Why is it when we decide to give up on habits that no longer serve us well, that we so often fail at these attempts and eventually we get back to where we started? The truth of it is, we have a conscious and subconscious mind and unless you align the two, the new behaviors or habits won’t work for you.
Can hypnosis help you to stop smoking
A fine example is that of giving up smoking.

Many people who seek hypnotherapy often introduce themselves using their name when attending their first session with their chosen Hypnotherapist. The second most common question they ask is, “how many sessions do you think I will need”?
Before a hypnotherapist can determine an estimated timeline regarding how many sessions a person may need, it is imperative that the initial session is used to establish the personal details of the person as well as what challenges are being experienced. It is very difficult to say with certainty exactly how many sessions a client may need but it is helpful to give an idea of what to expect.
