How EFT and Kinesiology-Based Methods Are Better Than Even Hypnosis To Stop Smoking

Posted by – June 23, 2011

Welcome to the continuing story of “Marcelle” (not her real name), one determined ex-smoker-to-be slowly but surely overcoming a stubborn smoking addiction. To give you some background, I have a good history of helping smokers quit in one session in London and usually within 6 sessions in Cape Town (different cultural stresses). Marcelle’s relatives quit with me in 2-3 sessions, and she does understand the benefits of going at her own pace, which is relatively slower but a very healing process.


We are using a mixture of EFT, Emotional Freedom Techniques, or Tapping, and kinesiology-based muscle-testing and treatment. The treatment is gentle and removes the emotional reasons behind the smoking. As these are removed, Marcelle is able to smoke less. Every time that we can, we draw up a plan to cut down on the daily number of cigarettes smoked. The last target that Marcelle had was 7 cigarettes. It is the 10th session, and Marcelle showed me her progress sheet. She had stuck to her target 3 days out of 6. On one of the days, she even went below it. So we started with a quick analysis.

The first part of the analysis was talking about the progress sheet to identify areas that needed more work. The three days of smoking more had several stress and habit factors. The most important (in my experience) were the following:
* A visit to relatives who kept giving Marcelle cigarettes to smoke with them, saying “Oh, take a cigarette”.
* A day which started with Marcelle saying to herself “Today, I’m going to improve”.

Then I started the muscle-testing. We tested for a few things that came up not relevant, and then I asked Marcelle to repeat “I´m going to improve” whilst pressing on her arm. The arm went weak. In other words, there is something about “I am going to improve” that made Marcelle fail that day. We talked a bit about that and investigated the theme of the following ideas that Marcelle felt were related:
* “My mother never stops criticizing me, and so will not stop if I stop smoking, so what’s the point”.
* “I’m going to fail anyway, so I may as well fail now”.
* “No matter how much I improve, my mother will not love me”.

I then asked Marcelle to find a time in her life that encapsulates the above. She came up with a specific childhood memory that on the surface seemed totally unrelated. But it had many aspects of root causes of smoking. The story started when Marcelle had been given some money by a visiting uncle. The rule was that she had to hand that money over to her mother. But on that occasion, Marcelle, wanting to keep the money away from her abusive mother, left to the shop as soon as the uncle had left, and she bought a big bag of sweets with all the money. Upon her return, her mother threw her out on the porch in the dark. She was out there for several hours before her father came home and let her back in. The event started at an intensity of 8. We tapped in down to about a zero, tapping on all the following aspects:
* The hurt.
* That no matter what Marcelle did, she got a hiding from her mother, so she may as well be naughty anyway.
* The danger of being out alone in the dark as a helpless child.
* That she physically could not eat all those sweets, although she had them with her when she was thrown out, and her mother and sisters finished them afterwards.
* That her mother will never stop criticizing her.
* That her mother will never act proud of her or be approving of her.
* That her mother continues to treat her badly, in start contrast to the favored sister, who gets the good treatment.
* Smoking is a rebellion against her mother, who does not like her smoking.
* Guilt about not loving her mother like a daughter “should”.

By the end of this tapping, Marcelle was so relaxed she was almost asleep. We tested again for “I’m going to improve”, and it tested strong and clear.

We then tapped on other smoking issues, clearing them. And finally we muscle-tested for a new smoking reduction plan. Marcelle tested weak for 7 cigarettes a day and strong for 6 a day and 5 a day. This is good, meaning that she really did not want to smoke more than 6. So we drew up a new plan of a maximum of 6 a day.

The plan also includes exercise. As we were setting up the new version, Marcelle proudly announced that she had had to take her jeans in at the hips. Now how’s that for a great treatment? She is losing the cigarettes and weight! And she is overcoming the many years of abuse without any psychotherapy, without painful talking about the issue over and over again, nor anything like that. Every time she leaves her session, she feels lighter and stronger, her face radiant and calm. This is why I like this treatment so much; because it is holistic and gentle, the results far-reaching into every aspect of the person´s life and well-being. Now who do you know who did hypnosis-only and got these great additional results?! As always, I look forward to the next session!

Stop Smoking Hypnosis Bromley London SE – Even If You Had Hypnotherapy Before

Dear Ex-Smoker-to-be,

Your 3-in-1 Hypnosis offer in Bromley includes Stop Smoking EFT (now made famous by the new mainstream book on EFT Tapping), Stop Smoking Kinesiology-based muscle-testing and treatment, and Advanced Hypnotherapy. The Hypnosis helps to get messages through to your subconscious mind enabling you to succeed, the EFT releases blocks in the path of your success, and and the kinesiology-based muscle-testing and treatment gets answers from your subconscious mind about the reasons behind your smoking, in order to release them. Without the underlying reasons why you smoke, you no longer have any reason to smoke, and so you can let go of the cigarettes.

We are open 9 am to 9 pm Most Days, subject to availability, so you can easily fit your treatment into your life. No more excuses!

Don’t wait till you suffer a heart attack or emphysema. And if you have already, it is even more urgent that you act now! If you smoke in the same room as a child, they do not deserve to be forced to breathe in cancerous fumes with you. And if you are smoking and pregnant, make sure you call me now for your appointment. You’ll be glad you did. I want to set you free from smoking forever. What’s more, I want you to refer your friends and family, so that they can benefit too.


And Michelle sent the following text about a follow-up appointment scheduled for a month after she quit: “Hello there, I am still doing great! I’m going to skip the appointment [tomorrow]… I’m very happy and proud :-)… Thanks for your support.”

Typically, my ex-smoker clients refer many others to me. Like John, who referred 11 clients in a three-month period after attending his stop smoking hypnotherapy session. After all, this is an essential freedom – to breathe, to have a tongue, voicebox, legs, a heartbeat, the things you took for granted when you (or your loved one) started smoking, are no longer secure. The smoking is killing you or a loved one now, and that is why you are reading this.
