This is one of the first books written for Hypnotherapy and NLP Practitioners that is devoted entirely to the use of these techniques in enabling smokers to quit. Written by a Harley Street hypnotherapist it combines Ericksonian hypnotherapy and NLP with techniques from cognitive therapy, Yoga and stress management, dealing with every possible situation in smoking cessation.

HYPNOSIS FOR SMOKING CESSATION – An NLP and Hypnotherapy Practitioner’s Manual

Having done a few sessions of hypnosis for smoking cessation I approached this book with a degree of scepticism, did we really need a manual purely for smoking cessation?
So who is this book for? Certainly for the newly qualified or curious person who want to use hypnosis for smoking cessation, certainly for anyone who is interested in making a living specialising in smoking cessation. However it offers more, for anyone using hypnosis or NLP in other ways there is some great information and techniques on offer.
Once over my initial reluctance I started to warm to this book. It is clear and concise, with an abundance of detail and processes to deal with virtually any situation and any type of client resistance.
It is written in an easy readable style, but unlike many of this type of book works hard to avoid repetition. Well structured, it takes you through the process step by step in a personable way. There are check lists and tips for both one to one and group coaching and even for corporate events, yet despite its clinical thoroughness Botsford constantly reminds us to work at our skills and to focus on the client. Whilst he offers many useful scripts and details he stresses the need to develop them for specific clients and individual circumstances.

This book appears to be a one size fit all, but it is all about giving you the tools and understanding to deliver smoking cessation for anyone, in any situation. I personally got far more than I expected and found a number of anecdotes and lessons that I can use in other completely different ways.
I strongly recommend this book if you have a need to offer smoking cessation and if you just want to have the competent skills it offers.
