Education and Training:
I was trained in hypnotism by the National Guild of Hypnotists in Boston. I am a Certified Member and a Certified Instructor with the National Guild of Hypnotists. I earn annual continuing education credits to maintain my training at a high level. The National Guild of Hypnotists is the oldest and largest hypnotism organization in the world and its certification is the most widely recognized credential for the professional practice of the hypnotic arts. I have received a BS Degree from Southern New Hampshire University in 1980.
Notice: AS THE STATE OF MASSACHUSETTS HAS NOT ADOPTED EDUCATIONAL AND TRAINING STANDARDS FOR THE PRACTICE OF HYPNOTISM, THIS STATEMENT OF CREDENTIALS IS FOR 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 of services 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 National Guild of Hypnotists, and practice in accordance with its Code of Ethics and Standards. If you have a complaint about my services or behavior that I cannot resolve for you personally, you may contact the National Guild of Hypnotists at P.O. Box 308, Merrimack, NH 03054-0308, (603) 429-9438, to seek redress. Other services than my own may be available to you in the community. You may locate such providers in the telephone book.
Fees and Appointments: Fees for seeing a hypnotist for individual sessions at Valley Hypnosis are based upon a standard session rate of $250.00 per session, although packaged pricing may be offered. Clients must give 24 hours’ notice for changing appointments or cancelling appointments, or they will forfeit the appointment or pay a $100 rescheduling fee.
Insurance: We do not bill insurance companies for services, however, some insurance companies may reimburse you for services. Check with your insurance company for additional details. We suggest you think of our services as something that you will pay for personally.
Theoretical Approach: The hypnotists at Valley Hypnosis utilize hypnotic techniques and instruction to help clients make changes both consciously and subconsciously. Techniques include but are not limited to hypnosis, self-hypnosis instruction, relaxation training, visualization, instructional handouts and audio supplements.
Confidentiality: I will not release any information to anyone without a written authorization from you, except as provided for by law.
