My name is Joseph Giove. I’m a biomedical engineer and a clinical hypnotist. I’ve helped thousands of people stop smoking over the last twenty five years. I created this video series to help you become free of the habit an addiction of smoking cigarettes.
What is involved in a clinical hypnotherapy session to stop smoking today?
If you smoke a pack a day or less and do not have any complicating issues or other addictions, I help people quit in one session. This is a 2 hour session where the first half of the session we address the triggers and associations. We look at the habitual part of smoking making sure we fully understand how cigarettes have tangled themselves into your life.
I also give instruction on cardiovascular and respiratory repair because as important as quitting smoking is it’s only going half way. The other half is becoming proactive in your recovery and we spend considerable time addressing that and giving you actual techniques to use as replacements for cigarettes that are healthy.
The second half of the session is under hypnosis. That is where the triggers and associations are dissolved. After the hypnotic session we review various guidelines to keep you free and minimize withdrawals and then you are free.
If you smoke over a pack a day or have other addictions, I would like to address the other addictions first. Over a pack a day I like to have two to three sessions with you so that we can taper down under a pack a day in those two to three weeks and then do the quit smoking sessions usually in one hour at that point.
The hypnotic sessions addresses all of the various situations you may encounter. If you have health issues like COPD, heart, cardiac issues, if you have addictions, or if you simply smoke a pack a day or less, we can take care of you in hypnotic session or a series of sessions.
