WSH374 – Scott Sandland on Hypnotic Legacies

Scott Sandland has been a hypnotherapist since 1998. Throughout his career, he has worked on the Drug Rehabilitation Center’s clinical teams as well as inside dentists and doctors offices while running a private hypnosis clinic. He is the Clinical Hypnotherapist and Executive Director of Goal Oriented Hypnotherapy – The Newport Clinic as well as the Founder and CEO of Hypnosummit and the Hypnothoughts LIVE conference. Scott has been featured multiple times in publication, including the LA Times, The Orange County Register, and has made guest appearances on hypnosis podcasts, including multiple appearances on the Work Smart Hypnosis podcast.


Scott joins me today to discuss the power of creating hypnotic legacies. We discuss what inspired Scott to create the HypnoThoughts LIVE conference and community and the important factors for staying relevant and creating lasting value in the hypnosis industry. We discuss what Scott believes our true legacy is as hypnosis professionals and the moments that Scott is most proud of since he began hosting the conference. We also discuss what you can expect at HypnoThoughtsLIVE 2022, the fun new networking events taking place this year, and how his early experiences with impostor syndrome and self-doubt impacted the way he plans the conference.
