How eruditely put Robert.
Having said that we musn't get up our own arses here. I haven't met a UK stage hypnotist yet who manages to earn half of what my local plumber picks up. And anyone who earns that much has to leave the country and zap drunken teenagers on beach holidays around Europe. I'd rather be with the gerbil.

Although on the upside we don't have to plunge our hands into the amount of sh*t that plumbers do Smile :-p

So where do you actually go to pick up one of these licenses? I'm not a hypnotist but am interested to know. Do you just go to the local council and say who you are and they give/sell you one?

Yes, but don't ASK for a license, rather enquire as to whether or not you need one for such and such a particular place. Most of the time you'll be told you don't. That's simply a fact.
But, if you host a 'non-hypnosis' hypnosis show a license is NOT required. You will however still need public liability insurance. That's also if you're only doing close-up magic or a mentalist act (for a fee).
I'm doing a show this evening at seven thirty. I have public liability and the council have already informed me that no license willo be required.

Yeah Muzz, literally just ring the licensing dept of the local council in the area of the venue and tell them you're a hypnotist and wanting to perform a hypnosis show.

They'll send you the relevant application form etc. Just fill it in and send it off with 28 days notice.

If you want in depth knowledge on whats legal etc you might find it here? I haven't seen the dvds so I can't say one way or another..

I'll second MP's mention of those DVD's. I should point out that I gain in NO WAY financially from the sale of them...

...BUT I was a guest speaker at the event and it was a truly fantastic weekend. So much content covered over the two days along with guest presentations from myself, Chris Lee, Harrizon The Homosexual Hypnotist and Nick Davies.

The weekend covered everything from hypnosis itself, to the worldwide laws and health and safety/risk analysis.

I genuinely believe this to be the most comprehensive hypnosis training material on the planet today.

...but I repeat that I am not being compensated in anyway for plugging them or selling them.
