What People are Saying
One of the most creative hypnotists I have ever met.
Milton Erickson once told me that David Calof is one of the most creative young hypnotherapists he encountered in his clinical career.
David Calof is one of the more interesting trainers in Ericksonian hypnosis. He trained directly with Milton Erickson, has a strong background in family therapy and trained extensively with Richard Bandler and John Grinder. He is a capable and original thinker who is warm and available, and most willing to demonstrate.”
