Local Hypnotherapist Provides Support For “Stoptober” Campaign

A local hypnotherapist, Ken Tait, is urging the public to look for practitioners registered with the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) if they want to use hypnotherapy to help them give up smoking during the NHS’s Stoptober campaign this October. 

Many people use hypnotherapy to provide extra help when giving up smoking. The Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) is the UK regulator for complementary therapists, which was set up with government funding and support.

Ken Tait, who is a qualified hypnotherapist covering Beckenham and other towns in the Bromley borough and surrounding areas, says: “Hypnotherapy is often used to help clients achieve the behavioural change needed to stop smoking but it’s so important the public use someone who knows what they are doing.”

Registered with the CNHC himself, Ken continues: As someone who quit smoking over 30 years ago, I understand the emotions and stresses of quitting smoking and how hard it can be without any support. Hypnotherapy can really help you overcome these and quit smoking safely, painlessly and for good.

“With hypnotherapy, there are no bad side effects and there’s no need for substitutes such as e-cigarettes, or nicotine replacement patches or gum. Many people can even successfully quit within one hypnotherapy session.”

Hypnotherapy is one of 15 therapies registered by the CNHC. There are around 5,700 practitioners on the register and members of the public can search the CNHC register to find practitioners in their local area. More than 350,000 searches have been carried out since the register first opened in 2009. Visit the CNHC website for a list of registered practitioners
