What happens at my first appointment?
The first appointment is for an hour during which we go through an assessment and management plan.
How long are appointments?
After your first appointment, all other appointments are 30 minutes long and we'll meet weekly or fortnightly.
How will you help me?
We use lots of different strategies as everyone is different and needs different supports. We'll find what right for you.
I'm not a heavy smoker. Can you still help me?
Yes – it doesn’t matter if you smoke a lot or a little, whether you are young or old, if it’s your first go, or whether you have tried and failed many times before. We will find what is right for you.
I don't know if I'm ready to stop smoking. Can I try and see how I go?
Yes. Some people want to stop smoking temporarily such as in preparation for surgery, or some might want to find out what quitting is all about, without committing straight away. This is OK and we're here to support yo with advice and information.
I don't want to join a group. Is this OK?
Yes, we do not offer group work. Our sessions are only one-on-one and tailored to you. Everything remains confidential.
