How it works

Brian Fleming M.A.R.H. M.B.I.H.B.S.C.H uses hypnotherapy to help
influence your subconscious mind and help you stop smoking. Hypnotherapy is a useful tool for breaking addictive cycles and getting the user back to a more healthy lifestyle.


Start your journey

Hypnotherapy can be a quick and effective method of reframing your thoughts. It has been proven to help people overcome addictions, phobias, anxieties and long-held habits that they want to be free from. We are here to lead you to better health.

Within the first week of stopping smoking, your breathing energy levels can improve and your energy levels can increase.

In the longer term – your risk of a heart attack and lung cancer can come down to 50% less than that of a regular smoker.
Hypnotherapy works by relaxing your conscious, active mind to a state that allows a skilled expert to essentially ‘communicate’ with your subconscious mind – which can often be the driving force behind addictive tendencies.

In this state, your subconscious mind can be more susceptible to suggestion – this can be an incredibly effective way of reframing your thoughts and allowing you to break long held habits.
A Hypnotherapy session at The Complementary Medicine Centre usually lasts around 1 hour. This is usually split into two parts.

The first part is where we ask you about the nature of your problem and discuss how hypnotherapy works.

The second part will be where we ask you to relax and guide you into a hypnotic state where we can make suggestions to your subconscious mind.

You can find out more about our Hypnotherapy sessions on the service page.
For many, one session of hypnotherapy targeted at stopping smoking is effective enough.

However, the longer you have had the habit the more sessions you may need to fully benefit from the treatment. This will be unique to the individual and your practitioner will make a judgement based on your needs.

Hypnotherapist, Brian Fleming, offers one-on-one as well as group Stop Smoking sessions. Find out more about our Group/Corporate sessions here.

My great nephew registers on the autism spectrum. It has been a joy for our family to see how much he has come on under Brian’s care. He can now communicate much more effectively with us as well as interacting in a greater way. We can’t thank Brian enough for what he has done for him.
