October is 'Stoptober' month.

Each year, Public Health England (PHE) runs the Stoptober quit smoking challenge, a mass participation event where smokers are encouraged to make a quit attempt in October. The campaign is based on research showing that if you can stop smoking for 28 days, you are five times more likely to stay smoke-free for good. Currently, nearly 60% of smokers still try to quit using willpower alone despite this being the least effective way. PHE's latest independent e-cigarette evidence review highlighted the widespread public misunderstanding of the harmfulness of both e-cigarettes and nicotine replacement therapies

Hypnotherapy has long been recognised by the NHS as an effective means of facilitating long-term smoking cessation. Mel Maelo is registered with the National Hypnotherapy Society and is experienced in assisting clients in this area. Get in touch this September in readiness for Stoptober. There is a 5% discount for any clients that book and pay for smoking cessation before 25 September 2019.

Does hypnotherapy really work?

The answer is YES, if you are really serious about giving it up. Two 90 minute sessions with Mel will assuredly set you on the healthier path of a non-smoker. Not sure? Here are some comments from previous clients that Mel has worked with in this regard:

Case 1:

I had hypnotherapy with Mel Maelo just over a year ago to help me stop smoking, I had been a heavy smoker since 13 so that's a 30 year habit stubbed out just like that ! I felt some withdrawal symptoms (mainly difficulty sleeping for the first week) but at no point did I feel tempted to actually smoke , I later had more hypnotherapy to help me with my anxiety which was equally as effective! ( my anxiety is linked to my illness not cessation of smoking) I cannot recommend her highly enough! Incredible results from an incredible woman! Thank you Mel you have changed my life! C.G. Southwick.

Case 2:

I went to see Mel about helping to stop smoking. I must admit that at first I was a little sceptical and didn’t know what to expect. Mel made me feel at ease from the word go but wasn’t lying when she said that she doesn’t pull any punches when helping people stop smoking. She went for my weakest points but boy did it have the desired effect. After seeing Mel and following her advice in the days and weeks after our hypnotherapy session I have not smoked. On the contrary I have felt physically sick at the thought or smell. I can really recommend Mel to help stop smoking, you have nothing to lose and so much to gain. G.W. Shoreham-by-Sea.
