The therapist should not be drawn in to having that all-important Initial consultation over the phone; it is important that the therapist sees the client’s body language in response to their questions. Only by talking to the client face to face and reading the client’s body language, will the therapist be able to clearly identify the modalities in which the client functions most often, and on which future screeds need to be designed around.

“Why is the initial consultation so important? What factors will an ethical therapist cover at this time?” 2023 Our personality and belief system is shaped from when we are born as we experience different things; learning things that our subconscious has stored as being necessary for our survival. If we have a negative concept of ourselves it’s the hypnotherapists job to find out as much information about the client as possible, therefore reprogramming a positive concept into the clients subconscious by using positive suggestions, this is why an initial consultation is so important.

In this essay I will describe and discuss what takes place during the meeting and explain some of the ethical issues that may face the Therapist The consultation should last for about 30 minutes. The Therapist will use this time to gain information about the client. In turn it gives the client the opportunity to assess for themselves, whether working with the Therapist will be beneficial for them. The initial consultation can be offered for free by the Therapist, but of course that is a matter of choice. If a Therapist decides that they do not wish to give this 30 minutes as free, they need to be aware that, if they are unable to assist the client further and need to refer them on to a Therapist more able to help, the client may feel that they have been unjustly charged for a service they have not received.
