About Glenn Harrold
International Million-Selling Self Help Audio Author
Glenn Harrold is one of the world’s most successful hypnotherapists. He has sold over 4 million hypnosis audio titles and helped countless people including many celebrities during his 20 year career. His hypnotherapy audios are well established as the UK's best-selling self-help series of all time and consistently top the self-help audio charts.
Glenn has also written many self-help books for Orion in the UK and McGraw Hill in the USA. He has produced hypnosis audio recordings for the BBC and Diviniti Publishing. In 2006 he was awarded a gold disc from Nielsen BookData for sales of over £250,000 ($414,000) of his best-selling title, Complete Relaxation. This is the only gold disc Nielsen have awarded to an author in the self-help genre!
In 2011 he was made a Fellow of The British School of Clinical Hypnosis in acknowledgement of his achievements in the world of hypnotherapy. Glenn has also been featured in the media on many occasions to give his expert opinion or help celebrities overcome their problems (see his celebrity endorsements below).
As a child, at the age of just 12, Glenn sometimes slept rough on the streets as a result of a highly dysfunctional and troublesome home life. When he reached the age of 15 he was expelled from his school. Soon after, he fell in with the wrong the wrong crowd and subsequently experimented with alcohol and drugs. At the age of 17 he had a shocking health scare caused by alcohol abuse and was warned by his doctor that he needed to change his destructive ways, or face an early grave.
Today Glenn is far removed from those destructive behavioural patterns. He is a vegetarian, a fitness fan, a non-smoker and is virtually teetotal. He plays tennis five times per week, enjoys swimming, yoga and meditation to focus himself on achieving his goals in life.
Prior to becoming a hypnotherapist, Glenn was a musician who found had early success with his band 'The Vagrants' (who later became the 'Sugar Ray Five'). They won £10,000 in the BBC 1 national Battle of the Bands in 1983 and were subsequently signed to a major record label. However, their fame was short lived after releasing a few singles and appearing on a a number of television programs. Glenn then began performing in bars and clubs around the UK.
Glenn’s interest in hypnotherapy and using the healing powers of the mind began after he shared the bill with a stage hypnotist. He became curious about how the hypnotist could affect the minds of the audience and how he could use the same techniques to benefit people rather than entertain them.
He enrolled to study with the British School of Clinical Hypnotherapy. After completing his diploma he opened a small hypntherapy practice in Kent, England. He also began producing his first hypnosis tapes in the 1990s to support his clients who requested recordings. His hypnotherapy skills combined with his recording talents allowed him to create a range of unique and exceptionally high quality hypnotherapy recordings for his clients.
Glenn is delighted that his work has had such a positive effect on people’s lives:
"I'm so pleased that so many people from all over the world get help from my recordings. I feel I’ve done okay for a kid who was kicked out of school at 15! It shows the power of a positive state of mind. When I released my first tapes back in the late 1990s I had no plan other than a genuine desire to help people by making the most safe and effective recordings possible. To my delight and amazement they sold very well from the first day."
"The most rewarding part of my work is the emails and letters from people who have been helped by using the recordings all over the world.
It wonderful to hear how someone has overcome a fear or phobia, or achieved something using them. It is a genuine privilege to be doing this
work! My goal is to continue creating hypnosis products that have genuine healing qualities and can benefit everyone."
Glenn aside from other hypnotists is that he firstly listens to what it is you want to achieve and then begins to dig deep to understand the root
of the problem rather than automatically blaming it on childhood experiences, which I have found other hypnotists do. I have found Glenn to be
extremely engaging with a likable and calming nature. He has a way of making you feel at complete ease even when you are talking about a difficult
subject. Most importantly Glenn has delivered, and for me that is the icing on the cake!"

"I did feel pretty rough for a few days
(after my hypnotherapy session with Glenn) as my body was missing the sugar, but that soon passed and I feel I'm finally free of my sugar cravings
and chocolate addiction! I tried a piece of chocolate to see what happened and it tasted horrible!"
Andrea Mclean - GMTV & Loose Women
"When it comes the the power of the sub-
conscious mind, Glenn Harold is the man. He is the UK's best-selling non-fiction audio author and for good reason. His books and audio
CDs/downloads have helped hundreds of thousands of people all over the world. If you allow him into your world, you won't regret it!"
Jason Vale - The Juice Master
"Glenn is refreshingly real. He's kind of 'rough
and ready made good' and his honest approach to setting goals, tips to de-stress and take control of your own life really ring true. The book
comes with an excellent audio CD too. Perfect for anyone who is put off by seemingly smug self help gurus. Glenn is the real deal"
Janey Lee Grace - Co-presenter BBC 2 Steve Wright Show
"Feels good to wear headphones and
listen to Glenn Harrold's Complete Relaxation."
Lindsay Lohan - Actress
"I'm so happy to have Glenn Harrold as
my friend. His work offers a wonderful mix of mystery, talent and genuine love. In fact, I reckon that Glenn is Britain's best kept secret.
Who knew that he was a multi-million selling author and recording artist? With his humble ways and his ability to act normal in a crowd, you wouldn't
guess it. But I bet either you or someone you know has been boosted by one of Glenn's many books, apps or recordings. And if you haven't yet been
soothed by Glenn, I urge you to seek his work out… Everyone could do with a little more Glenn and a lot less stress in their lives!"

I came round thinking I'd had my eyes closed for 10 minutes. I felt amazing!"

bottom of my (balloon) phobia. At the end of the session, he made me blow up a balloon, which I'd never done before. I felt
really good about myself."
