This depends largely on the person and the issue being addressed. A typical hypnosis process consists of an initial assessment/session and 2 or 3 follow-up sessions. Many people achieve their goal after the initial session. Some people keep a regular appointment for ongoing support, and others see me as needed.
An initial assessment/session is scheduled for 2 hours. Subsequent sessions are usually 90 minutes.
Session Fee: $200
If you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, please give at least 24 hours notice. A $50 fee (25% of the session fee) will be charged for late cancellations and missed appointments. I understand that there are unexpected situations and waive the fee when there is a pressing reason.
A credit card is required to reserve your appointment time. Your card will not be charged except under these conditions.
As a hypnotist my role is help you resolve everyday problems using hypnosis. I am not a medical doctor or mental health practitioner. I do not diagnose, prescribe, treat, cure, or heal any physical, mental, or emotional illness. The services I render are not a form of health care, psychotherapy, or counseling. The physical and mental well-being of each client is my primary consideration. I recommend that you seek medical and/or professional help when appropriate. Hypnosis is not a substitute for medical treatments or medications. I will withhold non-referred hypnotic services if a client’s behavior, appearance or statements would lead a reasonable person to believe that the client should be evaluated by a licensed health care professional, and will provide services to such clients only after evaluation and with the approval of the licensed health care professional. If you need a diagnosis or any other type of treatment from a different practitioner, I will assist in a coordinated transfer of services to another practitioner.
I do not perform hypnosis for unrealistic goals or inappropriate requests. For example, I will not hypnotize someone for another person to determine whether they are telling the truth, or to exert outside influence on them.
I am a Certified Member of the National Guild of Hypnotists and practice in accordance with its Code of Ethics and Standards. If you ever have a complaint about my services or behavior that I cannot resolve for you personally you may contact the National Guild of Hypnotists to seek redress.
I maintain the confidentiality of all knowledge and information concerning my clients. I will not tell anyone that you are my client. I may disclose information only when required by law or when authorized by those responsible for the client’s care.
