He clearly states he has no psychic or paranormal abilities, yet proceeds to perform the same phenomena as those that claim to. He also uses a lot of power of suggestion tricks with hypnosis and NLP techniques.

Derren Brown started off as a traditional conjurer. In he performed stage hypnosis shows at the University of Bristol under his stage name Darren V. Many people use his material as a learning tool, and to back up their opinions on therapeutic techniques or theories.

He may, for example, be pretending to use NLP, when really he is using traditional magic. It amazes and freaks people out — perfect! You need something like a small ball, or rolled up socks or handkerchief. It has to fit snugly under your armpit. Find your pulse on the arm with the object under your arm pit.

You should notice your pulse becoming weaker until it eventually disappears. Your heart is still beating fine. You pulse is just blocked because of the pressure of the thing under your arm pit. To add to the effect, make up some stuff about visualising your heart slowing. Make it look difficult and it will amaze people! Derren Brown Secrets… The boxer In one of his shows, Derren Brown gives a demonstration using suggestion to sap the strength of a big tough boxer.

He has him stand still and easily lift up a woman. Derren uses some hypnotic techniques to suggest that he can no longer lift the women. Sure enough the boxer can no longer lift her. Was it the powerful suggestions that caused this? Many people were fooled into analysing what suggestions Darren gave, and how he gave them. Derren employs some sophisticated techniques from many disciplines in order to back up his illusions. He is so convincing that he fools experts in many fields.

I see countless discussions on the internet about his psychological techniques, and how he uses them to influence people. People forget that he is an entertainer and a magician. The invisible touch Derren does a trick with a group of friends. One is blindfolded and he taps his finger at their arm without touching. The friends insist that he never actually touched. This trick was achieved with some simple misdirection and clever timing. Hypnosis Occasionally his tricks DO rely on hypnosis.

For example getting someone to put a needle through their hand, or convincing them they are drunk are possible with hypnosis. Seeing genuine hypnosis demonstrations can misdirect you into believing his other illusions are genuinely using hypnosis.

Derren appears to genuinely use NLP techniques when he persuades a man to give him his wallet. People know who Derren is, and deep down know that he would not permanently steal their wallet — there is some trust there. He may have tried 10 times before getting his take. If you filmed yourself asking people for directions, and then slipped in a request for their car keys, you will probably get at least one success — especially if they know who you are.

Messiah In early , Derren Brown travelled to the United States to convince five leading figures that he had powers in their particular field of expertise. These were Christian evangelism, alien abduction, psychic powers, New Age theories and contacting the dead. The fifth expert, the Christian evangelist Curt Nordheilm, whilst impressed by Derren, asked to meet him again before giving him an endorsement. His conclusion was that people hear things that support their own ideas, and ignore contradictory evidence.

Budding hypnotherapists, NLPers and other practitioners are doing the exact same thing. Many perceive Derren as an expert in their chosen field, and choose to learn from him. Whilst I am sure that Derren is very knowledgeable in these areas, he is an entertainer and magician.

I think there is something within us all that wants to believe he is amazing at using hypnosis and NLP. Like me, we are all still children at heart that want to believe in the tooth fairy and Father Christmas. Enjoy his shows, as they make compelling viewing. Enjoy trying to decipher what technique he is using at a particular time. But be wary — take with a pinch of salt what can be learnt from him.

Read a hypnosis or NLP book if you want to learn. They may not be as much fun, but they will give you a greater understanding. Our minds naturally try and find a single unifying method of how something is achieved, which is how he fools us so consistently.

There is no single explanation of how he achieves his effects.
