives such as giving up smoking.

Commenting on the accredited registers workforce, PSA Chief Executive Harry Cayton said: “It is a vital network through which we can support behaviour change and ultimately improve the public’s health: whether it is signposting people to smoking cessation services or offering brief lifestyle advice on healthy eating, accredited registers practitioners are undoubtedly an unsung and instrumental part of the wider public health workforce.” [1]

Bridgette Mansfield Hypnotherapy says: “Hypnotherapy is often used to help clients achieve the behavioural change needed to stop smoking but it’s so important the public use someone who knows what they are doing. As a CNHC registrant my credentials have been checked so the public can choose with confidence.”

Bridgette has been helping people to quit smoking for 10 years.  Being an ex-smoker herself, she knows the relief that comes with being a non- smoker.  In just one session, you can become a happy non-smoker easily and effortlessly.

Bridgette Mansfield Hypnotherapy added that: “Hypnotherapy is one of 16 therapies registered by the CNHC. There are over 6,000 practitioners on the register and members of the public can search the CNHC register to find practitioners in their local area.”

  • Stoptober is a campaign run by Public Health England in partnership with local authorities and the NHS. The campaign lasts 28 days because the evidence says if you can stop smoking for 28 days you are five times more likely to give up for good. Details of the campaign can be found here: Stoptober – Public Health England
  • CNHC’s register is accredited by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care.
  • All practitioners registered with CNHC have demonstrated they meet UK-wide standards.
  • In October 2017 the Royal Society for Public Health and the Professional Standards Authority published ‘Untapped Resources: Accredited Registers in the Wider Workforce’, a joint report which highlighted the role that practitioners on accredited registers can and do play as part of the wider public health workforce.

Firstly, why do you want to stop?    We all have different reasons!

Are you fed up with stinking like an ashtray? Are you afraid of an extra risk of cancer? Do you want to improve your health / breathe easier? Is it financial reasons? Are you embarrassed about having stinky breath? Are friends and family nagging you?  Are you worried about aging prematurely.  Is it inconvenient standing out in the cold and rain?  Do you feel controlled by fags?

If you have tried to stop before, do you know why it didn’t work?

Was your will power not strong enough?  Peer pressure?  Were you stressed?  Angry?  Fed up?  Did alcohol play a part?  Are you making excuses?

Are you scared to stop?

Most people are afraid to stop smoking – what if you fail?  What if you succeed?  These fears cause you to sabotage any attempt to stop.    Do you worry about what you will do with your hands?  What if I get stuck in a traffic jam, what will I do if I don’t smoke?  How will I deal with stress?  How will it change me?  It’s what I have always done?  You can overcome these fears if you understand them – you will find a way to work it out.

If what you are doing isn’t working, then do something else!

For example, if taking nicotine doesn’t help you to stop smoking, taking nicotine some other way isn’t likely to help you stop smoking either.  The physical habit of smoking will not be replaced by a nicotine substitute.

What is the best method for me to stop smoking?

We are all different and so certain methods will be successful for some and not for others.  So, if your friend stopped by using the conscious act of willpower, this does not necessarily mean it will work for you or if you know someone who succeeded with hypnotherapy, that doesn’t necessarily signify it is the right therapy for you (but of course it might be as hypnotherapy has one of the highest success rates in stopping smoking!).

Choose the right hypnotherapist for you

There are many people out there promising they can stop you smoking.  The only person who can stop you smoking is YOU.  A therapist can HELP you to stop smoking.  When choosing the right therapist for you, check their qualifications.
