David Snyder stands out for a whole range of reasons. As well as being a world-renowned expert on hypnotism he has a wide range of qualifications and experience in health and wellness. Based on this extensive knowledge he’s developed a whole range of programs to help people overcome illness and disability, or to improve their abilities right across the spectrum.

Among his other achievements David has authored more than fifteen programs on healing, self-improvement, persuasion and influence. He’s also been personal trainer to a broad array of people – law enforcement, martial artists, entertainers and people in the hypnosis community. His skills are highly sought after, and after talking to him it’s easy to see why.

David studied acupuncture and Oriental medicine at the Southern California University of Health Sciences in Whittier. Later he trained in stage hypnosis, although he’s never been tempted to actually do a stage show. While he often uses traditional techniques as part of his programs he sees their real value as therapeutic, not entertainment.

His knowledge of hypnosis, traditional medicine and martial arts – he has Black Belts in four different styles – gives David a unique perspective on the power of the mind, and makes him someone I was very enthusiastic about bringing into the show.


Please welcome David Snyder to the show!

Jump into my classroom as I answer the question, “How do you troubleshoot hypnotic inductions?” What do you do if an induction doesn’t go exactly according to plan? How do you redirect a client’s focus from a cell phone ringing back to a relaxed state? 

During this class session, I provided “bigger picture” answer to my student’s question – instead of trying to troubleshoot the troubled moment, use the moment to your client’s benefit.  

Remember, whatever your client is giving you at the moment is exactly what he or she should be giving you at that moment. It’s your job to step into the mindset and utilize everything that emerges for a successful result for your client. 

  • The more you interact with the hypnosis content, the more you will find that the induction is the easiest part of the process. 
  • There is no failure. There is only feedback. 
  • Don’t play the “look, but don’t see” game. See what is happening with your client and utilize it to his or her advantage. 
  • I provide suggestions and examples of how I have handled “difficult” induction sessions. 
  • Remember: It’s only a troubleshooting moment if you label it a troubleshooting moment. 
  • When all else fails – apply suggestion! 
  • Ask yourself, “How can I phrase this better to get my client to the intended result?” 
  • I explain the difference between a hypnotic suggestion and hypnotic aphasia phenomenon. 
  • Don’t water down your induction process by trying to play preventative maintenance on an issue that doesn’t even exist! Design your process to be effective for everyone, but flexible enough to add or modify for issues that may arise.
