About Me

Hello and thanks for dropping by! I am McKing and yes, that is my real name. My dad named me after his idol, Steve McQueen. And while Steve McQueen was well-known as “The King of Cool”, I am not as great as he.

I am an average 35 year old who enjoys helping people find solutions and resources through the art and science of hypnosis. Now you might be wondering, how did I decide to become a hypnotist?

Watch this interview to find out a little bit more! πŸ™‚

Only read on after you watched the video above ok?

Hahaha well anyway, I learnt Neuro Linguistic Programming or NLP for short, and got certified as a Master Practitioner in Sept 2014. I learnt NLP because I wanted to improve my health, for self development as well as to complement that psychological aspect that I am interested in.

While learning NLP, I realized the core therapeutic techniques of NLP came from hypnotherapy. So I got curious and decided to learn Conversational Hypnotherapy, getting the certification in Jan 2015. The course blew me away with how I could use these skillsets to first and foremost, fix the issues in my mind.

Thank you for reading this far, for I am about to share some personal issues I used to have.

You see, I had developed Post Traumatic Stress Disorder due to unforeseen circumstances, depression, and anxiety. I also had low self esteem, fears and phobias, among other things. And learning NLP and Hypnosis helped me to resolve these issues! That was the main reason I spent $10s of thousands on such courses. It was for my life.

And after healing the mental and traumatic issues I had, I had a lightbulb moment. Why not use these skills and techniques to help other people? Because I know it works; it has done so for me! πŸ™‚

I started my journey helping people like me. People who had PTSD or anxiety, low self esteem or fears, etc because I know how it feels, to be alone and no one to talk to, no one who truly listens. People who believed no one can help.

Well, at least you know I’ve been there, I’ve lived through it for years, and I’ve survived. So you and I both know it definitely works, otherwise I probably wouldn’t be talking to you right now.

I’ve been there and survived.

Lee McKing in The New Paper, his book "Because I'm Introvert" and his marketing materials

Since starting in 2015, it has been such a journey. I have been featured and interviewed (like above) in videos, as well in The New Paper, M Lifestyle, Vanilla Luxury, Yellow Pages or even business and health blogs. In 2018, I was featured in StyleGuide, Empirics Asia (formerly known as The Asian Entrepreneur), Millennials of Singapore, and even in a unique video interview on Toggle! I am also a co author of my own books, “Because I’m Introvert” as well as “The Better Business Book“, and “Activate Your Life“! 

Now in 2019, things got really interesting. Two people came to interview me and experience hypnosis. One was open minded and seeking change, the other (who text me in Whatsapp after the session that he actually wasn’t ready for change) was probably a bit more close minded.

The world for me also opened up to being interviewed with a demonstration by Shout, a podcast interview with Mindset Park where I also shared briefly about The Law of Attraction, interviewed by US magazine Valence Digital, and a US podcast interview with The Art of Adventure.

Of course, 2020 came with a bang with Covid 19 turning the world upside down! However, opportunities still came knocking on my door with 2 features in Chinese by a vlogger where she shared about hypnosis here and here, as well as 2 talk show interviews by MJ and K8 and interviewed by The Raygacy Show, and even a South East Asia Business award! It honestly blew my mind and I cannot express how I felt upon receiving such news!!! :O

I was also interviewed via Zoom by The Freelancers Academy, and imagine my surprise again when I was approached to hypnotise 2 girls who were a bit sceptical about hypnosis for another video! Last but not the least, I was approached by Mediacorp Channel 8 to share some tips about hypnotism for an artiste to portray the role better! It was for the show A Quest to Heal ζˆ‘ηš„ε₯³δΎ η½—ζ˜ŽδΎ and you got to watch it! Also, can you guess who I met?

And if that wasn’t enough, 2021 just started and I received another 2 awards, Singapore Best Hypnosis Provider and SEA Hypnotist Of The Year 2021! I was invited by The Royal Singapore to share a different side of my story (the one I usually don’t talk about) and there was an interview with Blissful Studios on the importance on eye contact in this day and age. After that there was a media request to do a Questions & Answers video regarding hypnosis, as well to share about Self Hypnosis with Frankie followed by another request by Mediacorp Channel 5 to share an Expert segment for a kids educational show!

After that was an interview with Enterprise Zone which helps connect global entrepreneurs, and then another interview with Vice.com and if you know how big that is internationally~ I was featured among the 10 Revolutionary Leaders too! I was also invited to share some articles for WeDevelopment regarding toxic relationships and suicidal thoughts. I also found out I was listed among the Top Hypnotherapy in Singapore!

In 2022, I was approached by Brainz Magazine to be an exclusive contributor so I could share several articles about hypnosis and how the mind works. This subsequently got me awarded the CREA Global Award 2022 for my contributions towards mental health in recognition for my thought provoking and innovative articles. I later was named the Hypnotherapist of the Year 2022 by ghp Mental Health Award 2022 as well as won the Best Modern Hypnotherapy Service Provider 2022 by APAC Insider Singapore Business Awards.

Then 2023 started with a bang with a new feature on New Year’s Day by lobangsiah.sg! Afterwhich I featured in the top 7 Best Hypnotherapy Service as well as the Top Hypnotherapy Clinics for Personal Growth and Transformation in Singapore. A writer for SMU’s student-run publication, The Blue And Gold also blogged about me!

From Sept 2023 to May 2024, I was the featured guest speaker to share about mental health with Irene from Goodswanderers (we have paused it for her to focus on her latest business venture! And in 2024, I was recognized as the Top 7 Best Hypnotherapy in Singapore 2024 as well as interviewed to share my views on how scams work! I was also mentioned as a qualified, experienced and popular hypnotherapist in this article. I mean, where are all these coming from? I guess I must be doing something right πŸ™‚


And now I work with people of all ages, with various issues such as mental and emotional etc, and help them to achieve their goals and outcomes. And it’s such an amazing feeling when I see the change in my clients, and when my clients feel the change happening, sometimes physically, sometimes emotionally. Think about it, wouldn’t you want to benefit from having more of the positive things in life?

I am here to help.

Essentially, being here means that you may want something from me. Perhaps you do not know or realize it yet, and perhaps you do. Either way, rest assured that I will always be here to help, and you can always email me at mcking (at) leemcking.sg to arrange a chit chat session

My style is, we do a chit chat session where you can share every issue you want to resolve with hypnosis and I share how hypnosis works. After that, when you are fully equipped with how hypnosis can help, then you can decide how you want to proceed

Meanwhile, have a look around and I hope you enjoy what you find! πŸ™‚
