Client Bill of Rights

IMDHA-recommended information important for you, as a client, to know

Hypnosis is a very effective method for you to pursue self-improvement. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

Contact Information: My name is Chad Schultz. I can be contacted by phone at 210-764-9760 or by email at [email protected]

Education and Training: I was trained by Anne King, a Certified Hypnotist operating in Boerne, TX as Anne King’s Hypnosis Center. I completed my training and achieved certification through the International Medical and Dental Hypnotherapy Association in February 2010.

Notice: THE STATE OF TEXAS HAS NOT ADOPTED ANY EDUCATIONAL AND TRAINING STANDARDS FOR THE PRACTICE OF HYPNOTISM. THIS STATEMENT OF CREDENTIALS IS FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY. Under Texas state law a hypnotist may not provide a medical diagnosis or recommend discontinuance of medically prescribed treatments. If a client desires a diagnosis or any other type of treatment from a different practitioner, the client may seek such services at any time. In the event my services are terminated by a client, the client has a right to coordinated transfer of services to another practitioner. A client has a right to refuse hypnosis services at any time. A client has a right to be free of physical, verbal or sexual abuse. A client has a right to know the expected duration of treatment, and may assert any right without retaliation.

Redress: I am a certified member of the International Medical & Dental Hypnotherapy Association. I practice in accordance with their Code of Ethics and Standards. If you ever have a complaint about my services or behavior that I cannot resolve for you personally, you may contact the International Medical & Dental Hypnotherapy Association at 4110 Edgeland, Royal Oak, MI 48073 (248) 549-5594, to seek redress. Other services than my own may be available to you in the community. You may locate such providers in the phone book or online.

Fees: See the Services & Fees page for full details.

Confidentiality: I will not release any information to anyone without a written authorization from you, except as provided for by law. You have a right to be allowed access to any written records I have about you.

Insurance: I suggest you think of my services as something that you will pay for personally. That will both protect your privacy and help you value the work you are doing more. In general, insurance companies do not like to cover hypnotic services and I caution you not to expect them to do so. If your company provides reimbursement for wellness costs such as gym memberships or smoking cessation clinics, you may want to check if they reimburse hypnotic services as well. Even if they do, they may have special rules or restrictions, or have only a few purposes (such as weight management and smoking cessation) that they will reimburse.

My Approach: I believe that the subconscious mind is basically benevolent and knows what you need in order to be happy and satisfied with life. I believe people have been prevented from following that instinct by habits of thought, feeling and behavior learned elsewhere, and I believe those habits can be changed.

The services I render are held out to the public as a form of motivational coaching combined with instruction in self-hypnosis. I do not represent my services as any form of health care or psychotherapy, and despite research to the contrary, by law I may make no health benefit claims for my services.
