The Magic Circle – Why Did they Book & Then Cancel Magician, Hypnotist & Mentalist Jonathan Royle’s Magic & Mentalism Lecture ??? – Was it as a Result of Paul Zenon (and others) Defamatory Comments & Lies ???


Did The Magic Circle Cancel Royle's Lecture due to Defamatory Lies??

Did The Magic Circle Cancel Royle’s Lecture due to Defamatory Lies??


(This Letter Was Sent to them by Email and also Signed for Postal Delivery on Friday 2nd June 2017 – other than an email confirming arrival of it & payment of monies into my bank there has to date of posting this blog page been no other communication or reply)

Dear Sirs,

Following the phone call and follow up email that I received from Darryl Rose on Wednesday 31st May which cancelled my Lecture scheduled for 19th June 2017 at The Magic Circle, please find enclosed an itemised invoice FOR IMEDIATE PAYMENT to the grand total of £259.35p which covers all of my out of pocket and impossible to cancel expenses.

I would imagine that it goes without saying that I am formally cancelling my application to join the Magic Circle in light of these events (given that my Lecture was going to be my exam as agreed) and indeed on Wednesday 31st May I sent Membership Secretary Lee Hathaway an email to his inbox on Facebook to state the same.

For the avoidance of any confusion, as I booked my Hotel Room back in January, and the train tickets back in March, it is now impossible for me to get a refund on them as I bought them on the basis of agreeing to not be able to get a refund in order to get them at the cheapest possible discounted price.

Therefore given that it was Wednesday 31st May 2017 that I was officially cancelled and that this was only 19 days before the date I was due to be lecturing at The Magic Circle I shall be expecting payment in full to cover all of my out of pocket expenses to the tune of £259.35p as per the enclosed invoice.

Payment is due to arrive with me On or Before 19th June 2017 the date of the now cancelled event by way of either:

a) A Cheque Payable to – Dr. Alex William Smith


b) Payment by Paypal to the email of

NOTE = If paying by Paypal it must either be sent as a gift so there are no deductions made at my end or the amount sent needs to be increased to £268.69p in order for me to receive £259.35p after paypal take their fees.


c) Payment by Bank Transfer to the following details:

Payment to: A W Smith

Bank: Yorkshire Bank – Rochdale Branch

Sort Code: **-**-**

Account Number: ********

As well as the enclosed/attached invoice, you will also find by email jpeg images of the tickets and bookings etc along with a screen shot from the Facebook “Magicians Only” group which was posted at around 2-30am ish on the morning of Wednesday 31st May 2017 by Magic Circle Member Paul Zenon and within which you can clearly see that he is stating that he is delighted that my Lecture has been cancelled.

Paul Zenon has a History of Posting Defamatory Lies about me on the Internet.

Paul Zenon has a History of Posting Defamatory Lies about me on the Internet.

I would remind you that on Tuesday 30th May 2017 shortly after Darryl Rose had posted about my forthcoming Lecture in the Magic Circle Private Members group that Paul Zenon almost immediately posted things which accused me of amongst other things:

*Stealing Other Peoples Material (Which I have & do not do)

*Having Multiple Criminal Convictions (Which again is Untrue)

This led to Darryl calling me on the afternoon of Tuesday 30th May and I explained the truth behind everything and directed him to the site of where the truth, facts, evidence and real facts are all laid out in great detail behind these wholly Defamatory comments.

It should also be noted that Paul Zenon has a History of posting Defamatory Lies about me both on Facebook and Twitter and he himself has been told to look at for the truth but has either chosen to ignore such or has continued his lies and defamatory comments regardless.

At the end of this call Darryl informed me he would most likely delete Paul Zenons comment from the group and inbox him telling him to make an official complaint if he felt the need to, something which I understand may well have occurred??

Anyway later that same day around 8pm my voicemail got a message** from Darryl asking me to ring him, but as I was away in Somerset I did not get a signal until the next day and consequently the first I heard that my lecture was apparently cancelled was when my sound technician and technical assistant sent me a message on facebook alerting me to the post by Paul Zenon (enclosed/attached) where he is stating he is delighted my event has been cancelled
which frankly to me illustrates that he purposely set out to motivate his friends and colleagues to complain and make negative comments on the Magic Circle group etc, all of which is hugely unprofessional, especially given the Defamatory and untrue content of Zenons and so I imagine due to his stoking of the fire others untrue allegations and comments.

Eventually on Wednesday 31st May I was able to speak with Darryl and he later sent a confirmation of the cancellation by email.

(**The Voicemail he had left me the previous night merely asked me to call him and did NOT contain any clue that my Lecture Had been Cancelled)

During our telephone conversation, Darryl indicated that it was not my single Fake Sheikh Conviction which is currently being appealed and which is also the subject of me currently suing Rupert Murdoch for Millions as fully explained at the site of that was the major issue..

He also indicated that it was not Zenons allegations of me stealing other peoples material which was the major issue and which for the record is something that I fully explained to Darryl on the phone and again is NOT as Zenon would like people to falsely believe.

Rather I was told that female members of the Circle has kicked up a stink about my Book “Hypnotism & Sex” saying it was Sexist against Woman and encouraged people (men) to force women into Sex against their will, both of which are completely untrue.

The book in question is this one:

I will directly quote the advert copy for the book in question below on the next page:

Hypnotism & Sex – How To Get Laid 365+ Times A Year: The Art of Speed Hypnotic Seduction & Hypnosis PUA Attraction

In this Shocking and often controversial book International Hypnotist Jonathan Royle (formerly known as Alex-Leroy) reveals many tried, tested and proven to work secrets of Body Language, Psychological Trickery, Verbal Persuasion and other proven ways to achieve Sexcess.

You will learn the Art of Speed Hypnotic Seduction, Mastering your Inner Game as a PUA Pick Up Artist and much, much more.

Whether your Male or Female, Straight, Gay or Bisexual this book can truly help you achieve the reality of getting Laid 365+ Times a Year with different Sexual Partners.

Due to the powerful contents of this book, it is sold for entertainment and informational research purposes only and by purchasing you agree that should you use any of the contents it is entirely at your own risk and your own responsibility.

If you ever wanted to know how to develop a truly hypnotic personality and magnetic attraction of sexual partners this is the book for you.

It also has a useful guide to using Self-Hypnosis in order to overcome Habits, Fears, Addictions and of course Sexual Problems.

And there are proven Strategies and Techniques to enable you to become the best lover that your partners will ever have the pleasure to sleep with.

Combining Body Language with NLP, Hypnotic Language and Verbal Persuasion Skills you’ll be a true Sexpert after reading this book.



Whether your Male or Female, Straight, Gay or Bisexual this book can truly help you achieve the reality of getting Laid 365+ Times a Year with different Sexual Partners.

That sentence illustrates that the book is not in any manner Sexist and also not discriminating in any manner against any Sexuality.

Also given that Hypnosis DOES NOT EXIST (and the majority of Scientific Evidence around the world supports this fact) the book most certainly DOES NOT teach anyone how to “Hypnotize” people into having Sex or doing anything else against their will, so anyone claiming otherwise is either purposely lying or has simply not read the book and is making incorrect assumptions.

In any event the Controversial Publicity which surrounded the books original launch back in early 1990’s is fully explained part way down the page on and again on no level do I feel cancelling my Lecture on the basis of Hearsay, False Allegations, Defamatory Comments and Lies and at best distorted misguided opinions was or is in any manner fair.

In light of such comments I posted the following on my Social Media to help explain why my Lecture had been cancelled:

a) It DOES NOT teach how to Hypnotise people against their will mainly due to the fact that HYPNOSIS DOES NOT EXIST.

**More on How & Why Hypnosis Does NOT Exist is here: 

b) It DOES NOT teach how to make people do things against their will under so called Hypnosis…

c) It DOES NOT teach anything that could on any level be considered Illegal under British or any other laws..

d) The truth behind the “Controversial” publicity in the early to mid 90’s relating to this book is detailed with evidence and facts at the link of

e) The book is merely a Dating advice guide and book of relationship Psychology that just so happens to have a controversial title and attracted some sensationalised publicity from people who had not even read the book back in the early to mid 90’s…

f) The book mainly concentrates on helping people to develop more self-confidence and to take more positive actions in the dating game and is written with many sections covering stuff relevant to people of BOTH sexes and of ALL genders and Sexuality’s…

g) Anyone who is offended by this books title or contents, no doubt falls into one or more of the following categories:

1) Has never read it…

2) Believes the lies and BS published by Tabloid Newspapers..

3) Is a purposeful liar and trouble causer..

4) Has been manipulated by a purposeful liar and/or trouble causer to help them “fight” their ridiculous vendetta against me.

5) Has absolutely no idea what Hypnosis is (it does NOT exist)

But as I say PLEASE DON’T BUY THE BOOK if you have any delusional idea that it will teach you how to make people do things against their Will, Knowledge and/or Consent, because if you do you’ll be sadly disappointed

SERIOUSLY I’ve been told that it’s complaints and false comments about this book that have led to my Magic Circle Lecture being cancelled as per: 

Further reasons why I find the Cancellation of my Lecture so upsetting and unprofessional are as follows:

The day Darryl Rose Booked Me Over the Phone was 27th September 2016 hence I then posted this on Facebook the same day:

That is just over Eight Months before the date of Cancellation, which took place on Wednesday 31st May just 19 days before the scheduled event.

The date upon which I booked and paid for my Hotel Rooms was 31st January 2017 as illustrated by this Facebook Posting:

And it was shortly after that when I set up a Public Facebook Events page (now deleted due to cancellation of the event) where I advertised my Lecture to all Magician Friends and Contacts and asked them to also spread the word, explaining of course that Non Circle Members would need to arrange a Circle Member Friend of theirs to sign in, something which I understand a number of people had done.

Therefore as I said to Darryl on the phone when he quoted the number of “around 25” had said they would not attend, I strongly suspect the people I had notified about this event (many of whom I know rarely attend at the Circle but would have come to see me) would have made up for this.

In any event given that you film lectures and then members who are unable to attend can watch the videos of them, I know that many of my Fans and long-term repeat customers of my products and courses, who are located overseas would most certainly have enjoyed watching the Lecture by video.

I think the reviews of my past Magic & Mentalism Lectures speak for themselves as you can see here:

2016 Lecture Review by Stuart Harrizon Cassels

2014 Lecture Review by Steve Manford 

2011 Lecture Review by Jack Griggs 

Anyway enough of that, another reason I am so upset that the Lecture has been cancelled is that the excuse for doing so was and is as already explained so feeble and based on uniformed comment, rumors and assumptions…

One would expect people involved in the Magical World to be more aware of how the Media distort and sensationalize things as indeed is explained on the page at 

The idea that my book or my controversial perceived reputation in the business should lead to the cancellation of my lecture is frankly ridiculous given that I do not in any manner hide my “controversy” and rather trade upon it as can be seen at 

Indeed Issue Ten (September 2006) of British Magazine Magic-Seen has a several pages feature article on me which fully discussed my Controversial past as per: 

And Back in July 2005, Jay Fortune interviewed me on Radio Magic and we covered all the Controversial Stuff as it may be perceived by some. That interview was also included in this book which they also released: 

Without wishing to wear out my computer typing, my point is that I have been known World-Wide (thanks to 100’s of TV & Radio Shows and also National and International Print Media Articles) as THE BRITISH BAD BOY OF HYPNOSIS since 1994..

For fast approaching 25 years I have become known World-Wide for Controversy in all sorts of Arenas, THIS WAS OPENLY KNOWN AS PUBLIC KNOWLEDGE BEFORE I WAS EVER BOOKED and therefore cancelling me for such reason/s is frankly insulting, upsetting and in my opinion wholly unprofessional.

The day Darryl Rose Booked Me Over the Phone for this event was 27th September 2016 hence I then posted this on Facebook the same day: 

In other words I publicly started advertising my appearance over Eight Months ago.

For Eight Months Paul Zenon will most likely have been aware that I was scheduled to Lecture (my evidence shows although he has me blocked on Facebook he does monitor my postings as otherwise he would not be able to make comments about what I am up to as he has done in a defamatory manner on numerous occasions in the past) In any event from January 2017 when I set up the Facebook events page for my Lecture he would I am sure have been notified and/or seen that…

Further I understand that the event was advertised on the Magic Circle website (members area) for many weeks before this cancellation.

The Magic Circle Jonathan Royle Magic Lecture Advert on their Website

And so it seems to me that this was a pre-meditated and calculated set of actions by him to purposely get me cancelled at the last minute.

He most certainly relished in a most childish and unprofessional manner on the Magicians Only Facebook Group (and no doubt elsewhere as well) about my Lecture being cancelled.

Paul Zenon Gloating that The Magic Circle Cancelled Magic & Mentalism Lecture by Jonathan Royle

So to sum up this has upset and disappointed me hugely as Lecturing at The Magic Circle was something that I have aimed at for years….

I was looking forward to inviting Marvin Berglas along who used to be my boss and Marc Paul who was my manager when in the start of the 90’s I was the highest selling dem artiste for Marvin’s and sold the equivalent of well over 400 Svengali Decks in one day alone!

I was looking forward to performing, sharing and explaining my creations to friends at the Circle and also fellow professionals who I respect greatly..

As indeed I have also for years aimed at one day becoming a member..

Following these events it seems that neither will ever occur and that as I say upsets and disappoints me greatly.

I would appreciate it if my concerns, observations and comments on this matter are shared with the Council and for the record I am also more than happy for them to be published in the Magic Circle Magazine and/or on the Magic Circle Website and/or on the Magic Circle Facebook Group and to that end have attached this letter as a Word Document alongside the receipt images and such like.

I look forward to your considered reply to the contents of this letter and also to receiving reimbursement of all my out of pocket expenses as per attached invoice as a matter of priority.

Yours Truly

Alex William Smith aka Jonathan Royle

Once again SORRY to all those who were looking forward to this event and with whom I had arranged to meet up with on the night.


Within Seconds of me posting on Facebook that the Lecture had been cancelled with this posting:

Well within seconds of posting that the following got posted on my Facebook Wall:

Points to note are that not only was this clearly a Fake Account impersonating Danielle Bregoli who for those who don’t know is this person:

But also it mentions my book “Hypnotism & Sex” and by that stage only those in the Private Magic Circle Members Group would be aware that a few Circle Members had mentioned my book as being their reason for not attending my lecture.

This means the Fake Account was most likely set up by a Magic Circle Member..

I’m not able to prove that Paul Zenon had anything to do with it, but if it was not him that did so, then it was someone who believes the Defamatory Lies that Paul Zenon had posted about me as they make mention of CRIMINAL CONVICTIONS (I do not have multiple convictions, I have one minor conviction only which is being appealed as we speak and is fully explained at )

That previous post was followed up by the one above whilst I was reporting the fake account to Facebook.. the Fake account namely being this one:
And in a very short space of time indeed Facebook Suspended and removed the account confirming that it was indeed Fake:
In my opinion and based on the available evidence and timings of such posts, I feel it is safe to conclude that the Fake Account was set up by a Magic Circle Member as how else would they know what was being discussed inside the Magic Circle Private Facebook Group???

At the very least the person who did such knows someone who is a member of the Magic Circle Facebook Group (as I do) and was passed information of what was being said inside (as I have been in relation to this) and then encouraged to make such posting.

In any event is is both childish and hugely unprofessional, let alone the fact that what they posted has absolutely no basis in fact as explained earlier on this blog page.


For those who actually value such things as Reality, Evidence, Facts & Truth you
will find all the Truth, Facts & Evidence that you will ever need at the following few links and in the videos below that prove beyond any reasonable doubt that the idiots, liars and vindictive trouble causers who continue to post Defamatory Lies about me on the web and also encourage others to do so are the truly GUILTY PEOPLE in all of this:

PS: Yesterday I saw a Blog on Linkedin (see Link Below) Posted by Fellow Magician Craig Petty of Slightly Unusual which was/is entitled “The Magic Circle is Irrelevant” after reading it I realised that not having been in the Circle has NOT in any manner affected the success of my Showbiz Career over the past fast approaching 40 years (I started performing aged 3 and a bit in late 1978) and neither will it affect my career from now on so frankly I am now no longer bothered about joining and am more than happy to be an Award Winning Member of England’s 3rd Oldest Magic Society, “The Order of the Magi” in Manchester.

PEOPLE IN GLASS HOUSES SHOULD NEVER THROW STONES… (Some Things That Dr. Jonathan Royle Ph.D Hypnotherapy Expert aka Lord Alex William Smith Hypnosis Trainer Has Never Done or Experienced BUT Some Other Hypnotists Including Those Who Attack, Harass, Bully & Defame Him Have)


(Some Things Which I have 100% Most Certainly Never Done or Experienced
BUT Some Other Hypnotists including my “Haters” Have)


I Have NEVER Been Charged for Rape or any other Serious Sexual Offence of any nature by The Police anywhere in the World, indeed to clarify I have NEVER been charged for any Sexual Offence of any nature.

Therefore I have NEVER appeared in any Court anywhere in the World to face charges of Rape and/or any other Sexual Offence of any nature.

And consequently that also means that unlike some other Hypnotists NO British National
Newspaper (or any other publication anywhere in the world) has ever run an article reporting that I have been charged for Rape or any other Serious Sexual Offence of any kind.

I’ve NEVER Been Charged for any Drugs related Offence by the Police anywhere in the World.

Therefore I have NEVER appeared in any Court anywhere in the World to face charges of any kind relating to Drugs in any manner.

I’ve most certainly NEVER Pleaded Guilty to Possession of Cannabis at any time in any Court anywhere in the World.

And I’ve most certainly NEVER had to bribe a corrupt Police Officer in order to help myself get out of being Locked up in Jail at any time anywhere in the World.

And as a Stage Hypnotist I have NEVER had anyone have any kind of accident during my shows…

NOBODY at my Comedy Hypnosis Shows has ever, unlike at some other Hypnotists shows ever Broken any Bones or Cut parts of their body open….

This also means that unlike some other Stage Hypnotists, I have NEVER had to pay (either in or out of Court) any level of Financial Damages to people to shut them up and make them go away…

And consequently unlike some other Hypnotists I have NEVER been featured in a Newspaper of any kind where it has stated that people have suffered any kind of Physical Injury during or as a result of one of my Stage-Hypnosis Performances.

During the time since I started doing Hypnosis Training Seminars back in late 1993, I
have NEVER had anybody walk out of any of my events and I have NEVER had anybody
ask for or demand a refund for any reason and most certainly not due to them asking
me basic therapy related questions that I was unable to answer.

I’ve NEVER had to instigate Court Proceedings against anyone to be allowed to see my
child, as the Mother of my child (my wife and partner for the past decade) has never felt the desire to try and stop me seeing my daughter.I have NEVER and would never Defame anybody by publishing pre-meditated completely Fabricated Vindictive Lies and bullsh*t about them on the internet.

Unlike the Viscous & arguably mentally unbalanced “Haters” out there who are often
guilty of Internet Harassment and/or Cyber Bullying towards me, I have only ever and
would only ever publish or state anything that is backed up by 100% Cast Iron Facts and more importantly undeniable Evidence, and above all else would and have only ever
done so when I have been forced to protect myself from people who are by their actions Guilty of Internet Harassment, Cyber Bullying and/or Defamation of Character and therefore arguably committing a Criminal Offence with their actions & words..




Full Proof, Facts & Cast Iron Evidence illustrating beyond any reasonable doubt that
the rubbish these “Haters” post on the internet about me is nothing more than pre-meditated vindictive fabricated rubbish can be seen at this link:

Unfortunately Some People Suffer from Cognitive Dissonance (especially so it seems
the kinds of people who don’t know what Cognitive Dissonance is when they are asked
about it at a seminar they are presenting) and so despite the fact they have been given
all the Facts, Proof and Cast Iron Evidence that what they have published about me is
complete Fabricated Nonsense, due to Cognitive Dissonance they cannot bring themselves to accept the truth as it would be too Psychologically Painful for them…

EXPOSED: Dr. Jonathan Royle Ph.D Hypnotist aka Lord Alex William Smith Magician, Mentalist & Hypnotherapist. – (The Real Truth Behind the Defamatory & Vindictive Lies and the Internet Harassment & Cyber Bullying Towards him from others on the Internet)

So It seems that some Sad Individuals have nothing better to do with their time than to post Defamatory Rubbish and Vindictive Lies on the internet in a manner that is quite clearly pre-meditated Internet Harassment and Cyber Bullying towards myself.

If you’ve seen any of their lies about me on the internet then the contents of this page, along with the information at the links posted below will prove to you beyond any reasonable doubt that these individuals are the only ones Guilty of attempting to mislead and misinform anybody on any level.

In the first instance check out this video explaining the truth behind the main points here:

And now just before I give you the links to the evidence and facts that I mentioned in the above video, here are some images of my Lord & Doctor Certificates and a little bit more information behind how I acquired them all:

Lord Alex William Smith aka Dr. Jonathan Royle

Lord Alex William Smith aka Dr. Jonathan Royle

Some very small minded and based on their internet post either misinformed or purposely
vindictive authors of defamatory content have recently kicked up a right stink because I openly admit that I bought my Psychology Doctorate Degree Title from a now shut down non accredited USA University on the basis of it being awarded based on Accreditation of prior learning, Life and career Experience and also submission of a thesis on Hypnosis which is now on sale as a massive Encyclopedic book on Hypnosis on Amazon and from all major book retailers around the world …
(The Key Word there is FREE as there was no cost to get Ordained despite what some trouble causing liars have published stating otherwise) by The Universal Life Church (USA) and then obtained a Doctor of Divinity Religious Degree title from them.
I can only imagine how the heads of those people would explode when they find out that I also happily admit that I bought myself the title of Lord of Cork as shown in the image at
close to the top of this page.
It is Legal to get Lord added to your Passport and having the title Lord on such things can lead to Courtesy upgrades on flights amongst other benefits.


Revd Alex William Smith aka Dr. Jonathan Royle

The above image is of my Ordination Certificate from the Universal Life Church (USA)
in my birth name of Alex William Smith. The date on this one is 2004, but in truth I had
registered with them many years earlier, however sadly I lost my documents in a flood
and as I could not find any surviving details of my earlier Ordination I had to register again in 2004 just to make life easier.

Revd Jonathan Royle aka Lord Alex William Smith

The above image is of my Ordination Certificate from the Universal Life Church (USA)
in my Stage name of Jonathan Royle. The date on this one is 2004, but in truth I had
registered with them many years earlier, however sadly I lost my documents in a flood
and as I could not find any surviving details of my earlier Ordination I had to register again in 2004 just to make life easier.

When I first ever got ordained by The Universial Life Church as per I also took their Doctor of
Divinity Religious Honorary Degree Course and as a result obtained the right to
use the title Doctor or Dr. before my name.

For the record I took the course twice, once in my birth name of Alex William Smith
and again in my Stage Name of Jonathan Royle so that I could have Religious Degree
Certificates in both names, just like can be seen with my Revd documents shown earlier.

For those who may wish to take the Doctor of Divinity route, firstly use the link above to
become a Legally Ordained Minister of the Universial Life Church for FREE and then
check out this link:

I no longer live at the address shown on the above Universal Life Church Press card, however that is indeed the property that I bought 100% outright for CASH with no mortgages, loans, borrowing or finance of any kind being needed before I turned 30 years of age and the image below is the letter from the British Land Registry confirming that they had just registered me on their database as the owner of the said property.

As I say I no longer reside at that address, as the flat is now producing a rental income whilst I am currently living in a three bed-roomed house, although we are planning to move
to an even bigger property in the very near future.

On occasion, one of my “competitors” (and I use the term loosely) will come out on the internet and say but YOUR DEGREE IS NOT REAL  – Well guess what?

I openly admit that I bought it on my courses, in my books and on my dvds and openly admit that is was awarded based on Previous Life and Career Experiences and Accreditation of Prior Learning.

The Company, which at the time I was under the impression was a Genuine University
from where I obtained my Psychology Degree as per image below and also the BSc in Marketing Communications as per above image (after submitting proof of my relevant prior work and life experience, copies of my training products and also a thesis on Hypnosis for one and Marketing for the other) was called Chelsea University and the website they used at the time can be seen at this archived link:

However these next two documents show that my Psychology Doctorate Degree has been Apostilled by The UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office here in London (UK) and although this only proves that the Solicitor Who signed such was told that this was a genuine document and thus by signing and stamping it signifies that it should be accepted as such (a genuine copy of the original) in any Country in the world that is subscribed to the Hague Convention, I was tricked at the time into believing that this meant it was worth more than the Non Accredited Degree that it actually turned out to be and which ever since I have always told everybody who attends my events and thus this is also fully disclosed in all of my relevant products released since then!!

In other-words I have never attempted in any manner and indeed never would, to deceive anybody about my “Degrees”…

And the Solicitor also signed and stamped the Degree Certificate that he was presented by Staff of Chelsea University who were the ones that told him it was an original and
genuine document, I was in no way involved in that transaction.

The irony is that I paid several thousand pounds in total to get what eventually turned out to be Non Accredited Vanity Degrees, when in fact I already held a Doctor of Divinity Religious Degree from the Universal Life Church (ULC) in both my birth name of Alex William Smith and also in my stage name of Jonathan Royle.

And it was 100% FREE to get Legally Ordained online at their website link here:

And then it cost less than $100 to get my Doctor of Divinity Religious Degree in both
my birth name and also my stage name from their website the current link for which is:

An even bigger irony is that I have over the years taught and then received hugely positive Testimonials and Praise for my Hypnosis & NLP Teaching Methods and Content from such Medical Professionals as Medical GP’s, Cancer Surgeons, Dentists, Nurses, Plastic Surgeons, HIV Nurses, Midwifes, Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Counselors and established “industry name” Hypnotherapists, Psychotherapists and even Stage-Hypnotists of all types as can be seen from the small selection of the many testimonials we hold on file at the links which follow:

The numerous Testimonials here – speak for themselves…

As do the ones at the following links as well:

(Therapy Students) –

(Marketing Students) –

The above image is just one of the many, many certificates that I have on file which I gained by attending Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Hypnosis and related training courses with other Professionals in the Industry.

The above one is dated September 2004, and for the record I actually organised and promoted that event for the Speaker in question.

And above is another one from the same speaker from another event that I organised and
promoted (I gave the speaker a second chance despite the fact that some people walked out of their first event and demanded a refund due to their obvious lack of knowledge in certain areas and their inability to answer certain questions that were asked) this one is from May 2015.Notice that this is at least twice that this person has issued Certificates stating that those who received them could now call themselves “Advanced Hypnotic Consultant” and yet this is a person who has the audacity to criticize others when they do the same.
Shortly after this the individual stabbed my business partner and myself in the back and
ever since seems to have been on some kind of vindictive vendetta, which recently has turned into both Internet Harassment and Defamatory Cyber Bullying towards myself.

In regards to all the Defamatory Rubbish, Lies and Vindictive accusations this person (and in the past some others) have posted on the internet you would be wise to check out THE REAL TRUTH BACKED BY HARD EVIDENCE AND EASILY VERIFIABLE FACTS:


Are You A Member of Any of These Fake Organisations?

Well all I am going to say to that is the numerous Testimonials here – speak for themselves…

Some are trying to make out that this initiative is dangerous and have missed the point that its about PREVENTION and we will NOT be treating anybody with Suicidal Thoughts.

All is explained at the following link where the replay of a Radio Interview I did can also be listened to:



In regards to me having been Inducted into the “Hypnosis Hall of Fame” as set up by The South African Academy of Hypnosis, this is not some lie on my part or indeed anyone’s part and the truth of the matter can be seen at this link:



Some Internet Liars have stated that I have only ever done a few
Stage-Hypnosis Shows and they falsely claim that these were all in Rochdale.

Well the fact is I have performed all over the world and most certainly not just in Pubs as some like to make out, from Theater’s and Universities to Cruise Ships and Five Star Hotels, I have performed on them all, some clips from my shows can be seen at:

And also at this link there are even more clips…

And for those who look closely at those links you’ll also soon discover that “The Professional Organisation of Stage Hypnotists” – (P.O.S.H) has hugely successful Stage Hypnotist members all over the world and not just one member (me) as again wrongfully stated and published by some complete liars on the internet.


As I explain in the video below I was Bullied as a Child at School, However Fortunately now as an Adult, Online & Offline Harassment and Cyber Bullying are now considered very serious Criminal Offences as illustrated at this link:

Jonathan Royle aka Alex Smith Reflects on 2015 and Looks Forward to 2016

Hello There,

As 2015 comes to a close it is for many a time of Reflection, a time to look back on what we have achieved, what we regret not doing, friends we have made and loved ones we may have lost.

Then overnight 2016 is upon us and we all make “New Years Resolutions” most of which people stop keeping too within a matter of a few short days or weeks at best.

In that regards This 100% Free Virtual Online Treatment Session could help you make 2016 your best year ever –

Oh and before we take a look at what I managed to achieve during 2015, make a note in your diary that at 2pm UK GMT (9am Est) which is also 11pm in Hong Kong I will be a guest on Jay Tee’s 24UM alongside 47 other of the Worlds Leading Hypnotists as per:

I was delighted to be asked to speak during the above event which takes place this Sunday 3rd January virtually online, it will be great to add to the resume alongside the fact I was one of the Speakers on the Worlds Largest & Biggest Attended Ever To Date Hypnosis Training “The Hypnosis Event” and also the Worlds Biggest and Most Attended Online NLP Training “The NLP Event” both of which were run by Tellman Knudson and both of which saw me speak alongside the World’s Leading Experts in their fields!
