But it couldn't be real, could it? A violent thrust and he fell into a cage. A heavy door closing behind. The sound of the starting engine. Bang! The gavel against the block now was no more than a resonance in his head. He lost the game. It was over.
From mindless delinquent to mindful hypnotist, Mark Anthonýs story take us from the criminal world of Southeast London, through many trials and tribulations to a successful career as one of Australia's most sought after Hypnotists.
A roller-coaster of family violence, children's home, expelled and suspended from schools, child abuse, drugs, crime and loss of freedom in the form of time behind bars; cancer, bankrupt, divorce and false accusations, brother of a murderer, and the power of a mańs mind driving his way out to a brighter life of love and success.
Mar&kacute;s incredible story goes beyond anything told before: a real emerging phoenix. Fatherless, poor, beaten, abused, arrested, belted, threatened, on the verge of death...Mar&kacute;s childhood and adolescence elapsed like the worst of nightmares.
The brother of a murderer, he lost four friends to heroin and was employed by an underworld figure. Treated like scum but trusting there was a way out, it was when the game seemed lost, behind bars, that Mark decided to change his life. It was an arduous path, rich in disappointments and great mistakes, albeit Mar&kacute;s life tells us that nothing is fatal and never everything is lost.
An inspirational but raw story showing us that, no matter where we are at, there is always a way up if we put our mind to it, "It's all about the choices we make".

About the Author
Believe me when I tell you, I wanted to quit many times, it has never been easy, and i've never been handed anything on a silver platter, but just like the quote from Sir Winston Churchill says "if you're going through hell, just keep going", and I did!
I now live on the Gold Coast in Australia, I have 4 beautiful children, I live in a beautiful home with my beautiful wife who I met on a ship, I drive a nice car, and have lived in this beautiful country for 15 years, a far cry from the council estates in London (housing commissions) where I grew up!
I now perform my hypnosis shows in front of hundreds of thousands of people, on some of the most luxurious cruise ships in the world, I perform in theatres, rsl's, clubs, i've appeared on tv, radio and performed for some of the most recognised corporate companies in the world.
I've traveled the length and breadth of Australia, and have probably seen more of Australia than most Australians, performing my shows, running my seminars and treating therapy clients.
My hypnosis clinic is becoming busier than ever with an expansion as I write this paragraph, with a client list consisting of not just everyday people, but many tv and radio personalities, millionaires and even billionaires.
I now have a training academy where I train everyday people to become professional clinical hypnotists and stage hypnotists.
My eldest son and I have a wonderful relationship once again after 7 years of no contact, of which I feel so blessed, i'm so proud of what an incredible young man he's turned out to be, and as uncanny as it is, he's training to become a Lawyer!
I'm not trying to impress you when I tell you these things, i'm trying to impress upon you, that "if I can do it, so can you!"
