Testimonials about David as a Hypnotist and Hypnosis Trainer: 

Anna Duer, APRN :       October 2021

Over the past few years, I have received hypnosis from David Chandler for two different unrelated issues.  The first sessions were about a year ago.  For 5 years I had been  experiencing a complex grief acccompanied by numerous negative emotions towards myself that would throw me into dark and scary personal spaces.  I asked David to help me work with and resolve this issue.  We had 2 hypnosis sessions together.  The first session was very effective.  I finally started to process the loss I had suffered and began healing in a healthy way.   Later we had a follow up session which strengthened and reinforced me on that positive path.  My healing continues, and never again have I entered that place of darkness.  I am forever grateful to David for guiding me on this journey of self healing.

My more recent hypnosis session, which started with an initial meeting a week ago, concenterated on physical pain I have been experiencing from a foot injury I suffered about 3 years ago.  That  injury accelerated osteoarthtic changes in my foot to the point that I am now bone on bone in that joint.  Since my injury occcured, my ability to exercise, dance and often even to walk has been limited.  I was accustomed to a very active lifestyle that I had been unable to continue on a daily basis.  After discussing the issues with David, we decided that my desired outcomes would be to lessen my pain and to increase the proper functionality of my foot.  The first session was an amazing experienece,  full of beautiful images, symbols, colors, sacred words and sounds, connections  to my ancestors, healing from past experiences and a strong hope for future healing.  In addition,  during the session,  David empowered me by giving me a technique to regulate my pain on my own.   I started using this technique right after the session with very good results.  The technique incorporates a special word that came to me during the session, which I use to activate my healing.  When I use this particular word, my heart smiles.  The day after my first session I had a wonderful surprise.  I was able to walk down the stairs normally (not sideways) for the first time in months.  I have scheduled a follow up session with Daviid and am very excited to see what improvments I can make next.

I am very grateful to David and his compassionate way of working.  He has a seemingly limitless set of skills that he offers to support positive change and healing .  I highly recommend him.      

Arthur Dean DMD Periodontist:
I can give the strongest recommendation for David Chandler’s Hypnosis Course. He is an excellent teacher, and the material is fascinating. He made the material very understandable. I looked forward to every session and put what I learned into use in my practice as a dentist.

With love and light from Elaine J: LMT  
I feel very honored to say that David Chandler has been my hypnosis teacher.  David created an environment rich with stories of how hypnosis has successfully helped people with a vast variety of issues as well as an in depth education of the history of hypnosis and step by step instructions on how to be the best practitioner you can be.  There were opportunities to practice hypnosis with classmates and invited guests all the while being gently critiqued so we could reach our highest potential for our future clients.  I highly recommend David as a teacher and Hypnotist!

With gratitude from Bill:
I recently decided to have an hypnosis session with David to help me stop drinking.  I had heard of people using hypnosis to quit smoking and figured I'd give it a shot.  After the session I felt wonderful-more connected and alive than I had for as long as I can remember.  For the first time in my life I felt free!  About a month after my session I had a dream.  I was dreaming of the type of situation I used to love-a smoke  filled room with candle  light, good food, soft music, and glasses of red wine.  As I took in the scene, savoring  the rich atmosphere, I heard a clear strong  voice that came from my subconscious stating, "I don't  drink anymore".  It was a very powerful moment for me. I realized the impact of the session had gone deep.  I haven't  had a drink since that session.   I am now comfortable with who I am--I wasn't before.  I'm happy, free, and excited about my life.  I can't  thank  David enough for his help.

It was suggested to David by his instructor that as a newly certified hypnotist, he offer a number of free hypnosis sessions.  Natalie traveled from Colorado to receive one of those sessions.
Here's what she has to say about her experience: 

I am AMAZING!!!!!  I cannot thank you enough!  David changed my life.  Without his help, I am 100% positive that I'd still be plagued with an uncontrollable phobic reaction to an ordinary painted face. I test myself and even point out the clowns I do see and say "oh my, that would have had me on the ground for 30 minutes and jolted me for the rest of the day"-even my friends can't  believe the transformation.  They've grabbed images off the internet through their smart phones to test me on the spot, over dinner at my apt, getting drinks....it is truly a liberating feeling to not have ANY FEAR! I spoke  to a psychotherapist who deals with obsessive-compulsive disorders and she guided me away from hypnotic  suggestion stating there was no clinical data supporting its effectiveness.  I wrote her back and told her  I did go and  I was relieved of years of Terror in the first 20 minutes of
the session-she thought it was outstanding!!!  I spoke to a therapist "off the cuff" at work one day, explained what David was able to do for me...By "suggesting" my memory (the root cause of my phobia" of my brother's prank be a calmer and less alarming memory with playful intentions instead of the alarming scary memory that it was-I quickly felt the undue burden lift from my memories. I asked the therapist "have you ever cured anyone of a phobia"?  He said, " I have a few times, but it takes a lot longer than 20 minutes.  I need to make some money too."
What David did for me was soooo helpful, so unbelievably kind and  generous-I can't  thank him enough.  He  did it out of the goodness of his heart, his intrinsic compassion healing my wounded self.  

Blaze Schwaller, Intuitive Life Coach:
I couldn't be happier with the results of my hypnosis with David!  When I arrived for my session, I was scared to drive further than 10-15 minutes away, just driving
to the session was a hurdle. I was afraid to handle highway traffic and I had to psych myself up to get in the car even to get groceries down the hill.  My trust in driving, other drivers and road conditions was at an all time low. I knew it was no way to live.  Something  had to change. In only one session, David helped me reset my emotional and logical responses to driving, returning me to the confidence I had felt decades earlier,  before the car accident  triggered my phobia. I drove away from that session a free woman!  I can now drive confidently, calmly and even joyfully anywhere I choose.  I have my life back.
Thank  you David!  I cannot recommend your services more highly! 

With gratitude from Sally:
David's healing gifts touch me deeply.  The session we had was astounding.  His skill, insight, sensitivity, quality of expression and perception were so impressive and took me to a place I never expected.  The realization and understanding he helped me achieve have transformed me, my vision of who I am and what I am capable of being.  And in such a subtle but dramatic way, I feel more at ease yet more empowered.  I am incredibly grateful.
