Smoking Cessation Training and Workshops across Australia
Professional training and seminars on how to quit smoking
As smoking continues to be the leading cause of preventable disease and premature death in Australia, and as two in three lifetime smokers will die as a result of their habit (and on average 10 years earlier than their non-smoking friends), we are keen to continue making a difference, to help reduce the devastating harm caused by smoking in our society.
Quitting smoking can be difficult, particularly when surrounded by other smokers at home or in the workplace. Engaging in the smoking conversation for a few minutes however, and in a positive and non-judgmental way can encourage behaviour change amongst people who smoke. This translates into more quitting attempts and increased success.
With quitting having immediate as well as long term benefits for the individual and for the community at large, participating in smoking cessation education is a worthwhile investment.
At Health & Wellbeing Training Consultants, we assist organisations throughout Australia in supporting a smokefree lifestyle through our smoking cessation training for health and community professionals , as well as quit smoking workshops for staff within the workplace and corporate sector.
Our approach focuses on utilising practical strategies to make it as easy as possible for you, your clients or employees to learn about their smoking behaviour, including highlighting the most effective and successful methods and products to help individuals quit successfully.

Quit smoking 6 week program
An additional quit smoking course is also available. This program is presented over 6 weeks with each session of the program running for 1 – 2 hours (depending on the availability of staff, the timing of the session is flexible.)
Over 6 weeks, the program explores addiction and smoking behaviour, various challenges of quitting, such as stress, weight gain and managing alcohol without smoking, as well as quitting smoking methods and medications, relapse prevention, electronic cigarettes and support services available.
Throughout the 6 session program, participants will be asked to reflect on their own challenges to quitting and potential triggers to start smoking again. Effective strategies to deal with these concerns will be explored and identified within the group. There will be many opportunities in the sessions for reflection and review, with non-threatening group discussion and activities incorporated throughout the program.
