Education & Training Statement
I have over 2500+ hours of hypnosis training from the following: The Florida Institute of Hypnotherapy, Tampa, FL a Florida Department of Education state licensed school, The San Diego Institute of Hypnotherapy, The National Federation of Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Virginia Hypnosis, and Sexual Freedom Hypnosis.
I am a Certified Member of the International Association of Interpersonal Hypnotherapists (IAIH), and I do 200-300 hours of continuing education annually to ensure my clients have access to the most effective modalities available for fast and effective positive change techniques.
Notice: AS THE STATE OF FLORIDA HAS NOT ADOPTED EDUCATIONAL AND TRAINING STANDARDS FOR THE PRACTICE OF HYPNOTISM, THIS STATEMENT OF CREDENTIALS IS FOR YOUR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY. Hypnotism is a self-regulating profession, and its practitioners are not licensed by state governments. I am not a physician nor a licensed health care provider and may not provide a medical diagnosis nor recommend discontinuance of medically prescribed treatments. If a client desires a diagnosis or any other type of treatment from a different practitioner, the client may seek such services at any time. In the event my services are terminated by a client, the client has a right to coordinated transfer to another practitioner. A client has a right to refuse hypnotism services at any time. A client has a right to be free of physical, verbal or sexual abuse. A client has a right to know the expected duration of sessions, and may assert any right without retaliation.
Redress: I am a certified member of the IAIH, and practice in accordance with its Code of Ethics. If you have a complaint about my services or behavior that I cannot resolve for you personally, you may contact the IAIH at 2901 W Busch Blvd, Tampa, FL 33618 (complaints must be in writing setting forth the basis of the claim). Other services than my own may be available to you in the community. You may locate such qualified providers through the IAIH. As my client you have the right to refuse any aspect of services, to completely terminate services at any time, or to choose another practitioner.
Fees: The charges for my services varies. Sessions run 1.5-2 hours. Fees are due at the time of each session in the form of cash, check, credit card, or other agreed upon form of payment. You will be given a 14-day notice of any change in fees. I have a 24-hour cancellation policy; clients are charged $35 to reschedule their appointment if they do not call to cancel or reschedule in accordance with this 24-hour notice. Hours paid in advance in the form of package deals are good for 6 months from their time of purchase. After 6 months of absence from hypnotherapy, these hours are forfeited. Packages are non-refundable.
Confidentiality: I will not release any information to anyone without a written authorization from you except as provided for by law. You have a right to be allowed access to my written record about you. As my client you have the right to complete and current information concerning any aspect of the professional/client relationship.
Insurance: I suggest you think of my services as something that you will pay for personally. That will both protect your privacy and help you value the work you are doing more. Most insurance companies do not cover hypnotic services, and I advise you not to expect them to do so.
My Approach: It is my goal to help you to achieve lasting results through the use of hypnosis, NLP, meditation and other related self-help modalities. Through the power of your own mind, I will assist you in reaching your goals in a way that you and I both agree to be in your best interest, and in a way that is in compliance with state and federal laws, as well as with the standards of the organizations to which I belong. I agree to use my experience to facilitate the changes as are mutually agreed to be in your best interest. I am professionally committed to helping you achieve your goals in a timely manner.
