Kevin Stone’s passion for hypnosis started in his early youth and grew steadily over the years. He decided to sell his successful business to pursue his lifelong dream, enrolling in the only accredited college of hypnosis, The Hypnosis Motivation Institute (HMI), where he studied under the world-renowned Dr. John Kappas. After graduating from HMI holding the degrees of Master Hypnotist and Certified Hypnotherapist, he furthered his studies earning the title Board-Certified Hypnotherapist. Kevin then formed his two highly successful companies: Mind Growth Technologies™ (the clinical side of hypnosis) and Deep Sleep Entertainment™ (the entertainment side of hypnosis.) Between his many show dates, Kevin Stone is widely sought after for his expertise in hypnotherapy as well as his impressive teaching skills. For example, he has volunteered his time in the capacity of “Senior Clinical Instructor” at the Craniofacial Pain/TMJ Clinic of the Otolaryngology Foundation at the White Memorial Medical Center in Los Angeles, California. He works with and trains physicians in the areas of pain management and TMJ disorders.

Kevin has been dubbed the “Sexiest Hypnotist” by MTV. “He dazzles his audiences with his wit, charm, charismatic personality, and creativity.” Kevin utilizes his artistic flair, talent, and showmanship to produce shows that abound with special effects, music, costumes, and props, making them “larger than life!” All shows feature full audience participation. The volunteer “STARS” of the show are given a special parting gift: Kevin’s own Perfected Mini-Hypnotherapy Session™, of personalized suggestions that they can use to improve their lives. During one performance, a man with a two-pack per day habit for over 35 years requested the suggestion to stop smoking permanently and he has become a non-smoker ever since!

Kevin Stone is able to induce great depths of the hypnotic state in his volunteers by simply guiding them into a state of very deep relaxation. This allows their minds to become free from outside concerns, thus enabling them to focus all their concentration on the suggestions given during the show.

Kevin states “hypnosis is not being unconscious or being controlled. It is actually very similar to the state of meditation. In this world of unhealthy means of altering one’s consciousness, hypnosis is a fun and safe way, not to mention entertaining. It also provides an educational view of hypnotism and fun without the mysticism.”

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
I started my journey as a Board Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist over 30 years ago and my first hypnotherapy clinic opened in the city of Van Nuys, California (“The Valley”). Hypnosis/Hypnotherapy was still unknown, it was considered taboo, a mystical thing. Religion dismissed it, TV, books, and movies sensationalized it, and most people didn’t understand it.

To pursue a career in hypnosis was extremely difficult when I started because there wasn’t a lot of education, public awareness, or the applications of how it can help in a positive way. What most understood about it was what had been seen on TV, at the movies, and read in books. It is always a “villainous hypnotist” hypnotizing someone rendering them powerless to do what the hypnotist commands them to do. The stereotype is certainly not the reality of how hypnosis works, but that’s what almost everyone understands it to be.

I have learned to turn my struggles into stepping stones. These stepping stones, in turn, create my road to success. I am glad that my faith in God is greater than my fears. Scriptures, prayer, and self-hypnosis are how I continue to face the challenges. They do not go away once you feel you have reached some sort of success. The goal is to continually push the boundaries and to grow into achieving ultimate success. I eventually moved my practice to Beverly Hills working with Hollywood’s Elite and with thousands of clients globally.

The path to success is never a smooth road, I am of the mindset that it shouldn’t be! If it is not smooth, does not have obstacles or challenges. The human condition as a whole would NOT respect, give passion and dedication, as well as the commitment to the challenge of being successful. It would be too easy if it was just simply handed to any one of us. Most successful entrepreneurs will tell you that the road is like being on a roller coaster of many highs and lows, twists and turns. By the grace of God, I am able to continue my journey!

My path has and continues to have many obstacles with twists and turns, people are becoming more aware globally of the applications of Hypnosis, my life’s passion!

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know?
I am a Board Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist and an Educator, Speaker, and Comedy Stage Hypnotist Entertainer. I specialize in addictions, sports enhancement, as well as pain management, and several other life-changing issues. I am trained in a variety of modalities, such as NLP, Dream Therapy, Positive Psychology, and of course Clinical Hypnosis.

My practice is my business. Hypnotherapy’s scope of practice is in the arena of avocational, vocational, or self-improvement; it does not offer therapy for emotional and mental disorders. (California Business and Professions Code Section 4996.14; Business and Professions Code Section 2908.)

I help everyone who is interested to enhance their professional or personal life. They know that there’s no top to the mountain; they are eager to continue to grow and learn.

I help everyone who struggles with fears, stress, weight loss, and/or smoking cessation, enhanced performance, sleep issues, health, fear of flying, general anxiety, and panic attacks, correcting addictive behavior, and amplifying performance. Applying my perfected techniques, a hypnotic state can be achieved by anyone.

Hypnotherapy can assist people in making changes more quickly and permanently. In addition, to learning several modalities, I am able to tailor sessions to my client’s needs.

Everyone who has a session with me leaves in an uplifted and empowered state.

What sets me apart from others in my profession? My passion, commitment, life experience, training, techniques, and commitment to continually be a source to give everyone the tools to reach their greatest goals and successes.

I believe that we are all born to succeed and win, however, we define that. We learn how to shrink, doubt, and play small. Whatever we’ve learned, we can also unlearn ALL behavior is learned behavior. I am committed to dissolving the negative programming that clients have learned and freeing their inner winners to achieve their maximum potential in life!

We’d be interested to hear your thoughts on luck and what role, if any, you feel it’s played for you?
“There’s no such thing as luck. Luck is where preparation meets opportunity.”
