Within a single year of quitting smoking, you can boost your lung capacity by as much as 10%. This not just helps improve your daily activities and behaviour, but also helps you decongest and get rid of cough.
You can reduce likelihood of disease or premature death
Quitting smoking comes with great benefits for your overall health and lifestyle, and has a direct impact on your life expectancy. Smoking is linked to some major diseases, and quitting it at the earliest can give your body a chance to heal and stay protected.
You can improve your energy levels
The level of carbon monoxide, one of the most harmful toxins for our body, is considerably higher in smokers. This impacts your daily activities and body functions, including muscles and brain.

Lesser carbon monoxide levels mean higher oxygen levels, which can improve alertness and energy levels significantly.

Imagine not having to spend money on cigarettes anymore, which are an expensive commodity. Quitting smoking can help you save as much as $22,000 over 10 years!
Westmead Stop Smoking Hypnosis FAQs
How does the Westmead Stop Smoking Hypnotherapy work?
The Westmead Smoking Cessation Hypnosis helps individuals train their subconscious mind in a relaxed environment, making it easier to transform compulsive, life-long habits within a single session. By using the power of hypnosis to reach out to your
subconscious, the hypnotherapist helps make your brain aware of harmful habits, wrong choices and a way to get rid of them.
Our brain functions on three levels: the conscious, the subconscious and the unconscious. The conscious part of our brain impacts our behaviour and choices that we are aware of. It dictates the decisions we make, our actions and our words. This part of our mind can process only seven pieces of information at a time, on average.
It is our subconscious mind that can process millions of pieces of information, all at once. This enables those functions of our body and behaviour that we may not be aware of – that is, our habits. All our behaviour, therefore, comes to be controlled by this dormant, subconscious part of our brain. This is what makes Westmead Stop Smoking Hypnosis so effective – it allows you to re-train your subconscious, making it easier to change compulsive, life-long habits with a single session.

Is online therapy effective?
e-Therapy or Online Therapy or Teletherapy is a new way of connecting with a therapist online through live video sessions. Yes, online therapy can be equally effective as physical sessions. Many people actually prefer online therapy due to the option of availing it from the comfort of their homes or because they cannot travel to the particular hypnotherapist of their choice due to distance or time issues.
However, video sessions have some pitfalls when compared to physical quit smoking hypnotherapy sessions. Technological issues such as internet connection downtimes and hardware glitches can play a role, and so can the use of gadgets which can be distracting and thus break a hypnotherapy session. Online therapy may also not be able to meet the needs of clients who need more intensive support such as those who are facing severe withdrawal symptoms.
