Over the years I’ve been doing this job, there are a couple of things I’ve become known for, and one of them is helping people stop smoking with hypnotherapy. It’s one of the things I enjoy the most about being a hypnotherapist and, at risk of blowing my own trumpet, I’ve become very good at it.
Some of my colleagues, in fact, many of them, dread working with smokers. Some of them will approach these sessions half-heartedly, which is why I suspect they don’t get better results, further denting their confidence. Whatever the reason, I encourage them to send all their smokers to me!
The more smokers I can help to stop smoking the better it is for everyone, right?
Myths about smoking and addiction
There are a lot of myths and misconceptions about smoking, and about addiction. I love to explore these ideas with clients and show them that stopping smoking is not the big scary thing it’s been made out to be, and in fact, it can even be easy.
Once I have helped my clients with their mindset, we don’t need to use hypnotherapy to stop smoking. Bear with me, I know that sounded weird…
We do still use hypnosis, but it’s to reinforce the shift in mindset, to remove triggers, and to cement their decision to stop.
No Cravings, No Triggers, No Problem
With my approach, triggers and cravings are no longer a problem. Many people don’t get any cravings at all, and those that do know how to make them pass quickly and painlessly. If you could remove these triggers and the associated cravings, wouldn’t stopping smoking be the easiest thing to do?
I’m so confident in my approach, and I am so successful in helping my clients stop smoking, I offer a 1-year guarantee – if you find yourself smoking at any time for up to a year, I’ll help you again, for free.
So give me a call. I don’t do hard sell, so if you just want to know more and have a chat, that’s fine too.

TESTIMONIAL FROM Nikki White
Smoking …. what’s that? …. that’s for the ‘outsiders’!
Not had any cravings although had a few ‘moments’ of ‘oh I could have one now’ quickly followed by ‘why on earth would I want to do that!!’
Biggest change for me is the internal dialogue of feeling I was a ‘part of a social group if I smoked’ now feeling I am part of a social group if I don’t
I smoked for 30 years on and off and always felt whenever I quit I had ‘lost’ something. ‘Lost social acceptance and my security crutch’, but now I don’t need that at all.
Thanks to you Benjamin, you got all my subconscious ‘parts’ to communicate with each other and come up with healthier alternatives to smoking. I haven’t felt more in control than I do right now.
I can’t thank you enough, not only for the smoking but also for my hayfever, which had got so bad this year I would spend nights crying and daytime pumped up on pills and sprays, which I haven’t touched since my hypnotherapy session with you.
TESTIMONIAL FROM Michael Evans
When I got to about 6 months after stopping I saw Ben in his family’s pub in Chevington, and he asked me if I would write a testimonial, so here it is.
When I left Ben I wasn’t sure anything had happened really. I felt good and relaxed, and I didn’t want a cigarette, but it was no different than normal. A couple of days later I could have had one, but I didn’t really want to so I began to think maybe it had worked.
I was a bit sceptical to be honest but it’s definitely done something as I haven’t smoked for 6 months and I don’t think I’ll want to now I’ve stopped for this long.
TESTIMONIAL FROM Dean Banks
Just wanted to say thanks, after more than thirty years of smoking and trying numerous quit smoking methods, I’m finally free.
I’ve waited this long ( 4 months) just to be sure of the ongoing effectiveness of the therapy. I have to say, when I first left your clinic I wasn’t sure how effective I felt it would be. I can confirm that since that day, despite being a forty a day smoker I’ve not had a single moment where I wanted a cigarette. Even on social events in the company of smokers. Once again thank you and I have already recommended several friends whom I’m sure will enjoy the same benefits.
If you wish to pass on my email address feel free to do so.
TESTIMONIAL FROM Marie Hunter
I loved this process. I can’t quite believe I’m saying that, but I found it to be relatively easy to stop smoking with hypnotherapy. I hardly had a craving or thought about cigarettes through the whole withdrawal period – a different experience to other times I had stopped!
As long as I kept my head in the right place I hadn’t the slightest temptation to go and smoke. There were a few moments where I felt something was missing, and almost went to reach for my cigs (which I had thrown away), but I caught myself doing it and reminded myself that I am now a non-smoker and then it was easy to forget about it.
After the session I drove all the way back to Bury thinking about what we had talked about over the last hour, but didn’t feel in the slightest bit tempted to smoke one.
