Our team

First appointment

During your first 45 minute consultation, we will discuss your answers to our questionnaire and our approaches on how to stop smoking. You will receive a list outlining all the benefits of quitting and a schedule outlining when you can expect these positive changes to take place after quitting. 

Follow-up consultations

During the first period, we will schedule frequent consultations with you. Later during the year, these consultations will decrease in frequency to once a month, or once every two months. The number of appointments that you will have, depends on your personal situation. You can choose between phone consultations and appointments at the clinic. 

What are the consultations about?

During these follow-up consultations, we will discuss the symptoms that you face after quitting smoking. We will also discuss your risks in various situations (situations in which it is hard for you not to smoke) and we will look for ways to cope with them.

Final consultation

If you would prefer, we can schedule a final consultation at the end of the year. During this consultation, we will evaluate the year and give you recommendations for the future.
