About David Wilson

about david wilson

I’m a classic people person.  I couldn’t live without people – my wife, my kids, my grandkids, my friends, my clients, and my audiences.  They are all so important to me.  So whether I’m entertaining, speaking somewhere or helping someone heal themselves, it’s all about people for me.

I came to hypnotherapy through show business.

When I was eight, a magic show sparked my interest in entertaining and mystifying people.  At the ripe old age of 10, I performed my own magic act at a birthday party.

As a teen, I became fascinated with hypnosis.  I saw a stage hypnotist and witnessed the way that people changed. It was amazing.

Later I became the cast magician on the San Francisco Bay Area version of the children’s show, Romper Room, broadcast on Channel 2 in the late 70s to early 80s. After that, I was a regular on the Cartoon Classics show on Channel 20 KOFY TV during the late 80s to early 90’s.

I was trained in stage hypnosis by the then famous Ormand McGill and soon I began performing stage hypnosis myself.

Ormand’s first love was the therapeutic side of hypnosis and he made a point of mentioning it during every performance.  It is what I prefer to do, as well.

I have been doing hypnotherapy since 2001 and have taught others how to do it for several years at the Palo Alto School of Hypnotherapy in Palo Alto, California, where I am an instructor and have my private practice.

I have a tremendous amount of enthusiasm for the subject.  I read as much as I can get my hands on.  Having spent most of my life in front of an audience, I am comfortable teaching a class.  I believe that one of the most important benefits of hypnotherapy is that it empowers people and helps them achieve their goals without side effects.
