NLP, MER® and HYPNOTHERAPHY
This form covers some of the issues of law governing our relationship. Completing your purchase will let us know that you have read and that you understand what is written here.
MENTAL AND EMOTIONAL RELEASE® IS ALTERNATIVE OR COMPLEMENTARY HEALTH CARE AND THERAPY: Your mental and Emotional® Master Practitioner is a legal Complementary Healthcare Provider, and not a licensed Medical Doctor, Psychologist, Psychiatrist, Master's in Family and Child Counseling (MFCC), or a Master's in Social Work (MSW). The services you receive are not licensed in this state, nor are they regulated by a governmental body. The self-regulated holistic treatments and client-centered disciplines in which your practitioner is trained and in which she has experience include, consulting and coaching, Mental and Emotional Release®, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Hypnosis. We will always provide only those services in which we have been trained, and if we find that we cannot help you, we will refer you to a licensed person who can assist you. During your therapy session, we will use one or more of the following techniques: Neuro Linguistic Programming, Mental and Emotional Release®, and Hypnotherapy. By completing your purchase, you acknowledge that you have never worked with a licensed person on this problem. (If you have, you need to present us a letter of referral from that licensed professional before we start therapy. If you have been prescribed medication to take by that licensed professional, you need to present us a letter of consent from that person before we start therapy. This means a short written note stating that you have informed your health care provider of your decision to engage in Mental and Emotional Release®.) Further more, nothing that happens here in therapy should be construed as, nor should you believe that it is a substitute for the advice of a licensed professional.
WHAT TO EXPECT: Your alternative health care practitioner has been trained and certified in Mental and Emotional Release® at the Master Practitioner level and will be doing this technique along with Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Hypnosis. The therapy will probably be different from what you might have expected. In total, we will not spend a lot of time talking about the problem, just gathering information about it. In fact, most of the session(s) are about other things. It is very important for us to discover the internal thought process of HOW you create the problem. That means that we are looking for your strategy, or how you structure the problem. Because our focus is on structure, that means that, once we discover it, we can move on and focus on having the problem disappear very quickly. Because of this, your Mental and Emotional Release® Master Practitioner may cut short your answers or even talk about your problem in ways that you have never considered. She may even ask you questions that you do not totally understand consciously in order for your Unconscious Mind to make the changes you want at the unconscious level. It is important to do this so that we can reduce the time taken for the therapeutic process. If you have been in a conventional therapy session before, expect that this one will be very different, and quite a bit shorter.
YOUR ENROLLMENT in NLP, MER® Individual Sessions are valid for one (1) year from the date of purchase. If you are unable to attend the specific dates and location for the Program for which you enrolled, you may attend the same Program at a later date within a 1-year period from the date of purchase.
YOUR CHOICE, YOUR RESPONSIBILITY: During the sessions, we will offer you advice and other ways of looking at your problem and its solutions for your consideration. You hereby agree that whatever we discuss is only our perspective and is not binding upon you, nor is it a prescription. If you want to discuss our suggestions with someone else, you should discuss them with a licensed health care provider. It is your responsibility to communicate your results to us. Our liability is limited to the amount paid for the therapy.
CANCELLATIONS: Should client fail to give 24 hours notice, or are considered a “No Show,” any booked session may be forfeited. We reserve the right to reschedule due to illness, weather, technology malfunction, or other circumstances beyond our control.
MENTAL AND EMOTIONAL RELEASE®: The techniques are a process of active imagination where the client imagines floating above their Time Line and letting go of their negative emotions and limiting beliefs. Then the client is also asked to imagine creating events in their future that support their goals or outcomes. Mental and Emotional Release® has demonstrated results in a broad variety of presenting problems. It is a powerful technique which allows clients to make long-lasting changes in a very rapid way. Your practitioner is certified as a Mental and Emotional Release® Master Practitioner by the Association of Integrative Psychology.
NEURO LINGUISTIC PROGRAMMING (NLP): NLP is a model of communication--how we communicate to self and others--and how that communication creates and affects our behavior. As a study, it is a synthesis of cognitive and behavioral philosophies which focus on the information coming in through the neurology (cognitive) and the programs we run inside our heads to produce the behaviors (behavioral) we do. Your practitioner is certified as an NLP Master Practitioner by the Association of Integrative Psychology.
HYPNOTHERAPY: This is the use of trance to make changes at the unconscious level. Hypnosis has been used to produce unconscious change with clients since 1843. Since Hypnosis may be used during your session, for your safety, you should make sure that you are totally wide awake before driving or doing any other activity that may require concentration. Your practitioner is certified as a Hypnotherapist by the Association of Integrative Psychology.
