Creating Hypnotic Effects - with James Brown

Join James Brown for a fun and informative one day learning experience covering the principles of hypnotic suggestion to entertain and intrigue.

During this no-nonsense, science informed training, James will teach you the basics of hypnosis and dispel some of the persistent myths surrounding this fascinating field of study.

Through practical hands on training you will develop the skills, knowledge and confidence to perform hypnotic effects and create powerful experiences for and with your audience.

Learn how to frame and present hypnosis in an honest and ethical way that will draw in the most sceptical of participants and create a ‘no-fail’ environment to play in.

Through the day James will be teaching stand alone effects as well as the principles that ACTUALLY make them work so that you will leave equipped to perform fluently

This is NOT your bog standard ‘sleep deeper and deeper’ training experience… here you will learn how to effortlessly help your audience bend reality and create new and exiting worlds without the necessity for long winded inductions or the painful search for the ‘easy’ subject.

Who Should Attend?

This workshop is ideal for:

  • Hypnotists who want to develop more confidence in using hypnotic phenomena
  • Magicians and entertainers who want to incorporate hypnotic phenomena to enhance routines and wow audiences
  • Anyone who wants to learn more about hypnotic phenomena and what's really going on
  • Anyone who wants to enjoy a fun and fascinating day of training with an excellent hypnotist, magician and entertainer

"I can't be hypnotised… Many have tried! I've also wasted money on some really poor training. However when James did a routine on me IT WORKED! Having done a pickpocket course with him years ago, I know this will be a fantastic days training that will equip me to add this to my close up magic."
