For the enthusiastic student who really wants to become an expert in the areas of seance entertainment and/or cold reading, Paul is pleased to offer his very special one-to-one workshops.|
Workshop A: Ungimmicked Mind-Reading and Enhanced Cold Reading.
Centred around Paul's books "Reader of Minds" and "The Psychic Cash Machine", this workshop will give you all the tools you need to provide wonderful readings, but will also be concerned with the business of tarot readings, where and how to find work, and perhaps most importantly how to combine readings with magic and mentalism. One of the main driving forces behind this workshop was to help out the many magicians and mentalists who over the years may have purchased many books on “how to” do readings, but haven’t found a way of incorporating this knowledge into their existing routines or places of work, or may still lack that little bit of self-belief in their own skills as a “reader” to actually offer readings as part of their repertoire.
During the workshop you will be taught all the skills that I have learned working as a professional reader - the stock meanings of the tarot cards & the palm, the art of "cold reading" and using barnum statements, the "spiel" I use to win the confidence of the sitter, and most importantly how to use your own intuition and have the nerve to trust it. This workshop also utilises all the skills employed by "shut eye" mediums, and instructs the student on how to take those techniques and put them to use in an entertainment setting. With this knowledge you could walk out in front of a stage, and without prop or gimmick provide a 60 minute stage mind-reading show. This stuff is that powerful!
I will also outline how to work as a reader - how to get private one-to-one bookings should you wish, how to get psychic home parties (very popular and great fun), and how to get into the psychic fair circuit and what to expect when you get there. I will also include insights (many of them very funny but true) into working in the land of the shut eye - what to say, what not to say, what people believe etc. As someone who organises psychic fairs as part of his living I regularly see some readers earning up to £400 for 5 hours work, while others do considerably worse. I know what the high earners are doing right and what the poor earners are doing wrong and all that knowledge and information will be yours!
I will also show you how to use your new skills as a reader alongside traditional magic, and how to use those skills to make you an "in demand" magician for the wedding and corporate markets (both huge markets). This part will also include routines to use in order to turn a "regular magic" booking into a tarot reading booking.
I will also teach you how to read palms. Equally as potent as the tarot and very popular. Plus of course when you know how to read palms you can deliver a fast and stunning reading anytime, anywhere - even if you're without any props at all.
And of course you will receive your free copies of "Reader of Minds" AND "The Psychic Cash Machine" prior to the workshop.
The workshop lasts around 4 hours, and generally takes place in your own home. The fee for this intensive, informative and practical workshop is approximately £150, depending on your location. For further information please contact Paul at email@example.com
Workshop B: The Paranormal & Seance Entertainer.
The Paranormal & Seance Entertainer workshop is based around Paul's "The Paranormal Entertainer" and "Jack the Ripper Seance" books. This is a 4 hour workshop that teaches the students all the basics of hosting an evening of un-gimmicked paranormal entertainment. Paul will cover opening routines and getting the guests in the right frame of mind, he touch on readings, and then gets down to the real nitty-gritty - glass moving (ouija/glass divination) sessions and the actual séance itself!
It will teach the students all the tricks of the trade and mind games employed by shut-eye mediums and séance leaders in order to give your guests a truly spellbinding night! And it’s all done without the aid of thread, magnets, white sheets, false hands or modelling balloons! Paul will show the student exactly how to run a truly "ungimmicked" seance and give you the confidence to make it work for you!
And of course you will receive your free copies of "The Jack the Ripper Seance" AND "Paranormal Entertainer" prior to the workshop.

Feedback from previous one-to-one sessions:
"For those of you who have not seen Paul perform he is a highly accomplished paranormal entertainer as well as being a well established magician. Paul has published two superb books, The Paranormal Entertainer and Reader of Minds and his tutorial is built around these books and embellished with his own extensive experiences.
Working through his books with Paul you will touch on all aspects of this type of performance including mind reading, cold reading, palmistry, ESP, and glass moving plus a host of other things. Paul covers everything you will need for just about any kind of event and the books contain a fully scripted séance.
If you have any aspiration to turn to this genre of entertainment you could do no better than take this training session. The price includes Pauls travel and the two books which are packed with his thoughts, ideas, tips and anecdotes.
Using this session and working with Paul's books I turned a planned magic night into a psychic show with only a small smell of magic!" - Johnny Whizz, Oxford, September 2009.
