Top Ten Tips When Considering Visiting a Hypnotherapist.
DO NOT VISIT A HYPNOTHERAPIST UNTIL YOU’VE READ THE FOLLOWING:
Over the years James and Sue have heard countless clients tell horror stories about therapists they have visited.
So in order to help clients make the right decision when choosing a therapist we have put together the following checklist:
- Does your therapist work from home or from an established professional office?
- Does your therapist have insurance? No insurance company in their right mind would insure someone who could possibly cost them money.
- Does your therapist practice twenty other therapies? If they all work why do they need so many and can they really be a specialist in ALL of them?
- Do you know anyone who has been treated by your therapist and would they recommend them?
- Does your therapist belong to a professional association? It is a good idea to check an organisation’s website to get a feel for how professional the organising body is. James and Sue are members of the IAPH, their governing body can be found at www.successfulhypnotherapy.com
- Can your therapist assure you of confidentiality? If a therapist works from a back room in a house can you be sure that you cannot be overheard?
- Is your therapist a full time practitioner, or just dabbling in a part time interest?
- How much previous experience of treating clients with similar symptoms to yours does your therapist have?
- Will your therapist design a programme specifically for your individual needs or goals or do they rely on giving out a ‘one size fits all’ programme?
- When you meet the therapist ask yourself ‘Do I feel comfortable with this person and do I feel confident that this person will be able to help me?’
