The beauty of the internet is that it has opened up opportunities for therapists to offer online hypnotherapy services. This provides many benefits to clients, such as avoiding travel and parking, and opens up help to those who may not be able to access it otherwise. It also benefits me as a hypnotherapist as I don’t need to worry about booking therapy rooms. Even better, I can offer my clients a few timeslots later in the day.
Research has also shown that for many, online therapy can be just as effective as a face to face session. Just take a look at this article by Australian health psychologist, Jo Abbott. As Jo explains, online therapy can be a particularly effective option if you suffer from stress or anxiety.
Choose your hypnotherapist wisely
You may have noticed some practitioners offering online hypnotherapy over Skype, VSee or Facetime. I am one of these practitioners. However, the difference between me and some other hypnotherapists is that I’ve undergone additional training. As a potential client, it’s important to be mindful about the hypnotherapist you choose to see. It’s unethical for a hypnotherapist to be offering a service they are not adequately trained to perform but it seems to be a common occurrence in our profession.
You’re in safe hands
I’m pleased to say, I have the NCHP Certificate in Online Therapy. This puts me in a great place to offer hypnotherapy to my clients online and over the telephone through my virtual clinic. If you are interested in hypnotherapy online or by telephone, please do get in touch.
