Find Smoking Therapists & Counselors in Santa Barbara, CA.

 

Most people know the negative consequences of smoking cigarettes, cigars, or other tobacco products but still find it nearly impossible to quit. You can successfully quit smoking with the advice, support, and tools of a trained therapist or counselor.

Smoking cessation therapy uses primarily nicotine replacement therapy and behavioral therapies to help reduce urges and make it easier to put the tobacco down for good. Trained therapists can help you develop other coping mechanisms, prevent triggers, and create new thoughts and behaviors when you feel a craving.

Whether you are located in downtown Santa Barbara, the suburbs of Santa Barbara, other nearby places such as Ventura, Lompoc, or anywhere else in California, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.

Signs Smoking Cessation Therapy Can Help

Here are some signs indicating that you should explore smoking cessation therapy:

  • You want to quit smoking but are having trouble.
  • You experience withdrawal symptoms when you don’t smoke.
  • You have tried over-the-counter gums or patches with little success.
  • You feel like you lack the community support to successfully quit smoking.

One successful tool used by smoking cessation therapists is hypnotherapy, which can help you create new thoughts and behaviors in a safe environment. If you’re not sure, read licensed therapist Keiko Wolfe’s description of how hypnotherapy can help you quit smoking.
