Earlier this week I received my re-certification as a Consulting Hypnotist from the National Guild of Hypnotists. In order to be certified as an active member in good standing, you must meet the Guild’s continuing education standard and be free of ethical and criminal complaints. I’m proud to say that I doubled the Guild’s continuing education requirements and even had an article on hypnosis published in the Guild’s journal.

One key to success in hypnosis is to be comfortable and feel a rapport with your hypnotist. That’s why not all hypnotists are right for all people. If you’re considering hypnosis, and you should, make sure to meet with your hypnotist before starting any sessions to make sure that they are right for you. You also want to make sure that your hypnotist is a member of the Guild in good standing. Ask to see their certification or check them out on the Guild’s website. This way you know that your hypnotist has been trained properly, practices ethically, and continues to expand their knowledge every year.
