Hypnotherapy for smoking cessation works by addressing the underlying reasons why your patients smoke. It addresses issues of emotional self-regulation, stress and anxiety, as well as habit formation. It teaches patients techniques to manage cravings and build belief, that they can become and remain a non-smoker.
Your patients can be supported by hypnotherapy as they gradually reduce their cigarette intake and then cease smoking altogether. After they stop, withdrawal symptoms can be managed by relaxation and relapse-prevention techniques.
The Finito program is a digital smoking cessation program, delivered via an app. It addresses the underlying reasons people smoke, helps them navigate cravings, and teaches them the skills to become, and remain, a non-smoker.
The program involves three weeks of daily hypnotherapy, breathing exercises, and psychoeducation to help patients reduce their cigarette intake and then stop smoking. Patients can then access ongoing support to confidently remain a non-smoker.
Finito was designed by Dr. Gary Elkins, Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience at Baylor University.

Finito is an evidence-based program developed by Dr. Gary Elkins. It addresses cravings and underlying smoking triggers via hypnotherapy.
On average it will take a smoker 30 or more attempts before successfully abstaining for one year or longer. Often this is because they are quitting ‘cold turkey’ without any support.
Over 1000 patients have tried Finito to manage their cravings and stop smoking naturally. Here are examples of people who are best suited to the program.
Opposed to NRT or medication.
