The practice of hypnotherapy is not regulated at the federal level. This means educational institutions and professional certifying boards set their standards for minimum academic requirements, scope of practice, code of ethics, postgraduate studies and continuing education.

Hypnotherapy is an art form based on scientific methods. Just as an education in medicine, massage therapy or even counseling requires practical skills development with a clinical supervisor, so does hypnotherapy. You simply cannot learn it sufficiently from a book, some DVDs and a few online presentations.  In 2010 new standards were established which require a minimum of 400 hours of training before certification as a clinical hypnotherapist with the International Board of Hypnotherapy.



Hypnotherapy is an educational and self-improvement process that facilitates access to a person's internal resources to assist him/her in solving problems, increasing motivation, or altering behavior patterns to create positive change.

Hypnotherapy is not a substitute for medical treatment or psychotherapy. Barbara Stafford does not practice medicine or psychotherapy and her services are not a replacement for counseling, psychotherapy, psychiatric or medical treatment. No service or product provided is intended to diagnose or treat any disease or illness, psychological or mental health condition. Medical support hypnotherapy is used only as an adjunct to conventional medical treatment. Consultation with a licensed physician is required before medical support hypnotherapy services are provided.

Hypnotherapy is a proven, adjunctive method to complement such ongoing treatment and care. Because hypnosis and hypnotherapy are a series of self-help skills and their effectiveness depends on the client, no guarantee can be made regarding results of their use.
