-- Can a Hypnotist guarantee their work? Or that Hypnosis will work for me?
A -- Can they?
Yes. A person can "guarantee" anything, but that doesn't mean anything.
NO! At least not if they're ethical.
When clients ask me this, I think they’re really saying, “Are you magic? Can you MAKE me change?”
They want the results, but they don't want to do anything themselves.
Hypnosis is a joint effort between the client and the Hypnotist.
A Hypnotist cannot ethically guarantee you will get 100% success from the work
they do with you.
No Hypnotist can guarantee
human behavior – yours or any other client’s behavior.
Just stop and think for a moment.
Will a Physician guarantee the medicine will work for you or the surgery will be successful?
Will an Attorney guarantee they’ll get you out of a speeding ticket?
Your success depends on YOUR desire and
commitment to make a change, your motivation to change, and your willingness to follow the suggestions and even home work
the Hypnotist gives you.
If you think
a Hypnotist can guarantee you’ll get rid of 100 pounds in 30 days, and you can still eat ice cream and cake and have
thirds and fourths every meal, you just might have some unreasonable expectations.
Here’s what I do in my practice:
I guarantee I’ll do my best to help you make the changes you want to make by talking to you
and finding out what the best suggestions will be to use with you to get the best results for you.
But then, I ask YOU to guarantee to me you will follow my directions and accept
the suggestions I give you to help you with the process. I even have you sign what I call a “Commitment Contract”
stating just that. Of course, it’s not a legally binding contract, but it does alert your SubConscious Mind that you
ARE serious about this and you really do want to make the change. It’s just a tool I use to help you better.
AND, I also commit to doing my part of providing the very best suggestions
and guided imagery I can, to assist you in this program to help you - my client - use self Hypnosis instruction to make the
changes you want to make, as quickly, easily, and as comfortably, as possible.
