Hypnosis for Smoking Cessation: An Nlp and Hypnotherapy Practitioner’s Manual

Hypnosis for Smoking Cessation: An Nlp and Hypnotherapy Practitioner’s Manual

Hypnosis for Smoking Cessation: An Nlp and Hypnotherapy Practitioner's Manual

One of the first books written for hypnotherapists and NLP practitioners that is devoted entirely to the use of these techniques to help smokers quit their habit. Written by an experienced hypnotherapist, this book includes an overview of the nature of hypnotic transformation and the psychology of the smoker and then goes on to show why it is not enough to enable the smoker to stop during the sessions the therapist must also prepare the client for every situation in the real world to be able to stay a non-smoker for life.

Combining Ericksonian hypnotherapy and NLP with techniques taken from cognitive therapy, yoga and stress management, the book shows how to deal with every possible situation in smoking cessation. It shows how to influence the client before each session, how to deal with the client upon arrival to each session, and how to teach self-hypnosis and other techniques which will help maintain the client as a non-smoker after each session. Finally it provides a practical plan for marketing a hypnotherapy smoking cessation service at low cost but high impact. This book is an essential addition to every hypnotherapist’s library and one which readers will refer to again and again in their therapeutic work. A free CD contains two verbatim case studies as well as client handouts that can be reproduced.

    This review is from: Hypnosis for Smoking Cessation: An Nlp and Hypnotherapy Practitioner’s Manual (Paperback)

    This book is an excellent guide for practitioners to develop all the elements needed to foster success in clients who wish to stop smoking. It promotes a flexible approach in which the therapist is attuned to the client’s needs and subjective cognitive structures. The hypnotherapist is guided to use every detail of interaction with clients to build positive expectation and empowerment of clients to see themselves as non-smokers and believe that therapy will be successful. This book includes a CD and client handouts that can assist the therapist in applying what is taught in this manual. I found this book to be very thorough and well-thought out. It seeks to help you prepare clients to build resources that enable them to remain non-smokers even when faced with future stressors or triggers that might make vulnerable individuals relapse. I would highly recommend this book to other professionals and even will suggest this book to laypersons who wish to apply this great collection of insights and information to their own efforts to quit smoking.

    I heartily recommend this book to all of my hypnotherapist colleagues who support clients creating a tobacco-free future for themselves and their loved ones. It is a thorough and generous text — Mr. Botsford shares a vast experience and thoughtful reflection on most issues that might be encountered. He clearly also knows his theoretical stuff, and places his approach and guidance in the context of Erickson, Yapko, Hilgard, Bandler, Grinder, and other hypnotherapeutic/NLP luminaries. He even includes a CD with his handouts and transcripts, so the reader/practitioner doesn’t have to re-create them. A wonderful resource!
