The next list of issues, ASA/CAP regulations state that hypnotherapy can assist with as long as the idea of will-power is mentioned and effort required that play a role in successful outcomes.



There are medical conditions that ASA/CAP regulations state that hypnotherapy has not been proven to be able to assist with. These are listed below for your information. The list is not exhaustive. Also, where stress and anxiety is a part of any of these medical conditions, this may be an area that hypnotherapy can play a positive role in. It’s important that you should never self-diagnose and always seek the advice of your medical practitioner first.



Please note that hypnotherapy is not offered as a cure for anything. Where it can be helpful is in a complementary role to existing treatment. Your doctor’s approval may be sought by your hypnotherapist for any conditions prior to any sessions.
