  1. Is Zayn Malik seeing Paul Mckenna for hypnosis to help him with his anxiety problems?

    You may have seen the news recently that the One Direction star had to cancel a concert at Wembley arena, as he was so overcome with nerves that he didn’t feel he could perform in front of a crowd. Throughout his career he has been very open and honest about how his nerves affect him. On this occasion he decided that he just could not go on stage.

    He tweeted: “I have suffered the worst anxiety of my career. I know those who suffer anxiety will understand, and I hope those who don’t can empathise with my situation.”

    Disappointed fans were very understanding, and of course the fact that he talks about his worries and troubles is a very positive thing and helps younger people to understand that they are not alone if they suffer with anxiety or even panic attacks. paul mckenna instant influence and charisma book

    Now Zayn’s friends have spoken about the fact that he may be looking for help from TV hypnotist Paul McKenna. Paul has already worked with his bandmate Louis Tomlinson. Famous for his stage hypnosis shows, Paul now works with people to help the deal with their worries and problems. Zayn has also apparently spoken to Adele who sought out hypnotherapy to help her quit smoking.

    As a clinical hypnotherapist I see more people for stress and anxiety than anything else. I specialise in helping people to overcoe panic attacks, sometimes known as anxiety attacks. Many people think they need to live with them, but you really do not. You can let go and move on with your life. I even have a FREE MP3 Download on “How to Stop a Panic Attack” which may well help you if you want to download it from the shop page here on this website.

    Zayn had also recently struggled when presenting an award at a New York Gala just two days earlier, when he became hopelessly tongue-tied trying to say the word “innovative”.

    One onlooker later commented: “He fumbled it four times before sheepishly saying he’d had maybe one too many drinks.”

    Of course Paul McKenna is not the only person who helps with this despite how it sometimes appears when looking in the media. People like myself help others on a daily basis, never be afraid to ask for help.

    A source close to Zayn has said

    “Paul is recognised as a genius in his field. Even if he does not put Zayn under personally, he will recommend a fellow professional to put him back on track. He is desperately worried about his condition and believes Hypnotherapy is preferable to taking any kind of prescription medication to calm his nerves.”

    I wish the best for Zayn and do have to say that, simply the fact he is talking about his problems is a good step towards getting better.

  2. If you were a fan of the sitcom Cheers you may well have enjoyed laughing at the antics of barman Woody and the fact that he often seemed to lack a little understanding about exactly what was going on around him. The actor took bartending lessons so that he could really serve the drinks in a way that made him look like he knew what he was doing, even if he didn't always know what he was saying!

    Now though, Woody Harrelson has learnt a new skill that he can use on people as well as being able to pour pints.

    Hypnotism!  It's being reported that he learnt all about hypnosis from Keith Barry, best known for the TV gameshow "You're Back in the Room" who acted as a consultant on the movie "Now you See Me 2" which is all about magic and mentalism.

    Keith Barry taught him how to do a few card tricks via Skype and then went on to the set to act as an advisor. The film also stars actor Mark Ruffalo who appeared as the Incredible Hulk and this inspired Woody to play a trick on him where he made him think that everything he saw was green. He also made him forget about the number 6, a very common trick for stage hypnotists to do.

    Keith Barry encouraged him to try the tricks out saying. “As a hypnotist, you have to prepare to fail all the time, and you do fail because there’s various levels of susceptibility, as we call it. But he embraced it, and we just had an absolute blast while we were out and about.”

    Sadly for those who may be thinking that he really did take control of Mark Ruffalo's mind the truth came out when they were doing press interviews this week for Now you see me 2. Mark explained that he had actually just been playing along.

    "Whatever Woody thinks happened, I'll back him up. Him and Keith Barry seem to think they actually hypnotised me and my recollection of it was very different." said Ruffalo recently.

    I've heard that explanation before!
