The Clinic Format
The presentation of Allen Carr's Easyway method, at all the Easyway Clinics worldwide, is the same.
- Cape Town
- Port Elizabeth
- East London
Clinics are available in:
All Allen Carr therapists are carefully selected and undergo intensive training. They are evaluated continuously and when it is felt that they will have the same success rates as Allen Carr himself, they are licensed to offer sessions to the public. Smokers are treated in small groups of usually not more than twenty five people.
There is only one Allen Carr Method and it is available and successful in a number of formats. The Easyway Clinic format is the most successful format.
The session lasts about 5 hours during which the Allen Carr therapist delivers the Easyway method in an interactive form. All smokers in the group are required to participate and debate any points that they cannot accept or do not understand. The session does not proceed until each smoker has understood and accepted what has been said and all doubts and queries have been satisfactorily dispelled. The smokers are allowed to smoke throughout the session until they smoke their final cigarette at the end. After the final cigarette there is a relaxation exercise that last about fifteen minutes, during the relaxation exercise the therapist repeats and reinforces all of the facts that have been agreed upon to be correct during the therapy.
- they will first have to endure an indeterminable period of abject misery
- that social occasions will never be quite so enjoyable
- that they will be less able to concentrate and cope with stress
- and that although they might never smoke again, they will never be completely free and that for the rest of their lives they will have occasional yearnings to smoke a cigarette and will have to use their willpower to resist the temptation.
Smokers arrive at our clinics in differing states of panic convinced that they won't succeed and believing that even if by some miracle they do manage to quit:
The vast majority of these smokers leave the clinic relieved and elated not to smoke.
For those smokers who continue to smoke, or are not happy about not smoking, we offer a different, free, 2½ hour back up session. Most of these smokers leave the follow up as happy non-smokers. For the minority of smokers who still do not succeed in stopping, we offer a third, free, 2 hour back up session, which is also different. Of the minority of smokers that need to attend the third session at least half will leave as happy non-smokers.
CLINIC COST - Cost of the Allen Carr clinic is R3100.00 per private delegate and R620.00 per Discovery Vitality Members.
