Rob Hadley

I am a hypnotist. I enjoy producing and developing amazing hypnosis shows. I created The Harlequin Hypnosis Show, and currently I’m working on some exciting online projects which I lead, and I enjoy presenting workshops and seminars, as well as developing technical and programmatic tools to help hypnotherapists and their clients. 

I am often asked to assist corporate clients with motivational support for staff, and training in persuasion and sales techniques. I am always happy to provide such services, where ever they may be required. If you have a particular request feel free to contact me.

In 2006 I founded Vancouver Hypnotherapy Inc., Canada’s largest hypnotherapy practice. After working with over 7500 clients I stepped back from this in summer 2018, handing the company off to my lead therapist, Kary Blaney. This has given me the opportunity to focus on my stage work, and online projects.

Over the last 10 years my company has worked with more than 6000 clients, providing a wide range of solutions for clients needing assistance with addiction, anxiety disorders, eating disorders and depression. More often than not my particular skills are brought to bear on issues such as severe addiction.

While this work is both challenging and rewarding, there is nothing more personally satisfying than seeing an auditorium full people laughing and enjoying a hypnosis show. Some people have said they find this a little hard to reconcile with the idea of therapy. I'm ok with that. In the meantime I am happy to continue doing what I do, and loving it.

I get asked from time to time to work on retreats, and to present workshops.  I am delighted to do this. Any excuse to introduce a few more people to the wonderful world of hypnosis. My team of therapists share my enthusiasm for this subject and are always keen to find new ways to get the word out there.


As with every show I work on, and every client I work with, my workshops are delivered to the highest standards.  You'll love what we have for you and before long you are likely to share my fascination of all things to do with the human mind, trance, and hypnosis.

Below is the first of three sections of a Soundcloud collections in which I am talking about hypnotherapy. It gives you a pretty good idea about where I stand on the entire idea of hypnosis and how it can be used.  If you'd like to listen to the entire interview you can do so here:

I write often and you'll find I also make Youtube videos frequently. After working as a press photographer in Africa for many years I find the journalism habit hard to break, though these days my writing and photography is more likely to be found in a blog than anywhere else. I hope you find at least some of what I have to say to be of interest and hopefully entertaining.
