Hypnotherapy, Laughter Therapy, Coaching, 2010 - present
Dave Berman, C.Ht. has extensive training and experience in Hypnosis, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Life Coaching. He is also a Certified Laughter Yoga Leader, Ivy League graduate (B.S. in Communication from Cornell University), and a prolific author and public speaker.
Dave currently sees local clients in two Atlanta area locations as well as assisting others around the world via Skype. His latest book, co-written with Kelley T. Woods, is called Laughter For the Health of It and can be found on Amazon.
In sessions, Dave takes a conversational and client-centered approach, which means he builds a genuine human connection adapted to each individual. He commonly uses stories and metaphors, in the spirt of the legendary psychiatrist and hypnotist Milton Erickson, MD; unconditional laughter, as taught to the world by laughter yoga founder Dr. Madan Kataria; mindfulness, a form of meditation shown by modern scientific research to offer many physical, emotional and cognitive benefits; and the three principles (thought/mind/consciousness), primarily as taught by Jamie Smart.
