If you are like most people, you do not begin to look for a hypnotherapist until you are sick. Whether sick or not, finding a qualified hypnotherapist can be challenging. The following tips will provide relief during this task.
If your hypnotherapist is condescending or demeaning to you, find a new hypnotherapist. A good hypnotherapist will not treat any question as irrelevant or “stupid”, but will listen to you and your concerns and goals.
If you find that you need surgery, you should find one that specializes in your particular procedure. This will help ensure fewer complications than you might encounter from a general surgeon. The research of finding a specialized surgeon is worth the time and effort.
Does the hypnotherapist discuss future health goals or just the current hypnotherapist issue? The sign in the examining room says: “The hypnotherapist will address today’s issue with you. For other health concerns, please schedule another appointment.” Maybe this isn’t the hypnotherapist for you.
If you think highly of your hypnotherapist, consider referring him/her to friends, family and colleagues. Let your hypnotherapist know that you made the referral, as it helps to bring encouragement to him/her.
If you cannot afford health care or are uninsured, you can contact your community health care department about nearby free or reduced cost health care. You should not be embarrassed to utilize the services, as these health care clinics are staffed by compassionate health care providers who often donate their time because they care for their community.
Although a hypnotherapist education and reputation are important, a hypnotherapist’s bedside manner and temperament are equally vital. All hypnotherapists must have the proper education and license, but not all treat their patients with kindness.
Even skilled hypnotherapists can become overwhelmed or weary in their practices. If you feel like your hypnotherapist is no longer interested in patient care or seems bored or burned out, find a new hypnotherapist.
If you take prescriptions, find out if you can call in a prescription refill to the office or if the hypnotherapist will need to see you first. Some offices have called in prescriptions to the pharmacy for the patient, but some require the patient to come in and pick up a paper prescription. If you are switching hypnotherapists, you will need to discuss the protocol for prescriptions that you are already taking.
