Hypnotist Paul Ramsay

Hypnotist Paul Ramsay


Paul likes to call it "Inspiring Entertainment." It's good, clean fun that keeps the audience laughing and leaves both the audience and volunteers with a greater understanding of how powerful and creative the human mind is.


Paul Ramsay is a two-time graduate of the University of New Hampshire. He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in English-Teaching (1996), and a Master of Arts in Secondary Education (2002). Paul taught English at a public high school, then entered the world of student affairs by returning to his alma mater and working in Residential Life. Whether in the classroom or on campus, Paul's goal was always to create opportunities for people to experience transformational change and gain new personal insights, and in his search for how to best do this he finally came upon hypnotism.

Paul earned his certification in 2004 through the National Guild of Hypnotists. He began seeking opportunities to perform at high schools in New Hampshire and colleges throughout New England. Paul quickly earned a reputation for his ability to connect with younger crowds while still putting on a clean show. He is one of the few stage hypnotists today who has three separate stage show formats, allowing him to have return visits without doing the exact same performance.

Paul has been featured on WMUR TV's "New Hampshire Chronicle" and appeared as a guest on 107.1 WERZ's "Ralphie and Suzanne in the Morning" radio show, 97.9 WJBQ's "The Q Morning Show," and CNET's "The 404" podcast. Paul has been a guest speaker at the University of New Hampshire, the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown, and he continues to educate the broader community about the power of hypnotism whenever he can.

Paul was recently selected to be part of the faculty at the 2009 National Guild of Hypnotist convention in Marlboro, Massachusetts. In March of 2009 he gained recognition from the National Guild of Hypnotists as a Board Certified Hypnotists, making him a part of a select group of professionals within the hypnotism community.

Paul believes that hypnotism is more than a way to entertain people, and his stage show reflects that. Paul has the utmost care and respect for volunteers at his show. "I believe that being hypnotized can change your life for the better, even if you're doing it for the very first time on stage and making people laugh. It's fun, but it's also powerful."

Set List

Paul's show typically lasts an hour and a half. The show goes back and forth between whole-group scenarios and individual activity scenarios.
