Client Bill of Rights
Contact Information: My name is Alethia Olmedo Perlasca. I can be contacted through my office 2113 W Oakey Blvd. Las Vegas, NV. or by telephone at 7023343080.
Education and Training: I am a Certified Member of the National Guild of Hypnotists and the International Society of Hypnosis and I do annual continuing education to maintain my training at a high level. The National Guild of Hypnotists is the oldest and largest hypnotism organization in the world and its certification is the most widely recognized credential for the professional practice of the hypnotic arts. I have a Master degree in Counseling Psychology with Emphasis in Drama Therapy by the California Institute of Integral Studies. A Master degree in Ericksonian Psychotherapy by the Centro Ericksoniano de Mexico. I was trained in hypnotism at the Ericksonian Center in México City and with Dr. Michael Yapko PhD. in his Clinical Hypnosis training.
Notice: AS THE STATE OF NEVADA HAS NOT ADOPTED EDUCATIONAL AND TRAINING STANDARDS FOR THE PRACTICE OF HYPNOTISM, THIS STATEMENT OF CREDENTIALS IS FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY. Hypnotism is a self-regulating profession and its practitioners are not licensed by state governments. I am not a physician nor a licensed health care provider and may not provide a medical diagnosis nor 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 hypnotism 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 sessions, and may assert any right without retaliation.
Redress: I am a certified member of the National Guild of Hypnotists, and practice in accordance with its Code of Ethics and Standards. If you have a complaint about my services or behavior that I cannot resolve for you personally, you may contact the National Guild of Hypnotists at P.O. Box 308, Merrimack, NH 03054-0308, (603) 429-9438, to seek redress. Other services than my own may be available to you in the community. You may locate such providers in the telephone book.
Fees: The charge for my services are $100 per session. You will be given 30 days notice of any change in fees. The client has 24 hours prior an appointment to cancel it without charge, passed those 24 hours the client will have to pay the session fully.
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 my written record 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.
My Approach: I believe that each person has a powerful healing mechanism inside them, which they can help access by tapping the subconscious mind, learning and implementing new patterns of behavior and thought.
Client Signature: I have received and read this Client Bill of Rights and understand what I have read.
