Q -- What about credentials? I see some Hypnotists who
advertise they are doctors or have a Doctorate in Hypnosis or even a PHD in Hypnosis.
A -- Well there may be some Hypnotists who really are doctors.

a member of the National Guild of Hypnotists (NGH), I strongly adhere to our ethics and business practices. I was glad

I prefer to be ethical about my credentials. I am a Hypnotist. I do not do
therapy. I have real credentials. And by being ethical, I can sleep at night with a clear conscience.
I am not a Doctor or PHD, nor do I play one on television. But I do get referrals from Physicians,
and Professionals in the Mental Health Field on a regular basis - and have even had some as clients! And you know why?
Because they like the work I do for themselves and their patients!
