Confidentiality: All information you provide will be strictly confidential. I 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 my written record about you.
Insurance: I suggest you think of my 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 I caution you not to expect them to do so.
My approach: I help people, while in hypnosis, connect with the reasons behind the issue they want to resolve. Once they understand the "root problem", they can resolve the program. They then replace the negative with positive thought patterns. My hypnosis sessions are leading towards a stabilized and improved health. They activate and enhance the self curing capabilities. The result is a higher quality of life and their by influences all other areas of life as well as relations in a positive way.
I do not represent my services as any form of health care or psychotherapy, and despite research to the contrary, by law I may make no health benefit claims for my services.
