A few months ago, I couldn’t have one drink without wanting a cigarette. I found James online and I couldn’t be happier with the experience. It was an incredible session that has stopped me from smoking and made me realise I want better for my health overall.

During my sessions, James listened to me and made me feel positive and empowered. At first I was a little apprehensive, however I quickly became calm and relaxed because of how James spoke and explained everything. Since our session, I have been able to enjoy activities that I have put off for well over 10 years!

The strength of hypnosis enabled me to start endurance training, where this year I have completed two Olympic distance triathlons, a half Ironman, a full Ironman, and just recently, a category 5 Ultra-marathon! I have also referred four friends on to James and am happy to advise that all have successfully stopped smoking.

Stop Smoking Hypnotherapy in London, Online and in Hampshire

Hello, I’m James Mallinson and I’d like to help you stop smoking.

I know that stopping smoking is hard. No – make that really hard. When you’ve been a smoker for a while – possibly for many years now – quitting smoking, especially on your own, is very difficult.

In the UK today, there are 6.4 million smokers. Around 60% of them say they want to quit. According to the Royal Society for Public Health, quitting is by far the hardest new year’s resolution to keep.

I’m here to tell you that there is a solution you perhaps haven’t tried yet that has a terrific success rate. Hypnotherapy for smoking is something I’ve used to help hundreds of people.

You’ve probably already tried quitting a few times. There may have been New Year’s Resolutions about quitting smoking. About tearing up your last cigarette and throwing it in the bin. Maybe you had some success with nicotine replacement therapy such as nicotine patches. Or you have even tried vaping.

Maybe you didn’t…

So your smoking habits continue – and stopping smoking seems permanently out of reach.

Worse, you’re probably deeply concerned about serious health conditions that can arise out of a cigarette addiction. Maybe your doctor has told you of the many benefits that come when people quit smoking – but they’ve been unable to help you to quit.

So maybe it’s time to try a completely different approach to quitting smoking. Maybe it’s time to try hypnotherapy to stop smoking – which sets out to shift the way you see your habit and turn it from something you feel you want/need to do to something that you don’t.

I look forward to helping you be calmer and more relaxed.

Quitting smoking with hypnotherapy

Stopping is within most people’s grasp when they try clinical hypnosis for smoking. I know, because I have successfully helped numerous people to give up their smoking habit and become ex-smokers and live a healthier life. I trained for 2,000 hours to become a clinical hypnotherapist, and have now conducted more than 5,000 sessions.

If you want to give up the cigarettes once and for all, I offer online stop smoking hypnotherapy sessions, or we can meet at my London hypnotherapy practice instead. I also have an office in Winchester if that’s more convenient. Whether you prefer online hypnosis or face-to-face, the treatment is equally effective.

If you’d like me to help you quit smoking, I’m currently offering all new clients 10% off my standard fees to help with the cost of living crisis. Cigarette smoking really can become a thing of the past for many people, and right now with the cost of cigarettes at a record high, there’s never been a more compelling time to quit.

To find out if stop smoking hypnotherapy is for you and you like the idea of becoming a non-smoker, I offer a FREE consultation lasting 20 minutes so that you can decide if this is right choice for you.

When you get in touch, I’ll also send you a free one-hour relaxation download that I used to sell for £17.99. It might just help the next time you’re feeling stressed out and reaching for the cigarette pack.

I look forward to helping you to quit smoking.

Why people struggle to quit

Before we get to the nitty-gritty of what causes people to reach for the cigarettes, here are some pretty sobering statistics showing what you could save if you quit smoking today.

How much you will save
10 a day Savings made 20 a day
£9 Daily £17
£60 Weekly £119
£259 Monthly £517
£1,552 6 months £3,105
£3,105 12 months £6,210
£31,049 10 years £62,098
£62,098 20 years £124,197

However, if you invested that same amount of money over 20 years, and applied compound interest at 5%, you’d make yourself £250,000.

If these figures aren’t enough to make you think twice, perhaps the long-term health problems associated with smoking will. As well as the countless cancers it can cause (lung cancer being the most common), smoking can also lead to numerous other serious medical issues – which you already know.

The problem is that even the above statistics are often not enough for people to quit smoking because their smoking habit has developed over many years. Much as they may want to quit cigarettes, they simply can’t imagine life without them.

Understanding the challenges of quitting

Quitting smoking using many traditional methods comes with a number of challenges.

These include:

1/ Your emotional triggers. Out of habit when stressed or angry, reaching for a cigarette provides a sense of calm.

2/ Ingrained behaviours. A smoke on the walk to walk or first thing in the morning can be hard to let go of.

3/ Coping mechanisms. Many people believe that instant access to a cigarette when they need it helps them to cope better.

Then there is the social aspect, too. Perhaps you view smoking in the same way you do drinking: the two are combined in your mind as the perfect way to unwind. Or maybe just a smoking break at work is a valuable escape for you.

Many quitting methods fall flat because they cannot address the above concerns. They fail to stop the inner voice that tells you what pleasure and comfort you get from smoking.

Hypnotherapy takes a different approach. It is designed to change the way you think about cigarettes. The basic idea is to stop them from being something you want.

How hypnosis can help you

How hypnosis can help you

By dramatically dialling down your 'love' of smoking, hypnotherapy helps you to discover the benefits of becoming a non-smoker instead.

Additionally, using hypnotherapy to quit is:

  • A targeted intervention that changes how you see cigarettes. This compares favourably with a difficult, physical withdrawal.
  • Not a short-term fix – it is designed to create sustainable, lasting change.
  • Non-invasive – so there's no pain or chemicals.
  • A key part of any overall wellbeing goals you have, and can help improve other aspects of your life – as well as building resilience and empowerment.
What to expect during a session

After booking your smoking hypnotherapy appointment, we ask you to do some preparatory work before seeing you. This is very important because this information helps us tailor your session for you. Additionally, at an unconscious level, it’s a commitment to yourself that you really do want to stop smoking.

This work consists of answering some questions about your smoking habit, along with any relevant history, thoughts and beliefs that you may have. You’ll also keep a log for a few days that tracks when you smoke, who you’re with and about how you feel when you smoke each cigarette.

Then, when we meet online or in person, we go through your answers and using clinical hypnotherapy and NLP, we can begin to help you ‘unlearn’ your habit.

Here’s how we tackle all aspects of your habit head-on. We’ll:

  • Help you to overcome compulsions and cravings.
  • Teach you how to manage those emotional triggers.
  • Deal with all of those circumstances that prompt you to smoke or vape – both now or in the future.
  • Change that internal voice that is giving you permission to smoke.

We may need to resolve any internal conflicts you may have, such as ‘part of me likes smoking/part of me hates it’. Plus we can deal with any underlying beliefs you may have about either your ability to stop, or beliefs you may have such as smoking relaxes you.

From there you’ll experience very relaxing and powerful clinical hypnosis to help you make the change.

And it really is possible. Imagine a world without cigarette smoke. Without feeling like you were damaging your body in unimaginable ways. And think of the potential savings! With smoking hypnosis, your lifelong habit could be just a few hours away from being broken.

I look forward to helping you to try and become a non-smoker.

I give my experience of hypnotherapy with James 10/10

Dame Kelly Holmes

What happens during a session of hypnotherapy for smoking?

Before your actual session, you’ll fill in a detailed questionnaire that will help me understand your history and patterns of smoking. This allows me to tailor your treatment plan and ensures that the time you spend with me is used as effectively as possible.

Over the course of your 90-minute session, you will feel calm and in control, and I’ll use a combination of the most effective modern and classic hypnotherapeutic tools and techniques.

How to book your hypnotherapy session

Hopefully, you now feel reassured about the hypnotherapy process – and feel ready to take the next step to become a non-smoker. Remember that in most cases, you’ll need only a single session or a couple of sessions.

Each of these will be 90-minutes long. This means we achieve so much more than you can in the traditional 50-minute ‘therapy hour’ that most therapists provide.

A special offer from my hypnotherapy practice to you

As part of my ‘Cost of Living Crisis’ promotion, I’m reducing my fees by 10% to only £390 + VAT per session.  I have very limited availability and if you’d like to know more about how I may be able to help you, then do get in touch now.

I will put 100% effort into working with you and the techniques that I use are very powerful. As with all therapy types, success varies from client to client and there can be no guarantees. In fact, I’d recommend running a mile from a hypnotherapist who says they offer a guarantee.

Why choose me as your hypnotherapist

I became a hypnotherapist because of a life-changing hypnotherapy session of my own in 2006. This helped me to re-find myself and discover new hope. So, whatever you’re feeling now, I’ve been in a similar place.
Experience
I am an expert at using hypnotherapy to help people quit smoking and have completed more than 5,000 sessions of hypnotherapy. This means that you will be in safe and capable hands.
Chemistry
I only work with clients that I believe I can help, want to help and have a good chemistry with. This is incredibly important, as it means your therapy is more likely to be effective.
Speed
Most clients need just two sessions to see a significant improvement. This is quicker than virtually any other therapist.
Reassurance
I am one of the UK’s most reviewed therapists. More than 90% of clients give me a 5-star review. You can read here what clients say about me.
Trust
Before I saw my very first client more than a decade ago, I had completed more than 1,000 hours of training. Unfortunately, anyone can call themselves a therapist without any training. Do not put your mental health in the hands of amateurs.

I have had 2 sessions with James now to help me with a fear of the dentist. I have left both sessions feeling very calm, with new techniques to use when faced with a dental appointment. During the first session I was already talking about past experiences at the dentist with a newfound calmness. After the second session, I walked straight to the dentist to make an appointment (a massive achievement for those who know me)! James was incredibly approachable and guided me through the whole process with kindness. His straight-to-the-point yet calm and compassionate attitude was exactly what I needed. You can definitely tell James loves what he does! I would highly recommend James to anyone who wants to try to conquer a phobia.

I’m so pleased I found James; not only has he helped me where other therapies failed, I’ve had focused sessions to manage a life-changing health diagnosis and this has made a huge difference to my wellbeing. James is attentive throughout each session. I feel as though he cares about people he works with and at times he appropriately uses humour which I like, as it helps me to feel at ease. Be prepared to put some of your own work in, it helps to be honest and open prior to the therapy and provide as much information as you can to support the sessions.

I cannot recommend James highly enough. I had a phobia that was severely impacting my life, from the age of 7 to 43. I had tried CBT and psychotherapy over the years, both helped in small ways but the dreaded phobia was always there, making me miserable, anxious and depressed. I had reached a bad place and my friend sent me James’ website. I immediately signed up for the free consultation. James called me and instantly put me at ease. He explained what the treatment would entail, not the hypnotherapy you see on the TV or as drunken entertainment in Tenerife! I completed my questionnaire and waited for my appointment. James has a great way about him, and despite being nervous, he made me laugh and explained each technique clearly as we were doing them. The session was not rushed and all the methods used were easy to follow and actually really pleasant. I am so happy to say that I am now phobia free (cant quite believe it) and I have James to thank! This was the best money I have EVER spent. I only needed one session, despite me asking and thinking I might need more – James was very clear, only one was required. James has checked in on me since our session, the client care is superb! My advice: don’t suffer, don’t wait, book in with James.

After struggling with anxiety issues stemming from burnout, James was recommended to me. From my first enquiry to the completion of therapy a few weeks later, it was a really positive experience. James was throughly professional throughout and took time to explain the rationale and expected outcomes of his approach. Most importantly, it has worked for me. Would thoroughly recommend anyone considering Fix My Mind to go ahead and make the investment in yourself.

A real life changing experience. James took the time to understand the challenges I was facing with ICU PTSD and had a huge impact, I can highly recommend to anyone in similar circumstances.

James rescued me from a complete low in lockdown 1. I was really struggling to find help for severe anxiety and panic disorder. Most nhs mental health places were closed or had a huge waiting list. I was instantly drawn to fix my mind on line and after looking at it 3 times decided to call him. Its the best thing I ever did. I felt better from the very first session. I turned up with chronic anxiety and panic disorder. The relief to be able to live with peace of mind and go back into work without huge dred was a life changer. I will never be able to thank james enough. I completely trust him and his way of working is highly professional and works. He changed my life.

I struggled with public speaking for many years before meeting James. After only two sessions, I am a changed man. I am no longer consumed by anxiety at the thought of getting on stage; rather, I relish the prospect!

Working with James was transformative for me. In just two sessions, I saw significant emotional shifts and gained valuable techniques that I now use daily. His direct yet compassionate approach made our sessions enjoyable, and he took the time at the start of the process to really understand my issue and the history relating to it. Clearly, he’s dedicated to his clients’ success and to their ongoing emotional wellbeing. I highly recommend working with James, whether you’re new to therapy or have tried other methods in the past.

I had a fear of public speaking that was close to a phobia. I couldn’t imagine how hypnotism could help but a friend said I should try it. I found James online and gave it a go. To say it’s been transformational is an understatement! I now regularly speak in front of audiences and actually enjoy it! That adrenaline-based fear doesn’t kick in. James is a total genius!

Frequently Asked Questions

Find answers to your most common queries about smoking cessation hypnotherapy here.

If you have tried 'cold turkey', nicotine patches or other methods of stopping smoking, hypnotherapy offers an alternative. It works by rapidly 'rewiring' the mind so that it changes the way it reacts to certain things. As an example, it can stop the brain from craving a cigarette at certain times of the day.

Experience: I have now completed more than 5,000 hypnotherapy sessions with clients.

Approach: I am personable and focused, and I only want to work with people I wholeheartedly believe I can help.

Training: I have now completed more than 2,000 hours of training.

Results: I am highly results focused and want you to feel like you can move on from whatever is holding you back in the fewest possible sessions.

This depends on your background and what we have used in previous sessions, if applicable. As well as clinical hypnotherapy, the four main tools at my disposal are Havening, Time Line Therapy, NLP and TFT.

I have enjoyed considerable success with all of these, both individually and in various combinations.

Given the current cost of living crisis, I am offering 10% off my standard fee. A potentially life-changing 1-1 session with me today costs just £390 +VAT per 90-minute session (most hypnotherapists' sessions are only 50 minutes long).

There is no extra fee for my pre-prep work, such as my analysis of your pre-session briefing questionnaire.

Additionally, every new client benefits from a free 20-minute consultation by phone.

Booking is easy – please just fill in the contact form, or call me on freephone 0800 122 3073.
