On TV there has been Celebrity Fit Club, Celebrity Family Feud, Celebrity Undercover, Celebrity Name Game, Celebrity Wife Swap, Celebrity Ghost Stories, Celebrity Super Spa, Celebrity Survivor, Celebrity MasterChef...and the list really does goes on.
When you consider the celebrities who have had their own reality TV shows and all the magazines that focus on the lives of the rich and famous, one could say that as a society we have an insatiable fascination with celebrities and famous people.
So why not consider Celebrity Hypnosis?
Since it's not a TV show...yet, I thought I'd share with you some of the celebrities and other famous people who have been known to use hypnosis.
