  1. A new TV show with Paul McKenna is in the works

    Paul McKenna is the name that many people find first comes to mind when they think about Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy. He started out as a DJ on the radio and after interviewing a hypnotist he decided that he would learn how to hypnotise for himself. Strangely I used to also be on the radio and now practice as a Hypnotherapist, so perhaps that is why I have always had a warm regards for Paul.

    Most people will remember him from his TV show "The Hypnotic World of Paul McKenna". He then moved a little more into the background working with celebrity clients such as Simon Cowell and writing books and audio CDs to help people lose weight, sleep better and lots of other things.

    He has become very involved in a new therapy called Havening working around the world and helping to teach the Havening Techinque to people.

    Now, it looks as if we will see Paul back on TV soon with a new Show all about helping people with fears and phobias. He may well use the Havening method as this is often used to help people let go of those fears and phobias that have taken over their life.

    He tweeted out a request for help and looking for someone to get involved in the show in November 2019..

    "If you have a phobia or unusual condition that is affecting your life and you'd like me to help you, I am recording a TV pilot and would like to feature this. Please email: [email protected] with a tel no. Please note, I am only looking for one person so can't reply to everyone."

    So, what will the TV show be about? What will it be called? Where can you watch the new Paul McKenna TV show? all these questions are ones that we will have to answer as time goes on. It is certainly an intriguing prospect. Paul was always a great entertainer and seeing him change into a more serious therapist he has been able to use these skills to the maximum.

    In fact I saw the Paul McKenna live hypnotic show in London many years ago and never forgot seeing it. It was one of the things that inspired me to become a Hypnotherapist too.  For now we must all just wait with baited breath to see what happens!



  2. Love Island and X-Factor star talks about Hypnotherapy for stress and anxiety of performing.

     Zara McDermott X factor

    Amongst the celebrities appearing on Simon Cowell’s spin of from his pop show Celebrity X-Factor is former Love Island contestant Zara McDermott and she has been telling her Instagram followers all about how she prepared for the show by seeking out hypnosis.

    The reality star is currently competing in singing band The Islanders, along with former fellow contestants Samira Mighty, Wes Nelson and Eyal Booker.

    Speaking on her Instagram stories, Zara told over one million Instagram followers that she had “never been so excited in all her life”to sit down and watch the show, which kicked off  on Saturday 12th October on  ITV.

    “Today is the day, Celebrity X Factor is happening,  I’ve never been so excited in all my life. I know it’s been the biggest build up in the whole world and I’ve not stopped talking about it – the reason for that is because this is the biggest thing I’ve ever done in my life.”

    She went on to reveal how having Hypnotherapy helped her to overcome the nerves that could have stopped her from being able to perform.

     “I had to have hypnotherapy to be able to even sing in front of the producers, so to be able to then go on and progress so much and be able to sing in front of Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh, Nicole Scherzinger, and some of the best, most successful people in the industry was just a huge thing for me.

    You know if anything comes out of this show, from a personal level, it’s that I wanna show people that if you work hard enough and put your mind to something and you think you’re scared of doing something or you’re nervous or you just think, ‘I’m petrified and I will never be able to do that’ – I want people to inspire some people to push themselves so far out their comfort zone they never thought they’d be able to do it.”

    Zara isn’t the first Love Island star to talk about how finding hypnotherapy helped them.  Chris Hughes has also spoken about how hypnosis was really useful in helping him through a tough period: https://www.markpowlett.co.uk/myblog/read_178136/chris-from-love-island-talks-about-hypnosis-to-stop-his-panic-attacks.html
