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 headaches and short-term stress after shows and 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! This book is available to buy from

We also ask why some people become addicted to religion and how spirituality can lead to narcissism. Are we heading for a Godless secular future, or is belief in the supernatural here to stay?

Understanding group behaviour ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Through my work as a hypnotist I have always been fascinated by the behaviour of people in situations where the emotional response of the group has been manipulated and dictated by the leaders or organisers – and how normally sane independently minded individuals can become submerged in the larger organism of the group.
