At the Center for Mind-Body Psychotherapy & Hypnosis with offices located in Newburyport, MA and Westford, MA we have helped many people stop smoking for good…never to pick up another cigarette. We use an advanced hypnotherapeutic process in combination with other energy therapies to reduce cravings and ultimately eliminate any desire to smoke. We have had great success with this process boasting almost a 90% success rate with our clients, who have stopped smoking without withdrawals, cravings or weight gain.
At the Center for Mind-Body Psychotherapy we offer two different services for smokers who want to stop smoking. The service that is best for you depends on how long you have smoked and how successful you have been in the past trying to stop smoking.
- Our Stop Smoking Now program is recommended if you have been smoking for less than 10 years and have successfully quit in the past but have just had difficulty remaining smoke-free. It consists of two 1 ½ hour sessions scheduled 3 to 5 days apart.
- Our 5 Session Therapeutic program is appropriate if you have been smoking for more than 15 years or have had difficulty quitting in the past. If you have tried to quit many times before but every time you tried to quit it was too stressful, emotional or upsetting, then this program is for you. We schedule the first two appointments about 2-5 days apart and subsequent sessions are then scheduled approximately a week apart. It will take approximately 5 sessions to complete the program.
Just imagine how great you’ll feel taking deep, healthy breaths and knowing full well that you are a non-smoker.
All sessions are one-on-one and last between 1 hour and 1 ½ hours. We require that you make a minimum of two appointments, three to seven days apart. Most people will either stop smoking or cut back to only one or two cigarettes a day after the first session. The next session will usually be ten times more powerful and effective than the first session. Subsequent sessions will then work to make non-smoking a complete lifestyle change.
We look forward to helping you create a healthier and happier life!

Here is a brief review of some of the research evidence on the effectiveness of hypnosis to Stop Smoking:
90.6% Success Rate for Smoking Cessation Using Hypnosis
Of 43 consecutive patients undergoing this treatment protocol, 39 reported remaining abstinent from tobacco use at follow-up (6 months to 3 years post-treatment). This represents a 90.6% success rate using hypnosis.
University of Washington School of Medicine, Depts. of Anesthesiology and Rehabilitation Medicine, Int J Clin Exp Hypn. 2001 Jul;49(3):257-66. Barber J.
87% Reported Abstinence From Tobacco Use With Hypnosis
A field study of 93 male and 93 female CMHC outpatients examined the facilitation of smoking cessation by using hypnosis. At 3-month follow-up, 86% of the men and 87% of the women reported continued abstinence from the use of tobacco using hypnosis.

81% Reported They Had Stopped Smoking After Hypnosis
Thirty smokers enrolled in an HMO were referred by their primary physician for treatment. Twenty-one patients returned after an initial consultation and received hypnosis for smoking cessation. At the end of treatment, 81% of those patients reported that they had stopped smoking, and 48% reported abstinence at 12 months post-treatment.

Hypnosis Patients Twice As Likely To Remain Smoke-Free After Two Years
Study of 71 smokers showed that after a two-year follow up, patients that quit with hypnosis were twice as likely to remain smoke-free than those who quit on their own.

Hypnosis More Effective Than Drug Interventions For Smoking Cessation
Group hypnosis sessions, evaluated at a less effective success rate (22% success) than individualized hypnosis sessions. However, group hypnosis sessions were still demonstrated here as being more effective than drug interventions.

Hypnosis Most Effective Says Largest Study Ever: 3 Times as Effective as Patch and 15 Times as Effective as Willpower.
Hypnosis is the most effective way of giving up smoking, according to the largest ever scientific comparison of ways of breaking the habit. A meta-analysis, statistically combining results of more than 600 studies of 72,000 people from America and Europe to compare various methods of quitting. On average, hypnosis was over three times as effective as nicotine replacement methods and 15 times as effective as trying to quit alone.

Here Are Just A Few Testimonials For The Stop Smoking Programs At The Center For Mind-Body Psychotherapy (Used By Permission)*
I recently contacted Darwin to let him know that I am still a non-smoker and to refer a friend of mine to see him to Stop Smoking. I saw Darwin for just 2 sessions 5 years ago, and am proud to say I haven’t touched a cigarette since. I am still amazed at how easy it was and that to this day I still have no desire for a cigarette. I am very thankful. Thank you, Darwin.
---Christine Sylvester Norwich, CT*
I have now been smoke free for almost 6 months and it is all thanks to Darwin and his hypnosis. Thank you, Darwin. I couldn’t have done it without you.
---S.T. Brattleboro, VT*
I came to see Darwin to quit smoking but I was not fully ready to let go of them. I was ambivalent in that I loved them but hated the addiction (and the cost!). I smoked my last cigarette as I drove to the appointment and here it is 83 days later and I am still cigarette free. I couldn't be happier with the results and moreover, I feel as though I am not even vulnerable to starting again simply by being exposed to other smokers. It is Darwin's hypnosis technique that has made it possible for me to quit and not be tempted. I won't say that cravings don't occur from time to time but it is easier to move beyond them than in any past attempts to quit. Thank you Darwin!
---Joe Simcox Amesbury, MA*
I came to see Darwin to stop smoking. I have smoked for many years and decided it was time to quit. I had 4 sessions with Darwin and was very happy with how well it worked. It has been 2 months since I last saw Darwin and I am happy to say that I still haven't had a cigarette.
---B.G. Haverhill, MA*
My biggest concern about coming for smoking cessation was that I was going to gain weight if I stopped smoking. Darwin reassured me that the session would help to make sure that I didn’t trade the cigarettes for food. I am pleased to say that I have been a non-smoker for over 8 months now and haven’t gained any extra weight. I am so pleased with the results, and I would highly recommend Darwin to anyone who wants to quit smoking.
---Jennifer Stables –White Plains, NY*
I am so excited that I haven’t had a cigarette since May 15th. I really didn’t think it was going to work, but it did. I have already given your number to at least ten other people who want to quit. Thank you.
---H. H. Concord, MA*
It has been a whole year since Darwin helped me to quit smoking with hypnosis. It was absolutely amazing. I smoked ten years and I tried all the other methods to quit. Hypnotherapy was the one that finally worked. I couldn't have quit without Darwin's help. Hypnosis makes quitting smoking so much easier. I am so happy that I will never smoke again.
---M.K. Portland, ME*
The hypnosis session was easy and relaxing. After many years of trying to quit with lots of different products, like nicotine gum and the patch, I found this to be the easiest way to quit by far. I had no cravings like I had other times I tried to quit. It was really easy. Thanks, Darwin.
---T. A. Boston, MA*
I smoked for over 40 years and tried many different times and ways to stop smoking. I was skeptical about trying hypnosis but after coming to the Center for Mind-Body Psychotherapy I found that hypnosis worked well for me. After the first session, I went from smoking over a pack a day to just a few cigarettes a day. After going through the 5 session program, I haven't smoked another cigarette and that was over 6 months ago. Thanks so much!
---F.P. Cambridge, MA*
Darwin was very professional, helpful, and quickly put me at ease. I have not smoked since our session (3 weeks ago), and I just wish I had consulted Darwin earlier. I am deeply grateful.
---M. N. Marblehead, MA*
I was committed to make this work when I came in to see Darwin, and he made it so easy. I was a little concerned how I would be with friends and family who still smoke but have had no problem with wanting a cigarette. I haven’t smoked since, and I haven’t wanted to. I still have an occasional thought about smoking but I have found it easy to resist. It’s wonderful to be free of that old disgusting habit.
---Peter Conway Westborough, MA*
What a great experience! I am still smoke free and it has been over a year. I whole heartedly recommend Darwin and the Center for Mind-Body Psychotherapy to anyone who wants to quit smoking.
---T.C. Portsmouth, NH*
I have been a non-smoker now for 124 days and am very thankful to you, Darwin. Thanks again for all of your help.
---J. W. Natick, MA*
I came to get help from Darwin to Stop Smoking because I wanted to do this for my kids. They were always worried about me and whether I was going to die early from smoking. I haven’t smoked for almost 10 months and feel so proud to know I am a role model for my kids and can be there for them in the future.
---Shelia Adams Exeter, NH*
I smoked for 46 years and thought I would never be able to quit. I had tried many times before with little to no success. I still find it amazing that I am the same person that I was but now I am a non-smoker and will remain a non-smoker for the rest of my life. Now when I smell others that smoke, I can’t believe I used to smell like that. I am so happy to be FREE!!
---R. J. Charlotte, NC*
The 5 session program was just what I needed. I knew that I really needed to get at the emotions that were causing me to smoke even when I didn’t want to and Darwin was wonderful at helping me to do that. He was also very accommodating at doing double sessions for me because I was coming from so far away.
---E. L. West Kingston, RI*
I knew I could not give up smoking without this kind of therapy. I knew that I needed to change my subconscious mind and that is exactly what Darwin helped me to do. I feel great being a non-smoker. I would recommend Darwin to anyone who wants to stop smoking.
---C. W. Norwell, MA*
