USA Consultant ( ATLANTA ) "You're Back In The Room Reality Show" Fox TV Auditions February 2017

Barry Jones was born in England and obtained his teaching credentials at Newcastle University. He completed his graduate work in the United States and has taught and coached at universities and colleges in San Diego, Orange County, and Los Angeles. As a competitor in the Ironman Triathlon in Hawaii, Barry became aware of the “altered state of mind” that it took to participate in such events.

Subsequently, in a 21-hour biathlon from Death Valley to the peak of Mt Whitney, he experienced a 4 hour loss of time. Fascinated by the trance state, he turned his studies to hypnosis. Barry received his advanced clinical education through the University of California San Diego (The course curriculum is set forth through the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis and offered to physicians and health professionals as an adjunct to traditional medicine). Barry is presently working on a documentary Chronic Pain: Treatments and Its  Controversies

 Equally at home in the University and College environment, he has performed his comedy hypnosis show for venues throughout the US as well as OXFORD and CAMBRIDGE in England; and in his 2002 tour of NEW ZEALAND where he performed at student orientations at MASSEY, CANTERBURY, VICTORIA and OTAGO University.

Corporate Shows and Key Note Speaking


Barry has set the standard for corporate entertainment. He can deliver pure entertainment or a keynote address to be remembered for years to come. The founder of "Education through Entertainment" seminars, Barry creates a world of laughter into which he can weave your corporate message.

We all yearn to improve ourselves, to more fully develop in our professional and personal lives. In fact, all development is fundamentally personal, and it is from this that our fullest potential finds outward expression. And the outward is but a reflection of a deeper, inward development of the Self -- of the subconscious mind.

Changes in the subconscious mind are known to produce definitive physiological changes, in addition to the obvious behavioral reprogramming evident in anyone who has undergone this training and has tapped into this, our greatest source of personal power.

The simplicity and elegance of this link between inward change and outward expression in a trained subconscious cannot be overstated. It is the genesis of our behavior and a primary focus of any effective training in personal -- and ultimately, professional -- development.

Barry Jones, an internationally recognized leader in personal depth training of the subconscious mind, will help you tap the latent potential of your mind and let flow the transformative behavior changes you have always sensed are within you. They reside just under the surface -- you need only know where to look.

Barry Jones delivers his message in an engaging and humorous style, and creates a context in which these intensely personal issues are brought to light and skillfully directed to the unique life situation of each audience-participant. Sit back and enjoy as this master of the subconscious mind introduces you to yourself, the deepest and most important relationship you will ever know.

On behalf of the California High School Grad Night Entertainment Committee, I want to thank you for an outstanding evening of entertainment. Your hypnosis show was enlightening, educational and extremely enjoyable. I understand that the graduates (and parents) talked about your show as the highlight of the evening. Those fortunate enough to be present were treated to something truly special. The laughs were non-stop and your charisma, energy and professionalism was appreciated by all. You were sensitive enough to gear the show to the audience perfectly and you very aptly involved them as well. We would emphatically recommend your program for any event. My only wish is that I could turn back time and re-live that memorable evening again.
— Michele Mock, Cal High, San Ramon
Barry, Well.....once again what can I say? You were phenomenal and the kids and parents were absolutely enthralled! Barry, I do have one complaint though......the people who come at 1:30 to clean....and stop to see a "second" of your show.....end up in there with you till you are finished! If I can't find someone I just have to look in the studio where you are.....and they are there too! I had a mom come in today hoping there was a video of the show..... her son said it was so amazing. Thanks, just wouldn't be the same without you!        Janice Blaire San Marin Safe and Sober Grad Night


Sports Hypnosis

There is NO substitute for extraordinary fitness to play in competitive team sports. Of course skill work is imperative, but once your fitness level deteriorates so does your skill.

If an athlete does not have the fitness or skill necessary for a sport, no amount of hypnosis will help them. Hypnosis is not a panacea or an easy way out.

Most of the athletes I work with have a supreme level of fitness and skill; their minds, however, CAN lack in mental conditioning. This is by no means a negative connotation, it is merely a lack of experiential coping mechanisms.

Having said this, I also see hardened veterans who display a lack of confidence. There is a myriad of physiological reasons why an athlete has performance blues, and that is why no hypnosis session can be treated in the same way.

Every person has the ability to experience hypnosis. When I facilitate the process, it is still self -hypnosis and cannot happen unless the individual wants to participate.

All Hypnosis is Self Hypnosis

Talking with England 7s Captain Ben Gollings

Of all the players I met in my life, Ben Gollings was the most fascinated by self development. His leadership and influence for his team was profound in the 2009 World Rugby 7s Championships. New Zealand had never beaten at home. England, down by 20 points at half time with a capacity crowd watching in Wellington, rose to the occasion led by Ben’s confidence went on to to win.

I asked some of the other players about what was said at half time. By their accounts, Ben Gollings was SO sure they were going to win the game that every player was persuaded to his conviction. They told me they never doubted him, it was as if it was a given.

Your sense of self, your emotional balance can have a profound effect on others.

Considerable amounts of time are given to skills and fitness training, how much of your time is allocated to mental conditioning?

“Barry is a magician with the human mind” Marianne Berglund PhD Former World Champion 10 times National Champion, and two-times Olympic cyclist.

Barry, thank you so much for working with the women’s volleyball team. Students definitely experienced a new level of consciousness and mental preparation for an intercollegiate volleyball match. This new awareness and ability to practice positive visualisation will benefit them in areas other than competitive sports. Thanks again for sharing your knowledge and expertise with the womens volleyball team Teri Mc Farland Womens Head Volleyball Coach Palomar College, San Diego.

Dear Barry, I want to extend my personal thanks for your presentation on hypnosis and performance to the Golden Gate Triathlon Club. You were both informative and highly entertaining and captured the interest of the 100 plus GGTC athletes who want to maximise their potential. Your methods were legitimized to all of us when we witnessed the likes of Terry Schneider-Egger under hypnosis, who correlated her Ironman successes to this process. I would also like welcome you back to the bay area to speak again, perhaps at our end of the year banquet. I look forward seeing you soon. Sincerely Todd S. Greenhalgh GGTC President San Francisco.

Dear Barry, I just wanted to write you a quick note of thanks. Your presentation at SCATS gymnastics was HIGHLY informative and captured the interest of my gymnasts. I have been working with my athletes for over a year in hypnosis/relaxation techniques, and they have had their doubts on how it worked until today. They still keep talking about what they experienced. A couple of my athletes who always visualized a fall on the beam, are able to complete a routine under self-hypnosis without a fault. This had definitely reflected in very positive training sessions. If you ever come into our area to speak again, please stop in. Sincerely Taunia Rogers, SCATS Head Coach, Huntington Beach, California.

Dear Barry, I wanted to thank you for working with the Palomar College Basketball College Basketball team and to inform you of the results of your endeavours. After the hypnosis sessions and concentration workshops that you administered, our coaching staff recognised a significant improvement in our players ability to played relaxed in pressure situations. As we discussed before your workshops, our team was not shooting free throws nearly as well as most college basketball teams. Before your workshops our team free throw percentages was 64.28. In the weeks following the workshop, our team free throw percentage was 78.68. As a coach I know that free throw shooting is technique, concentration and relaxation. Your work with our athletes significantly increased their ability to concentrate and relax. A side benifit of your work with our team has been their ability to concentrate and study. All five of our sophomores on the team received their degrees from Palomar College and full scholarships to four-year universities. This is remarkable when you consider that many of our players are from high risk environments. I sincerely believe that your workshops on concentration helped these student -athletes be more successful. I appreciate your time and energies and look forward to working with you in the future. Richard C Johnson Men’s Basketball Coach Palomar College, San Diego.

Dear Barry, Certainly, I firmly believe that one can enhance their performance with hypnosis. I only wish I could convince “all” my athletes that it really works. What you do though is to get them thinking about it. Too bad you’re not on staff———imagine? Thank you again for helping make our team one of the Nation’s best Lynn Rogers Head Gymnastics Coach California State University, Fullerton.

Clinical Hypnotherapy

Barry Jones was born In England and completed his teaching credentials at Newcastle-Upon-Tyne University.  He continued his education in the United States and holds a Masters Degree in Health and Physical Education.. He has lectured at the University level for 12 years, and conducts corporate seminars on re-programming the mind for self-development. Barry is also an ultra-endurance athlete and a competitor in the Ironman world championship triathlon in Hawaii.

Barry is certified through the American Board of American Hypnotherapy with advanced education at The University of California San Diego through the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis. 

This is the foremost society in North America of professionals in medicine, psychology, and dentistry.  It is dedicated to informing the public about the therapeutic effects of hypnosis and educating qualified professionals in the use of hypnosis for the benefit of humanity and themselves.


   These answers are based on over 35 years of hypnotherapy. As in any therapy, success can be attributed to many factors. In my professional opinion, the most important factor is based on trust and the individual relationship the therapist has with their client.

What is Hypnosis and work & will it work for me

Hypnosis is a method of focusing your mind and then using your imagination and thoughts to stir feelings and to alter your behavior and attitudes. In a sense, in hypnosis you are altering your internal world. When you change how you think, visualize and imagine things to be, your feelings and behavior will begin to change

It is commonly believed that we use only five or ten percent of our mental potential. Hypnosis is simply a focused state of attention and concentration that allows you to use more of that potential and power of your own mind. In a real sense, hypnosis is actually the ultimate in a self-control skill.

IF you are READY to make changes, then there is a very good chance that hypnosis will work. Results will vary based on the experience of your therapist and, also, on your state of mind. I always tell clients not to intellectualize the process, but to just kick back and enjoy the experience. If you are truly ready to be guided, then the results can be dramatic.

Scientists discover how hypnosis actually works

Do you have to be completely relaxed to be hypnotized?

Not at all! But I personally feel it is more beneficial.

How many sessions will it take?

I like to think I can accomplish what I want in a couple of sessions. If you feel you need more time then of course I will be available. My job is to teach you how to help yourself; your job is to follow through with the tools I have given you.

Is an audio download an effective way to use hypnosis?

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) certainly recommends audio downloads as part of a treatment plan. The digital age has certainly opened up other treatment options.

Telemedicine has become increasingly popular as well as long distance hypnotherapy sessions via Skype or other modalities. My preference would always be an office appointment, or better yet, an appointment in the privacy of the client’s home where they will be practicing the independent sessions on their own.

Any audio download should come with an education on its application. I do not feel it is effective otherwise. Engaging the client in a such a manner that they feel comfortable taking responsibility for the process, and in understanding the process, can make or break this therapeutic method.

One Day Intensive Stage Hypnosis class 

June 15th San Diego (USA) & July 6th London (UK)

Barry Jones with guest speaker Bill Anapoell MD (US Class)

Over 100,000 successfully hypnotised and over 6000 performances 

This will be a fun, fast and comprehensive overview of stage hypnosis. Performing inductions is simple, in fact, Barry can cover every variation in 10 minutes or less. Evangelical, Instant or traditional progressive inductions? There is nothing complex or magical about them. There is no right or wrong! Use what works for you, AND realistically, what keeps on getting you hired back.


The American Psychological Association (HDC hypnosis definition committee 2015) seems to be no further forward with their understanding of what hypnosis really is. Whatever you learn and from whom, is always going to be open to debate until enough money is invested into peer-reviewed research. The academics postulate their theories and there are many! In the same way, the stage hypnosis community does the same.

Barry feels very fortunate to have Bill Anapoell MD as a guest speaker. An Internist at Scripps Mercy Hospital, Hillcrest, San Diego, Bill is passionate about hypnosis and its application in medicine as well as being a wonderful entertainer.


Being in front of an audience came naturally for Barry Jones. Twelve years of teaching at California universities sharpened public speaking skills and stage presence. Barry reveals comedy timing as his pièce de résistance. Like any good athlete or musician that makes a performance seem effortless, there are countless learning experiences a stage performer goes through to achieve a refined level of expertise.

In the One Day Intensive Stage Hypnosis class, Barry shares and elucidates how his learning opportunities refined his performance success. In this age of succinct information, the Intensive class provides you the basic skills to put on your own show. Many people like the thought of performing a show and probably have the skills to pull it off, but for ‘some reason’ it just does not happen. This course works on effectively addressing those mental blocks.
