Stop Smoking Hypnotherapy
Stop Smoking? Considering Nicotine Therapy e.g. Patches, Nicotine Gum etc.?
Stop Smoking with Hypnotherapy "the most effective way to give up smoking"
Hypnotherapy, the therapeutic application of hypnosis, has been recognised as a method to aid smoking cessation for many years. Even as far back as October 1992, following a research study at the University of Iowa, New Scientist magazine reported hypnosis as "the most effective way of giving up smoking"( New Scientist vol 136 issue 1845 - 31 October 92, page 6).
Hypnosis - The Most Effective Way to Stop Smoking - New Scientist
To find the most effective way to stop smoking, researchers from the University of Iowa conducted a meta-analysis, combining the results of more than 600 studies totaling nearly 72,000 people from Europe and America.
The results, which were published in the Journal of Applied Psychology, included 48 studies of hypnosis covering 600 smokers, which clearly showed that hypnosis was the most effective treatment and was THREE TIMES more likely to help the client stop smoking than other approaches tested.
Weight Loss / Management
Research on Hypnosis to Lose Weight, currently being updated
Hypnosis Over 30 Times as Effective for Weight Loss
Investigated the effects of hypnosis in weight loss for 60 females, at least 20% overweight. Treatment included group hypnosis with metaphors for ego- strengthening, decision making and motivation, ideomotor exploration in individual hypnosis, and group hypnosis with maintenance suggestions. Hypnosis was more effective than a control group 17lbs vs. 0.5 lbs on follow-up.

2 Years Later Hypnosis Subjects Continued To Lose Significant Weight
109 people completed a behavioral treatment for weight management either with or without the addition of hypnosis. At the end of the 9-week program, both interventions resulted in significant weight reduction. At 8-month and 2-year follow-ups, the hypnosis subjects were found to have continued to lose significant weight, while those in the behavioral-treatment-only group showed little further change.

Hypnosis Subjects Lost More Weight Than 90% of Others and Kept it Off
Researchers analyzed 18 studies comparing a cognitive behavioral therapy, such as relaxation training, guided imagery, self monitoring or goal setting with the same therapy supplemented by hypnosis.
Those who received the hypnosis lost more weight than 90 percent of the non hypnosis, and maintained the weight loss two years after treatment ended.

Sports Hypnosis (aka Zoneology)
Why Sports/Fitness Zoneology? by Scott Burke MBAThH (Hons), MWFHyp (Hons)
IS IT JUST FOR FITNESS ENTHUSIASTS OR SERIOUS SPORTS PEOPLE?
Absolutely not. My professional skills can be utilised by each and everybody. Whether it be to play a particular sport better, or to get in shape, I will help you achieve your goals.
To often "specialists" only work with the "big names". I put it to you that only a TRUE coach, such as myself, should work with everyone without prejudice. Why? Simply because as a coach I can gain valuable experience and knowledge from the people I work with. Indeed I have stated to many clients that not only will my program help them, the success patterns created within their program (which the client is involved in creating) will help future clients with their goals. Effectively the client is given the sense that they too are contributing not only to their own development towards excellence, but their unique feedback from the program, will enrich the lives of others.
SO, WHAT IS "ZONEOLOGY?"
Zoneology is a combination of some of the most powerful mind enhancing tools available today. I combine conventional hypnosis (which allows direct communication to the subconscious, the part of ones' mind that controls action and emotion), psychology, infrasound and NLP. There are no pills, herbs, or any other "dependant" systems. I utilise the natural power of your mind, which you already possess, with no need to sign up to hundreds of dollars of "potions" and "herbs" each and every month.
WHY SHOULD A SPORTS PERSON USE ZONEOLOGY?
I can tell you for a fact that many, many sports people will spend a small fortune on books, videos, lessons etc., BUT the "game" is not won on the playing area, it is won in the mind. Because of this, my Sports Zoneology Program (a.k.a. The Hypno-Mind Power Program) is an absolute must for ANYONE who is serious about their sport and/or their fitness.
Let me state that by doing so, you have nothing to lose. NO-ONE I have ever worked with, in ANY sport, has seen their performance stay the same, they have ALWAYS improved.
Phobias and Fears
(eg Flying, Spiders, Needles, Bridges, Water, Confined Spaces, Public Speaking etc.)
The number of phobias and fears I could mention would easily fill a page. If you have an irrational fear I think one fact you will agree on is that you were not born with it, so one could suggest that by having a psychological response to X, then hypnosis should be able to help with removing the fear as well. Perhaps the term "irrational fear" is a bit harsh in some cases. The problem is when the fear becomes more limiting to one's enjoyment of life. You might be surprised to hear that MANY of my customers have actually flown many times before and are not first time flyers, so it demonstrates how a phobia can be "learnt" over time. If you have a phobia or a fear that is imposing on your life, then please do get in touch and I would love to be able to help.
Alcohol / Excessive Drinking
Hypnotherapy to help with excess alcohol is sadly a growing request, however one must take their hat off for those who decide to take action to do something for themself, but in some cases, for others, such as family, friends and indeed work colleagues
Confidence inc Blushing,
Public Speaking etc.
Confidence issues is a broad area, which can include public speaking, blushing, self image, lack of ambition or fulfillment, relationships including shyness etc.
