“King of Hypnotists” Jonathan Royle Predicts Potential Legal Issues for Derren Browns Planned “Psychological” Ride at Thorpe Park launching March 2016. (Does it need to be regulated by the 1952 Hypnotism Act and will it lead to claims of Psychological Damage?)

I’ll very much be looking forward to seeing and experiencing the final result of this project, namely a “Psychological” Ride devised by Television Mentalist, Hypnotist and Magical Mind Bender Derren Brown which is planned to launch at Thorpe Park (Theme Park) in March 2016…

Read the full Story as it appeared in the Daily Mirror Today here:


More interesting will be to find out if the nature of the end result is something that should be legally licensed/regulated by The 1952 Hypnotism Act as per: http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/Geo6and1Eliz2/15-16/46

And if it is, I wonder how they will go about getting permisison/license granted for each new show (ride) and Audience (riders) and how insurance will work etc…

After all Section Six of the 1952 Hypnotism Act says:

Section 6 Interpretation.

In this Act, except where the context otherwise requires it, the following expression shall have the meaning hereby assigned to it, that is to say:—

“hypnotism” includes hypnotism, mesmerism and any similar act or process which produces or is intended to produce in any person any form of induced sleep or trance in which the susceptibility of the mind of that person to suggestion or direction is increased or intended to be increased but does not include hypnotism, mesmerism or any such similar act or process which is self-induced.

THOUGHTS = If they try going for the “All Hypnosi is Self-Hypnosis” loophole that will be pretty sad and remove much of the power of the Placebo Effect, Belief and Expectancy that are sure to be key elements to this working. Although the biggest key of all will be SUGGESTION and arguably as all Suggestions create some form of Trance it could I reckon be easily be argued that Derren Browns ride should be regualated under the 1952 Hypnotism Act.

There are also a whole host of other legal arguments that could be brought up under the 1952 Hypnotism Act about such a ride if it indeed does use anything that could be argued to be SUGGESTION, Trance Inducing or Hypnotic in any manner..


In any event I very much look forward to finding out and experiencing the final result.


I also have my concerns that if its billed as a “Psychological” Ride then it could well lead to claims from people claiming they have been “Psychologically” harmed by particiapting.

Whether those would ever be valid claims or not is irelevant to the harm such a claim could do to the Stage Hypnosis and Hypnotism Industrys, as with Derren being percieved as a Hypnotist and the article clearly stating the ride will be “Psychological” and involve amongst other things “Suggestion” a potentially huge can of worms could suddenly be opened.

Anyhow this is all purely conjecture at this stage, as until the ride opens we won’t know whether it should be (or is) regulated by the  1952 Hypnotism Act and we won’t be able to assess what the potential (if any) Health and Safety Risks of potential “Psychological” harm may or may not be.

This will be very interesting to keep an eye on for sure!

But knowing Derren he will no doubt have a twist that means all will be OK, well at least I hope he does!

Then go to the “Shop” and look for “The Transparency Template” as per:


I also fear that such an attraction may attract lots of wannabe Hypnotists, especially those Magicians and Mentalists who have read a pamphlet on so called “Street Hpynotists” and now think they are Safe (when most often they are not as they don’t have a clue) to go out Hypnotizing People.

I fear this as such types have started showing up more at mine and my colleagues live Stage Hypnosis Shows and then try to Hypnotize people before and after the show, despite the fact they are not Licensed and not insured to do so, let alone that most of them don’t really have a clue what they are doing,

And in that regards such “Street Hypnosis” that I fear may occur as a direct result of people visiting the attraction as it has Derrens name attached would most certainly be classed as ILLEGAL without the correct Insurances, permissions/licenses and risk assesments being in place as is illustrated at this link:

Is Hypnosis The Ultimate Weight Loss Pill? Dr. Jonathan Royle Answers the Question Posed by Weight Loss Expert Steve Miller of “What Do Weight Loss Hypnotherapists Actually Do (The Good Ones That Is!) ??”

Is Hypnosis the Ultimate Weight Loss Pill ?

By: Dr. Jonathan Royle – www.magicalguru.com

Recently Sky Television’s Star Presenter of Fat Families and Leading Weight Loss
Authority Steve Miller posted a question to his colleagues on Facebook.

Steve Miller Clinical Hypnotherapist

That Question was quite simply:

“What Do Weight Loss Hypnotherapists Actually Do (The Good Ones That Is!) ??”

Well as you can imagine this stimulated much debate and many different answers,
after some thought on the subject I decided to put this blog post together to give you
all my thoughts, ideas and verdict on the subject.

So here we go with some often Controversial ideas mixed with ones that are far more
established and will be easier for most people to accept…


Having been a Professional Hypnotherapy Practitioner, Stage-Hypnotist and Hypnosis Trainer for over 25 years it is my experience and sincere belief that Hypnotism is the Ultimate Weight Loss Pill.

Hypnotists are perceived as being Powerful individuals with the ability to Control and Manipulate peoples minds and as seen in the movies and on TV make them do things they would not normally do.

Dr. Jonathan Royle - Hypnotist - Circa 1990

Dr. Jonathan Royle – Hypnotist – Circa 1990

Therefore as a Hypnotist you truly do have a Power as that is the power of peoples perceptions and internal beliefs, sadly so many Hypnotherapists give up this power by explaining (incorrectly) on their websites, in their leaflets and face to face with clients that Hypnotherapy is not the same as what they have seen on TV and in the Films.

Your Making A Big Mistake!

Personally I would say that explaining such “difference” is the biggest mistake any Hypnotherapist can make. The moment you do this you are effectively telling the client that what they thought is wrong and you are immediately giving away a lot of the power you could have used to help them more rapidly and effectively.

Use Their Perceptions & Belief to Yours & Their Advantage

Far Better to tell them they are right and make them feel good about being right and then use this to your advantage, an example of how I do this is by saying to the client:

Now you may have the impression that when you are Hypnotised, that I will be able to make you cluck like a chicken and bark like a dog, and in truth yes I most certainly can, however that takes time and as you’ve only paid for 60 minutes of my time, you can either pay me some more money and we can do the silly stuff, or we can just get down to business and use this time to help you achieve XYZ

You Are The Magic Pill

You see the perception and belief in your clients in you as a “Powerful Hypnotist” is in itself a hugely powerful Placebo Response Trigger and I have found that the Placebo Response has a far greater involvement in the success that Hypnotherapists achieve than most would care to admit or even realise.

Other Important Points to Consider…

Positive thinking they say leads to positive actions and in turn to positive results. Indeed this is very true where Weight Loss is concerned as if the client does not believe that they can lose weight then they are likely to Self-Sabotage and possibly even make things worse than they currently are. Hypnosis is extremely effective in helping us to help the client positively reprogramme their Personal Neck Top Computers (Brains).

Lot’s of little eating, exercise and lifestyle changes, that bit by bit combine together to a sum bigger than it’s parts are in my opinion and experience far more effective in the long term than sudden massive changes that are more likely to only be sustained in the very short term before being dropped again before they have had time to become ingrained as a positive habit.

Anxiety and Stresses of the clients everyday life may well be what is pushing them towards comfort eating or “eating as a reward” syndrome and in this case Hypnosis can produce amazing results in helping the client to overcome and deal with the Stresses and Anxiety’s of everyday life far more effectively, thus in turn it becomes easier to do the other things that will help them to achieve the Weight Loss they desire.

Confidence, or rather a lacking of and imbalance in the clients Self-Image, Self-Confidence, Self-Esteem and Self-Control (Will Power) is, I have found, more often than not a major reason why they have put on weight and are unable to lose it. Again Hypnosis can and does work wonders in helping people to repair and increase their Self-Image, Self-Confidence, Self-Esteem and Self-Control and when these things are helped the Weight often starts to drop off as they in turn find themselves more motivated to do the right things.

Steve Miller Has Some Controversial Ideas but they Attract Lots of Media and Clients

Steve Miller Has Some Controversial Ideas but they Attract Lots of Media and Clients

Every Human Being on this planet, deep down at an unconscious level wants to, and more importantly needs to feel, Loved, Wanted, Needed, Appreciated, Cared For, Cherished and Valued. If there are any imbalances (as most often there will be) in any of these areas, then in turn it will have a negative effect on the clients Self-Image, Self-Confidence, Self-Esteem and Self-Control. So helping the client to Psychologically learn to Love Themselves is very important and Hypnosis is a great tool for this.

Because Diet’s quite simply do not work in the long-term, it is hugely important to help the client devise, implement and maintain a realistically sustainable positive lifestyle change. After all in essence, for the vast majority of clients that seek Weight Loss Hypnosis, the only real ways to lose weight are to eat less calories than they are currently taking in and to burn off more calories than they currently do. As simplistic as that may sound it is undeniably true as Bob Schwartz explains in his excellent book “Diet’s Don’t Work” which was first published back in 1982.

The Association of Weight Loss Hypnotherapists (AWLH) Is one of the few indeed currently only one (other than my own) Associations I would encourage Hypnotherapy Practitioners to Join.

Obesity is becoming for many a Catch 22 Problem whereby the Stresses, Tensions, Worries, Anxieties and other negatives of everyday life may well have contributed to them gaining weight and taken them to a point where they feel they have no escape. Using Hypnosis we can rapidly help them to overcome these internal issues and reprogramme positively their reactions to external stimuli so that finally they are able to find the Key to unlock themselves from this Prison of Fat.


Now in Conclusion Let Me Tell You One of the Biggest Secrets of all….

Many clients already consciously know exactly what they need to do in order to Lose Weight and to then effectively manage and sustain that new life, even more are already aware at an unconscious level.

However they can’t just make those changes on their own as to do so they would have to admit to themselves, their friends and family that they could have done so in the past and that it was all their own fault why they had not made these changes sooner.

We as Hypnotherapists give them the perfect Excuse why they are only now going to make the changes and why they did not sooner as they can say to people

“I tried really hard in the past to lose the weight and nothing seemed to work until I was Hypnotized by Jonathan Royle”

Dr. Jonathan Royle - Mind Coach

This immediately removes all blame from them and gives them the perfect excuse for not having made the changes sooner and also gives them permission to change now!

As controversial as this viewpoint may be to many, I would advise you to investigate it further and take a look at the paper I recently had published in “The International Journal of Complementary and Alternative Medicine” which can be seen at this link:


IJCAM - The International Journal of Complementary & Alternative Medicine

IJCAM – The International Journal of Complementary & Alternative Medicine

If (as I am sure it will) my article in“The International Journal of Complementary and Alternative Medicine” gets you thinking about the much bigger picture that most
Hypnotherapy & NLP Trainers either simply don’t have a clue about or perhaps are
just too scared to talk about and teach you, then you’d be wise and would benefit
greatly from studying my Three Books on all reas of Hypnosis and NLP.

On several occasions in the blog posting above I have mentioned “The Association
of Weight Loss Hypnotherapists” which was founded by Steve Miller and I have
already mentioned that other than advising people to join “The Association of Complete
Mind Therapists” which I myself run as per: http://tinyurl.com/pefnapu THE ONLY other
Professional Body I would advise fellow Hypnotherapists to
join is “The Association of

Association of Weight Loss Hypnotherapists (AWLH) you can Piggy Back on
Steve Millers Media Success and Regular Extensive Media Coverage.

To anyone who understands how to use media coverage to their advantage (and if you
don’t then you need to study this http://tinyurl.com/pefnapu ) then being able to use
Steve Miller’s Regular Media Exposure as angles to get your own Media Coverage, makes
being able to state that you are a member of “The Association of Weight Loss Hypnotherapists” founded and run by Steve Miller worth its weight in gold many times over!

Can Clinical Hypnotherapists Learn From Stage Hypnotists? by Steve Miller.

As a Clinical Practitioner I have always been fascinated by stage hypnotists. Stage is something I would personally never do, however with an open mind and an open heart I set out recently on a journey to understand whether Clinical Hypnotherapists could benefit from listening to the strategies employed by stage hypnotists.

I came across a guy called Jonathan Royle AKA Alex William Smith who I perceived as a radical experienced stage hypnotist but someone who also treats clinical conditions.

Having made contact some time ago I found him straight talking (my preference) and incredibly knowledgeable. Having posed my question to Mr Royle he kindly invited me to sit in one of his training programmes which I did yesterday.

I attended with an open mind and throughout the day listened carefully to his view that hypnosis does not really exist and was nothing more than a ritualistic process.

Indeed I was intrigued to know more and as he continued with what can only be described as an incredible knowledge of hypnosis, my mind opened to his standpoint.

As the day continued he demonstrated his talent for both stage and clinical hypnosis, demonstrating showmanship and rapid induction techniques.

His view that success comes from the practitioner’s own confidence and self belief is something I share. What also struck me was his passion for ethics and care of the client, as well as health and safety in the consulting room.

The day was delivered in a forthright manner and I drew the conclusion that perhaps the day has arrived for clinical schools to open their doors to teaching advanced showmanship and persona management for Hypnotherapists.

As for the question whether or not hypnosis really truly exists, the jury is still out. One thing for sure however is that we should perhaps listen a little more and have an open mind so that we all learn from each other.
