Hypnosis Bio:
Hypnosis is Dan Jones main passion, his mission is to demystify hypnosis and to advance the field of hypnosis and help hypnosis go mainstream and gain the acceptance it deserves.
Dan Jones set up the Sussex Hypnotherapy Centre in 2002 offering one to one hypnotherapy. By 2004 he was offering training in traditional hypnosis and indirect 'covert' conversational hypnosis based primarily on the works of Milton H Erickson MD. By 2007 Dan was offering unique training and personal development courses and a diploma course, quickly these spread internationally and were also being held on-line as live interactive webinars.  Dan was also offering Hypnotherapy via his Playstation 3 on Playstation Home using an avatar (virtual version of himself) and had been offering telephone therapy, but as internet speeds and connections increased he started to offer on-line hypnotic therapy via email, audio and video calls. As technology progressed, Dan also progressed, he created PsyEnTech (Psychological Enhancement Technologies) where he offered streaming webinars before the term had really become known or popular, he has created hundreds of hours of self-help products, written over a dozen books and made hundreds of hours of videos for self-help and training. Dan Jones is one of the foremost experts on the works of Milton H Erickson MD outside of the US with an extensive library of Erickson's works, his students works, and therapeutic approaches based on aspects of Erickson's work.
Dan Jones has written a number of books on Hypnotherapy including 'Hypnotherapy' covering all someone needs to know about hypnotherapy from what hypnosis is to how to do hypnosis and how to set up in private practice, 'Advanced Ericksonian Hypnotherapy Scripts' teaching Ericksonian hypnotic techniques and giving over 100 scripts covering a range of problems hypnotherapists are presented with, and contributed a chapter to the third edition of Professor Ursula James book 'Clinical Hypnosis Textbook'
Dan Jones has also created two Hypnotherapy tools 'Ericksonian Hypnotherapy Training Tool' which is essentially a client profile generator so that students can practice how they would treat a range of random clients, and 'Hypnotherapy Script Creator' which is a tool that allows a hypnotherapist to tick from a selection of options what comments best match their client and they then get a hypnotherapy script and treatment plan created tailored to the options they selected.
Dan Jones has been interviewed a number of times about hypnosis including by Antonio Perez for HawaiiHypnosis.org and Adam Eason for Hypnosis-Weekly.com

Big Brother (TV Programme) Bio:
In 2007 Dan Jones wrote the book 'The Psychology of Big Brother'. This book was, at the time, the only book on the Big Brother TV Show that explored some of the psychology of what goes on in the house. The book looked at how to read Big Brother house mates body language and non-verbal signal from the minute they entered the house to start deducing facts that were unspoken by the Big Brother house mates themselves. It also explained how to work out what things were playing on Big Brother house mates minds that they were keeping to themselves. Prior to 2007 Dan Jones was regularly interacting in Big Brother forums, and it was from these interactions and often making predictions in the forums that would turn out to be accurate and then being asked to explain how he managed to make these predictions that someone eventually suggested that he should write a book sharing his knowledge of 'reading' people.
Dan Jones has been interviewed by local and national UK press (including The Express) about Big Brother, contacted on a few occasions by Big Brother Show researchers and interviewed by a few magazines from other countries to comment on their Big Brother TV Shows. Dan Jones has also been interviewed on BBC radio about Big Brother by Dara O'Brien and has been interviewed by Big Brother bloggers including Chris Gray's Big Brother Website (this is a link to the audio interview, the site is no longer live).
