Hypnotherapy Q & A:
Q -What is hypnosis?
A- Hypnosis is an altered state of consciousness that occurs between the waking and sleeping states. Other altered states occur daily; when driving on “autopilot”, meditation, yoga, even when watching the television.
Q- What should I expect?
A- Expect to be successful and be open to whatever shows up. People who are optimistic about allowing the process get the most benefit from hypnotherapy.
Q- What if I get stuck in hypnosis?
A- You are always in control and can wake from hypnosis at your own will. Some people are happy to stay in the relaxed state of hypnosis and aren't as eager to return to conscious reality.
Q- Will I remember what happened during hypnosis?
A- It is possible that you do not remember everything during your session. Some people go into a hypno-sleep because of the level of relaxation that is reached. Your subconscious mind will take in any information that it is in agreement with, whether or not your conscious mind can recall it.

Statistics and Resources for Hypnotherapy Smoking Cessation
Hypnosis clients are twice as likely to remain smoke-free after 2 years, than those who have tried to quit on their own. An article in the Journal of Nursing Scholarship (2005; 37:3, pages 245-250), have shown that there is a 90.6% success rate for smoking cessation using hypnotherapy. It has been shown in the results of more than 600 studies, including 72,000 people from America and Europe that on average hypnotherapy is over 3 times as effective as any nicotine replacement methods such as e-cigarettes, nicotine gum, and nicotine patches. Hypnosis for smoking cessation is over 15 times as effective as trying to quit smoking alone.
(University of Iowa, Journal of Applied Psychology, How One in Five Give Up Smoking. October 1992.).
Group hypnosis for smoking cessation showed a success rate of 22% less than that of individual hypnosis sessions, however, group hypnosis was still demonstrated as being more effective than drug interventions.
