Do you realise that when you smoke your heart races and your whole body becomes more agitated? So much for a relaxing cigarette.

Using Cognitive Behavioural therapy and hypnosis together we can change the way you think, behave and feel about smoking.

I usually only see you once for two-hour session to give you the positive attitude and the mind set to quit.

Together we’ll look at the emotive reasons why you smoke and the evidence. Take a look for yourself.
