I have used this on and off for a long time and it certainly does the business, but it's important to understand that the whole hypnosis thing only works if you allow yourself to relax and go with it. It's not a magical thing where you switch the cd on and suddenly you are in a trance. If you listen attentively thinking 'why isn't anything happening yet?' then it simply won't work. It's like lying awake in bed constantly asking yourself 'why aren't I asleep yet?'.
It won't be for everyone because to a certain extent you have to be able to get your mind in a relaxed enough state by yourself to begin with in order for the hypnosis to start working, but if you can just allow yourself to switch off and do keep listening to it every day for a month then you will notice real improvements. I was very skeptical at first and it took a while to allow myself to get into it but it was certainly worth it. If you're worrying about trying to make out every word he says though or are worrying what to do when you count down to zero then you're in the wrong state of mind for it to work to begin with. You really do just have to empty your mind and let it drift over you.

This CD really has improved my confidence and I would recomend it to others who have a problem in that area of their lifes.
I noticed a negative review from someone who thought it didn't work. But their problem was they were listening to CD and analysing it. Hypnotism doesn't work this way it needs to act upon the unconcious mind and to do this we need to let go of our normal everyday analytical way of thinking. That's the whole point of counting and if you wonder what to do after counting back from 300 you have completely missed the point.
My advice to anyone using this CD is relax and let it flow through you.

I bought this cd with a month to go before an important presentation, in the hope that it would help me conquer my nerves. I had previously had very bad experiences with public speaking - my nerves always seemed to give me away - as soon as I would hear the shakiness in my own voice I would know I couldn't experct the audience to have any faith in me when I appeared to doubt myself! I always felt so unprofessional, and would beat myself up afterwards for doing such a poor job, and I would already be worrying about the next time.
I listened to track two of the cd every day for four weeks. After the first few times, I seemed conditioned to get into the "trance" state of mind really quickly - I would wake up at the end feeling calm, but generally not remembering much about the whole thing. Paul McKenna tells us this is common. I began to look forward to this relaxing time in my day, and noticed in advance of the presentation that I was beginning to feel more excited than nervous - then eventually realised that Paul talks directly about cultivating this feeling! I began to have growing faith that the cd was making a difference to me, and this belief helped me to expect things to be different this time.
On the presentation day I felt a small flurry of butterflies (rather than fear gripping at my chest as previously experienced!), kept under control with Paul's breathing technique. As soon as I started to talk, all my nerves and fears melted away - I could hear that my voice was strong, confident and lively, and the rest of me seemed to follow suit!
For the first time I was pleased with a presentation.

Paul Mckenna's audio CDs are a great example of how a hypnotherapy session should feel. He doesn't claim to work 'magic'. Instead the listener should accept that the idea is to go into a trance, which is simply a form of deep relaxation.
You are not supposed to try to listen to everything he is saying and if anything I think the fact that he sometimes uses 2 voices actually helps to accentuate this point and allows you to relax and let his words flow over and around you. When he talks about breathing in and out you just follow your own relaxed breathing pattern. When he says count you can begin to count and then let your mind wander. Once you have achieved 'trance' then this will be possible and like many of the previous reviewers have said, you find that you have not literally heard all that he said but instead have let your mind go. I guess, if you did not go into trance and you ended up listening to this 'cold' like listening to a radio station, you will get very bored of it. However, for anyone who finds they can achieve trance, you will 'wake up' feeling refreshed and positive.
When you see a hypnotist in person they have the luxury of being in the room with you and gauging your reactions. Considering Paul Mckenna does not have this luxury, I think he has done a sterling job of making an audio version that should suit as many people as possible and carry them along regardless of how easily they achieve trance.
Every time I listen to his CDs I hear something else that I never heard before. Sometimes I go into trance quickly and sometimes I go in and out during the session. Each time can indeed be different. If you have listened to any of these CDs and are not able to go into trance then think again about what trance is... it is a deep form of relaxation.
