The undersigned client acknowledges that they have been informed of the following information:

Hypnotherapist/coach agrees to provide professional services in accordance with acquired training and experience, giving undivided attention during scheduled consultations to facilitate client-centered sessions.

The therapeutic use of hypnosis can elicit information and insights from the deeper mind, and utilize the power of one’s inner resources. Hypnosis involves a relaxed mental state, similar to daydreaming, meditating, or being absorbed in a good book or movie. Many people experience a deep sense of calm, mental clarity, profound relaxation, and an enhanced ability to vividly imagine or visualize scenarios. In the hypnotic state, we have access to a part of our mind that is open to ideas and solutions. The client's attention is focused inward, while they still remain aware of what is going on in the world around them. The hypnotherapist utilizes interviews, discussion, and hypnotic methods dealing with underlying issues whenever appropriate, with the goal of achieving effective and lasting results. Hypnotherapy can help clients discover their inner creative abilities to develop positive thinking and feeling and to transform undesirable habits, beliefs, and behavior patterns. Therapeutic goals are to achieve freedom from restrictive thought and belief systems, to cultivate inner resources for solving problems, facilitating self-healing, restoring the authentic self, developing motivation, achieving goals, and fulfilling potential.

Coaching involves partnership between the coach and the client in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires the client to fulfill their potential, gain self-understanding and insight, live authentically, examine and potentially re-write life scripts, improve relationships and communication skills, practice self-care, and set healthy boundaries. It is designed to facilitate the creation/development of personal, professional, relationship, or life goals and to develop and carry out a strategy/plan for achieving those goals.

Client is solely responsible for creating and implementing their own physical, mental, and emotional well-being, decisions, choices, actions, and results arising out of or resulting from the hypnotherapist/coach and client relationship. Services to be provided do not include the practice of medicine or psychotherapy. Hypnosis and coaching are non-diagnostic, and are not a substitute for medical treatment, but a complimentary modality that engages the mind, body, and spirit for optimal healing, performance, and well-being.

The use of hypnosis could elicit memories of past events that may or may not be literally true. It is possible that events under hypnosis will be distorted or misconstrued, 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.
