WE ARE NEVADANS.

HYPNOSIS IS A NATURAL STATE THAT CAN BE USED TO HELP

PEOPLE TO RELAX AND GAIN MANY BENEFITS.

Hypnotherapists in Nevada have offered their services to the public for many years.

They have many satisfied clients.

There has never been any evidence that their practice poses a risk to public health and safety.

There are professional Hypnotherapy associations to provide Codes of Ethics.

There is professional indemnity insurance to protect clients and practitioners.

Yet because of a legal “loophole”, hypnotherapists in Nevada have suddenly been told to stop helping their clients, to “cease and desist”.

IF YOU WANT HYPNOTHERAPISTS TO PRACTICE LEGALLY IN NEVADA AND IF YOU HAVE A NEVADAN ZIP CODE PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION

  1. I was planning on opening a hypnotherapy school in Nevada. My hypnotherapy practice that I used to own in Hawaii as help so many people and saved lives through smoking cessation. I’ve helped clients with pain management and much more. Hypnotherapy is referred to and suggested for use by very prestigious organizations such asbthe mayo clinic. Let’s move forward in time with utilizing what kaiser medical journal refers to as under utilized.

    Please continue to allow hypnotherapists to help people in Nevada.
    Thank you. Please feel free to contact me to discuss. Mindy Ash, Ccht. 952-567-3877

  2. Nevada Legislation
    Nov. 12, 2014

    Dear Friends

    We’ve heartily welcomed the excellent news from the ongoing efforts to gain freedom to practice for hypnotherapists in Nevada. The formal withdrawal of the Cease & Desist (C & D) letters by the Nevada Board of Psychological Examiners (NBPE) at its meeting on 7th November means that hypnotherapists in Nevada can work, at least for the time being, without the threat of legal enforcement and penalty. This is a great relief, obviously.

    An enormous amount of work has gone into achieving what has been done so far, for instance, contacting local media, writing to and telephoning the NBPE and Attorney General’s office, and right at the beginning, researching documents from 1995 when the Board added hypnosis to their scope of practice. This research led to the discovery that there were specific assurances given at that time that non-psychologists would not be prevented from practicing hypnosis in the state. This is a very strong position, and is one of the cornerstones of our case going forward. We very much appreciate the contribution of everyone who has played a role in getting us this far, in particular, Bud James, who has attended the NBPE meetings and made many contacts, Nancy Epstein, whose communications with the Attorney General’s office first discovered the possibility of the cease and desist letters being withdrawn, Kevin Cole and others who have made significant contributions. They deserve our congratulations and thanks.

    Many congratulations also to Hal Taylor, the attorney hired by Hypnotherapists Local Union 472, and Dr. Bruce Bonnett and George Kappas of Hypnotherapists Local Union 472 for all their work. Their cooperation in sharing information both from us to them and vice versa, has enabled us all to maximize the effects of our resources.

    One of the most heartening developments in this situation is the alliance which has been formed by hypnotherapists working in Nevada and by some hypnotherapy organizations. Our field is diverse, which contributes to its creativity and richness, enabling us to access a wide variety of clients, and whatever our original training or orientation, it is clear that we all have core common interests. A local journalist who did an in-depth report on the Nevada situation was particularly struck by this spirit while doing her research, and as it’s relatively rare for us to see an outside perspective on the hypnotherapy community in action at a time of trial, you may be interested to read what she wrote in her article, “License to chill”, http://www.desertcompanion.com/article.cfm?ArticleID=1007.

    As well as extensive direct communications with the Attorney General’s office, the Board, and other local contacts, media items such as this article have also added impact to our efforts. The focus of our attention has now moved on to the next stage, which involves more challenges and opportunities. At the meeting, the Board has stated that they are intending to consider the position on the practice of hypnosis in the State, with at least one Board member expressing the view that hypnotherapists, if allowed to practice in Nevada, should be under the control of their Board.

    We know that our practice is safe and ethical, however, while we do not agree that we require oversight from the NBPE, we are willing to work in a cooperative spirit with anyone who has the interests of the public at heart, and we are now preparing data on our scope of practice, our training and practice standards, our ethics, our complaints and disciplinary procedures and our consumer protection, to provide reassurance for all concerned.

    We look forward to reporting to you on the next stage.

    With my best wishes
    Dr. John Butler
    President
    American Council of Hypnotist Examiners
