Road Racer says hypnotherapy helped

William Dunlop and Janine

Road racer William Dunlop has revealed he turned to a hypnotherapist to help get back on track after his career spun out of control.

The 32-year-old, whose biker father Robert and uncle Joey both died in crashes, sought assistance after finding himself on the road to depression. But help from hypnotherapist Stephen Chan turned things around.

“I was lacking a bit of confidence. I had two really bad years with the bikes and people let me down, and I just got a bit depressed,” he explained.

“At the start of this year I went to see Stevie Chan. I wanted to go and speak to someone to help give me a bit more confidence. I just came across him by luck and that’s how it started.

“I’m a terrible person for running myself down.

“When I race the motorbikes I say someone beat me because they are better than me, whereas my brother Michael will say he got beaten because the bike wasn’t good enough.

“It was at the time that I was let down. I had agreed to ride with a team and I was really down at the time and it was just coincidence that it came at the same time as I met Stevie. I went to him to get more confidence but it was more – he helped me with everything in general.”

William, who with partner Janine welcomed beautiful baby daughter Ella into the world last July, said he wasn’t battling depression, but was just beaten down by what life was throwing at him.

“I wouldn’t have been at the stage where I see people who really have problems,” he said.

“I have a good life, I am very lucky that I have a beautiful daughter and a girlfriend (left).

“I was never at a stage that my life was terrible, it was just that my career had gone bad. I was at the stage where, financially, I was having problems. I have a mortgage, we had the baby. I was getting a bit down, run down more than anything.

“Career-wise I just had two or three really bad years.

“It wasn’t jealousy, but my brother Michael was doing really well and I thought: he’s no better than me but he’s winning. I barely could afford to ride my bikes and it was at that stage I was thinking of quitting. I couldn’t afford to do it anymore. And Michael was having success and it started to get to me. I just thought, being a bit soft, what have I done to deserve this?”

Declassified Files-Did Soviet Union Mastered Mind Control?

Declassified documents from the 1970s have revealed the US government were certain the Soviet Union had mastered telepathy, hypnosis and dream infiltration, a la Hollywood blockbuster Inception.

A recently declassified Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) report documents the numerous ways the US government believed the Soviet Union could attack or influence small groups of people via paranormal means.

Published in 1972, “Controlled Offensive Behavior” details apparent Soviet advances in telepathy, dream infiltration and hypnosis.


“There have been persistent reports of unusual flashing lights emanating from Soviet naval vessels and long-range aircraft. Such activities have coincided with US and NATO surveillance operations, conducted from interceptor aircraft and naval vessels. In some cases, personnel have been temporarily blinded and disorientated by various intensities of colors of continuous or intermittently flashing lights during nocturnal missions,” the report stated.

The authors go on to suggest such incidents indicate the Soviets “have not overlooked the possibility of utilizing bright, flashing lights as a means of altering behavior,” and it was “interesting to note” these reports coincide with an alleged period of active research into mind control in Soviet laboratories.

One such incident in 1968 involved a night watch officer aboard the HMS Valiant being temporarily blinded by a blue light shone from a Kotlin destroyer.

“When his vision recovered, he reported perceiving red lights, [which] appeared to be portable. Several pinpoint bursts of amber and amber-green light were noticed aft of the spotlight and shined in concert with it,” the report added.

The use of colorful, flashing lights to distract or disorient targets has a long-established history in warfare — strobe lights were commonly employed by Axis and Allied militaries alike to blind enemy pilots.Strange but True

However, the report connects the disorientation of targets to hypnosis and other forms of mind control, rather than conclude the events were basic surveillance disruption methods, in a subsection titled “Psycho-optics.”

“The Soviets have already experimented with the use of flashing lights for the purpose of eliciting behavioral change in human targets, [and the] interactions of sound, light, and olfactory stimuli in humans. It can now be assessed that in the next 15 years, [the Soviet Union] may develop a system that alters behavior by combining two or more systems to mask the use of the principal weapon, e.g. the administration of a pheromone or psychotropic compound,” the report alleged.

The authors note a 1957 symposium in the US concluded strobe lights and other flicker effects can create disruptions in humans, inducing “sleep, unconsciousness, hypnotic states, or other forms of interference with consciousness.” Other possible effects of flickering lights included eyeball and headaches, and inducement of “visual illusions” including color sensations, patterns of movement and development of odd shapes.”The report moreover suggested the Soviets’ primary interest was red light, a hue that would reportedly produce tension, irritability, and aggression — and presumably a greater affinity for communism.

Inception Plot

Perhaps most notably, a separate excerpt outlines the DIA’s fears of Soviet psychic abilities — in particular “telepathic hypnosis,” which allegedly allowed the USSR to telepathically induce sleep in individuals and then rouse them from over 1,000 miles away. “K.O. Kotkov” — allegedly a star Soviet psychologist — was particularly intimidating to US authorities, given his apparently ability to “telepathically obliterate an experimental subject’s consciousness.”

Parapsychologists in Leningrad and Moscow were said to be involved in the telepathic manipulation of consciousness, and the authors ask what individuals might experience in their Soviet-induced sleep — would they “simply dream their own private dreams,” or “does someone else hold sway?””The Soviets have not divulged details of their manipulation of consciousness. Doctor Stefan Manczarski feels telepathy can be amplified like radio waves. Telepathy could then become a subtle new modus for the ‘influencers’ of the world. What about telepathy someday becoming a tool for influencing people?

“This new field of telepathy will open up new avenues for spreading propaganda, and one could telepathically hypnotize an individual [to] steal classified documents or detonate important military equipment. The mission is accomplished and individual does not even know they have done anything,” the report speculated.

How to deal with irritable bowel syndrome

No one likes talking about their bowel movements, but one in 10 Australians suffer from irritable bowel syndrome, a condition that can bring abdominal pain as well as irregular and unexpected bowel movements.

Professor Jane Andrews, Senior Gastroenterologist at the Royal Adelaide Hospital, joins Life Matters to discuss a screening test she thinks needs to made available to more patients. This may help speed up the diagnosis process, so that patients can get on with trying different treatments, which include changes in diet and hypnotherapy. Some people dealing with IBS also share their experiences.
