A key benefit of an in-person program is the ability for the hypnotherapist to customize and personalize the hypnosis session based on the specific needs of the client. Hypnoetic ensures a customized approach through the inclusion of an in-depth questionnaire that determines your individual learning style prior to beginning the program and also personalizes the program through including built in check points to determine your readiness for change as well as flexibility that enables you to move through the program at a pace that is right for you.

Hypnoetic provides both repetition and consistency through following the 90-day rule as described in the welcome videos.
Are headphones required to listen to the self-hypnosis sessions or can I listen on speakers?

Will I experience withdrawal symptoms?
Most of what people experience when they become smoke free is mental, not physical. For the average smoker (a pack a day), the nicotine leaves the body within in 72 hours with minimal and temporary withdrawal effects. What is left is a mental experience of possible agitation, upset and feelings of deprivation. This why hypnosis is so effective as it re-directs the mind to focus in a positive way, removing the feelings of deprivation and agitation.
Will I gain weight?
