IACT Certifed Master Trainer, Dr. Eric G. Schneider
New York City

IACT Certified Master Trainer, Dr. Eric Schneider

Hypnosis is a tool just like a hammer - what really matters is whose hand it's in!
...and that is what makes Dr. Eric so unique.

A graduate of the prestigious Harvard Mind-Body Institute, and Board Certified Clinical Hypnotist and Certified Master Hypnosis Trainer, Dr. Eric Schneider brings the latest in neuro-science and research into his work.

Sheng-Han Kuo, M.D., Neurologist, Columbia University Medical Center, NY, says the this about Eric": "Dr. Eric is one of the most innovative clinicians I know. He gets to the core of an issue very quickly and helps people in a non-jugemental way. He is very gentle and caring for his clients as he incorporates state of the art knowledge in neuro-science into his practice and draws from many different disciplines to ensure his clients receive the highest quality of care. He is an amazing guy."

Since 1987 Dr. Eric has been helping his clients reach their goals! Possessing a unique ability to get to the heart of the matter quickly, he is able to offer his clients an efficient path and process to resolve their issues and attain their goals. Instead of using a particular "method" of hypnosis, he tailors his approach to his clients. He has been in Private Practice since 1987, and combines his gifts of spiritual counseling with hypnosis.

Here is what some of his clients say:

"Oh Eric...you are my lifesaver with your pragmatic, precise, supportive, wise words--and that's not EVEN touching the hypnosis part. I cannot thank you enough for how you've been helping me."
—Joan Allen, Actor, New York City

"You opened up my world for me. I found myself emotionally dead and did not know which way to turn and what to do with my life....That all changed after a short time with you, you are so kind and so very understanding. I wake up each morning now with a song in my heart."
—Joyce Van Patten, Actor, New York

"As a health care professional, I evaluate with extreme care those to whom I entrust my own care. Eric is 'the real deal' and I would refer family and patients to him with comfort and trust."
—Richard Patt, M. D., Bucks County, Pa.

"Dr. Eric has a gift for creating and holding a safe space, while swiftly going to the heart of the matter. Our work together has helped me to transform old stuck patterns that no longer serve me. I would highly recommend him!"
—Jacqui von Voss, Licensed Acupuncturist, Centreville, MD

"For 4 years, I struggled with anxiety and panic about my oral board exam. As a result of our surprisingly short work, I was able to not only take the test with confidence I actually enjoyed the test taking process. Thank you so much for your help and support."
—David Gurley, M.D., Assistant Clinical Professor of Emergency Medicine, Suny Downstate Medical Center

"Clarity about myself and my relationships, has been the most powerful and transforming aspect of working with Eric for me. You don't sit around complaining or mulling endlessly about the past with Eric--you really work on the issues at hand, and thus take action to change your life for the better. He's the best!"
—Jean Godfrey-June, Beauty Editor, Lucky Magazine and Author of "Free Gift with purchase"
