James Tripp - Smoking Cessation Mindshifts

A deep exploration of Smoking Cessation Intervention for Hypnotists and NLPers

Over 4.5 hours of audio material exploring my approach to

Smoking Cessation with Hypnosis, NLP and Beyond…

Hi there, James Tripp here - welcome to the information page for this unique audio program!

First off - I’m not going to write a lot of ‘sales copy’ about this material because it doesn’t need it. If you are developing yourself as a hypnotist and/or NLPer, you probably already know how much practitioners command in fees for smoking cessation work. My fee is £250 and there are plenty who charge a LOT more than I do.

Being aware of this, you might have already decided that smoking cessation is something that is well be worth you getting good at… and you can!


Early in 2015 I invited a small group of interested practitioners to my then offices in Letchworth Garden City to partake in an exploration of my approach to running smoking cessation interventions. We spent the day getting deep into the key understandings, strategy, tactics and psychological subtleties of how I personally approach smoking cessation work within a hypnotherapy/NLP frame.

“Awesome seminar on Smoking Cessation! I was on the train home feeling as though I’d got more value in one day than most courses teach in an entire week! Your work is definitely a cut above the majority of trainers in the field. Can’t wait to see what other courses you’ve got lined up for the year.”

Steve Kirton, Author of ‘Ancient Secrets of the Mind’

As it was a small group event only, many people asked me if I would record it for wider release, so at the last minute I decided that I would. And it has taken me nearly a year to tidy up the recording and get it ready for release!

This result is Smoking Cessation Mindshifts - a 5 hour and 43 minute audio program on conducting effective smoking cessation interventions for those with some skill and grounding in NLP and Hypnosis (your specific background is not important here, so long as you have some skills and tools).

Through this audio exploration I am sharing with you the most effective understandings and approaches that I have utilized and developed across 7 years of working with smokers who are choosing to quit. I am not only sharing with you what I have found to work (and why), but also what I have found to be less useful too (some of which is exactly the kind of thing that some practitioners encourage).

Q: Will I be learning scripts?

A: No, you will not be learning scripts or specific techniques. The program is all about principles and deep understanding. When you understand, you don’t need scripts.

Q: Will I be able to use the material covered straight way?

A: You will be able to use what you learn straight away, providing you have the skills to run hypnosis and NLP processes. The big part of smoking cessation work lies in understanding and attitude more than techniques.

Q: Is there a manual or transcript?

A: At the moment, this is an exclusively audio only program.

Q: Are you a smoking cessation specialist?

A: No. I work with behavioral change across the board so smoking cessation work (and other addictions work) is just part of what I do.

Q: What is your success rate?

A: I have a high success rate (it’s been a while since I worked with someone who failed to quit) BUT, to be clear traditionally I speak to everyone I work with before I work with them, and if they are not 100% committed to quitting smoking I don’t usually work with them. This is explored fully in the program, along with a recent change id strategy and direction. What the client brings is important, as is your ability to assess that. If you are looking for a method that has a high success rate with uncommitted people - good luck!
