Regulation

Post  jason on Mon Jan 21, 2008 7:11 am

I think it is an excellent idea providing it is done correctly from the outset and for the right reasons. The policing of it is very difficult

IMHO:
I am always Insured and abide by a strict code of ethics that anyone can view and I always join a regulatory body even though it is optional. The trouble we may have is if those bodies set up to govern the Industry, just view it as a meal ticket. I have seen it in numerous industries whereby companies are forced to follow certain guidelines that are there to protect the end consumer. The result is that companies now spend more time completing the regulatory red tape and ensuring they are compliant with the bodie's rules than they do looking for the best deal for the client. This means they have to employ extra staff or extra time and that cost is passed onto the consumer thereby ripping them off and isn't that the very thing that these bodies want to stop ?? whilst in theory it is a fantastic idea and I am very much behind it I hope it doesn't turn into a situation where the Therapist spends so much time filling in forms and guidelines and money on joining the bodies that it actually ends up increasing the price of treatments and costing the Therapist their living.

I agree

Post  Lightmessenger on Mon Jan 21, 2008 10:23 am

Yes Jason, I totally agree with your post, I think this should be regulated, unfortunatley the charlatans spoil it for the genuine therapists out there, I will be interested to see how this unfolds, the powers that be always make it sound beneficial to all concerned and then hey presto! they have something up their sleeves!!!

completely agree Jason i feel a bit uneasy about regulations as regulations need to be measurable and this work is imposible to measure a bit like counseling you cant say if it helps someone as someone could leave feeling really upset but it was what they need to release at that time.
and aaaaaarg red tape with regulations and training that costs the earth could some with it too when thats not what its about.
ooh i just thought what are the hypnotheropy regulations and guide lines like because that is similar, i have studied the counselling guidelines and i often look at the negative rather than the positive and there are positives in it of i imagine protection for clients and us and maybe if it had a regulation that all practitioners should seek personal support too that would be good, and regulations against negligence, people out there just for the money, keeping yourself safe, self healing, perhaps a supervisor for you to check in with and them to check in with you. we dont need to worry any way because this is all common sensne and louise is teaching us these things tooo, to be respectful of the client (dont really like the word client ) and haw we deliver things. and to keep ourselves safe ext ext
ok ive just babbled a bit.
lots of love

Regulations

Post  jason on Thu Jan 24, 2008 6:32 am

The hypnotherapy profession has no obligatory regulation.There are societies that you can join, they all do pretty much the same thing provide you with a code of ethics provide certain criteria for CPD and basically just check that you are Insured as they take your XX each year. How they police that you are logging CPD following the code of ethics, I don't know

Me personally I belong to the Association of the Institute of Clinical Hypnosis affiliated with the school, I abide by their code of ethics that are pretty much common sense i.e. never take on clients for personal gain / confidentiality / professionalism respect and work with other health professionals etc etc. I also have access to supervision and and a whole host of very experienced clinical hypnotherapists at any time. There is also peer group support and a network for referall should I need it. The AICH have 4 meetings a year where we have guest speakers and lectures that ensure CPD, on top of that I am also becoming a member of the James Braid Society that meet more a less once a month again a similar format with guest speakers so that should keep the CPD up. I also am working towards a DHP and MCH qualification at the ICH this takes a load more further study in the form of master classes which again you attend classroom lectures but you also have homework - self study - assessments and case studies. I also carry PL insurance for 2 million. there are loads of bodies out there that I could join as well however will they do as much for me ?

a Difficult Subject

Post  Soul Shepherd on Thu Jan 24, 2008 11:59 am

Hi,

Like the other posters, I have mixed feelings about this subject, on the one hand as Louise says, unsuspecting public should be protected from charlatons, as all too often people just want to take your money and run as it were, and often these kind of people will charge the earth as well as having a disclaimer basically stating that as they work in a psychic, spiritual line results are not guaranteed or may not be what the client thinks they want.

Often in complementary therapies though a lot of people gain new clients through word of mouth, and or recommmendations from exisiting clients, which I think is the best way of choosing someone to give you this kind of service, also phoning and speaking with a person first is brilliant as in this way you can see if you feel you resonate with the person before parting with any cash! I used this method when I first learnt Reiki and it is so important in this line of work that you trust someone before entrusting your mind/body/soul to them to help you change or grow in some way.

However, I think it is much more difficult to regulate some aspects and types of complimentary therapy as results can vary and also can change as rainbowbrite mentioned, often in order for healing to take place a period of clearing/detoxing is needed. I think anything where a person is at risk of suffering physical damage ie from Massage type body work, or Acupuncture is most needed to be regulated as this is one area where a person could suffer physical injury.

Energy work like Reiki, White Time, Sekhem are any kind of healing involving channelling of energy is much much more difficult to regulate as the energy being used mostly comes from out in the Universe and although everything in the Universe is created through sacred geometry and therefore if you like precise measurements, the energy itself whist measurable on certain specialist and expensive equipment is not going to be available to the majority of these kinds of therapists. Where now a Reiki healer for example will with time start to use their higher self as well as that of their client in order to most benefit the client how on earth could you regulate something like that?????

Also with so many people practisiing energy work all over the world how on earth could it be policed as such & how would it work, as many people operate purely through the Internet and would not necessarily be traced either.

Most genuine practitioners of all energy and other therapies have liability insurance, so perhaps it may be better for any official bodies to publish guidelines that include acceptable therapists having insurance as this in itself can protect the client to a degree. To be honest I have never heard in all my years practising Reiki professionally of anyone making a claim against a Reiki therapist. At the very least woud be the difficulty of a client proving that any symptoms they may have were caused by a energy treatment.

Phew another long posting Embarassed sorry folks!!!!

Namaste
