Richmond Hypnosis Center Terms and Conditions

We (Richmond Hypnosis Center) offer a money back guarantee with no questions asked before the session is finished to clients who come to their first scheduled session and, before they leave that session, express to us that they believe they were not hypnotized.  

We offer a lifetime support guarantee to smoking cessation clients who attend their scheduled sessions.  If they do not quit in the allotted sessions then they can have free additional reinforcement sessions until they do quit.  And if they ever start smoking again they can return to us, free of charge, until they do quit!  For Life!

We also offer our “no weight gain” guarantee.  If you gain weight within the first 30 days of quitting smoking we will offer you hypnosis sessions to help you take it off until you succeed and take that weight off – for free.  

And we offer our stick-with-you guarantee to our weight loss clients.  We guarantee our weight loss clients in our gold programs who attend their appointments that you will reach your goal weight in the time allotted.  If you do not then we will stick with you offering as many successive monthly hypnosis reinforcement sessions as you need for free until you do succeed!

Richmond Hypnosis Center educates and coaches our clients in various types of self-hypnosis interventions customized to his or her needs.

This may include training in directive, non-directive and indirect hypnosis, as well as education and coaching in self-hypnosis, neurolinguistic programming, stress reduction techniques, access to audio/video and biofeedback resources and life coaching for personal and professional development as needed.

Richmond Hypnosis Center does not prescribe drugs, diagnose any medical conditions or provide treatment for such conditions. Richmond Hypnosis Center offerings are methods of hypnosis, visualization, guided imagery and relaxation (V68.20).

Success depends on clients keeping all scheduled appointments, listening to their included hypnosis recordings and following lifestyle change advice. 

Everyone is different as to the number of sessions it will take them to succeed.  Remember a traditional psychologist might ask for 60 or more sessions for a goal and keep a client on the couch for years.  Hypnosis tends to be much faster, but permanent success is not generally instant.  For example for the same goals a hypnotherapist can often help you to succeed in only 3-12 sessions (depending on the goal and the individual).

It is to the clients’ advantage to stick with the program and follow their therapist’s recommendations until they completely succeed.

Please  understand that it is impossible to guarantee the behavior of another human being.  Richmond Hypnosis Center does not issue refunds under any circumstances except as described earlier in this document.  Sometimes there are more psychological issues at work and mental health counseling is needed beyond the Richmond Hypnosis Center’s scope of practice. 

That scope of practice does not include treating any mental illness.  We only help with self-improvement goals.

There is a high demand for RHC therapist’s limited time.  When a client does not show up to their appointment it hurts other patients who cannot be helped during that time slot.

For instance we routinely have smoking cessation patients who need to reduce complications in Covid-related respiratory issues.  We have quitting smoking clients who need to stop in time for important scheduled surgeries (surgeons sometimes will not operate if you haven’t quit).

We have clients who are afraid of driving or flying who need help in order to travel for work, or for medical reasons or for big family events like weddings and funerals. So if you need to reschedule your appointment for any reason please always let us know at least 24 hours in advance can so we can make that time available to others.

Therefore, our policy is that if you cancel an appointment with less than 24 hours notice or do not show at your appointment without calling, Richmond Hypnosis Center reserves the right to charge you for the full amount for that time.  This can be in the form of a deduction from your pre-paid program credit (as if it was used).  Or we may bill the full cost of a clinical hours at our discretion.  

So please fulfill your promises to us and we will do everything within our power to do the same for you.  

We also expect all clients to be sober, not under the influence of illegal drugs and neither disrespectful or abusive.  We retain the right to refuse service to anyone.
