Clinical Hypnosis

Stop smoking or vaping with Hypnotherapy

I help my clients effectively stop smoking or vaping with the help of hypnosis.

Most clients who visit EcoMindz have tried several ways to stop smoking like cold turkey, nicotine patches, medications, and more.  When you try you are using willpower and the conscious part of your mind.

With Hypnotherapy we can go much deeper, into your subconscious mind, which drives 95% of your life.  We also instill new coping strategies because from experience we have seen that smoking may have become a coping strategy.  It may not have started this way, as some started smoking cigarettes at school age and the reasons were perhaps that it was the cool thing to do but over the years this may have shifted to an association of relaxation.

See, for some, the brain has associated vaping or more so cigarettes with being social or relaxing so we think it relaxes but it does not. With vaping, it has become a habit, almost like an extra limb to carry around and you may feel you have absolutely no control over it.

I, Genine Raats, founder and Clinical Hypnotherapist used to be a smoker too and have successfully stopped with the help of Hypnosis.

Our clients say that they just do not feel like or have any cravings after Hypnotherapy.  The thought of smoking/vaping stays a little longer as this is a neural pathway and habit built over years for some. When trying your own willpower it is the craving that really tips one over to just have another vape/cigarette, is it not?!

Our clients become non-smokers in as little as one session and can come up to 5 sessions especially if anxiety and stress were typical drivers when smoking has become a coping strategy.

Take back control, let’s access the power of your subconscious mind!

Genine is an absolute wonder. I went in for anxiety, expecting it to take a few sessions for the anxiety to ebb away. Literally the day after my first session I felt that my anxiety was tame compared to the beast it had been. I highly recommend Genine. She really cares about your health and about your mental health. She wants to see you walk out less burdened. I’m going to attend more sessions down the line, but I only needed 4 to feel like o could breathe again.

During one of the toughest periods of my life, I turned to hypnotherapy to help manage my anxiety and regain control of my thoughts. Working with Genine was nothing short of life-changing. Her expertise and guidance were instrumental in helping me navigate through challenges I never thought I'd overcome.

Genine is professional and approachable. I had misconceptions of what clinical hypnotherapy was. I have been pleased with the results, feeling a shift in my mindset and long held and stubborn programming. I would recommend.

25 years of drinking and bad life choices altered in a couple of sessions ! Genine really is a wonderful, understanding and kind human being. She sat me down we discussed what I had been going through and she eased my mind about worrying if I was going to open myself to hypnotherapy. I’ve been sober 36 days something I didn’t think was possible. My relationships with my wife my young daughter my work is amazing. Thank you so much again Genine.

High School can be extremely tough on kids, and like most teenagers, my daughter was dealing with procrastination. Thanks to Genine, things changed from the first session! My daughter is now more optimistic and motivated to complete her tasks on time without feeling burnt out. I wholeheartedly recommend Ecomindz for helping calm the busy minds of adolescents.

I came to EcoMindz anxious, scattered and desperately looking for help to deal with years of anxiety. Genine was kind, approachable and very supportive of my goals. After four sessions with her I can honestly say I've made great progress with regaining self-belief and confidence. I am very grateful for the work she did with me and would highly recommend EcoMindz to friends and family.

Heard about hypno, but at first he was a little hesitant. researched it and came across Genines page. I came here for insomnia and anxiousness. Genine was incredibly kind, polite, and supportive. We scheduled a total of 4 sessions, and we gradually saw significant progress. I can now fall asleep with ease and have a lot of anxiousness under control. If you're dealing with a problem comparable to mine, I highly advise her.
