One of the most famous hypnotists to come out of the English shores, is none other than Paul McKenna. He’s helped millions of people around the world to successfully improve their own lives through his bestselling books, CD’s and DVD’s.
Paul McKenna’s Journey to Self-Improvement Hypnosis
Born in Hackney, East London in 1963, McKenna initially had little interest in the subject of hypnotism. He was however, highly educated in his studies and earned two doctorates from the business school International Management Centres Association (IMCA) and LaSalle University in Louisiana.
From the age of 16, McKenna worked in radio at the in-store Radio Topshop. He went on to present for a number of stations including Chiltern Radio, Radio Caroline, Radio Jackie, Capital Radio, BBC Radio One and the TV channel Music Box.
It was during one of his radio shows that McKenna had a hypnotist as a guest, that led to a developed interest in hypnotism. At first, McKenna only wanted to experiment with the mind for self-improvement reasons, but his fascination would later be utilized for entertainment purposes.
McKenna began his hypnotic shows initially catering to his friends, then to small audiences in various pubs and clubs. At the same time, he was still working for Capital Radio.
His connection with his employer eventually led him to appear as a regular on Sunday night shows at the Duke Hall, owned by Capital during that period.
McKenna’s shows proved to be successful and he capitalized on his popularity, playing in theaters around the UK, Ireland, The Netherlands, USA, Hong Kong and Australia.
The huge momentum that McKenna had going convinced him that his career in radio was all over.
Quitting radio was a good move as McKenna ventured into TV, with ITV broadcasting his first show in 1993, ‘The Hypnotic World of Paul McKenna‘ which combined hypnosis with comedy. It was subsequently shown in 42 countries and the show snowballed into numerous other TV shows and appearances.
