Contact the Clinic at 800-960-1758 or click on the following link to complete the Clinic Contact Form. After your first contact with the Clinic, we will set up a free consultation for you with one of our Clinic Practitioners via your preferred communication method. Following your consultation, you will be asked to pay for your session(s) upon which time you will book your session(s) with your Clinic Practitioner.
After you have been connected with a Clinic Practitioner and completed your consultation, your Clinic Practitioner will provide you a private link to securely purchase your package through the Simplybook.me website.
Upon receipt of payment, the practitioner will contact you to schedule your sessions.
Note: You will make the secure purchase through the Simplybook.me interface via PayPal. You do not need to have a PayPal account to make this purchase and the system does not store your information. The merchant account name on your receipt will be Anahat Education Group, Inc.
Typically, most insurance companies do not cover hypnotherapy services unless they are performed by a medical professional or a psychiatrist or licensed mental health counselor etc. You are welcome to inquire with them and see if it is a reimbursable expense via your HSA.
No previous experience with Hypnosis or Hypnotherapy is necessary.
Yes, however, generally hypnotherapists are not licensed medical doctors or mental health practitioners. IHC Practitioners are required to get prescription, referral, supervision or direction from the appropriate licensed practitioner of the healing arts when accepting clients with medical, mental health or dental conditions. Your Clinic Practitioner will assess your situation and advise you accordingly within all federal, state, city and / or county laws. Your Clinic Practitioner is equipped with IAIH Referral Form for you and your licensed provider.
It is terribly inconvenient for your Clinic Practitioner to schedule time for you and to not have you show up. We, therefore, require a 24-hour cancellation notice, given directly to your practitioner via phone call, text or email. In the event of a lack of 24-hour notice, you will be charged the full price of the session or for pre-paid packages, one session credit equalling two hours of pre-purchased time.
Hypnotherapy can take time. It’s not always an easy or rapid process. It’s not a panacea or miracle cure. When you purchase a session or package, you are paying for time, not results. However, we do offer refunds under limited circumstances.
Refunds are not made after 6 months from the date of purchase.
Refunds are only provided under the following circumstances:
- You paid in advance for a session or a package, and after the consultation with your Clinic Practitioner, you decide not to move forward.
- You decide to discontinue sessions, and you still have remaining hours paid for.
Refunds are not provided for any of the following:
- Dissatisfaction with the Clinic Practitioner.
- Technical difficulties that interrupt your session.
- Not getting the results you wanted.

IHC Practitioners are self-employed, independent contractors and are not employees of IHC.
IHC generates leads for Practitioners. Practitioners work as subcontractors. IHC collects payment and pays Practitioners for completed sessions.
Yes. If you know of a Clinic Practitioner, please make us aware of this at the time or your call or inquiry. We will always do our best to match you with the best possible Clinic Practitioner.
No worries. Please contact the Clinic and we will work to find the right fit for you. You may have up to three free consultations.

A DEVICE with a stable cellular connection or stable access to the internet. This can be your phone, tablet or computer. Wireless is not a problem. You and your Clinic Practitioner will know in the first few moments of your session if the connection is sufficient. If not, you and your Clinic Practitioner will spend some time trouble-shooting it until it works for both of you.
A GOOD SPEAKER OR HEADPHONE WITH MIC ATTACHED (which you can find anywhere online).
A SETTING AND A TIME when outside interruptions will be limited for about 2 to 3 hours. Please be in a place where you can sit or lay down comfortably without distractions. You want to be able to have full access to your subconscious, so giving yourself some space away from others is important. NOTE: It is neither safe nor appropriate for you and your Clinic Practitioner to conduct a session while you are driving, operating any kind of equipment or when your attention to your surroundings is required. This includes while you are tending to children or your dinner on the stove.
HOW IT WORKS:
PHONE SESSIONS: If you and your Clinic Practitioner are doing a phone session, it’s easy. Your Clinic Practitioner will call you at the number you provided on the Clinic contact form. No different than calling a friend or relative.
VIDEO WEB SESSIONS: If you and your Clinic Practitioner are conducting our session via the internet, you will receive an email from them with your appointment date / time and link to join the web session. You will need to familiarize yourself with those programs in advance so as to not take away from your transformation time. You and your Clinic Practitioner will dial into the meeting platform, meet each other face-to-face, and move right into your session. NOTE: Be sure you have downloaded the meeting software on your phone or computer in advance.
For your security, all Zoom sessions have a waiting room and only you and your practitioner will be allowed.

Every client has different needs and each client moves through the transformation process uniquely, so the number of sessions necessary will vary for each client. Yet, typically clients enjoy shifts within three to six sessions. It depends on the issue and the client’s readiness for change. Your Clinic Practitioner will be able to provide more information about how many sessions they feel you may need.
As a Clinic Client, you will be required to complete the Clinic Client Participation Agreement and Disclosure Form (sample attached). Your Clinic Practitioner will forward this document to you, customized with their specific information, prior to the start of your work together. Please read the document as it includes the terms and conditions for working with your Clinic Practitioner.
