No Testimonials Listed Here; Why Not?
Well the simple answer is that I am of the honest opinion that they are unethical.
What is Your Reasoning?
The reason is that the law makes it clear that all testimonials have to be verifiable as well as authenticated. Therefore posting a testimonial where a client of mine has thanked me for carrying out Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy would mean that I would have to reveal the name of my client and their personal details to a third party if required to do so.
What problems could this cause?
It would be a clear breach of confidentiality and in my mind totally unethical, so I will not do it.
Why is this so important to you?
You see your confidentiality is vital to me. Trust me I receive many thank you notes as well as cards and also clients will tell me face to face what a great job I have done but I do not need to post those comments all over my websites and promotional materials to be effective as a Psychotherapist and Hypnotherapist. Also some clients may write a testimonial for a Hypnotherapist just like me but then change their minds sometime later or wish their name was not made public. Another reason why I will never place my clients in that position.
Credibility is important is it not? Can anyone set up as a Hypnotherapist in the UK?
There is something in my mind and I hope yours too that says that your confidentiality is sacrosanct. I am accredited by the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council and the National Hypnotherapy Society both of which are on the Professional Standards Register for Health and Social Care. You may not be aware but Hypnotherapy is not statutory regulated within the UK, as such anyone can set up as a Hypnotherapist. The only way to guarantee you are seeing a professional is through the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council and the National Hypnotherapy Society accredited registers.
What standards do you abide by?
Because I am accredited and registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council and the National Hypnotherapy Society, I have to abide by the highest professional and ethical standards. So rest assured I am a highly competent, professional Clinical Hypnotherapist, Psychotherapist and Master Practitioner of NLP, who values your confidentiality to the full. As such you will not see testimonials on my websites or promotional materials. If you want to find out if I am the right therapist for you then please just call or get in touch via the contact form provided.
How good are you?
Well, I have been a full time Clinical Hypnotherapist & Psychotherapist for over twelve years, I am fully accredited and regulated as explained above, so I adhere to very high standards. Also let's face it, if I wasn't any good I would have gone out of business long ago. I wonder if you knew that many Hypnotherapists go out of business within their first year and also many are part timers and do not operate full time clinics like I do.
How clear on this are you?
So just to be clear I do not need my clients to write testimonials for me, or to post videos thanking me for the reasons given above and I would trust that you as a prospective client would place high value on that.
How can I contact you to find out more?
Firstly many thanks for taking the time to read this important information and as I said if you want to find out if I am the right Clinical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist for you then please just call me on 0779 258 4470 or use the contact form provided.
