The Subliminal Artist is a Mentalist annex Psychological Entertainer and Hypnotist, he was formerly known as The HypnoMentalist. He provides great entertaining: shows-, lectures- and trainings- on persuasion, influence, psychology, hypnosis and the so called paranormal.
The shows and lectures that he, Raymond Doetjes, presents are all highly entertaining, astonishing and often with a wink to the paranormal. In his shows you will see stunning feats of influence and manipulation up to the extend that it may seem as if he himself has psychic abilities. You'll see him unmask liars, hypnotize people in a blink or supposedly read minds or predict the future; However as a down to earth skeptic he himself says:
- "The future can't be predicted but mankind can be."
- "Minds can't be read but bodies can be."
- "I don't believe in Char...latans".
- "The best suggestion is the one you are not aware of."
- "I am a Mentalist but I don't like that word."
- "There are three things in this world that I am in love with: playing music, acting onstage and technology. In this art form all of them come together."
- "What you perceive is not necessarily what has transpired."
- "Lack of confidence is a myth, because there's no such thing as confidence."
Raymond combines his in depth knowledge and experience of: psychology, suggestion, misdirection and hypnosis to bewilder the senses and demonstrate how we are all being manipulated each and every single day -- whether it's during your shopping trip, watching TV or at work, subliminal persuasion is around us all the time.
Not only does Raymond perform his skills he also teaches their core-techniques: hypnosis, body-language, influence/persuasion and suggestion. This way you too can become a seasoned communicator and manipulator. It's a great asset in everyday live to learn to communicate on a deeper level! It makes live easier and you almost always will find some leverage in any discussion.
He also coaches/consults other performers and Mentalists for their TV- and Stage work. He has trained and devised the demonstrations for: Michel Keck (The Next Uri Geller 2009), a single effect for Vincent de Vampier and Victor (Next Uri Geller). Plus Deborah (Holland's first female psychological entertainer in Holland's Got Talent). He also consults production companies like: BNN, EyeWorks and De Haaien on psychological- and hypnotic related entertainment.
He devised a wonderful combination of the most effective elements from hypnotherapy, CBT, NLP and some Gestalt Therapy called: HypnoCognitive Therapy. The combination of the best elements of these therapies provides you with a wide range of tools for you therapeutic purposes. It's the same as in his shows, it's the mix that makes it work, much like any good cocktail. This unique blend is also taught to other (new) therapists.
