An Ericksonian approach to smoking cessation is a four-session model utilising solution focused questions, strategic task assignments, and both conversational and formal hypnosis. This model assists clients to change their experience of smoking, generating a pattern interruption that gradually expands through the course of treatment, ultimately rendering the smoking habit powerless. The subconscious mind creates a seamless transition that enables a client to experience a resolution that is, most commonly, devoid of irritability and other withdrawal symptoms. Jeff K. Zeig, PhD, a teacher of mine, once said, "Therapy is the art of changing patterns." (Zeig, 2002) This model creates change from the inside-out, enabling a client to tap in to the endless stream of healing energy that flows within the mind-body connection.
