Hypnotherapy is a recognised form of treatment which uses sleep-like states to allow the therapist to talk more directly with the subconscious mind. I am a qualified Hypnotherapist registered with the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council.

The subconscious mind is always on, always protecting the part of the mind that builds patterns of behaviours to protect you from harm. Sometimes, however, those patterns can be unhelpful after a little while; for example with smoking.

Because the subconscious mind is always applying these protective methods, they can be very difficult to contradict consciously. This is why giving up a habit can seem so hard. You make the effort for 23 hours of the day, then let your self-control slip for just one hour, and the subconscious immediately feeds you the old pattern it “knows” you need. This should sound familiar to anyone who has ever “tried” to “give up” smoking.
