TERMS OF SERVICE INCLUDING ELECTRONIC CONSENT
I. DISCLOSURE OF SERVICES
In recognition that millions of people receive a substantial volume of healthcare services from complementary and alternative health care practitioners, most (United States) states’ laws allow access by their state residents to complementary and alternative healthcare practitioners who are not providing services that require medical training and credentials. The following disclosure is provided to help you understand the nature and scope of services provided by hypnotherapists.
The purpose of a program of hypnotherapy is for vocational and avocational self-improvement and as alternative, adjunctive or complementary treatment to healing arts services licensed by your state. A hypnotherapist is not a licensed physician or psychologist and hypnotherapy services may not be licensed by your state of residence. Services are non-diagnostic and do not include the practice of medicine, neither should they be considered as a substitute for licensed medical or psychological services or procedures. When your goal or objective for hypnotherapy involves a medical or mental health origin or component, you must obtain a Healthcare Referral from a licensed provider in order to continue to receive hypnotherapy services.
Hypnosis works with the power of the subconscious mind to change habits and behaviors. The subconscious mind is considered to be the source or root of many of our behaviors, emotions, attitudes and motivations. Hypnosis is believed to be a powerful tool for accessing the subconscious mind and creating improvements in our lives.
Services consist of a program of conditioning, including an undetermined number of private sessions, depending on the client’s individual needs. Various modalities may include Hypnosis, Emotional Freedom Technique, Dream Therapy, and others. The hypnotist will to the best of his or her ability endeavor to accomplish the objectives of the client’s sessions. While hypnosis may be an effective technique for many purposes, the effectiveness may vary from individual to individual, and no specific results or progress can be promised or guaranteed.
During hypnotherapy sessions, clients remain completely aware of everything that is going on. In fact, many people experience a hyper-awareness where sensations are perceived enriched and vivid. The ability to visualize or imagine is enhanced. Deep relaxation is common. Many describe the hypnotic state as a complete and total escape from physical tension and emotional stress, while remaining completely alert. Others may experience enhanced feelings of well-being while the conscious mind relaxes and even wanders. While adults in hypnosis may become very quiet and physically relaxed, children in hypnosis often may open their eyes, talk, giggle, fidget, play or otherwise move around.
The use of hypnosis could elicit memories of past events which may or may not be literally true. It is possible that events under hypnosis will be distorted or misconstrued. Memories or images evoked under hypnosis are not necessarily accurate and may be a construction or a composite of memories. Without corroborating information, it is not possible to determine whether a specific memory is true or false, even if it seems true to the client.
While it is the ethical practice of Hypnotherapists to keep information confidential, information revealed in hypnotherapy is not subject to the psychotherapist-patient privilege. A court may order disclosure of information learned in therapy. In addition, the Hypnotherapist is required to report any threats of harm to self or others in many states in the United States.
The following DEFINITIONS apply to the agreements below: “YOU” and “YOUR” refer to Transformation Roadtrip LLC which is the Provider of the Hypnotherapy Services referenced in this agreement. “I” and “MY” refer to the Client receiving the services, and “WE” and “OUR” refers to the Parties of this agreement.
