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.

I actually can’t believe that I used to smoke – what a stupid thing to do.  Stopping smoking was one of the best things I have ever done.  What a relief to not be desperate for a Malborough light when stuck in a traffic jam and my packet is empty – that awful, almost panicky feeling!  What a relief to know that I am not contributing to possible health problems.  What a relief that I am free from that stinky stale smell, plus I have more money to spend on nice things.  In fact, I have worked it out, I am approx. £2912 a year better off!!  Wow, that’s a lot of money…..hmm, what shall I buy now?

This October, lots of people are taking part in the 28 day challenge to stop smoking .  Are you one of them?  If you are, congratulations, you should be very proud of yourself.  If you aren’t but would like to (or are desperate to) stop smoking, hypnosis can help you.

In just one session you can become a proud, happy  NON-SMOKER. I use a special method that combines hypnotherapy and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP).  I help you break the connections with smoking, whether they are emotional (such as stress or boredom) or physical (such as after a meal or with a drink).  Sometimes, smokers worry that by giving up, they will gain weight or they worry about what they will do with their hands.  I give you powerful suggestions so that there will be no increase in your appetite on becoming a     NON-SMOKER.

For those of you who have tried stopping smoking just using willpower, quitting smoking may have been difficult for the first few days. However the powerful hypnosis techniques can help you get through this period much more easily.

So, what will you do with all that extra cash??

It is National No Smoking Day on Wednesday 13th March 

Would you like to say ‘No’ to the offer of  a cigarette standing outside in the freezing cold on 13th March and feel good about it?

Are you embarrassed about that stink on your breath or clothes?
Do you feel ashamed that cigarettes have a control over you?
Do you want to improve your health / breathe easier?
Are the cost of cigarettes hurting your pocket?
Are friends and family nagging you?
Are you afraid of an extra risk of cancer?

If you have answered yes to any of the above, then read on…….

Are you scared to stop or making excuses?
How will you deal with stress?  What if you fail?  What if you succeed?  These fears cause you to sabotage any attempt to stop.  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 ………….stop trying to stop with the methods you have used and failed with, because they don’t work for you. For example, if using nicotine patches doesn’t help you to stop smoking, taking nicotine some other way isn’t likely to help you stop smoking either.

Think about how you can stop?
WillPower…….Acupuncture………..Patches………..and of course…………. Hypnosis………… (one of the best ways to help you stop – just have a look at my testimonials :).  I’m sure you know someone who has stopped smoking but the method that they used doesn’t necessarily signify it is the right method for you (but of course it might be :).

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.  Money back guarantees are usually a bad idea and more expensive does not mean better.
