All clients as required to fill out a medical questionnaire form before undertaking hypnotherapy with me here at Practical Hypnotherapy. In the form you will be asked to disclose certain medical information.
Whilst hypnosis is very safe, if you are epileptic or undergoing psychiatric treatment, then I would ask you to first obtain a letter from your G.P to confirm that he/she is happy for you to work with us using hypnosis.
Practical Hypnotherapy reserves the right to refuse to treat a person. Rapport and trust between the therapist and client in a prerequisite in the process and in achieving success. If you or the therapist feel that this is not there then either of you should bring this to the attention of the other and not go ahead with treatment. If this is the case I will happily recommend you to another hypnotherapist in the region.
I ask that should you wish to cancel you give 48 hours notice. Notice not given before that will render deposits non refundable as the time set aside for you may not be able to be filled. Should you wish to reschedule you will be asked to kindly leave another deposit. If sessions paid for in advance where clients fail to show there will be no refund given. Failure to give 24 hours notice may result in the client being requested to pay for the session. Rewards for referrals will not be issued if the client who has been referred cancels or reschedules giving less than 72 hours notice.
Whilst the widgets of my site indicate different geographical areas in Yorkshire, the majority of my work takes place at my office in Holmfield Mills (see map on all pages). Sessions can take place within clients home by prior arrangement (where mobility issues and/or phobic conditions mean a client cannot get to me) but this will incur a call out fee to compensate for the time and fuel involved.
I offer no guarantees with hypnosis. There is no “magic bullet” and, as with most treatments and services in life I cannot offer a 100% success rate although I will work to the best of my abilities to help you achieve your goals. Hypnotherapy is a two way process. I require clients to work with me and follow my instructions carefully. I have no figures when it comes to percentages of success. To attempt to do so would be dishonest. Each client is different in terms of how they respond to hypnosis, how they use their imagination and how they can follow instructions. I am here to help you and will do so to the best of My abilities.
If a returning client for stop smoking (smoking cessation) treatment fails to show for their appointment, Practical Hypnotherapy reserves the right to discontinue treatment and the back up session with be null and void. If further treatment is agreed upon then there will be a charge. The years support, if needed will include a 2nd session. If unsuccessful the therapist will support the client with suggestions of actions to take and may schedule in a third appointment at a time once the person has had time to reflect on their true desire to stop smoking (usually 2 to 3 months after the back up session). If the client does not wish to wait this time a back up CD can be offered. If The CD is accepted then there will not be a 3rd session, as by this time all avenues will have been exhausted.
The client needs to be 100% committed to stopping. Sadly, there is only so much that can be said to a client and so if there is a third session which is unsuccessful (a very rare place to be at) then support will continue for the remainder of the year but this will more than likely comprise of email contact advising the client on alternative actions. It cannot be guaranteed that a person will stop smoking although the methods used are the best that I can offer and refunds are not offered.
If a client who smokes tobacco also smokes other products, I cannot offer the years support as cannabis and the like add a variable that can hinder the process.
Clients or perspective clients are kindly asked not to arrive without an appointment . Please do not arrive more than 10 minutes ahead of your appointed time as client privacy needs to be respected. Poor behaviour or radically bad timing may result in the termination of treatment. If you are going to be more than 10 minutes late for your appointment then please do call or email. Whilst I can accommodate for clients who are slightly late, longer than 10-15 minutes may mean having to reschedule for a later date. It is more than likely that I will have other clients scheduled in for after your session. If you are seeing me as the last client of my day then I myself will have other plans after your session.
I do not offer emergency sessions and do not guarantee a call back when it is not suitable for me to do so.
Rewards for referrals will not be given when the referred client or clients either do not show or fail to give less than 48 hours notice for the rescheduled appointment. Needless to say, no rewards for referrals will be issue in any way if the referred client does not arrive.
If a session is paid for in advance, yet the client fails to show, a refund will not be issued as the time allowed for the session cannot be brought back. Doing so would mean a double loss for the therapist. A suitable time will be offered for another session but a fee will be required.
Sessions are strictly on a one to one basis.
