How to know that you are talking to a well-qualified practitioner
Ask lots of questions. The first time I went to a hypnotherapist I had no idea what to expect. The session was quick. First, she asked only asked a couple of questions. Next she hooked me up to a karaoke machine, then read a generic you ‘feel better’ script to me. I didn’t know it at the time, but all of these things were clues that she wasn’t well qualified.
Even worse, when I went back for a second appointment (I was desperate), I asked some basic questions. She couldn’t answer them. That was the big red flag I couldn’t miss.
Hypnotherapists are not oracles, but someone who is properly trained and well qualified will be able to answer your questions. A good hypnotherapist will be able to explain things like :
- The difference between hypnosis and hypnotherapy
- How the brain processes information and why knowing this can help make change fast and easy
- The downside to only using positive affirmations and scripts
