Hypnotherapy is the most effective treatment for helping people to stop smoking*
Many hypnotherapists offer a single stop smoking session and swear by its efficiency. This approach works short-term, but rarely lasts in the long run.
Empirical research shows that a more thorough, robust and comprehensive approach to stopping smoking quadruples the chances of success.**
In line with the findings of a comprehensive review* of 59 studies, conducted over several decades on the efficiency of hypnosis treatment in smoking cessations, I recommend 3 – 6 sessions of therapy for a successful outcome.

What My Clients Say
I met Liviu on a plane. It was only a three-hour flight and I was getting twitchy because I could not smoke. I was smoking three packs a day at the time and my girlfriend had just split up with me because I simply wouldn’t quit. In only three sessions with him, I managed to reduce the number of cigarettes to five a day, and after two more sessions I gave up completely. I feel like I’m a different man. It was such a lucky meeting. I’ve been a non-smoker now for 11 months, I’m back with my girlfriend and we’re engaged. Thanks Liviu!
