Terms of Service 

My Approach

I use an integrated approach of therapy, which incorporates Hypnotherapy, NLP, CBT, Positive Psychology & Energy Therapies to assist in therapeutic change.

Contraindications

For most people, hypnotherapy is a pleasant, gentle, and extremely safe experience. However, your safety is my number one concern and there are occasions where hypnosis would be contraindicated. This is mainly for issues such as:

Psychosis

Bipolar Disorder

Schizophrenia

Pathological Personalities

Senility

Other conditions such as epilepsy, narcolepsy, neurological issues and serious heart conditions may require your doctor’s approval. If in doubt, please advise me and consult your doctor.

Confidentiality

Confidentiality is within our relationship and within my relationship with my supervisor (your personal details i.e. your name and address are not discussed in supervision). I will discuss any breach of this confidentiality with you in the first instance, except terrorist action or unless I believe you are in danger to yourself or others and unable to negotiate with me.

If I see you somewhere outside of our sessions, to ensure your confidentiality, I will not approach you or act as if I know you. However, if you acknowledge me then I will acknowledge you. I may keep short notes from our sessions. Should notes be made, they are kept confidential and are stored in a safe, secure place.

Hypnofasting / Hypnotic Gastric Band / Weight loss and Management Programmes

HypnoFasting is not suitable for everyone. Fasting is not appropriate for you if you:

  • are under 18 years old

  • are pregnant or breastfeeding

  • ever had or have an eating disorder

  • train intensely for more than two hours a day

All Weight Management Programmes offer no dietary or nutritional advice. Please seek assistance from a professional in regard to these areas.

If you suffer from any dietary issues, diabetes, or heart disease, please advise the facilitator and check your doctor before commencing the programme.

 

Regression

Analytical Hypnotherapy is sometimes the best solution and it can include some regression. There are occasions when you may naturally and subconsciously go into regression. If you not wish to have regression therapy or for the therapist to continue with subconscious regression therapy, please let me know at the beginning of the session.

Cancellation & Late Attendance

Please give me as much notice as possible for the cancellation. For cancellations with less than 24 hours’ notice the full fee will be payable.
If you are late for your appointment we will still need to finish by the allotted time.
If you arrive for treatment under the influence of mind-altering drugs or alcohol, the session will be suspended, and the full fee charged. Further sessions will be at the therapist’s discretion and may be cancelled permanently.

If I think you would benefit from being referred to another therapist or specialist, we will agree to make the referral as soon as possible.

I reserve the right to cancel therapy at any time and to refuse prospective clients at my own discretion. Refunds for sessions cancelled by the provider will be processed in a timely fashion back to the original form of payment. 

 

I understand that the coaching & training I am receiving from Nicola Hayes is not a substitute for normal medical care. I have disclosed any known physiological or psychological issues and have been advised to discuss this procedure with any doctor who is taking care of me now or in the future. Additionally, I should continue any present medical treatment and consult my regular physician for treatment of any new or old illnesses. I understand I am paying for the time and expertise of Nicola Hayes and not the end result.
