Stereotypes Exist for a Reason - A Cold Reading Academy Class

Hi, my name is Mick Wilson and I have been a psychic/cold reader for almost 10 years. I delivered my first lecture on the subject at the MIND6 Convention, in Newcastle in 2019. As a result of the ongoing great success of my S.E.F.A.R. lecture, I’m exceedingly proud to announce that I am bringing the lecture to the Alakazam Academy on Thursday 21st May.

Before you commit to spending your hard-earned cash, let me give you an insight into what you’ll get.

Rather than me sitting in front of a computer droning on and on, there will instead, be plenty of interaction during the class. I shall be giving a ‘live reading’ to one lucky delegate, Harry will be demonstrating his cold reading skills to show how easy this skill set is (I taught him only the basics back in February, in Blackpool), and I shall be demonstrating my ‘Hand Stick, That’s Not a Hand Stick, That NEVER Fails’ (not the catchiest of titles). Not forgetting, the chat room, where you can share thoughts, but most importantly, ask questions which I shall endeavour to answer.

We shall be covering the 6 basic essential elements of the 13 steps of my S.E.F.A.R. lecture in depth, from care and consideration, dealing with tearful sitters, knowing what to say and when, as well as eradicating the ‘hit hunting’ trap that so many mentalist/magicians fall into. These initial steps will give you the tools you need to get out there and give accurate readings as soon as the class is over. The best way to learn is to do it, so I shall be premiering my ‘21st Century Totem’ reading system I created with Stephen Young, which everybody can take part in.

I approach the subject from a ‘psychic reader’ point of view, as I believe instilling the cold reading skills in your mind this way, makes them a powerful random access tool to have in your arsenal, a mental sleight of hand as it were or as Dan Ives would put it, sleight of mouth. A tool/skill you can call on during a mentalism/magic performance, without having to think about it.

So, if you want to unlock and start perfecting a skill that you already have, but didn’t know about, book a place, you will surprise yourself more than you will anybody else at just how good you will be at the often frowned upon and avoided branch of our art.

My overall goal with the Academy Class, is for you, the delegate, to be the best you can be and hopefully, be better at it than me, it’s not impossible.

Finally, as part of the Academy Class, you will receive from Alakazam, various goodies I have created to assist you in advancing your cold reading skills.

Looking forward to seeing you there.

 If you’re in any doubt, please check out a few of the quotes I have received:

 Phedon Bilek -

"The Best Lecture on readings I’ve seen!”

 Mark Chandaue -

"An absolutely charming lecture that is filled with pure gold.”

Phill Smith -

If you've ever wondered how to do readings in an honest open way, then Mick's lecture is a great introduction into both the overall approach and the specific practicalities of doing them. Mick, is a great reader and he explains his philosophy and shares a lot of interesting techniques in the session without it ever feeling inaccessible or impossible to do.

You don't have to be psychic - you don't even have to pretend to be psychic, rather it's a masterclass in creating a very human connection with a participant, something that a lot of performers could benefit from (including me, lol). I saw Mick deliver this lecture at MINDS this year on his home turf, and it was great. If you can, you should check it out.

René Klein -

"What your lecture has taught me, more than anything else I have ever heard is, that a genuine heart is important, and you have one. Just getting a short reading at the Indian restaurant...the "technique" is one thing, but the impact it had was because you genuinely care about the person in front of you. I am so grateful that you shared that experience with me."

Chris Tennant -

 "Mick, has set out a path that anyone interested in readings should study.  Real world experience and genuine advice that has already made my readings stronger.  I don’t want to recommend this as I want to keep this information to myself!”

Colin John -

 "I feel that this is a bridge between Cold Reading and Psychic Reading. Nobody has bridged this gap before, to my knowledge. Personally, I feel Mick is as much Psychic as Cold Reader. I SALUTE YOU!! A MUST for anyone either side of the Bridge”

Roy Smith

Fantastically useful training delivered in a relaxed and easy to understand way. Having always thought cold reading was far too difficult, this in such a short time has given me the enthusiasm and confidence to start cold reading. The follow and support from Mick has been unbelievably good.

Graham Land

This was an excellent and informative evening. Mick is an easy going and personable teacher, yet the information provided contains many pearls. I will be referring to this again, but already feel I could manage a decent stab at this from a starting point. Definite five stars.

Thomas Wood

Really enjoyed this. Instils confidence for those just starting and will help you go and give readings quickly. Highly recommend

Everrett Chavers

My first time learning about cold readings an Mick made this very easy. I went into this thinking man I bet there's a lot I'll have to memorize but he makes it simple by applying thing to things you already know. Definitely a lecture you want if your new to this type of magic

Terry Morgan

Before attending this course I knew nothing about Cold Reading. Mick gives you the knowledge and the tools you need to start down this fascinating road. All the student needs to do is apply the information and techniques he teaches to start doing Cold Readings. Obviously the more Cold Readings you do, the better you will get at using these techniques. I was excited to hear that Mick will be offering a sequel to this course to help me refine and enhance my Cold Reading techniques.

Henry Ross

Neato! Really enjoyed this Academy...although Mick Wilson would probably be able to tell me this before it started...well done to all involved, another belter!!!

Phil Macleod

Great introduction into the art. Covering morals, readings oracles etc. Mick comes across as sincere, genuine and wanting people to learn the skills. Great input as well from the other guys for use and learning. Time and money well spent.


This was my first Alakazam Lecture, but it won’t be my last! Mick is an excellent teacher and was clear and concise with his explanations. I took a lot from this lecture but the main thing was to genuinely be interested in the people you are interacting with, and everyone will get more from the experience

David Macpherson

Thoroughly enjoyed this lecture. I purchased this on a whim during lock down I came to it with no knowledge or expectations on cold reading – only as a term I’d seen mentioned. Mick is clearly knowledgeable and passionate about the topic. The whole lecture was relaxed and laid back. The beginning of the 2nd half was brilliant, to be able to sit and watch a reading is an experience in itself, and I feel there is much to take away. I’m looking forward to trying out what I’ve learnt and see how things go. Thanks Alakazam and Mick for putting this on for us.

Garry Hadley

What a excellent night with excellent information cant wait for Mick's next lecture well done chap

Des L. Hayward

What an amazing insight into "Cold Reading", a way to enable all to feel better about an interaction, and make a positive time be more memorable than ever. Well done Mick.

Darren Woolf

As well as being hugely informative about giving readings, this lecture has invaluable wisdom about creating a sincere connection between a performer and their participant. I loved every second of this and already know I will be using it as a resource time and time again. Bravo Mick and thank you.

Tom Rolfe

Great learning that can be applied to performing readings and magic but also useful in your daily life. Using this information will at the very least make you a better listener. Highly recommend checking the course out.

Phill Evans

A great night with really interesting content. Something for everyone. I was particularly interested in the idea of using it as an introduction to Mentalism. I'm sure it would add impact as well as creating a good connection. Well done everyone.

Mark Foster

Great lecture. Never been into cold reading. This lecture however, has changed my mind. Money very well spent.

Jay Zentko

Excellent lecture. Learn from someone who not only knows what he's talking about, but really cares about what he's doing.

Wilf Archer

What a brilliant lecture. Learned a lot. Loved it. Well worth every second - informative and focussed.

William McGregor

I came to this lecture with really no idea what to expect, was pleasantly surprised. What we learned was a great start to cold reading. Great teacher is Mick Wilson.

Paul Frost

Another fantastic Alakazam Academy.... but, the best so far, by a long way. Mick is amazing, he had me hooked from the first to the last minute.

Ian Schollar

Great academy. course. Real workable techniques which can be applied to all types of performances taking them to another level. Mick has a lovely teaching style and I really recommend this course. I'm already itching to try this out with my locked down work mates. Thanks Mick.

Phyllis Gibson

I found Mr. Wilson to be very knowledgeable & personable. He has a unique way of developing rapport from the very start of his readings as well as with his instructions. The course is well structured and easy to follow. The 6 points covered, really give the structure of cold readings including the problems that may come up. Cold reading can be difficult to teach because so much happens in the mind of the reader. but Mr Wilson's method takes everything out of his head and puts it in mine. I enjoyed the course and would recommend it to anyone interested in becoming a reader or better at the skill. Thank you :)

Alexander Ross

I have only watched the first half of Mick Wilson Alakazam Academy and he has already enthoused me to learn so much more about the subject of cold reading and associated subjects. I am sure that the remainder of this course will be so much better and worth watching. Micks persona and approach to, not only his subject but to life is so impressive that I should strive to learn more of his approach and presentation.

Danny Marsh

Had no interest or desire to ever learn cold reading. But in this crazy world this came up and I love the academies. So paid my cash and logged in. Firstly Mick is such a charismatic person and so easy to listen to. Anyone with passion for their craft and love for people generally are. So I sat back and listened....and learnt. And boy did I learn. It's a fascinating area of our craft that I had wrongly ignored. I'm so glad I grabbed this academy and only hope that part 2 drops in the future. Mick is a gentleman and a genius.

David Bartleman

Excellent information, well-presented. Practical and immediately useful. I've been doing readings for nearly 30 years and am still learning - this is highly recommended.
