Hypnosis is effective with a large number of issues and areas. However, Hypnosis’ Practitioners do not under any circumstance, diagnose any illnesses or conditions nor do they purport to replace the treatment of a Medical Doctor or Psychotherapist. Should a Hypnosis Practitioner suspect that a client undergoing Hypnosis is suffering from an undiagnosed illness or condition, they would immediately refer the client to their primary care physician.
Hypnosis cannot, and should not, stand alone as the sole medical or psychological intervention for any disorder. Hypnosis should not be used instead of appropriate medical, dental, or psychological treatment, and any individual with a medical or psychological problem must consult a qualified health care provider for diagnosis and professional advice. Hypnosis should only be practiced by those who have been appropriately trained, who practice appropriately, and within the scope of their training, rules and legislation.
