Paul McKenna - The Science Of Hypnosis


Paul McKenna, PhD., is an international best-selling author whose books have sold more than seven million copies and been translated into 32 languages. He is the number one hypnotherapist in the world and is renowned for helping people treat the most difficult problems.

Recognised by The Times as one of “the world’s most important modern self-help gurus,” Paul McKenna is the UK’s most successful non-fiction author, with his work “I Can Make You Thin” being the bestselling self-help book in UK history.

His other successful titles include “Quit Smoking Today Without Gaining Weight”, “I Can Mend Your Broken Heart”, “I Can Make You Rich”, and most recently, “I Can Make You Happy”, which also reached the top of the book charts in the UK.

In this platform exclusive, Paul joins Brian Rose in studio to talk extensively about his fascination with high achievers, using hypnosis techniques to reprogramme ourselves and how he deals with his own fears and life challenges.

Paul McKenna’s journey into the world of mind transformation was shaped by a blend of personal experiences and an innate curiosity about the human mind. His early forays into hypnosis and NLP laid the groundwork for what would become a transformative career dedicated to helping others unlock their latent potential.

McKenna’s mastery of hypnosis is a cornerstone of his approach. Through carefully crafted hypnotic suggestions, he guides individuals into a state of heightened suggestibility, allowing them to tap into the reservoirs of their subconscious minds. This technique has been a key element in his bestselling books, audio programs, and live performances, demonstrating the profound impact of suggestion on behaviour and thought patterns.

One of McKenna’s most significant contributions lies in his ability to distil complex psychological concepts into accessible and actionable insights. His best-selling books serve as gateways for readers to embark on a journey of self-discovery and transformation. Through these works, McKenna demystifies the process of behavioural change, offering practical tools and techniques for individuals to rewrite their life narratives.

“I Can Make You Thin,” a groundbreaking work by McKenna, transcends conventional weight loss approaches. Instead of fixating solely on diets and exercise regimens, the book delves into the psychological underpinnings of overeating and unhealthy habits. By blending hypnosis with NLP, McKenna endeavours to reprogram individuals’ relationships with food, fostering sustainable and holistic weight loss.

McKenna’s influence extends beyond the written word. Through live events and seminars, he orchestrates immersive experiences for audiences eager to embrace rapid transformation. These events cover an array of topics, from conquering fears to fostering confidence and success mindsets. Attendees often emerge from McKenna’s seminars with newfound clarity and empowered perspectives.

At the core of McKenna’s success is his adept use of hypnotic language and communication. Whether in his books, audio programs, or live presentations, he imparts the tools to individuals, enabling them to influence their own thoughts positively. By reshaping language patterns and altering internal dialogues, individuals can dismantle limiting beliefs and unlock their innate potential.

Paul McKenna’s contributions to personal development have earned him global recognition and accolades. Beyond his widespread popularity, he received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the British Comedy Awards, a testament to the enduring impact of his work in transforming minds and lives.

Paul McKenna’s journey from a curious explorer of the mind to a maestro of mindful transformation encapsulates the essence of his impact on individuals worldwide. Through the mediums of hypnosis, NLP, and his expertly crafted communication, McKenna continues to empower millions to break free from constraints, fostering a world where positive change is not only possible but achievable.

As Paul McKenna remains committed to the evolution of personal development, his legacy serves as an enduring source of inspiration for those embarking on their own journeys of mindful transformation.
