Meet Dr. David James

Today we’d like to introduce you to Dr. David James.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Dr. David. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
After a career as a law enforcement officer and an Episcopal Priest, I obtained a PhD in Clinical Psychology and began a therapy practice. I became fascinated with helping people making powerful and lasting change. I discovered that when we come face to face with the possibility of change, we often develop resistance to the very change that we desire. I realized that traditional talk therapy took quite a while, so I began to study ways to help people overcome their resistance, which led me to the study and practice of hypnotherapy.

About four years ago I completed a fellowship at the Hypnosis Motivation Institute in Tarzana, California and after a year’s intensive training and supervision, I graduated with Honors and established my hypnotherapy practice.

I know work with people who want to embrace change and drop limiting beliefs so that they can follow their dreams. During this time I became aware of the mind’s power to change the body, so I studied psychoneuroimmunology (the mind-body connection), epigenetics and neuroplasticity. Now I work with people who struggle with addictions, illness and those who are interested in making powerful change in their life.

I also teach meditation practices in the San Fernando Valley and offer sessions for people who work with Plant Medicine to help them integrate their experiences.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
The biggest obstacle in my practice was to help people see that there are more in control of their mind than they ever thought possible. I’m blessed to work in a clinic with therapeutic professionals who are open to referring their patients to me so they can change life-long patterns and belief systems.

David James Hypnosis – what should we know? What do you do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
I am a solo practitioner who works within a Medical practice in Beverly Hills. I specialize in the BodyMind connection and help people make more change than they thought possible. I also use hypnosis to remove limiting beliefs so that people can experience success, abundance, and happiness in their lives.

As a public speaker, I present groundbreaking research into the connection between the way we think and how our body responds to those thoughts. My latest book, “Discover Your Magnificent Mind,” is a wonderful introduction to my work and allows people to understand the miracle power within their own mind.

Working as I do with people who are serious about change, I am privileged to help people from all walks of life on their journey to wholeness and success.

What is “success” or “successful” for you?
Success is the ability to make the change that we desire so we can experience love, joy, peace, and passion regardless of the particular goal that the client brings to therapy.

Since my process requires a commitment to lasting change, I ask my clients to develop very clean intentions as to our work together. Then with that intention as a foundation, we work together to make the magic happen.
