Magic of the Mind

 

About Me

For many years I considered myself a “lapsed psychologist”.

In my mid-teens I regularly read articles on popular psychology – what would now be called “self-improvement” – and also developed an interest in psychical research. The common factor was the potential of the human mind – what “makes us tick”.

I decided to become a psychologist, and enrolled for a psychology degree at Reading University in 1970. The course had a strong experimental bias, and was far from the practical subject that I had had in mind. In fact, the course succeeded in putting me off psychology as a career, and I was talked into becoming an accountant! I discovered within a few weeks that I hated auditing, and as soon as I qualified I specialised in taxation.

With the increasing complexity of the UK tax system, due to messing about by successive governments, I eventually began to loathe my work as a tax adviser. In 2001 I was able to consider a change of profession and a return to applied psychology.

I started with an NLP Practitioner course, followed by a full practitioner’s diploma course in clinical hypnosis. More recently, I became interested in meridian energy therapies (MET), particularly Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), a versatile tool now used by many hypnotherapists, and qualified as an MET Practitioner. I am now an Advanced MET Practitioner and a Practitioner in another MET, EmoTrance. I also have diplomas in stress management training and organisational stress management, and I’m an NLP Master Practitioner and a certified past life regression specialist.

I now consider myself to be a “lapsed accountant”!

I’m also a keen amateur magician, and an Associate of The Inner Magic Circle, though I spend far more time reading and writing about magic than performing it! I have written for several magic magazines and contributed to several books on magic. I am also a proof-reader for The Magic Circle’s monthly magazine. Although I have a weakness for close-up magic, my main interest is in psychic and mental effects
