So, how does the Quit Smoking in 60 Minutes Program work?
There are two parts to the method: advanced hypnosis and NLP. While hypnosis used to be shrouded in misconception and suspicion, these days it is a scientifically-proven method – used in medicine, dentistry, law enforcement, education, and professional sports. The second part of the system deals with your unique needs, using NLP to reprogram your behaviour.
How does hypnosis for smoking cessation work?
Our brains function on two levels: consciously and unconsciously. The conscious part of our brain influences the behaviour we are aware of; we make decisions, think and act using our conscious mind. This part of our mind processes on average seven pieces of information at a time. The unconscious part of the brain is where it gets really interesting. This part of the brain processes millions of pieces of information all at once, enabling the functioning of our bodies and controlling behaviour we’re not aware of – in other words, our habits.
While we may believe we can control our behaviour with the rational, conscious part of our mind, all behaviours are actually controlled via the emotional, unconscious part of our brain. We can be aware that our habits are harmful – such as smoking – and want to stop, but find ourselves unable to do so. This is why hypnosis is so effective: it interacts directly with the unconscious mind. The relaxed state of hypnosis allows re-training of the unconscious mind, making it easy to change compulsive, life-long habits with just one session.
