A shocking exposé of stage hypnosis in Britain.
Plagued by incompetence, most hypnotists have no idea what to do when things go wrong… and some are downright dangerous. I explain why volunteers sometimes suffer confusion, headaches and short-term stress after taking part in some shows. I present new evidence showing stage hypnosis was a significant factor in the death of Sharron Tabarn in 1994. The 1952 Hypnotism Act is no longer fit for purpose and drastic changes in the law are long overdue!


A Brief History of Hypnosis
The story of hypnosis, from its beginnings at an 18th century priest’s exorcisms, to Franz Mesmer’s experiments with magnets to the experimenters of the 18th and 19th century, to how 20th century science and modern psychology solved the puzzle of Hypnosis, to become a mainstream therapy.

Human Psychology ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Grey Matter
Your brain is the most complex structure in the universe. It is the control centre of your fundamental nature, your spirit and your soul, controlling your character, your personality and the very essence of everything you are. This is how it works…
Human Psychology
Most people think that psychology is the study of the mind… but the mind is too difficult to quantify. Psychology is the study of behaviour — of individuals or groups — to discover what it means to be human.
Intelligence & Communication
Why you really are smarter than your parents, and how your intelligence improves with age. Less than half of communication is verbal… we really communicate by reading facial expression and body language…
Our memories are our identity. We look at ways to learn and improve memory and how stress affects memory and how memory can be biased. Memory is malleable, and prone to creating false memories.

Addiction & Technology Addiction ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

A serious examination and explanation of Alcohol, Drug, Gambling, Smoking, and Shopping Addiction…
Understanding why people become addicted to their Smartphones, Video Games and Social Media gives us a better idea of how to treat it. The bad news is that we are likely to become even more addicted to technology in the very near future…

Understanding group behaviour ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Understanding Group Behaviour
I have always been fascinated by the emotional response of the group, manipulated by self-appointed leaders, and how usually sane, independent minded individuals become submerged in the larger organism of the group.
The Psychology of Religion
Our brains are hard-wired for belief even when the battle between faith and reason rages in our heads. Does religious practice use hypnosis to brainwash millions of followers? Are we heading for a Godless secular future, or is belief in the supernatural here to stay?
There’s a psychopath living next door to you, in your workplace and even in your bed. They do not wield knives or raise their voices – their chosen weapon is the long game, and first prize is your destruction.
Inside the Mind of a Terrorist
From the war-torn trouble spots of the world to the bright cities of Paris, London and New York, terrorism is something that affects us all. To understand it, we must first understand the terrorist.
