Paul McKenna Review

Paul McKenna began his career as a radio host. During one of his shows he invited a hypnotist to speak and thus began his fascination with the subject.

He is without doubt one of the most talented and successful hypnotists to enter the personal development arena.

The sessions offered by Paul Mckenna are different from most hypnosis tapes in their approach and I think this is way they are so powerful. Paul McKenna is a great believer in changing the way we feel about life rather than just changing the way we think about it.

After many years of research and the use of personal development products I agree with his belief. It is the power of our emotions which gives fuel to our thoughts and thus makes the mould for our personality.

This emotional approach to self improvement has now been adopted by many other personal development gurus like Bob Doyle in his excellent course Wealth Beyond Reason.

The tapes & cds offered by McKenna use very pleasent music and relaxing sound effects, which in addition to McKenna’s use of clinical hypnotic induction techniques create a profoundly deep trance. He guides you throughout the tape involving both the concious and unconcious parts of your mind. His post hypnotic suggestions are excellent.

He offers a wide range of subjects which all rely very heavily on changing your own self image. By carrying out a few simple, yet very enjoyable, mental exercises prior to hypnosis you set your mind to the task at hand. McKenna instructs you to visualise the person you want to be and see yourself in the situation you want to be in. He then asks you questions – like how would that person feel and behave – then he has you step into the imagined you. This is a very powerful technique for change as your subconcious (or unconcious as McKenna calls it) does not know the difference between reality and imagination.

This image is your blueprint for success. By doing the initial mental exercise in a concious state you therefore train your mind to view you as this person. It is then when you enter the hypnotic state that you can relax and do nothing because your mind already has the picture and will do the visualising for you.

Paul has become even more popular in the UK since his televised experiment using his weight losssystem.


Paul McKenna is the best in his field. He produces the best hypnosis programs ever developed in my opinion.

His best work so far is the book and cd ‘Change your life in seven days’. The book guides you through the process of change and offers some great insights into how the mind works. The excercises given form a foundation for change which, on their own, can bring rapid and lasting changes in yourself and your environment.

However, it is the cd, which acompanies the book, which provides the real fire-power!! If you use it as directed and put in the litle effort required (which is really very enjoyable) the speed of results will most likely astound you! By changing how you view, and more importantly how youfeel about, yourself Paul McKenna really can change your life! (although it will probably take a bit longer than 7 days!!!!)
