Therapeutic Hypnosis: Positive Goals

Dan Griese is a Certified Hypnotherapist serving the Minneapolis-St. Paul Twin Cities Area. In addition to his private hypnotherapy practice, Dan is the host of the Bright and Clear Meditation Podcast, with listeners across the United States and in countries around the world.


Dan's interest in how our thoughts and subconscious mind affect our behavior and experience led to a program of study at California's Behavioral Science Centers and its College of Hypnotherapy, HMI in Los Angeles. HMI has earned the distinction of being the first college and clinic of hypnotherapy to achieve National 


Accreditation recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. HMI is home to over 75 hypnotherapists providing clinical hypnotherapy services.

Dan’s success as a hypnotherapist is strongly supported by his professional experience in the fields of radio-television broadcasting and education. As a state-licensed educator with teaching experience in both public and private schools, Dan motivates clients to achieve at higher levels. One area of hypnotherapy helps students with test anxiety. Additional techniques help reduce stage fright and performance anxiety for musicians and actors.


His experience as a radio-television announcer and on-air broadcast meteorologist offers success-building tools to anyone who is trying to enhance their public performance and presentation ability. Industry-related work for business leaders and management executives has taken him to Australia, Asia, Southeast Asia, the Middle East, Africa, Europe, South America, Mexico, Canada and across the United States teaching and training diverse audiences. This wide, cultural exposure greatly influences Dan’s successful work as a hypnotherapist. Today, Dan combines his experience in business, public speaking, technology and teaching to create effective and unique solutions for clients seeking personal growth through hypnotherapeutic techniques, creating the motivation and enthusiasm that leads to success.
