We use a range of techniques to help you quit with ease. These include Hypnotherapy, Mindfulness, Counselling, Crave Surfing and others.
At Breathing Free, we recognise that the process of change is personal and individual. We focus on a holistic approach towards helping you overcoming smoking.
In addressing your individual biological, psychological, your current life situation as well as social influences that have prevented you from overcoming the behaviour and addiction we provide a very personalised approach.
Many clients are surprised and delighted with the new cooperation of their subconscious and are easily able to lose their desire to smoke cigarettes and cigars.
There may be some physiological discomfort during the withdrawal period following the cessation of tobacco use, but again with hypnosis these effects can be reduced and the period of discomfort shortened.
We believe successful recovery is not about will power but about finding a simple way to deal with the following:
- Nicotine addiction
Getting Over Nicotine Addiction
With Hypnotherapy and Visualisation Techniques, we can begin to change neural pathways of our brain. Leading scientists of brain research have recently discovered that the human brain can change itself. They call this Neuroplasticity.
It has been found that with certain techniques and thoughts processes humans can rewire their brains to cure previously incurable addictions, behaviours and patterns. Once a particular plastic change occurs in the brain and becomes well established, it can prevent other changes from occurring.
Our brain has tremendous capacity for recovery repair and change.
- Learning Crave Surfing
An important part of the quitting success process is learning ways to overcome cravings. This is mostly important during the first 5-10 days until the nicotine is out of the blood stream.
We provide with new skills so that you can learn to surf through these cravings one at a time.
- Overcoming individual behavioural cues
Overcoming Individual Behavioural Cues
Many smokers have certain triggers or cues that makes it difficult for them to quit smoking. These cues trigger urges or craving at certain times, places, situations, emotions or with certain people. Often a smokers mind has been trained to expect a new supply of nicotine when these triggers occur.
It is important to address these issues and find alternative ways of coping before attempting to quit smoking.
- Overcoming the Resistance Shift
Overcoming The Resistance Shift
One of the common reasons many people have been unsuccessful in their attempts to quit is because there is a small part of them that still wants to continue smoking.
An important part of the process is to explore and understand what this blockage is. Often it is buried so deep inside the subconscious that we may not be aware that it is there.
Through Clinical Hypnosis we can gain insight, and eliminate this block to allow you a much easier and less resistant path towards recovery from smoking. Once the shift occurs in your subconscious perception, the conscious mind turns the final corner and there is no going back.
- Restoring the bodies oxygen level so that it does not feel depleted to crave another cigarette
Restoring Oxygen Levels
The quality of our breathing affects the whole body in particular, the nervous system, the heart, the digestive system, muscles, sleep, energy levels, concentration and memory and much more.
We not only breathe in oxygen but also life energy.
With certain breathing techniques, we help you to restore our oxygen levels so as the body feels energised, peaceful, and reduce the desire to search for a cigarette.
