If you’re ready to finally give up smoking for good, good for you! You’ve come to the right place. Whether this is your first time trying to kick the habit or your twentieth, it’s important to never admit defeat. Your health is too important an asset to jeopardize by continuing to smoke. Many people have found enormous success using hypnotherapy for smoking cessation.

The trained psychotherapists at Bayside Psychotherapy in Melbourne are available to help you achieve your goal of stopping smoking. Addiction counselling can give you tools to tackle issues that may be underlying your smoking habit – either via a face-to-face meeting at our clinic, or in secure online sessions. You can also download targeted self-hypnosis recordings to help you in the comfort and privacy of your own home, immediately. However you get help, taking the first step is vital!

Don’t let cigarettes continue to rule your life, drain your finances and harm your health.

Call us on (03) 9557 9113 or use our contact form to book your confidential counselling or hypnotherapy appointment, either online or face-to-face at our offices.

Let’s work together to obliterate the craving for nicotine.

People smoke for many different reasons. The genetic, or so-called “addictive personality” argument doesn’t fit our clinical experience. Our hypnotherapists have treated plenty of personality types who want to cease smoking, and they all have different histories, triggers and stress points. Smoking can create the illusion of relaxation or relief from anxiety, while in reality each cigarette puts great stress on the body. Failing health and the cycle of failed attempts to quit takes a toll on mental health. The good news is that most people are eventually able to become non-smokers and stay smoke-free after treatment, regardless of their personality traits.

Bayside Psychotherapy quit smoking counselling and hypnosis sessions are designed to help you take control of your smoking and start living a healthier life, while also getting to the bottom of deeper issues that may be blocking your progress.

How many sessions will I need?

The duration of treatment depends on many factors, including how willing you are to work through the issues that emerge. Be wary of under-qualified practitioners offering stop-smoking guarantees. Our hypnotherapists are psychologically minded, and their objective is to help you not only stop smoking, but stay quit by addressing underlying causes. Many people are referred to us by their doctors, for urgent help to give up smoking, and GP care and hypnotherapy can work well together. Including addiction counselling makes a powerful combination for long term success, and reduced chances of a relapse.

It may take only a few sessions for you to resolve your smoking habit. However, more regular sessions are likely to be indicated for long lasting results, until you have things under control. Your therapist will be able to get a better idea of how well the treatment is working after a few sessions. But regardless, investing in hypnotherapy should cost much less than indefinite donations to the tobacco industry. Start by asking yourself, right now, what will it cost you to not stop smoking?

You can call (03) 9557 9113 to discuss how we can help you. If you know you’re ready to start therapy, you can make an appointment for a face to face or online session with one of our therapists.

If you prefer self-help, or to accelerate your recovery, you can download a stop smoking self hypnosis MP3 recording to get started.

Note: Whilst we will do our best to assist you, we rely on clients’ commitment and participation in the treatment process to optimise results. Although some of our therapists work with people presenting with this condition, no guarantees of any outcomes can be made.
