Smoking killed my husband but I can help you give up

A WOMAN whose husband died from lung cancer caused by a lifetime of smoking says she can help other people kick the habit.

Sue Turner, from Henley, lost her husband Tom to the disease in 1994. He was 55.

The former NHS health centre manager continued to run their business, the former Henley Books shop in Reading Road, until 2000 when she decided to change career and trained to become a clinical hypnotherapist.

Mrs Turner said: “I used to spend ages in the bookshop talking to people. I had lots of things to deal with and people would come in and offer their support. I was quite overwhelmed by kindness.

“After a while, I started to think about myself quite objectively and decided to take a counselling course but it wasn’t dynamic enough for me, which is when I ventured into hypnotherapy.”
