Hypnotherapy Disclosure Statement
By purchasing any hypnosis product(s) whether as in person sessions or as audio downloads, purchaser/user acknowledges that he/she has been informed of the following information:
Jennifer Powell (hereafter referred to as “hypnotherapist”) provides professional services in accordance with acquired training and experience to facilitate Client’s benefits. Services provided utilize induction of hypnosis, and methods and principles used to help clients discover their inner creative abilities to develop positive thinking and feelings and to transform undesirable habits and behavior patterns. Therapeutic goals are to achieve freedom from restrictive thought and belief systems, to assist in solving personal problems, developing motivation and achieving goals. Client may be taught the use of self-hypnotic techniques to assist in achieving goals. Hypnosis is not a state of sleep, but is a natural state of mind that can produce extraordinary levels of relaxation of mind, body and emotions. The principles and theories upon which hypnotherapy is based are accessing and utilizing the power of one’s inner resources. Hypnosis can transcend the critical, analytical level of mind, and facilitate the acceptance of suggestions, directions and instructions desired by the Client. The therapeutic use of Hypnosis can also elicit information and insights from the inner mind.
Services to be provided do not include the practice of medicine, as Hypnotherapist is not a licensed physician. These services are non-diagnostic, and are complementary to the healing arts services that are licensed by the state. The California State Legislature has determined that state licensing may not be conferred upon an occupational group for purposes of status or prestige. The primary purpose of licensing laws for legally defined Healing Arts and Mental Health professionals is to protect public health and safety. The Legislature finds that these non-medical complementary and alternative services do not pose a known risk to the health and safety of California residents, and that restricting access to those services due to technical violations of the Medical Practice Act is not warranted. Accordingly, Hypnotherapists are not issued licenses by any State Governmental Agency to engage in their professional services.
I understand that these sessions are not psychotherapy but are a therapeutic alternative aimed at creating positive changes in my life. User is completely responsible for proper use of product. Relaxation and hypnosis audios should never be used while the user's attention is required elsewhere such as while driving a vehicle or operating any kind of machinery.
I, Jennifer Powell, have acquired the education, training, experience, and qualifications to perform the services offered to my Clients. Certified by American Institute of Hypnotherapy (AIH), California.
