Getting A Guarantee From Your Therapist

The main question that many clients have for the therapist is,will it work and what is the success rate?

In other words, what guarantee is there that your money and time will be well spent.

Let me answer that though the medium of video.

A level of service is the only genuine guarantee that a therapist can offer. Expectation of success is an important part of getting results but ultimately the power resides with the client as to how the therapy concludes. It may sound like excuses but its the truth.

Success rates are often published by therapists. These have to be taken with a big dose of salts. Any therapist’s personal success rate cannot be compared with clinical trial effectiveness due to the massive difference in the way the evidence is collected and treated. This is the reason it is considered unprofessional to publish one’s own ‘success rate’ because it cannot be properly compared to any other therapist or clinical trial in an accurate way.

The best safeguard for the client is to get a good sense of the therapist before starting therapy, to ask all those awkward questions and to have a clear sense what you are entering into. To ask about therapy methods,number of sessions and aftercare are all important issues to address before shelling out cash.

What Is A Registered Hypnotherapist?

Mmm, I was hoping you wouldn’t ask me this one, cause it’s a bit embarrassing.

When you see the sign Registered Hypnotherapist it really only means that somewhere someone has started a register of hypnotherapists and has given out the title Registered Hypnotherapist for the price of an annual fee.

At the moment hypnotherapy is not statutory  regulated meaning the title of hypnotherapist  is not a protected title .

The reason for this is that hypnotherapy is not deemed dangerous to health whereas for example dieticians could if they try hard enough really screw you up. Of course most therapists of any persuasion are usually dedicated to the well being of their client but not all therapies have the power to harm. Crystal Healing might take your money but it wont kill you….probably.

Anyway, just for the record here are the main hypnotherapy registers.

The General Hypnotherapy Register

The Register for Evidence Based Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy

The National Council for Hypnotherapy
