Client Informed Consent Agreement
for Hypnotherapy Sessions at Maja Healing

UPDATED ON JANUARY 15TH, 2024

Leaves Shadow

Before we proceed with the hypnotherapy session, Maja Healing requires all clients to read and sign this Informed Consent Agreement. This is to ensure that you are fully informed about the procedures, risks, and potential discomforts involved in the treatments we offer.  

 

Nature of Treatment

During a hypnotherapy session, clients typically experience a state of deep relaxation and focused attention, facilitated by the guidance of a trained therapist. Within this therapeutic environment, you may explore subconscious thoughts, feelings, and memories that contribute to their current challenges or concerns. Through dialogue and suggestion, the therapist will help you uncover and address underlying issues, promoting self-awareness and empowerment. Hypnotherapy often targets specific goals, such as overcoming phobias, managing stress, or breaking unwanted habits. Sessions are tailored to each client's unique needs and preferences, fostering a collaborative and supportive therapeutic relationship.

Confidentiality

I understand that all information disclosed during sessions is strictly confidential, and there will be no recording of any kind. I also agree not to record the session in any way, shape, or form. This confidentiality agreement extends to the director of Maja Healing for supervision purposes only.

 

Limits to Services and Assumption of Risks

Therapy sessions carry both benefits and risks. Therapy sessions can significantly reduce the amount of distress someone is feeling, improve relationships, and/or resolve other specific issues. However, these improvements and any "cures" cannot be guaranteed for any condition due to the many variables that affect these therapy sessions.

During the therapy session, experiencing uncomfortable feelings, physical unease, and discussing unpleasant situations, memories and/or aspects of your life are considered part of the therapy session and are considered risks of the therapy session.

After the session, there is typically an integration period where uncomfortable feelings may still be felt, and/or physical discomfort and unease may occur (for example, this may include fatigue, headaches, aches, and feeling emotionally sensitive). These are also considered risks of the therapy session. The integration period will range from a minimum of 3 days to a maximum of 14 days after the session date.

How to Prepare the Session

● Please prepare in one or two sentences what you would like to address.
Below this sentence, you may include more details such as when you experienced this, what tends to be the triggers, how long you have experienced this, and whatever else comes to mind. If you have several points you wish to address, please also prepare them.

● Please make sure to eat before the session as you will be requiring energy for the 3-hour time frame you will be with me.

● Please avoid the following:
1. Any coffee or strong caffeinated drinks within 2 hours of the start of the session.

2. Drinking alcohol within 12 hours of the session.

3. Any mind-altering drugs (natural and synthetic) within 12 hours of the session.
4. All hallucinogenic 4 days before the session.

● Prepare to be as relaxed, open, and flexible for the session.

Please know that it is not in the interest of any HHHypnosis hypnotherapists to extend the number of sessions to resolve the topic. We each can do our very best in resolving the topic fully and totally in each session, though, we will only move with the flow of how your subconscious processes. This is important for your overall well-being. Finally, it may occur that we may find it necessary to address other unexpected issues first (known and unknown) before we can fully address the main topic you are looking to resolve. Therefore, please also come to the session as open as possible to explore and resolve your topic.
