Notice: “THE STATE OF TEXAS HAS NOT ADOPTED ANY EDUCATIONAL AND TRAINING STANDARDS FOR THE PRACTICE OF HYPNOTISM. THIS STATEMENT OF CREDENTIALS IS FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY. The services we render are held out to the public as a form of motivational coaching combined with instruction in self-hypnosis. We do not represent our services as any form of health care or psychotherapy, and despite research to the contrary, by law we may make no health benefit claims for our services. Under Texas law a hypnotist may not provide a medical diagnosis or recommend discontinuance of medically prescribed treatments. If a client desires a diagnosis or any other type of treatment from a different practitioner, the client may seek such services at any time. In the event our services are terminated by a client, the client has a right to coordinated transfer of services to another practitioner. A client has a right to refuse hypnosis services at any time. A client has a right to be free of physical, verbal or sexual abuse. A client has a right to know the expected duration of treatment, and may assert any right without retaliation.”
Redress: Eric is a Certified Member of the National Guild of Hypnotists, and practice in accordance with its Code of Ethics and Standards. If you ever have a complaint about his services or behavior that he cannot resolve for you personally, you may contact the National Guild of Hypnotists at P.O. Box 308, Merrimack, NH 03054-0308, (603) 429-9438, to seek redress. Other services than our own may be available to you in the community. You may locate such providers in the telephone book.
Fees: We have free consultations. Sessions are by appointment only. We require an advanced payment (credit card/check/cash/Pay-Pal) to hold and confirm an appointment. Clients making cancellations, missing appointments or rescheduling on the same day as the appointment will be charged for the time scheduled for that day. The basic charge for our services is $100.00 + tax per hour. Stop Smoking is 2 sessions--$150.00 + tax for the first and $100.00 + tax for the second. Group rates are available for Weight Loss and Stop Smoking. Phone sessions are $100, up to the first hour. CD and MP3 recordings are $150.00. You will be given 30 days notice of any change in fees. We do not accept insurance, but will assist you with the papers.
Confidentiality: We will not release any information to anyone without a written authorization from you, except as provided for by law. You have a right to be allowed access to our written record about you.
Insurance: We suggest you think of our services as something that you will pay for personally. That will both protect your privacy and help you value the work you are doing more. In general, insurance companies do not like to cover hypnotic services, and we caution you not to expect them to do so.
Our Approach: We believe in the old saying, “People don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care.” We take a personal interest in each client and we do our best to help them achieve their goal.
Client Signature: I have received and read this Client Bill of Rights and understand what I have read.
