How to Select a Hypnotist in New Jersey


There are many skilled, caring, well-trained hypnosis professionals in New Jersey—and there are those who are less qualified. When selecting a hypnosis professional in New Jersey, be discerning and feel free to ask questions—because there are no licensing requirements for hypnotists in this state. Hypnosis professionals practice under an exemption set forth by the Board of Psychological Examiners. While there are guidelines for practice, there are no specifics in terms of credentialing, training, or continuing education. Thousands of clients have successfully overcome challenges and increased their sense of well-being by using professional hypnosis services in New Jersey. Here are some suggestions for selecting a NJ hypnosis professional who is right for you ...
  1. Hypnosis, as practiced by consulting hypnotists or hypnocounselors, is used to assist people dealing with ordinary life issues. If you want to eliminate a negative habit, make healthier lifestyle choices, relax more easily, improve performance, build confidence, release a fear, etc... hypnosis may be a great choice for you. If, however, you wish to use hypnosis to help you deal with a medical issue or significant mental health issue, you should first contact a physician or licensed mental health professional to discuss your problem. When hypnosis is used as an adjunct to medical care or psychotherapy, a referral is generally required. (The hypnosis professional will advise you if this is appropriate.)

  2. Visit the website of the consulting hypnotist you are interested in learning about. Most hypnosis professionals have websites that offer information on hypnosis, services, procedures, certification, training and education, professional memberships, and other relevant information. It’s worth taking time to read through some of the contents. It’s advisable to do that before making your phone call, since reviewing the site might generate questions.

  3. Ask whether the hypnotist is a certified member in good standing of the National Guild of Hypnotists (NGH), an organization committed to quality, ethical service and the advancement of the profession. Most practicing hypnotists who are serious about their work belong to the NGH, the premier organization for hypnosis professionals worldwide. Certification by the Guild designates that specific training and continuing education requirements continue to be met. Also, NGH members abide by a strict code of ethics. You can verify NGH membership by contacting the Guild, in Merrimack, N.H., at 603-429-9438 or at www.ngh.net .

  4. Find out about training, educational background, and experience. You have every right to inquire about a person’s background. Most hypnosis professionals will gladly respond to your questions; if they don’t, that should raise a red flag. Anyone can hang out a shingle that says "hypnotist." Ask if the training was NGH-approved and state-licensed. That is your assurance that it was comprehensive, in-person training. People enter the hypnosis profession from many different fields—and with many different levels of education. Although a college education is not a requirement for obtaining Guild certification, you may feel more comfortable with someone who has a degree from an accredited college or university. It is the role of the hypnosis professional to act as a motivator, educator, coach, and guide—helping you to believe in yourself. She must be able to research and comprehend a wide range of information on the issues she works with, be able to create programs tailored to the needs of each client, and stay current in the field of hypnosis through continuing education.

  5. Ask about what to expect at your visits—and ask about fees. And, give yourself permission to be skeptical if spectacular results are guaranteed in one session. Find out if the sessions are one-on-one (they probably are), ask about the length of the sessions, and who will be conducting them. Make certain that the appointment hours will work for you. The person you speak with over the phone may very well be the hypnotist with whom you’ll be working—so you can get a sense of what she is like by having a brief discussion. There is a wide variation in fee structure, so go ahead and ask questions about pricing—and make certain you understand exactly what is included in the price you are given. Hypnosis requires reinforcement and repetition, so it is reasonable to expect that several sessions will be required (generally between three and six) to meet your needs. Sometimes more are appropriate; sometimes less. Each client is unique—and there are many variables. Be wary of anyone who tries to convince you to sign a long-term contract, or pay huge sums of money, up front, for numerous visits.

  6. Pay attention to the level of interest and professionalism exhibited by the hypnosis professional. While the initial phone conversation isn't meant to be an in-depth interview, you should be asked about the primary reason for your call, your main goals, and whether you are seeing a physician or psychotherapist for this issue. Notice if the person with whom you're speaking sounds interested in what you are saying. Is she asking questions? Does she answer your questions clearly? Does she sound credible and professional? Does she interact with you in a respectful manner? Does she sound as though she cares?

Going through this process will help to ensure that you find a certified hypnotist who is a caring, ethical, and well-qualified professional—and is someone with whom you can easily relate. Rapport and trust should be important factors in making your selection.
