Client Welfare


Members shall make the physical and mental well-being


of each client a prime consideration.




Client Anonymity


Members shall treat all clients with due respect and confidentiality


unless otherwise required by law to report crimes or if the


client is believed to be a danger to themselves or others.




Client Safety


Members shall not engage in verbal or physical abuse of any client.






Members shall never abuse a clients trust by extending services purely


for financial gain over the welfare of the clients.




Practice Limits


Members shall use hypnotism strictly within the limits of their training


and competence and in conformity to the laws of their state.






Members shall always be honest about the nature of their titles and


degrees when referring to them to the general public, the media, and


within the confines of our profession.




Referred Practice


Members shall engage in hypnotic work with a client regarding a severe medical


or mental disease only on written referral from an appropriately licensed


medical or mental health professional, except when otherwise


 provided for by state law.




Reasonable Practice


Members shall withhold non-referred hypnotic services if a client’s


 behaviour, appearance or statements would lead a reasonable


person to believe that the client should be evaluated by a licensed


health care professional. Members shall provide services to such


clients only after evaluation and with the approval of the


licensed health care professional.




Other Professionals


Members shall treat other professionals and professions with respect.
