The Rightful Profession of Hypnosis
AN INTERNATIONAL HYPNOSIS FEDERATION’S MESSAGE TO ANYONE WHO SEEKS TO LIMIT THE PROFESSION OF HYPNOSIS:
- HYPNOSIS IS A LEGAL STAND-ALONE SELF-REGULATED PROFESSION
Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy is not a subset or component of any other modality. While some licensed practitioners may use hypnosis to complement their practice, hypnotherapy has a wider scope. Hypnotists, Hypnotherapists, Hypno Counselors and Coaches provide helpful holistic tools to individuals and groups. In essence hypnosis belongs to everyone. It is your natural ability to know the truth about you and your life.
- CONTROLLING SEPARATE PROFESSIONS VIOLATES ANTI-TRUST LAWS
Legislation that attempts to take away your right to go in and find out. Or to restrict a person’s right livelihood to put money in the pocket of members of any private organization, violates anti-trust laws. One company does not have the right to control an entire industry.
- HYPNOTHERAPISTS AND HYPNOTISTS HAVE A STRONG CODE OF ETHICS
Over 35 national & international organizations qualify, educate & certify hypnotists and hypnotherapists. Each organization has standards, ethics and adhere to their educational requirements. The International Hypnosis Federation (IHF) is a proud member of the Council of Professional Hypnosis Organizations, founded September 23, 1989 with member organizations representing in excess of 20,000 hypnotists throughout the United States and Canada. Many IHF members also support the good work of the AFL-CIO (Hypnosis Unions).
- NO CONTROLLING, SELF-SERVING ALLOWED
No private organization has permission to take your right to use hypnosis away from you. Nor shall any organization mislead you to believe that they are the only valid organization.
- FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHTS
Every person has a 1st amendment right of freedom of speech and has the right to hypnotically influence or motivate others. You have the right to learn self-hypnosis to influence and motivate yourself.
- HYPNOSIS HELPS PEOPLE TO BE AND FEEL THEIR BEST:
Clients set and accomplish goals to: Be Aware, Be at the Top Of Their Game, Birth With Ease, Be Creative, Do The “Right” Thing, Gain Control Of Thoughts, Get A Grip, Get High With Their Higher Self, Deal With Challenges, Eliminate Stress/Fear/Pain/Bad Habits, Energize, Be Happy & Healthy, Make Good Choices, Make More Money, Manifest Dreams & Goals, Heal Hurts, Lose Or Gain Weight, Motivate & Be Motivated, Stay Optimistic, Organize, Persuade, Relax, be Self-Controlled, Socially Adept, Spiritual, Sleep Well, Stand Up For Themselves and their truth and much more…
- 7. HYPNOSIS IS WELL RECOGNIZED
Hypnosis as many other modalities used by International Hypnosis Federation practitioners is recognized by the US Department of Education’s Classification of instructional programs as “Hypnotherapy-hypnotherapist” 9CIP 2000, 51.3603, and as a “legal profession” by the office of Administrative Law Judges Law Library as “Hypnotherapist.” Among the most respected organizations is the International Hypnosis Federation. Thank you for being here with us.
- AVOID CONTROLLING ENTITIES
International Hypnosis Federation members are certified in hypnosis, a stand-alone, self-regulated profession. Some have dual careers in more than one discipline. Our members, both certified and licensed, are dedicated to working together so the public has access to the powerful and empowering discipline of hypnosis. We recommend that you avoid any person, organization, institution or government who attempts to deprive you of your right to master of your own thoughts and actions.
Academics vs. Non Academics: Because hypnosis is wildly popular (and more people choose helpful hypnosis for wellness over medical interventions) some professions put hypnosis down in an attempt to kill the competition. Hypnosis and self-hypnosis is a proven wellness modality in thousands of scientific studies. A “lay hypnotist” is a derogatory term used by some licensing entities in an attempt to discredit professional hypnotists. Ironically, most licensed professionals have no instruction in hypnosis.
Spiritual Power Trips: Evangelists, faith healers and those whose income comes from veiled hypnosis sometimes preach fear-based suggestions against hypnosis. It’s fun to watch a skilled “faith” healer use rapid hypnosis inductions so the faithful (literally) fall into a deep hypnotic trance and powerful healing suggestions work wonders. It is not fun when they attempt to control your natural ability to relate directly with your higher self and spiritual guidance.
