Paul Knight became interested in hypnosis as a young child. By the time he was a 12 he had read dozens of books about hypnosis and was completely captivated by the subject. As a teenager he continued to read and study everything he could about hypnosis from therapy to entertainment to the psychology of hypnosis. Mr. Knight serendipitously began his career while in college by helping a young lady quit smoking at a New Year's Eve party. That success led to more clients. While still in college he had built a small hypnotherapy practice. Upon graduating from college he completed his hypnosis training with Gil Boyne in Los Angeles. As a fully certifed hypnotherapist, he opened a full-time hypnotherapy practice in Denver, Colorado. During that time he began performing stage shows for the local schools and corporations. In 1994 he moved back to his home town of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. While Mr. Knight travels all over America and beyond for entertainment, he continues to maintain his hypnotherapy practice in Milwaukee.
