Hi! I'm Dr. Claire de la Varre, a consulting hypnotherapist with Positive Spiral Hypnosis based in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. I have helped a lot of people quit smoking since 2008. Now my successful smoking cessation program is available online as a self-paced program, including 10 self-hypnosis mp3 recordings to support you every step of the way. As an optional add-on, you can have two live sessions with me.

Giving up smoking is the easiest thing in the world. I know because I've done it thousands of times!  ~ Mark Twain

What my clients say...

"I have effectively kicked my smoking habit! I do not crave or think about them really at all ... even when they are kind of "in my face." I feel truly free of them. And I really attribute this to you and our sessions, especially our first one, when you made me think about why I wanted to quit, and how they fit in my life, and how serious I was about quitting. I am a believer!" ~KV, Durham, NC

"It has been 2 years, three weeks since I had a cigarette. So, I wanted you to know that I have had no tobacco products in that time and it is basically not part of my thinking when I feel stress. I am much more regular at the gym now and I know I am in better shape than I have been in a number of years. I still listen to your recordings some. Thank you!"

"Claire helped me to crush my bad habit through the power of hypnosis. She also opened my eyes to the things that I didn't know I was thinking. She has a great gift of intuition and empathy. I'm grateful for the help she gave me. You can trust Positive Spiral Hypnosis." ~AH, Chapel Hill, NC
