'Proquit' Smoking Cessation Programme
Distance learning
This training course will enable you to practice as a ‘ProQuit’ smoking cessation practitioner. It will teach qualified hypnotherapists the elements needed to deliver this 6 week programme to your clients.
Help for stopping smoking is one of the most common issues that clients approach a hypnotherapist. Many programmes involve one or two sessions, although there is evidence to suggest that most people benefit from thorough preparation and ongoing support in order to remain a non-smoker Ref. Models of delivery for stop smoking services, Public Health England, 2017
The ‘ProQuit’ programme includes the following elements;
A comprehensive assessment of the clients smoking history, habits and behaviours (printable forms included)
Establishing readiness to quit using the Stages of Change model
The use of NLP and CBT techniques to improve the client’s motivation and self-confidence to quit
The use of hypnotherapy scripts, which can be individually tailored to the client’s needs
Relapse prevention
Ongoing reinforcement of motivation and goals.
The ‘ProQuit’ programme can be delivered in an individual or group sessions, however there is more opportunity to individualise the scripts in a one-to-one session.The programme can also be delivered both online or face to face.
This course includes an assessment and certificate on successful completion.
CPD 6 hours

International College of Clinical Hypnosis Practitioner

Smoking Cessation Online Master Class
Distance learning
This distance learning online delivered master class includes every aspect of hypnotherapeutic smoking cessation. It includes live video of the classroom teaching sessions and also real live client treatment sessions, along with all course notes and scripts.
Smoking cessation through hypnotherapeutic approaches are applied to the habitual behaviours and the conditioned responses, in addition to the individual's beliefs associated with smoking. This is directed at both conscious and unconscious levels of processing and memory. The hypnotherapist will engage with a client at a conscious level when discussing a person's smoking habits and their desired goal to become a non smoker. Then through trance work reinforce the conscious engagement and reprogramme the conditioned responses, behaviours and beliefs at an unconscious level, where effective change takes
place. With a highly motivated person this change can be achieved within a 45 minute trance session, which no other form or approach to smoking cessation can ever achieve.
Hypnotherapy approaches treat the conditioned responses and not the nicotine addiction.
Both hypnotherapists and ex-smokers who have used hypnotherapy will provide first hand evidence of its effectiveness and success. The difficulty with hypnotherapy for smoking cessation is that there are no large scale research studies or concrete evidence to support the claims made by both hypnotherapists and those who have become non smokers through hypnotherapy. In addition, the subjective nature of hypnotherapy application further complicates data collection, as there are a number of different approaches that a hypnotherapist can use to treat a smoker. There are no standard evidenced based
hypnotherapeutic treatment protocols for smoking cessation that can demonstrate its efficacy of use. Nor can claimed success rates be independently verified. The treatment approach presented by the ICCHP is based on therapeutic processes that have demonstrated high levels of successful outcomes for smoking cessation. The success of this approach and these processes is dependent on the ability of the hypnotherapist to correctly assess the presenting smoker's level of motivation, gather comprehensive
information about the smoker's current and historical smoking habits and beliefs, obtain a
comprehensive understanding of the smoker's motivation and desire to become a non smoker (goals, benefits, etc.) and to apply and interweave this information into the delivery of the therapeutic processes.
