''As a professional hypnotherapist I am very selective about the hypnosis trainings I undertake.  When I came across this training in Mesmerism, Fascination and Presence Skills I hoped that I might learn techniques to increase the speed, efficacy and reliability of my hypnotic inductions.  Over the last 12 months, since I took the training, I have worked with hundreds of new clients using the techniques I learned on the course.  In that time I have not had a single failed induction.  In fact, the degree of presence I learned to project during the course has completely transformed my practice – more than any other training I have ever taken.  I’m actually repeating the course this year because I found it so valuable.  I highly recommend this course to anyone working in the industry as well as anyone who is curious about this ‘other’ special type of hypnosis''   MATT CULLEN

What a fascinating course ! On the ‘‘Magnetism , Fascination and Presence” course, we learned practical exercises to develop Magnetism and everyone in our group actually experienced the feeling of energy, which had always been somewhat difficult for me to grasp beforehand.. Lee is a master at teaching this material and everything was put into practice with demonstrations and practice of techniques including work with mirrors and healing demonstrations. Every day was packed with curiosity peaking material, the people who joined the course were all like-minded and we created a great atmosphere of learning and common interest. I can’t recommend this course highly enough. ADAM AWAN 

''An amazing training, so many things to take away and work with both for myself and my clients. I have experienced more energy throughout this course than I have had for a long time. Lee really knows his subject, it’s only a shame that the course had to come to an end. I experienced some great therapeutic techniques that had a dramatic effect on me and other students.'' NORMA BINGLEY

'' The Mesmerism course was a fantastic course ! Lee Gerrard-Barlow is passionate about Mesmerism and it shows in the way he taught , demonstrated and guided us throughout the course. Great organization and support , great venue and the most lovely bunch of people . I would sincerely highly recommend it ! '' FRANCOISE GINS

'' It has been an excellent 3 days. I was not sure what to expect but the whole course was amazing. I can’t wait to try these techniques out on my clients. I also feel that I could move forward the techniques with my clients giving them more tools in their box as well as mine. The presentation of the course was excellent value for money and from an understanding point of view. Lee is very personable and very accommodating in the way he delivers the course, he would make anyone want to attend more of his courses and hope there will be more in the future. Thank you so much for a very informative 3 days course which passed so very quickly !'' FRAN DUFFY 

''The whole experience of the course was really enjoyable. Lee’s delivery was excellent it was like lots of light bulbs going off in my head. Confirmation of information I sort off new but did not know where from. The group size was just right, we had time and space to  practice and explore the different techniques. The last day was amazing and so much information exchange but Lee did remarkable well with all the questions he was asked! Busy reading my Manual and practicing all the exercises now. Many thanks !'' SUSAN DELAMAR

''The Mesmerism course was amazing! I loved the class a great deal and found Lee and Niki as well as the students to be highly supportive and nurturing towards my learning and I so much appreciate that.  Even the little things, like sending a personalized letter rather then just a form letter to the group is indicative of respect and concern for the individual student.  I appreciated the class and Lee’s teachings and encouragement so much and i actually have changed so much from the class that sometimes I don’t even recognize myself. So thank you so so much ,what a trully great learning experience the Mesmerism 6 days course was ! '' CHRISTINA SHOW 

'' I thought the course and content was very interesting with excellent interactive discussions. Lee certainly is passionate about the subject which is evident in his delivery, attaining a good focus from his audience. He spent time explaining and elaborating on questions which were asked of him with patience to allow others to assimilate. He certainly has a vast knowledge of the subject. The exercises were very useful in understanding and integrating the application of magnetism.The course was fun to do and I personally now have more understanding of a subject which I was not aware of previously. The course was fascinating with a strong emphasis on presence and in the moment which gives a greater realization and awareness of the distractions in all of us when concentrating in the present. I would recommend this course as it covers non verbal techniques which can be integrated with other therapies as well as Mesmerism in its own right. I will be able to use it personally and with clients in my practice'' MARTIN  WILLIAMS

''Lee Gerrard- Barlow is a really passionate Mesmerist who can transfer the art of Mesmerism, Magnetism and Presence to you in a easy and enjoyable way. Lee will guide you through some incredible experiences. You learn to do it yourself and with success! I can highly recommend this exceptional course.''

'' Just finished the Mesmerism and Magnetism course with Arcana Therapies. It was EXCELLENT! I highly recommend it. I think it would suit both Therapists and Hypnotherapists who are seeking new techniques and approaches, as well as those who are interested in understanding these areas for personal development and growth. I’m in the latter category.As well as many practical techniques with exercises, we also heard about the fascinating philosophies and history behind it all. Lee Gerrard- Barlow is a wonderful teacher ! '' PETER RESS 

''The ‘Magnetism , Fascination and Presence’ is a truly inspirational and memorable intensive course, full of clearly demonstrated practical exercises and fascinating information. I found the teaching concise and very well paced, with much sensitivity indeed to the needs of the group. The recap of the exercises was very helpful and made it easier to absorb a great deal of information that was new to me. I loved every minute of this course, it was wonderful to be part of a great group and and I came away with new techniques that I look forward to using in my healing work.'' MIRANDA KINGSLEY 

'' Lee Gerard-Barlow is a master at delivering ancient practices that can be used in modern living. The 3 day course in Mesmerism and Magnetism has a strong emphasis on practising the art of Mesmerism, Fascination and Presence in real life. Lee enables his groups to achieve life changing skills. Its fun, well organised, intense, magnetic and fascinating! I will never forget the incredible exercises ,the class atmosphere and the value of Presence in what we learnt. Great to see ‘everyone’ fully engaged in the magnetic practice. An incredible life changing 3 days!''  WENDY SPENCELEY

'' Travelling a very long distance to come to a very interesting and informative course in Magnetism/Mesmerism was one of the best experiences in my life so far. Lee was a fantastic and knowledgeable teacher whose presence was powerful and enlightening. I met great like-minded people who I now call my friends and have thought me so much in just a few days. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and after the four days of theory and practice,and it took my knowledge of Mesmerism/Magnetism, Hermeticism and Presence to a whole new level of understanding. I would absolutely wholeheartedly recommend this course to anyone interested in the field! '' HAROLD VIJETUNGE

''I had a fantastic time last week at UK’s Mesmerismus course. Lee Gerrard-Barlow did an exceptional job of clearly communicating and demonstrating mesmeric techniques and principles. Thanks to his excellent tutelage and guidance I experienced some life-altering moments which far exceeded my previous expectations. Not only that, but I met a wonderful group of people and it was incredible to see how quickly everyone’s ability developed over such a short period of time! I very much look forward to the next course and I can’t recommend it highly enough ! ''PETER GORDON BROWN 

'' Having practiced hypnotherapy for 24 years and trained with several prestigious institutes, I can say that MESMERISM , FASCINATION AND PRESENCE is the most useful and enjoyable course that I have ever attended. The techniques are effective and there’s plenty of opportunity to practice and experience them. As with any course, it requires personal commitment and whole-hearted open-minded participation. The Mesmeric model provides a better understanding of them than a reductionist psychological approach. The course has convinced me that a huge amount of important understanding was sacrificed when Mesmerism was reduced to hypnotic suggestion, and that Mesmerism is part of a very ancient current of knowledge. The venue was pleasant, comfortable, and free from distractions. The course tutor , Lee Gerard Barlow , is one of the two most knowledgeable people I have ever encountered and unlike many hypnotherapy teachers he is not at all egotistic. He has evidently put a lot of time and dedication into this on a personal level. I fully recommend this course ! '' PETER LUCE

''The whole 6 days were absolutely amazing. Everyone there made the whole event so enjoyable with their different personalities along with their eagerness to learn and their willingness to participate in the exercises. 

The entire event just flowed naturally and effortlessly thanks to Nicki being ” behind the scene and in person organizing of us all”, and to Lee’s enthusiastic and energetic deliverance . His passion and immense knowledge  was so evident to us all and his ability to explain things in an easy to understand way, made the huge amount of the information he delivered, so easy to digest.

The learning was incredible, these are incredible techniques with real results! 

I have noticed that my peripheral vision has widened and become clearer as it has always been blurred. I have also noticed that i feel different (Feel very good, but don’t know how to put it into words) when in the company of other people and I have also noticed more and more strangers are just staring at me – both male and female . 

 I find the technique of focusing on my left foot extremely beneficial ,as it slows down my racing mind and I feel i have more self control , similar to like putting the brakes on my emotions and it helps to keep me more stable and aware.

 I have used the Gaze successfully on 4 out of 4 occasions for inducing almost instant very deep states.. The Gaze As an alternative to Hypnotic verbal inductions to achieve somnambulism or deeper works amazing .

This is especially great news for me as i now have the capability to work on non-English speaking clients and achieve success with them, as language is now not an issue and this was one of the main reasons for taking the course !

I have Great results with the Shock technique . I Removed pain and aching from neck to wrist.(2 attempts)…success . Removed a migraine (1 attempt).. Success

Removed lower back pain and shooting pain down left leg(1 attempt)… again with instant Success .

“Using Passes Only” Removed bloated stomach and associated pain (due to constipation)..Success ! I removed nervousness and body twitching (on very stressful person).. Success !

Distant Healing: “The Shock Technique”

I totally removed burning sensation and tightness in neck,on left trapezium muscle and both shoulders. (1 attempt)… with Success –Totally removed headache combined with severe pain behind left eye.(1 attempt)..Success

Also , Carole’s left arm was aching with shooting pains running down arm while we were in the swimming pool, so I told her to totally submerge the arm in the pool and i kept my hands underwater and did the passes over her arm.. with complete total success…Amazing

Overall great results ,great teaching and amazing efficient methods with range of application . I highly recommend this course and Lee’s teachings ''  PAUL IAN POW
