Stop smoking by harnessing the power of hypnosis. First, we will identify the emotions, thoughts and circumstances that trigger your urge to smoke. Once the triggers are identified, we’ll work together to replace the old behavior with a new, healthy behavior. Releasing the triggers eases the struggle by making choices more instinctual. Rather than having to muster up pure, brute willpower to say no, we feel a natural inclination to quit smoking instead.
Research finds that hypnotherapy can be more effective than other smoking cessation modalities. The North Shore Medical Center in Salem, Massachusetts researched four smoking cessation therapy types (1) hypnotherapy; (2) nicotine replacement therapy; (c) nicotine replacement therapy plus hypnotherapy; and (d) quitting “cold turkey.” The study found that smokers who received just one hypnotherapy session were more likely to quit than smokers who used other methods.

Reduce stress and stop smoking
I was able to attend a smoking cessation program during the COVID-19 crisis. Let's just say NOT an easy time to quit smoking after decades of smoking! I am so thankful to say that with the live video sessions and the support group I am finally a non-smoker!! I am so thankful to Ellen and Capstone Hypnosis for being able to break free and live a life I didn't think would be possible for me.
I had my last cigarette 4.5 weeks ago thanks to the help of Ellen Jolley. I was smoking 15+ on a regular day, without any parties, social events, or stressful situations. When she started working with me I was pretty sceptical that it would work, but I wanted to give it a try anyway. As a previous smoker herself, she knows first hand how hard it is, how your mind and body will feel while quitting, how social situations and other things can be triggering, and how it feels to come out the other side as a non-smoker.
Every week Ellen would ask me how I was doing, and she often got more information than she probably needed to hear! She is a great listener though and always made me feel as though I could be open and honest with her, even if what I had to say didn’t specifically have anything to do with smoking cessation.
She tailored our sessions to incorporate help and reassurance with things that I specifically struggled with, or situations that were triggers for me. She was very patient with me and worked with me at my own pace; I have a feeling I went much slower than some. She listened to my concerns from day one, and worked with me on a plan that fit what I felt was realistic for me, while also pushing me to try reaching some uncomfortable goals. Even though there were times that I didn’t meet my goal for the week, she never judged me or made me feel like I couldn’t succeed. She was always very encouraging, and made me feel like it was actually possible to quit, even though most of the time I didn’t see how it was going to happen realistically.
If anyone wants to quit smoking but needs some help doing so, I highly recommend working with Ellen. She understands the struggle, will be open and honest with you about it, will work with you at your pace while also helping you push yourself, and will be one of your biggest supporters through this tough, but life changing situation. It isn’t easy, and it isn’t “fun”, but it is worth it.
