Hi there, My name is Rita Smith and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for visiting my website. I am a full-time Professional  Hypnotherapist specialising in getting people to STOP SMOKING really easily in about  2 hours!! I am a Gastric Hypnoband Practitioner and am also trained in teaching people how to fine tune their mind enabling them to quit getting stressed.  I have had the pleasure of working with hundreds of people over the last 11 years change unwanted habits, behaviours and beliefs literally overnight. I am passionate about my work and I pride myself in my belief that EVERYONE can change their thinking and unhelpful behaviours when they know how too. I smoked for 35 years and when I was taught some simple psychological skills together with some hypnotherapy I just stopped smoking with no withdrawal symptoms or anxiety. It was an unbelievable experience and l knew I had to pass this knowledge on and help people to take back control of their lives.  You will be amazed  how quick and simple the process is!!!. I initially trained as a Hypnotherapist back in 2008 using powerful suggestions (whilst in a relaxed state of  mind) to re programme habits of thinking such as smoking, driving test nerves, IBS, presentations or phobias of flying, dentists,birds etc. Always wanting to learn more I then trained in analytical hypnotherapy and then continued my studies teaching people to change damaging beliefs to healthy new beliefs allowing people to Thrive. I then became a Hypnoband weight loss practitioner in 2010. I have studied forensic Hypnosis and worked with pain management.  Having beaten Cancer 3 years ago I am  determined to throw myself into helping others change their lives forever.  You are so much more powerful then you think..  Let me show you how to build some self belief in my fabulous PT mind training programme. Call me for a chat and I willl show you  how in just  a few short weekly  sessions!!.

Personal Training for your mind

Rita doesn’t like to use the term “mental health” as there is a lot of stigma attached to this statement.  Rita prefers to talk about “emotional Health”  which is more accurate when it comes to describing the way we feel. Rita says “It is reported that we have about 60,000 thoughts a day! Understanding how our mind works - knowing that our feelings and emotions  are driven by our thoughts in the first place is the key to controlling  our mind. How many times do we say that we feel out of control, or that we don’t understand  what’s going on in our mind.”  It is particularly evident when we experience major upheavals in our life through relationship problems illness, death, divorce or unemployment. This then leads to destructive thoughts which lead to unhelpful habits and behaviours creating a lack of confidence, self doubt, a low opinion of ourselves, social anxiety (feeling judged and taking everything personally) and generally just feeling helpless and powerless.   When we are not thinking right and worrying, we find that we are not sleeping or eating properly - maybe even drinking or smoking  too much. Relationships and work suffer and the problems just keep mounting.  I can teach you how to get off that rollercoaster in just about 8 - 10 hours. These sessions will be tailormade to you!!   It is unbelievably simple and fascinating and teaches you to take control of your life.  I will show you how not to create stress in the first place with easy fun filled lessons.  You will then have the  skills to have an amazing healthy happy life by making great choices.

Smoking Clients

Hi Rita"Thank you so much for helping me to stop smoking. It was so easy, I have not thought about smoking a cigarette since. I still get the thought that I use to have a cigarette but the thought disappears as quickly as it came. I am so relieved and happy and positive and I will be recommending you to anyone I know who wants to stop smoking. The thing that impressed me the most was how easy it was.

Thank you for giving me such a great gift."

Hello Rita

"Firstly I would like to wish you and your family every best wish for a happy and healthy 2011.Secondly I thought you would like to know that I have not had a cigarette since I last saw you on the 2nd December - another success for you!! and for me.  Surprisingly I have found it easy in some respects. I have no wish to smoke, am not tempted to buy any cigarettes and being with someone who smokes does not worry me.

My daughter is overjoyed and very supportive. We didn't tell my grand-daughters, seeing how long they took to work it out. One told my daughter that I didn't smell of smoke any more and another remarked on how well I looked and had I put on weight? So it didn't take them long. My son is also very pleased. Everyone is unbelieving that I have managed it. I wish that I had done it years ago. I feel so well and it is lovely to go out and not worry about the way I smell and how the house smells. New curtains etc. are now on my shopping list.

Thank you Rita for your help. I shall be eternally grateful to you."

With kindest regards


Life Coaching sessions

I was talking about you today so I just wanted to drop you a text to say THANK YOU again Rita for all you did to support James and I. We are a year on from when you saw us and are still really good together. We learnt so much from you and James has made new habits which take the pressure of me! I’m not sure whether he found his inner voice but  either way we are better than ever. You really did save our marriage and I’ll be eternally grateful.  Lots of Love Jo xx
