Weight control hypnosis has gone from being perceived as pure quackery to an approach gradually winning over new converts. Its overall effectiveness is not really known, although no weight loss approach is for everyone. As with consulting with any service provider of any kind, you should know who you’re dealing with.
Does this practitioner have proper accreditation? Ask for it, look at it and then check it out. It’s better you know about bogus credentials before you start.
When considering weight control hypnosis, the single most important thing to remember when looking for a qualified hypnotherapist is that no practitioner should only have a CHT (Certified Hypnotherapist) after his/her name. In addition to a CHT, a practitioner of weight control hypnosis should also have some indication s/he is a licensed health care practitioner.
Licensed health care professionals usually have seven to nine years of university coursework, supervised training in internship and/or residency programs, and their hypnosis training is in addition to their health care training.
Also: Be sure that hypnotherapists have PhDs from accredited institutions. An accredited university has certain standards their graduates must meet to be licensed mental health professionals
If the accreditation is good, are there former clients that you can contact to discuss their experiences? Don’t settle for one or two names: request a list of six or more. Prepare questions in advance to be sure you learn what you want to know.
Hypnosis sessions for any reason can be expensive over time. Investigate all other treatment options possible as well. You deserve the best chance to reach those goals and change your life.
