Our Belfast hypnotherapist is Joe Boyle. Joe trained later in life, as a second career, so he brings a great deal of life experience to consultations. He qualified in 2001.

Our Newtownabbey hypnotherapist is Jim Hanna, and Jim had had much the same experience as Joe. He sees our clients to the north of Belfast, and has been an NSSC Partner for almost eight years now.


Most people know about hypnotherapy to stop smoking, but in fact acupuncture is every bit as good. The obvious question we get asked is which is better, but the question is not helpful. It is certainly true that by and large most people succeed in stopping smoking with hypnotherapy, However, it doesn’t suit every smoker, and so sometimes we recommend acupuncture instead. In addition to this, something very few smokers ever take into account is just what their problem with stopping is. The two therapies achieve the same result, but to a large extent the issues they tackle are different.

If your primary problem is that you have clear withdrawal symptoms when you stop, then there is a strong case for acupuncture. If, on the other hand, you can stop for at least five days at a time (and you don’t find that hard), but you don’t stay stopped, then let’s look at hypnotherapy. Either way, we can help you to stop. It’s just a question of which is the best choice to get it right first time. There is some helpful information about the two therapies here. If you would like us to give you a personal recommendation, we’ll be very happy to do that, so call us or email, via our contact page here. And there are some helpful video to watch on the main NSSC website.
