When selecting a hypnotherapist to treat you, what qualities should you look for? Well, the first thing you need to do is find out if your chosen contractor is licensed by an association which approved and allowed her to provide services to clients. This will protect the client just in case there is an instance of malpractice and will make sure that the professional who is involved will be held accountable. You can also contact the association to find out if your chosen service provider is affiliated with them.
Beware of the ‘bait and switch’!
If the professional makes use of other modalities like psychic readings or Tarot cards, save the money in your wallet and leave. You will most likely be treated to a ‘watered down’ version of what you are there for. Make sure that you only deal with a certified professional.
Can you cooperate with the hypnotherapist?
It is in your best interest to go with a practitioner who offers a free, face-to-face consultation so that you will know how she sounds like. You will also see how she conducts the treatment herself in the office, showing you the level of professionalism and demeanour.
Since you will be treated by her, the way you feel when she is around you will significantly affect the results of the therapy sessions. Are you seated in a comfortable chair? Is it calm and quiet in the office? These are things you will not be able to assess if your consultation is only over the phone.
Does your chosen therapist practice hypnotic testing?
If the hypnotherapist speaks to you over the phone about what she does, it will be like describing a hot fudge sundae. You would most likely know what it is based on association, although that dessert is best experienced when you get to see it and eat it for real. Knowing if they practice hypnotic testing is important so be sure to enquire about it.
