Work Smart Hypnosis | Hypnosis Training and Outstanding Business Success

Dan Candell has amazed audiences and clients through his incredible skill of hypnosis since the year 2000. He has hypnotized over 35,000 people in dozens of countries around the world. Dan’s hypnosis and coaching firm, Candell Hypnosis and Coaching Center, focuses on helping people overcome personal obstacles such as obesity and anxiety as well as break unhealthy habits like smoking. However, he frequently uses his ability to captivate audiences by performing stage shows for various events at schools, fundraisers, conventions, festivals, and corporate retreats. Additionally, he is the Vice President of the MA Chapter of the National Guild of Hypnotists and has received numerous awards and nominations including the 40 Under 40 MA Nomination and Motivational Speaker Award.

Dan is a “down to earth” kind of guy, who frequently injects his unique sense of humor into his hypnotic stage shows. Similar to television and movie ratings, he “rates” his shows based on his audience with cleaner (G-rated) performances for high schools and corporate events and PG-13 and R-rated performances for the adult crowds at night and comedy clubs. He is known throughout the hypnotic community as a “new generation performer” and has been featured numerous times on television and in magazine and newspaper articles. When he is not helping clients overcome obstacles for a better life or performing on stage, he can often be found developing and speaking at workshops, seminars, and providing group session events.
