Quote from Ms. Jana Hecker, your counsellor:

"As a former smoker, I know it is extremely difficult to quit smoking without support. I enjoy sharing over 15 years of personal and clinical experience in pulmonology with the participants in the anti-smoking classes. As a qualified trainer, I always try to guide the participants in my courses on the road to success with one goal in mind: to quit smoking."

Ms Jana Hecker is a registered nurse who has been active in the field for over 10 years. Certified by the Institute for Therapy Research IFT, she leads the anti-smoking programme.

You are more likely to stop smoking if you take part in group therapy,
even if you are a long-time smoker!
