Local practitioner provides support for “Stoptober” Campaign

Press Release: September 19, 2015

A London based hypnotherapist 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.

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 that was set up with government funding and support.

Jakub Tencl 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.”

“It is possible to achieve successful result from one to 6 sessions during 6 weeks, and that depends on individual case.”

Jakub Tencl added that: “Hypnotherapy is one of 15 therapies registered by the CNHC. There are around 5,300 practitioners on the register and members of the public can search the CNHC register to find practitioners in their local area. More than 300,000 searches have been carried out since the register first opened in 2009.”
