About the Author Glenn Harrold
Glenn did not have the easiest start in life. From the age of 12, he often slept rough on the streets. Expelled from school at 15, Glenn fell in with the wrong crowd, and experimented with drugs and alcohol. After a health scare and a warning from a doctor, he took the necessary measures to free himself from his old destructive ways. Now in his mid forties, Glenn is a non-smoker, vegetarian and drinks only the occasional glass of wine. He plays tennis, practises yoga, swims, and uses self-hypnosis and meditation to achieve his goals. Before becoming a hypnotherapist, Glenn turned to music, and was a performing and recording musician who made his living playing guitar in bars and clubs. In his teens as a punk rocker he played bass guitar in a band called The Vagrants, who morphed into the Sugar Ray Five. In 1983, they won £10,000 in the BBC 1 national Battle of the Bands. They were then signed to a major label, released a few singles and appeared on various TV shows, but their brush with fame was brief).
Glenn’s interest in hypnosis came about after sharing the bill with a stage hypnotist. He took this interest further and studied for two years with the British School of Clinical Hypnotherapy as he wanted to learn hypnosis to help and heal rather than entertain. He began producing his first hypnosis tapes in the late 1990s, primarily to support his ever-growing number of clients. His passion for hypnotherapy combined with an extensive recording knowledge, enabled him to produce unique, high quality hypnosis recordings. Glenn is thrilled that his work makes such a difference to people’s lives. “I still get a real kick that so many people from all over the world enjoy my recordings and get help from them,” he explains. “I feel I’ve done okay for a kid who was kicked out of school at 15! It just shows the power of a positive frame of mind.”
His enthusiasm for creating quality recordings was met with success from the start. “When I released my first tapes in 1997, I had no master plan other than a genuine desire to make the most effective tapes possible. Much to my delight and amazement the tapes sold well from the first day, when I sold them to a local chemist store. I literally used to drive round to a number of local stores selling them for a fiver a piece on sale or return!”Glenn says of his position in life: “The most rewarding aspect of my work is the many emails, phone calls and letters I get from people all over the world who have been helped by using the tapes and CDs. I love hearing how someone has overcome a phobia or achieved a big goal using my CDs. It is an honour and privilege to be doing this work! My aim is to continue to develop and improve my recordings, and create products that have genuine healing qualities.”
