Hello and welcome to Mentalist Blogger


Mentalist Blogger was created to follow my journey through the amazing art of mentalism and explore some of the history of this wonderful craft.


Hopefully I’ll be able to help aspiring mentalists/mind readers along the way too!

I’ll also be doing my very best to keep you informed of what’s going on in the exciting world of mentalism.



Why a blog? Surely YouTube’s where it’s at?



Well I’m one of those guys who has a face for radio and I also happen to like writing.

Anyway everyone and their nanas’ on YouTube these days, so I thought I’d do something a bit different.


What’s so special about Mentalism?


Mentalism isn’t just my hobby, it’s my passion too!


It has saved me from a stereotypical boring existence.

You know the one; wake up, go to work, come home, watch TV, then go to bed, only to repeat the cycle every single weekday!


I found that mentalism has really helped me through some very dark times.

Now I’m not one of those people who jumped on the mental health bandwagon, so they can appeal to the masses.



I’ve been a sufferer of poor mental health  for as long as I can remember and I really believe that involving myself in the performing arts was the best possible thing I could have ever done to positively affect my mental health.


Mentalism has been a great way for me to connect with some pretty awesome people, it is also a great set of skills to have.

Not only for entertaining people, but for other areas of your life too, like building confidence and helping others.


Mentalism is very powerful and you can easily gain many friends from all different walks of life once you embrace the community.


I’ve got some great plans for this blog… Interviews, reviews, tips, tricks, competitions, and anything else I deem fit for mystery performers and entertainers!


So if Mentalism (and maybe even magic) is your thing, or even if you’d just like to learn a few tricks, then stick around and don’t forget to subscribe to my newsletter.



Ok now that’s out of the way, make yourself comfortable, have a look around and read a few posts.
