    Matthew Perry Book review Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing

    The new book by Matthew Perry from Friends is called “Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing” It is a frank and honest account of his life which goes into great detail about his addictions and the problems he has faced. As a Clinical Hypnotherapist and someone who works with people who want to stop smoking and uses hypnotherapy to stop smoking I found the section on how he visited a Hypnotist in the US very interesting.

    As Matthew Perry himself says about the effect his visit and undergoing hypnosis....

    “It worked. How he managed to remove my withdrawal symptoms and how that is even possible medically via hypnosis is a mystery to me. But I wasn’t going to ask any more questions.”

    This reaction is a typical one.

    “It worked. I was a non-smoker”

    One thing that I find is that people are often surprised by how they just don’t need, or want a cigarette any more. Rather than craving them often you just forget about wanting one at all.

    How did Matthew Perry describe his stop smoking hypnosis session?

    When he talks about the session he gives a good idea of how it feels. He didn’t even feel as if anything had happened to him. He lay down, listened to the hypnotherapist talking to him and then went off about his day. Even though he didn’t think anything had changed he started to realise that things were changing.

    The best part of the story..

    To me the best part of this story is that the hypnotherapist knew and explained the real reason why Matthew Perry was able to become a non smoker. Because he was ready, and he really wanted to.

    I know that may sound simple and easy, but that is always the key. A hypnotherapist can help you to become a non smoker...if you really want to. We are there to help, not to make you do something that you do not. Once you know you want to quit smoking for good, forever, then hypnosis to quit smoking can be a fantastic help for you.

    How Can I have a Quit Smoking Hypnosis Session?

    I work both in my practice and online via Skype and Zoom to help people lose that habit and feel great about stoppping smoking. You can watch a video where I talk all about it below and if you would like to find out more you can email me at

    Does Hypnosis to Quit Smoking work?

    Can Hypnotherapy help you to Stop Smoking for good this Stoptober ?

    Last year Stoptober passed quite a few people by as we headed into another Covid wave and people had other things on their mind.

    This year as we head into a flu season with Coronavirus still around, there is no better time to look at giving up smoking for good. Studies have shown that being a smoker can make your reaction to both Covid and flu worse. Because we now know that Covid cases can cause even worse problems in the lungs of smokers, you may also wonder if Hypnotherapy could be the answer you are looking for, if you find it hard to quit smoking alone.

    What is Stoptober?

    It has now been going for a good few years. The idea of a month to help raise awareness of giving up cigarettes for good to help you and also of course the strain on the NHS in having to deal with more patients at a time when things are already very busy.

    It is a government backed scheme designed to help people who really want to give up smoking. The thinking of a month long campaign is that if you can give up for 28 days then you are much more likely to remain a non smoker.

    It takes about that long to break a habit so with a little support you can get to November and not need another cigarette again.

    The difference with Hypnotherapy to stop smoking... The biggest difference is that we really want you to leave after seeing me with the habit already in check. Rather than a struggle with willpower for a month, my aim is that you simply stop and don’t find any cravings or need to smoke any longer.

    How do I know Hypnosis works to quit smoking?

    Well...I used Hypnosis to Stop Smoking myself

    For myself, I gave up smoking myself with hypnotherapy well over twenty years ago and now I help others to quit smoking with hypnosis in just one session! We have a session which lasts about an hour and a half and after we talk things through and I introduce you to how hypnosis works then you go away already a non smoker.

    I even make you a recording of the hypnosis that we do to help everything sink in and also act as a great way to switch off and relax at home.

    Many of the things that I help people with can take a few sessions, but quitting smoking with hypnosis is completed in one session for you. Don’t forget, I even make you a recording that you can listen to at home to really help you stay a non smoker.

    There are many different ways that you can get help and as a Clinical Hypnotherapist I know how successful hypnotherapy can be.

    The most important thing is that just starting to think about it and talk about it can lead you to really make the change.

    Having read this page on my website is a great start. You can either contact me now, or just let yourself have a few days to think about when you are ready to let go of the cigarettes and take back control from them.

    Skype Quit Smoking sessions.

    When Covid hit the world many people turned to working online. However, I have been working with people online to help them with Skype Hypnotherapy for about ten years so I already had lots of experience. If you are near to me in Redditch in the UK then you can come and see me in person. If you are further afield then you can still work with me online on Skype in the comfort of your own home.

    In 2021 the Covid crisis has made Stoptober even more important. If you catch Coronavirus as a smoker then the effects could be much worse for you as it affects your lungs. This year the UK Government will be making even more noise about the benefits of stopping smoking.
