3) Stress and Tension

4) Boredom and Frustration

5) Fatigue and Stimulation

6) Relaxation and Enjoyment

Only when you beat all six triggers will you be able to quit smoking!

If you choose to wait and continue to smoke then you end up dealing with... 

  • Spending up to $5,000 a year on something that has zero health benefits.

  • Running the risk of getting COPD, lung cancer, and heart disease.

  • Trouble breathing doing the simplest of tasks like bringing in groceries.

  • Feeling like a hypocrite because you are doing something you don't want your children, grandchildren, or even pets to do.

  • Being a social outcast.

  • Fear of dying young or even being stuck to an oxygen tank still wishing you quit smoking.

  • Feel like you have no control or power in your life because the cigarette controls you.

So our goal is to rewind and reverse all of that, and we do that with this process

What happens during my Session?

This is going to be dramatically different from anything you’ve done before. From the moment you walk in the door, we will get to work immediately to identify what has been holding you back… and help you let go of it!

Hypnosis is a natural process in which your mind is more receptive to positive suggestions, insight, and releasing negative feelings.  It’s your mind’s ability to integrate new skills, strategies, and strengths rapidly.


We will talk about the new reality you are ready to enjoy as a nonsmoker, free of cigarettes for life. I will explain every step of this process to you before anything happens. I care about your well-being, and I want you to understand the science of how it works and why this process is so effective. You feel completely comfortable and excited to begin.


I will work with your neurological system for about 15 minutes. You don’t have a conscious problem. You didn’t consciously decide to get hooked on smoking. You have an unconscious problem holding onto the cigarettes deep within your mental, physical, and emotional system.

The fact that you’re reading this website means that, up until we meet, your system wants to keep you smoking. As an immediate result of the work we’ll do together, your own body will indicate that the problem has been cleared from your system. Many of my clients tell me they already knew they were nonsmokers even before sitting in the chair for the hypnotic state.


We will address and eradicate your old smoking habit from all angles. You will experience an evidence-based profound Hypnotic experience specifically designed for you to help you throw out the cigarettes and take back control of your life.

Your part of this is easy. To my clients' surprise, it can also be much fun. Respectfully, this shit doesn’t have to be complicated anymore. So relax. You will sit in a comfy recliner, and it will be just like listening to me tell you a story. You will be awake and alert the entire time. You will be completely in control. You will remember everything clearly.


It will be like before you ever smoked when you open your eyes. Even if someone blows smoke in your face, it won't bother you a bit. You will be a non-smoker!


You will be a raving fan of the process. Most of my stop-smoking clients come in by way of referral because of the immediate effects and long-term outcomes you will notice as you’re now free of the cigarettes for life.

Here's what people are saying:

"My Husband and I went to Our Power Up Coach to Quit Smoking. We both tried everything else to Quit and failed miserably. With 2 young boys, we wanted to set a good example for them and figured why not try one more thing. I am so glad we did! Here we are a year later and our coach still reaches out to us to make sure we are doing well. We are now ready to take the next step in our life and letting our coach help us take control  of our eating habits to make them more consistent."- Scott and Jessica

"I am a hair stylist and I was always running outside to have a smoke. I could tell it was bothering my clients smelling it on my and I didn't like how it made me feel. I always used it as a crutch to "get away" when i needed a break, but My Power Up Coach helped me find a new way to still "get away" and now I don't miss smoking at all. I am so glad my sister in law when to them and told me about them. It has changed my life for the better"- Crystal

How Long Does it Take to Get Results?

Everyone is different. Most people are non-smokers after the first session though.

Imagine how hard it is to forget the number 3! IF that can happen (seen in the video in under 2 minutes), Quitting Smoking is even easier.

What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a state of focused consciousness. Your Hypnotherapist will assist you in learning how to achieve this state by guiding you into it.


Once this has been achieved, you will then receive what are called hypnotic suggestions. These suggestions will enable you to use the power of hypnosis in your life to make the changes you desire.


Hypnosis can help you change habits and to provide you with the motivation to do the things that you may have been putting off.


Hypnotherapy applies this use of hypnosis to move someone toward health and wholeness.

Is Hypnosis Safe?

Hypnosis is safe. It is very similar to experiencing a daydream. Usually, you feel relaxed when doing hypnosis.


Hypnosis in and of itself is a very pleasant experience. It is a time to let go of the other thoughts of the day and focus on the issues you came in to work on.

Can I be Hypnotized?

Of course, you can! You already have been. It's easy to go into hypnosis and it's a normal state of mind everyone has already experienced.


Hypnosis is such a normal state of the mind, that most people usually don't even realize that they are hypnotized.


Normal everyday hypnosis occurs when you are driving down the road and lose track of time when you are reading a book, or watching television and you don't even notice something that is going on around you.


When you come in for hypnosis, all you need to do is to be able to follow the instructions of the hypnotherapist and you can pull the power of hypnosis to work for you. As long as you have the willingness and the ability to follow instructions, you can experience hypnosis and use it to improve your life.

Is there a Guarantee I Will Quit Smoking?

All Quit Smoking Sessions come with a 1-Year Smoke-Free Guarantee.

Here's the catch:

We can't (and won't) accept everyone. We pride ourselves on our 93% success rate in helping people quit smoking.


In order to invest our time and energy into providing you with a custom Quit Smoking Session, you need to meet some strict (but reasonable) criteria.


Here it is:


1. You can't be looking to Quit Smoking Without being honest with yourself or trying to replace smoking with any unhealthy behaviors. 


Nor will I work with anyone who thinks I have a "silver bullet." We are creating a new healthy lifestyle for you that will find healthy responses that keep you a non-smoker, shift your mindset to a healthy one, and use all the tools we give you to arm yourself for the lifestyle you want.


2. You must be willing to make these lifestyle changes 


This isn’t for people who want to quit smoking and not make any lifestyle changes.

Here's what people are saying:

"I went to Pete to stop a habit that I didn't like. I thought it would be difficult to stop. Instead, it's been a month, I have not relapsed, it's been easy for me to stay on track, and I feel great! Now I am making an appointment to work on something different so I can make further improvements in my life that I have tried but have not been successful alone, improvements that I've wanted for years. I can't wait."- James

"I own my own small construction company. I originally came to see my Power Up Coach to quit smoking and that alone saved me $900 a month. Then Pete helped me tighten up my business so I am more efficient and more profitable. I never thought of using a coach before, but now I wish I went to him years ago because I can only imagine where'd I'd be right now."- Ron
