The relationship between a Consulting Hypnotist and his/her client is an important one. A high level of trust and understanding between the two of you will increase the likelihood of success, so choose someone who:

  • Treats you as a unique individual and is perceptive of your needs
  • Is able to identify problem areas and to determine an appropriate scope of induction and treatment
  • Maintains objectivity
  • Does not allow his/her own agenda (or problems) to interfere with your treatment
  • Is respected by the medical & psychological community
  • Effectively handles surprises and emotionally charged situations
  • Respects your confidentiality
